Recent events have got me thinking.
My old banger broke down on the way to the hairdressers last week.
I don't have anything fancy done, just a quick bit of cheap sheep shearing to stop it getting in my eyes and irritating me - which it's doing now as I never got there!
How does everyone go about hair cutting when you're out on the road?
The blokes probably don't have so much of a problem with this one - partners cut with those trimming/shaving devices or they do it themselves? Or a trip to the nearest hairdresser for a short back & sides? If it's long I guess a pony tail does the job, or not...?
I'm very lucky in that I have wash'n'go type hair, sort of curly and does it's own thing (a godsend for van life!)
I remember having a discussion with Minisorella about this subject a few years ago when I advised her to just let her hair go its own way - d'you remember, Jenny? Anyway, don't know if she kept it up or not, but with my hair the only important thing to keeping it looking OK is the actual haircut itself. I know, I know! Pure vanity!
There aren't many good hairdressers around who know how to cut curly hair. At a pinch I could just about cut it myself, but it's quite hard to do and I just know I'd end up looking like a busted mattress! Do you just have to to risk it with any old hairdressers while out on the road?
So, is this a topic that causes problems for any of our full timers and what solutions do you have, if any?
Hmm. Make sure you don't use it anywhere else as this old chestnut illustrates:-
Not much help to me though, don't want to remove my hair, just get it cut
Life: unfinished threads in a never-ending tapestry
Decent electric, Braun or Wahl, plug into invertor only
5W power usage. A quick No. 8 allover.
I'm very lucky in that I have wash'n'go type hair,
Same here, I washed my hair and it went!
After two weeks my head looks like it has a fringe on the back of it, after several weeks it resembles a matted cobweb on an egg.
I use a Whal Professional hair cutter at home and my good lady looks for any bits I've missed. That's me done! The money I have saved on barbers/hairdressers would probably buy me a top of the range Niesmann Bischkopf.
Marie you can buy them kits on Amazon that at least cuts your fringe or bangs as the Americans would say Least you could keep the front tamed
I have seen your hair and lucky you there's a lot of it .... It might be a case of going the hairdressers once in a blue moon. I just stick mine up when I'm in the van ...its easier than dealing with this th.jpg
This is actually a Good Point that MSG is pondering,
Obviously it’s not necessarily an issue for most Guys, (we just use a hand clipper), & Some women I will wager, But a Solution has to be found for most women!.
It will just have to be ‘Budgeted l’ for in a Your personal costings & maybe combine it with your 3 monthly ‘Your Day’ a little look fwd too on your calendar for whatever you want to do, Hair, Nails, Peruse Some shops, a west end show, a Night in a Travel Lodge Or Whatever else you want to spend your £100 on.

I will add, That My ‘Look fwd too’ Day Normally involves Food, & Tends to be Daily as apposed to 3 Monthly!
I have two pairs of hair cutting scissors, one of which is for thinning, and after I have hacked and chopped it a bit, I wear a hat for the next two weeks.
