I think I look a lot better with alternative styled clothes, hair, etc. During the “shelter in place” and “work from home” phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, I was sporting a mohawk (one that I almost never spiked up properly) and a little facial hair (according to the references I’ve reviewed, it was a “circle beard“). I thought this look was a more accurate representation of “me”.
On the other hand, I had a couple of job interviews this year. It was difficult to style whatever hair I had to work with into a professional look. I tried, but it was still awkward. So, I’ve been growing it back out, and it looks fine, but I’m disappointed – and tempted to switch back!
