    I went to Supercuts in San Rafael, California in September of 1979. This gal cut my hair and we had a really nice conversation about subjects we were both interested in. I called back that night, got her on the phone and asked her out. She said "I have a boyfriend" (he was away at college and we all know that doesn't last). So I told her "I just want to be friends". We got together and the rest is history. Married in 1983 and still married to this day.

    Only twice in the last 41+ years has someone else cut my hair. In both instances, we'd gotten into a disagreement which led to my loss of hair cut privileges. In both cases I set out to "teach" her that anyone could cut my hair and both times, I got really bad haircuts. I hate it when she is always right. :l

    Wife cuts mine with a one guard. It cost me $25 for the shaver about ten years ago and she has cut it since.

    I have more hair on my head than most guys ever did at any age. I cant grow a decent beard.
    I dont care who cuts it.. But being cheap I prefer my wife cut it,.. bad cut,.. Ill wear a hat:p
    We did have a neighbor girl, friend of our daughters. Certainly the most and best entertainment for a cuts. But moved too far away .
    I dont have a problem doing my own summer buzz cuts,.. but my wife doesnt like that look,..

    48 Years with same girl with one time exception. Was getting it cut when I had 18 at shop my Fad had been going to by same guy who was out one day. Vicky was new hire so she stepped in. Liked the job she did better so switched to her. Few years later owner of shop hit up on her and she went elsewhere, calling me to tell me she moved. So I did too. She has changed location couple times but she always tells me where she is. One exception was had appointment about the time she was having a baby - so after a cut she took pictures and gave them to guy in next chair in case she was out next visit. Baby born so guy in next chair did it. Vicky was back on in a month, and has been cutting my hair for 24 years since. I dread when she decides to retire...

    Use a number 1 on the sides and a number 2 on the top. Been about 20 years since I had someone else cut my hair.

    I got a number 2 buzz cut from dad till I was old enough to realize I have a lumpy azz head and started caring about the way it looked. I tried to get him to go to a number 5 and he refused, so I convinced my sister to start cutting my hair. When I was old enough to get myself to a barber shop I did. I’ve been going to him ever since. He’s in his 80’s, I swear he was like the third guy to learn how to use electric clippers, and his hands shake he has Parkinson’s. But my hairline is already receding and thinning on top and baldness runs in the family. So I’m gonna enjoy having hair while I can.
