Haircuts are the new awesome

you guys may not have known it, but betsy is just about a professional haircutter. i mean, she has cut her own hair.

And Cameron's.


And Honkey Magoo's.


So that is why she had the pedigree to cut this guy's hair:

Right before the haircut, a homeless crazy man had declared that aaron was both tall and handsome (which probably had a lot to do with his hair) so it was a little bit of pressure. Plus, Aaron has pretty straight hair. Cameron and Honkey both had curly hair, which means mistakes are less noticable.

Aaron brought in a photo of what kind of look he was going for:



betsy consulted with him to decide what would work best.


they kind of argued about it for awhile.



in the end, betsy had the scissors, so she did whatever she felt like doing.



I think it turned out pretty well. this is the face they both made afterwords, which is probably good, right?


I am booking haircuts for her now. Let me know if you want to be the next potential cover model for Romantic Times.

    actually, i just came over to my cousin's house and she said, "i love your new haircut. it's the cutest haircut i have ever seen." and she happens to be one of my top 3 favorite cousins.

    hm, maybe we need to get j. over there....

    the after picture is kind of hard to tell what the haircut looks like though, guys. how short/long is it?

    it actually is not that much shorter. this is sort of an anti-climactic post.

    If johnathan needs a cut, send him to betsy. i think he has twice as much hair as i do these days.

    I bet cutting your own hair isn't so hard when you're a girl. I had trouble getting the hair line in the back since I only had a pretty big mirror from Ikea (my roommate hadn't hung it up yet since we just moved in) and the sideburns-trimmer on my electric razor. I should proabably just get someone else to do it.

    tell jonathan to never cut his hair ever.

    I can't let this blog post go down in history without letting everyone know that Keith Paugh was the first person that let me cut his hair. And if you know Keith, you know he's already hot. And after i cut his hair, well, he was smokin hot.

    awesome!

    I just saw, over on another blog, that Keith has shaved his beard. I'd say that cuts his hotness in half. At least.

    but aporitic, for all of us girls that make out with keith on a regular basis, this is a good thing. the beard can be so abrasive.

    Pretty Keith...he tastes like cinnamon.

    Nice cuttin' Betsy. Especially on Magoo, that picture had me laughing.

    thanks cache. that means a lot to me. because that hits me right in the heart.

    cobra guy, sometimes i think that last pic of you and i being twins is my favorite pic of all time.

    It's a pretty good picture.

    Also, Cobra, nice work getting your portrait taken in the "Sweet Goods" section of the fozen foods.

    I forgot an "r" in that last post, but it's good, cuz I re-read how Bex said this was an anti-climatic post. I disagree. That lioncat took my breath away.

    Know what else wasn't a anti-climactic post? The one where racoons attacked.

    Holy Hell.

    betsy, i like our scarf picture better. but that was pre-blog, so it doesn't count as a real picture for all intents and purposes (and all intensive purposes too).

    thanks keith. maybe sometime i can see a picture of you in front of the frozen goods section. i'll cross my fingers.
