I was looking in the mirror today at my raggedy locks, thinking to myself that I needed to get a haircut. I intended to get it buzzed so I wouldn’t have to fool with it for a while. Then it occurred to me that there was no reason to go out and pay someone to cut it extra short when I could simply cut it all off myself. So I took my cuticle scissors and flipped open the whisker trimmer on my electric shaver and went to work. I used my digital camera to get to the back of my head; I would flail away for a while, take a picture to check my progress, and repeat those two steps until I was finished. Then I used the shaver itself to smooth everything out.
I think it was a good move. My hair is lousy – thin and brittle – and thinning with all due speed, so I may as well divest myself of it. This will also make hair care, which is not something I enjoy, very easy. And it could be a snappy new look for me.
