One thing I always wondered about is when men started growing their hair long in the 60's many people freaked out, but if you look at history ,men have always have had very long hair.didnt these people ever study history or look at paints from centuries past??

I don't know, but for some reason I have a very strong reaction to seeing men with long hair, especially if it is in a pony tail. It drives me nuts, though I know it shouldn't. I just want to duct tape the man to a hair and shave his head. I am just convinced he would thank me after once he realizes how much better he looks.

Some did. Then there were the Romans, who cut their hair short because they associated long hair with barbarians. It was a class thing.

I like the look of long hair on a man, if it's nicely cared for and clean, though I've never dated anyone with it. My all-time favorite photo of a pro athlete is of Chris Simon in the late 1990s. I'd get to the arena in time for the pre-game skate just to watch him skate around without a helmet. The man was beautiful.

I just wish this whole "man bun" thing would go away. Only man who should be wearing a bun is a Samurai. Just my opinion, and I'm sure there will be people who disagree. But the way I see it, if he has nice hair, it deserves better than to be shoved into a messy, ratty knot.

No, they didn't study history. The long hair fashion came on the heels of an ultra-conservative post-WWII culture where short, quasi-military cuts were the accepted style. Young men who wore their hair very long in the 60's and after were rebelling against the hyper-conservatism and conformism of that post-War period.

Where is a hair bun for men popular? I haven't seen that. But I would agree; if a man has nice long hair, he should wear it down. Or in a braid or pony tail, depending.

I saw a hair bun on a waiter just this afternoon. I'm not a particular fan of it, either. Actually, I don't care for long hair on men generally, but if they do have it I'd rather see it worn loose. Although for those working in the food service industry, of course tied back somehow.

Like every style, the main impetus is simply to look different from the preceding trend.

One question: When you think of a very wise old man (historical or fictional), what does his beard and hairstyle look like in your mind?

Exactly....

It's very fashionable now, thanks to Jared Leto.

20 Man Buns That Will Ruin You For Short-Haired Guys

It's part of this whole lumbersexual thing that is equally obnoxious, with the big beards that look like there are probably entire colonies of beetles crawling around in them.

I'm convinced these guys are going to look back on this in 10, 15 years much the way people looked back on 70s-era bell-bottoms in the late 80s and 80s-era shoulder pads in the late 90s, like, "WHAT were we THINKING?"
