I am currently almost done growing my hair out in a style reminiscent of Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.  It's thick and curly like Hayden Christensen's, but with little more blond.  I'm a young man and I have a baby face on top of that, so it's not like I'm a creepy old guy trying to look young.  A few of my older relatives don't like it, but I've gotten compliments from at least a couple people I know. Opinions?

For some of us it does.  My hair does it, naturally.

 

There is not one drop of pomade, cream, hairspray, or anything else in my hair, today.  And it hasn't been combed since this morning.  Yet it goes into that same style, naturally.  I've been growing it out as a Christmas gift for my mother, this year...she wants to see me with "long" hair, again.

Except I don't have the best face and hair for such haircuts. It needs to be a little bit longer for me, as gel and other products simply won't work, as my hair is too weak.

Made funnier by the fact that he is not wearing any one of the three. 

I've kept it pretty close to the scalp in recent years, but that wasn't always the case. I started wearing it long in high school, and kept it that way for too long. My 80's hair unfortunately hung around into the late 90's. Done right, it can look good, and quite frankly, if you combine long hair with a guitar and a bar band, it can make you quite popular. Or, at least it could when I was still young and stupid, and people still went to bars to listen to live music.

When I finally got it cut off, it was, literally and figuratively, a great weight lifted from my shoulders. Long hair is high maintenance and after a while becomes more of a liability than it's worth. Plus, it comes back to haunt you down the road in the form of embarrassing school pictures.

I'd like to forget 1987 in particular...

Hah!  Charlie's Angel, without the figure.  Such is the nature of following fads ... you'll look like a dufus in pictures 20-years down the road.

Well at least you had the hair for it!  My awful longhaired senior pic would stop clocks. Atomic clocks.

Bah. Feckin' amateurs ..... 

Holy crap!  It's Elrond!

It was '93 and I played bass in a metal band. That was the day I cut it off. The ponytail was 19 inches. You can see in the hairline there why I cut it and what the inevitable outcome was going to be. 

You look elvish!
