The Do Is Done

Ok, I got the Do Done, pics will be forth coming this week once I decide if I really like it or not. Might need a bit of triming on the sides. I'm also still trying to decide to leave the facial hair or go clean shaven.

Anyway, I also went out and bought a bunch of new clothes with Amy's wonderful help. Still need shoes though.

And The Adventure Begins

I figure I might as well keep you all updated step by step. Feel free to encourage me. :)

I made an appointment at 3pm today with the owner (I think) of Hair Attractions for a consultation. The lady asked me what I wanted to consult about and I said 'My do', so I guess that was descriptive enough.

My thoughts here are to go in there and tell him that I only have a few constraints. First, I don't want it super short. Second, I want to keep the white streak going. And third, I don't want anything that is going to keep me in front of a mirror forever to get it working. Other than that, everything is free game including the facial hair.

Two hours until it starts.

Time For a Change

It's a New Year, as we all know. I've had the same look for, well shit, a decade or something. Although the white stripe has only been there for five years or so. In any case, it's not working for me anymore. Worked fine when I had a steady relationship and she liked it. Now I'm not so sure it's giving me any love anymore.

So what am I to do? This is TOTALLY new territory for me. I mean I've never really cared about my style or look or whatever beyond brushing my hair and making sure my stripe of white is hanging over one ear and not like a skunk stripe down the middle of my head. I started reading articles on and about men's style and fashion and I am totally overwhelmed. What the hell? They are talking about interviewing potential hairstylists...have any of you ever done that?

And the wardrobe and such...good god. How much work am I adding here.

Anyone out there have any advice?
