Daniel Snyder Loves Haircuts, Too

In my more despondent moments, I've been known to remark that my job consists largely of trying to take photographs of the haircuts of D.C. athletes. I mean, this is sports we're talking about. Not hair cutteries. Not "Mohawks Today." Sports. The two are separate.

Well, maybe not. Not after the most important sports figure in this town, one Daniel Snyder, shows interest in entering the hair cutting business. Via friend and neighbor Dave McKenna comes news of Rollercoaster Cuts, "a truly unique children's boutique" at some Six Flags parks, where kids "will be treated like royalty from the moment they enter the brightly colored salon boutique." Mohawks for everyone! Mohawks and mustaches! Plus half-priced Zorn-style cuts! Hot air for the blow dryers will come straight from the Redskins TV studios! McKenna writes:

And, for anybody wondering if Snyder is indeed behind this cuckoo plan, anybody who agrees to be employed at the salon will get a "$350 SIGNING BONUS!" (caps and exclamation point all from Six Flags)....

Anybody wanting to work for the firm can call 1-860-233-CUTS and leave a number, and, according to the taped message, a "Thrill Ambassador" from Six Flags will be in touch. Wonder if that means Vinny Cerrato.

Maybe they can even do some cross-marketing, offering exclusive Redskins fashions.

The Jason Campbell: A Close Shave, which later turns out not to be close enough.

The Jason Taylor: A dramatic Fade.

Shawn Springs: You like Bangs? This style's all banged up.

The Vinny Cerrato: Ah yes, the Permanent.

(Full disclosure: My daughter got her haircut for the first time last Saturday at Rockville's Cartoon Cuts, a similar concept that was mobbed with toddlers from the second it opened on that day. And if there was a Coaster Cuts closer to my house, I'd probably have gone there. Why not?)

The Chris Cooley: Shaved too close, this style shows too much skin.

The O-Line: Though it looks impressive, this style tends to get knocked around in anything above a gentle breeze.

This is a great idea. I remember when I was a kid, whenever I went to the amusement park, I would get tired of riding all the super fun rides and think, "Man, I wish I could get a haircut right now."

We took our 2-year-old daughter to that Cartoon Cuts in Rockville once. Then we realized that the Hair Cuttery three stores down would give her the same haircut for a fraction of the price in half the time with no waiting around watching Thomas and Friends with the chaos of other toddlers setting bad examples for public behavior.

Plus, Hair Cuttery has the coveted Alex Ovechkin endorsement...

The Joe Gibbs: A part down the middle, right part awesome, left part half-finished.

The Dan Snyder: too short, but over-compensates with a glittery Burger King hat.
