My dad always had a burr haircut. During my teenage years, I remember saying to myself that I’d never have my hair that short.
Well, times change.
At age 56, I’ve turned into my dad.
Last Friday, I walked into 43rd Ave Barber and asked them to give me a buzz cut. Cheryl Hollers reached for her clippers and got to work.
I’ve been contemplating a buzz cut for years. The reason being, my receding hairline makes me look practically bald already.
I don’t know how long I’ll keep my hair this short. It may be temporary … or it may be permanent. Either way, I wanted to try it.
I will say this: It’s been really strange looking into a mirror the past few days.
