How to Shave Head During Quarantine COVID-19 DIY Haircut Tutorial for Men
Quarantine is a weird thing. Most of us have never lived through a coronavirus quarantine before, and none of us have seen it on a mass scale like this. It’s a lot of change to handle, and we’re all constantly finding ourselves surprised by what we can and can’t do. So, if you’re stuck at home and a professional haircut is out of the question, it’s time to learn the skills for a do-it-yourself haircut. If you’re reading this in the future and haircuts are widely available, it never hurts to master a little more self-reliance.
What You Need
If you want to shave your head, you need a few things. First, you need a good trimmer when attempting a DIY clipper haircut. Let’s cut to the chase. We recommend The Lawn Mower 3.0. This advanced trimmer reduces the risk of irritation and cuts when you shave your head. The good thing about The Lawn Mower 3.0 is that it has a ton of safety features. You can trust that it will protect you from cuts and nicks. If you have The Lawn Mower 2.0 and haven't upgraded to its successor, don't worry - it will work just as well for your DIY men's haircut or even your DIY boy's haircut. Kids grow like weeds, and their hair is no exception. You’ll also need a hand mirror. You want to be able to see the back of your head, and that takes at least two mirrors to accomplish. Then, you need a good hair and body wash like Crop Cleanser. If you have access to all of these things, keep reading to learn how to give yourself a haircut.
Here’s where we get real with some trimming tips to help you possibly avoid the barber forever.
- First, get a fresh blade in there. Trimming your head is a much bigger project (at least for most of you) than trimming other parts of your body. A fresh, sharp blade will make life easier.
- While you’re at it, make sure your trimmer is clean. You don’t want to use a ball trimmer on your scalp without washing it. Thankfully, both The Lawn Mower 2.0 and The Lawn Mower 3.0 are waterproof, so they're easy to wash.
- When your equipment is ready, slap on the shortest cutting guard and shorten that hair. As you go over everything with a single pass, you’ll likely notice unevenness in your haircut. Don’t sweat it. We’ll be fixing that in the next step. You don’t have to be too diligent with this trim. You’re just getting hair out of the way so you can see what you’re doing when you go in for the kill.
- This is the point where you’ll have to make those extra passes to get the parts you missed. In fact, if you can get another human being to safely look for missed spots, it’ll go a long way. Otherwise, you’re going to have to trust in your mirror system.
Then Wash up
Now that you have a gleaming dome of beauty, cleanse it with Crop Cleanser hair and body wash. It keeps your hair and skin clean and moisturized, because the last thing you want is a stinky scalp.
