My new trimmer came yesterday. I saw it on TV and I ordered one probably about a month ago. I used to get my hair cut every six weeks, because I don’t like looking scraggly, but with the Covid around, I only had one haircut last year and that was in August. I don’t go any place, so I figure that I can get away with not having my hair look that good. I am not very happy with my new trimmer and I may not be using it again, except I do like the way I can use it on the hair that grows on my earlobes, because it works much better than a scissor or trying to use my nose hair trimmer there.
I did a decent job and my cousin helped me trim the back of my neck, which was very thoughtful of her. I took the guard off so I could trim my sideburns, which had grown very long and then I put the trimmer down to see how it came out. My cousin picked up the trimmer, not realizing that I removed the guard and she cut a patch of my hair that went all the way down to my scalp, so now it looks like I have a hole in my head in that spot that she cut. She apologized, but the damage was done and it is not all that noticeable, but unless I want to cut all of my hair down to the scalp, I will just have to wait for it to grow back. Several strands of long hair are covering up the bald patch, so it is not the worst thing that has ever happened to me. However, I am going to declare a moratorium on doing any more self-hair styling for now.
