My son’s haircuts are always a bit fraught. He loves buzz cuts and I agree. I like buzz cuts generally, but think they look especially good on my son. My husband, however, likes my son with long hair. It therefore irks him to spend money on cuts he dislikes.
Since I believe my son should like what he sees in the mirror, I took him off to Super Cuts today. The hair dresser and I were able to persuade my son that a high and tight wasn’t what he wanted. It was tough to convince him that, even with a jar head cut, his age would preclude anyone from mistaking him for a Marin. She assured him that level three on the clippers would be perfect, and she was right. My son looks handsome and adorable. My husband is resigned to a fait accompli.
