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.
