Getting your hair cut while on the road

I just got my hair cut at a military beauty shop and it is by far the worst haircut I have ever had. So bad that I am wearing a ball cap in public. It will look better in a couple of weeks. As a fulltimer, I usually look for a place with good reviews and give it a try. Most of the time I am satisfied. For me, it is just hair and not a national crisis if it does not turn out as expected. I gave up coloring my hair about a year before starting fulltiming. I did not want a new person coloring my hair every time. I get lots of compliments on my natural hair color.

PetSmart for us. We have had really good luck with them and they are everywhere. Nilla is a burr magnet so we have to keep her hair short while we are traveling or we will have a really sticky situation on our hands. Those things are like Velcro only they hurt my fingers trying to pull them off.

We have used them all over the country. For vaccinations I try to find a clinic which is cheaper than a Vet but when our Cody is not feeling well I go right to a local Vet or animal hospital.

I will ask at the RV Park I am staying in or if I see someone with a good cut I will ask them where they had it done. My barber recently retired so I too am shopping.

Thanks for this link, because We are about to hit the road and I was worried about bringing our big honkin' BinFord Super-Suck 9000 vacuum cleaner along with..
Now I see a mini vac that might do the trick... Does anyone have one of these little vacs and how well does it work??

I cut my own. I have a set of $10 clippers from Walmart.

About 10 years ago, I got my hair cut by a cranky old Barber-he put one of those adaptors on the clippers, and cut my hair in less than 5 minutes. I was mad at him, paid $12, and left. When I got home, my wife said"looks good".

Been cutting my own, outside on the patio ever since. When I get done, I go in & look in the mirror, if I need adjustments- I straighten it out .

Peg use to cut my hair while on the road, but too many near misses, and dozens of bald spots, I now wait until we get in and fully set up.

So we have No Cell Phone While Driving laws, and No Texting While Driving, and now we need No Hair Cutting While Driving laws!

I look for a shop in a small town that's been there for years, with a real name, like "Bob's Barber Shop". If it still has a rotating pole, so much the better. Must be a "barber", not a stylist. I avoid shop names with hyper adjectives (super, great, snazzy), or silly spelling (substitutes z for s, or k for c), like "super kutz".

Works fine for me. Never had a bad job.

JFXG, I couldn't agree more. Whatever happened to the good ol' Barber Shop? The morphing from one of the main reasons that compelled me to allow my wife to become my barber.
First, when the local Barber Shops became "Salons", it destroyed one more male enclave, which we do need regardless of PC.
Second, the moment they became "Salons" their interior design and accouterments became feminized, and uncomfortable for guys like me. (No, I'm not intimidated by women. I am happily married, have three daughters and four granddaughters, attend church with dozens of women, whom I like, etc., etc., etc.,) But, there are times when I prefer the company of men, sans women. I want to talk to other guys about guy things; engines, farming, guns, hunting, woodworking, etc. Yeah, I know women have a say in such things now days, and I don't care that they do; I just don't want to listen to them, or talk to them sometimes.
Finally the minute they became "salon's" the price shot up to absolutely unacceptable levels so, because of all of the above, I'll stick with my wife as my barber, and by work shed as my, "sans women bastion."

If you arte ever passing thru Chino Valley AZ and need a haircut, for Gods sake do not stop at Bob's Barber Shop!! I was passing thru and badly needed a cut, and it was cut about as badly as possible!

and that's when we got the FlowBee....
When it turned from a $10 BarberShop into a $25 Salon. The Magazine rack was suddenly void of Popular Mechanics, Mechanix Illustrated, Sports Illustrated and Hunting Digest only to be replaced by Vogue, Star and People Magazines...
My regular Barber at the time had succumbed to the pressures of his wife who managed a beauty salon. They decided to make both businesses into one and collapse the two together...
The smell of that stuff they used on Women's hair for Permanents was worse than anything a man would normally put up with...

I called it quits...
