If there’s one thing I have a commitment to besides helping people through social media, it’s my hair. Axe hair products even dubbed me an “Axe Game Changer”, garnishing me with assorted prizes and free Axe shampoo and conditioner for at least a year. My hair is a source of pride for me: I wore the “messy” look before it was popular, I’ve been related to or been personal friends with over a dozen stylists in my life, and it still takes me 3 combs to style my 1/2″ long hair each morning. This is why AirCut is a great place for me to work: I know social media, and I know men’s hair. As much as a straight guy should.
I take issue with the latest craze that men seem to be adopting called the “faux-hawk”. It’s true that celebrities like David Beckham (see attached) sport this cut on occasion, and Beckham actually makes it look decent, but most of us don’t have David Beckham’s looks to go with it. Thus begins the era of people trying to sport celebrity cuts when they don’t have the tools or the time. I also think there’s something about the faux-hawk that screams “commitment-phobe”. Ladies, maybe I am wrong about this, (and I welcome your comments) but it’s kind of like saying “I don’t want to commit to the mohawk because I’m not that awesome, but I can gel my hair and smoosh it together just for today.” This should be a red flag to women to stay away. If he can’t commit to a hairstyle, how can he commit to you? Find a guy with normal hair, or find a guy with a mohawk. Show those faux-hawk wannabe’s you’re looking for the real thing.
Guys, if your hair is too much work and you want less maintenance, do remember that the Social Media Brat is here for you. Every two or three times you shave, grab the AirCut and keep your hair trimmed, too. Also remember, I don’t sit here and push people to buy or product and run to a professional stylist. I use the AirCut, and you know how I feel about my hair.
