What's the two most
dangerous words to say to a gay hair dresser in Greenwich Village?
My head was someone elses's experiment. And when I think back to
the days of New York, so much of it was defined by the Hair Du Jour.
- Acorn Head - It began simple... just short back and sides,
but the evolution eventually transformed it to closely shaved...
then darkened... the came the long top... and the frosted highlights.
I knew when I had gone to far, when a woman I knew said "I
could recognize you from down the street with that hair!"
- Blondie - I was in a play, so I started to leave the
sides and back alone. Only trouble is, I was playing a jock, and
he just seemed like a Blond to me. I discovered "Sun In"
all by myself. It took them weeks to notice, but then the odd
looks started. "Is your head getting lighter?"
- Mullet Man - OK, yeah, I'll admit it... but EVERYONE
was doing it. I think I was just feeling guilty for not letting
the hair on the back of my head see the light of day for so long.
This was the hair I took with me to Hollywood, where everyone
thought I was Mark Linn-Baker from Perfect Strangers.
You be the judge on that one :-)
