I go for a long comb over + fade hair style. I saw a guy on the street a few years back, and thought I could pull that off in the bathroom. Super easy, #2 clippers up the sides and back, and scissors to trim the long comb over to taste (I go mostly straight front to back, although it is angled). On the side where the comb over starts, I bring the clippers right up to its roots, so there is only a short line pointing that way. I also use a baseball cap to shape the trimming in the back / on my neck. Doesn't require much skill, but looks pretty decent and modern. The only time in my life I received compliments on my hair .
Something like https://www.menshairstylestoday.com/wp- ... or-Men.jpg although I prefer it to not be so long in the front.
What skills to learn, what tools to get
