    Don't let the abuse get to you. I've been cutting my own hair for about 10 years. If you're the kind of person who remembers at 11:00 Sunday night that you really needed a haircut before you leave on that business trip Monday morning, its your only logical choice. And as long as your "style" is something simple like "#3 clipper everywhere", its pretty tough to screw it up.

    Trim my own beard with clippers.
    Comb my hair with a razor, so no worries there.

    I'll guess a lot of the guys cut their own hair. I don't know when the last time I had my hair cut by someone else was. Probably not quite 10 years ago. Once you do it enough times, you can do it without a mirror.

    Actually, I don't keep my heads shaved "all the time", so often it grows out enough I use clippers on it, then shave it. Two sets of clippers, small beard trimmer and regular hair trimmers (for head)...both decent Wahl models.

    almost 15 years of using clippers myself. started doing it to save money in college. then as my hair started thinning... i realized no other hair style would work for me so i just kept shaving it. i have no idea how much haircuts even cost anymore.

    You're supposed to cut hair. Mine hasn't been cut since 03.01.08. Not planning to anytime in the foreseeable future.

    With clippers, same as front.


    Serious answer: Use mirrors...I have medicine cabinet with 3 mirrors side by side, ones on outside open to I can easily see back of head on either side.
