I've had one DIY haircut this year, after working in the garden my wife put a chair in the kitchen & said right Mr erimus, get yourself sat there & proceeded to cut my hair & a good job she did too, but with just under one week to go she's cutting my hair no more

Bought a pair of clippers a year ago. One of the best buys ever. I never even went back to the barbers the last time the opened up.
Ditto, paid about 30 quid last March and Mrs fufkin does a decent job so can't see me going back, although I feel a bit guilty on the barber who I used to go to, she's still got to make a living. Maybe I ought to stick a tenner through the letterbox every 4 weeks

I'm another one who's bought clippers. I'm not seeing much difference between my own efforts and the "No 5 all over" I used to get at the barbers. I can't see myself going back again.
A handy hint I learned last time I sheared myself and the rechargeable battery was struggling. Put a Duracell AA in instead * , what a difference it made. Miles more powerful than even the fully charged original battery was.

*Don't leave it in the clippers. Not good to accidently try and charge up.

My son was taking a college course to train to be a barber but due to Covid he is in limbo so he only has folically challenged me to practice on.
He does a decent job so it looks like trips to the barber are a thing of the past for me.

I currently have what resembles a fluffy jumper that's been through a shredder on my head. Monday morning is when I'm booked in for a cut. It was due robe cut the day lockdown was announced for and it was in desperate need of a cut then. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

You've missed out on one the most exciting things to do in lockdown if you haven't cut your own hair ๐Ÿ˜

During the first lockdown I snipped away in the bathroom mirror with pretty terrible results. Now that it's started to get long and straggly of its own accord, I have decided to leave it and just let it grow long. I work in the arts anyway so God knows why I've gone all these years with sensible haircuts, I'm going to be one of those tragic guys with ponytails.

Actually, no. Couldn't bear the ponytail thing but I am avoiding barbers for the foreseeable and we'll see what happens. Either way, it'll be better than the number one I once had. I looked like a skinhead Ronnie Kray.

I shall be going to the barbers after the initial rush dies down and shall be giving them a ยฃ20 note for fixing my rudimentary efforts to maintain my style.
