Almost cut my hair
With apologies to David Crosby, I actually did cut my hair. No, not “got a haircut” but actually cut my own hair.
In fact, I’ve been doing it for years and I don’t understand why most guys don’t do it.
About 10 years ago I just got tired of running to the barber. 40 minutes of driving, plus 10 minutes of waiting, plus 20 minutes of haircutting. The price wasn’t bad — about $20 as I recall — but the whole trip was just an annoying waste of time.
Now I have a history of some pretty lousy hair, so I figured with a barbershop type razor and the right setting, I could just cut it all one length and be done in 5 minutes.
Surprisingly, that’s exactly how it’s turned out. In fact, I was at the Rite Aid the other day, and replaced my razor with a Conair model for $10 ($8 after my Rite Aid frequent shopper discount!). Snapped on the #2 trimmer and cut my hair like I was cutting the lawn. All one length, and done right over the sink.
Then I just trim around the ears and I’m done. Money saved directly into my pocket.
Even better, a time savings of at least an hour!
