Professional barbers do good haircuts because they have talent and have years of practice. For an average amateur to compensate for the lack of experience, then it becomes critical to have proper tools to guard against mistakes and to speed up your learning. In this video we introduce 13 special tools, some of which are commercially available but you may not have heard of, and some of which are created by us and do not cost you anything. Regardless of the cost, it pays to spend the money or time effort to have those tools because you will recoup the investment by saving thousands of dollars on haircuts over your lifetime.
In our previous video https://youtu.be/H2TUoGtAVkM we discussed short hair. If you keep longer hair on the top section, this video https://youtu.be/Yami2wd1Tg8 includes 8 different haircut experiments to show you what it would look like when you cut to different hair lengths. You may have already heard advice from professionals, but these videos show you that as a beginner, for some of the practices, you may have to do the opposite in order to lower the “bad haircut” risk. They are a must-see before you cut your own hair.
A lot of people are afraid of doing a self-haircut because they fear irreversible mistakes. But even if you do have a family member to help instead of doing a self-haircut, the techniques discussed in this video certainly will help your helpers have more confidence, save their time, and improve the quality of what they do, so this video is not just limited to self-haircutting.

We have quite a few other videos about face masks and shields (PPE). For masks, we use higher pressure to test filters in https://youtu.be/8mCPB8n065Y. If your material led to a different conclusion, i.e. filter 1 is better than filter 2 under one pressure but the opposite is true under another pressure, please let us know because we have yet to find such a case. Is your face mask effective? How do you test the quality of your mask, especially your own DIY masks? In this video, https://youtu.be/25lDoBSsQG8 I have given you multiple strategies, you may choose to use some of them depending on what you have, and varying materials, different particles and different tools. This video can also be used to check filtering effectiveness for things other than masks such as DIY vacuum bags, DIY air purifier filters etc.
