While I wish that I could personally assist you with this recording transaction...I don't have a camera available stronger than an iPhone 5...and my situation with my father doesn't allow me to get into NYC that often these days. However, I have a Flattopper friend (a former Buzzboard subscriber)...who previously resided in NYC, and likes to travel to various Flattop barbers in the tri-state area. I'll mention your Buzzlife message board post to him, to see if he an help you out...and then you can "Come On Get Happy", by sporting a Flattop again!
By the way...the video which you posted is one of my favorites! [:-)
: Clipblade back in the house.. After a half
: hour of frustrating fails trying to log-in
: using my old information I had to
: re-register and regrettably alter my name a
: bit. I've posted on this and the previous
: The Haircut Site board for years but have
: taken a couple of years off to pursue
: another hair interest of mine- the David
: Cassidy-like feathery long vintage shag I'm
: now wearing. I'm recently getting more
: frequent urges to go back to my long-sported
: other haircut of a flattop, one with a deck
: that slopes higher toward the crown to crisp
: non-tapered corners. I'm thinking the first
: week of June and because I'll probably never
: again have such an extreme difference
: between the two lengths, I'd like to get the
: transformation down on video. I live in NYC
: and plan to go to Geno at his eponymous shop
: in the West Village. I got this name after
: seeing a guy with a killer flattop with
: defined details that stood out from the
: opposite end of a large flea market lot.
: His deck sat on the head like a stage and
: was so constructed it looked like it could
: have been poured in concrete. When I asked
: for his name to give as a style reference to
: the barber he told me, "Flattop
: Dave". I'm wondering if there's
: someone who will be in the area hopefully
: with some practiced filming artistry who
: would want to accompany me with a recording
: camera. I think it would be fun to tell the
: as-yet-unseen barber that my father has for
: years wanted my girly locks gone for good
: and if I can provide him with proof of the
: process of taking care of that, there's some
: financial incentive in it for me. I'm
: usually a lone chair sitter and uneasy about
: going with somebody who's in on knowing what
: a rush it will be for me but that's offset
: by having the documented event to replay.
: An additional prodding for me is this old
: youtube video called A Haircut:
: . My hair is longer than the reporter's is
: at the outset of this clip (sic) but I like
: the way he enters the shop a beach boy
: slacker and comes out looking like he drives
: a bread delivery truck!

This board is designed to be a destination to discuss male haircuts, from buzzcuts, flattops, bald, and more!
By using this, you accept all liability for your posts and their contents. BuzzLife administration and Boardhost accept no liability whatsoever by posts, ideas, opinions, links to external sources, videos, to name a few among the vast amount of content that could be contained in said posts. Therefore, you post it, whatever it may be, you’re responsible for it. Enough said.
Photos, videos, and other content posted should involve men who appear to be of age. Any link/poster that sends images, videos, etc. of those who appear to be below acceptable age will be removed. This results in an instant ban for life
This is designed for male haircutting, and males should be the subject of the haircut. Females should not be the subject of the haircut in posts, photos, and discussions, however, females are free to join and discuss our common interests.
No sexual posts allowed. No political posts allowed.
In terms of common sense, do not post replies to such videos or photos saying things like “sexy handsome man without hair” or “better ####ing shave it next time” or any other suggestive or inappropriate comments. This only does many things. It makes the user remove the video due to being “creeped out” by said comments, look to see where the user found their video (and can see terms searched, such as headshaving, male haircut, and even links from this board). It only brings out a negative view of our community and makes us more noticeable, rather than keeping it quiet. Keeping it quiet is best, it allows us to continue sharing content without people starting to think “will I get creepy people send me stuff”. To sum it up, don’t be a creep on other people’s videos. Saying you look good such as “nice haircut” is acceptable; saying “you look sexy handsome with that new haircut :-*” is unacceptable. I cannot control what you post on other websites, but please keep your true comments to yourself, or as we often see, “This video has been removed by the user” will pop up. Please use proper judgment to keep the videos posted public for all to see and enjoy.
In addition, please try to do your best to provide reference to what content is being presented. The internet is wide, I understand that. But if you are going to post a YouTube link, write a quick thing next to the link (moptop shorn) or reference where you got an image from (i.e., post a link and the image) so we can see it easier if there is problem. Only goes to help us out more!
Be civil on the board. We’re all grown mature (hopefully) men. Let’s keep it mature and civil on here.
Be smart about what you post! If you use proper judgment, it will generally be fine. Just consider these rules before posting.
Any problems and questions, e-mail me at email@example.com
I tried to make these rules fair and understanding. They are only here to make the best for the continuation of our community. Any comments or problems or suggestions, please message me or post here.
