Haircut time
Sup, those half a dozen of you left on the eljays? Hot damn, haven't posted since October.

Tomorrow afternoon, I'm having my hair cut. Instead of the usual `trim off the split ends' I've been doing since I had a foot hacked off over a decade ago, I'm mixing things up a bit. Having had the same style for even longer than I've worked at drewuniversity as a staff member, maybe it's time for change?

No, this isn't something jedimentat's making me do. It was my idea. I didn't want to get a haircut until I had graduated from college and got a career going. Didn't know it would take me twelve years to graduate from college, but there you go.

I'm taking suggestions for my new style. Here are the ground rules:
  • No shorter than base of the collar/shoulder length. I want room to trim further, if I don't like what I've got.
  • I'm keeping my beard, so hairstyles that won't go with a full beard are right out (i.e. no flock of seagulls).
  • Keep in mind that my hair is fairly lifelessly straight, and I'm thinning up top a wee bit.
  • I prefer low-maintenance hair, but I'm not afraid to go for something a bit rocking, but I'd like to remain employable, but I'm an IT professional.
  • Suggestions must be in by 3 PM tomorrow for consideration.

Seriously, though, congrats on making such a big change... are you nervous?

It *is* a good look, and I'm not even into long hair on guys (sorry, Russ!)

James Callis has a LOT of hair, though (or if not... really good product!) with thinning hair it may not work.

The third one down from that last page isn't so bad at all, and recommended for thin hair. Thanks!

But could I pull it off being blond and with thin hair?

I'd probably have to use product.

I'm hella nervous. But I'm also excited. It's been a long time coming. The long ponytail's had a good run, but it's time to see what else is out there.

ok you all may hate me but...

I have several reasons why this is a NO

Wrong colorings - hair and skin
Wrong face structure - this guy is WAY more angular than our guy
Wrong facial hair - this guy is more trimmed than kingfox will keep his

NOT quite sure as to hair cuts, I'll google and post a pic.

Meantime, you could maybe look at this ...?

here be a site of interest (http://www.hairzingers.com/mens-hair-styles.htm)

personally, I like #1 page 1) as shown on Brad pitt,

#1 page 2 as on Ethan hawke.

#1 on page8 = owen wilson - this is better if you think you have a high forehead cos the fringe covers it somewhat.

If you're going to an awesome place, trust the stylist -- they'll be able to work with your hair amount and type, head shape, and all that while giving you an up-to-date look. This guy was reportedly amazing and had excellent ideas.

I am going to an awesome place, but I want to go in with some rough idea of what I want to walk out looking like.

That place uses the diablo font, so clearly they're awesome

They're going to attack each hair individually, but still cut thousands of them down to size!

i just read this ...

what are the results???

Okay, this is funny because I've been growing my hair out and:

"I prefer low-maintenance hair, but I'm not afraid to go for something a bit rocking, but I'd like to remain employable, but I'm an IT professional."

Is exactly my criteria. Also seriously considering the James Callis direction, especially since I do have a similar "color scheme" and type of hair.

Anyway, what are the results? This post is old by now!

You missed the results on Facebook. Here you go:
