    I know some of you keep a shaved head or fade and I am sick of paying $20 for something I could do myself.

    Looking for dual purpose hair trimmer (head/body).

    Anyone recommend a good one?

    :rofl:

    I bought clippers for my CAT and PetSmart and he almost murdered me when I tried them on him. I put them away for a couple years and then when I wanted to use clippers I remembered I had them.

    So yeah, go to PetSmart :rofl:

    I've had a shaved head since I was 8, been doing it myself every other day since about 14. Go with an Oster 76, it's a bit more money at first but it will be the last clipper you will ever buy, seriously. Trust me I've ran through multiple Wahl's, VS, etc. brands in the past years. The blades will go as far as 00000 I think, which is ridiculously close.

    my ex left her old pair of salon level WAHLS. It's great.

    I've learned to do it pretty a pretty solid crew cut by myself.

    I go to a Paul Mitchell salon school.

    Great haircuts with really hot chicks for $10.00. They get monitored by the instructors and I've never had a bad haircut.

    The haircuts usually last 45 min or so. They wash and massage your head too, for like 10 mins.

    And for the most part as I said the chicks are all fucking banging.

    Shit rocks.
