When my family was here, Beth was the first to point out that Ikaika's haircut looked like a toupee. I would have been offended, but the evidence was irrefutable. I got a second opinion from mom (yes, it indeed looked like a comb-over), thanked them for their honesty, and promptly reached for the clippers.
I used the #4 comb on the dirt cheap clipper set Mr A uses to cut his hair. Not only is it a million times faster (and therefore, easier) than using scissors and a comb, it's efficient. Sure, he looks a little more devious - "...like a bully who beats up nerds" - but almost all the hair got cut evenly. I can't believe I didn't use this technique before! Simple. I have decided that my son will be getting clipped at home until he goes to college.
