The Haircut

Yes it's true...after going the end of 2006, all of 2007, and the beginning of 2008, I finally caved...a few weeks ago...I got a haircut!!! Webster called and wants to use me for yet another definition. Some new word called "Sexgod" :) Before I dive into my rant however, allow me to provide visuals:

Clean Cut circa 2006: "GQ Arun"

Long Hair circa early 2008: "Rugged and Disheveled Arun"

Shaggy and Unkept: "Cave Man Arun"

Styled up circa 2 weeks ago: "Sex-Symbol Arun"

Will I go back to the long hair? Probably not. It's too much hassle to take care of. I wanted to grow it out though at least once. Almost every guy I know has wanted to grow their hair out, but no one, including me, is ever patient enough! I made two previous attempts at growing long hair, but I just couldn't make it through the "shaggy" stage.

Interestingly, I found out I have curly hair. All of my guy friends had been harassing me for MONTHS to cut it. Luckily, the only people who's opinion I truly valued in this mattered supported my hair growth...GIRLS! :) I'd say about 80% of the girls I asked said they liked the long hair, the most important of which was my Grammy who said I looked, "beautiful" (I LOVE my Grandma! :)

But alas, even I knew it was time to go with a new look after I saw the "Cave Man."

For weeks I couldn't work up the nerve to call and make an appointment. When you haven't cut your hair for a year and a half, you feel like you've invested a lot, and it's hard to let go! Finally, one day after shopping at Whole Foods, I sucked it up and went to the upscale hair salon next door to make an appointment(I decided after not cutting my hair for so long, I'd splurge on a designer hair stylist).

Lucky enough, my hairstylist ended up being a young, trendy, good-looking girl. This was important because I had no plan going in, and was in need of advice. When she asked me what I wanted, I simply looked at her and said, "I have no clue. Make me look amazing! I'll be the clay and you can be Michelangelo." I figured if SHE thinks my new doo is hot, then OTHER young, trendy, and good-looking girls will think the same...brilliant plan, I know :)

Thus was born the new, suave, Superstar-Arun pictured above! I've come out of my cave, and am coming to a coupon clipper magazine near you!
