The Bad Haircut. We Can All Relate.
6x6 Oil on Panel, Black Floater Frame
This kid hates his haircut and I think we can all relate.
But if you think YOU had the most horrible haircut ever, you’re wrong. It was me, and I blame Dorothy Hamill. My hair was very thick and kinda curly so it would never lay flat. How could the hairdresser not have realized this before she turned me into Carrot Top in the movie Chairman of the Board ( if you’re one of the six people who saw that movie, you’ll know what I mean). When I left, I looked like someone had stuck a large bowl-shaped wig on my head. Right side up, so It was flat on the top and flared out all around. I looked like if you spun me around too fast, I’d take off like one of those propellers on a stick.
The worst part was, my parents would NOT sign a note to the principal, saying I had a brain tumor and needed to take the rest of the year off. (They were so mean).
Needless to say, my social status never recovered.
Actually, I was crying so much, my Dad took a shaver to his head and cut off random sections to make me feel better. It didn’t. Though I recognized it as a kind gesture, I also knew the nerds he worked with wouldn't even notice (he was a structural engineer and literally wore a pocket protector every day). He also wore slacks that were too long to be shorts and too short to be pants. (I may have inherited my fashion sense from my dad, which is to say, I have no fashion sense).
