As one of those fortunate chappies who at 55 still has a full heid o' thick dark brown hair, it's in a bit of a state at the moment. Beginning to look like one of Jedward. No sure whether to wait for hairdressers to open...whenever that will be, or risk having a go myself at it....or even worse let my sister do it. Any other Bouncers in the same predicament or are we a site full of baldy bastards who don't have the same problem as me ?

I also wear my hair 'fashionably short' but having married a hairdresser I've not visited a barber for several decades.

Unless you've seriously pissed off your sister, I think she'd be a tad more successful than a 'do it yourself' effort, unless you're taking it down to the wood.

I have not had a haircut for 10 weeks, and have now not shaved for 6 weeks. Our lodger is taking a photo every day, which I'm hoping to turn into a kind of timelapse thing, as I grow more and more like the wildman of Abbeyhill. The urge to trim the beard is sometimes unbearable, especially with all the mad clumps under the jawline, and the sort of Victorian whiskers effect at the sides, but so far I'm resisting. The hair on my head has also gone daft too, there's literally nothing I can do now to avoid looking like I've just got up.

Overall, quite fun, but I'll be getting sheared again at the first possible opporchancity.

Blonde, 62, decent head of hair.

I don't think mines grows that quickly. In normal life I'd have it cut 3, maybe 4 times a year. I'd probably time that for Christmas and when I go on holidays.

I was just about to go away when lockdown happened so I got a trim days before.

I reckon I'm good or at least not bad till Septemberish.

Think I will get a 3 all over....and ask my sister to do it, although she does tend to get a bit snippy about these things.
It'll be a load off ma mind I tell ye....

Still need a haircut about every 6 weeks.
Its 7 weeks since I had a haircut and to be honest I was coping until GM mentioned it.........
My sister in law started her time as an apprentice hairdresser, but left after a year.
That was 40 years ago , but I may have to put my faith in her(limited) ability

I usually get a no.1 crop every four weeks or so as I ain't got much left on top. Bought a Remington Quick Cut clipper (other clippers are also available) and had a go myself a couple of weeks ago. Quite impressed with the outcome although the detailing round the ears is a bit problematic. I persevered and got there eventually not too bad. Overall a pretty decent result! Next DIY project a dodgy molar... can't be that difficult surely? 🤪
