In or around 1994, I had taken to cutting my own hair. It was rather
simple, as I had taken to wearing my hair quite short. I simply ran a razor
with a guard over my head. After a few passes, I was done, and I had
saved myself a few bucks. I enjoyed cutting my own hair, and it soon
became part of my Friday night ritual. Another part of this ritual
was the consuming of one or two 22 oz. Steinlagers. Usually, I did the
haircut first. Once I didn't. On this particular occasion, after
cleaning the guard about halfway through the job, I neglected to put it back
on, and promptly shaved a two-inch wide, five inch long swath down the
middle of my head.
I stared at this little mistake for about five-minutes. Oops.
I then decided that the only fix was to shave it all. Which I did.
Best move I ever made. It makes cycling, and
motorcycling much easier (no helmet hair). It's cool in the summer, and in the
winter I can wear hats without worrying about how my hair will look.
My girlfriend digs it. It looks REALLY cool with a henna "tattoo".
And I was going bald anyway.
My advice? Shave your head, and NEVER operate anything with a blade
