if its a straight buzz cut and on one of the combs, just follow contour of head with it, dont be scared of it cutting you.go over it a couple of times for stray hairs and those that lie low.. then check after for odd hairs, get someone or use mirror and cut it with scissors. use them to cut round ears too.

Easy, grade four it all over first and then take it down to what you like, if you stick with G4 just flick round the edges with a G3 to blend it..
Be careful to go over with a comb in all directions to lift up the longer hairs. Once done just run the clippers over every few weeks to keep it smart and stops the new haircut look

I use these http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?storeId=10001&catalogId=1500002201&langId=-1&searchTerms=QC5170http://www.argos.co.uk/wcsstore/argos/images/62-4426051SPA71UC550711M.jpg
£49.99 at the minute at argos but can often be had for £19.99-£24.99 at boots/argos/amazon


They are great as the head rotates making diy cuts a cinch, takes me about 2 minutes once a week to keep mine trimmed.

Don't do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get to the barbers and spend a fiver (inclusive of a cutthroat all around the edges):thumbsup:

Dead easy. I do hubby's, and the kids (though not what I'd call a buzz cut) but I do it myself with those clippers. shoerter round the edges, and the front now the eldest wants a spikey affair, but with his dad's hairline that's wishful thinking for a three year old.

best advice is get a pair of ceramic clippers.... saves you headaches with having to do oil maintenance with the blades!

I do my own once a week and it's so easy. Make sure you cut against the direction of growth, which is usually from the lowest point to your crown and you won't go wrong. I use no comb and at teh shortest setting and it couldn't be easier. Not much hair left on me at the end of it but it looks dead smart.

Do it weekly its not noticable and it doesnt matter whether its diy or a £50 barber if its gonna be uneven regrowth it will be.
