Don't forget your eye protection. Virus can enter thru your eyes as well.I have a buddy with very little hair on top. Yesterday he told me he needed a haircut, and I asked "Which one?" He gave me a frown in return.
Another buddy, also with very little hair on top, seems to not catch on to things happening very quickly. A few years ago, something happened that made me tell him that I had figured out why he had so little hair on top. When he asked why, I told him that it was "because so much was going over his head".
At 78 I'm finally going grey, but still have quite a bit up there, except for a thin spot that's becoming visible to all but me. I got a hair cut 2 days before they announced the lock down, but I'm now getting quite shaggy. The barbers here are supposed to be open again this week, so I'll be one of their customers the next time that I venture out of the house. With 7 heart surgeries and 2 cancer survivals, I'm convinced that if I get this virus, that I won't survive it, so I'm only going out to where people are when absolutely necessary, and always do it with a mask, gloves, and hand sanitizer.
A sure sign that your mask isn't protecting you. The cheap ones (not very cheap now) don't have an adequate sized wire in them to allow you to form them over your nose. When your breath is fogging your glasses, inhaled air is getting through the same leak, so the mask isn't doing it's job. I've added a piece of 18 ga solid copper wire and tape to the masks that need it, so they can be formed over my nose and not leak. I save the wire when I dispose of the mask, to add to another mask.My glasses keep fogging up with the dang mask on!
I started using 3M 8511 masks several years ago in my shop and when I mow. With the valve to let your exhaled breath out, there's no more fogged glasses. It's very comfortable to wear. In addition, when COVID-19 came along it meant we already had the recommended N95 protection.My glasses keep fogging up with the dang mask on!
My haircuts are a pretty simple thing...just get it wet, comb it straight down my back, and trim the ends. A number of years ago I decided I shouldn't pay a barber or stylist to do something that simple, so I talked my wife into doing it. The first time she did it, she was so nervous about the whole affair that she was literally in tears. Granted, she can cry at the drop of a hat. Sad, happy, it doesn't matter. I've seen her cry over a TV commercial, lol. It's one of her endearing qualities....I let the wife cut my hair. Probably the single most stressful event in our marriage. It took more than an hour with both of us doing it...
Back in the early '80s when my band was touring, we were playing a week-long engagement in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Our bass player Jeff had been growing a beard, but one afternoon mid-week he decided to shave it off. He got halfway done, and decided to leave it like that that for the show that night, just to see if anyone noticed.Well, I decided to let the wife try and cut my hair. She said she would start on one side and see how it goes. She cut for a minute or two and took a look and said I need to even this area up. This went on for a half hour and she was still trying to "even up" the right side. She finally gave up and this was the result.
