In desperate need of a haircut

I need a haircut but I am unsure what kind of style of haircut to get or even where to get it cut.

My hair is the longest it has ever been and I'd like to try something new or at least something that will look good on me (maybe even professional).

I have no clue as what be a good haircut for me. I had the idea recently to submit head shots to local shops and ask them what they would and go with whoever had the best idea.

Does anyone have any recommendations, especially if you are part of the profession, including where to go in the Seattle area? Does the head shot idea sound reasonable?

    Now maybe its just me but when I need a cut I just go and get one, its hair it will grow back and if I hate it I can always take the clippers to it.

    ask your barber or stylist

    Just getting it cut and living with the results is typically what I have done in the past. I want to try a different approach.

    I have let my hair grow out so long that I figure I might as well put results to use.

    My barber has known me my entire life. Which plays a part in how she cuts my hair and how much she lets her own opinions play into cutting my hair. I want to try something else.

    Get racing stripes shaved into your head.

    It'll make you faster.

    Pictures of your current head/face/hair would be a good place to start if you want advice from people.

    Without pictures it's hard to judge what would look good on you.

    If all else fails, look through some magazines and see what hairstyles you like/think would look good on you and bring them to a stylist.

    The headshot idea is going to leave them looking at you like you're a nutjob. I used to reception at several salons in Seattle.

    What do you want to spend first off? Including tip.

    As I assume you're a guy that doesn't enjoy maintenance, just get the sides cut to around a quarter inch, then leave a few inches on top and have them fade it together. Easy, looks good on 90% of dudes, and is fairly immune to bedhead/looking bad.

    Interesting that this thread came up today. I went to an actual mens barbershop yesterday and got my first real haircut.

    The barber did a fantastic job on my hair and then proceeded to use a straight razor on my sideburns and neckline followed by aftershave. He then wiped down my face and neck with a hot towel and used a hand massager to rub my shoulders. It was literally a life changing experience.

    When I go next month I'm going to get the full deal including a hot shave and a shoeshine.

    Find yourself a good barber, you'll love it.
