Yeah, I had the same thing. Hair was long, looked sleazy, not cared for and generally shitty. I cut it the bottom of the ear, did just a bit of colouring, now getting compliments that it suits me well.
ITT spineless faggots
For what it's worth, I like long hair on guys. As long as it's not greasy or anything.
Well, I have long hair and my friends and family sais that it suits me better than short hair.
On the other hand I got turned down by several girls because they don't like long hair guys. :(
Long hair on men only looks nice if it's styled with a flat iron or is naturally straight and clean-looking.
I like long hair on guys, but it does not suit all men.
It'd be one thing if in the vast majority of cases "long hair" didn't mean "LOOKS LIKE JESUS".
Nobody wants to fuck Jesus, man.
for the record, shaggy hair is good. but anywhere past the ears is kinda feral.
Mine is naturally curly. I can do nothing to make it straight...
dude not true.. you think all those black girls have straight hair from themselves?
Hair is nothing but dead skin cells. It's not like you can kill it again.
That's ignorant. Dead or not you can still fuck it up with chemicals. It's like a dead opossum on the street, it's not like you can't run it over again and make it messier.
One word: mullet. Chicks dig the mullet. Trust me.
Would an anonymous person on an Internet forum lie to you?
I have long hair but I'm gay so it doesn't matter what women think of it. Men like long hair.
It takes 100$ and 10 minutes a day to achieve straightness.
then i am wondering how you do it cause its way cheaper and it lasts for almost a month
could be different prizes in other countries tho
My boyfriend has long curly hair, but its got loads of danruff in and :/. But it suits him, so its okay.
It depends what you look like...
You know they actually put stockings on their head overnight to make it straight? Fucking true story, I was like wtf when one of them told me the tricks of the trade.
Long hair just only isn't good for you when your hair is frizzy and is excessively long. But hair past like your boobs are getting kinda... You're right, messy/dirty/lazy/whatever.
Long hair that is well maintained looks good, the same way short hair that is well maintained looks good.
Greasy, shabby looking hair looks bad, regardless of hairlength.
There's also the bit about that some people look good both in long hair and short, while as a lot of people do not look good in both, but just one. Though the kind of haircut one has with long/short length does matter a lot as well: All facial shapes are not created equal, and every hairstyle does not work with every kind of face/body style.
I had hair just passed my shoulders in a tail. Got it cut and EVERY girl I know yelled at me! Several told me I needed to grow it longer because it looked good. Darnit. I guess it depends on hair type and how much you care for it?
Hello. I usually just lurk here, but I decided to post here regarding this issue. I know from experience that trying to have long hair can be painful. My hair is naturally curly and frizzy, so I have alot of trouble maintaining it. I've had it chemically straightened, but that only works to a certain extent. I liks long hair and cool looking guys with long hair, but sometimes I just don't know what to do. Sometimes I have thought about just cutting it off, but then I would miss it. I often wonder if girls are never into me because of my hair. I'm 18 years old and I've never had a girlfriend. I'm not that bad looking, but girls just don't seem to be into me, though this was a problem back when I had short hair.
Then your hair is not entirely the problem, though it could be making it worse than it was when you had it short.
well in some cultures a lot of girls like long hair
like in Indonesia the girls love it
>>27 is right. I see a lot of guys with long hair that's greasy and nasty but they think it's cool or whatever 'cause it's long and they're imitating Sephiroth or something. Pretty gross.
And about frizzy hair, you can get a perm to bring out your natural curls and waves and toning down the frizziness.
I took very good care of my hair. It was shiny and smooth. While I may have received a handful of compliments, they were mostly from my hairdresser and mom. Most people I know pestered me to cut it. Based on my results, long hair made me even less attractive and appealing than I already had been. I also had difficulty getting a job when it was long. Maybe it just doesn't suit me?
>most Western cultures look down on men with long hair.
haven't noticed this myself. maybe by "most" you mean "your suburb".
No, it's quite true. Unless your suburb is full of long haired hippies.
I'm not sure if it actually straightens hair, but I'm African-American and my mom used to put stockings on my head when I was a kid. She pretty much just put the top of the stocking on my head and wrap the legs of it around.. then top it with a scarf to make sure it stayed. Eh, it kept the hair neat if anything.
My last two girlfriends both enjoyed my hair when it used to be long.
Long hair can be nice. I just don't like it too long on a guy-- shoulder length is enough. And for girls... the same could be said. I just can't stand it when guys have their hair shaven down or whatever, like most black guys. Nothing to play with.
I myself prefer long hair on guys. but it has to suit the person well. some people are better off with long hair and some aren't. now, the problem i believe is more important here, is the stereotype. most guys who have long hair usually (emphasis on usually) don't really take care of their hair. and their lifestyle is also associated with long hair. computer nerds, pot smokers, metal heads, w/e it may be. and not too many girls are interested in above mentioned type of people. (although, i must say that i have a thing for computer nerds for i am as well)
No, the stereotype still sticks, regardless of good grooming and hygiene.
>>40 No, I've seen guys that look good in long hair. Hm. Let me see if I can find pictures. Haha.
..That norwegian bloke's hair doesn't look bad (though possibly a different haircut would do him good), but the rest of him looks bad. Which is one hell of a pity because it wouldn't take much effort to make him look decent, and possibly quite good even.
I see, most of these pics are shaggy, not long, only Kurt Cobain and that redhead would qualify as long. Plus they're mostly celebrities. Find a real example. I had mine shaggy for a while, then it turned into something similar to that redheaded freak of nature, and I kept it that way for some stupid reason for a long time. What...was...I...thinking?
I love long hair for guys <3 !!! Sooo cute and wild.
I used to have long hair, it was never particularly clean because I couldn't care less about hygiene back then. Also I was a geek, total loser and extremely shy. Cute girls were chasing after me anyway. Only I was so shy I never acted on it lol.
I've never had a problem getting a job with my long hair. If anything it makes landing a programming job easier in my particular field, what with the hardcore hacker stereotype and all. (Of course the beard helps too.) If you really need to impress the suit types in the first interview, wear it in a ponytail or equivalent.
>If you really need to impress the suit types in the first interview, wear it in a ponytail or equivalent.
Of course women don't like long hair. It makes YOU look like a woman and like you enjoy other dudes' dicks.
Get a hair cut hippie.
>Get a hair cut hippie.
This is exactly why guys can't have long hair.
where can i get one of these "hair cut hippies" i keep hearing about? they sound like they'd go great with my beauty parlour barbie.
shave ur head
I have long hair.
I kept my hair short up until 10th grade. I looked in the mirror one day, and realized that I looked like a complete tool with short hair. All of my facial features looked completely out of proportion (nose, ears, etc), so I stopped getting regular haircuts.
Its no good. You're destined to be a goth. Or a death metal headbanger.
Considering how you feel about it, it's pretty ironic that there's a lot of people out there who would kill to have hair like your, aye?
True enough, haha. I suppose I should be thankful that I'm never going to have to worry about being completely bald when I get old.
I have always held a very objective and sound theory on long hair:
scarcity breeds probability
Locks of Love have certain criteria that have to be met, such as hair length, even when I had mine cut it wasn't long enough. It was disappointing to find out I couldn't donate it.
I seriously have this friend who in 8th grade donated about 3 wigs worth of hair to Locks of Love...
I think you should look for some native american girl. For the indians, long hair is and was the traditional standard, so they are less likely to associate it with negative stereotypes.
Of course, having the right kind of nose/color about you would also help in this regard.
I find long hair on a man very very attractive!
As long as its clean mind... :-)
Yes. Clean. So important. Groom it as if you're a girl.
I think it's not so much the fact that it's long, but if you're not taking really good care of it, it's more obvious if there's length to it.
There are few things less attractive than a guy with greasy, stringy, dandruff-filled long hair, and putting it in a ponytail or hiding it with a hat just makes it more obvious.
Personally, I find nothing wrong with long hair unless the hair is as >>65 described...If you use say, pantene and stuff, and you have good body odor to boot, then I don't see why women would dislike it...
I had short hair for years, then decided to grew it long. Due to my 'situation' I didn't really get any compliments, so had no idea if it suited me. The rare ones I got were from people probably just trying to be nice. I have fine hair so at the time I couldn't imagine it would make life more difficult, then it got windy -_- Oddly enough I managed to keep it for around a year, so again i'm someone who thinks of the good things that could've happened..I did have a relationship but due to my recent understanding of such things, was all down to personality lulz. I had it cut, but due to the nature of my hair it was done 'wrong' and looked fucking horrible for so long. I had to wait for drunk people to make fun of me to actually realise because no one told me.
I looove guys with long hair. of course, it can't be dirty lol.
I find most of the usual short haircuts guys get unattractive.
Most women do not like men with long hair - but not for the reason you seem to think. The issue is not whether the hair is well-groomed or not. Most women simply think that short hair looks on guys looks better. Period.
I got my hair cut when it was pretty long (nearly enough for a ponytail) down to really short. I absolutely hated it and practically mourned for my hair. But my girlfriend said she liked it - now I can't decide how long to keep it. Maybe I'll stay at medium to keep us both happy.
Fuck that, I'm not changing my hair just to satisfy more women. If the woman cares about that, she's the wrong one for me anyway.
CBG: Ohh... Err... Tell me, how do you feel about 45 year old virgins who still live with their parents?
Woman: Comb the Sweet Tarts out of your beard and you're on.
CBG: Don't try to change me baby.
LOL. But you're on the right track.
