The closest place is campus itself. I myself have longer hair but many of my friends are excellent and experienced hair cutters who have worked with short hair. If you prefer a professional do Vision’s Hair Salon in town is another option.
A couple weeks ago we had the first Coffee Hour of term. For those who don’t know, it’s a tradition on Sunday nights for everyone in each house to get together and share food, announcements, issues, and laughs. In my house, Woolley, the theme for coffee hour that week was Rumspringa — the time in the life of an Amish youth when they leave their homes and (from my understanding) go and do pretty much whatever they want, then decide at the end whether or not they want to go back home. In the spirit of breaking free, and because my hair was getting PRETty shaggy, I came with a pair of scissors, and at the end of coffee hour asked everyone to take a snip:
30 people. 30 snips. and I believe we coined a new term in the process: Mull-hawk. Half mohawk, half mullet, all fun.
1. I think your best bet is the Bennington website for info regarding everything from academics/the plan to housing and student resources. Our curriculum can also be found online under the “students” section of the website.
2. I’d be happy to chop yer hair when you get here! Trade you a haircut for some sweet potato fries w/ mayo anytime (you’re on your own for shampooing though).
