I needed a haircut. And because it was long & bizarre, I hacked off a bunch this morning before going to a barbershop. It had been long in the front, & short in the back, but had since grown out of control everywhere. So I cut off a bit up top, so that I could instruct the barber to simply even it out, leaving it longish in the back, but shortish in the front.
Me: Don't cut it too short, just even it out. Can you leave it longer in the back, don't cut too much, but even it out shorter in the front.Girl: You cut hair yourself?Me: Just a little this morning, to make it easier for you.Girl: It's uneven.Me: You know, you know what a mullet is?Girl: Yes, a mullet, yes. How long you cut hair yourself?Me: I don't usually. Just a little this morning, because it was really long & wild. A mullet, you know, like, "business in the front / party in the back"?[...later...]Girl: I can cut more in the back.Me: No, leave it longer in the back.Girl: It's uneven between top & back.Me: I want it longer in the back.Girl: How long you cut hair yourself?Me: I only cut off a little of the long hair in the front.Girl: It's uneven. I cut more in the back.Me: Don't cut off too much in the back, just leave it medium-length if you can. Like a mullet.Girl: Don't cut your hair yourself.
