OK, so. I have dirty blond hair, that I normally buzz very short (i.e. a "4" on electric clippers), for the following reason. When my hair gets longer, and especially when I apply most styling products to it (pomade, wax, etc) it tends to get very wavy.. and it all waves the same direction, more or less. Problem with this is that if I'm going to style my hair, I usually want to go for a messy or devil-may-care sort of look, but the waviness of my hair tends to make me look pretty "polished" no matter what. Either that or with some products, the individual hairs themselves start to curl up and it just makes me look too effeminate for my tastes. So, one of my questions is.. do the other board members feel that a simple buzzed short haircut (not like military short, but still short, as mentioned maybe a 4 or 5 on electric clippers) is, well, too boring to be fashionable? Also, if you happen to know a professional product which will make my hair less wavy and more manipulatable, suggestions would be appreciated. I've basically run out of things to try when it gets longer, so buzzing it is my last resort...
