I normally comb my hair back. Sometimes, hair fairies come and comb my hair while I’m sleeping, and it’ll be perfectly-combed FORWARD when I wake up. Since it’s already neat, and usually won’t comb back very well afterward, I just keep it that way. Inevitably, somebody points out that I got a haircut, and this strip plays out.
It makes me wonder, though. Every time somebody gets a haircut, everybody HAS to compliment the haircut. It’s never a so-so, it’s never just an acknowledgment, it’s ALWAYS a compliment. What I wonder is, do people just want everybody to be bald? If haircuts require compliments, surely we should just go all the way. “Nice haircut” is fine, but I want total admiration.
As for the title of this comic, “Tieni I Peli” will only be recognized by Italians who listen to Leone Di Lernia(site’s in Italian)…. or by me and a friend or two. I don’t have an Italian comic going(yet?), so I’ll use the hairy song title here. The song is about a guy who really needs a haircut, sung to the tune of “Baby Baby”. Mostly it’s his eyebrows and nose hairs that need cutting, though. Italian lyrics are here.
