The Magnum

Remember this post where I talked about my hubby wanting to buy clippers so I could cut his hair? Well, it was time for another cut, and we decided that we needed a cape so the hair didn’t stick to him. He volunteered to head to the beauty supply store to pick one up (huh, who is this man)? So, off he went.

He called me from the car on the way home telling me about all of the different choices and how silly the models looked on the front on the packages. What’s really funny, is this is what he came home with:

I would consider this guy pretty goofy looking! And, it’s called The Magnum! Hilarious. And, no, hubby’s neck is not 26 inches!

Unfortunately, when I asked if I could take before and after pictures, he said it was fine…as long as the pictures didn’t end up on the world wide web….so, no pictures for you. Just use your imagination. I actually did a fade, and I think it came out okay! He did sweat quite a bit during the “procedure” though!

And, thank you all for your well wishes. I’m feeling much better. And, got hubby to take a picture for you all to compare. (I cheated and this time around is 2 days later than last time, but you get the idea)!
