I cut my dh's hair today. I used to do it just because it was so much easier (and still cheaper) than trying to find time and money to get it done. I bet it has been close to 20 years since I did it.

Clippers worked after all that time. I got done so much quicker, too, since it didn't really matter too much if I screwed anything up. But it actually looks pretty good! I should do it more often.

Good job! I cut my whole family's hair on a regular basis (2 sons, 1 daughter, dh). I buzz the boys and I give my daughter all sorts of cool cuts (ok, just a few different styles). Lately, dh and my oldest son just want to grow out hair, so that's super easy

I did a trim job on DH's neck and sides. I used to cut his hair all the time when we were younger and short on money. It was a lot easier back then because his hair was thick and full and any mistakes could hide. Now every hair has a job to do

This is great! I gave away my clippers years ago and dh has gone to barber shop for years. I may have to go back to reviewing how to cut a man style by hand Dh is getting shaggy!

He cuts his own hair. He trims and colors mine. Of course, I throw a wig on and Iím good, So it doesnít matter if he knows what he is doing or not.

Now, our challenge comes when dog grooming time rolls around.

I did DH's hair tonight with clippers. I've done my bangs. I was due for a cut and my hair is longer now than it's been since I was in my 20's.

I wish I could do the dog, but I don't think I could manage it without different clippers. Her toenails are nuts right now.

You are brave!! I don't think I'd try to cut someone's hair. Yikes!! 🙈

I did trim my bangs-- I watched a YouTube video for some help. They were getting too long and getting on my nerves. Turned out pretty good.

I'm really needing some highlights. The gray is beginning to show. I'm too chicken to try to do it myself! 🐣
