I LOVE My Haircut!

I'm sorry, I realize this is totally obnoxious, but I LOVE my haircut today, and I want to show it off! Because you know once I'm faced with doing it myself, I'm going to fail miserably. I'm totally rocking the Stevie Nicks shag of the 70s. So much so, in fact, I feel certain that if I were to run into Lindsey Buckingham today, he would totally want me.

Wow. Very nice haircut! If I saw you in a bookshop, I would totally work my way around to seeing what you looked from the front.

On another note (since d-listed isn't really the place):

Turkish used to be written in Arabic script until the early 20th century when Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey, in a bid to fully modernise the country - i.e. westernise - changed it to latin script. It's kinda funny. He also made it illegal for women to wear the traditional Islamic veil, among other things, and basically secularised the whole system. He's still worshipped as a quasi-god in Turkey (face on the money, portraits everywhere, etc).

A well known Turkish writer, Orhan Pamuk, has raised the whole Armenian issue and it has generated a lot of controversy in Turkey. Turks are very sensitive and proud about their nation and it's history. They were a major world empire for 500 years and lost it, and that's always hard to take. IMO, Turks have an superiority-inferiority complex problem, as well as an identity one - i.e. they dont know if they're european or islamic, or modern or traditional, or what. It doesn't help that the European Union treats them like shit for wanting to join and keep diddling them around over it, though one can understand the EU's concerns as well.

As usual with the 'old world', it's all very 'complicated' and wrapped up in too much ancient history and not enough commonm sense and is, ulitmately, a little childish and boring. If anyone tells you Europe is going to be the next big power block in the world to challenge the might of the US you can just laugh at them courtesy of me. It'll never happen.

Very nice LA :) I lhoove layers. And it's a great color, too. I think we should all post photos of our hair :) I love the color. I want to go darker. Every time I get my hair did I ask for brunette, and leave sort of a dishwater blonde. It's making me insane.

Everytime I try to go blonde it looks wrong!

Very nice hair LA. And you are right, its impossible to recreate what the hairdresser did.

As usual I am behind the curve - I just had my layers removed to go for one length.

Hey everyone, thanks for the mad props! Love you guys!

ffleur - I don't know if layers are in or out, so you may be ahead of the curve and me behind it. My hair is super thick and just works better when it's not one length.

NV - I've gotten a little darker slowly over the last couple years, but I've reached a happy medium. My real hair color is actually very very dark brown.

b - I appreciated and enjoyed your comments. I plan to look into Orhan Pamuk next time I'm in a bookshop. Maybe you'll find me there. :) I will take your insight into the Turks into consideration. They do suffer an inferiority complex. Do you remember that the enemy in The Godfather was called The Turk?

But listen, do you know The Caernarvon Castle in London? A friend of mine is playing there on May 12! If you love music, check it out and tell him you know me (you'll have to use my real name, he doesn't know me by LA)! More details are here: http://www.johnhoskinson.com/Caernarvon.htm and more European tour dates here http://www.johnhoskinson.com/schedule.htm.
