View Full Version : Would you cut your own hair?



happy-and-lost
July 25th, 2007, 11:31 AM
Well, my hair's beginning to look a bit lanky, and in need of a trim and minor restyle. I always used to get this done at the hairdressers, but was never satisfied with the results, as they could never do it quite how I'd imagined I'd like it. So, about a year ago, I took the matter into my own hands and cut it myself. Not only did this save me £24, but I was also able to get exactly the style I was imagining in my head and haven't been to the hairdresser since. This apparently radical move was met with shock by my peers (17 year old girls... what do yo expect?), who told me that no-one should ever... EVER cut their own hair, in spite of the fact that they initially really liked my new do, and thought it had been done at the "trendy" (read: expensive) salon in my town.

So, as I embark on another DIY haircut, I pose the question...

Would you?

I cut my own in the sense that I run a headshaver over it with a 2mm guide. I don't think I would cut my own hair if your talking about scissors and styling.

Not exactly a snip at £24 eh,i`d cut my own at that price too:)

I get mine done at a little place along the road for about £7(£10 with tip) and he does a good job.We do have clippers indoors for my lad though,he prefers just to lob it all off.
I`d like to do the same myself during the summers down here if i could away with it mind you but....the wife dont like it:)
I have a few scars on my noggin so a number 1 makes me look like a thug she reckons.

Can't remember the last time I paid for it. Way toooo expensive!

I use a comb-looking thing with 2 blades in it: on one side, it trims it nicely; on the other, it actually cuts it.

First time I cut my own hair I was **** drunk and entered a bet with a friend of mine.

I won, but still cut my hair... The thing is my hair was long enough that I could sit on it, at the time.

I left 3 large braids of hair and cut the rest short and then rolled my (stupidly overgrown) goatee into a braid as well. Eating soup wasn't easy at the time.

Ah... those were the days, sporting my mad Viking look.

Now I just let it grow until I get tired of having too much hair and then shave it completely. And I won't venture into saying what happened when I last shaved my hair AND was drunk.

Remember the golden rule, if you're male there are certain areas you HAVE to be careful with when shaving.

I know what a rat tail is, but what is a "rasta rat tail?"

I cut my own hair about every 3 weeks with a shaver and a #4 guard. Then my wife does the trimming around my ears and neck line. I paid about $20 for the clippers, so for the price of 1 hair cut, I get a life time of hair cuts.

I don't think I'd try styling long hair, though.

I shave my head-- not to skin but about a quarter to half centimeter or so-- every 2 weeks at the most. Bought the shaver a long time ago for about $25. Feels great everytime and have saved a bundle over the years not going to the barber. I can't stand combing/styling hair at all, this way actually suits me and no time is wasted with gel and silliness like that :D

My dad used to cut my hair (he trained as a barber) and then he taught my mom how to do it so he could get his cut, and he used to cut his Army recruit's hair as well. In the past year I've cut my hair lots of times, every few months I might go somewhere to get it done but for the most part I do as good a job as the salon/barber shop.

I used to cut my own hair fairly often, but a friend of mine became a hair dresser and will not allow me to do that anymore. Something about not being able to see the back of my head...

mips
July 25th, 2007, 04:50 PM
I used to run the clippers through my hair with a #2 & #3.

These days I still use it for trimming sideburns but I have my hair cut by a stylist. I cannot see myself using scissors as I would probably mess things up and never mind the confusion from reverse actions looking in the mirror :)

Is there any causality in between? :) *ducks*

+1 for shaving one's own hair. It is by far the most practical haircut I can think of and at least I never have a bad hair day.

Note that most smilies are bald as well. ;)

I would cut my own hair, but my mum likes to, on the incredibly rare occasion that I decide it needs a trim. I have shoulder length hair - and I only ever cut it when it's becoming absurd (about once a year :P). It could do with a trim right now, but it's not too bad yet. Fortunately for me I have been told I look good when my hair is messy, so it suits me and my financial situation (read: lack of money) perfectly. The most I ever do, as a rule, to my hair, is stand in a shower then rub it vigourously with a towel. If I've just washed it (yes, I do wash my hair, I'm not a complete mess), then I normally have to brush it into sanity, because it has a tendency to become very light and just bounce all over the damn place.

Shoulder length, right?

I haven't cut my hair in about 4 years, and it isn't scratty at the ends, because I don't destroy my hair with chemicals. If you have spit ends, you should cut them off, then make sure you don't let your hair dry out, not using shampoo is the best way to do that. What is the purpose of stripping the hair of its natural protection, especially since most hair products have the same substance that you are taking away!

I am a teenager also, I am also a Vegan, which affects my body, so things will be different for you.

Don't tell anybody, but I haven't washed my hair in 3 years, and also never trim the ends, but everybody compliments my hair (strangers too!), and ask what I do to get it so long and "pretty" (their words).

I do nothing and let nature handle the details, I just brush it.

I stopped cutting it when I was 15, which I believe is your age now, and am now 19.

Ever try a "Flowbee", cuts the hair and sucks it straight into a vacuum cleaner. its easy clean, no mistakes, but then no fancy salon styles either. That didn't really bother me.

Never done it myself, I just ask someone else to do it. I never really am after anything beyond a trim anyway, so it's pretty hard to **** up. Hairdressers are ripoffs, unless you're after something that only they can provide (Like dreads or something).

did you by chance see the history channel show about the tracing back to the first humans?(those most like us?)
the African guy was pretty much like any southern african bushman is today,they think he likely spoke in one of the click languages.
the European guy was with long black hair,and a good scraggly beard going,but with a more pronounced goatee and was not fully grown in on the sides.he had a hunter/gatherer/working to stay alive look about him that was cool.
if mine would grow that way i'd never trim or shave it.alas it doesnt,so it get periodic attention...:popcorn:

Pretty much the same story. I also do trim the sideburns if I think they are too long with my razor and some scissors to even it out.

I forgot to mention I hate being in a place they cut you hair (I forgot the word).

Some men only places or OK, especially the older ones.

The last time I went to the barber was a few years ago, in a modern mixed gender place my mother dragged me to.

It was horrible.

The barber (a women) insisted on talking to me the whole time.

It would would be ok if it was sports related or something like that, no she talked about stuff you read in gossip papers.

Then there were the other women constantly blabbering.

It drove me crazy.

Not to mentioned I had to wait an half an hour before they got started even though I was on time.

And I had to fork over 30 euro for a haircut my brother does in a few minutes.

Never again.

The only thing, I might do - is trim the top layer on the back of my head, as it gets long - and I can't backcomb it effectively. lol

I've cut my own hair a few times, it can be difficult, depending on what you want the result to be, in my case, the few times I did, I wanted to get myself a Mohawk.

when I got to the back of my head, I had to get my brother to help me a little.

I ended up billiard balling my head after I found out my hair turned completely burgundy red the day after a drunk party where a girl soaked my head with peroxide cream....

Wow, they charge a crapload of money to cut your hair in Europe. No wonder so many of you cut your own hair! (Edit: I should point out that my wife once went to a hair salon in Long Island that charged her $40 to do... whatever it is that they did.)

At what I consider a "more expensive" place, I pay $15 plus tip. I've seen barbers around that charge $8 or $10. I don't cut my own hair because I fear what I would do to the hair on the back of my head. If I had the fuzz cut going on like I used to in middle school, I would probably consider it, what with my wallet being empty.

I don't cut anything (I believe it is not right to significantly alter one's natural appearance)

EDIT: Very clever people...

well this IS coming from a borg...

I originally voted "no" but I was wrong because I ended up cutting my own hair.

For at least 15 years I've been cutting my own hair. I usually leave it for 2 or 3 months, then I'll catch a glimpse of the fright-wig in the mirror and that's it - out comes the clippers for a No 2 all over.

Voted yes, but prefer to have it done. Here in Thailand you usually get a head massage too):P

I cut my hair once, badly. Ended up shaving my head.

On the flipside, being bald actually felt quite nice. You feel heat from every lamp around you on a cold day, and hats, pillows, and showers feel 10X more amazing. Not to mention the sensation of rubbing your own head up and down with your hand all the time to feel the stubble.

I've got quite a bit grown back, although it's quite short still.

I have been cutting my own hair for a while now, but being a guy with his own set of clippers, it's not too hard.

I just make it an even length all over the head, 1/2" I think.

So yes, I would cut my own hair, since I actually do.
