Foray into Self-Haircutting

09 Nov 2007


Last night, I decided to purchase something with which I could cut my own hair. Unfortunately, Target doesn't carry the Flowbee, which would've been rockin' cool. Instead, I bought some regular electric hair clippers. I'm going to attempt to cut my own hair from now on. Every time I go to Great Clips, all they do is sort of lawn-mow my head, anyway. If I had any kind of hair style, I suppose I wouldn't mind dropping $20 to have someone cut and style me. But I just don't see the value in it. Don't get me wrong ... I'm not disparaging hair stylists. Layering, coloring, perming, etc. All of those things require training and merit the going rate + a decent tip. But, I'm a guy. I'm good at mowing the lawn. This shit isn't rocket science. Would've been really cool to have a Flowbee, though.

I have been cutting my hair for years. I have a buzz cut with super short above the ear similar to a military style but a bit longer. My first attempts were a disaster, now I am not satisfied with a pro cut. Short hair only looks good if the hair is cut regularly and that gets expensive and I can't find a detail oriented barber that charges a good price and can compare to my two mirrors,
an electric razor, and 10 minutes. .
