    It's kind of a bitch getting the back part so it's even shoulder to shoulder isn't it?

    Oh. You mean on top of your head.

    Put me down for a no, then.

    I was in a foreign prison for silly reasons. When I got out, I had lice and shaved my head with a straight razor.

    More tame than I thought. . .

    I thought for sure it was going to be along the lines of "Do you wipe your own a**?"

    Occasionally I'll pony up and go have one of those pretty girls do it at a Sport Cuts so she can rub my scalp.

    But usually I cut mine once or twice a year whether it needs it or not. It usually turns out OK from years of watching them do it, but as mentioned getting the back part is kind of tough.

    One time I really messed up so I just kept cutting it shorter and shorter and finally just shaved it bald. I honestly don't care to walk around with a cold scalp, so I am more careful now.

    #8 82 days ago

    For sure...I don;t trust anyone else touching my hair

    #9 82 days ago

    In all honesty I usually go to one of those chain places -- Crooked Clips I call it cause that's usually how it looks when I leave.

    Mullett takes care of that right now

    #11 82 days ago

    Never tried it but using a #0 all over will get the job done and save you about $20 every six weeks.

    #12 82 days ago

    My great niece got her hair caught in the intake side of a leaf blower recently
    Does that count?

    Chunk of hair had to be cut away and a concussion
    She's ok
    Kids are resilient

    #14 82 days ago

    I do cut my own hair. I just use a #5 all over and my wife trims up the back.

    #15 82 days ago

    I used to, but I imagine that was part of the reason I was single for so long

    Finally somebody gives me a good reason to have a wife.

    I have my hair professionally done. I know. I know. First world problems

    Well, the cut and the trim

    I could give you a ton of reasons, but you wouldn't believe me.

    That deserves a thread all by itself...

    I cut my kids hair all the time .... Never had any problems.

    I’ve cut my own hair once a month for 25 years. Let’s do the math on how much I have saved.......(20x12)25 = $6000. Not bad!

    #26 80 days ago

    My wife has cut mine for almost 40 years.

    #27 80 days ago

    I get my wife to cut my hair and a few other things I won't mention here.

    #28 80 days ago

    Easy with one of these

    Haven’t had a true haircut in a decade.

    Not the ones the general public sees, no. All others are maintained "in house''.

    I'm with this guy. Half ass bald already, I either shave it or let it grow and when I am ready the electric shears come out. And no, I do not use them for the lower regions!

    Pretty much sums it up for me, hehe

    #33 79 days ago

    My wife has cut my hair for years. I can't remember the last time I paid for a haircut.

    #34 79 days ago

    Been cutting and highlighting my own hair for about 5 years now (used to cost ~$120 a visit). After the guy I trusted disappeared, I got an awful cut by the next two stylist attempts, so I gave up and figured out how to do it myself (seems few have any idea how to cut shaggy/mid-length hair--if this were the 70s, I'd have no issue). Have had better results ever since, and can't guess at how much time and money I've saved overall.

    #35 79 days ago

    Yes and the $$ I save goes to pinball

    Was a haircut $20 in 1993?

    #38 79 days ago

    I do and haven't paid for a haircut for 15 years. My bald friends hate me for using the Whal

    #39 79 days ago

    Have cut my own hair for going on 25 years now. Every month with a #1 clipper attachment. Gets a bit cool in the winter

    Quoted from PoMC:

    Same. The money saved has literally paid for several pinball machines.

    $150.06 is the average a person spends a year on haircuts!!

    #42 79 days ago

    Yes, 5 to 1 fade with a Wahl trimmer similar to the one posted above. When I was paying to get it done, it'd look good for 3 weeks then start looking raggedy.
    I got it cut one last time like 7 or 8 months ago and have just maintained that cut with weekly trims. I was freaking out a little the first time and it took like 40 minutes, I do it in less than 10 minutes now.

    #43 79 days ago

    yeah i cut my own hair when i am just doing a short cut. Wahl trimmer.

    problem is sometimes i miss a spot in the back and i don't realize it. Last time it looked like i was starting a rat tail.

    #44 78 days ago

    I could use a haircut.
    Next time I am in the OC O-din
    I might have you do the job.

    Thats what rat tails are for.

    #46 78 days ago

    My wife just grabbed me a new Wahl at Costco for xmas. They had a deal with the big trimmer, small trimmer, and a bunch of extras for $20. That'll last me another 10 years.

    #47 78 days ago

    Wahl trimmer with #4 attachment and my wife finishes up where I can't see.

    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    On sale today on Amazon....$23

    Great idea. Mine are all black which makes it hard to find the above mentioned #4 attachment so I leave it attached to the trimmer.

    #48 78 days ago

    You've gotta be a really cheap sob to not use a barber, assuming you have some hair on your head that needs to be trimmed.

    #49 78 days ago

    It's the freedom and convenience of not having to brush or comb a buzz cut. Not the cost of getting it cut. I love it.

    #50 78 days ago

    My beard is also very closely trimmed so it matches my cut.
