So, it’s almost time for me to go and get my hawk trimmed and neatened up a bit. One problem though, in my experience barbers always manage to fuck my hair up in some horrific manner. I'm sure plenty of you out there have this problem; it's like they're utterly incapable of cutting a hawk. It gets even more complicated due to my sideburns (they always ask me if I want them to be cut off as if I just accidentally left two long patches of hair on the sides and shaved the rest to the bone) Not to mention all of the "are you SURE you want me to do that?" looks I get from them.
So anyways, I'm wondering what everyone out there does when it's time to get their hair trimmed and pruned a bit. Do you go to a professional? And if so, do you find a barber or a salon to be better? Or perhaps you do it yourself. If so, please explain your procedure. Hair horror stories are also welcome :)
Oh, and to clear up any confusion, I am talking about trimming the hair in the hawk itself; not the sides (I do that myself)
