It has been a while since my last haircut and the last one I got was not particularly good. This morning I finally got a decent cut.

This is me before (actually a couple of days ago, originally posted on Twitter):


And here I am just a few minutes ago. The satisfied look on my face means I’m happy with the haircut.


Incidentally, like anything else, once I find something to put in my hair, I stick with it forever. It seems to me, however, that the stuff I find always gets discontinued. Thus, for years I’ve been using Redken’s “Rough Clay.” I’ve been out for some time and discovered today that it had been discontinued. It’s suggested replacement is called “Rough Paste” and I picked some up so we’ll see how that goes.
