Standards of Beauty

Many people think that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but that is not exactly true. Studies into human cognition seem to suggest that there are things the brain is hard-wired to look for, such as symmetry in features.

For me, there is a standard by which I know it is time for my haircut. When you roll out of bed, and the person staring at you could pass for a member of the '80s New Wave Band, A Flock of Seagulls or as a very overweight Wolverine from the X-men, it is time for a haircut.
