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?

Keep it neat, and I see no problem. Mine's about 6 inches long, black-brown and straight. I usually either slick it straight back or build it up into a pompadour, for when I've got the energy to do so. Neatness, rather than length, is the best determining factor.

Agreed, I hate the "I just woke up" look.  Especially since I look like I should be with the Flock of Seagulls when I wake up.  It's a little wild because of the curls, but no cowlicks or eye-covering.

Unless you're a Duck Dynasty cast member ... I vote no.

Really high, barely tight ...

Heh.  What he lacks in whitewalls, he makes up for in elevation alone.  The actor that plays Swanson said all he needed to understand the character is to figure out that he looks in the mirror every morning and thinks that hairstyle is just right.

looks terrible.

Outstanding cut.  One of my favorites.

 

Do I see MARPAT?

It all looks like buzz cut to me, barely any hair left to even call it a name.

a buzz cut is the same length all over.  That soldier has hair on top, and stubble on the sides...a significant variation in length.  And the blending between the two lengths is smooth and natural.

 

The fact that the sides were taken to a point above the parietal ridge means it is a high-fade.  The shortness, in barber parlance, is described as tight.

 

Hence high-and-tight.

Interesting; hair does not do that without something added. Funny his character would use product, but then it's part of what makes his character funny.

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.

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...
