Hmm, yes, haircuts. I never really thought much about the view in the mirrors I have to admit. I think I was just satisfied that the general shape was acceptable. My wife has cut my hair for many years now and what little I have left I generally keep short and grey.
There was a time in my twenties when my brother-in-law talked me into going to one of the then, new, Unisex hairdressers and although I couldn’t see much detail, I could tell by the shape of the finished style in the mirror that I was in trouble (Elvis Presley/Danny La Rue) but I was too embarrassed to say anything. My wife and a couple of my friends fell about laughing when they saw me. I ended up the same day in my regular barbers and had a short back and sides.
I suppose you could bite the bullet and ask to sit closer to the mirror or maybe take a small hand mirror with you. Best answer has to be yours James, go to the same hairdresser every time so you know roughly what you’ll get.
This has to be a question more for the ladies I would have thought, judging by the importance my wife and daughter place on their hairstyles.
Giving up smoking, drinking, and eating all those fatty foods doesn’t actually make you live longer – it just feels like it.
