    Here are some shots of what I've had. I'm going to go for a haircut today and welcome some feedback. No mohawks as my professional work environment won't allow it, lol.

    First of all, you look good in all of them. I'm just offering opinions in regards to the "professional work environment" you specified, where I once worked myself.

    I also checked your other pics, to get a better feel for your appearance. And you look great in a coat & tie! If that's what you wear at work, or something along the lines of "business casual" (open-collar dress shirts, polos, slacks, etc) then I'd vote for the 2 middle pics, where your longer hair is parted.

    I kinda like the right one, rather than the gel look, but that's a personal preference on my part. Either one would work. The top & bottom pics are too "kid just out of high school" when wearing a tie, plus as I mention below. Unless you work at Apple or Google or someplace like that, where you prolly wouldn't wear a tie, anyway.

    Save the spike for nights at the local gay clubs. The Marine look at top says I just left the military or HS, and I haven't learned how to think for myself yet. It's also the gayest of the 4 styles (bet the Marines would love to hear that!), should that be an issue at your workplace. The parted gel look is the most conservative, what I see when Mormon missionaries knock on my door.

    You've got GREAT hair and each of those cuts looks as perfect as the next. I hate you.

    No doubt, you look great period. That said, I do like 1 and 4 and disagree they look "just out of high school". But I tend to like short and looser cuts, plus they really go with your face.

    You have a great face and beautiful eyes, so for me I think the less hair the better looks best on you -- #1 best, #4 2nd -- the other two look a bit dated

    the top picture(military style) is very NOW. Do that! you dont have to style it because it keeps its shape, so thats one less thing to worry about when youre rushing to work.icon_cool.gif

    Your profile shots show FACE hair. That's a huge consideration noone has mentioned. Your 'professional image' hair style needs to be in balance with whatever you got going on below your eyes... whats your plan for that?

    Haircuts go along with the shape of your face
    You're lucky Original you have a long face and facial hair can really look hot on you
    all the cuts look good but you show the best when the hair is up like in 2 and 4

    The left hand photo in the middle row (how are the rest of you assigning numbers? clockwise?)

    In my opinion, it doesn't look "dated," it's classic (and lickable).

    Professionally, the second one with the part on the side.

    Looks like a classic movie star from the '40's....very sexy too!

    The first and third are the best (forget the rest). Spikes and slick parts are so out! You can pull off the "Brad Pitt" look with what you are doing...awesome!

    I would have to say I like number one the best, the other two don't do you justice and, unless you plan on joining backstreet boys, I would sugrest dropping the spikes icon_lol.gif

    Am I too late? I like the top and left pics the best. The left pic is hot with a suit and tie!

    I really like number 3. It looks great on you - (also on me!) and it doesn't look to moosed up or slicked down. Very natural - a good look. A classic look.

    Number 1 is also good on you- sort of your Camp Pendleton look!
    Number 2 is fine - but it reminds me of "the new guy" at work.
    Number 3 is my look - and so I'm biased!
    Number 4 is good - but for after hours at the clubs.

    I'd stay with number 3! I get a lot of good comments on that look. Guys like it because it looks so natural - like you don't spend all your time fussing with it. Girls like it because they think it looks great. But you will have to do what you like best!

    I like the last one (on the bottom) the best. I think it really speaks as to who I perceive you are.... the earlier ones.... the one at the top is fine, I kind of like short hair, so its nice.

    The pic with your hair parted on the side is probably the one I like least.
    Its not that its conservative, its kind of dated and doesn't add anything.
    The one with the part in the middle is fine.

    Whatever you choose, I'm sure you will look great....

    Ok guys, I took a risk when i arrived at my barber shop to find it closed for the day. I still wanted a cut and I am sure many of you realize how risky a proposition this was, lol. I live in a place called Squirrel Hill outside in Pittsburgh which has the largest population of Jewish people in the country outside of NYC (so i am told). I love living here, but now you can understand why I settled on an old Russian Jew for the haircut, he was the only other barber I could walk to from home. (I have a car but like walking around sometimes)

    Needless to say, the cut is bad version between the crew-cut and spiky version in my original post, lol. I got hum and half my head had hair longer than the other, my right side as a spot shaved deeper than the rest and my co-workers got a kick out of the back, whatever it is. I'll take a few pics in the morning and then off to get another cut. I typically avoid the chain hair stylists places, but I may have to settle.

    Keep your look that you have in your primary pic with the suit/tie. Looks very sharp and sexy. Makes you look younger too, and there is nothing wrong with that. icon_smile.gif
