    To be fair there have been times, especially in the early days, where it went a bit wrong, but practice makes perfect (almost - always a learning experience).

    Since doing my own hair I also spent quite a while working on the doors, where there's always plenty of 'bantz' and enormous exposure to strangers whose inhibitions have been seriously lowered. They never seem to be afraid to start making relatively personal comments / asking personal questions - the kind of talk that tends not to happen in normal jobs/settings with people you've just met. If I was sporting a dodgy barnet/DIY-look, I believe I could've expected some to let slip a comment about it.

    Yeah, no injuries lol. I think it's only remotely possible to cut your own hair with an adjustable 3 way mirror in excellent lighting, preferably with an extra hand held mirror. You've basically got a 360 degree view available. I'm fortunate enough that I have a large bathroom that happens to be well suited to it. If I had to move somewhere with just a modern-style flat bathroom mirror taking up the main wall, I'd be in trouble.

    Well £7.50 for hair and beard trim. But I always give £10.00

    I know the guy from school so would prefer to give money to him than some stranger.

    Paid £12.50 yesterday. Showed the guy a picture of what I wanted. Came out with the most generic unstyled haircut ever. He didn't even attempt to make it look like the picture, even when he put the wax in at the end!

    I might start going to a hairdresser instead because it's getting on my nerves. Yes I'm vain.

    Call him Mr.Raider call him Mr.Wrong
    Call him Mr.Vain
    Call him Mr.Raider call him Mr.wrong
    Call him Mr.vain
    He'd say: I know what I want
    And I want it now
    I want you cause I'm Mr.Vain
    I know what I want and I want it now
    I want you cause I'm Mr.Vain
    Call me Mr.Raider call me Mr.Wrong
    Call me insance call me Mr.Vain
    Call me what ya like
    As long as you call me time and again
    Fell the prensence of the aura
    Of the man none to compare
    Loveless dying
    For a just to touch a hand
    Or a moment to share
    Can't deny the urge thet makes them
    Want to lose themselves to the debonair one
    Hold me back the simple fact is
    That I'm all that and I'm always near
    One sexy can't perplex me now
    You know who'raw
    As if you didn't know before
    I know what I want and I want it now
    I want you then I want a little more
    Call him Mr.Raider call him Mr.Wrong
    Call him Mr.Vain
    Call him Mr.Raider call him Mr.wrong
    Call him Mr.vain
    He'd say: I know what I want
    And I want it now
    I want you cause I'm Mr.Vain
    I know what I want and I want it now
    I want you cause I'm Mr.Vain
    Girls are all over the world
    They hope and pray and die for men
    Like me cause I'm the one
    Begotten son that breaks the mold
    Get a look at male epitome
    Style has never seen
    That makes you want to grab and hold
    And squeeze real tight
    Whose gonna be the one to save
    You from yourself
    When you want to take a bite
    Please oh baby please
    You beg you want to stay
    You got to get some caught
    Up in the charm that I laid on thick
    And now there's nowhere
    To run on the hook of my line
    Yeah I keep many females
    Longing for a chance to win my heart
    Whit sex and plenty

    Been shaving my head for about 10 years now, love it. If only I could get laser eye surgery I'd be wind and rain proof.

    Prior to that I think it was about £7.. was a while ago though and I had a bloody awful parting in the middle so I guess you could say i paid for what I got.
