Everything About Quick & Easy Haircut

Professional barbers do good haircuts because they have talent and have years of practice. For an average amateur to compensate for the lack of experience, then it becomes critical to have proper tools to guard against mistakes and to speed up your learning. In this video we introduce 13 special tools, some of which are commercially available but you may not have heard of, and some of which are created by us and do not cost you anything. Regardless of the cost, it pays to spend the money or time effort to have those tools because you will recoup the investment by saving thousands of dollars on haircuts over your lifetime.

In our previous video https://youtu.be/H2TUoGtAVkM we discussed short hair. If you keep longer hair on the top section, this video https://youtu.be/Yami2wd1Tg8 includes 8 different haircut experiments to show you what it would look like when you cut to different hair lengths. You may have already heard advice from professionals, but these videos show you that as a beginner, for some of the practices, you may have to do the opposite in order to lower the “bad haircut” risk. They are a must-see before you cut your own hair.

A lot of people are afraid of doing a self-haircut because they fear irreversible mistakes. But even if you do have a family member to help instead of doing a self-haircut, the techniques discussed in this video certainly will help your helpers have more confidence, save their time, and improve the quality of what they do, so this video is not just limited to self-haircutting.

Is your face mask effective? How do you test the quality of your mask, especially your own DIY masks? In this video, https://youtu.be/25lDoBSsQG8 I have given you multiple strategies, you may choose to use some of them depending on what you have, and varying materials, different particles and different tools. This video can also be used to check filtering effectiveness for things other than masks such as DIY vacuum bags, DIY air purifier filters etc.

Besides the issues of face mask shortage, we also have experienced a shortage of toilet paper. What do you do if toilet paper is sold out and using other kinds of paper will clog the pipes? Americans use an average of 23.6 toilet paper rolls per person a year. Here is my DIY solution to resolve that problem:

All Different Mask Testing Methods at Home

https://youtu.be/8mCPB8n065Y

When you test filter materials at home, you may have different particles available to you to use or different equipment to detect the particles. Therefore one method may not suit all your needs. In this video I am going to show you 3 levels of particle filtering tests I have invented for your face masks or filters. These presentations are improved and updated a bit from the previous videos in which they were shown.

Many viewers commented on our previous video questioning the validity of higher pressure tests. We answered the questions and believe our test is a reasonable extrapolation. If your material led to a different conclusion, i.e. filter 1 is better than filter 2 under one pressure but the opposite is true under another pressure, please leave comments below because we have yet to find such a case.

In this video, we mention our previous video of “Easiest & Cheapest Way To Fix an Overheated Laptop In 30 seconds.” If your compressor gun is different than the one in the gas station and you are unable to connect to the bottle, I offered a simple solution in that video, here is the URL Clean laptop in 30 seconds

Detect wires without X-ray vision or special tools

https://youtu.be/uz2fekHlBgw

A lot of the time, you suspect an electric wire is broken, but would like to confirm where it actually broke. Other times you simply want to locate wires placed behind a wall. Without any expensive tools, I will show you how to use two cell phones to do this.

Your project and environment could be uniquely different, so this video only provides an idea to inspire you to solve your own problem. Note that if you are dealing with high voltage circuits, you need to turn them off to be safe.

Subscribe to my channel because my invention is unique and I bet you have never ever seen anything like this before. Please share this with your friends. I know earbuds are cheap, but for the sake of environment, please attempt to fix them instead of throwing them into a landfill.

DIY face masks in 10 seconds & improve cheaper masks

https://youtu.be/Wg-cwD4Edac

What do you do if all face masks are sold out at every single store? After the coronavirus began spreading, there were soon no more face masks at any store. Restocking could take weeks. I will show you how to make your own DIY mask in 10 seconds.

What if the N95 masks are not available to you but you have a surgical masks? An N95 mask can filter at least 95% of airborne particles if you wear it correctly. A surgical mask does not effectively filter small particles from the air and does not prevent leakage around the edge of the mask when the user inhales. If you only have cheap masks, the biggest problem is that they may not fit well and there will be leakage around the edge of the mask. Since surgical masks are not designed to pass a fit test, I will show you how to make the mask fit if you don’t have access to an N95 mask.

We also proposed a couple of simple tests you can do to compare the effectiveness of different materials you have at home. We propose these minimal testing methods not because they are rigorous but because having an unrealistic sense of security by wearing a mask when it doesn’t fit well or being unaware of the level of effectiveness is also dangerous because you might then over-expose yourself to whatever it is you are trying to avoid. Be aware that having a false sense of security is dangerous. So even for a N95 mask, you need to wear it correctly and need to perform fit test.
