    I’m pretty much bald so I just get the clippers out once a fortnight.

    But I have feelings. I feel sorry for those with lovely locks who are now turning semi-feral.

    And - poor hairdressers!

    (and tattooists/beauticians/opticians etc etc etc)

    I cut my own hair for about 10 years before I started going to a local barber, so I’m keeping on top of it.

    The barber is bizarrely getting ready to open again - must have run out of money.

    I cut my own the other week, posted an image of it Online, did a "Search Google for image" of it.

    Google seems to think I'm either some Russian journalist or Vladimir Putin

    Tried another photo and was pleased Google thought I was a Gentleman :)

    Not so pleased with the third one Google thought I was a senior citizen :(

    It can be fun, upload a photo of yourself, do a Google image search and see what Google thinks you are.

    That's me.

    By the time the hairdresser opens up again I will be fit to audition for the role of Jesus in the local play

    Jeremy - think rationally man!

    You’re a runner. All that hair is slowing you down.

    Botox and teeth are both unnecessary weight to carry!

    Not to mention the aerodynamic benefits...:D

    Currently I look like a Yeti, the wife used to be a hairdresser, but as she mentioned, she’s not allowed to work. I normally get my hair cut every 2/3 weeks, mine grows like it is on steroids.

    You don’t have to pay your wife for a haircut!

    Or do you?

    Going to let the Mrs have a go, she thinks it could be fun?

    if it’s a total car crash at least they sell a good range of hats on Amazon.

    Good friend of mine is a barber and he always says just give it a go - the difference between a terrible haircut and a decent on is only 2 days.

    My wife has cut my hair for some years now. I have continued this arrangement during lockdown.

    Yes. She has retired, ended up not enjoying the work, so rightly expects payment.

    I can’t work out if you’re being serious or not.

    Does she give you a menu at mealtimes with the prices on it? :D
