There might be a reason people take classes in this...

NavyGuy: I really need to get my haircut.

Mugs: Yeah! We can try out those clippers we bought at Target.

NavyGuy: Heh?

Mugs: The clippers we bought so I can cut your hair and we can save the money you waste at the barber on base every couple of weeks.

NavyGuy: Do you even know how to cut hair?

Mugs: Sure! I looked at some videos online. It can't be that bad. You want it all one length right?

NavyGuy: No, it has to fade upward. You don't know how to do that.

Mugs: Bah - I can figure it out.

NavyGuy: Too close to my ear! Too close!

Mugs: Sorry!! Just hold still for God's sake. I can't cut straight with you pulling away and twitching all the time.

NavyGuy: Well, you can't move the scissors like that. You're going to gouge my head.

Mugs: Just, grrr, you have no faith in me. Relax.

NavyGuy: Now you have to make the bottom part shorter.

Mugs: I know! Stop pestering and let me work.

NavyGuy: There's a bump of hair! You left a bump of hair right here (pointing), and here (pointing).

Mugs: [growl]. I will FIX it!

Mugs: Uh.... is there supposed to be a line?


In my defense, when NavyGuy rushed to the barber in downtown Anacortes (after he got a look at the back of his head - the part with the divot seemed to put him over the edge), the stylist said that for a first time haircutter, I'd done "pretty good." And, I'll have you know, that had he taken my suggestion and kept a style that was all one length, this would have ended with much less screaming.

Oh my God, laugh out loud....Mugs....what did you do to Navy Guy? Were you being all Last of the Mohicans and reverse scalping him???? That last picture is priceless. Hi-larious.

At least you talked NavyGuy into going back to the professionals. I'm still trying not to scalp Farmer with the clippers on a regular basis.

How long will that take to grow out???

Hahahahahaha, oh nice job Mugs.

Luckily for me, Spouse likes what I TELL him he likes, so he gets it short, and all one length. We really have a wonderful partnership.

Good luck with those scissors in the future...if NavyGuy EVER lets you use them again! (Do you think Target would accept their return with little red tufts of hair attached?)

LOL!!! The first time I cut my husband's hair (marine corps style) it was a disaster. It took 2 hours to get it right and now 2 short years later I can cut it to his satisfaction. :)

Eh, he's looked worse. ;)

Fading is really hard. With his hair that short it will grow out really fast so you can try, try again.

My wonderful husband just read this post and said "Tell her to stick to the Cricut machine. She can't hurt anyone that way." For the record, he reacted like he was terrified when he saw the pictures, which means that there will never be an attempt at home hair cutting in this house.

When I cut Dr. Love's hair all one length, took the guard off to trim the "neck hair" (sigh) and accidentally took a chunk out of said perfect hair cut, he thought I did it on purpose! He was so mad at me! (Once I started sobbing, he saw the error of his ways...)

Why, may I ask, would any guy assume we WANT them to look like hairless cats or sheep? There has got to be some kind of elixir that makes their hair stay one length and style permanently...
