For the last nine months I have been growing out my hair.
It started when Melanie asked me to grow it out a little longer than my self-cut, No. 2 chop job. I liked my buzz cut. It was quick, easy, and zero-maintenance. However, after several of our friends had seen our wedding pictures and had commented about how young I looked and then asked how long we had been married (evidently expecting a response of "oh...about ten years"), I began to reconsider. Melanie heard this (and some comments that Aaron made) and decided I needed to grow my hair out longer. To be completely honest she has been dropping subtle and not-so-subtle hints that I should grow it out a bit for the last couple years. Little did she know she was about to open Pandora's Box. Now look at me...a mangy beast. She was right...growing my hair out has made me look a lot younger, and it has also resulted in a rather unexpected change of view...I really like my long hair. In fact, I love my long hair (and a lot of people have commented that it looks good). But like all good things, there must be an end. Now Melanie has begun to hint that it is time for a cut (or maybe just a trim). But instead of just getting it cut, I thought it would be fun to poll our readers (I know...a little vain). The ground rules are the following: Wife's vote = 5 points, Family votes = 2 points, Friend votes = 1 point
So here are the questions:
1. Should Paul cut his hair?
2. If YES, which style of short hair should he get?
The "Christian Bale": Yes, you say, I looked better with the buzz cut.
The "Mentalist": Melanie likes this one only because she likes the show...but honestly...I would look ridiculous with this.
The "Wolverine": Yup...the chops are part of the deal.
The "Jake Gyllenhaal": Melanie wishes I had the blue eyes to go with this one.
The "Two Face": I actually like this one but I think I look like a total goober with a part...you never know though...
3. If NO, which style of long hair should he go for?
The "Owen Wilson": Broken nose not included.
The "Jon Bon Jovi": This is actually kinda what I am sporting right now.
The "Soundgarden": I think I would need a perm to make this one work.
The "Alexander": Greasy...but I could do it. Melanie says the goatee is not a part of this one...I agree.
