Today was haircut day here in the house.

Did my husband’s hair and beard. It came out pretty good. This is about the fourth haircut I have given him. I always trim his beard.
I haven’t been to the salon since I think maybe February. My hair had gotten ridiculously long. I just could not take it anymore. I have been doing the ponytail and hat thing for a while. Well today I took the scissors to it and chopped off about 3”. I managed to get it pretty even and I can still pull it back into a small ponytail, if I need to. I am not going to post a pic, but take my word for it looks and feels a whole lot better.
This should buy me a little time.

Wow. Guess I saved some money, too. Lol
I just don’t feel comfortable going to the salon yet.

I’ve been cutting my own hair. It’s probably not great but I don’t get out much.

Good for you!

I buzz mine, too. What remaining little hair I have.

Got a heircut this weekend. She blew some can of something on the seat, twice on the arms. I sat down, she got a fresh gown out of a package.

Got some scissors out of blue liquid and dried them with a fresh napkin.

I held my mask while she cut around my ears, and put it back on as she finished off.

Then went home and showered.

A couple of months ago my wife watched several haircutting youtube videos, bought some fancy haircutting scissors and cut my hair. It came out pretty well. I'm about ready for another cut. I think it helps that she's an artist so is very practiced conducting precision work with her hands. Painting in oils is just like cutting in hair, right?

Mrs Markintosh has now cut my hair three times. I got to color her hair this last weekend...that was scary! Turned out okay!

I buzz with my beard trimmer once every 3-4 weeks.

Messed up last time and started with the #3 rake instead of the #1 and cut it too close over the ears.

It's just about back to a decent length.

I wish I could trust my husband to do even a little touch up on the back of my hair, but I know his limitations, and he isn’t getting near my hair with a pair of scissors. Lol

No haircut yet. I've gone a bit over a year.

I usually get 2 haircuts a month at the barbershop. $25 (tip included) a visit. So that's a $50 a month habit. Shelter in place for 6 months now. 300 bucks saved. Woohoo. The wife is getting pretty good with the clippers. Not a pro-level skin fade, but not too shabby.

Nice job, rgG smiling smiley Adaptability.

Been a cult user of the flowbee and other attach-to-your-vacuum cutters since the late 90s. I cut my own about once a month.

My wife converted to a silver sister about 15 years ago, and leaves it Joni Mitchell style straight. Tends to clip her own ends.

Terrific!

We did our home salon last week, with the Wahls trimmer I posted here earlier. I did my adult son, he did mine.

Funny, I think it looks BETTER on Zoom than my standard hair cut, but it's not as nice in person IMHO.

I'll take that as a win.

Under COVID ROE, I'll wait before going to a barber or SuperCuts (not the same thing).

I couldn't stand my hair length either.

After watching some YouTube videos, I decided it wouldn't be easy to do it right and I'd be wearing a mask when out and about, so get to hackin' and a hewin'.

I took a lot of the sides and a lot more off the top and back.

Every day for a few days after that, I'd trim around my ears.

I still have a few strands here and there that ducked the scissors, but they're hunted down on a regular basis.

The back edge is a little uneven and 'blocked', neither of which I like.

But I'll practice a couple more times before considering visiting a professional.

Same here.

After cutting it looked like it was hardly touched, but when I felt it, it was like I could wear a smaller hat.

A lot of hair and length was cut!

Fortunately, even with locks shorn, I still have the strength of ten men, as my heart is pure.


Cat got a brushing yesterday, but no haircut.

Ok, just be be clear— you do have a cat and that's not a euphemism?

I bought a set of pet trimming cordless clippers last year to give our matted long haired cat a trim. They worked well. Then COVID, and my hair got to epic unmanageable shaggy dog length . It curls at about 1 inch of length. My wife calls it 'permanent bed head'. So I asked my daughter's fiancee to help. We went outside, and she did a damn near USMC buzz cut. A bit short, but whatever. That was three months ago. I'm about due. I may go to my daughter's salon again, one of her friends there needs the work.

Mrs. Zealand has cut my hair twice now and it's due for another. (not so) Little Zealand also acquiesced to having his way too long hair cut recently so he's good for a while. (relatively) Littler Zealand has not had a cut in over a year and is going the long hair route and can do a reasonable ponytail now. We'll see how that works when school is in-person again. Mrs. Zealand is neither of the dark- nor short-haired variety so no cuts means little difference for her. She'd like a trim-up but it's pretty far down her covid-annoyance list.

I flatter myself that I top the list. All hail the King!

I haven't touched my beard or hair, (except trimming around my pie hole occasionally) for nearly two years.

I'm letting my freak flag fly for one last time before going back to a buzz cut that I do myself.

The covid thing gives me the ultimate excuse to be slothful.

Funny thing is my beard is nearly all white, but my hair is still it's natural brown color.
