I am generally about as low maintenance as it is possible to get with one’s hair. “Have I washed it lately?” and “have I brushed it lately?” are about the only hair-related questions I ask myself, and regardless of what the answers are, I find that there are few hair issues I can’t solve by stuffing it into a scrunchy and hiding it under a hat. I also very rarely get it cut or styled.

But that said, every two and a half to three years or so, I hit a point where my hair becomes officially Annoying, and it is time to whack it off and start over again. I have now reached that point. This time around it’s underscored by the fact that my beloved userinfosolarbird and I are going to a nice dinner on Tuesday night, at which I must dress more formally than usual, and so I wished to do something to my hair to maximize its ability to look decent without me having to do anything to do it.

Therefore she and I went to Great Clips yesterday and a very nice lady gave me the shortest haircut I’ve had in some time. In fact, I’m pretty sure I have Starbuck Hair now, and given my affection for my and Dara’s Crazy TV Girlfriend, this is not a bad thing. I do however promise to not paint weird things on walls, to run afoul of crazy Cylon stalkerboys, or go off on a last doomed mission to find Earth. (I make no promises about avoiding swooning, though, if either Jamie Bamber or Michael Trucco happen to show up.) Also, now I totally want a Galactica flight jacket all over again.

Behold my Starbuck hair!

It looks awesome! And that iss totally Starbuck hair. (It's so much fun to describe hair in terms of characters. My last haircut was Mia-Farrow-in-Rosemary's-Baby. I... like short.)

Totally a trick you can pull out at the next session, I think!

Looks very nice indeed! That length really looks good on you, imo.

That's a great look. I like it a lot!

BTW, for the styling-impaired, this ( is an awesome product -- you can get the same great finished look your stylist gives you with a regular blower and a round brush, but it doesn't require you to have a third hand and/or olympic-level coordination.

Did Alan Doyle have his hair like that once?

That's a really flattering cut!

Once when my hair was short a cute girl at work said (in kind of an intense way) that I looked like Starbuck (swoon). Maybe we can form a society?

maybe not colour-wise, but certainly length and the way it hangs is very Alan Doyle-ish! It's cute and I bet the hair flips are fun :)

Eeee, you went even shorter than I did! But it looks very bouncy and cute. :)

Cute hair cut! I'm planning on getting mine chopped next week, actually, to inspire my son to allow his hair to be cut as well. I may have to get Herself's hair cut as well, because he's fixated on doing what she does / says.
