i’ve never understood how some people — especially men — can keep the same hairstyle and facial hair their entire life. i get bored with mine about every 6 to 9 months. so i change. i cut my hair or grow it in; i color it; i grow a beard some hideous excuse for a fu-man-chu (a la picture on my blog masthead), or shave it off. i’ve had shaved, short, medium and long hair, along with various mohawks and fauxhawks. i’ve had black hair and red hair and blonde hair and streaked-multi-tinted hair, and even blue hair (more than once). i’ve had a full beard and mutton chops and gotees and soul patches and the aforementioned fu. and i’ve added one piercing on one ear and three on the other (plus my three tattoos, which, when i get a new one, seems to delay my need for hair change for a few extra months).
i was shaving my head with a #3 guard (very short) until july of 2005. since then, i’ve had two haircuts: both just to neaten things up a bit. so it’s been a year and a half. and i’m bored and way overdue for change. but it took so long to grow my hair to this lenght, and my wife really likes it. so i didn’t want to cut it all off.
so i went blonde. well, mostly blonde. it’s bleached blonde on the outside, and black underneath. (it’s lighter than this pic makes it look)
now i can rest for a few more months.
