Anyway, if you were thinking of going bald, then I hope the model you have has interchangeable blades.
She surely has.
The Andis BGRC and the ubiquitous Oster 76 with blade heads ranging from #000 to #00000 is what I hear all the black guys using and they have the worst hair to manage in this fashion.
Having finer hair, you might be able to get by with an magnetic motor and shaving with a blade. If you go the blade route, I would say you are a step ahead with a safety razor, make sure you use real shaving cream and keep that scalp hot while you are at it.
Best of luck! I need to either get my hair cut or do it myself. I have thick hairs and a lot of them, save for my gradually thinning hair line and crown, so I guess it is getting easier to do it myself.
I have successfully razor cut layers in a medium cut in my own hair. It just takes so much time. Fading is sorta harder cause there is less room for a mistake.
Also, you can't price out the pleasure of getting a decent cut from a real barber as it includes massage and keeping abreast of the neighborhood gossip.
