going to get my hair cut has always been a pain in the ass thing for me, mainly because I never really liked a lot of the hair cuts I kept getting. and I don’t have the ideal head to pull off the simple buzz cut and so more often then not, I’d leave the salon with a tinge of this dissatisfied feeling.
Ever since I found Jay Park (the korean pop singer) few months back, I fell in love with his hair cut, and I must of went to the salon like 4 times the past 4-5 months but no one could quite get it right. But finally just few days ago, this lady at the salon nailed it after showing her the picture of Jay Park’s haircut on the iPhone. I never left the salon feeling so happy with the haircut. and I love it.
It was great seeing that I can pull this hair cut off and that there is a hair cut that looks great on me, and I can go back to the same lady so I can get the haircut again.
This is generally what the hair cut is. Long on top, very short on the side, and long buzz cut at the back, almost mohawk ish. So like a 1 on the sides that fades as it goes up to the top of the crown to the long haircut at top. And like a 3 at the back of the head. The 1 on the side blends to the 3 at the back in a fading manner.
EDIT a year later: I still get this hair cut cause it’s just the one I like best. But now I get the 1 on the side and also at the bottom of the back of the head, so the 1 goes around the head but just the bottom. Still the 3 towards the top of the back of skull.
Its a haircut that fits my head shape and it looks cool as hell too. there was a big ass techno concert this weekend called DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival) where I danced my ass off and I gotta say girls seem to love the hair as well…
ps. this is the pic i brought to the salon. (it started with 1 on the side and 3 or 4 on the back, but it “tapers” or fades from 1 to 3 gradually…)
