I have incredibly thick and wavy hair. Most of my life I have struggled to keep it looking neat, mostly failing. For Millenium New Year I decided to solve the problem by clipper cutting my hair short. After Anna Kate got over the initial shock she decided she liked my new low maintenance ‘do and offered to cut it for me. We bought a set of Wahl Senior Model 8500 professional clippers and a 1/4″ guard from our local Sally Beauty Supply. That was 12 years ago and Anna Kate just used them to cut my hair again this afternoon.
