i’m getting tired of having this

00:01

tumbleweed on top of my head i just i

00:03

need it to be a little bit

00:04

less uh crazy not only going to try to

00:08

i’m going to try to dye it i’ve never

00:10

dyed my hair before

00:11

so um i’ve never cut my hair before so

00:14

i’m really scared

00:15

but i’m up for the challenge we’re gonna

00:17

just have fun with it because nobody’s

00:19

gonna see my face anyway

00:21

never really done this before so we’ll

00:23

see how it goes

00:24

i have one leg up on everybody though

00:26

because i have been a professional

00:28

hairdresser for 10 years

00:29

ugly and i cut my hair all over one time

00:33

i think this would be pretty easy

00:36

keep your expectations low so

00:39

you won’t end up disappointed so this

00:41

could go one or two ways either really

00:43

bad or really good

00:45

good morning a new day is done a new

00:48

the nervous part is that i’m gonna take

00:50

my glasses off and i’m blind so

00:52

you just usually use these for body hair

00:54

i think these are all like beard

00:56

tools i only have these tiny these are

00:58

the sharpest i have so today we are

00:59

going to use

01:00

my trusty eyebrows we’ve got some

01:03

kitchen scissors some nails

01:04

and a bit of trimmer make do in

01:07

quarantine

01:09

let’s get started here we go i’m

01:12

actually just procrastinating

01:13

you know something just feels like a

01:14

good idea at the time

01:17

while we’re doing this um you want to go

01:19

and say prayer

01:22

like that let’s go for it oh this is

01:26

maybe i should just stop here like

01:28

honestly i’m done

01:31

okay we’re we’re starting this cannot

01:33

see any of this

01:34

first of all oh my god

01:38

this is so funny doing this by myself

01:42

it’s got a lot more real the video that

01:46

he said up and then back

01:49

up and then back i’m stalling i don’t

01:53

want to do this

01:59

you have to be kind of ambidextrous for

02:00

this i can’t see behind my head

02:03

how is this going to work

02:06

that is a little concerning i was doing

02:08

so good and then it looks like i’m

02:12

oh my god i keep talking while i’m

02:14

cutting my ears how is your guys’s

02:16

courting going

02:17

spend a lot of my time in quarantine on

02:20

zoom calls like everyone else and

02:22

sometimes my morning starts at two

02:24

and that’s perfectly fine again joseph

02:27

the couples

02:28

that got to record this oh

02:31

i gave myself a bald spot already

02:34

i don’t even know what i said i was

02:35

going for the beginning of this it’s

02:36

just we’re taking some free artistic

02:38

direction right now

02:43

it’s so good on my face just to have the

02:46

clippers like sitting here

02:51

i’ve never i feel like everybody else is

02:54

going to be

02:55

filming this video as me do it give

02:56

themselves glamorous haircuts

02:58

oh that felt wrong i feel like i look

03:00

more manic

03:01

than i did before with long hair

03:04

what is this this what is that

03:08

like i’m kind of rushing through this

03:09

and i really shouldn’t be but you know

03:11

what it’s hair it’ll go back

03:12

and oh my god it’s so short wait this is

03:15

bad right now this is the most touch

03:17

i’ve gotten in the past five weeks right

03:19

why did i just do that without looking

03:21

in the mirror okay the this decision to

03:23

go like that

03:24

bad decision she’s bald the back’s

03:27

really hard

03:28

but no one’s gonna see the back of my

03:32

until i get out quarantined and i’m

03:33

placed on a pillow again anyway so

03:36

oh my god i think i went too deep you

03:40

i use the wrong guard now it’s okay

03:44

i see the spot that i freaking caught

03:46

okay we’re just pretty much that’s not

03:48

am i feeling regret right now perhaps

03:52

i mean i could always wear a hat i’m

03:54

missing it

03:56

so this isn’t scary there might be a

03:58

part two that’s where i just end up

03:59

shaving my entire head off at this point

04:02

how is it shorter wow i’m doing such a

04:05

decent okay job

04:06

i think the first thing i’m gonna do

04:10

quarantine’s over is go eat at a

04:12

restaurant

04:13

can’t wait to go out to the bars again

04:16

i’m looking forward to just like

04:17

going out again and displaying my new

04:23

really this is just like can i fix what

04:26

damage i’ve done

04:26

so i can hear it still cutting stuff so

04:29

i’m just gonna go by sound right now

04:31

this seems dangerous watch me do it oh

04:35

i went diagonally why would i do that

04:38

oh my god so i’m gonna um get a shoelace

04:43

inside around my neck so hopefully like

04:45

i can feel like where the guide is

04:47

okay we’re gonna try

04:53

sometimes i’d like to sabotage myself

04:57

i just cut my finger my head felt so

04:59

much lighter right now

05:00

did it work

05:04

i wonder what it would look like if i

05:05

bleached it

05:08

i’m not gonna hair pretty sure

05:11

i’m gonna bleach it i’m gonna have a

05:13

little bit of extra fun and why not cut

05:15

the sides off and then add a little bit

05:16

of hair onto the top

05:18

bam are you ready

05:24

honestly not bad

05:27

tada i’m extremely in love with it and

05:30

the way it turned out

05:32

let me just do what’s good so this is

05:34

the final look

05:36

i am not mad about it from the front

05:40

so this is how it looks so i’m probably

05:44

just gonna

05:44

wear it like a little ruffled up so you

05:48

can’t really tell that it’s super messed

05:50

this is it actually the more i look in

05:54

the mirror the more i think i like it

05:57

i have plenty of times why not play with

05:58

a little bit of hair pieces something i

05:59

like to do for fun

06:00

i love playing with fake hair

06:04

and big reveal i will not be wearing a

06:10

i mean it definitely could have gone

06:11

worse i feel like i could maybe go

06:13

outside without hat on

06:16

maybe and that about does it for the

06:18

transformation i can’t complain

06:20

this is a lot better than what i

06:21

expected it was done at home bleached at

06:24

kind of home can’t complain i think i

06:27

i mean i don’t hate it it’s not

06:29

professional and it’s not the best i

06:31

have ever had

06:32

but i did it i’m prepared to do this

06:34

again if i have to in quarantine like

06:36

i think it was a great and unique

06:38

experience just doing it by myself and

06:40

it’s something that i’m proud of

06:41

i’m gonna rock it and we’ll go back

06:43

would i do it again

06:44

absolutely not oh hi i didn’t see you

06:48

06:49

freeing i realized that

06:52
