I'm feeling a bit wooly mammoth-like, at the moment, desperately needing a haircut. I always like to say 'short in the summer, long in the winter' as if it really matters for warmth purposes. In all reality, it's just an excuse for pure laziness on my part. But I've never really found that one specific barber shop for me, so I'm not always eager to run out and get it done.

To be fair, it doesn't even need to be a legit, stereotypical barber shop. I'm just on the hunt for someone who can be my go-to guy or gal when it comes to cutting my hair by default, meaning I don't need to go looking for someone when I'm ready. I can just consistently go see them and get it done, and even better, won't have to tell them how I want it done every time because they already know. Know what I mean?

I'm not the only one who hasn't found the one for me, yet. A Reddit thread started by u/gentlehippi asked the same question: Where are the best men's haircut places in town? He's looking for somewhere, in his words, anywhere in Fort Collins or Loveland that isn't too expensive. And wouldn't you know it, the people of Reddit responded.

Like anything else, you're going to find some who love certain people and places, and some who don't so much love them. I suppose that's all a matter of taste and preference, and of course, a customer's actual experience.

10 Artists With the Most Iconic Hairstyles in Rock + Metal

Hi, my name is AJ, and I am the vocalist of the horror-influenced metal/rock band We're Wolves. When I'm not creating and playing music with the band, I am a licensed professional barber in Boca Raton, Fla. I've been in the industry cutting hair professionally for eight years.

It has always been rad to see how trendy haircuts are interconnected with music. You can tell a lot about a band just by their hair.
