My whole family (with the exception of the dog) came under my shears today, and although I’d love to be able to write a nice tutorial on how to do it, the truth is I don’t really know. The key to learning is to pay attention when a professional cuts your hair, then to be friends with people who are broke and not too vain. That would be my high school boyfriend. Then pretty much all the guys in my college dorm, but I temporarily quit that unpaid job when one of my friends insisted on reading the paper as I cut his hair (“It just doesn’t feel right otherwise”) and another got really upset (and a new professional haircut) after I messed up and gave him a bob. So there can be some painful moments, like this morning, when I snipped off a piece of my knuckles, but as I pointed out in my award winning instructable* on saving money, this is a great way to economize.
