What do women think of clean, kempt long hair on men (I'm talking down-the-back long)? From personal experience, I know some women love it, but I assume others don't and just won't say it. Are many of you just indifferent about it? I'm curious what the majority think. I'm in my 20s, by the way.

Also, what about guys that don't drink? I'm not absolutely against beverages containing alcohol, but I'm not really a drinker.

I love it!

But it does get in the way *ahem* during certain times. If you get my drift.

When I cut my hair into an Afro my then boyfriend had long dreads down his back. Quite the mashup couple we were, but I loved his hair.

I'm not a fan of long hair on men. It seems like many of them are unfamiliar with conditioner and regular trims, so they look scraggly and frizzy and unkempt.

LOL, I was dating a long-haired ex-biker and at the same time my hair kind of resembled that of the main character in the movie Brave (except not flaming red). The amount of hair getting in the way when we were in bed was beyond ridiculous - and we inevitably ended up pinning each other to the bed when we were sleeping by rolling onto each other's hair. Wouldn't change any of it though - I was so sad when he told me (after his divorce) how the woman he married after we broke up demanded he cut it for the wedding.

I was like, "It was good enough for her while you were dating, so why wasn't it good enough for the wedding? Shoulda been your first clue."

LOVE long hair on guys - at least on the ones who can carry it off. Some guys don't look good with it at all.

A man can stop me in my tracks if he has long, beautiful hair. Hopefully, it's not scraggly (if so, please get it cut). This young bum (homeless maybe, idk) asked me for $2 once when I came out of a 7-11. I was feeling generous and gave him what I had in change but I was struck by his long, luscious brown hair. Couldn't help myself.

As far as drinking, I'm all for it. My husband and I used to drink more when we were younger, hanging out at parties and such, but we never really "took" to it. We don't drink now...maybe ocasionally but it's rare. It's not the only way to have fun, btw.

As long as it is clean, well cut and conditioned I love it. It does not always suit every man but I much prefer longer hair on a man than the crew cut look for example. I have seen guys with fabulous locks, beautifully looked after and which would be the envy of many women... Rat's tails and mullets however ?!?! Pass. There is something so sexy and nice about running your fingers through a man's hair...

Yes! If they do a great job of keeping it up and maintaining/grooming!

When men wear their long hair tied back with a very nice, tailored suit! Man.. that gets my hot water boiling.
