I finally coaxed my husband into letting me give him another haircut this weekend, and my inspiration this time came from Jason Statham of "The Transporter" fame.
(Quick backstory: Right after we got married, Michael threw me for a loop with the startling announcement that if I didn't cut his hair, it wasn't get cut at all. End of story. So now I am an amateur hair stylist. Watch out.)
We actually picked up a real movie on TV last night, "The Transporter" (remember that we don't have cable and our bunny ears reception is usually sketchy at best). I didn't watch more than 20 minutes of the movie, but it was enough to give me an idea for a new haircut experiment. Jason Statham sports a very short, almost bald cut in the movie. I noticed that his hair looked pretty good, and that he has a slightly receding hairline, like Michael :).
So...I convinced Michael to let me give him a Transporter haircut today. It actually wasn't too difficult to convince him, because he'd go practically bald if he could, just because that's the easiest and most comfortable cut he's found. I didn't go quite as short as the real Transporter, but I think I did a pretty fair job!
