I purchased 5 of these old Belmont Barbers chairs from a closing down village barbers shop around 10 years ago.
I did not really have anywhere to store them and the protests from my wife got even more vocal after one of them spewed hydraulic oil all over the floor.
This one was the best of the bunch, Working condition but sadly no head rests.



All the others had tears in the leatherette that had been repaired with Duck tape.
I paid £100 for the lot on a passing whim and sold them for £100-£200 each on a well known auction site.

Does this hair work on a normal human, or will it look silly on someone who isn't model-attractive?

^^^first it can only be worn that way with blue velvet sport coats.   So if you have one, you can wear it.

You can achieve the same look by not washing your hair for at least two weeks.

I think that would look good on you, but it would require a hair dryer every day to get it looking that full. Not washing or blow drying can approximate that but flatter and not as dry looking. What most people would call greasy, though I guess it's natural oils in your hair.

It seems like modelface and I have similar hair texture, and my hair is naturally pretty greasy.  I've never used product on my hair of any kind unless it was for a costume.  

I think I'll give it a shot, see what the guys at Heimies can do with that photo and my head.  If it doesn't work out, maybe I'll join you and Mike in SF for something new, since this cut would leave me with quite a bit to work with still.

I think it would be a good cut for you. It seems to be your aesthetic and hair type as well.   Go for it.

In your recent fit pic with your Lofgren boots you were sporting already a similar style with longer hair. It fits you very well, I think.

You're not meaning 'no poo' here, do you?

I like that theory and tried no poo for about two months, only washing with egg yolk and a water, cider mixture. But it didn't work for me. My hair became to greasy. 
But there are people who've got good results with it.

I like the philosophy. WIth normal shampoo one is taking of the oil of the scalp, leaving it very dry. The body then has to produce it all anew, and apparently tends to overproduce.

I'm using shampoo only once a week, washing of course more often, nearly every day with just warm water. This works. And with the shampoo I'm avoid any containing Sodium Laureth Sulphate. There are some with Coco Glucoside which is supposed to be milder.

No, I do use shampoo when my hair is more than a few inches long.  I do fine without when it's short though, but once it gets longer it gets too greasy too quickly.

Thanks for the encouragement dudes, I've been in indecision-land for way too long.

Go for it. Good look. Still pretty long, so no risk really.

Hard part will be getting it to look anything like the photo. I find these models hair shots to be pretty non-reproducible. As noted above, blow drying. And probably some hard wax too.
