Before the Haircut

There was a time when I would always post a photo here after I got a haircut. I’ve long stopped doing that — it did feel rather silly — and so here’s a pic of me just before the scissors hit the hair. I didn’t get anything drastic, just a “refresh” — I have a two-block-like cut, so the sides definitely needed to be shaved down again. And yes, I always bring my iPad with me, to read magazines and comics — I do chat a bit with the hair stylist, who I’ve been using exclusively (I always make an appointment with him) for years now. I don’t go to a pricey place or anything though, it’s just the Di Moda Japan chain, and the cut itself is usually around 3500 yen.
