When I was eighteen in military college, I got a “high and tight.” I don’t recommend that hairstyle for work unless you want to be mistaken for military police: it’s a very severe cut.
However, It’s been two months since my last confession, I mean haircut. It’s long. It’s too long. And I’m past my 80’s hairstyle phase. So it needs to be shorn.
I searched the house and found a decent trimmer with clipper attachments.
I then looked up how to do a buzz cut and learned a few interesting things, #TIL:
• The number of the clipper attachment is measured in 1/8” increments: a 3 size clipper will leave 3/8” of hair.
• The cut my wife is going to attempt is actually called a “butch cut”. It’s a 3 on the top and a 1 on the sides. If it turns into a shambles, we’ll just do a “Burr cut,” which is a 1 all over.
• An Induction cut is without clippers. It’s also referred to, not surprisingly, as a zero cut.
