Among those, I asked my then-boyfriend to take an actual pair of clippers and give me a long-ish buzz cut before an extended trip to Southeast Asia. Listen, y'all — what I did wasn't brave. Thailand is very hot. Especially in July. I was just groping towards survival. And to be fair, he did a pretty decent job. Though, to be fair in another respect, I think you'd have to be fairly deliberate to do a poor job on someone's head with clippers. Those things are almost foolproof.
