  • before, during, and after shots reqd.

  • Before and after, maybe. During deffers not!

  • Im back to cutting my own hair, not because of Covid but because I have absolutely no where to be that requires unshit hair. I buzz the sides and back and hack at the top.

    Can post before n after soon.

  • I have to say, I genuinely enjoy not giving a shit about my barnet. It was long, thick and annoying before and now it isn't. Success. I wonder what the back looks like?

    Problem comes if someone dies suddenly and I have to goto a funeral. You cannot goto a funeral with hair like this.

  • Yes you can, just wear a hat, but in a respectful way.

  • Ah, the good old days of DIY buzzcuts (that then had to be evened out by the girlfriend at the time or she wouldn't go outside with you)

  • You cannot goto a funeral with hair like this.

    You can if they're a Peaky Blinder.

  • Bit of a freestyle redo on the one from the last page...
    Chucked a bunch of pink at it to hopefully stop the previous blue from sticking around for 6months or more

  • I still feel your work deserves a seperate "I am actually good at this" thread


  • It really isn’t that good when you see some of the accounts I follow on insta. I also don’t do it often enough to justify a thread lol

  • Your work really is very good for an enthusiast if not a professional. I've seen a lot of work up close that has been used in big campaigns, fashion week and entries for the British hairdressing awards and when it's 2 feet away from your face it doesn't look as perfect as when its photographed i can assure you.

  • That’s really good of you to say, really appreciated.
    As Lizzie is a unicorn every day(for over 5yrs) we generally aim for hair dos that will wash out evenly and keep looking good. Her hair is too fine to strip/rebleach to change colours so I’ve learned to work with what’s left from the previous job!
    A close friend is a pro colourist and she reckons I do ok considering we use minimal products...

    It’s easy to do a fantastic do for a shoot if you’re gonna just photograph it then strip/or dump brown over it afterwards.

  • That's true hair condition and maintenance for a paying client is a top priority but for a free or often paid model condition and what the hair looks like the next day or weeka to come is rarely even a consideration as long a it looks right for the shot. Once the shoot or show is over the colourist won't lift out or colour over their work. Whatever happens next is the models or models next colourists problem. I've witnessed some of the biggest names in the industry treat models like shit during a show or shoot. Anyway this isn't the professional hairdressing thread so I'll bore off on this one.

  • Not posted one of these for a while..

  • Nice work again.
    I've not been back to a barber since lockdown started and the local guy who I liked spent all his money on coke and then injured himself on a motorbike, I think I'll smash out one more cut before winter hat weather growth, then I'm gonna get you to dye it all pretty colours.

  • Go for it. I accept payment in cash, weed and bike servicing(I’m shit at indexing old mtbs).
    Not a bad deal seeing as a colour job like that is about £300 in Camden these days

  • I'll need to grow my hair and get down south first.

  • I'm also still attempting to cut my own hair - after several years of mixed results, the one golden tip I would give any budding self-barbarist is:

    Don't bother fannying about with different grades on the sides & back and trying to blend it all in, it's a pain in the arse - just take it all in as close & as high as you like then hack into the big overhanging ledge of barnet with a cheap pair of thinning scissors, it'll blend in eventually.
