Flippin Clippers

Is a haircut really such a big deal?
It’s just…we get to this point where it is TOTALLY time to either trim or braid or something.
They HATE combing/brushing…anything.
I get it.
I retired the clippers to Kirby.
The first cut was $7.
I gave a nice tip because he spent a long time on their hairs.
They looked GOOOD!
Next time I went back the cut was $14.
No big deal…still looked good.
Last time we went there it was over $20 and that was it.
Time to dust of my clippers.
I have a little one (really nice to maneuver) with a wide variety of guards.
Then there is this big fella…only two guards. REEEEAAALLLY long or REALLLLLY short.
BB does not like haircuts…never has.
MC doesn’t mind…but he is VERY particular.
Then he has to get used to it for a few days.
Today was haircut day. I let them choose trim or cut.
BB wasn’t too bad, but the clippers were acting sort of funny.
The little ones weren’t really cutting, and the big one was either too short or too long.
We trimmed up BB with the too long but he looks good.
Then it’s time for MC.
Sometimes he goes with a mohawk, but that needs to be on a Friday night so he forgets about it by Monday morning…too silly at school.
I’m thinking a fade might do the trick.
I start working on his hair…I bet I switched guards and clippers no less than 10 times!!!
Nothing was working!
I even used a comb and was going to cut with NO guard (brave, aren’t I?).
I went to Sally to get either different guard sizes for the big one or a new blade for the smaller one (NO I didn’t bring the clippers with me…I guessed – wrong).
It took FOREVER and MC and I were both over it.
I had to finish though.
A little here, a little there…free hand to blend it just right on top and smooth it all out.
It might be the best haircut I have ever given him.
I’m worn out!
He’s happy.
We’re good.
