    Wife and I got hair cuts yesterday before the beauty salon she uses closed down. Us and one other customer with 4 stylists all separated. Now I am good for 5 weeks and her for 3 or more.

    My gray mop was about 4" long and bugging the crap out of me. I grabbed my clippers, headed out to the porch, and had the Bear shear me like a sheep.

    Fortunately, my hair stylist lives with me (in a bathroom drawer).

    Yep, and with the nail salons shuttered my wife has advised me: 'OK, I won't look at your hair if you don't look at my nails'.
    Luxury problems.

    At 70, I have a full head of hair, but a number of my buddies are bald and one completely shaves what little hair he's got left. Over the years, I've teased them about being to shampoo with a wash cloth. Damn. A haircut made my To Do list the day before the barbershops and salons closed here.

    I wonder how I would look in a pony tail? Na. Better find a razor.

    These pictures were online. The kid asked his brother to give him an "Old Man's" haircut.

    Ive been saying for weeks now a mobile barber could make a killing right now. I would gladly pay 20+ for a haircut right now, they just come sanitized and wear a mask.

    I was due for a haircut right when they shut everything down so im going on close to a month without haircut, needless to say its not looking good lol.

    Mag went into the bathroom muttering the other day and came out butchered. I did what I could to not make it worse. She has always done my hair, so I look just as great as ever (gag). Only good thing for her is that she stopped highlighting her hair a couple years ago when it finally started to turn gray (she was a late bloomer), and the natural color blend looks great on her.

    UPDATE to post #1: It's been over a month since GA reopened including the barbershop I go to. This morning I finally caved in and got a haircut, even though only places I go these days are Kroger and the liquor store … and then I wear a mask! I tried trimming my own hair, but after nearly 3 months couldn't stand looking at myself in the mirror any longer! Yeah, it was really that bad and was all I could do to go on my daily walks or even check the mail. If it got any worse, I might have stayed in if the place caught on fire!

    I made sure I was the first customer of the day, though that probably didn't do a thing toward enhancing my safety. Nonetheless, it was comforting seeing signs on the door and inside about taking customer's temperature and that everyone, including employees must wear a mask. But when I asked the owner and barber if he would be wearing one, he said, "Do you want me to?" Holy crap, but he reluctantly put one on. Now I have to wait a couple weeks to see if I'll live; but if I die, at least I'll look better! Meanwhile, today's haircut is probably the best haircut I've ever gotten, but it was such an easy act to follow. I don't think I've ever taken a longer or soapier shower than the one I took after getting home.

    To celebrate, I ordered a hair clipper for over 2X the usual price that should arrive next Thursday. Maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to maintain the cut, while it would have been way too scary to try before today! It's too bad I don't have anywhere to go, but I feel a whole lot better. :)

    Here in Ontario Canada we've been told it will likely be late summer before hair salons re-open so nothing but bad hair days in the foreseeable future :(
