    Hello,

    I just joined this group, is this forum also for discussion for short haircuts on men ?

    I want to know before I get a summer haircut , how a girl feels about such a cut, hence wanted to ask this question. From my childhood, I wanted to get a short summer haircut , I had got it couple of times during my school days , it was rather someone else’s choice.. I will be asked to go to a barbershop that costs less and naturally it will not be like the saloons that we have nowadays. I will be asked to tell the barber to put machine on the sides and back and also very high on the back and sides. Barber will also use the old fashioned clippers and will clip me bald at sides and back, everyone that walks on the road will give a look to the cut that I will be getting. During that time,I used to hate such cut as I will wear cap for a week or so to allow it to grow..

    Now this summer, after a long time, I want to get one such cut , completely sheared at the sides and back. I want to know if this liked by girls.

    thanks.

      thank you for the wonderful suggestion, I want to do step by step , perhaps bald will be next step, firstly I want to try this military style cut , almost bald at sides and back.

      I don’t know if I should tell my girlfriend before I get this though I have hinted her that I am going to very short haircut for the summer , probably not in a parlour but in a barbershop.. am wondering if I should tell her fully..

    Vinod,

    Personally, I love it when guys get their sides and back clippered. When you touch it, it gives velvet like feelings and let me take liberty of saying this, its quite a turn on.
    But I must also mention that if you are getting such short haircut then also keep beard. Like you can keep a one week stubble. Well groomed and well shaped. That adds to the masculine features. And most of the girls i know love beards. Just saying.☺☺☺

      thank you much for the suggestion. Ok I will also try to have week stubble, one suggestion when I asked I got was to go for clean shave also as sides and back being clipped bald , face also should be clean shaven to go with the look. And as I said I just like the old fashioned clippers , nowadays it’s fully electrical , will try to see if there is some shops in and around my place to get such cut. Otherwise last resort would go for electric ones. Personally I don’t like electric ones as it will be too fast , manual takes time ..

      nice question – did you mean to ask short haircuts on me ? or on herself also ?
      I really haven’t opened up such topic with her, when I said I am going to get extreme short haircut for summer , she gave me a weird look, perhaps may not want to see me in that look ? I don’t know what her reaction was though… I will open this topic again with her , while I try to find a barbershop with manual clippers..

      thanks, I just assume that no girl would want to come to a barbershop , if it’s parlour it may work, but not to a normal barbershop, will check ..

    yes, that would my choice for sure but I also wanted cut using manual clippers instead of electric ones.. Let me see which works.. I have to compromise somewhere..

    manual clippers are hand-operated ones , nowadays none is aware of that, new age barbers also don’t know how to use. Just in case if you were wondering what this manual one is..

    ok , cool. Very sorry – thought only boys may know .. Anyways, I casually opened up this topic with my GF, she asked me when I am going to get cut, I told I will let her know. She didn’t say any yes or no after that.

    My GF is not ready to come with me and also tells me to not get very drastic cuts and never girls like that cut and asks me to reconsider. I want to show her this thread to say that indeed there are people that like this..

      Oh, this is good to hear Nisha, I thought girls won’t like such shaved off cuts on sides and back – though it won’t be razor shaved but rather clipper shaved , planning to get it this weekend..

    Razor shave will be too extreme and migjt not look good. I think clipper shave is good enough.

    I think I should send mom with you to barbershop to get haircut. She gets similar haircut… he he he….

      yes razor shave will be extreme, am thinking of clipper shave done high at sides and back , preferably manual clippers.. don’t know what will be the reactions though after the cut, am little nervous and excited to get such cut.

      yeah, that’s my wish too, was growing my hair to get a nice clipper haircut. Have also found a barbershop little far from where I live that has manual clippers, only catch is that this is a barbershop that’s little old , run by aged barber that knows to clip only using manual clippers. It’s an open barbershop with a bench outside to wait and a single chair. Am excited as it brings back my memories of childhood

      Hi Sumaira, Nisha,

      Happy to share the information I got my haircut on Saturday. Manual clippers are too good, its slow and now it’s entirely clipped at my sides and back and top left with very very minimum hair. I am thinking if I should shave off my moustache also or keep it as it is. The barber asked me to come every 2 weeks to keep the cut clean.

      oh yes, sure – I can but it can write into several lines – I can detail from the time I get caped to barber picking up the hand clippers, adjusting, starting, finishing, etc, etc.. if there is interest to read that, I would certainly do..

    Hello,

    are there any size in clippers that’s between 1# and 0 ? I got my sides and back clippered using 1#, wasn’t ready to go full bald,hence curious to know if there is any between these sizes.

    Vinod really nice to hear u got buzzcuts!! Must be fun.
    when my friends get such haircut, i like to touch the buzzed part and get velvet like feel… ha ha ha…

    But unfortunately i dont have much idea about sizes. My hair is too long. Never needed clippers. Lol…

    Thank you Shilpa. Last time I got it cut using hand clippers – it was a slow process and I got it totally bald on sides and back – my GF scolded me for getting such a close haircut, so this time I didn’t want to clipper it bald but 1# clipper wasn’t short enough so was checking if any inbetween size is there.

    How often your friends get such cuts – is it drastic enough, clippered bald –

    I am not sure what type of clippers they use and all. But i dont think it is too drastic. I think yours would be more short. I would love to touch ur velvet like head… ha ha ha…

    yes , mine is very short at the sides and back, I like such cuts , nowadays I want to get such cuts more often. I don’t hear any positive comments though from girls on such cuts in my place.

    Vinod,

    Girls must be shy.
    i know many girls who like short hair on boys. Specially on sides and back.
