    Well really whether a guy has long or short hair shouldn't play a role or be a factor at all.......

    But in reality it is, you like it or don't. I prefer shorter hair on guys, but am flexible enough to avoid being short sided.

    It tells you nothing about the person you wouldn't know by other means. Try getting to know him rather than judging by appearances alone.

    It's a personal preference. I just cut my hair for the first time in nearly two years... totaling about 11" ponytail. It began when my brother and I decided to let our hair/facial hair grow during a summer in Europe. Now, I'm donating that hair to kids with cancer/other diseases which result in hair loss.

    It says less about the person who has it than it does about the person who is pigeonholing them for it.

    Agreed. And also, having long hair takes as much maintenance and money spent at the Barbers as short hair. So having long hair doesnt make you mean or tight fisted.

    every1 can say all they want about how it doesnt matter but i had my hair shoulder length for a long time and no1 ever gave me attention andguys were always like u should cut ur hair, or id get "i dont like guys with long hair"

    so i kind of came up wiht my own theory that long hair equates with feminism and gay guys are so paranoid of the word they dont want to date any1 who has anything feminine about them, after i cut my hair i get hit on al the time when i go out. so what what u will but in my experiment guys prefer shorter hair

    I don't like long hair. It's unattractive to me especially when you find strands of hair laying around. Gross.

    Long hair can tell you what society tells you about long hair. In the US, around the world and throughout history, long hair and short hair have alternately had good and bad connotations.

    During the US Civil War period, long hair and beards for men were very fashionable. Having a buzz cut might identify you as an escaped convict.

    During the 1960s and 70s very full hair with long sideburns was the standard. To have a "crew cut" meant you were either on leave from the Army, were in law enforcement, or a member of the conservative establishment. But REALLY long hair likely meant you were a hippie, a rock star. or homeless.

    Right now buzz cuts are popular with many in the US gay community, as are totally shaven scalps. Long hair tends to be the prerogative of youth.

    Point is, these are arbitrary values which are constantly changing. Long hair might suggest to you what long hair means to society today, perhaps poor and/or homeless if the person looks otherwise shabby. Or maybe the person is none of those things, just a non-conformist. Stereotypes are tricky things.

    Long hair has nothing to do with the person but their typing style on the hand...icon_eek.gif

    Glad someone said it!! When I lived in the UK my hair was longer than now, and blonder--the most common pick-up line I heard (practically every time I went out) was "What part of Australia are you from?" When I went to Washington DC with hair like that, I got a lot of attention, good and bad--I certainly got noticed because literally NO ONE else had anything longer than a brush cut.

    Now I think I'm experiencing a bit of a prejudice against it, online anyway and especially on this site. Because my hair is longer than average, I think I'm presumed to be effeminate or passive--which I'm not.

    This is good humor. All the guys that are pro-long hair, mostly young, have short hair. Ironic I suppose.icon_rolleyes.gif

    If the guy has long hair and.. he looks rather around 30, then..

    usually it means - he's not gay, he's straight or bi

    btw, could you name any long-haired GAY rock stars, please? icon_smile.gif

    Maybe it's because I'm a child of the '60s and '70s, but I like it on some guys. I had it myself when I was a teenager. If you got it, flaunt it.

    But most people thinking guys look better with shorter hair is nothing new. The day I came into college (I was in a theatre program in which everyone knew each other) with shorter hair, back when I was 19 or 20 (this was in the late 1970s), everyone said, "Alan, you look so much better with shorter hair. Keep it like this."

    Of course, my shorter hair wasn't short by today's standards. But it was shorter than the shoulder-length cut I'd had.

    Personally...I think longer or shaggy hair, provided it's well maintained (i.e. washed and brushed or combed) is really hot. Maybe it's because it's so rair to see on a gay guy. I have a couple of gay buddies who let their hair grow out a bit...usually no longer then their shoulders. One of the guys would tie it into a ponytail and it would make me blow a load just looking at him!!!! but THEN He cut his hair and I still haven't forgiven him for it...mainly because it's growing out...LOL.

    Interestingly enough, when it comes to women, i tend to like their hair a bit shorter....kind of like Hallie Berry in the third X-men film...weird how that works. Maybe I have some sort of off kilter psychological thing going on...oh well...lol

    MeanMikey saidid get "i dont like guys with long hair"
    Yes I get that from people who tell me "they don't find body builders attractive" and "you aren't going to become all huge are you? I don't like that" and I aint even anywhere near that yet.. and every time that do it, I lose a little more respect for them.. because, its not about them, its about you, its about what makes you happy and whole.. not about what some little twat thinks about it..

    Do what you want, be happy with what you have.. your life is your own... besides, I think you'd look just as hot with long hair as you do with short!

    I grew my hair long when I was 18 and except when I was traveling, I always had it to this day, done up as a pony tail when I'm outdoors.
    I grew up in a culture which was oriented to military ideals, which was at its peak at the time the British Empire came to an end, ie, in the mid sixties. At school, short back and sides was compulsory, you were favoured if you were good at games (which I wasn't) and the strict attitude of the staff was to prepare you for military service. It was at that time when my father had an older brother who was in the Royal Air Force, and who was quite critical to my parents if my short back and sides grew just a quarter inch (5 mm) above military regulation. Whenever he came to visit the family, the wearing of the necktie was compulsory, even at weekends. My 18th birthday brought a backlash against this rule, as in the UK, I was of age, and I stood up to my uncle without him even saying a word in response. His power over me was gone, and after that we became good friends before he passed away.
    My wearing of long hair is a symbol of the rebellion against nationalism, militarism, warfare, and against conforming to the idea that being a man means all this in addition to being good at team sports.

    i have seen maybe three guys in my life on which long hair was a stunning statement that i found attractive. its a personal preference thing, obviously, but i don't like long hair on men, as a rule. whether one can pull it off is not exactly the same thing as whether its attractive or not... and with that in mind, i'll say that even then, very few can manage it. too many guys with long hair look like women who don't bathe, or scraggly nerds who play too much WOW in their basements, away from the light of day. this is due to their having lifeless, greasy, stringy hair pulled back in a limp ponytail. i've seen few men with long hair who are exceptions to that. most exceptions include mullets (yes, they still walk among us... at least in cincinnati... surprise surprise lol), nasty greasy ringlets on latino men, and heinous sheets of straightened hair on effeminate black men.

    all of that being said, the examples of long hair on men actually being pulled off well included one man with stunning aquiline facial features and thick, luxuriously healthy and golden hair pulled back in a ponytail and tied with a ribbon like an 18th century gentleman (think Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire, only shinier)- he was a design student and pulled off the ribbon surprisingly well; as well as a tall asian man i saw with perfect facial structure and thick shiny layered shoulder length hair. in both cases they looked and dressed like models. their faces and hair complimented eachother. most importantly, their hair was healthy, bright, and clean. if it looks like something you'd only touch with a stick, its a no go... but if its inviting to the touch, there's hope of possibility in it working out...

    my conclusion: long hair on men is a matter of whether or not they have the looks, hair type, personal style, and confidence to pull it off well- with an inspired choice of particular cut/styling.

    It could mean anyone of several different things. For my 22 year old nephew it means he likes 70s rock, and is too lazy to get his haircut (he also hates shaving). For some guys it is a form of rebellion. I personally think men look better with well groomed short hair, or even a shaved head. Long hair reminds me of those "big hair" rock bands of the 1980s that I hated so much.
