Back in November I cut my hair, by myself with my ghetto ass clippers; I intended to simply "take a bit off" but half way through the cut, the spring that decides the length of the cut broke. So to match the much shorter/bald patch, I had to even it out. Which resulted in me rocking almost NO hair just when it got bullshit cold. FUCK.
Fast forward to last Thursday. My hair grows super fast and I figured enough time had elapsed when a proper Barber could do something with my head. I actually did some re-con, in the form of flipping through 2 past issues of GQ for inspiration [I should note that I have NEVER taken a picture with me - as to say "make me look like this!"]. The actual (scanned) picture I took with me (below) reveals both my latent narcissism and vanity (it's a 2-FER!).
If only I was 25% as hot as that guy. I've had super short hair since at least the last 10 years. Many times I've simply buzzed my hair off solo, but after I saw this picture, I really wanted something similar...yet just a bit different. Like, instead of buzzing everything with a #1 blade, I was thinking of using a #4 all around, and then using a sharp comb blade thing to give the sides, back and top texture.
But this was lost on the Serbian woman cutting my hair. She did a good job, for real, although not one person has made any mention of it. Damn! Haha. This $15 job looks no different from the $0 version I can do in my bathroom. With one huge difference...anyone else really, really fucking enjoy the hot shaving cream/straight blade shave? I think it's awesome!
