I did it! I finally parted ways with my old hair style (all puns fully intended). I used to, forever and day, have very long hair, most often to my shoulders. However, after getting sick and tired of all of the maintenance—and I am sure that most girls out there can agree with me here, or men who have longer hair—I was burned out on always having to manage my thick locks. There are just so many different things that you have to do in order to really take care of long hair.
Now mind you, I did take excellent care of my hair. And having four brothers with male pattern baldness in the family, one could easily deduce that I did indeed dodge the hereditary genetics bullet. But, once you get tired of always having hair in your face, sweating profusely on hot summer days (especially in Arizona where I live, where it easily tops triple digits several months out of the year), and then spending hundreds of smackers at salons to get it cut, styled and colored—well, sufficed to say that short hair has welcomed me back into its loving arms.
In case you are wondering, I used to have hair that went past my shoulders. The climb up the ladder to the short hair that I sport now was a lengthy process that spanned several years. Over the past five years, or so, I have been going a little bit shorter each year. The other day, however, I decided that I had enough, and it was time to take the sheers to my head and get to cutting. From the very moment I left that hair salon, sexy women were looking my way; a lot more so than usual.
Could it be the new hair style I am sporting? I think so, my friends. Then, to confirm my suspicions, my sister and mother met up with me for lunch, and they would not stop yapping about how handsome I look. Now, I have updated my online dating profile with my new, shorter hair style look, and voila: I am getting bombarded with emails from very attractive women looking to go on dates with me. (That simply put: Rocks!)
I wish I had known that dating tip a while back. But knowing is half the battle (I know: GI JOE!). However, the lesson has been learned for me. Shorter hair is the best look for my melon, and I intend to keep it that way. Now if I could only get free premium cable channels, I think I would be on to something truly grand!
