My mum cut my hair till I was about 18, and I liked it that way. Why pay someone to cut my hair when mum can do it for free! Every-time I go to the hairdressers I still feel the same way I did the VERY first time I visited a hairdresser: like a little kid with no idea what to say.
- Hairdresser: "what would you like"
- Me: ......... "umm... I'd like a haircut please"! (as it wasn't obvious "burger and fries please")
- Hairdresser: "how do you want me to cut it"
- Me: ......... "umm... shorter thanks" (as if it was possible to cut longer)
- Hairdresser: "how short?"
- Me: ......... "well it grows fast so pretty short I guess"
- Hairdresser: "should I use clippers front and back"
- Me: ......... "I don't know, should you?!"
I never know what to say because I can never remember what the hairdresser before has done - I don't speak hairdresser and it's not something I pay much attention to. Well NO MORE I've decided! On this wiki page I've taken photo of my hair after a *reasonably* good-length cut, and I'm going to make sure the next time I get a haircut I'll (a) show the hairdresser this page and these photos on my phone and (b) remember to ask after the cut EXACTLY what they did, so I can write it down here!!!
What the last hairdresser did!
- Clippers size 4 on back and side (I think)... although that was pretty short.
- Cut the sides off.

My current hairdresser is a little lady called Kim. It's a little "hole in the wall" chinese run place called "New Cuts Beauty Salon" which charges just $9 for a man's haircut and do a nice quick job. I like it. :)
