What should I do with my hair?

Posted in Adam by Adam Westbrook on October 12, 2008

My bonce has always been a nightmare. It’s basically like a thick wooly carpet on my head that refuses to be controlled. And it grows faster than bamboo.(*)

For the last few years all I’ve been able to do with it is shave it all off (fig.1). After all it’s cheaper and saves faffing around with the gel and all that.

But over the fews months I’ve let it grow out, well, just for the hell of it. But it’s left me with a dilemma (fig. 2)

I was at a wedding this weekend, and most people mentioned my hair at least once. When it’s short I get called either a holocaust survivor, or a cancer patient. And when it’s long I get called – most hurtfully – “Microphone Head”.

I can’t decide what to do with it. So I’m going to let all you lot make the decision for me. Whether you know me, just peruse this blog occassionally, or found it by accident, take a look at the 2 snaps and leave a comment, with your follical advice.

And if any professional hairdressers come across this then for the love of god write something!

(*) amazing fact about bamboo: it is the world’s fastest growing type of grass.
