    I've cut my own with clippers for 20 years. It's literally impossible to fuck it up.

    Get a large head-sized bowl. Place bowl on head. Take clippers and clip any hair not covered by the bowl. Reduce bowl size as required and repeat until you can't make a worse job of it. Et voila.

    Another vote for the DIY approach.
    Clippers with no guard on for the rough of it then its the badger brush with shaving soap and double edged safety razor to finish the job.

    Downside is that it makes me look like a thug.

    Don't get one of those round hair clipper things that look like a great idea because they work in any direction, they work not that well in any direction. I can't stand wasting time at the barbers so it's a No.5 all over for me, was shorter but my Mrs wasn't keen.

    The other advantage of DIY is you can yourself really stupid haircuts in privacy. All manner of mohicans, beards that even an American would't wear, checkerboard head, that sort of thing.

    #3 in winter, #2 in summer, all over, beard and hair. No comb for the throat area, and cutting in along the cheek, under the bottom lip and the nape of the neck. Nape of the neck takes some practice to get straight, have a go, then get the GF to straighten it.

    I cut my own hair very short with clippers for a couple of years. If it's short enough so it's off the ears then as Reburner says, you can't fuck it up.


    Downside of having stubble for hair, particularly as I'd gone on a diet and lost some weight, was that everyone thought I'd got cancer (but didn't like to ask)

    I'd do it like that again now but the wife doesn't like it

    Ill quite often trim mine up... it grows so quickly and ladies hair cuts cost so much more than mens.. Why is this,?
    I go and have it cut about every 3 months and just go over it myself in between..
