I finished High School 39 years ago, in my high school graduation picture I have nearly shoulder length curly wavy hair, mutton-chop sideburns, and a cheesy mustache. My father hated it. He thought it looked silly. It was very much the style of young men of the time. His mother, my grandmother told stories on my father. When he was a teenager she would give him 25-cents and send him off on a Saturday afternoon to get a "proper gentleman's haircut." He would get a 5-cent buzz cut and use the other 20-cents to see a movie. She urged me to ignore his complaints and I did. As I have grown older, the hair styles of young men have varied widely, sometimes looking a bit silly. I remind myself that my father thought my hair looked silly. Unique hair styles are part of being young, thinking the styles are silly is part of being old. I try not to think old. Express yourself.
Sorry Mitchell, I had this posting scheduled before I saw your posting yesterday.
