My New Home Haircut Is Growing On Me (Ba Da Bum)

It is a well-known fact that I cut my own hair. Another well-known fact is that I don't always do the absolutely best possible job of it.

It had been about three or four months since I last cut my hair, so I gave it another go this morning, and damn if I didn't put the wrong attachment on the clippers and go just a tad too short. And by a "tad too short" I mean that I cut it into within an inch of its life. And by "within an inch of its life" I mean that I literally cut my hair down to less than an inch long.

So, here it is in all its minimalist glory with not even a stitch of hair dye to downplay the grey.

I'm calling this a happy accident.

You'd better act like you like it, too, because it is also a well-known fact that I don't take criticism of my hair very well.
