    Get some attitude.

    You need to ask her to cut your hair even more gangsta.

    Then wear some incredibly conservative threads. And when people do a double-take, you say "What?" and then don't wait around for their reply.

    I like a loose jumper which a XL is for me. However according to CR Sportscraft and other Australian brands i am a XXL jumper. I would go with the normal size jumper that you feel comfortable in.

    I get mine through Rockit Barbers in the city, on Collins.

    Although my local member (Bill Shorten) does quite a good shave with a bloody kitchen knife I've heard, if that's more your thing.

    Indeed. But then that's one of the pitfalls of ordering online :(. Fortunately kathy's goes to xxxl so if they get your seal of approval for quality I might risk getting to large than too small.

    It's not that curly and frizzy that its an afro but you can tell its not your average asian.
    Basically I'm just after a barber/hairdresser that can understand my hair type and cut it so it looks good. Everyone in the past just cuts it as though I have straight hair but it never looks amazing. I need a good haircut!

    Looks like (and I'm no hair expert) you need a better conditioner and some product in your hair. Something not too shiny but not matte either, semi gloss. I think that's part of why it looks so frizzy to you, because it's dry.

    Jas is right, particularly about something with a light shine to it. But there's also the cut. You're not going to be helped by most barbers. Reason being, your hair requires thinning - most barbers will do this with thinning scissors, that will create choppiness and result in a shit haircut. You need someone adept at point cutting to take out weight where necessary to minimise the bulkiness and 'fro-ness and allow you to shape your hair better. Point cutting is something a hairdresser is taught, and a few do well.

    There's a guy named Andrew Zumbo who's now an editorial stylist - see if he still cuts hair, he used to cut for American Crew and knows how to cut hair properly. Failing that, there's a place called Barbiere in NYC that is good at this; I went there and it was sick. You could maybe become a millionaire and go there regularly and commute as necessary in your G6.

    Unfortunately most barbers don't deal well with your hair type and most hairdressers want to give you some shithouse fashion cut. At the end of the day, be happy you got that much hair on your head.

    My advice is to chase down a barber - there's still some around if you look hard enough.

    If you've been going to just cuts all your life it will blow your mind going to someone who specialises in male hair as opposed to seeing it as small change between hair extension appointments.
