Shaving my head

Now I'm not talking bald, I will be cutting to Grade 2-3 (6-9mm) but I'm fed up of paying almost £10 for the Barber to give my hair a quick once over with the clippers.

My mum's a Dog Groomer, so I can use all her clippers/blades etc, but I'm unsure of exactly what to do!

I know it's pretty simple, but the main thing I'm worried about is, do I go with or against the hair? My hair is pretty fecked up, meaning the front half of my hair grows backwards, but the back half, grows forwards.

So if any of you save your head, is there anything I should/shouldn't be doing.

Its simple to do it yourself mate, just go against your hair, just take your time and it will be ok, what ever you do, dont leave stray parts like i used to do (look in the picture topic) take yor time and everything will be fine.

I got rid of my hair a couple of months ago and went back to having a grade 1.

First time I had it done at the barbers for £9 but then got a set of clippers from tesco for £7 (bargain!).

As you can imagine the clippers are fairly crap but I just keep going over my hair, against the hair, until its done. Ends up looking fine, the only thing is you will need someone to give you a neck shave once in a while.

Yeah I'll probably go to the Barbers every so often for my neck, but this way I can keep going over it.

So just to check, it's okay if I go against the hair?

I once allowed my mates to shave my head.

I had longish hair at the time. They shaved all the top of my head and the front, so it looked like I was bald with a mullet. They then threw the clippers (not mine, one of my mates) into my pond.

In retrospect, it was funny having to walk into town like that to get a haircut.

Gah, not trying to pose or anything just the best way to show the hair. I don't usually smile in any photos :rolleyes:

Ahh, well I already have a pretty bad receeding hairline, so might aswel start early!

I've done it shorter since that pic and it look's much better. Might go shorter still, I don't know.
