Snip, Snip, Snip Part II

We did something dangerous, this week.

We bought a clipper set. We bought a very fancy clipper set … to cut hair. To cut ‘our‘ hair—not other people’s hair, just in case you were wondering if I were starting a new business. I’m not.

For those of you interested in this kind of thing, it’s a Philips 7000 series (though I wonder what happened to the previous 6999 versions?) It comes with three plastic comb fittings. A set of professional scissors, a separate simple plastic comb, and a cape. Yes, we’re going to become super heroes … or something.

That something probably being bald.

Especially as neither of us have a single clue as to how to cut hair to begin with. But hey, we remedied that by watching three very curious and, quite frankly, probably useless YouTube videos … useless since said videos were of guys cutting their own hair on the shortest settings going. Maybe we could join the Army? Hmm …

Yes, I know. We need to do more research. A lot more research. But since when did not knowing how to do something stop anyone, anyway, from going right ahead and, eh, doing it?

So yes, this weekend, I will officially end up looking like an escapee from an institute or an extra from the movie, 12 Monkeys.

So what’s the difference between a good hair cut and a bad hair cut? Two weeks!

Wish us luck, I think we’re going to need it.

We are persistent, that’s for sure. And after last time, we thought we better get a little more creative and organised. Hence the clippers, but also, who cares? If we make a mess, we have fun, and after all, no one is going to see it. And the last mess grew out really quickly. So it’s definitely time to experiment … again!
