Every since I started getting thin on top I've been cutting my own hair with an A5 turbo and 1/4" guards.  I couldn't se the point in paying someone to cut my hair when there was a big hole in the back. :'(

Guilty..     In fact, when we were clipping last week, he stopped & said, can you trim my sideburns & the curl off the back.     Brushed off the clippers and trimmed away.    We need to take a little more time to give him an all over really soon.

You could probably get ringworm by touching anything that has been in contact with ringworm.. if you are suseptable and there is enough on whatever you are touching.    Heard of a judge at a sheep show one time that ended up with ringworm on his hands...

Most of the blades that I use to cut human hair are used exclusively for that purpose. If I use a cattle blade, I always use Kool Lube which I believe has antiseptic properties. I've been cutting five heads of hair for a few years now and have not given anybody ringworm.

Last year I ran short of time to get a haircut before we were leaving for a show and I NEEDED one.  I sat down on a bucket in the clipping room and handed my 9 year old daughter the two speeds with a #3 pig clipping guard on and told her to have at it.  You should have seen her face, some were between excitement and total fear.  She got a feel for it pretty fast and used a #2 for the sides and even did a little free hand blending.  Thats were I made the mistake!  Oh well, it all grows back!

 Do they have to sign a waver/disclaimer?

 We've been know to get the clippers out and give a buzz cut to anyone that wants one.

i've been cutting my own hair with scissors and a comb or brush for about 30 years.

That explains so much! !  Me too minus the comb and brush <cowboy>

I cut my boys' hair with clippers (and guards) all the time.  I think my ten year old might have been to the barber once or twice, my sixteen year old maybe three or four times.  They'd rather I did it, and if it saves 10 bucks a pop, I'm in.  I've offered to let the sixteen year old cut mine, but he won't try it - I've always worn mine a little longer anyway.  I use different clippers and blades on the kids than I do on the calves, 'cause I don't want to spread anything like ringworm (and because I don't clip cattle with guards).
