Maybe I Should Just Buy Some Clippers

Filed under: Personal — by teofilo @ 8:02 pm

Why is it that hairdressers seem to have such a hard time understanding that when I say I want my hair cut down to half an inch all around that means I actually don’t want to leave two inches on top?



  1. Hairdressers have their own way of judging how much hair to cut. If you tell them to cut half and inch all around, this means short. If you ask them to cut to 2 inches long, this mean medium-short. There’s never an exact measure for them — everything is subjective and arbitrary and all things can be amended as long as there’s still enough hair to make to the hairstyle corrections. Sometimes I think that it’s because of the blazing loud electric razor that’s caused them to lose a spectrum of their hearing. lol

  2. Is that a particularly topical comment spam? Weird.

    Oh, and I recommend the clippers as long as you’re okay with a few weeks of extra-short hair. And you have someone to do the back for you.

  3. It’s weird; it initially went into the spam folder, but when I looked at it it turned out to be totally relevant and topical, so I approved it.

    And yeah, extra-short hair is really what I’m going for. Good call on having someone else do the back. It turns out clippers are a lot cheaper than I had thought, so I think I’ll go ahead and get some.
