A buzzcut is a simple style that works well for most men and is now generally acceptable for everyone from athletes to executives (and it's a great way to save a little cash on trips to the barber). It's also a fairly easy haircut to give and maintain yourself. As someone who makes a living from cutting men's hair, I don't often give advice on how to cut men's hair at home, but this one makes sense because it's so easy. Reluctantly, I suggest you check out my article on how to give yourself a buzzcut for details.

With Mother's Day this weekend, now it the perfect time to maintain the mane. What mother doesn't want to see her son neat and well groomed? I can't think of one. Fortunately those neat, well groomed styles are all the rage today, so you'll still look stylish when you pick up mom to take her to dinner on Mother's Day. Best thing you can give mom for mothers day is YOU, but show up looking great.
On a slightly more serious note (and one that's a bit off-topic), I lost my mother several years ago and there's not a day that goes by I don't think of her. If you don't see your mom on Mother's Day, call her. You'll be glad you did and so will she.
