you went to a female that's why.
i did, she fucked it up,
dis needs to be on my head, how would you describe it?a fade? clipped to the skin on the sides, inch on top.
easiest thing to do is just show your barber a pic.
real talk it's hard to find a decent barber unless you're willing to pay...i have been all over the city looking for a cheap cut...the cheap ones ($10-15) would give me weird looks when i told them what i wanted, which by the way isn't unusual...my haircut is short to the skin on the sides then about 1.5 inches on the top, and i'll grow it out to about 2 inches before i get it cut again...so these people would argue with me, telling me it was too short on the sides, or there was some mistake and the barber last time didn't go shorter than a 1...so i would concede and get a haircut i was unhappy with, or they would concede and fuck it up anyway...not to mention i would get a different person every time because there's stigma about requesting people at cheap shops...
bottom line is now i go to a real man's barbershop...professionals....$35 for a cut, and i usually tip $5-8 depending on what i got in my wallet...so that's a lot...$40 every 6 weeks...WELL worth it...dude knows exactly what i want, is happy to please me and it looks a million times better than the $10 special...it's so worth it to have a haircut that looks great and grows in great...i'm not rolling the dice to save a buck...
