- Does a number 1 hair cut look rough?
For the last 10 years I have always had my hair cut very short and 3 years ago I went from a number 2 to a number 1 grade and I like it (it also helps alleviate the psoriasis of the scalp I suffer from).
My wife does not like it, my in-laws do not like it and I reckon my children don’t like it.
As a result I had a number 2 rather than a number 1 today and now I don’t like it and at the end of the day it is my barnet and my self-esteem.
So STW, does a number 1 look rough?

Bollix to number one, attachments off for me. Not got as much on top as I once had so it’s a no brainer. I remember having a dilemma about it years ago and can honestly say that after a day or two to get used to it it’s great. Though when I see myself in the mirror I always think my hair is longer than it is when I catch my reflection.
As mentioned above, I’m not boy band material, more bank robber chique…Posted 7 years ago
I had a bit of a disaster trying to do me own hair with clippers a while ago, ended up having to have a No.1 all over. Frightened even myself, looking in the mirror. Just looked like a psychotic thug. A mate nicknamed me ‘Romperstomper’. 😯
Wondered wether it’s preferable to my ‘normal’ look, ‘Mental Institution Inmate’. When it gets a bit long, then I look like a deranged lunatic. My hairstyle never looks like I chose it myself.
Can’t win really. 🙁Posted 7 years ago
The thing is that I seem to be blessed with really thick hair, although it is going grey, and I am very quickly approaching 40 with no signs of baldness and so when it is cut really short and grows back in it looks like a silver 5 o’clock shadow and most people do seem to associate a number 1 with trouble.
My hairdresser did say that she could give me a 1 and a half, maybe that is the answer?Posted 7 years ago

Depends on how bald you’d be otherwise?
If I grew it in I would look like one of those Yugoslavian war criminals1 You know the ones with the big hair?
I actually think it would be easier if I was going bald as it is more acceptable to skin it all off if that is the case.Posted 7 years agoKunstlerMember
I agree with pieface (reading that back sounds quite strange somehow). Yes, make the most of what you’ve got. I used up my hair allocation when I was young. Now it’s vanishing but still dark – I’ve managed with a number 7 for a while but that isloated tuft at the front may force me to be brutal. Can you dye stubble?Posted 7 years agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Some of us have no choice.
0 all over for me, every fortnight – although my shit hair sticks straight out from my scalp, rather than laying flat, so after a fortnight I look like a right **** (due to the receding hairline).
I don’t look ‘rough’ though, just hard as fook!
As an aside, my face never gets ‘clean shaved’ and gets the clipper treatment when I do my head – face needs doing with stubble trimmer once/twice a week though between haircuts.Posted 7 years agoTandemJeremyMember
making the most of what yo have got…At almost 50 I realised that I still have full head of dark hair and I have been crewcut for decades so decide to grow it. quote honestly its a pain. I have to pay a real hairdresser to keep it in trim, It gets in my eyes when cycling, it takes ages to dry. I am not sure how much longer it will last before the clippers come out againPosted 7 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber
If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Seriously! 🙂
I agree with TJ and I seem to remember from some pics that he has indeed a fine head of hair.
Be proud of your wavy hair and seek out a good barber who is able to ‘tame’ it.
Just ignore all these jealous ones on here. 🙄Posted 7 years agotakisawa2Subscriber

Every summer I think of having a really short hair cut, have it all shaved off.
Use to do it all the time when I was a child, just go into the barbers and have a number 3 or 2.
Did it a couple of years back, just for the convenience, it was summer and hot when wearing a helmet on the bike.
I’m now banned from having them as I look too scary/mad with one.Posted 7 years ago
Pity really as short hair is minimum maintainance and cool in the summer.
a crew cut does not make one look rough.. It is the cut of common sense and practicality..
I vouch for a grade 0 myself.. Beauty really does come from within.. so as long as you don’t have facial features that portray an unsavoury lifestyle a short cut can only serve to make you look assertive.. clean and practical..
The same can be said of long hair that requires tying back..
It’s all the comprimising vanity cuts in between that portray weakness of character..Posted 7 years ago
