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?
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.
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.
Holy crap! It's Elrond!
You look elvish!
Maiden effin rules man
I'd have to see a picture to know what I think.
I'd also post a pic of myself to show that long hair on old men doesn't mean pining for lost youth... except I cut it. It wasn't worth the bother.
Aces and eights. Never sit with your back to the door.
Yes. Long hair on men is traditional. Just not in the mid-century. Then it made a comeback.
