My mother has always cut my hair, with only scissors and a comb, which is why i never was in a hair salon. And since late 2014, i cut it myself, because i got a electric hair cutter with an adjustable comb for different lengths, the Norelco 7100 Hair Clipper by Philips. It’s convenient and i have never known anything else. And when i look at the hair salon prices, it is totally worth investing in a electric hair cutter, at least for men with short hair. The only thing that makes trouble is the cleaning. All the hair on the floor requires a vacuum cleaner, and a bit of manual work around the bathtub drain.
