Epic Haircut

Actual conversation with my barber this afternoon:

Barber: So you just want a trim and keep it pretty long?

Me: No, you can take a lot off. Off my collar, over my ears, out of my eyes.

Barber: But you want it left pretty long?

Me: You can take a fair bit off.

Barber: Oh, you want a man’s haircut!

I still don’t know exactly what he meant by this, but, to move things along, I replied “yes!” with enthusiasm.

He then proceeded to give me the most thorough haircut I’ve ever received. It went in forever. Other barbers went through 2 or 3 clients and he was still working on me.

I was worried for the result (I can’t see a thing without my glasses), especially when I realized, late in the game, that my barber was a barber-in-training.

But it worked out: his attention to detail paid off, and I’m happy with the result. I tipped him $5. I presume I now look like a man for the first time in my life.

If you want a novel haircutting experience, have some time to kill, and want to help a new guy out, drop by Ray’s Place and see the first fellow on the left.
