Absolutely not in the Winter around here. Way too cold even with a hat. Better to have a standard haircut than a buzzcut...

I think it's fine, but I also get the impression some guys with buzz-cuts are insecure about their hair. That's not to say guys should be prima donnas about hair, but when mixed race guys who are lighter skinned, such as Derek Jeter or Vin Diesel wear them (even if it works for them), It makes me think they're ashamed of their black side and want to appear as white as possible (i.e. hiding away any possibility that they might have very tight curls and/or a coarse hair texture that are considered black traits). I could be wrong but it seems they might think they'd appeal to a wider audience by portraying less of their black side.

Also, in general, I'm curious as to what many guys' hair tends to look like. Is it curly, wavy, straight? I do like if a guy is confident enough to reveal nice, loose, curls, (i.e. Henry Cavill), slightly longer hair (i.e. Christian Bale), decent long hair (i.e. Jason Momoa), a tousled look (i.e. Robert Downey Jr.), or a even a basic preppy cut (i.e. John Krasinsi). Men's hair is underrated and IMO shouldn't be limited to a single style.

Either buzzed/bald or long hair for me. Not really a fan of the mid length longish hair some guys have now a days. Too emo, IMO.

Same here. I think it's too macho. It's definitely a jock hairstyle.

I think they tend to look better on dark-skinned guys than light-skinned guys.

This is my two sons and I. I'm wearing glasses. 70 years old. My wife likes it and I like it. That's all that matters, right?

Not a fan. The type of men that gravitates to a buzzcut tends to be one that I do not find appealing. The whole "men in uniform" thing has an opposite effect for me.

Either go completely bald/shaven or a reasonable length.

In the eyes of a lot of people men are wrong no matter what they do or how they look. The moment they were born male they were automatically wrong, if they have long hair they look like girls, if they get a buzz cut they are thugs and if they get a stylish haircut then they are pretty boys so they lose no matter what. I say get your haircut they way you like and be happily wrong.
