What are you doing this lockdown?

I thought this might be fun and informative at the same time. While we’re all stuck indoors during this virus lockdown, what are you doing to pass the time? I, for one, find myself watching more TV. Also I need a haircut pretty badly. I bought one of the electric clippers online but I’ve been afraid to use it. I don’t know why. Well! The cleaning up of all that hair with my mobility problems does scare me. So, what have you done about the haircut problem? Cleanup links?

:joy: I’ve been overdosing on TV while the weather stays cool. But I’ve also been for walks, exploring parts of my neighbourhood I didn’t know existed :slightly_smiling_face: My hair :see_no_evil:… badly needs cutting, and I’ve resorted to tying it up on top of my head to keep it out of trouble :wink: My husband cut his own…lucky we’re still in lockdown :wink:

I’ve been really busy working, PhD is a lot of work! But yeah, badly in need of a haircut…

Used the clipper and gave myself a trim. Found a utube video that I felt comfortable with. Wasn’t a complete haircut but showed how to trim using a clipper. Came out ok. Barber is much better though.

As my sister says, “Covid hair – don’t care!” I’ll admit to taking the scissors to my mop. :smirk: At least we Canadians have a PM who is setting a great example:
Early covid:

Late covid:

Other than that, I’m staying home except for my daily runs around cyberspace .

Great thread!

For anyone that’s interested, here’s the video I found that guided me to trim my hair. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCEI1PggQig and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NF5QJ6uYvHoIt’s really for a man’s trim but who knows LOL.

Just want to say that if you want to try trimming your hair with a clipper please use the longest setting attachment to start. You can always reduce to a shorter length attachment later on. You can’t put the hair back if you start too short. You then have to wait for it to grow back.:sweat_smile:
