Almost Cut My Hair

No, that's not Fabio you're looking at. It's just me, The Unknown. I guess it's about time I got a haircut.

"You need to get a haircut." That's what everyone keeps telling me. Gorky said it, my mom said it, five different people I work with, even the 12 year old neighbor kid I don't know. "Hey, old man, get a haircut. Geeeesh." He said to me.

"Geeeesh"? I think that's teenage speak for; "You're over thirty, which means you're older than dirt, so you aren't aloud to have hair past your ears because it makes you look like a total dill weed."

I didn't set out to have these long flowing locks. It just sort of happened. I've only had hair this long once before, but it was the grunge era, so no one cared. I actually prefer my hair a little shorter. It's just easier to manage. Although I have to admit the long hair is growing on me. (Whahahahahaha... Ahem. I smell a bad pun.)

Geeeesh! That was a long way to go to the store to find out it was closed. I really do need a haircut though.

"Long Hair" was drawn on the back of a receipt from my favorite bookstore with my gel roller, then colored in Photoshop. The actual sketch is quite small. About 1/3 the size of a dollar bill.

What kind of haircut should I get? Do you think a good haircut will make you want to leave some love?


  • I would leave you love if you let your hair grow to your buns or shaved it off and you looked like a munk with bad karma to share:))))
    ~love you just 'cause you are you

  • How about a nice Vanilla Ice fade with eyebrows that match? Maybe you can try to bring back that style again.

  • Are you a natural blonde?
    Love...(or maybe not)....Geesssssh!

  • heh heh heh - cut your hair man

    By Blogger Shane, at 20:40  

  • I think you better do a test cut just to make sure you dont do a Samson.
    Hair cuts are always a problem. Which one do you cut? Bwahahaha!

    I always have a problem because there is not that much to start with and when I cut my own the back gets neglected. The Babe then gives me some SH about a Hack Job.

    Now it is definite, Go with the Mohawk!!!

    Love Ya, Mean it!!

  • Keep it long in the middle and style it in a mohawk.. I love grunge hippies with mohawks.

  • Long hair on a man over 30 is fine IF it's shiny, soft, NOT frizzy and it completely covers your skull with no thin spots. Any thin spots, shave the head.
    Just my opinion.
    Fingers running thru your hair love.....

  • you look like a surfer you love to catch waves? XXXOOO

    By Blogger Lee, at 17:17  

  • NO LOVE NO! Please do not cut those curly locks! Let us Tarts dream of them & what could be. Doesn't the significant other want to brush & braid it? I would. ; )

    My vote is: no cute. Maybe just a trim ... maybe!
    Big lovey dovey smooch,
    The Tart

  • I can't believe you have hair.


    By Blogger HARDWAX, at 21:01  

  • while i enjoy running my fingers through the unknown's long locks, he doesn't really like me to play with them too much. i've tried adding a barrette now and then, and he just gets mildly annoyed. truely, whatever my love loves, i can love too.
    love always.

    By Blogger gorky love, at 23:56  

  • Shave the whole thing man! :-)

    By Blogger Rrramone, at 05:30  

  • I would offer to cut your hair next time but if you ask my kids, they will tell you I only have 3 styles that I can do: cereal bowl, salad bowl or mixing bowl ;-)

    Love, as always

  • Is is clean, sexy well-kept flowing locks, or gross dry split ends? Makes a difference.. Do you have good grooming habits and keep it looking nice? Then it stays.

    No Michael Boltons or mullets, but you don't strike me as the mullet type, so I'll let you off.. ;-)

    Keep it. I love long hair, personally..

  • Don't cut it! Long hair is cool. ;)

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Almost Cut My Hair Lyrics

    Almost cut my hair, it happened just the other day.
    It's getting' kinda long, I coulda said it wasn't in my way.
    But I didn't and I wonder why, I feel like letting my freak flag fly,
    Cause I feel like I owe it to someone.
    Must be because I had the flu' for Christmas and I'm not feelingup to par.
    It increases my paranoia, like looking at my mirror and seeing a police car.
    But I'm not giving in an inch to fear cause I missed myself thisyear.
    I feel like I owe it to someone.
    When I finally get myself together, I'm going to get down in that sunny southern weather.
    And I find a place inside to laugh, separate the wheat from the chaff.
    I feel like I owe it to someone.

    By Blogger AndyDoodler, at 12:17  

  • Yah that dill weed look is so old! Avoid the mullet, pony tail and the bowl cut at all cost! Maybe something a little spikey or punk rock might be a intersesting change. If else it will give the kids something to talk about. Love

  • ldahl x 2: Aww... sweet. (blush)
    It's gonna be short. :-)

    caroline: :-)

    detlef: Ha! OUCH! :-)

    joy eliz: Heh, heh. You're punny.

    lou: I was thinking maybe flat-top. :-P

    merlinprincesse: What?! Of course.
    Although my beard grows in red. It's the Scotsman in me. :-p

    shane: Oh! You too eh?

    scarecrow: I've never gone with the mohawk. Someday I will be brave enough to try it.

    thesecondnun: Ha!

    daniela: It's such a rats nest though. :-)

    princess pepper cloud: Hmm... 2 votes for the mohawk so far. :-)

    travelingmermaid: It's shiny all right.

    lee: I love a cool buzz. :-p

    jocelyn: Well... maybe. When you ask like that what can I say. :-)

    andydoodler: Hey! That's what I was listening to when I posted this.

  • holly: Good advice! :-P

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 17:33  

  • No. Because then they will steal your hair, and your soul to make-up Voodoo Dolls of you, and perhaps turn you into a chicken blood eating zombie who listens to the Goo Goo Dolls. The parallelism is frightening, no?

    We all love you, even the ones that hate you, too much for that to happen.

    You could get just a little trim, though.

    By Blogger You've Got What I Need..., at 06:24  

  • you've got what i need: Bwhahaha... ahem.
    Funny. Voo Doo magic won't work on an evil demi-god.
    Bwhahahahahahahahahaha... eh. :-)

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 11:06  

  • I vote don't cut it! Long hair ROCKS!

    By Blogger tiffinix, at 17:48  

  • I'm kinda partial to the mussed and spiky look. love

    By Blogger Janet, at 09:30  

  • Hmmm...curious as to which book store it is that's your favourite. As for your hair...I wonder if you've had it cut yet. In my opinion, the best haircut is one that doesn't look like you just got a hair cut.

    By Anonymous bozena, at 19:59  

  • tiffinix: I hate to say it, but the odds of my getting a job go way up if i get a haircut. When I can make a living as a crazy artist then I will let it grow and grow. Bwhahahahahhaha...

    janet: I hate combing my hair. :-)

    bozena: The cool bokkstore is here.
    I tend to get my hair cut short so I don't have to deal with it for a while. :-)

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 11:55  

  • Very cool, I love you in your "fabio" locks.

  • "I have coolness in other parts of my body. :-P"
