15″ off the back. 10.5″ off the top. A return to “business professional”.

Well, it’s the end of an era for me.

I’ve had a short “business professional” haircut most of my life, but I was always curious what I would look like with long hair.

So, for the last 5 years, I let my hair grow.

I wanted to do this while I was somewhat young and before I could be accused of “old man trying too hard”.

Needless to say the experiment was… interesting.

Anyhow, yesterday was the “finale”. The literal cut-off time. My gorgeous wife (who can do everything!) started by cutting 15 inches off the back in one snip and 10.5 inches off the top in the second snip. Almost an hour later, she trimmed me back to my original “business professional” cut.

It was fun while it lasted!

Proof! The back (twisted into a ponytail for easier slicing)!

And the top!
