Long hair on guys? - June 28th 2011, 12:24 AM

Hey, what do you guys / gals think about guys with long hair? by long i mean the back down to the shoulders, and the bangs around the nose / lips area. I personally like it, and this is how mine is and I am not really sure if i could go back to having short like i did for the last 13 years before i grew it out long.

Hey,

Personally, I don't like it when guys have their hair that long. I prefer a guy's hair to be short or a buzz cut. However, that is just my opinion. There are plenty of girls who like guys with longer hair. You should only change your hair if you want to.

Re: Long hair on guys? - June 28th 2011, 03:38 AM

Oh trust me, it would take me really really liking a girl to change preety well anything about me for them ( to a certain extent I am willing to change other things forany decent relationship.) I plan keeping my hair around this length, although I'm getting it cut soon because I don't like it quite this long because it gets to curly but it will still be long till college or when I'm done with college. Just wondering what people think. The biggest down side is that and the music I like constantly make people think I do drugs etc. Which I haven't and never will which kind of sucks .

Personally, I don't care what a guy's hair looks like (to an extent) as long as he's a good person and I'm into him, I could care less.
What I mean by "to an extent" is you know, as long as a guy has decent hygiene (i.e: their hair is clean and not lookin like a bird nest) it doesn't matter how long it is. I don't think anyone should change their hairstyle or anything like that for another person...if they can't love/like you for you and not your hair, they aren't worth it.

Ha oh lord do I know what you mean by the taking care of it and not having it look like a bird nest IV seen that a few times, its like oh God man if you want long hair you have to put the effort into making it look good. Btw I was looking at your profile and you have an awesome taste in music.

Glad you know what I mean.
And I've seem it too...it makes me want to grab a pair of scissors and cut their hair
Like I said, that would be a big factor in making a guy's hairstyle choice unattractive.
some people just don't care I guess

Re: Long hair on guys? - June 28th 2011, 01:31 PM

Well for the most part I agree, as long as it's well kept and isn't un-brushed or all greasy, the length doesn't bother me too much. I like guys with longer hair, maybe not that long though, but that's only because of a bad choice I made that I'm having trouble getting past with a guy with that long of hair. I could see a guy with hair that length and like him even now though. It all depends really.

I just completely melt if a guy has long hair. My boyfriend now has longer hair than mine, it goes mid back although he does have bangs because they are just grown into his hair I love it. I just love it when I guy has long hair, I don't mind guys that have short hair I prefer guys with long hair. Its like 100% times better. As long as its kept up and not disgusting and its clean.

I prefer longer hair on guys really.

My ex had hair shoulder length and he had a kind of side fringe. Here's a pic, I have blocked out his face for privacy/confidentiality.


Anything past shoulder length is pushing it but to be honest as long as it is tidy and clean then I don't mind. (My ex's hair is a bit messy but we were at a party with a bouncy castle )
I just hate it when guys have greasy tangled hair. If it looked after then it wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

That hair length. ^

Is absolutely amazing.
I have to maintain a buzz cut for personal reasons, but I will grow it out one day. Totally looking forward to it.

It's not really my preference; I like short hair or buzz cuts on men. There are a lot of girls out there who do like long hair, though.
My personal opinion is that if it's past the shoulders, it's too long. I wouldn't want to be with a guy who has longer hair than I do.

I don't mind guys with long hair. (: (I really like the length that Rachel's ex has/had.) But, as other people had mentioned, it needs to be clean and not all greasy-like.

And I'm sure you're a beautiful person. <3 Also, don't believe what all those people think you do. You know the truth that you don't do drugs. Just ignore them.<3

As long as its clean and washed regularly and kept tidy I dont mind it I'd prefer him with long hair then really short hair, like shaved off or a short buzz thing.

You should grow it long, since long hair is always awesome /bias.

Don't have it too long at the front though, part/split it so it doesn't get in your food. I know that seems a strange thing to say, but I remember being annoyed at this when I was 14 and first started to grow my hair ^^;

Awesome. Also, remember, be patient, when you first grow it out, it'll be a mess for anything from 6 months to a year, depending on how fast your hair grows. Remember, go for the girliest shampoo you can. I know at first it can be a bit embarassing buying it, but you really do feel the difference in your hair. If you have a sister, steal her's.

I think it all depends on the guy, honestly. Some guys can pull off longer hair while others just look silly

As long as it suits the person then I don't mind the length

This, pretty much. My boyfriend has short hair, but hell if I don't tend to like guys who have long or emo style hair. Mainly the emo thing because they dye it black a lot of the time, and dark hair is just hot.

Mine's exactly the same, I hate it (well actually it goes blonde in summer and brown in winter but...) I wish it was ether blonde or brown, but it's just...meh.

Anyways I like boys with longish hair, anything up to the shoulders, not below them personally though :/ And I reeally don't like it put up. But that's personal preference again.
Anything shorter than about 2 and 1/2 inches I don't really like either, so I don't like it when my bf first has his hair cut lol Til it grows out again...

I like guys with long hair. It is quite funny though that when I am hanging out with one of my friends after I cut my hair that he has longer hair than I do. My hair is way too long at the moment and I want it cut up again. Though the guy in that picture above has longer hair than I do after I cut it. :P

It kind of depends for me. Some guys can pull it off well, others.. not so much. Usually I prefer it long, but shorter than shoulder length.

I don't really mind length, as long as it's clean. Some, however, can pull if off better than others.
