Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.


I got my hair cut short again yesterday. I went to Ken, my regular stylist. 🙂 When I got to the Hair Cuttery, I was greeted by Ning, whom I had seen a couple of visits ago. She recognized me and smiled a big smile and asked if I needed a haircut. I said that I did, but would wait for Ken. Awk-ward!

My old clipper-cut style is #3 on top, #1 on the sides and back. Ken started by using the #3 clipper. After he cut just the top, my hair looked really wierd. I looked like some character actor from a TV show who plays trailor-park killers or computer wierdos. I had to look away from the mirror. After he got the #1 clipper going, things looked much better. I think this was the most fussing over a clipper cut I’ve ever experienced. He took a long time. I would have tipped him more than usual, but was afraid it would set a precedent. I have been feeling kind of on the cheap side with my tip though. Maybe I’ll up it next time. Till now it’s been $13 haircut, $5 tip. Maybe next time I’ll just give him a 20 and be done with it.

Anyway, here’s the before and after. The first picture is my bed-head from two days ago. It seemed like a good way to show the old length.

Goodbye, long and troublesome hair.

Hello, short stress-free hair.  I love you.

    Now there’s the Brad we all know and love. Bye-bye, Alton Brown Wannabe; Hello, Familiar Head! Now you can leave for Nebraska trouble-free – needn’t even pack that troublesome fat comb that undoubtedly takes up so much room in one’s luggage.

  2. Lauren

    I love the first picture! It’s like a storm.

    Well, now that you look so normal you’re guaranteed to get stopped for something at the airport. Can’t wait to hear the story! 😉

  3. Beth

    Thank goodness! I’ve been waiting MONTHS for this. 😀

    See you tomorrow! YAY!

    If your hair ever looks like that again, you should try composing something. I bet it would be awesome.

  5. Peggy

    Hehehe … Yea, your hair didn’t look long enough to be able to stick out in that Nick Nolte-ish – I wasn’t driving drunk – police mugshot way. (excuse me a sec., LOL)

    Well, it looks like Ken’s a keeper! But how does one cut your bangs? By buzzing or using scissors?

      Does Brad even qualify to have bangs? I mean, his hairline is so far back…

      • Beth

        Those three hairs in front…he calls those his bangs…

        • Karla

          Silly me. How could I have missed those?
