Just learned to cut my own hair

After this whole thing is over, barber shops are likely going to lose customers who found out that self hair cut at home is not that hard after all.

I, too, need to get my hair done, but I'll wait for a professional.

I wear a goatee, and try to have a trim, professional appearance. I work with phsucians and pt's at my local VA hospital and appearance is important. Even learned to trim the hair over my ears with a sharp paur of scissors

I learned cutting my hair a long time ago. I tend to have it short. The equipment cost about as much as 4 haircuts and lasts for years.
I can effortlessly cut it like a Hollywood star would have it (Telly Savalas comes to my mind).

I just did my own too! I'm happy with the way it came out (but us guys aren't known to be too picky). The only part I didn't try myself was shaving the hairline at the base of my neck. I had the wife do that later, when she got home from work. I will say, it did take me a while, quite a bit longer than when a normal barber does it.

The hair should be damp. You straigten it and get it parallel with a comb and cut it to equal length along the comb. Gage the length for successive cuts against the hair you already cut (about half of the strand should have the new length). When you Do not snip off too much in one go. You can always cut off more.
BTW:
Telly Savalas is perhaps best known for his role as Lt. Theo Kojak. His hair would not exactly be considered as long wink.

I'm not that brave to try it. I'll wait until the quarantine is lifted.

Still living with my barber after 46 years! So, quarantine changes nothing in this regard....

It looks like she knows what she's doing.
