Buzzcut

A couple of the guys in our office shave their own heads, & I've been meaning to pick up some clippers so that I could give it a shot. Anything to save money, right? So two nights ago I finally went to Longs and splurged 18 bucks on the deluxe clipper set.

Cutting your own hair is harder than it looks. I figured it would be like mowing the lawn - set the clippers to 1/8, pass 'em over your head, and you're done.

Thirty minutes later I was still struggling to get an even cut, and I was looking more like De Niro in Taxi driver than anything else. I should've waited to do this on Halloween - it would've made for a hell of a costume. It took about three tries before I had a cut I was satisfied with.

It ain't pretty - the best compliment I've received is it looks even. But I'm saving twenty bucks a month, and at the end of the year that'll be worth five nights in Paris. Sacrificing pretty for Paris sounds like a fair trade to me.

I tried to grow my hair, I really did! Almost went a whole year without a haircut. And baby, it was bad. Natty ratty bad. It was fine with lots of product. This? Is liberating.
