Re: Cruisers with well cut hair

Philips trimmer goes all the way. Nothing fancy but practical and neat.

Re: Cruisers with well cut hair

In my family age seems to solve the problem of haircuts for the males. I'm still having mine cut, but only in selected areas.

Re: Cruisers with well cut hair

Last time I went to a Barber - haircuts were $1.75. My wife cuts it and she also trims the dog but for some reason she won't let me cut her's anymore (once was enough).

Re: Cruisers with well cut hair

I picked up a home barber set back in 1999 or 2000, and have been cutting my own hair ever since. Best $40 I ever spent. Since I'm losing my hair anyway I just attach the 3/8th inch rake and cut until nothing more comes off. On board I'll plug it into the inverter and it takes about 10 minutes so the draw isn't much.

Re: Cruisers with well cut hair

I hate it when I sound like my mother..
…..but I do believe first impressions are important…..

Since that is usually with customs and immigration, maintaining a smart professional appearance goes a long way to solving problems and getting information and acceptance when travelling.

Also, it is nice to be pampered by a good hairdresser which is easy to find in most ports

Re: Cruisers with well cut hair

Thank you to all who posted. I agree with Pelagic's mother, and as such, there is no magic bullet, especially for a girl with hair that needs to be cut well to look decent. So it's still either
  • Learn yourself and teach your partner how to cut each other's hair
or
  • Find a hairdresser when needed and risk a bad haircut
Sometimes the second option works great. I can say this about Turkey: I found a hairdresser, who cuts my hair for about 6 USD. She is a fifth generation hairdresser, learnt from the early age, and she does absolute magic - better than any salons I tried in North America. And that, considering that my hair (VERY fine) is very different from regular Turkish. [You should've seen me after I attempted a haircut in China... ]

And it's even better if you're a guy in Turkey: as far as we understand, there's a tradition for guys to go to a barber, who would wash, cut, and style your hair, trim your beard/shave you, remove nose hairs, and trim your eyebrows. And all of it for a ridiculously small amount of money (unless you go to a fancy place). And barbers in Turkey are open late, very late. We frequently see places still open at 10 or 11 pm. And with lots of customers.

Re: Cruisers with well cut hair

I think when we cast off I may consider this as a little income maker.

I started cutting hair when my daughter was a tiny little girl with so little hair that paying for a few wisps to be snipped seemed crazy. As her hair grew in my abilities improved. Once I talked her into a salon, but she hated it and so I am still doing it.

Last weekend I cut hair for the whole family, 4 guys and 2 girls.

My scissors were smoking ; -)

I will need shingles for haircuts and canvas work!
