Herb needs to find a new barber
“Waiter, bring me burnt toast and a rotten egg.” “I can’t bring you that!” “Why not? You did yesterday.”
Similar experience myself. I went to a new barber last week. Asked for a medium taper, and left with one maybe 1/4 inch long at top (went in with it 2-3 inches long on sides). Obviously we understand “medium length” a lot different. Won’t be going back there again. At least it will grow back out.
Haven’t been to a barber since the ‘90s. There’s not a whole lot to trim. Three minutes with mom’s old (75 yrs) Craftsman trimmer and a #5 blade – done.
