Cats do some mighty strange things sometimes.
I have always had long hair so managing short hair is totally foreign to me I've never paid attention to what goes on with others in a salon when I go and many of my haircuts have been done by hairdressers who work from home or those who would come over and cut it.Haha - these new skills eh @ChemGal ? I've been cutting my husband's hair for about 40+ years now - it's very curly - think Italian 'afro' look - now much shorter, grayer, and thinning into a 'monk's cut' on top I cut it the other day - he was overdue! And he used the clippers & scissors to tidy up my neck too!
Last night Chris Cuomo (CNN host) was sporting a fresh haircut - gave a long funny chat about his wife doing it for him - pretty good job tho!
Did Chemguy's first haircut. His main concern was shaving his neck, as the hair he doesn't normally have there was getting long. That part was easy. Then he showed me how to use the clippers with the guard on, I've never used it. He did one quick strip and I thought it looked awful so didn't feel comfortable doing that all over. I tried to cut to match, maybe the clippers would have made it look better, but the amount that came off immediately was too much of a shock to me. I think I did pretty good evening it out with the little paper scissors I used. A little bit thicker of a 'line' and not quite so straight. It looks slightly undo but also looks like someone with the right skills could easily smooth it out.
2nd go around I think we could do better, he was standing/ducking. We need to get a chair (did it in the bathroom for easy cleanup) next time. Having the clear neck also makes the rest of the hair stand out better, so if that's not so long the next time I go for it, there won't be all the long loose hairs obstructing that view. The front looks good, but I barely touched that, he has a receding hairline, so there's just more sitting above that - not really a comb over. I just trimmed the few bits that were obviously too long.
A hair stylist I'm not. It looks better than when it was overgrown though. Hopefully stays to a level where my maintenance can keep it looking something similar to this and when things open up he won't need a whole new hair style, just cleaning up my work.
Chemguy wanted to get his haircut before they were shut down, but figured it was best to avoid. I often go years without a cut anyway.I was lucky to get my last haircut just two days before they shut down all hairdressers in NS- I will still be good for a few weeks.
