Sliced meat haircut

The image is a humorous meme that plays on a conversation between a barber and a client. The meme is split into two juxtaposed photographs with accompanying text above that serves as the setup and punchline of the joke.

In the first photograph, we see the side profile of a young man’s head sporting a fresh and very distinct haircut. The haircut features a fade on the sides with a colored patch on the top of his head that strikingly resembles a piece of medium rare steak in both color and texture. The patch is dyed in a gradient of pink in the center, transitioning to a dark brown, imitating the seared crust of a steak.

The second photograph displays an actual steak, cooked medium rare, showcasing a pink center which is encased in a darkly seared outer layer. The steak is garnished with herbs and accompanied by mushrooms, further reinforcing the visual parallel to the haircut in the first image.

The text of the meme goes as follows: The barber asks, “what do you want?” The client responds with, “Well, I like my steak medium rare…” To which the barber confidently says, “Say no more.”

This humorous exchange suggests that the client’s description of his steak preference was taken quite literally by the barber, resulting in a hairstyle that mimics the look of a medium rare steak rather than being an actual style request. The humor arises from the absurdity of the barber’s misunderstanding and the visual pun created by the uncanny resemblance of the young man’s hair to the appearance of the steak, complete with the ‘medium rare’ coloring. It’s a play on the viral “Say no more” meme trend where barbers take clients’ requests literally, resulting in exaggerated and literal hairstyles based on off-hand comments or unrelated topics.
