I am waiting to buy a mirror to put up in the garage . I don't want all that hair in my bathroom to cleanup . I am going to lay out a trap in the garage and go at it soon . My hair is not thin . It is thick , bushy and does what it wants . Combing my head doesn't do much , it goes where it wants to . If it were thin or manageable , I would just let it grow long and put it in a ponytail .
Wahl clipper. 5 on top. 4 where it makes the bend to the sides. 3 on top sides and back. Then use the “R” on the right side above and behind the ears. Then use the “L” on the left side above and behind the ears, Then a 2 on the lower back. Then call to the missus to trim up the neck with no attachment. Been doing this since retirement 9 years ago. I aint no handsome sumbich and gonna keep it that way.
I’m ready to have my wife give it a go. I hated buzz cuts when I was a kid, so no thanks on that plan. We’re still at least a couple of weeks off in the Great Lakes State from shops opening, but I did receive this from the gal who cuts my hair, and I’m not sure I’m going back.
When I started going there a haircut was $20. For a year or two it’s been $25, plus tip. She takes care of the beard and a shampoo too. A bit pricey but I have to tell you I’ve found few barbers in my life who could give a decent haircut, so whatever. However, a 30% increase will take that to $32.50, almost $40 with a 20% tip!
I empathize with their situation but I think I need an alternative.
