The right sider of my noggin - so wrong - too much hair - uneven

Last week I got a haircut.  

Last week I got a bad haircut.

I didn't realize it until I got home and washed my hair.

The right side of my head has about three inches more hair than the left side.  What could my barber be thinking?  What was I thinking?  Do I have to check my haircut every time I leave?  Apparently I do.

I've been using the same barber for about four years.  He is an old Italian barber.  Most of my life I've been using Italian barbers.  They are a dying breed.  I don't go to stylists.  I don't need to pay a woman $45 to wash my hair and give it a half assed trim and then need a haircut again the next week.  I did that once.  All I got was the boobs hanging in my face when she washed my hair.

No, I'll take the manly haircuts that the old Italian barbers serve up.  As I said, they are literally a dying breed.  I'm hoping my 80 year old barber Dino outlives me because if he doesn't, I'm screwed.  

I've had women cut my hair.  I never got a good butch haircut from a woman.  I'm not being sexiest here, I just never, never have gotten a good haircut from a woman.  

I don't know what was on Dino's mind last week but this lopsided haircut just won't do.  I was going to wait out my haircut and live it until I go back to him for my regular six week haircut.  I can't do it though.  I'm waking up in the morning with a hair drift on the right side of my head.  I look like a dark haired Conan O'Brien.

The left side of Noggin Ron - the way it should be - I'm lopsided
Nope, tomorrow I get this fixed.

A new cool hair style I think.

I looked at the opening picture and thought you got yourself a toupee. I also found it funny because I just started writing a new post today that the first picture featured our hair.

That's one way of looking at it Vurong!

Are you saying my hair looks like toupee? Wow! Now I know I have to get it cut short if it looks like a RUG!

I have similar issues and have been trying to draft a blog post for several weeks now addressing it. I was embarrassed because I thought I was the only one who had barber issues. After reading your post I now have the courage to come out of the bad haircut closet.

First thing this morning I went to the barber. He fixed it. Wasn't too happy but hey. Then when I came back home I watched President Obama sign into law the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell. Is this a good day or what? Have a great day!

Ron, thankfully I've had a good stylist for the last fifteen years. I had a horrible time with barbers all my life; my hair has a natural curl they don't know hoe to deal with.

$45 is ridiculous for a stylist; Deanna changes me $18, plus I give her a generous tip. That's for a pre-wash(to get the product out of my hair),cut, and after rinse if I want it.

Keep looking for someone better than the person you have.I'm sure you ca find better.
