    Plug it in and charge it.
    Then cut your hair off.

    I was offered a free haircut a few weeks ago and said no ;_;

    Am now considering paying my flatmate to give it a go. Starting to understand why post apocalyptic scifi hair is the way it is.

    Im offering a special Covid 19 barber service. 2 metres social distancing guaranteed.

    If you don't mind your hair short it's not that hard.. just plan out how to 'fade' it, take your time and get someone else to do the back if you can.. that's the place you can really **** it up, trying to get a straight line at the very end of your hair

    I plan on having longer hair during covid...
    Not exactly many social gatherings to be worrying about having the latest style..

    Perfect time for trying out a beard or tash

    Yep I was wanting to grow my hair out one last time while it's still all there but keeping it short just made it so much easier to look respectable for work. This is the best window we'll ever get!

    I bought a hair scissors set..... we shall see!

    Not if you'll need to wear a face mask.

    I'm tempted to let the Mrs have a go at my hair but it's not a promising prospect.

    Tried that and didn't shave for 10 days. It was pure grey. I shaved this evening

    I think this thread should include pics of DIY cuts gone wrong ;)


  • Administrators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 62,311 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Beasty


    Some tips

    Looking forward to seeing how everyone gets on...


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,070 ✭✭✭ Xertz


    Ordered a trimmer - should be 'interesting' lol

    I think I'm just going to go for a fairly simple shaved head for the next while lol


  • Administrators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 62,311 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Beasty


    I'm at a stage that even if I don't cut it I'll probably have less by the end of this than I have now:(


    :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,807 ✭✭✭ ShatterAlan


    Fcuk it...go full Kojak.


    We've all wanted to do it but never did because we'd have to go to work and face the slags. You may not have another opportunity to look like a Shaolin monk. Get the buzzer and shear it off to a mark 1 then have the missus lather up your head and take the old Gillette Mach 3 to it. So you're as bald as an egg just in time for Easter. By the time you have to go back to work it'll have grown back to a nice crew cut.

    What one did you order? There's so many to choose from. I'm okay for couple of weeks but would like to be prepared!

    A Whal cordless one. Was surprisingly not that expensive.

    My wife's aged aunt mentioned that she's getting her hair done tomorrow in a place in Limerick. And weren't they great to be opening to help the elderly.

    They are still closed, right?

    Ya pretty sure it's July 20 something for Barbers/Hairdressers.

    The mind boggles


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,802 ✭✭✭✭ suicide_circus


    they are still meant to be closed yes but there is plenty of black market stuff going on as always happens at times of national strife and prohibition.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 4,552 ✭✭✭ bigpink


    Lots of places open for regulars or house calls


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,911 ✭✭✭ stargazer 68


    Girl on our road has started doing the nails again! She was certainly busy over the last few days!


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 10,805 Mod ✭✭✭✭ MarkR


    Jesus tap dancing Christ. The world won't end with a roar or an explosion. It'll end with blue tinted hair and gel nails.

    In general people dont seem to give a f*ck about restrictions. Without even leaving my house I seen 4 different neighbours have visitors come and go recently. One neighbour lifted a fence panel and had her next door neighbour into the garden for drinks and a natter. Thought no one would notice.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,020 ✭✭✭ kowloonkev


    Hope these hairdressers are prepared to face the legal consequences should cases of this be traced back to their premises.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,524 ✭✭✭ Gynoid


    This sounds like a very naughty thread.

    What level of precaution are they taking? Face masks for all for example? I mean that's likely what they'll be doing when their restrictions are lifted.
