So us boys went out for haircuts today, and because #1 has unmanageable, un(well)cuttable hair, we decided to experiment with a buzzcut. And of course, in solidarity (and sibling-worship), #2 got a buzz too.
The results are mixed. #1 looks great. His hair is dark and thick and dense, so the buzz looks tight, neat, confident, and aggressive. A good fit for his personality (and he loves it)! #2 on the other hand, "my sweet boy", whose hair is still blonde and fine (all genetic indicators say it won't last) looks like a poor disheveled urchin just admitted to an orphanage and shaved for lice. Unlike #1, the buzz-cut makes #2 look like he has a different personality. At least he is not bothered by it (I don't think he cares one way or the other). I think we'll just let it grow out, at least while it stays fine and manageable. If/when it turns into a horse-brush, we'll give the buzz another go.
