Just A Trim


IMG-20131231-00925

Today I decided it was high time that I had a hair cut.

My hair, as you can see from the final moments of the video blog below, has grown extremely long. I’ve always had it cut so I can brush it forward and down… and it’s always had a damn parting in the middle.

I’ve often wondered what I would look like if I had it cut so that I could grow it backwards – a lot of you have messaged me saying you love my hair longish. Well, I’m inclined to agree with you fans 🙂

So, for 2014, something new!

When it comes to things like Dentists or Haircuts or anything to do with being delicate with my body, I have to be very specific. I have to TRUST the person handing my body, so I’m not gonna go to any old nut-job with a scissors and a sign that reads: “OPEN”.

I’ve seen some truly awful barbers in my past – one of them in my home town of Abertillery, called ‘PEDRO’s’, who’s last words to me were, “You either have it cut the one way I know, or you find yourself a girly shop” as all he knew how to do was shave a head and a face. Suffice to say it, he lost himself a good paying customer.

Another bad barbers I went to was in Wolverhampton, during my university years. He charged me £10 for a cut that made me look like an ex-soldier with a wig. Ah, those student days… But I digress.

These days, I normally go to a hair salon called RHINO, based in the Royal Arcade in Cardiff, just off St Mary’s Street. Unfortunately though, by the time I got there it was closed for business and couldn’t fit me in. Right next door though, was a new barber salon called the “Keep the Faith Social Club” and seemed far more suited to Men than RHINO. So, I gave it a chance.

The result I got was great! 😀

Normally hairdressers I go to just bang out any old cut and I always find myself leaving the premises thinking “don’t worry, it’ll grow on you” as they’ll cut it a little too short or not quite how I imagined. But these big chaps with their shaved hair and red waistcoats, whom looked more suited to being ‘Rock & Roll’ bouncers than gentlemen of the trim, gave a far more satisfying and delicate service.

Suffice to say it, I left with my head held high and thinking “This looks fantastic.” I’ll definitely be returning in future.
