For the past few months my girlfriend Courtney has been trying to convince me to see a beautician for hairstyle advice. Her reason is simple…I’ve had the same look since high school, and (she believes) it’s time for a ‘new look’.
I’m sure you’re thinking she’s got a point, it’s not a big deal, and after all, it’s just hair. Understood, but I’m not convinced. After years of frustration with so called ‘professionals’ doing hack jobs to my hair, I finally threw in the towel and started cutting it myself.
My friends even let me practice on them…
Who doesn’t LOVE a great mullet? Seriously.
Eventually, we all got over our ‘mullet phase’ and I began attempting more civilized hair styles…
I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I would be happy to cut your hair!
The more I think about it, perhaps it is time for me to give the professionals another chance. After all, my girlfriend would be ecstatic and it does eventually grow back…

Just to clarify, I was merely suggesting you freshen up your skills and seek some modern inspiration. I would never try to insult you artistic abilities (nor would I let you tough my hair with that buzzer). :*

Hah. Good clarification Courtney. Glad the haircut didn’t create relationship strife!

Courtney screamed bloody murder when I trimmed her bangs when she was a child, her mother didn’t appreciate my attempt to be frugal either.
