I Love Love Love When Guys Let Me Cut Their Hair

I will trim that shit like a pro
I have no idea how to give a proper haircut. Regardless, cutting a guy's hair is one of my favorite things to do on the planet. It's better than swimming with dolphins. Hell, it's better than piggybacking on Dolph Lundgren while he swims alongside a pack of dolphins! It's that awesome.

I've had haircuts my whole life so when I started cutting my guy's hair, I just mimicked what I remember my hairdresser doing. Knitting my eyebrows in deep concentration, I'll measure out his hair between my fingers and gingerly snip away, hoping for the best. I'll comb it a few different ways and mess it up a bit with my fingers. So when his cut turns out halfway decent, I'll act like I knew what I was doing the whole time even though I totally didn't.

Sure, he'll be a worrywort about it and examine the cut from all angles in the mirror when I'm done. But, if I do a good job, he'll be downright impressed, nodding in approval. Maybe he'll even let me cut it again!

He trusted me with cutting his hair: if that's not love then I don't know what is.

YES. Just did this the other week. Totally wasn’t going to until I was given the alternative of “if not, it’s cool— my brother’ll just buzz it off.” Like shit he will. I have a vested interest in that hair. The creepiness of that statement aside, and only one accidental jab directly to the eye with scissors later, and I think it was successful.

Yay for Riker! Awesome picture.
I cut my boyfriend's hair once, and we were both super impressed with how it came out. But then he wouldn't let me do it again. Maybe he was worried about beginner's luck? Maybe he was just being nice the first time?
