Men-grown out hair - April 29th 2015, 03:11 AM

So I was thinking of growing out my hair, like super long. Ive enjoyed super short hair, because its low maintenance and keeps me cool, but to me, it takes away some personality from my appearance. I think long hair on guys is cool, and theres this guy with gorgeous, long black hair in my dorm (don't know him, just love his hair). I'm blonde, and I think it could be really cool to get it really long. Talking like, middle of my back long. but my hair tends to grow out instead of down, so how could I change that?
This isn't like some kind of breaking "gender norms" kind of goal (my parents will think that, but no), I just really like long hair. My ideal girlfriend would be Rapunzel.
Edit: looked at some pictures of guys with super long hair, perhaps shoulder length is good.

What advice are you looking for? Tips for growing it out or feedback on long hair? I personally like both hair lengths on guys, and I think that people should just do what makes them the most comfortable. In the time I've dated my boyfriend, he's had really long and really short hair. He now prefers short because it's a lot less maintenance and easier to make look "professional," but he had shoulder length or longer hair for two or so years. For tips, eat a healthy diet so that your hair is strong, and still trim it frequently. They say like every six weeks, but every three or so months is sufficient.

My boyfriend has about shoulder length, maybe a bit shorter at the minute. He's had longish hair for the entirety of the time I've known him, and he never really does anything with it except stick a hat on it. It grows out and then drops if that makes sense because his hair is so curly. What I would suggest is waiting it out, your hair will grown down but it may grow out at the start, wait for gravity to take it's toll, wear a hat, whatever, it'll get there I really like long hair on guys, I see what you mean about the personality thing. I agree with you



Take as long as you need.

So until its shoulder length, and while its growing outwards, I should wear a hat?

You could always invest in some hair straighteners

I suppose I could, but I'd probably get made fun of and Ive read that heat in general is bad for your hair. I even read that cold showers are preferred for hair health. I don't actually know if thats true but thats what I read.

People will make fun of you for having long hair as well, people make fun out of everything that isn't the norm, you get used to it though.

In the end, do what ever you feel most comfortable with, the awkward short hair - shoulder length stage doesn't really last long at all.

Sup, Jesus. I don't know, my aim was to have a Led Zeppelin type look (which to be honest, doesn't make sense, I don't create musical masterpieces) that makes people like, "Whoa. That dudes so real its mind blowing. I'll bet he does really important shit." And its not as though I'll look like a girl, my body would look pretty good with this look I think, same for my face. i.e. I definitely look like a guy, even if I had long hair.
By the way Jesus, if your not busy, can you just make my hair long already and skip the awkward stage?

Mission aborted. The finished product would have been great, but the middle part was terrible; I looked stupid and it trapped a lot of heat.

Hey,

If your hair grows out rather than down maybe you could use some products to weigh your hair down a little, chances are once it has a little more weight it will start to grow down. I have really thick curly hair, so if I cut mine it tends to grow out for a while so I just had to use tons of products for a while.
