Who uses clippers?

Cut my hair with them last night instead of going to the barbers. Didn't do a bad job but it's not quite short enough on the sides and above the neck..

Do you just use one number and go over the whole head or do you use a lower one around back and side?

I used #5 on top and then #4 around bottom/sides..

    Hardcore :P

    It's the first time I've ever shaved the top of my head so I didn't want to go for something like a #1 straight away.

    Think I might go shorter though.. especially as it's summer.. seems ideal.

    Just number 0 all over is easiest and most effective.

    I can't tell you the joys of having the perfect wife who also used to be a top hairdresser with all top awards. Pity my hair is falling out tho, not much she can do about that LOL.

    My hubbie's used one for ages. Our gym has a hairdresser and they wanted to charge £20 for a 3.2.1 cut. Bought a pair of clippers for the same price and they've lasted about 2 years!!

    Exactly that's why he didn't have it done. He challenged them and the girl said ;well ok we could do it for £15' LMAO!!!! Even I only pay £10 and I get my hair washed too!!

    I use them, but every part of my body except my head!

    A #2 for legs, arse, pits and #1 for arms
