Checking with a ruler is tempting.  
I'm not sure about this, but I think the woman who cut my hair today must have been a WAC in the Korean War. I didn't ask for a "high and tight," nor did I specify military regs for the length of my hair. Nevertheless, this is what I got. My hair hasn't been this short since I was in AFROTC.

Ali is laughing at me. She and Lisa have both stated, "It'll grow back." This is cold comfort, especially since I don't really mind it. I was somewhat afraid of Ali's reaction, actually, and was hesitant to reveal the location of the "salon" for fear she'd visit them with a baseball bat.

It's not that bad. I do, however, look like a raw damn recruit whose momma made sure to stuff her boy full of baby fat for the DI to measure success against, and that's no lie.

I just got buzzed last Saturday, after waiting about three weeks too long. God, I feel so much better.

Preferably not, though it's probably unavoidable.

Well, it *will* grow back, unless you visit the WAC salonist again in the near future... ;)

Having had some astoundingly bad haircuts in my day, I only say 'it will grow' with sympathy and experience. I'm glad to hear you don't really mind it, though.

*salutes you* ;)

i'm surprised nobody has mentioned how nice it feels when you run the palm of your hand over a freshly buzz-cut head of hair ;-)

(incidentally, when i was a freshman in college, i inadvertently got a very, very short pixie cut which, when tested, passed a haircut inspection for men's ROTC. that's why i let it grow out and have never had it cut since.)

heh. ::picturing you with a buzz cut:: That's just terrible... you must find a local email group or some such venue where you can warn others about this heinous woman!! ::snicker:: Guess you won't be going there again!!!

I don't think Ali would let me go back, no. Then again, she's been snickering about my hair since she saw it, so she might make me go back once a year just for the laugh value.

Noooooo, Ali? OTOH that stylist better watch out!! Who knows what might happen. ::grin::
