She Asks Me Why, I’m Just A Hairy Guy

    Dear Joel,

      After years of sporting a crewcut-like haircut required by his job, my recently retired husband has decided to grow his hair long.  Despite my repeated requests, he refuses to get a haircut.  I am all for ‘self-expression’, but it’s not a flattering look. Do you have any suggestions on how I can get him in the barber’s chair?


      Sounds like a hairy situation, but nothing too serious. I would suggest just letting him enjoy his new found freedom and my guess is that eventually he will tire of his long locks. In the meantime, love him for what’s on the inside, and be willing to share your hair-care products.

      Thank you for writing.
