Bad haircut

So today I did something risky, I got a haircut in a country where I don't speak the language. I had the hotel book me an appointment( aparantly this reduced the charge by 60 euros to a measly 19 euros for the head stylist), and I intrepidly jumped in a cab to see what the damage could be. When I got there, to my relief, there was a (very attractive)british shampoo girl who says she will give my request to the stylist. What I did not even consider at this point was that her italian might be as bad as mine is. Instead of my hair being a little longer in the front, it's a little longer in the middle. That's right boys and girls, Harsh is now sporting the silliest of haircuts since the mullet, the faux-hawk. This is not a full fledged faux hawk either, this is sort of a toned-down-for-the-office version that would inspire disdain from any buddy holly bespectacled barrista even in Palo Alto.

There is an obvious silver lining here that you may have overlooked. With this new haircut, you can finally live out all of your most villainous desires as your own evil twin. I'll let you come up with a creative name for him. To ensure that none of your co-workers catch on and discover your evil twin's true identity, you may want to wear a hat at the villa. Just kidding.

No problem homey. That is an awesome haircut for the Olde Worlde.

Funny thing, I've decided to sport it as-is for a while, in away it's the bar equivalent of running with ankle weights.

look on the bright side dude...you're in rome, be yourself and i'm sure no one will hold the bad haircut against you. besides, now you're a litttttt-el taller.

take care.

Hopefully that's how all the men in Rome are wearing their hair these days, anyone who thinks it looks odd just missed the memo.

Wow Harsh, I thought you were pretty damn cute before but this haircut just brings out a hotness I've never seen before. I'd so do you if you were in the US right now. Hell...I'm buying a ticket to Italy! Expedia.com here I come..

Problems with above entry

1) As metro as European men are, I highly doubt the 'faux hawk' is the default style in all barber shops. Come on. You've wanted one for years.

2)"That's right boys and girls". Let's be straight (or not). You've never spoken to a woman.

3) While the 'faux hawk' might not work in Palo Alto, just hop over the Golden Gate bridge and you will be the most popular manwich in the Castro district. Whoops! Too Late!

4) Third Person? Anonymous says this is too much for him. Toodle-oo.

It takes a lot of faith to get a haircut like that. Passion too.

Everytime I look at this picture I start laughing .. so hard that I people from other cubes come by to see why. And well, I've got quite a crowd here now.. none of us can believe the.. er (I HAD TO!!) "cut-rate" job. Oh well it's only hair and it will grow out. But the expression on your face is also priceless. Maybe it's some sort of Italian revenge.(?)
