Where In The Hell…
Changes in The Workplace
I’m not avoiding you guys, I promise. The truth is I’ve been here all along, hiding out in the design bay producing our blog posts, emails and most everything design-related.
You see, I’ve been with The Longhairs since day one. While I’ve always been a designer, I started off processing orders and answering customer support questions.
As our team has grown, I’ve been able to narrow my focus on design, eventually stepping into my current role as Senior Designer. It’s a position I’m proud to hold, but it’s a big responsibility—bigger than I even expected, maybe—and there is still a lot of work to do.
Parting Ways With El Gustavo
Besides my new role, there was just one thing missing…a cooler nickname! Everyone around me seemed to have a clever moniker, while I kinda just got stuck with “El Gustavo.” Hey, it’s cool, but not especially creative.
Considering one of our core values is creativity and authenticity…I made the executive unilateral decision to officially change my nickname to El Gnarstavo and develop an El Gnarstavo t-shirt collection to really emphasize the point. I think it works.
The El Gnarstavo Hair Update
At The Great Cut in 2019 I cut my hair to shoulder-length, and since then I’d had just two very small trims. My hair was now past my waist, about to surpass my butt. The problem was I had a lot of split ends, hair damage and breakage due to neglect. If I’m being honest, it was kind of a mess. It was time for a trim and I felt like a lot would have to go.
I was a little nervous though. What if they butcher my hair? What if they cut off more than I want? What if they make my hair into a pinche beehive??
The Big Trim
With all the bros having a great experience there, I decided to visit master long hair barber Shelbee Shearz, who has pretty much become our official barber at The Longhairs. It was time for a big-time trim and I was ready!
Watch as Shelbee addresses my hair damage, breakage, split ends and the pesky flyaways that were driving me crazy. And of course you’ll find out…HOW MUCH DID SHE CUT?? It’s all here in El Gnarstavo’s 4-Year Hair Update.
