My Dad insists I look like a shaggy dog, and is going to take me to the barbers with him as soon as he can get the time. Maybe tomorrow!

Quite an event for me, as I've never had short hair.

Look at it this way. He is still the boss until you are out of the house. And this is a way for him to say "I love ya, Buddy" without actually saying it. When you obey his wishes, you're saying the same back to him.

Point taken.

In fact, none of us can forget he is in charge. I don't think I have much choice about the haircut anyway, so not much point in me posting this really!

But, yes, I do love and respect him.

Ah, it's only hair. It grows back pretty quick. I'm a female and even I don't get too upset about a bad haircut. It's very temporary. Get your haircut and maybe get some gel or some other 'goop' and you can spike it a little to make it a little more up to date. But there's nothing wrong with 'the clean cut' look, either. I guarantee you, it isn't gonna kill ya!

Yeah, maybe you're right. I've just had longish hair all my life, and I think this cut is going to be much shorter. Dad says I'm starting to look a mess, and a bit like a girl!

You'll see. It'll be okay. Will your Mother intervene on your behalf, maybe?

Personally, the best feeling haircut i've EVER had was a "high and tight" from some old barber guy who finished off the sides with a straight razor. It must've felt 10 degrees cooler when i walked out of that shop. I've had a braided ponytail, short hair, shaved-to-the-skin hair, etc.; it all grows back and gives you a chance for a better cut in a month or so.

Personally, i would go to HIS usual barber and instruct that barber to trim it up significantly but to my taste/instructions.

every young man should have a dam Marine Corps high and tight. There is no better haircut out there. I get one every other week.

My opinion is shave it all off. Start over.
