IO: my hair ...

... looks fucking awesome today. if i had a digi, i'd take a picture and show everyone. but i don't, so i'll just have to describe it to you. it's spikey, a bit, and chunky and asymmetrical, but not in an obnoxious way that says, "i was trying really hard to look artsy and i really wish i lived in willimsburg, brooklyn, and you'd think that i'm so poor and authentic that i can't even afford real haircuts so i cut my hair all by myself in my apartment one rainy friday night by candlelight with my grandmother's old scissors as i drank cheap read wine and listened to Edith Piaf, though the reality is i spent $75 to have it cut by the guy who i heard cuts Alexa Joel's hair, and she's the daughter of a celebrity, and i even heard that Kyan of Queer Eye used to work in that particular salon. if i thought further, i think i'd be overwhelmed by the irony of spending more to look like you spent less ... "

it's also light, but textured, but not heavy or clumpy. much of it has to do with the weather (gorgeous, no humidity), the fact that it's friday, i've learned how to muss it up precisely right -- once the hair is very nearly dry, you emulsify the product in your hands and then, with alternating strokes, push the product



through your hair from side to side, pushing it all into a bit of a faux-hawk,

,

but far, far, far more subtle than that, then stop, assess the situation, make sure the front is up and standing but not up so much that it looks like an LCD screen like all the straight guys do.

then, the key is restraint. it will dry, and dry in a more natural fashion than if you try to shape it into precisely what you have in mind. you'll end up with a helmet, not a hairstyle. let nature take its course, and remember that your hairstyle is supposed to evolve and shift and change and age and ripen and mature through the day -- like a fine wine. your hair should look much diffrently at 8pm than it did at 8am.

and if you're lucky, and the date goes well, your hair will be completely messed up by 12am that night. then, after the post-coital shower, you get to start all over again.

This made me laugh out loud because I had friends in Williamsburg when we lived in NYC (Borough Park), and coming from an Orthodox background, what the "Williamsburg look" means to me is the black hat and sideburns. Frumkeit yes, fabkeit nyet. So, right now I'm picturing your previous avatar with that funky shtetl-mensch look. Hmmm....

I'm currently on a medication which has made most of my hair fall out, so I've resorted to headgear to cover it up. I think I'm going to take a cue from you and start telling people I'm going for that evocative Ba'al Shem Tov look.

As we used to joke back in Mississippi, "Next year in Brooklyn!"

Awww... don't feel bad.

I have this curly disaster on my head. I learned many decades ago that gels, sprays and conditioners are needed - daily. Leave-in conditioners used to prevent mega-frizz. Sprays are used to prevent me looking like Don King due to a sudden wind gust.




I know, scary ain't it?!

have you been to williamsburg recently? it must be the most aggressively hip neighborhood in the united states.

interestingly, i have roots in williamsburg as well. when my great-grandmother immigrated from Ireland in the early 20th century, she settled in williamsburg and worked as a laundress.

if your hair is falling out, i say embrace it and just shave the whole thing. the bald look is sleek and sexy

no comb-overs!
