    This may be a silly post, but for me, my hair style has been my own true annoyance throughout my life. Every time I go in asking for a "short and spikey" hair style, I come out looking 14. Is there any websites that can help me out on what products to use in my thick and impossible to control hair? What celeb. hair styles I can bring in that won't make me looking 5 years younger? I like short hair styles but can't seem to find one that works well with my "jew nose" and circle face.

    Thanks!

    First off, find a good stylist! Tell 'em you want to go short enough to spike with your fingers, but not so short that the cut requires clippers. It's the super-short buzz cuts that can make some guys (including me) look juvenile.

    Also invest in some good product. My favorite is Fiber from American Crew. It's a little on the pricey side, about $20 for a small jar, but you get what you pay for. Use just a small amount and work it in from the back.

    Good luck!

    Maybe try bringing a picture of the hair style you want to the stylist.

    Personally I think you hair looks great. :-)

    I think you look great as you are, but i agree about the American Crew products. All excellent. Fiber is probably one of the best there is out there.

    At the risk of being really really really unhelpful...

    I started shaving my head seven years ago. Before that, it was long hair, short hair, this cut, that cut... But I shaved down, looked in the mirror, and it was like, "Oh right. That's what I look like." It feels great, and I hear good things about how it looks.

    I can't do short hair cuts. They make me look 14 as well. I know it might be a tad more work, but a medium length hair cut can make you look a little older, it seems to work for me. I used to try short and spikey and I just gave up. Currently longer on the top and shorter on the sides and back is showing up in all the fashion ads and magizines. This allows for easy maintenace and still keeps you away from the really short hair that just may not work.

    You know, most people, if you ask them, wish they had hair that is different from what they have. What hair I have had, over the years, was fine, soft, and straight (and limp). In my early teens (14-15), I started to grow it long, but at age 16, I started to go bald. all my life, I wished that I had courser, curlier hair, and a full head of hair. Now, I have it all shaved off(what there is of it), and people have told me that it really enhances my looks. I tend to agree. I'm liking who I am, more and more, and am losing my phobias about having no hair.

    The trick, in my opinion, is to maximize the look you have. Shit, every one of you guys posted here has great hair, and I think you're all sexy.

    I'm an interior designer, and we have been taught that man has been fighting against nature in the way he designs things. It's the same thing with our looks -- we fight nature. It has to do with media hype. We need to ignore that and just go with what we have and turn it into an asset instead of a liability.

    OMG, there is a guy out there for every one of us, who will love us for who and what we are. We need to be looking for that, instead of trying to force ourselves to be someone we're not.

    Be excellent to each other, but more importantly, be excellent to yourself.

    Love ya, guys!

    Sundown, I couldn't have said it any better. I have learned to except my nappy black hair and wear it natural, no chemicals etc. I have worn dreds, afros, cornrows and gone bald. I'm wearing my hair ala naturally nappy with a bit of product for moisture and a bit of control. Most black people don't like my hair, my mom, my boss etc. I'm not wearing my hair for anyone but myself.

    Hello everyone 1st post hear. I have had long hair most of my life. I have cut it short from time to time but always grow it back. I thing the most important thing is to find someone that is into the way you want to do your hair I have had the same hair dresser for over 20 years now. We kid that my hair belongs to her LOL. I can be difficult to find a hair dresser that is on the same page as you but your hair can be a reflection of your own personality. Some cutters want to do what they feel looks best for you rather than what you want. I cant tell you how many times I have been told to cut it all off but that will never happen. I have my own look

    Ok I am not hating so dont take this the wrong way but short and spikey, or spikey in general is so 1980s and is out right now.

    I keep seeing people wearing their hair like it's still the 80s. Yes, people it was a good time, and we had fun, our hair was kewl too but it's been more than 20 years, there are other styles now, please explore a little.

    Also pet peeve, ton of product in hair. There's nothing less attractive than touching a guys hair with my fingers only to find that what I thought was his hair was actually a nest for Alien eggs laid by the Alien Queen and now my hands are covered with goop. Goopy hands make me sad. When Troy suffers everyone suffers.

    Aaaah, a post about hairstyling on a gay website... just imagine the handwringing, the perfectionist ague and the incessant discontent about all this. The texture of my hair is really thick, heavy and dense; and styling it has been a nightmare that I seem never to be able to awaken from.
    It certainly doesn't help that I also have a large, round face, which does not look good with any hair style that I know of.
    BTW, your "jew nose" and "circle face" are totally cute. And the hair is really not a problem, either.

    All this thick, gorgeous, impossible to control hair! However will I style it!
    There's a lot of guys on this site that may get a bit annoyed at that =p

    I've actually got the same problem though. -Still- trying to find a place that I can trust to cut my hair.

    Oh, boo hoo. Thick luxurious hair that's impossible to control. Try owning a full head of soft, baby fine impossible to control hair. Does that Fiber from American Crew product work for us guys?

    When I was younger I thought Danny Pintarou was cute... He's gay too.

    My advice is find a great hair sylist, peferably a woman... They work so much better with hair than guys do based on my experience...
