Well, the hair is getting is a little out of control. It has been almost nine weeks since I have had a haircut. Have any of you guys bought clippers for your hair? Which one did you buy and would you recommend it? I would like to trim the sides and back but I am too afraid to cut the top.

The Wahl clippers are expensive. I do not want to spend any more than $50.

Wahl is the best choice for sure. I've had mine for 15 years and they work like new.

Do you use the clippers, if you can get a haircut from a barber?

Don't do it m8 Long hair looks great. They're gonna open up hair salons soon, and then you can ask them to touch you up so that you can pull off the long hair look.

WAHL is my choice, they are amazing.
I do my hair all the time, for years.

Zero chance a non professional touches my hair. It'll just be longer.

I've been thinking about it, all the cheaper clippers are sold out though. Barber shops are reopening soon so I'll probably just wait.

I just bought a cheap set online but I hope that have the courage to use it. I will start with the back

On Saturday, I got an illicit haircut from a barber who came to my home. It looks great.

I can't say that I am surprised. I am not sure why, but things like getting haircuts and wearing masks seems to be related to one's political ideology. I went to an ice cream store this past weekend where you usually wait in a long line. The store required that people wear masks while waiting in line. It could have been a coincidence but the only people waiting in line without masks were republicans. I am sure lots of republicans wear masks but the percentage of repubs who wear masks is probably lower than for dems.

I went to an ice cream store this past weekend where you usually wait in a long line. The store required that people wear masks while waiting in line. It could have been a coincidence but the only people waiting in line without masks were registered republicans. I am sure lots of republicans wear masks but the percentage of repubs who wear masks is probably lower than for dems.

1) The barber was wearing a mask. So was I.
2) I love the logic here--let's quarantine and wear masks until we have achieved herd immunity.
3) Weird that you knew the registered political status of people waiting in line for ice cream. That's amazing.
4) Right. All of those New Yorkers and Chicagoans and Californians out at the parks and beaches eliciting angry responses from governors and mayors are Red State America. That right-wing state of Colorado run by Dems, which is opening up, and that fascist Democrat state of Minnesota opening up--must be Red Staters. And all of the blue officials violating their own stay-at-home orders must be inspired by right-wing fascist Red Staters. And in the far left blue state, blue city neighborhood I live in, must be the Red Staters who are out not wearing masks. Yes, in the place that voted 25% for Trump, those crazy right-wingers must constitute the 60% of people out not wearing masks.

Maybe, maybe--now just work with me here--maybe you just live in a bubble of your own head inspired by Twitter. Twitter isn't real life.
