But lately, I've seen these designs 'etched' in to hair:
Do they freehand them? Is there flash you can look at to decide what design you want? This would be a great alternative for me!! I could have what ever struck me at the moment, and wouldn't have to worry whether I'd continue to like it or not because it'll be grown out in a few weeks anyway. But I think the key here is having pretty short hair in the first place, and I'm not sure I'd look all that great with a buzz cut.
