Do you cut your own hair or do you shave your head?


#1

Since 2005, I have been shaving my head bald with a hair trimmer. I initially did it to save money, but came to the conclusion that my hair was unmanageable, and that I would be better off with a shaved head.

Does anyone else cut his or her own hair? If you’re a guy – Do you go to the extreme and shave your head bald?


#2

My OCD acts up. I look at the hairstylists fingers and say to myself" How many times did she use the washroom today? Did she wash her hands after using the washroom?" I don’t want other people’s hands all over my hair. Yuck!


#3

I also shave my head because I don’t want to deal with it. I don’t go as far as to use a razor, I just do it with regular hair clippers. I don’t need anyone else to cut my hair.

i don’t like people touching me so a hairdresser/barber would creep me out, but this year sometime i am going to shave it all off, it will show up all my scars which i carved into my scalp , but hey, its time to freak my local community out !
take care

I’m like darksith, other people/strangers touching me makes me very uncomfortable. I cut - shave my own hair into a very short crew cut. I used to have long hair for most of my life, so this is a refreshing change. The style these days for men is short hair and being bald anyways.

I used to cut my hair very short in some restrooms of one university library, when I lived in my auto in America. Today I have decided my hair to grow.


#7

This is good to know. I thought I was the only person who shaved his head.


#8

Just shaved it off the other day.

Last time i went to the barber she said “did you lose a bet?” She just couldn’t understand someone doing that intentionally, and why would she being God’s/or nature’s gift to mankind? It was offensive and was derived from her conceited innards, and quite shallow as well.

I don’t like strange people cutting my hair, esp. when i know what kind of hatred bubbles inside of them.


#9

I sort of like my hair a little longer. I just feel better when I can hold onto it. No way will I let a stranger I don’t know come at my head with a sharp implement. I can trim most of it myself and my sis will get the little bits I missed.


#10

I have my own pair of clippers. I just couldn’t see paying money to cut a piece of me off.


#11

I go to a barber shop. I try my best to keep me clean, comb my hair dress nice just to give impression to others that there is noting wrong with me.


#12

I’ve always refused to go to a hairdresser. Maybe it’s how when I was a kid my mother would wash mine + my brother’s hair in the kitchen sink on Saturday night + then he ran free while I had to sit still while my mother rolled up my hair. One time she took me to a hair stylist + I refused to let them wash my hair. So we left. Can’t stand the feeling of people messing with it.

So I resolved to cut my own many years ago. It looks pretty good - better in the front than the back where I can’t see well.


#13

I’ve been shaving my head with clippers for 10 years now. It’s just easier to manage and maintain. I feel like every time I let someone else cut it, they mess it up. I can do a much better job myself, now that I’m used to it!


#14

I go to a hairdresser and cut my hair short every 3rd month. Sometimes it’s really short.

I used to have loooong hair. It reached my butt. But it’s a days work to get it clean, dry and combed. I hated it. So I asked a friend to cut my hair short. And we dyed it moss green. Haha. My mom almost fainted.


#15

Oh. I remembered. I skipped school a lot. The teachers didn’t remember my name. I was “the girl with blue hair”. After green I went blue, purple, black, red and brown.


#16

My sister recently dyed her hair black. I was freaking out a lot because I kept loosing her in a crowd. I couldn’t find her even if she was standing right in front of me. My sis is a redhead. I was having such a fit about this black hair and loosing her all the time, she had it dyed back to her normal colour. Whew…

The long hair story makes me smile. :smile:


#17

close buzz cut once a month. I keep a military hairstyle, sideburns cut off mid-ear and clean shaven


#18

It has been 16 years since I had a hair cut. I too don’t want some stranger behind me with sharp scissors


#19

I used to have hair down to my butt, then I went reallly short, bleached and added colors lots of times. Grew out a bleached Mohawk and shaved steps into my black sides. Then I decided to grow it back out for the last four years, and I hate it. But being a girl, when I had short hair I for some reason had ppl say sir to me and it freaked me out. So I put up with annoying long hair and having to brush it every day for the sake of not attracting attention


#20

I get my hair cut a lot though I’m growing it right now. I also colour it a lot. I like feeling like I have a new hair cut or colour. I’m just waiting to get paid and I will order some more bleach and get it done again. My mum usually does it the colouring and I use a mobile hairdresser for the cut. It’s cheaper to get a wet cut so that’s what I do.
