Well, I used to be a metal head. Had long a** hair back then, looked like a dork.
First girlfriend dumped me after 2 years, she was really into the scene look at that time, decided to let her style my hair so I could try to get it back. Let that evolve on it's own for the next 2-3 years till I was good enough at it that people started calling me fake and demanding to see me on webcam.
Cut it before my senior year of college to look more professional, finally got the look down right after about half a year.
