    Is it easy to cut your own hairs alone ?

    Thank you very much.

    Get a pair of "pro" Waring hair clippers. Use whatever length guard you feel appropriate (I do not use one at all for the closest cut). Cut all the hair on your head. Done.

    For extra credit, then shave your neck and tidy up around your ears, to your taste. For even more credit, lose the beard.

    My poorly-educated guess is that is shorter than 3mm.

    Photographs would look fine, thin you beard out so that it is not so dominant, That is the major distinction between you are the photograph, the model has a very smart style which exploits the realities very well.

    Does Waring make hair clippers? I thought they made commercial-grade blenders :)

    I finally bit the bullet a few months ago. I started with a #1 (1/8"), and went down to a #0 (1/16") when I lost the #1 guard. You can always go shorter, but it doesn't take long for mistakes to grow out at that length. Make sure you shave the back of your neck and upper back if needed, too.
