Gentlemen, we know that it feels horrible not being able to drop in with your barber and get a fresh new haircut during these hard times. Instead of looking at all of this from the negative side of things, we have to think positive and find ways to overcome the following weeks and months and find new ways to still look amazing.
No barber, No problem
Gents don’t worry about having your hair grow too long, this is actually a good time to grow out your hair. If you feel uncomfortable having those long, luscious locks of hair you can always take the extra step and become your own barber and give yourself a haircut.
Famed Men’s advice expert Aaron Marino (IAmAlphaM) has taken on the task of giving a step-by-step guide on how to personally cut your own hair. In order to cut your hair you will first have to wet your hair then you will dry it off with a towel. Then comb the sides and look where you normally part your hair. Then with your hair clippers you will start with the number four attachment and start at the temple, and you will then go up and fade out. You’re going to repeat the process on the other side, then you do the backside which you will need a mirror in order to get the job done.
After you will switch out the attachment for the number three attachment and then the number two, the same process as previously. Then you will move on to the number one attachment where you will move the blade as far out. After you will clean around the ear and neck area, and you will then use scissors to cut off sections of hair. If you followed the steps you will have a fresh new haircut. If you don’t trust yourself with giving yourself a haircut there are plenty of ways to style long hair, so it doesn’t become bothersome. Just one advice is after your hair gets to a certain size, experiment with giving yourself a small trim to get rid of any dead hair ends and allow your hair to continue to grow.
