Haircuts! What's your plan? Will you cut your own? 12:37 - Mar 31 with 18069 viewsR_from_afar

OK, so this is a pretty trivial subject at this time of crisis and upheaval, but I am getting to the point where my crowning glory - or to be more accurate, grizzled French crop - is going to need some serious attention. I've never cut my own hair and am nervous as hell.

What are you lot planning to do? I am considering getting some electric clippers but am such a clumsy oaf that I will probably end up slicing the curtains in half, along with my own ear.

We're getting the clippers out here this weekend and going for a scalping.
In these times, that counts as an activity to look forward to.

I'd imagine if I didn't cut my hair for 3 months it'd barely register!

Me missus has "cut" my barnet for a while now.... I just hope the home sheep shearers don't fail.

Cherish and enjoy life.... this ain't no dress rehearsal

I'm about to take the plunge and buy some electric clippers. Needs must. Any outcome which leaves me looking even slightly less weird than the SpecSavers sheepdog will be a massive result.

I'm regretting not having it done before lockdown. I look like Brian Kilcline's hairy grandfather at the moment.

I had mine cut a couple of weeks ago before the lock-down. Thing is, it still grows quickly which is amazing for a 50+ year old.
I guess I'll just look like a hippy when all this ends.

9/10 I’ll do my own, grade 0.5 all over and 1 for the beard, the 1/10 is when I want the beard reshaping so will get an expert to do it.

Been cutting my own haird for about 10 years now = 6 on top, 5 at the top sides then 3 or 4 at the sides. Special guides to go over the ears and finally two at the bottom of the back. All very easy :-)

Second this
I'm on my third set of clippers now and have been doing this for about 20 years now.
But a decent set, with lots of different grades and some will even allow you to adjust the length up and down between the grades too. You can also get graduated grades which will help blend in different lengths.
Just remember, start long and go shorter if necessary.
You can't do it the other way round !

Growing mine all out...it'll go beyond that mid-length shít stage while we're all locked down.

And the beard's going along nicely, if a little more salt than pepper in places.

We're thinking of buying clippers. me and my oldest lad. I cut/trimmed my wifes hair last week and done a pretty good job if i do say so myself. I told her she can't go back to Tony and Guys now at a hundred odd quid a cut.
I can't really grow a beard. Unlike some blokes who look super cool with beards i just look like a homeless man that needs a wash.
Hats and beards just don't suit me unfortunately.

Reminds me of years ago when mine started falling out. I went to the doctors and asked him if he had anything to keep it in. He gave me a cardboard box.

To anyone thinking of trimming their scrotum hair with hairdressing scissors, be careful. Be very careful.

For inspiration, use Google to type in "Home haircuts during lockdown". You won't be disappointed.

My hair aint been cut for Months, it's now heading towards 'Hippy' length just as It was when I was a 'Hippy' back in the early 70's.
I noticed today as I ambled through Wantage that on two different occasions Ladies slowed down in their cars to 'check me out'

Sadly for my mates - I still have a full head of thick fast growing hair with little grey. After many years of keeping it short, one of my daughters mentioned that having such a barnet at my age and not showing it off was crazy. So grow it I did. Still, I'm usually in the electric chair for a monthly tidy up, therefore if anyone's making the sequel to the Life of Brian in the summer....
