I just snuck out on my lunch break to get a haircut.
Here's a haiku I wrote that sums it up.

Another lame haircut
What part of "like a rockstar"
didn't you understand?

Really, it's like I SAY "Rockstar!" and they HEAR "Soccer Mom!"

Maybe I shouldn't care since I cover my hair anyway, but I still do.
There is no reason I shouldn't look chic in the privacy of my own home.

Add in some dramatic highlights for that Rock Star look. Or a purple streak.

Manic Panic Hot Hot™Pink is the hair color to go with. Gwen Stefani's fave.

hey i do the same, why not? the only thing I don't do is let them cut bangs, b/c those are a pain to pin under the sheitl/snood

whoa! it's time....i never thought of asking my haircutter to make me look like a rock star...next time...hope she doesn't laugh too loud.

I didn't actually say "make me look like a rockstar." I just showed the stylist a picture of a hip looking hair-do. I didn't help. Let me know how your method works out Eliyahu.

Depending on how much hair sticks out from under your haircovering, you could still look like a Rockstar! not just in your home. I know someone who recently got a haircut, and you can tell that the little spikes of hair visible beneath her hat are cut in a jagged rockstar style. Should i ask her where she got hers done (it's probably someplace in Jerusalem).

Myself, i prefer the "cheap yeshiva bokher buzz your head with your beard trimmer" look ;-) .

Steg, I've never seen that look but that's what I was going for!
I don't show much hair though and the woman who cut it left it a little long for me to leave the shaggy ends out. Maybe I just need to be more assertive when I'm in the chair and I'd have less to complain about when I got home.

Steg: The buzzcut is always the best and cheapest way to go. Our yishuv has a guy in his 80's who gives haircuts.

He was in a Nazi Death camp, and upon arrival, the SS asked the group of Jews, "Who here is a barber?" Having never cut anyone's hair in his life, this guy raises his hand and confidently said, "I'm a barber". He became the camp barber...and it saved his life.

Upon liberation, he moved to the US, and then on to Israel.

He gives the best haircuts I ever had.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real income.
It gets down to choose a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
