Unlike many of you I like going to the barber's! I enjoy the time it gives me, away from work and dare I say it free from SWMBO, the chance to flick aimlessly through either the Daily Mirror or one of the motoring mnagazines (yes I also find cars interesting).
Living in the North, and going to a suburban barber the price is not too bad, I still get change from a tenner, which I can afford being in full time employment.
I am still gifted with hair and have a beard as well.
Regarding the guards that the barber uses, I know of grades 0.5 to 7, the latter being the longest. For some time I had my head cut to a 5, the sides of my head to a 3 and my beard to a 1 - thus making for a nice 531!
I would trust my wife to do a good job, but to be honest it just seems like going a bit too far!
As to saving money, well put it this way I just wished I still smoked so I could give it up!
