Cotter Needs A Haircut, Bad...

Alright, so yesterday's game didn't go so well. Fine. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Either way, it doesn't change the fact that I need a haircut. But I'm tired of the same style I've got now (you know, the fauxhawk...don't even say it Domski, jagoff). So I'm looking for ideas from you all.

Here are some styles I've considered. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments. And hey, I'd photoshop these do's on my head, but that just sounds like too much work. After all, it's Monday. And we lost yesterday. Come on, now.

Here we go...

Vanilla Ice Circa 1991

Lest ye forget, this includes the partially shaven eyebrow.

The Emo Cut

I'd have to start wearing black eye makeup and crying a lot. But that's totally doable.

The Full-On Mohawk (ala Travis Barker)

I've been going this way for a while now, it's just a matter of pulling the trigger. But I'm a pussy. So the chances of that happening are slim to none. It would be worth the looks on my law school comrades faces, though (bad enough already that I wear jeans and a t-shirt to class when everyone else is in suits).

The Bruce Willis Bic'd Goodness

This one has no shot in hell. I just threw it in to be "funny." I have all my hair, and in fact, more of it than any one man will ever need. So I'd like to keep it that way.

The Walter Sobchak Special - Military Crew Cut

Negative, Captain. High and tight ain't fitting of Cotter's off-color personality.

So in case it wasn't obvious, I'm in need of some direction.

no mullet? WTF? It's making a comeback.

tobiathan had one in high school. No- really... said...

One word says it all:


Cotter said...

Contrary to popular belief, I do not watch NASCAR, nor do I support it in any way. And that includes the mullet. Sorry, man.

t said...

AAAAAAAAArrgggggggghhhhh....beat me by seconds!

Nice stick, Fresh.

better not make fun of tobiathan said...

In my own defense: i actually went high school in the 80's, so it was still "fashionable" know: all "business in the front, party in the back"...

Christy said...

You guys were kidding about mullets making a comeback, right?

marc said...

This is a football blog read by mostly (straight) dudes, I'd maybe say go to a site where they enjoy cute mini animals, that site most likely has more chicks and gays

Just Kidding with you tecmo...

To answer your question, I have no idea.

Get Fresh Designs said...

the mullet would be good for lawyering and such. you know it to be true.

go with the Jay Cutler look, he looks really cool.

tobiathan shaved his head in '90 n never looked back said...

do a Google for "The Thompson Twins". That'll be an awesome source of hairstyle!

PS- there were 3 of them! Wasn't that clever!?

And Christy: whaddya mean "comeback? The mullet never went out here in Pittsburgh :-)

tecmo said...


Don't be fooled by the cute and soft exterior. I'll kill you. With a weapon.


Per our email.


Or, dreds, 90s bowl cut, balding-man horseshoe, fro.

Cotter said...

I'm thinking the Coolio look might work for me as well.


The Immortal Silky Johnson said...

How about everyone's favorite kid cut?

The "BOWL"

random asshole said...

I think you'd be a great Emo. If you're against wearing makeup, though, I'll gladly swing by and blacken your eyes for you. It'll be fun for all of us.

Alternatively, grow the hair out, get it curled and go Polamalu style. That'd be awesome.

Noah said...

How could you even sleep with a mohawk? You'd wake up every time you move, lol.

I'm not much of a hairstylist myself because I just shave it all off. But you could try some of these

1. Cut it just a little and slick it all back like the old spanish dons.
2. Mushroom Cut. My friend had one of those in HS.
3. Military style around the head, fairly long on top.

-That's all I got.

tobiathan said...

Random, i love your style buddy- but sometimes i think you're stepping on my schtick...

Seriously- Cotter, it's a shame you don't have kinky hair because i think the Kid-n-Play look w/the four-foot flattop would be ideal for. And law school.

Lori said...

I think you should have a steelers logo shaved into your head. As an out of state steelers fan, I randomly introduce myself to people on the street sporting logos. It would be like the walking a cute dog in a dogpark effect.. the ladies would come a runnin'.

As far as mullets coming back... they're huge in the Czech Republic and I have the photos to prove it.

last thought: there are two kinds of long on guys.. computer programmer long and rock star long... choose wisely. Or just buzz it. whateves.

keep the gayhawk

is the rat tail out of style these days?

marc said...


When you said you'd kill me I wasn't too scared, when you said with a weapon I might have peed just a little bit in my pants.

Seriously I did laugh though.

Wow, holy comments. Thanks guys, even if most were tongue in cheek.

A few comments...

tecmo ~ Joke's on you, you don't have a weapon. I'll bet Tobiathan could outfit you with something fierce, though.

tobiathan ~ Why am I not surprised you had a mullet? And I'm gonna leave the Kid 'n Play look back in the early 90s where it belongs...

silky ~ Remember when I said I'd be flagging you for bush league comments? You've been FLAGGED! A bowl cut, dude? Who do I look like, Domski?

random asshole ~ I have no comeback to that comment at this time. Advantage, Asshole.

noah ~ I thought about the slicked back, banker look. But then I realized - 1. I'd look like a toolbox, and 2. My hair would resist that kind of thing vehemently...shit is pretty out of control most of the time. And much like me, it doesn't like to do what you want it to do.

lori ~ I've actually also considered shaving the Steelers symbol into my head. But that looks like it takes some real skill. I don't think there's anyone in this world with a steady enough hand to pull off a procedure like that.

domski ~ What did I say in the post, asshole?

marc ~ Here's where you call scoreboard. Who's winning in pick 'em and who's coming in dead last? Sorry Tec, truth hurts sometimes.
