Getting a Haircut during this Crisis, Hmmm?

Chan Eil Whiskers

Fumbling about.
When I look at the before and after photos of the guy in post #147 (above) I want my hair to look kinda sort in the middle between these two looks. I don't much like the post haircut look where it looks like I just went to the barber and "got my ears lowered." The before photo looks a bit shaggy, and in need of a little work, but it's more what I want, or would be trimmed up a bit.

In other news: Today I did a little trimming. Mostly around my ears, but also a bit on the sides and back. Almost entirely with scissors and blending shears. Used the clippers a tiny amount at the bottom of the back. Cut the front just a tiny amount.

I'm not sure it's perfect but it's more to my liking - a little neater looking - and I didn't mess anything up.

Since my last effort I purchased a larger pair of cutting scissors which I like much better. The new ones are Japanese steel albeit made in China. Not expensive but easier for me to use. The first pair I bought are fine but kinda small for a man's hand.


It's fun learning to cut my own hair. Unlike any barber or stylist I only need to acquire expertise on one head of hair. Also I care more about the results than most of them. As a bonus I give myself extra large tips even when I do a lousy job of it.

Happy haircuts,
