It's summer. Between work, play and the travel between the two, finding time for a trip to the barber can be tricky. Why not take things into your own hands (while saving a little cash on the side) and cut it yourself? Of course, we're not advocating replacing professional haircuts altogether. The idea is to keep a good cut looking fresh and keep your hair from weighing you down and heating you up when the weather's oppressive. Besides, there's something freeing about cutting your own hair. It only takes a few minutes and because the result is never a dramatic change, you always look clean and kempt. All you need is a steady hand, the right tools and some basic tips.
