Best way to perform a hair cut.

I get a lot of irritating hair pulling by the bike seat. I've tried clipping the hairs short but it's very awkward and since some of it is out of sight underneath, I can't always see what I'm doing. I greatly fear snipping the wrong thing and/or getting walked in on. Is there an easy way? I am along with this problem?

Once you figure out the best way to remove these hairs, your problems will be behind you. Or is it the other way around?

I wear bike shorts, so no body hair comes in contact with the saddle. You might try that.

Just ask your barber to do it at your next haircut.
