Time and time/time after time

Found an old driver’s license when I was cleaning out the remains of the computer room. Between it and a glance of myself in the mirror, I realize that it’s getting on toward time to do something about my hair. As in :

And now, back to cleaning out the dining room….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    No, seriously… you need to do whatever YOU will feel most comfortable with. Jason thought of going the Rogaine route but could not handle the thought of having to apply this stuff to his head twice a day, every day, for the rest of his life. So he buzzed it, liked the shape of his head (not all people have a good noggin shape for the full shave) and shaved it off. Drue liked it and I hated it until he grew in a goatee. Every guy I’ve ever seen going the no hair route needs facial hair to balance it out. Once he had the goatee it looked great.

    Or you could just ask your wife. Wives always have firm opinions on these matters and it’s good to get their input first. It keeps hubbies out of the proverbial dog house. ;)

    She has expressed no firm opinion, so I’m on my own here.

    And there’s no way I’m going without facial hair…

    i gotta agree with in the whole “do what feels best to you” route…

    and, i probably ought to admit, the latter route “ask the wife” probably has a lot of merit, too…

    but yeah… do what works for you… and that’s not to say that you’re stuck with that forever… i mean, yeah, it *is* tough to grow it back out after you buzz it off or bic it all the way down, but it *does* grow back, and it’s not like you’re having to go back to the “halfway down your back” days, either…

    Oh, she’ll do what I did then and express a firm opinion AFTER you have buzzed/shaved/combed over/applied the Rogaine! :P I don’t know why we do this other than we are women and just DO! ;)

    Actually, she might not. That may just be a “jeri” thing. :X

    Technicolor it once while you have it, then kill it off totally to see how you like the effect (Mach 3 razors are the shiznit), then a simple buzz for day-to-day, since shaving is harsh and sunburn-prone.

  6. detritus says:

    I went the ‘buzz it way down’ route. And keep the facial hair, i had a goatee trimming accident one evening and shaved the whole thing off to recover.

    Damn, that was a long week with a naked face.

    The Headblade is the perfect tool for the job, especially the maintenance.

  8. bitslapper says:

    from personal experience, the headblade really wasn’t all that and a bag of chips… it clogged *very* quickly, and wouldn’t fit many blades which might’ve kept a little cleaner… but of course, it’s possible that was just due to my hair… ymmv

    I got an Andis Headliner which is a dry shaver that sells into the market for individuals prone to razor bumps. Granted, the box, instructions, and examples in the pictures are examples look nothing like me *grin* but it gives me a very nice effect and takes only one pass for a perfect trim to the scalp.

    I really really like the Andis for quickie shaves. Then I can do a pass with a proper razor if need be.
