Seriously Shaggy8:41 PM
Sooo, Monday night was pretty interesting. As you all know, it has been hot and humid in the Mitten-State and Kyle has been sporting the shaggy look for awhile. Well as you can only imagine, shaggy hair and heat do not mix very well at all and Kyle has been wanting a haircut very badly. Instead of just going to a barber or a salon like a normal human being, Kyle insisted that I cut his hair. I attempted to cut his hair before but I ended up making it very uneven and there were even spots where it looked like he was bald. Not good.
As you can see, he was not happy with that mop on his head and even though I was pretty nervous about using those clippers, I caved. I decided that I would first go online and look for a decent short haircut for a guy. You see, I am a HUGE fan of the long hair. I don't understand why guys just don't embrace it, but I guess it has something to do with it being in your face and bothersome (hello ponytail) but, I digress. Of course while researching hot short-haired guys, Rivers Cuomo popped into my head. If you are a new reader, I shall have to explain that my favorite band is Weezer and I am in love with Rivers Cuomo, the lead singer.
So what do I do? I Google "Rivers Cuomo Hair" and of course this is what shows up. No, not a decent picture of him with his nice short locks but THIS:
Completely not fair. I mean, Rivers is my biggest celebrity crush and he has to go around having pictures taken of him with long hair and eyes that look like they can reach into your soul? So of course I showed this to Kyle, who by the way did not have the same eye-soul reaction that I did, and he just said "No". So, after much more research and Rivers ogling, I came across one that Kyle actually liked.
Much more on Kyle's page. After the imagery was finalized, I made Kyle plop down in the middle of the kitchen and I starting clipping his long hair. It was quite sad at first, but Kyle was already starting to feel better so I sucked it up and kept cutting. I managed to cut about 98% of his hair with just the scissors and not the clippers! I even trimmed his sideburns-which Kyle was freakishly nervous about-with scissors and the clippers.
Look at that mess! He also looks like a creeper with that goatee so I told him to go shower off so we could work on the finishing touches. Thankfully he decided to shave his facial hair, which made everything easier when I went back for some final trimming. I think in the end, it came out a little shorter than I had hoped but I think that he results were pretty good! Especially since I had no idea what I was doing.
