    Who on here actually has the balls to cut their own hair?

    I have a few guy friends who always do...

    I got frustrated with mine today and tried it. The second I started I screwed it up BIG TIME.

    I went to clip it thinking I had a 3 setting. It was on 1.

    I now have a skin head buzz. Grrrrr.

    Not since I was in high school - I had spent my haircut money on LSD so I had to not only cut my own hair, but also do it under the influence.

    Since then I have occasionally done some minor manscaping but only while stone cold sober

    I have never tried to cut my hair. I know that it would be a severe disaster. I will occasionally trim my own hairline. however I have had incidents in the past that didn't go well with that.

    Yes I do cut my own hair. It stemmed out of financial necessity about a year or so ago. One of my roommates would stand in a dry shower with me and take a number 6 clipper to my head and just shave it all over. Now I do it myself whenever I need a trim and have my roommate take care of the length in the back.

    I like my head buzzed. It's low maintenance and looks good on me, so yes, I cut my own hair.

    I cut what hair there is left !!! LOL !!! since its only half the average persons, it seems a shame to pay the same to get it cut as a full haired man.

    Cut your own hair?

    Yes, for over 45 years. Started when I was around 13, when I got fed up with barbers who wouldn't listen to me. I'd tell them what I wanted, and they'd proceed to do what THEY wanted, with MY hair, and MY money. They haven't gotten any of my money since.

    I've used many methods & tools, making some mistakes in the beginning, but getting better over time, entirely self-taught. Since the early 90s I've used a vacuum Flowbee, along with electric clippers, which works well with my straight hair.

    I've also cut my partner's hair for 3 years now, and he no longer goes to a barber, as I did for my late partner before him. We save hundreds of dollars a year on haircuts. If you have a hair type & style that's easy to cut at home, I recommend it.

    I shave my head with electric clippers. Surprisingly, men's haircuts are getting expensive. The last time I paid for a haircut was over 10 years ago. I think it was $12 + tip for a high n' tight at a barbershop.

    Plus, my hair grows fast and I like to keep it short. Can't afford to be paying for frequent haircuts. icon_confused.gif

    I tried it once with horrid results( had the white line in the back of my head, looked like you could insert quarters in it like a piggy bank), but I am not a fan of proffesional haircuts either since most stylists struggle with my thick hair icon_sad.gif

    TheGuyNextDoor said...How do you even get to the back of your head?

    I stand with my back to a wall mirror, and look into a smaller mirror I hold in my hand in front of me.

    I cut my own hair for about 6years and was actually quite good at it. It took a long time and involved postioning mirrors strategically. I had to constantly remind myself that everything in the mirror is BACKWARDS.icon_lol.gif

    I shave my neck and trim my upper sideburns and do a good job...but I've screwed up my neckline a time or two, but not anymore.

    I'd never cut my hair however..... if it bothered me that much, I'd get
    an appt. made and get it cut.

    Been buzzin' it myself since I was about 16 y/o. I like to keep it short, so it's pretty easy for me to do.

    I stopped getting my hair cut by someone in 2002, but I grew it out without touching it for about 2 years after that...Ever since I've been cutting it myself. Right now that's it's all buzzed off it's easy, but for a few years did elaborate things with it.

    I cut my own... I used to be real picky, then after going through the fire academy where we had to shave it each weekend I got less worried. if I cut it and totally mess up, I'll just chop it all off. ha!
    but I think I do a pretty good job with my clippers and shears. LOL

    I find skinhead cuts kind of sexy. I can cut my own hair until I get to the neckline. Since my hair cut is pretty simple, I now just go to the local barber shop instead of a salon.
