No-Fail Solution for Helmet Hair

Clippers, number one guard. Hair that's 1/8 of an inch long means your helmet just can't mess it up. Looks good on men and women, although I have to admit it's still sort of a daring hairstyle for women, in some circles.

But the benefits are numerous: no time-consuming shampooing, styling, bad hair days, problems finding hats that fit...

And it feels freakin' great in the summer.

Helmet hair, believe it or not, is a big factor in whether or not some folks will ride to work. So, stop worrying about it. Cut it all off.

Why, what do you do?

You can also save money for gas and pizza by doing it your self. I see a professional just a couple of times during the summer. At the very lest it adds up to a couple of pizza's and a tank of gas.

I've got the short hair this year, but last year I had longer hair. I never had a problem with the helmet hair. I do find that when my hair grows out a little bit (1/4" ?) the liner from my helmet leaves indents in my hair. I might have to shave it again soon.

I have been using clippers since 1990 and have not paid for a haircut since.

#2 on the back and sides, blended into a #4 clipper on top./ That's my latest short hair version. Seems to work well for helmet hair.

Lucky:

as you get older you wish you had helmet hair. No problem keeping it shiny. When they say "shiny side up" they are not referring to your bike

Since it is so thin up on top I'm thinking of joining the clipper set and doing my own. Got to have momma shave my neck, but saving 12 bucks a pop sounds like a tank of fun to me. Besides, I can't see it from where I stand.

What bobskoot said. They say baldness is in your jeans, but that's the one place I actually have hair.
