    Or ponytails, or Fedoras. A middle aged white guy with a ponytail playing harmonica wearing a Fedora can only be worse if he calls it a "harp". Just don't.

    Agreed. It nearly always looks dumb, and in the worst cases, they look like grandma

    Really not a lot of guys can pull off the longhair thing, regardless of age.
    Same with the shaved-head look. Both just look bad on most guys

    I do feel bad for balding guys.

    But facts is facts.

    There are two kinds of men; those who think they look good with long hair and those that know better. Unless one does not believe that there are those two types, or if your mileage varies.

    Hey I sort of resemble that remark!

    I have a "mullet on steroids"

    Short on top, with a pony tail almost to my waist. Or another way to put it, "business in front, party in the back"

    I always wear it in a pony tail, so the mullet never gets freed.

    And I also have lamb chop side burns.

    I don't wear a fedora, though. Ever.

    So my question back, why does it bother you so much? Are you "follicularly challenged" and just jealous? :D

    Cheers,
    Doug

    I'm now in my forties and I've got my hair long again. I'm at an age where I don't care what anyone thinks and as long as it's not a problem for my job, which it isn't, I'm keeping it. From the compliments I've received, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who thinks it looks good on me.

    Oh, and

    There are two kinds of men. Those that feel compelled to bore everyone with their opinions and those that mind their own business.

    How long do you allow?
    Mine is a bit long and kinda messy but pretty much stays above the collar.
    Is that OK?

    Agreed, and its even worse for those of us with a few excess pounds. Since I entered middle age my hair has three lengths. 1. just got a haircut; 2. a bit shaggy, could use a haircut; and 3. holy crap I look just like my mother! I try to avoid #3.

    I'm an old guy and I have the longest hair in the band. And our drummer is female.

    So there! :D

    There was an older guy with long hair at the grocery store the other day. Everything he did had no impact at all on my life. I left the grocery store and haven't seen him again. I didn't even think of him again until this thread came up.

    The nerve of that guy.

    I'm in my forties and recently divorced. I'm growing mine out because no one can tell me not to. Well, my boss maybe - if I let him, but as long as I keep it neat, I'll be alright.

    This coming from a guy who's been buzzing his own hair on the back porch for decades. I like feeling it in the breeze again. And, at 40, I'm happy to still have it.

    I haven't gotten any compliments yet though. . .

    So balding guys should just look like sort of monk? There's no need to feel bad for balding guys, it's just hair. You'd think they were suffering from inoperable cancer.

    I've got long hair. Nose and ears only...:(

    Haven't used a comb in years, I keep what I've got like a summer lawn. Ever seen grey grass though?
