Men and Their Hair: One Woman’s Opinion


I have liked long hair on guys for as long as I can remember. Blame the eighties rock and roll scene if you want. I still like the look if pulled off properly.

Lately I keep hearing haters disparage the ‘man bun’. Personally, it doesn’t bother me. People should be able to wear their hair however they want. Would you begrudge a samurai from the Edo Period his chonmage?

And for these styles in particular I approve for two simple reasons. For one, alternatives on how to wear long hair means more men might do so.

No Complaints Here
Also, you know the old saying, ‘let your hair down’? Yeah. I want to be there when some of these guys do that. And I’m talking to you hot dudes at my gym.

To Quote Joe Cocker, You Can Leave Your Hat On
Just don't do comb-overs, fellows, please. At that point let. It. Go. Or if you can't, and I understand, just don't expect to be taken as seriously as this guy:

 What’s your opinion? Long? Short? Up? Down? Do you care?

  1. My brother wore his hair long throughout the '90s. Unfortunately, he didn't keep it up well. Now he keeps it shorter (although for a while he was shaving his head). As I've never had a SO, I haven't given it much thought beyond this.

    1. We have a friend who wore his very long until he went bald on top and started shaving his head. That can be a powerful look, too. That's interesting that you don't have a preference. Be well!

  3. I have liked long hair on guys since the late 60s. In the 70s, all the guys had long hair. Bill's was elbow length. I still think long hair is fine on guys, if it is masculine. No, to buns...even if they really do wear a helmet. Get a helmet that fits, guys. Just sayin'. Hugs!

  5. I am old fashioned, I like it short. Plus I get jealous if a man has longer hair than mine :)

    1. Thanks for the weigh in. ~snicker~ I know what you mean about jealousy. My shoulder length hair had to go, it got so fine it looked crappy long.

  6. I like men any which way, long, short, don't care. I have been in love with a lot of long haired men, however, who have worn it well. Captain Picard's smooth skull is sexy too, however!I just don't like mullets.

    1. Nice, my dear. You are aligned with my way of thinking. Not a fan of mullets, exactly, I never really minded at the same time. In high school all the soccer players seemed to wear their hair that way and I had no complaint with those legs to look at.

  7. Long hair on men is fine (hell, I had mine long through college, so I can't really judge), but I don't like man buns. Some top knots I have seen in Samurai movies are OK, though sometime I don't like how those look, either. I wouldn't disparage someone from wearing one, but I just think they look terrible.

  8. Absolutely long-hair fetish! Why, even my son grins at me when we see a guy with long unruly hair on TV! Hehehe yep - I'd def blame it on the 80s. Hugs! Now I blame YOU for making me drool at the images I am googling right away!

  9. I don't care. People should wear their hair the way they like. But. Some hairstyles look better on certain people and certain people can pull of some hairstyles better than others. Jim Morrison looked pretty good with long hair.

    1. One more reason to like you, my dear. And you have a way with understatement describing Jim Morrison that way. ~grin~ He looked godly in that one famous photo shoot. Be well!
