Here's the situation: you're stuck at home, and it's been weeks since your last haircut. You're starting to look a little raggedy, so you decide its time to take the drastic step of cutting your own hair.
But just how do you do it? How do you cut your own hair so it doesn't look like you got into a fight with a pair of hedge clippers?
Truth be told, I don't know. But there are plenty of tutorials online willing to help you master the home haircut if that's something you need to do.
This tutorial from Alex Kouras teaches you the essentials of keeping your hair trimmed in a medium-close style.
