Bearded wonders
In April, a friend from Germany and I made a bike tour in the northeast along the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and Great Allegheny Passage bike trail systems that run from DC to Pittsburgh. Our trek took us through pretty remote areas, like Harpers Ferry and S...

Hair energy
Is it just my imagination? Whenever I get a haircut, it takes several days for my hair to adjust. I leave the salon with everything in place, but the next time I wash it, my hair won't behave. It seems to recoil, the ends blunted and awkward somehow. It usu...

Cue the Queue
The other day at a used book sale, I picked up  A Military Miscellany by Thomas Ayres. "The Battle over a Haircut" was the prime reason, a few brief paragraphs clueing me in as to the existence of hair queues, otherwise known as pigtails. Author Ayres start...

During recent travels in Scotland, it was early September, school just back in session. I was out for a walk one day at a park near a school, and noticed a group of lads all wearing a similar haircut. The sides were buzz cut, but on top it was left long. He...

Hair unbalanced
In July, I forgot to schedule a hair appointment until it was too late so my regular stylist wasn't available. The salon suggested Kay, and I went for it. "What are you looking for today?" Kay asked as I settled tentatively into her chair. I had experienced...
