How Long Is Too Long? - April 3rd 2010, 05:13 AM

Well, I've been growing my hair out since about September 2008, and well my hair is quite long, longer then a lot of girls hair lol. I was curious to what people think is "too long" Right now my hairs about at my collar bone. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated

I love long hair on guys. It dosen't suit all guys though. Oh and I think that if your hair went down the floor, that might be a problem.

Personally, I wouldn't date a guy with hair longer than me lol. But I actually kind of like long-ish hair on guys, like around the shoulder. Beyond that is pushing it a bit though.

Yeah most likely I'm probably just going to keep it at the shoulder length, it's good headbanging hair :P

I agree with the others, past your shoulders is too long, but long hair on certain guys is nice.

Oh god, I've got this friend with his hair about 10cm above his waist. It's absolutely lush - I just can't keep my hands off it. Literally. Beware of people armed with hairbrushes and the intent to plait.


We all need some extra self confidence... so...

It depends on you. If you can pull it off then go for it.

My boyfriends hair is shoulder length when straightened. My friends hair is past his shoulders by his armpits. Another friends is waist length. They each suit it but my boyfriend wouldn't suit waist length hair and that friend wouldn't suit shorter hair. Every one style is different.

I do love guys with long hair as long as the look after it. I can't stand greasy hair and guys who never brush their hair.

Haha, my boyfriend's hair is only recently shorter than mine, I love long hair on some guys as long as it doesn't get in the way.

I agree with Rachel it does depend on how you look. For example Justin Bieber or Zac Efron would look a complete tit with hair past their shoulders but there are all the men in metal/rock bands who can pull the look off. You said you were a metalhead so I'm going to assume you can pull off long hair.
I think Axl Rose has a good hair length

I don't think there is a how long is to long. It depends on you, let it grow until your annoyed with it lol, then once it's getting on your nerves get a few inches chopped off, thats what I'm doing atm.

lol thats probably what I was going to end up doing, let my hair live until I can't grow it no more :P But yeah, more then likely I when I get sick of it i'll get it all chopped off, which will be a huge change for me

It really depends on you and what looks good on you, but in general I wouldn't say much past shoulder length.

This is what I'd consider a pretty good general length, though depending on the person and style it could be longer or shorter

I either like really short hair, or long hair. Not so much in the middle...

I honestly think it depends on a few things.
One: Color. I think people with blond hair can pull off the long-hair thing a lot better. As long as it's kept clean, it's hot!
Two: Style. Dreds. Cornrows. Etc. Looks awesome long. Like the guy from Korn. He has wicked long dark dreds, and it looks amazing. With dreds, the longer the better, ya know?

But as far as regular long hair, I think shoulder length is good.
