jus brushed sides a second ago........... really hurts. If that was a medium would'nt hurt at all. So how do you boil a hard brush? (plus a hard brush leaves stuff behind i.e. don't wanna call it dandruff, jus "stuff" fallin out from the new brush.)

How come barbers don't use razors and only use the trimmers, while i gotta use both too try to make it crisp? plus its hard to line yourself up...

1. barbers got experience it takes time to get real good at lining yourself up
2 Usually if you cant get close enough u might need to adjust your trimmer.
3. i dont even use/own trimmers i just use a razor

I get a professional cut every once in a while but cuttin my own hair gives me a sense of accomplishment especially when I get compliments I take pride in cutting my own hair.But its not for everybody...lol

Does cuttin WTG for a #2 really make your hair uneven, or is that only for a numba one.

With any gaurd cuttin wtg you run that risk of it not being even all I can say is to keep going over you hair until it doesnt cut anymore.

yeah fam..it takes me about an hour...because i do everything taper the sides back and front of my head...i am a perfectionist also when it comes to edging and using the razor...with the razor to not get bumps..apply water first before you put on the shaving creame...also by some shavcing creame that has bump protection...and also some after shave to apply after your done...the easiest way to line yourself up is to put the trimmers a little bit before the hair line and go up to the hair line...then brush done...keep doing it until you like how it looks...when you get to the sides..start from the side burns and turn the clippers to the side and make a half circle and then clean it up...where the point is just barely touch it at the tip and then as i said before from the side burns go in a half circle motin then to meet at the point...that usually works for me....then to get the round part by the ear..hold your ear down and then start from the round part thats at the back and come foward to where the round part is in the front...make sure that the clippers are turned sideways...so as to just only use a portion of the edgers...
