    There is only one option. Buzz cut, #3.

    That is all.

    Or if Mikey is extremely hardcore, give him a high and tight. But he has to be hardcore, or else he'll just look goofy.

    And then, you could shave his head. That is for the extreme though.

    I get the buzz cut #3 or #4 (3/8 or 1/2 inch)

    HA HA HA - I was a Hairstylist in the OLD days...
    Its difficult to explain but I can TRY [​IMG]

    You need to start by cutting a base line, all the way around, just a thin section of hair. Start around the ears.... then the back of the neck....
    Then you start by taking sections - up between your fingers and cut - but make sure you catch a little of the base line hair - and DON"T cut that again.... but use it as a guide.....

    I start in the center at the back once I've cut the base line all around, then I go from center - to the side behind the ear, and do the other side the same...
    then I do above the ears so you're holding hair from the top of the head to the ear a thin section including a little of your base line.... that will give you layers...

    HECK - I need to take pictures doing it.......... Its SO hard to explain....
  4. Thanks sweety.
    Ill take a pic now, i have to use my phone camera, then send the pic to Ed's phone then upload the pic from optusnet, then save pic then upload it to photobucket, then upload it to here!!!
    That is all.
