A new me
« on: April 20, 2013, 10:21:35 AM »
Since I recently was offered a job (Shift Manager at Arby's, I know, isn't it glorious?) that requires me to not have long hair, I got my hair chopped off today. I got two pony tails of considerable length out of it, which I will donate to Wigs for Kids. Nearly 8 years of hair is gone!

Here's the before:


And here is the after:

Someone very deserving will get some gorgeous golden locks.
Seriously though... What would happen if the Great Green Arkleseizure didn't fram up the rammastam before the hermite curve achieved maximum nurdfurdle velocity? Now THAT would be something. AmIrite?

Wow, that's quite a change! It brings your chin whiskers into focus more too. I think you look good, and congrats on the job!

How many of your friends are going to have to look at you twice (or more!) before they recognize you? 8 years is a lot of hair.

Sadly the whiskers have to go too :( I'm going to look like I'm 12. Thanks for the compliment though, I'm sure there will be at least a few double takes!

Shave. You'll look much more attractive, IMO. Although that may just be my "thing" for blondes with blue eyes talking.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Aww, that's too bad  :(

My hair is really long too, and through the winter, I generally leave it down. I had a co-worker who started to introduce herself to me the first time she saw me with it all pulled back and up, then recognized me just an instant too late to cover it. It was pretty funny.

I think it looks good with the beard, but I know the pain of chopping hair off. :( Before I went for my current job I had long hair as well and it was glorius, after a festival and apathy it got really matted (my hair is a pain to maintain, tangles really easily), so when it came to the job I was unable to save it and make myself look tidy. However, my boss is a metalhead and the big boss is a metalhead, which means it's easier to get away with growing my hair again - the fact I've not shaved for 4 months doesn't bother them either...sadly for me, '4 months' is probably about 2 weeks for normal people. Shame, because I would love a beard I could platt.

It was also painful when I had to chop off my dreads, I thought it would increase my chances of finding a job whilst I was at uni, but it didn't. ;)

Ah well, I am sure it's for the best and good luck with your new job. Also, love the taste in t-shirts, \m/ Emperor. ;)

I'm doing the opposite. Growing a complete beard and letting the hair go.  Back to the 70's.

When I saw your beautiful locks in the first photo, I braced myself as I scrolled down.  I love long hair.  Especially on men. 

But I've got to say, you look great with the short cut!  Some child undergoing chemo will look so beautiful in your beautiful hair. 

May I ask a question?  The "no long hair rule" associated with the Arby's position.  Does it apply to both men and women?  Or is it a double standard?

I will have to shave it off as well. I just couldn't bring myself to do it yet, I've had enough trauma for the day. I'll probably post a beardless pic tomorrow, and you can let me know!

Thanks! Hell yeah, I had to go with my Anthems shirt today. Just found a whole bunch of my shirts that were in storage. It was like Christmas.

I don't understand that rule.  In pics God (both of them) have long hair.  Oh well, I guess having a long blond hair in my French Dip might be kind of gross.

I love having long hair myself. I will definitely miss it.

Nope, only to men. Blatant, criminal, despicable discrimination if you ask me. Makes me wish I was a lawyer. But sadly I had little choice but to sacrifice my standards and awesomeness in order to make a little more money.

Lots of people give up more, for less  ;D ! I'm betting your awesome-ness level hasn't really depleted enough to notice.

Very curious to see the "real you" with no hair at all to hide behind tomorrow!

You're lucky, man. You'll still look like a proper man even without the metal hair on both your head and your chin.

Some of us were not blessed with the ability to grow such majestic facial hair. I, myself, am firmly in the slightly effeminate category. I even have an hourglass waist WITH a slender neck. Consider yourself lucky.

I've been growing my hair out since chemo, and love it. BUT, you look so awesome with your haircut, that I'm considering cutting mine short again. Before cancer, I'd grow it out, cut it and donate it, and then grow it out again. Now that I've lived through cancer, I thought, "damn it, I deserve to keep it!!!"  But I think I'm over that now. The thing about long hair, for me, is that the hair itself looks awesome. But sometimes a shorter cut is more flattering.

On the other hand, I would have thought the company could have been happy with your hair in a ponytail.

On the other, other hand, I do think you're more attractive with short hair, and will be even more so with a clean shaven face.

Just one woman's opinion ...  ;D

Still, my number one Metal hero[2] only seems to have gotten stonger since losing his own crest.
So, kaziglu bey, I'll mourn your shock of hair, applaud your attainment of that job and wish you many hours of happy, if hairless, headbanging. \m/

So how did the decision come up? Were you just going through a normal interview and then you screamed at the HR guy "I OFFER MY HAIR AS TRIBUTE TO THE METAL GODS!" and then he bowed down & gave you the job?
