Yes, providing for my family was foremost on my mind, but in retrospect, I have to admit that cutting my hair at that time was more of a knee-jerk reaction than anything else, and probably completely unnecessary. I'm sorry that you're dealing with uncertainties regarding your own employment. You and I are both at a point in our lives and careers, where I believe our professional skills should stand on their own merits, and eclipse the superficial concerns of some potential employers.
My youngest son (who will be turning 6 in August) had been going through a period of intense fascination with various superheroes, most of whom were short-haired. He consistently stated his desire to get his hair cut short to resemble them for about a year. Once it was done, he enjoyed it for a few weeks before expressing his regret, and has since been resolute that he "will never get [his] hair cut short again." It was interesting to see his hair transform instantly from "curly blonde" to "thick brown." Kudos to you and your wife for giving your son the freedom to express himself authentically, as well.
