Solving my hair frustration

Not having had a haircut since May, and with no reliable hairdressers to hand, I’d been suffering barnet-based ennui of late.

Then I did this.RedHead

It worked, I’d say.

    I think now would be a good time to shave your head.

    Should have done your eyebrows, too.

    All you need is a red and white striped shirt.

    I love it. i used to color my hair all the time. I once had it smurf blue, I looked like a Truffala Tree.

    I feel like I’m missing some key reference.

    Alex, I was maybe thinking the reference was Where’s Waldo, but his hair looks brown to me.

    Completely disregarding the hair color, your expression and glasses sort of remind me of Mark Motherbaugh circa 1980s.

    Also, regardless of color, I just plain like what your hair does.

    I’ve learned to make peace with it; it does what it wants.

    I think you could hire at one of the big fast-food franchises…

    Going by color alone, this somehow strongly reminds me of the beloved bavarian cobold “Pumuckl”

    Leider kannte ich Pumuckl vorher nicht! (Das hätte ich vielleicht mal sollen, ich war nämlich Germanistikstudent an der Uni und einer meiner Hauptdozenten kam aus Bayern.) Freilich sieht er mir ähnlich aus. ^^

    Ach, das ist ja keine Schande (wie Pumuckl auszusehen) :)

    Anyhew, it does look impressive. I’ve never dared to dye anything but black myself. So how are the reactions from fellow offline humans?

    Oh, I don’t talk to people IRL.

    I don’t talk to people IRL.

    More like they don’t talk back, being struck mute either in horror, with admiration, or by an overloading of crazily oscillating synapses.

    Was the alternative of a paper bag with two holes punched in it for the eyes considered?

    The woes of being a language student. You study and study and study, you learn 500.000 words and cultivate a damn posh accent and then you notice that people still talk a different language because you don’t get all those references to childhood characters and things everybody who grew up in that culture easily get.
    A new world opened for me when I finally found Mother Goose rhymes.

    Your hair is…interesting. (He says as he lays out a three piece suit and selects a tie to wear to work tomorrow.)

    Eh, mine too, just nothing remotely as cool.
