Oh my! He spends waaaaay more time and thought on this than I do!!! lol.
My husband is rather particular about his cuts, but he just complains to me afterwards that the top is a 2.5 not the 3 he wanted or something dumb like that. And then says he's never seeing that person again. But he doesn't have time to go off base, so he's a bit limited on people in the end. I just roll my eyes and remind him that he'll be back in 2 weeks or less.
Less than every 2 weeks. He's in the same boat with Jackie's DH. Except that it bothers him if he goes longer than 2 weeks. He says it's way too long. He's a little weird. He also complained about the last guy that cut it. He said he hardly took anything off, it's the worst cut I've ever had. I could actually tell a difference, oh well, it grows fast. I don't even think you should call it a cut. It's clippers and the side is so short it's almost scalp.
My DH is the same as Veronica's. I buzz it at home every 2-3 months, but I use a 5 on the sides and a 7 on the top so it's not super short buzzed (he hates that "I just got a haircut!" look that it starts to take on if we go any shorter). Usually he'll start complaining that it's too long after about 6 weeks (when it starts to get long enough to curl/look puffy) and it takes us another 2-4 weeks of saying "Oh, I was going to cut your hair..." until we actually get around to it
Erin, I thought the shaggy look was a choice, not a side effect of pickiness warring with busyness/laziness. Men are so funny.
Yeah, that's why we do it--DH is cheap! The ears are the hardest part. I'm not gonna lie, when I first started doing it there was a fairly serious OOPS moment--when I accidentally cut a chunk down to the scalp right behind his ear, when we were on our way to an event! (was trimming around the ears and forgot to pay attention to the other end of the razor...whoops) But I thought fast and colored it in with eyebrow pencil so it wasn't this big obvious white slash, and in the dark room at the event you actually couldn't tell at all (smart thinking, right? ) Of course it looked pretty bad for a week or so, but he forgave me eventually
about every 6 weeks. He has it cut really short so it takes a white to grow. He can't have it over the collar of his shirt for work so one it's that long he has to get it cut or he's sent home (police)
I think he cuts it every couple weeks or so-he shaves it almost bald. He used to pay to have someone cut it, then after we were married, I convinced him to let me do it for him and I did it for him until DD was born. Then it was hard for me to find the time when she was a newborn so he started doing it himself and just kept on.
