I do. It gets rid of the gray.
You definitely got rid of the gray! I have cut my own hair before. Now I try to leave it to a trained professional.
I only ever take care of the bits around my side-burns, or shaving off the straggly bits of hair at the back of my neck that grow after a while. I really try to avoid getting my hair cut as much as possible! Maybe it's 'cause I'm a guy, but I really do hate going to get it cut. I hate having to explain what I want, when I don't really know, and I hate having to make smalltalk with a stranger who's got their hands all over my head.
I'm a weirdo, but this isn't new information.
Barber all the way- you should see cut my nails.
I feel EXACTLY the same! I'd (almost) rather go to the dentist.
I cut my own. Usually get better results, because I know exactly how I want it to look. Although it's going through a weird phase now because I'm trying to grow it out.
I've been putting it off for a couple of months now and I've now got a bowl on my head like friggen Paul McCartney.
Yes i do,i've been doing it for years,i just cut my hair three weeks ago,i did a pretty good job,too :biggrin1:.
I don't trust a lot of people to cut it. I would let a friend because she knew what I'd like even if I didn't know what I'd want.. but I don't live near her anymore so I'm cutting my own hair... then I wear put it up until I can convince a friend to fix the ends when I goof..
I'm not big into the small talk the hair dressers come up with either...
Last time I had my hair cut by a pro they started spraying me with some sort of smelly product without my permission and I immediately had to go home and take a shower. Without the smelly product the cut looked horrid.
I don't trust my locks to anyone anymore and arrange them myself as a tokonoma dedicated to my patron deity.
The last time I tried to cut my own hair I was about 8 years old and it was a disaster. I've been going to a professional ever since.
I think it's great that you can do your own... I'm too afraid !
I think that style looks great on you....but it's not for me. I like having hair!
I can't remember ever cutting my own hair.
True enough. :tongue:
Really?! I love having my hair cut. For me it's a pampering treat and I always feel great after having my hair done.
Is this you?
The best part is when they take you back to those high pressure sinks and do the shampoo/conditioner. I love having my hair played with, so that is always awesome, especially if the hair dresser is hot. :tongue:
That's why I get my hair shampooed and blown out every week. The guy who does my hair is as cute as a button and he wears tight pants and rubs up against me while he is shampooing and blowing me (I mean my hair).
I love it when they apply the conditioner and massage my scalp. So relaxing. Unless it's someone with 'wet lettuce' fingers and they just end up tickling my scalp. I like a firm fingered massage.
No, I'm far too lazy. Plus, the girl who cuts it is quite hot.
I went to Greek Andy's, a barber's shack down a side-street in a rough part of town for a buzz-cut every two weeks for about 15 years. At first I was under the impression my gay friends were going there regularly too, but it turned out they'd tried it once and never been back. The clientelle were labourers, taxi-drivers, black dudes getting lines and patterns cut into their hair (it was the 80s/90s) and me, the token gay. The blokey small-talk about sports and cars and women didn't bother me once I'd adjusted, (lol, you should have heard them fantasising about Martina Navratilova!) but those line-jobs could take ages and sometimes it would be over two hours waiting time. I eventually realised I could buy a set of clippers for the price of a hair cut and save myself a lot of time. I do kind of miss my time with the guys though.
Sadly I don't get haircuts all that often. I'm not even sure when my last haircut was. :tongue: But the scalp massage once a week would be nice!
Firm fingered massage eh? Excuse me while I take that out of context. :drool:
You folks are making me feel positively antisocial! Ftr the men in my life will not let me cut their hair, not even my kids. It's not one of my talents.
And they all have different professionals they prefer. It is definitely a good thing in their books to be lathered and anointed and all the trimmings. And others in my family have become professionals in the hair business.
I'm sure that if I did, I'd look like an accident victim. I have a lovely lady barber right down the street.
