Hair Cutting Insights
The barber pole- This is something you don't see as often these days. Maybe because it's origin is from medieval times and the red stripes represent bloody bandages wrapped around the pole since many barbers were involved in surgeries and blood letting.
Some advice- Be careful when you use the phrase "finger tight on top." This length can be vary greatly depending on your stylist. I once requested this from a large Polynesian woman with big fingers, but I could hardly tell my hair had been cut when she was done.
Vacuums- Don't look down upon a hair cutting establishment if they use vacuums to clean off your shirt and hair after. I like to have my hair vacuumed. I don't care how fancy a salon is, if they don't vacuum your head after, you are getting jipped.
The neck shave- This is the best part of a haircut. I love trimming up the scruffy peach fuzz and giving someone a clean cut look.
Least favorite part- Being asked if you want your eyebrows trimmed. When someone asks you that, it is worse than being called sir for the first time. It means you are getting old. At least I haven't had anyone ask if they could trim the hair coming out of my ears yet.
After reviewing several of my recent posts, I just noticed a trend. I've recently confessed that I'm not really into the NFL, I'm bad at home repairs, I'm scared of insects and snakes, and I cut hair. Some people might jump to conclusions but I'd like to make it clear that I am still a very manly man. Now if you excuse me, I have to go work on my next post which is on the topic of the ten most fabulous figure skating ensembles of all time.
