The haircut

Dec 20, 2007

Yup. I finally did it! After nearly 20 years on having long hair and almost 15 years with a beard, I decided to go the the opposite

extreme on my 33 birthday. It feels liberating!

To catch a couple of questions up front:

  • Yes, I am donating my hair to Locks of Love.
  • Yes, I will grow back the beard in a month after I’ve enjoyed the shock value of not having it.
  • No, I’m not sure if I’ll let my hair grow long again. it’s just getting too thin up there.
  • No, my 4-month-old son and dog didn’t notice a thing.
  • Yes, I recorded video. Enjoy!

The video is 20 minutes long so feel free to fast forward. Also, here are some pictures that the wife took.
