View Full Version : So, I'm going to get a haircut because...

01-29-2008, 06:33 PM
...I need a third job (One is summer, one is reffing...) and will be applying at Starbucks. (Yay health insurance!!! ...and one of Fortune 100's best companies to work for!!!)

So I was thinking about haircuts... well I used to have a normal one with a cowlick front: (2 or so years ago)

But I don't want to go back to that... My friends don't want to see me cut my hair... I don't want to cut my hair, but I've got to figure something out. It looks good slicked back, but I'm not a fan of a lot of hair product. Even so, what would I use to keep it slicked back?

I was thinking of going with a fauxhawk kinda look again like:

But I still don't know.

I love you Dave...

Heh... I <3 the late 80's early 90's

well, my first choice would have been the Misfits-era Glen Danzig's devilock, but i cant find pics :D so here's the davey havok one! (which i've always thought looked pretty cool. its like the opposite of a mullet, party up front, business in the back!)

i got sick of messing with hair, so i went to the army barber and told her to cut it all off, and im letting it grow back naturally. personally, ive never been a fan of the fauxhawks (or european fins, as i call em) and those gelled-down (or is it up, i forget) cowlicks remind me of all the preppy kids i went to school with :(

It's simple, or at least for me it is. Just got to whatever barber/stylist usually cuts your hair, and tell them you are looking to get a job but don't really want to cut your hair too much. It is there job to make suggestions until you are satisfied, because that is how they get good business, by helping people get the haircut they want. Not to mention the added tips. I've done this for jobs and even formal things like weddings. Trust me, it will work out fine.

Or we've got the Pete Wentz look. Which I personally could see myself with... but will a business hire that?

Oh and that top pic is me. BTW.

That's how my drivers license looks haha.

Just buy a new mach 3 razor, and go to town man. Nothin feels better than bald and it looks professional pretty darn professional.

Tan that sucker up though you don't wanna look like a Q-tip until may.
Also, paintballs don't feel too good when they crack your noggin so, wear a toque haha.

01-29-2008, 09:14 PM
Bald will not get you a job. And bald is not that attractive, either. Seriously, ask the girls if the prefer a nice cut to a skin head. Seriously Ace, print out the pictures, take them to the person who cuts your hair, tell them you are looking to get a job, and hand them the pics as reference for ideas, and let them advise you. They know what they are doing.

01-29-2008, 09:32 PM
I dunno man I make more $/h than my age and I went in bald so i wouldn't completely say it 'will not get you a job' and again with the girls haha. Either way, I was aiming at a joke but it seems you're not a fan. It's all preference. I'm assuming this guy likes his hair tho.

01-29-2008, 10:16 PM
I'm not saying that I have anything against a shaved head personally, I am just giving him advice. A shaved head is usually not as well respected as a clean haircut. And look at the people who work at Starbucks. They are not the kind of people with shaved heads. And with the girls situation I speak from experience. The last time I brought up shaving my head, one of my female friends was almost revolted, and stated that a girl would usually prefer the mop top to the shaved head, and I asked around and most girls agreed. No offense to you, I am just helping Ace out as best I can.

YOU FOOL! AMERICANS AREN'T SUPPOSED TO KNOW ABOUT THE TOQUE!:foreheadslap: and also, seeing as how almost no americans (that i talk to anyway) know what a toque is, i will explain seeing as how baldy here didn't :P its pretty much a fancy name for a beanie, and its also alot better quality and warmer for these canadian winters (-50*C or -58*F today, global warming? o really... :dodgy:) another few things, its a-bout not aboot, and its zed, not zee, ZED, and its a pop, not a soda!

Okay, im done! thats the high point of my night...:p

... :questionicon: Snow musta addled the Canadians' minds... :rolleyes:

Ted, just get a standard American hair cut, something that you see yourself having while working at Starbucks. The over the top style of yours might or might not fit in there, but I wouldn't know... here in Cali most of the people working there have short hair, either spiked or not.

01-30-2008, 12:07 PM
Why not just tell the hair stylist to cut a lil at a time until u find the style you like?

I have almost the same problem. I use to get a buzz cut every 3 months, stopped that and let it grow for aboot 8 months now. And today i finally get it cut, my hair is like 4 to 5in longs:rolleyes: . Kinda makes me laugh at my self seeing my shadow when i wear a hat, my hair just curls right up. i typed this drinking a soda to...:p

01-30-2008, 01:49 PM
I would lol if you cut your hair really short like a buzz cut, I like the fauxhawk, but tahts just me

01-30-2008, 03:45 PM
I usually go for the unshaven/unkept/unshowered look. It's easy.

01-30-2008, 04:03 PM
If it's Starbucks, you could probably get away with the way you currently wear it.

But my vote is always going to be on Toronto's own king of style and easily one of the single greatest interviewers of all time (Like a Canadian Henry Rollins, without the band)... George Stroumboulopoulos.


He has a show on the CBC that's really good as well, if anyone's interested called The Hour. There should be a few episodes kicking around YouTube.

I usually go for the unshaven/unkept/unshowered look. It's easy.

Very true... I think I'm finally going to have to get sheared soon myself though.. the delousing isn't working too well anymore.. :D

I agree whole heartedly.

01-30-2008, 06:32 PM
shave it all. don't worry about it for months.

01-31-2008, 06:00 AM
I like my hair long. My hair's naturally wavy/curly, so if you can picture a younger Jimmy Page with a little more curl and an inch or two shorter, that's about what I look like.

I don't care what my business thinks of my hair. My hair looks decent anyway, but my two employers know I do good work- that does the talking, not my hair.

01-31-2008, 08:27 AM
I'm not shaving my head. My girlfiend and I are both REALLY into hair and it would kill both of us to see me do that.

The Pete Wentz look is where I'm going to go if they don't like my hair.

If it's Starbucks, you could probably get away with the way you currently wear it.

So you think this would get me a job there?


01-31-2008, 01:55 PM
If you style it differently during the interview, probably. glaman said it right, if they don't have a rule about it, and you're a hard worker, you shouldn't run into trouble.

Hell, most days I look like I've just come in from wrestling a Sasquatch (my work takes me to most GM[and all sub brands aka Cadillac or Hummer]/Ford/Dodge dealers in Toronto), so I think you should be alright. ;)

01-31-2008, 03:26 PM
Definitely, they'll give anyone a job from what I could tell. Starbucks is probably the least likely place to judge people by appearances, really.

spray and pray
