I've got less hair on my head than ever before, but I see my barber twice as often. When I had a full head of hair I'd visit the barber once every six weeks or so. Now that male pattern baldness has reared my ugly head, I've got to see him every three weeks in order to look presentable. Funny how the price for the haircut hasn't reduced by the same exponent.

Hmm

You could just get a pair of hair-clippers and do it yourself. Biggrin

Well, like an old badger brush I shed a few hairs at every washing and combing, but nothing where you can really tell.  I use to get a haircut every two weeks when I was younger.  If hair even thought about touching my ears I was in the barbershop.  Now I just don't seem to care.  It's been two months since I last visited the lady that cuts my hair and it might be another two months before she sees me.  If the mood strikes I will go, if not I won't.

My hair is considerably longer than in my avatar picture which was taken last July.

The barber has no way to measure how many strands of hair he is cutting.

There does seem to be more hair on the shower drain the older I get. However, I wouldn't miss my every six week appointment with Lisa, as she also gives the best 5" head and neck message imaginable.

I've been cutting my hair for about 15 years, after my old school $5 barber retired. It was tricky at first but I've gotten pretty good at it.
Anyway I used to cut it once a month, now I find I need to do it every 2 weeks.

I perform this task twice a week, so I guess I save a few dollars! Nonetheless, I really miss going to the barber and having a good chat with the men in the shop. There is a great one where I take my son to and I really like frequenting it as it has a great atmosphere.

If I had a REAL barber in town I would visit every two weeks again.

I was one at one time in my life.  Wife says I am no longer hip.

I gotta laugh out of that Biggrin ! In 2000, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young were doing their CSNY2K tour. Mrs. chazt and i were standing outside madison square garden waiting for our friends to arrive. As im standing there im looking around saying, "damn, look how old everbody is!" G doesn't miss a beat and says, "have you looked in the mirror lately?" Talk about a reality check!

Our daughters and their friends are now the hip, right on, together and what's happening 20 somethings. When did this happen?!?

It has not happened.  They are posers.  Until my kids can attend a Woodstock like I did, they are not what's happening.  My son is the drummer for this great 9 piece band in Austin and guess what kind of music they are playing, my generation, that's what.  We are still the hip ones.  I just cannot shake my booty like I use to. Smile

No doubt the best music spanning half a century.  I'd love to hear your stories of Woodstock someday, man.   Cool

I say there are 2 choices. I still have mine but keep it buzzed and sometimes shaved. You can always do that or just do like my grandfather. Let one side grow long and just brush it over. I always smile when he wakes up from a nap on the couch and it sticks straight up like a rooster.  Smile

Yes, it was! Up until that point, for the previous 25 years I'd seen almost all the various combinations and permutations of all 4 artists, including solo. However 2000 was the first time I saw them all on the same stage at the same time. It was a Big thrill for me!!
