Enlisted

Looks like Joel decided to ditch being a professor and join the army.

At least, that's what the chick that cut his hair last week thought.

He totally procrastinated getting his hair cut until the very last minute, and went early in the morning the day school started. I got a phone call a little later that morning, and heard Joel on the other line say, "Lara. Something devastating has happened."

I was thinking he'd wrecked the car or something.

But it was worse.

His curls were gone.

Luckily, bad haircuts have a way of righting themselves quickly enough. I'm afraid this one is going to take a lot more than just two weeks, but his curls will be back eventually.

And for now I giggle uncontrollably every time I see him.

For that matter, he giggles uncontrollably whenever he passes a mirror.

I mean, wouldn't you?

  2. Doesn't look bad but i can how devastating it would be at first.. He has WONDERFUL curls!! The fun of trying to find someone good to cut your hair in a new place. Cross them off the list! :)

  3. Oh man! I would be sad about those curls too. He has GORGEOUS curls. Like *I* envy his hair. Plus it makes him look very music-professor-y! I'm sure they'll be back soon.

  4. I think he looks great! Not as good with the curls, but good.

  5. Okay I will be honest here....I would laugh too. I would miss his curls as well! My husband and boys all have this type of haircut because they have no hair!

  6. LOL! I'm really not so sure the Army would even take him with that haircut! I mean, they have regulations and stuff, and well, this is just bad. Did he double check to make sure the girl cutting his hair was actually licensed to do so and not like the janitor or something?

  7. I think I'd be tempted to rub his head every time I passed.

  8. Funny Story, Ryan just came in and sat down next to me and after a few minutes of not paying attention to the computer looked up to see the image of Private Joel. He said "who in the world is that?" I answered "Joel Neves" He said (and I kid you not) "I thought he had curly hair?" :-)

  10. It's not too bad, but...yes, it makes me giggle, too. :)

  11. His expression in the first shot makes me laugh.

  12. Oh that is so sad... Matt lets his hair get too long and then he will go in and say, "just clean it up a bit." He usually comes home with no hair. The drama... LOL!

  13. LOL! While we were in Newfoundland we got one of the missionaries to cut Doug's hair. It was so short, he didn't have to get it cut again for about six months.

  14. It could be worse. He could call you and say, "I walked out of the stylist's place with DeNae's husband's hair. Or should I say 'hairs'? He has exactly four."

    Poor guy; he'd kill for Joel's "problem"!!

  15. Oh man!! I hate it when that happens.

  16. It doesn't look that bad. LOL I don't think he can escape his curls. Bad haircut or not...

  17. I think he looks great no matter what his hair looks like . . . except maybe if he had a mullet . . . :)

  18. Welcome to the MTC Elder Neves.

  19. You take excellent pictures! I think he looks pretty good but I hear you about losing the curls. That part is devastating for me.

  20. The fro will return.
    It always does.
    (insert giggling)

  21. I hate when that happens.

    Tell him I was trimming Ryan's hair once and then snipping around the ears and WHOOOPS...FIRST, I had the trimmer set lower than I realized and made a very very very short road through the back of his head. THEN, I snipped his ear (big time) with the scissors.

    I wasn't cut out for doing hair (ha, get it...cut out.)

    Bring back the curls!!! :)

  22. He's cute in spite of being devastated and think about this...
    At least he still has hair ! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  23. Funny stuff! Glad he's a good sport about it.

    And at least he's got short hair to begin with, so he won't have to spend the next 2 years growing his way out of a bad haircut! (As I'm sure every woman—and long-haired guy—has experienced!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, at least he can say he's "started from scratch!"

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh. My. Gosh. That's hilarious!!! Chad would be proud!!

  26. We have a hard time with Jeremy's haircuts. He is balding and that makes it a bigger problem. Trying to get a clean cut with taking off too much in certain places. Tell Joel he is lucky. At least his WILL grow back. He is such a good sport to model for the blog :O)

  27. There is a truth universally acknowleged, that Joel Neves needs curls. It's what makes the girls go crazy for him. Anyway...good thing they will grow back, but it doesn't look that bad. Ah, finding a new place to get your hair cut. I've been here for 6 years and I'm still seaching for my haircut home.

    ReplyDelete
  28. He looks great anyway! Luckily hair does grow back. It could be a nice change?

    ReplyDelete
  29. He definitely is almost ready for the military. I can't believe no curls. Mike now has curls and a beard, I guess they have changed places.

  30. It's not THAT bad, but I know what you mean about the curls. I hate cutting Joshua's off and his aren't even as good of curls as Joel's.

  31. That's strange. I could swear that the girl who cuts hair like that works at Evan's in Cedar City. LaVerl just got that very same haircut last week. I salute him every time I see him. :)
