Haircut Frequency Analysis

scissorsMy last eight haircuts have synched up with my son's last eight haircuts. I took him to get his first professional cut back in March 2005 and I had my hair cut that day to kill two birds with one stone. We've been killing birds that way ever since.

I've taken a photo of James following all eight haircuts so I took one yesterday after #8. By reviewing the metadata from these image files, I know the exact date I've had a haircut over this period. For fun, I thought I'd crunch the numbers and see how frequently I get my mop top trimmed. Here are the dates and number of days between cuts in parenthesis.

  • #8 - September 9, 2006 (77 days)
  • #7 - June 24, 2006 (69 days)
  • #6 - April 16, 2006 (87 days)
  • #5 - January 19, 2006 (78 days)
  • #4 - November 2, 2005 (74 days)
  • #3 - August 20, 2005 (77 days)
  • #2 - June 4, 2005 (83 days)
  • #1 - March 13, 2005

On average, I've gone 77.8 days between haircuts. Because we're in sync, James can claim the same. I know people who get a trim every two weeks. Clearly, that's not my preference. I like to get it cut nice and short and let it bloom for a couple of months until it's time to reign it in again.

I should be due again in late November.

Louis, you're forgetting who my target audience is. Me! As a result, this statistic is very significant.
