If you knew me or have seen me around, you would have noticed my hair was thinning (although it is hard for most people to see because I’m 6’5″ – rather tall).
It was becoming a bit of a comb-over to be honest.
You can see the tragedy that was my hair in these pics:
In Cameron Feb 2009.
Hennessy Artistry June 2008.
It was bad even way back in 2004.
It was starting to get PRETTY thin on top.
I finally listened to everyone, and decided to shave it all off. Get rid of the security blanket so to speak, it turned out to be a liberating experience. I had some Wahl hair clippers I bought from Argos in UK last year.
I got home one night and I decided, ok I’m just going to do it!
I grabbed the clippers and started shaving, I started about grade 7 and gradually got shorter.
I looked like this half way thru, kinda scary eh.
I kept hacking away.
I eventually got down to about grade 3, which I did the whole thing with.
There was a LOT of hair.
And well that was that, my hair was GONE! I went to the barber a while later and got it tidied up (grade 3 still). It so much lower maintenance now, don’t have to worry about my hair ‘style’ when I wake up or before I’m going out to an event or something.
Save money on shampoo too!
I stopped shaving my face that day too to experiment with some facial hair (May 2009), and I started getting it shaved at grade 1 (very close shave).
This was my new look and beard in June 2009.
The beard grew considerably, and has changed again. Will blog about that soon!
