Trying Something New

I’ve had the same haircut for the most part of the last 20 years. Basically, Just a high fade, no guard on the sides and back and a three guard on the top. I was a low maintenance style that I never had to worry about.

Well, I’m trying something new. For really the first time since I was 12, I’m attempting to grow my hair out, at least on top. This isn’t a coronavirus quarantine thing, it’s fully intentional. I’ve liked the style on others, so I’ve leaned on the advice of my current girlfriend1 who’s a hair stylist, and I am attempting to do this the right way.

So far, I like what I’m seeing. My goal is to grow this out long enough to lay back, but even now I’m pleased with it. I’ve been graying over the last few years, but I’m embracing it for the most part. I’ve never been interested in dying my hair, so it is what it is. Let’s see where this goes.


  1. Yeah, I have one of those now. Been going since mid-January. Just not wanting to be that person that annoys people about their significant other. Let’s see who reads my shit, right? But, her name is Tracy and she’s pretty cool. [return]
