Short Haircuts for Summer Heat

How hot is it in Washington DC today? Hot enough for a shave and a haircut?

While the lad here is too young to get a shave, he is losing his fade for a summer buzz cut. I was in Fusion Day Spa too, for my own summer-close trim.

Its just too hot to have long hair in a DC summer!

Which brings me to today’s question: do you get shorn in the summer? And if not, why not? Outside those that need long hair for their glam-fashion jobs, I don’t understand why people keep long hair in the summer.

Its too humid to do anything with it and if you wash long hair, it will take hours to dry. Worse, you sweat way more with long hair than short, and the stink stays in long hair too.

Summers are made for short hair.

    For years I have shaved my head monthly starting in March or so and then let it grow out starting in December for the winter months. Fun.

    I look forward to summer (rare for me) for my hair because I can go BLONDER!!

    It just means that I get my “high and tight” more frequently than once a month (more like every 2 weeks). Why men choose to deal with long hair boggles me…. there is so much to be said for just running your hand along your head after a shower and being dry is such a great convenience.
