It's not too hard if you don't worry about blending or fading. But if you're trying to go for a fade, then it gets tricky, and you'd probably need a hair clipper set with a bigger number of attachment combs. I find the lower back of my head is the most difficult, as the hair kind of grows at different angles. Doing the back and sides also usually requires another mirror, although you could just feel your head until it feels all the one length. But the shorter you cut, the easier it is, I find.

Set up a mirror in front of another mirror, stand between them. Worked for me. prepare to need to retouch the first couple times, and make sure to check out your work from above and below with angling the mirrors when you think you're done.

I once "buzzed" my friends hair with a kitchen scissor. We were drunk but only 15 years old, so none of us really cared about the outcome. His parents did though lol8[1].gif

Most difficult part to me is blending the top with where the buzz ends on the side. Depends how you do it. I have to use scissors for that part.

Go for it. Just start off by using the bigger number attachment combs (4 or 5), then work your way down until you achieve the shortness you want. I usually just stand in front of my bathroom mirror and use a small hand mirror for the sides and back. When I cut the back of my hair, I just sort of lean up against the sink, with my back facing the larger mirror, and look at my reflection in the smaller mirror I'm holding. Definitely awkward, but since I buzz my entire head, I find it I van get my cutting time down to maybe 20 minutes, mostly because I'll stop to clean out the hair in the clippers, and occasionally oil to the blades.

If you're trying for a Boardwalk Empire type cut, it's probably not too hard. A number 2 attachment comb should give your hair the proper shortness, although a 1 might make it edgier. Keep in mind, though, that there is quite a difference in length between 1 and 2. If you get a clipper with a 1.5 attachment comb, that would probably be ideal. But looking at Michael Pit, his hair looks like it has almost no fading, so if you have straight hair, you could probably do it yourself no problem.
