    I haven’t had a professional haircut since about 1980. So, my head is fine. DH will need some trimming.

    I've been cutting my own hair for the past 20 years or so, typically using a #2 or #3, depending on how I feel at the moment, and sporting one length for sides and top. I tried a #1 once but thought it made me look like Nancy's friend Sluggo.

    Once I retired and stopped shaving I applied the same rule to beard and hair, cutting everything the same length and waiting until I got to the stage where I appeared to have perpetual bed head.

    Here's examples of both sides of the spectrum.

    Who decided that hair stylist is an essential service? says she who now really really needs a trim? I managed to cut my bangs somewhat but the rest is out of my skill set.

    I hadn't noticed it initially, but having inspected my new do more closely I totally understand about the Sluggo look. For the next week or two until it grows out a bit if I go sit out on the deck I will need to either wear a hat or put sunscreen on the top of my head...
