I used to just go into a hair cutting place where the people who did the cuts were women and tell them to cut it in a way they thought looked good. Was never really disappointed.
EDIT - I guess this is out during pandemic so if you're male, just shave it bald and buy an electric shaver that's meant for bald heads. Use it every day. If you don't like the bald look, wear a hat. Bald head with hat is hand and glove. Sorted.
