Title: It's time
Post by: IslandPiper on February 16, 2017, 01:46:01 PM
Just joined the site, and posted my introduction.  Here's the current situation on top of my head.  I usually keep it pretty short, so this is on the long side for me.  For the record, back in the day, I had hair down to my stomach.  Being in a band, I'm kinda mindful about my appearance, and hair was always a big deal back in my metal days.  Anyway, here I am.

Welcome to the group!

Just like there were/are many long haired musicians there are plenty of sly/buzzed musicians as well. I'm sure you will rock the look if/when you do it (no pun intended)

Thanks!  Well, the plan is to do it tomorrow morning.  I'm going to let my regular barber take care of the initial shave.  Then it's off to play some shows this weekend!

The deed is done.  I should have done this years ago.  Had the barber do it Friday, and as soon as I walked outside, I was already hooked.  Here are a couple 'after' pics.

Wow!  You look a lot better.  But most guys have the same reaction "I should have done this years ago."

Wow.  What a positive change.  No wonder you thought 'why didn't I do this sooner'.

Some people I can never picture with hair; you're one of them.  Definitely a natural!  Congrats!

Wow!  You look 10 times better now than before, imo.  Now you'll need to find the right routine of keeping it shaved that works for you.
