The barcode is so common among the aging office workers here that you have to specifically tell barbers not to style your hair that way. That’s at the old-school barber shops, though, the more fashionable stylists may advise you to go natural.
The comb-over champion, btw, was my old boss. He didn’t just cover his scalp, he’d grown a two-foot-long snake of hair from one side of head, which he would then swirl onto the top in a giant lump. Outside, he’d always wear a little knit beanie to hold everything in place, but the moment he came inside it would always come cascading down and he’d nonchalantly swirl it back up. It was the most godawful-looking thing I’d ever seen, but it was great fun to go with him to meetings and watch clients stammer and squirm the first time they saw it.
