    Hey guys-

    I decided to grow my hair out, and I get a lot of compliments, but I'm not sure if it's the look for me. Ruthless criticism and shameless accolades welcome.

    The long hair makes you look cute, but I like the short hair the best.

    Oh, and for shameless accolades, your pic with the grey tank...yum yum yum!!!

    short, always

    most guys dont realize this, but it takes a very specific face (usually a narrow jaw-line) to pull of long hair. haha i tried for years, but with my square face, it never looked as good as i wanted.

    and besides, short hair is waaaaaay more sexy icon_smile.gif

    I vote for the longer look - it makes you look younger, more fun. The shorter look is good too - but more serious - more "employment" oriented - to me. My hair is not too short - I wouldn't call in long though - just fuller - sort of an off center tousled part.....loose - and I like that better on you - and most guys.

    But that's just me - I'm from the days when we all fought our parents for the right to have our hair a little longer than they wanted it. I like having the sort of young Robert Redford look going.

    Based only on those two pics, I'd say shorter works better for you - but I would need more evidence to cast a more solid vote.

    I've been growin my hair out for six months. Every once in a while I have this panic attack where it gets poofy and I think I have to cut it all off immediately but mostly I feel good about it. The key to longer hair, I think, is making sure you get it trimmed regularly so that it holds its shape and doesn't become sloppy.

    I cut off my long hair this past fall. It was long for years, except for the time I shaved it off to support a cancer patient. I think it made me look younger, but at 38, I thought I might finally be pushing it. It looks super-hot wisping out from under a ballcap though!

    Now I have short hair and even though I like it, I don't feel as unique (on the outside, anyway).

    I think the longer hair looks better on you though. Just one man's opinion, based on two photos (not a good sample size).

    Short is sexy. Long is feminine to me. Grew up in the 60s and 70s and that look is so tired. My nephew has shoulder length hair and he looks like John Lennon. Doesn't work for me

    I had long hair for five years and I really like it, but when I moved to Mexico I saw I'd be about as popular as *** in the bars with long hair, so when someone suggested I'd find work more easily with short hair, I got rid of it fast.

    For me, on other guys, the long hair/short hair conundrum reflects a similar sensitivity/butchness conundrum in that butch men make me hard, but sensitive men get me wet.

    I don't think long hair necessarily precludes masculinity. As evidenced by my favorite football heartthrob Tim Riggins...

    Long. I wouldn't call it long though, just full. Just don't go using a horsehair brush and Aquanet to make a helmet...

    Funny too. I have been letting my hair grow for a month and a half now. I usually just go with a buzzcut. I got complimented by my friends recently. They said they liked the 'emo' look that the hair (just past my eyebrows length) gives me. icon_eek.gif But I'm not going for the emo look! icon_evil.gif

    Anyway, I liked the short hair COJock. I've always liked short hair unless you can actually pull off the long hair! Some guys do look better with long hair - notably blondes with goatees for that viking look! yarr, or American Indians, or Asians, or dreadlocks, depends on the guy.

    However, I've never really liked Italian/mediterranean guys with shoulder length hair. They just look totally vain. Also blond boys with hair a la previous Moffats. No offense but ick. icon_confused.gif

    both pics look like short hair to me, now if your hair was passed your shoulders i'd want you to get a nice short haircut.

    You cut it already? Darn, I thought it looked good longer, even though I think it still qualified as short hair. I dunno. I like my hair longer, and I get more compliments when it's like it is currently.

    I liked longer but I'm biased, both look good though.

    Can't wait to see it. I was favoring the shorter style anyway.

    Short hair is almost invariably better. As evidenced here:

    I've come to realize that it depends on the guy. I won't deny I envy guys who can grow it out and look really good. Predominantly, I prefer guys with short, preppy-styled hair, but if they got some handsome locks going on (not Tarzan length, mind you), it may not detract me. :-)
