My girlfriend Rachel cut my hair yesterday.
I was terrified.
But she was very excited.
I used this service called You Probably Need a Haircut to help make it go well.
For $30, they paired us up with a barber on a video call.
He showed us what to do.
How My Girlfriend Said I Looked:
Versus How I Actually Looked:
Tools We Used
- Kitchen scissors
- Beard trimmer
- Hair clips
That’s it. That’s all we had. But the stylist helped make it work!
Cutting My Hair
Here’s how it went.
First, I was apprehensive. And scared.
But our stylist was upbeat! And positive!
He gave us confidence to proceed.
JaBarie even made us a diagram.
It showed how to separate the hair on my head for easier cutting.
We buzzed the sides with my beard trimmer.
Then we had to wet my hair to cut some of the longer sides.
Our stylist was giving us advice the whole time.
Things were going well!
After cutting lots of hair, I went outside for this picture.
Here I am now:
Conclusion and More Information
It was great.
We would definitely do it again.
Thanks to my girlfriend, Rachel McEvoy, for a great cut.
It really is a dope service. We were surprised how helpful it was.
A lot of people think, “Oh, I can just watch a YouTube video. I don’t need to hire someone.”
But as our stylist said: the YouTube video is NOT going to tell you when you’re doing it wrong, or when you’re about to make a major mistake.
