Home Haircuts for ALL with Wahl

Haircuts are a necessity but sometimes they come with a luxury price tag. Home haircuts just sound bad. One might expect that old fashioned “bowl cut” or uneven bangs. Believe it or not Rob and Shaun have been getting home haircuts for a while now. Shaun has had more or less the same haircut since he was 3, a baldy cut with a slight fuzz left. He’s also had Mohawks here and there but either way I’ve done most of the cutting of his head with Wahl clippers.

With those same old Wahl Hair Clippers I’ve been able to keep up on Shaun’s hair as well as start working on Rob’s hair. Over the summer Rob decided to go for a new look; one close to the head. I took the clippers down to the #2 guide and gave him a new ‘do. He loves it; it’s easy and best of all FREE.

I got a new hair clipper set from Wahl a couple weeks back, and decided it was time to tackle my own hair. I figured I’m not that picky with my style, it’s short, choppy, asymmetrical and sometimes funky; I could accomplish that myself. I headed into the bathroom and took the clippers with the #5 guide to the back of my head. Going up from the nape to just below my crown I was getting a good feel. I had to call in reinforcements because I couldn’t reach and see all that well. Rob came in and finished that up and took it behind my ears. He did good. I continued with a mix of clippers, scissors and blending shears and the final outcome was pretty awesome; exactly what I want but don’t always get from stylists.

here is my before hair, long, shaggy, blah

 

I’ve found a new hairstylist and assistants, Rob and Wahl Color Pro Clipper Set. The key is to really take care of them. Use the included oil, clean out the hair and keep blades aligned. Knowing now that these simple steps would’ve kept my old clippers in good condition I will keep my new kit in tiptop shape.

Pantene Pro-V Celebrates the Most Beautiful Tresses!

To support the release of “Tangled,” Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 50th full-length animated feature, the world’s leading hair care brand is celebrating the iconic mane of golden-haired Rapunzel to raise awareness of its Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign.

Started in 2006, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign encourages people to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair to make real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. More than 220,000 ponytails have been collected for the program to date, and Pantene is aiming to reach its goal of two million inches of total hair collected by year’s end!

Rapunzel’s 70 feet of hair serves as inspiration for Pantene by inspiring families to give back, and teaching children the value of supporting a cause for social good.

Pantene is encouraging YOU to donate your hair! We’re hoping you’ll grow your hair (70 feet of hair not required—only 8 inches!) to magical lengths and make the kindest cut of all.

In order to make the most beautiful, realistic and durable wigs, donated hair must meet the following requirements:

  • Donated hair must be a minimum of 8 inches long (measured from just above the elastic band of the ponytail to the ends)
  • If donating wavy/curly hair, you may straighten it before measuring
  • Hair should be freshly washed and completely dry, without any styling products
  • Hair may be colored with vegetable dyes, rinses and semi-permanent dyes. It cannot be bleached, permanently colored or chemically treated
  • Hair may not be more than 5 percent gray

If you or anyone you know plans to donate, let us know on the Beautiful Lengths tab on Pantene’s Facebook page!

“Pantene is a brand that celebrates strong, healthy, beautiful hair, so working with Disney on ‘Tangled,’ a film featuring an empowered, iconic character that’s known for her long and strong tresses, was a natural choice for us. We’re thrilled with the Pantene-Disney collaboration as we both have huge passion for spreading the message about the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign.”

This is NOT a sponsored post but a message that encourages others to do something good with their time or in this case their hair 🙂

The sleek aluminum bottle weighs less but offers a better value while also leaving zero footprint due to its reusability.
