The dude shaving her didn't even blink. Cold as ice.
i feel bad for the two random friends. coming through to witness something thats gunna be real funny and it ends up being this dark awkward experience.
He realized she was upset but what could he do? He started in the middle; couldn't even turn it into a fade.
I actually applaud him for the detail and professionalism with which he did it. That's a quality shave right there.
That went from a fun afternoon with friends to V For Vendetta real quick.
That's one of those things where as a friend you should be like "Yeah I know you were stupid and lost the bet but why don't we change the punishment to something else." Like taking you out to dinner or something like that. As dumb as she was for making it, it's pretty douchey to actually make her go through with it.
especially if the cowboys were playing at home, you just dont make those bets.
That's because he understands how gambling works. Don't like what the consequences might be? Don't make the bet to begin with. You know she talking crazy shit before the game.
Girls are so crazy. From laughing to crying in 0 flat
The thing is, making someone I care about miserable and self conscious for months isn't a win for me. So I really don't understand this bet.
First world problems
Sports, while being a worthwhile pastime, can be taken to ridiculous and unhealthy extremes.
That girl is silly. I actually think that's a better look for her. Her hair was covering a pretty nice head-shape.
Maybe don't bet your hair on a game if you aren't absolutely sure that you could handle it. I feel bad for her, but then I really really don't. I did love that shift in mood when the laughter turned to crying though. Fuck that was spectacular.
Well. He could've faded a skullet.
Self appearance for a girl is a pretty big deal and I'm guessing it's going to take a while for that hair to grow back.
I clicked ahead to near the end when he was just doing the finishing touches and it fucking bummed me out. Just the sound of the shaver, and quiet sobbing. Being in that room must've been something out of a nightmare.
What the fuck are you going to do? He started at the top. Ain't no way to fix that. You have to shave it all off.
It started as a funny joke. Then, after the point of no return, he manned up and did her a favor.
Did you watch the whole thing? Dude grabs a chunk of her hair and puts it in her lap at one point, mother fucker would probably kill kittens if asked to without blinking.
It's just hair. It's just a bit of fun. If you can't take it, because your hair means that much, maybe you shouldn't have made the bet to begin with and then go along with it? And it's not like they can just stop after the first cut either and leave her half shaved after she breaks down.... She was all for it as they began cutting. It will grow back. It's not like her life is ruined... Why not just go with it and have some fun at your own expense? Maybe she went on to do just that?
Self appearance for a girl
Hair in general for people is a pretty big deal. Generally people don't change their hair unless they are undergoing a major life change. It is, for whatever reason, a huge part of people's perception of their own identity. Those who seek to dehumanize (such as interrogators) quickly move to cut off the hair because it helps speed the process of breaking them down. From experience in my own life, women who are trying to make a clean break often get a new haircut... regrettably including my ex gf, who changed her hair cut right before breaking up with me (and it was a huge tip off to me that something was up).
As a male, I can say that going from long hair to short hair was extremely emotionally jarring for me.
If they really loved her they NEVER would have let her bet on Romo.
It's amazing, but some people don't like it when someone else feels like shit. Especially, when they love the person they are making feel bad.
Why would you feel sorry? Come on she just got her hair shaved, it's not like she got mugged or raped. Plus she made that decision herself, so there's that.
I felt sorry for her because she was clearly very upset by it happening to her and I have empathy for other people's feelings since I'm a fucking human being and not a robot.
Maybe she could donate that hair to a good cause.
when he places the huge clump of her hair in her hands, I died. Too funny
If you plan to change the bet after the fact, don't make the bet at all. If it's said and both parties agree, you follow through.
I actually have a friend that if she laughs to much, she'll start crying. Her sister and I actually might think she may be insane.
Well, you sound like a real sweetheart, then.
No way, dude. Straight up Uncle Fester.
I know! I was surprised at the quality of the cut, dude must be a barber
It's the fuckin' Cowboys.
Why would it be a good year?
"I dreamed a dream my team would win"
Well the alternative is to leave her with a huge bald patch. At least if it's evenly shaved, she can wear a wig.
girl with the camera sounds like a CUNT
If i was a robot I'd be bender.
can't really blame her for wanting to destroy the houses of parliament after that.
Could you possibly misinterpret that post any more?
Like actualy crying? Not just I laughed so hard I had tears, but bawling?
More like he probably shaves his own head.
Yeah, like full-on world is ending crying.
As a girl who has shaved her head for losing a bet before, although it didn't bother me (I laughed it off), I can totally see why she's bummed. But yeah, she shouldn't have made the bet to begin with. Also I think it suits her.
Never bet on the Cowboys to win anything. Ever.
I'm not insane but...
Why have I never seen a sentence that started with those words and ended with a convincing argument as to why the person is really not insane?
This year is not going to be a good year for the 'Boys.
Les Mis anyone?
"We're sorry your hair died..." (hug)
You know what's up.
Gotta start somewhere.
I keep mine bald. I have an impeccably round, nice looking head. She was lucky. At least her head was nice. If he had shaved it and it was a lumpy mess I'd feel worse for her.
When he said "Do you have a comb?" I was expecting it to be followed by "Well you won't need that anymore!"
The dude shaving her didn't even blink.
The hate of the cowboys is strong with this one.
This is teaching her a valuable life lesson about not promising something you can't commit to. A kid might cry when you tell them they can't eat nothing but ice cream for every meal, but tough shit, kid needs to learn certain lessons in life. Just like with this whiny gal, she needs to learn not to make bets she can't commit to. Maybe next time she'll think twice about this kind of thing.
Probably because hair is basically a facial feature. And faces are a huge part of identification for humans.
I think leaving it halfway cut would have been worse. He started towards the middle. That's not a good look on anybody.
It's teaching her that people are going to hold her to her word. If you say you're going to do something, people will expect that you will do it.
And what the fuck is up with all the "but her fee-fee's" talk? She was a-ok with it throughout the entire thing. She sat there and took it, cried like a little bitch, but she allowed it to happen.
Also, what the fuck is wrong with this generation? It's all about feelings. Nothing else fucking matters except to make sure someone's precious feelings aren't disturbed in the slightest. God help them if they enter the real world.
Sweet God almighty fuck! That's the most disturbing story I've ever run across on this site.
How is it douchey? She's a big girl, she made a bet. She was upset but she saw it through, good on her. She doesn't need some white knight to go easy on her.
Damn...thats a cold motherfucker to keep cutting after she started crying...
Usually when people do head shavings as bets or w/e there is like spots, uneven patches and it takes forever. This guy was in and out in like 6 min. Also, they don't know where to start or end and they cause discomfort because they press often too hard on the blades. Overall this was barber quality.
Any words now?
Yea fuck the Cowboys.
I don't understand how someone could fuck up a hair shaving. Like what could happen? They accidentally cut off hair that they shouldn't have?
She looks fine with a shaved head, and now she can try some different short hair styles as it grows back in. I feel bad that she went through that trauma, but she made a bet and I guess it's to her credit that she went through with it. If her friends are supportive of her then the new look doesn't have to be a bad experience beyond that initial trauma.
Well... they were nearly in the playoffs last year. If they had won the last game of the season they would've been in the playoffs. It's very hard to win in the NFL and being competitive is really all you can hope for. It's not like they went 2-14. I understand that they've been a disappointment for the past 16 years or so, but they've been pretty competitive lately. I don't think they'll win the superbowl this year or anything like that. But people love to hate on the Cowboys and say they suck. But the truth is that they're better than most teams, are in a tough division, and they are scrutinized more than any other team in the league. Depending on if they stay healthy, I think they'll compete again this year.
They also need to have a few lucky breaks, didn't get much of that last year.
i.e. Dez Bryant's finger being out of bounds, would've won the game. A matter of centimeters between winning and losing
at first it was really funny when everyone was laughing but then it got really dark.
Jesus man...kill kittens?
I like how she's balling and they're just snapping pictures. Seriously, why the fuck would you agree to this?
Average medium to fine haired person grows 3/4 to 1 inch per month in warm months and a bit over 1/2 inch in cold months. Coarse and tightly curly hair grow even slower, generally.
Yeah. That's going to take a while.
He actually feels kinda sorry at the end, he asked "why did you make me do it?"
NAH BRO. HE HAS TO SHOW SHAME AND REGRET IN HIS EYES FOR GERRY148 TO BE CONTENT.
Whatev. Uncle Fester got it goin' on! I'm sure it would look a lot more normal if she weren't bawling over some stupid hair.
What makes you think that?
Except Klingon is pulling that shit off.
Hey, how'd you take that sweet, perfectly-cropped screenshot?
If I was an appliance I'd be a blender.
Oh my. She was crying like she was on her way to Auschwitz or somethings. LOL, Idiot.
You said it man. Nobody fucks with the Jesus.
I'd think it was one of those bets where you say you're gonna do it, but no one really forces you to do it. Seems like everyone's an idiot not just the girl.
what the absolute fuck.
Fuckin' emotions. How do they work?
The stupid shit knew what the price of the bet was. Don't ante up if you can't pay up.
If I was a baller I'd be a big spender
But he's saying that as the friend who won the bet, he would want it changed.
I'd agree. Some people just have a hard time doing things like this to other people, no matter what the circumstance. Sure hair grows back, blah blah blah, but it's going to take a long time to get to that length again...maybe the next super bowl, at which point she can just lose another bet.
I've actually done that. I'm not insane but I do have a bipolar so it factors into it. If I laugh too hard for too long I can literally feel the emotions fighting for dominance. It's like a switch in my head is being fought over by two hands. I usually take a break from whatever it is that's making me laugh like that because it's like being on the edge of sobbing.
Another feature that human beings can have is a sense of justice. If she made the bet, she should be prepared to back it up. At her age I have no pity if she didn't think things through.
You can use command+shift+4 to select a crop area.
Traumatizing? Getting a hair cut is traumatizing. I have lost digits and didn't cry as much as this girl.
As a male, I can say that going from long hair to short hair was extremely emotionally jarring for me.
Definitely. I had long hair throughout high school and very long hair in my first two years of college. Even though it looked terrible and I was somewhat aware of it at the time, that first big hair cut was a huge transition for me. I didn't really want to go outside or interact with anyone for the first few days after the cut.
If I were a hermaphrodite I'd have no gender.
In fact, it's such a disproportionately different degree of commitment/severity, it's barely a comparison at all!
He's a man of principle
I can respect that
That was my thought too. I don't think the hair she started with was doing her any favors
She wasn't. She just said it without any forethought. I hope this keeps her from doing that in the future.
After a couple buzzes like this it is pretty easy to get the hang of it. All you really have to worry about is not going too fast and pushing down against the skin to create a low spot. Then just play it safe and don't mess up trimming on the back of the neck at the end. Guys that get straight buzz cuts without fades or any sort of fancy line ups are so much better off just getting it done by a friend.
