Going Jordan

TrumpPicardJordan 2

Pardon the sidetrack . . .

Some time back, I was leaving my home, and some rain dripped off the roof, straight on to my bald spot. I decided then that I had to make a life decision.

In my mind, there are three stages of dealing with hair loss, without resorting to transplants or Rogaine. I name the three stages after the most prominent people who elected them.

Trump:

Here you act like nothing is different, and cover it up. Also known as the Comb Over.

Picard:

Here you admit that your coverage isn’t what it used to be, but you still want something there. So you trim it down and own up to it.

Jordan:

Here you say, what the hell, and shave it all off.

So, about 5 years ago I went Picard and started getting a 3/8 inch buzz cut all over.

Me as Picard

But then came the Recent Unpleasantness and the threat of losing it all, and I decided to go Jordan.

Me New

Another milestone.

    I went Picard 3 years ago when I got tired of it blowing in my face while standing in front of a fan to stay cool. Now I just run a #2 blade over the whole thing for about a 1/4″ velvety finish.

  2. During my chemo most of my hair fell out, and regrew as a patchwork. Thus, I shaved every two or three days.
    When I stopped chemo, my hair growth increased significantly, making daily shaving impractical.
    I now sport a 3/8″ cut and a biker-esque goatee. Fortunately, my roommate is an exgf and hair stylist!
    Whatever works, Bro!

    • After my two rounds of chemo, I’ve lost most of my eyebrows, and hair elsewhere has thinned out a lot. My facial hair grows sporadically and is rather soft and curly, not like a normal beard at all.

      Still don’t know if I’ll keep the Jordan or go back Picard. I’ll leave that to later.
