I bet!

I just realized I worded my post badly. My husband (who actually did graduate in 1988!) looked adorable in his high school pic because he was 16. He'd look like an idiot now at 48 with the same rock and roll 'do. lol

On certain men, yes. Not all can pull it off.

Edited to add: I don't really enjoy making out with a guy unless his hair is long enough for me to run my fingers through.

I wouldn't have guessed this at all!

LOL, really? I'm not saying that I never find men with short hair attractive but I really prefer longer hair. The last guy I made out with had really closely shaved hair and it just wasn't fun for me to caress his...head. I think I've only dated one guy who had long hair like I like and it took me a long time to get over him because his hair was so perfect. Yes, I know that sounds shallow but if men can be into boobs, butts, etc., I can be into long hair.

Sort of agree. When anyone, male or female, does anything "hair related" because they are lazy - it looks bad. That includes people who just let their hair grow because they are lazy, or too cheap to get a hair cut.

Or men who buzz their hair because it's easier. Women who chop it off and perm it because "they don't want to fuss with it" anymore, and they've reached some age where everyone in their family and social circle cuts it short.

Laziness is hard to hide.

That said, I came of age in the 70s. I like long hair on men.

I'm tempted to post a few pics of myself (29 y/o male with shoulder length hair) just to read some reactions. When I go to work I tie it into a "man-bun" and everyone seems to think it works.

I've always had long hair from my folks (had a rat-tail when I was 8 years old!). I get a little lazy with it, and I'm sure my gf will say that I should do more to maintain it but I think I take care of it better than some of the lazy greasy guys with long hair. I condition and brush it pretty often.

I couldn't resist.. Here are a few pics I dug up.

These few were taken 4 to 5 years ago at some local races. I was a sweaty mess both years, so it's all over the place.




These about a year ago, with my hair tied back.



Another one of my hair tied a few months back.


This is a recent one at the top of Boulder. BEWARE! This one is a little bare, I have a thing for running in as little clothing as possible.


Hope I'm able to add to the discussion!

Your hair looks good. It works on you. I grew up in the 70's too so that was what looked hot to us.


Of course the Brad Pitt one would be the ideal....but he's (was) a 10 to start with.


I'm a hair person too---first thing I look at on a guy. At this point, I'm just appreciative if they still HAVE a full head of hair. Lucky me, my husband does.
