There are a few things a man should have as he nears his 30's.
A set of tools.
And - a haircut.
I don't have a haircut.
That doesn't mean I don't GET haircuts. I get haircuts all the time, and the people who cut my hair do a great job.
But I don't have a "look". Sometimes I get it cut short, sometimes I let it grow, sometimes I spike it up, sometimes I comb it to the side, sometimes I put my left arm in, I take my left arm out, I put my left arm in and I shake it all about.
By the time a guy hits 30, he normally has the haircut he'll have for the rest of his life.
I turn 28 in two weeks, and I don't have that haircut. I'm going to go through the rest of my life constantly changing haircuts like those awkward 50 yr old guys that suddenly grow a goatee - except in my case, I'll be rocking jorts, white tube socks and the Flock of Seagulls haircut.
Then I'd just have my suit, 401k and be a total tool.
