Ice Breaker – Hair

It’s that time of the weekend…time for an ice breaker question!  For those of you who are new or who forgot, ice breaker questions are used to help people get to know each other – to “break the ice” so to speak.  I love hearing what other people have to say and how they think.  So for today, I’m throwing out another simple ice breaker question.  I’ll answer it first, then it’s your turn.  Today’s question is prompted by my recent haircut.  Answer the question by leaving a comment for us all to enjoy.  Thanks!

Question:  What’s the craziest haircut or hairstyle that you’ve ever had?  Or What’s the craziest haircut or hairstyle that you always wanted but never got?

My Answer:  Here you go….

Like I said in the introduction, I just got my haircut yesterday.  Today, I wear a pretty traditional haircut for a 39-year-old business person.  I don’t get my haircut nearly as often as I used to thanks to the ever slowing pace of my hair growth.  I don’t think I’ll ever go completely bald but I’ve noticed a thinning patch in the middle of my head and the front seems to be marching back – I mean recently at a decent clip.  Sorry for the awful pun.

My brothers definitely dabbled in the hair thing a bit more than me as they’ve both sported long hair down to the middle of their backs.  My craziest hairstyle was probably the summer (or two) where I used Sun-In to bleach my hair.  As a small kid, I was a toe-head – blond as can be, but as I started to get older, my hair went to dirty blond and then to brown.  So the bleached hair was definitely noticeable.  I’ll try to find a picture to throw up on the Jon Stolpe Stretched Facebook Page.  Now, the gray is starting to slowing make its way into the color palette.

Growing up in the 80s, I always wanted to shave lightning bolts and my initials into my head, but that never happened.  I don’t think I was brave enough, and I don’t think my parents were too fond of the idea.

So there you have it, my answer to the question.  Now it’s your turn….
