Desperate Times; Desperate Measures

My husband, Studly Doright, brought me a gift today.

He’s asked me to trim his hair. Me, the world’s greatest klutz. The woman who regularly makes a mess of her own bangs.

How about this?

I’m trying to convince him that he looks quite handsome with his current hairstyle. Dashing. Young. Hip. I’m not having much luck.

Keep us both in your thoughts. And, if I botch the haircut does anyone know a good divorce attorney?

Peace, people

  2. I have been doing everyone’s hair in this house for years. The guys are insanely easy, or used to be. Hubby gets buzzed to a 3 considering there is almost nothing on top and MC used to do a 4 on the sides and back and a 6 on top because he didn’t want to mess with it. The last year or so, he needed a “style” so now I have to actually cut the top. I even gave him a mohawk once. That one didn’t last at all! BG on the other hand is the hard one. She rarely ever wants even a trim, but it has be to be EXACTLY right. I miss the days where she didn’t talk back and just let me do what I wanted. I’m grateful that she no longer wants something more difficult like an hombre highlight thingy that I manged to pull off decently if you could ignore the weird, bright thumbprint I managed to drop into the middle of a darker area on the side.

    Using the trimmer is really not too hard to mess up. Just don’t forget to put on one of the guards! Unless he is going for bald.

    1. That’s exactly what I did—except Studly just barely had any hair on top of his head to start with. Now, there’s none on top. He didn’t want to strangle me afterwards though, so I guess that bodes well.


      1. Studly has the silkiest hair. It’s like corn silk. I’m sure the birds will think they’ve hit the jackpot when they get some for their nests.


  3. Good luck with that! We have one from a handful of years ago when my wife was giving me buzz cuts on it. I’ve thought about that recently, but am not ready to go back to that look. So long, shaggy hair will suffice for now. – Marty

  4. I trimmed my partner’s hair a few weeks back. Very minimally, but still, I wasn’t sure 43 years together was enough to let us recover from this if it went wrong. It didn’t go badly, and she can’t see the patch at the back that I screwed up.

    On the other hand, she’s been clipping the dogs and it’s good thing dogs don’t understand mirrors. I’m coming to this late, so I won’t wish you luck, but I would’ve.
