- The Washington Times - Friday, July 28, 2006

I was jogging around Capitol Hill the other day, spotting well-coifed interns and young professionals left and right. I couldn’t help but notice an unfortunate truth: Every male of age 20 to 35 in this city has the same haircut.

Have you realized this yet? You’ve seen it before. It’s that short, one-inch cut that is easily combed forward. It was a fresh and exciting look … five years ago. But it has since become the norm. It is the establishment. But it’s so boring.

My question is this: Why can’t you people be more creative? Live life a little. Listen, I know you’re all focused on having a successful career and you don’t want a crazy hairdo to get in your way. But for the love of L’Oreal, try something creative for once.

You might be looking at me and saying, “What’s so special about your hair?”

See, I am going for what I have deemed the conservative bed-head look. That is, I want a hint of the bed-head look, but I’m not going to overdo it.

Washingtonians deserve to experience a life free of the shackles of boring hair. Life is too short to be follicly frustrated.
