1. Never Pay Good Money for a Bad Hair Cut
Surfers rarely look comfortable in a hair-salon and resent paying for the ritual humiliation. Harry has a different approach. He lets his friends attack his head with scissors and kitchen implements. The results are varied and comical but always free. “I’ve had a bowl for years. I literally had it trimmed one day to keep the hair out of my eyes. That’s how it started – my Mum would do it. Because I’ve got such straight hair and such a moon-face it evolved into a bowl. Later my mates had a barber shop in Noosa and I’d let them mess around however they liked – I was basically a hair manikin. I’ve had a few mullets where I’ve grown the back out so it’s like a bowl mullet. I haven’t done a perm yet but I’m not ruling it out. That could be my next one. I don’t really try to run the whole bowl cut thing - it’s just so practical.”
