1981. 12 moustaches & the 5 utters of ignorance - 2nd version

By 1981, it was time to reshave the "12 moustaches & the 5 utters of ignorance" haircut & document it slightly better. To quote the webpage with the 1st photos of it in progress:

"This was the 1st imaginative haircut I ever got. In the 1970s, the male porn stars all had moustaches. My logic was that if a porn star was virile with only one moustache, I'd, obviously, be much more virile with 12. So what if they were on the top of my head instead of on my face? Less abrasive during oral sex., eh?! The "5 utters of ignorance" were made from the piece of long hair that I left on the top back. I usually separated that into 2 braided 'pony-tails' that I sometimes forced upward with wire to make what looked like tv antennae. I wore a hat with a hole to enable the hair to stick through. Since they were the "5 utters of ignorance", in my 'ignorance' I could neither count them or describe them accurately."

I'm not sure who cut my hair but it was probably Sally, my girlfriend that summer. She would've also taken the photos - in this case I chose to preserve the test sheet because I liked the formal element of the different exposure times.
