    And looking like a fist with eyes is an improvement over that?

    Tell that to a guy going bald. Most, anyway. I do feel bad for them.


    My dad told me decades ago that us Torch men keep our hair. Past the 50 mark, I'm finding that to be pretty much true, although those temple notches do keep slowly getting higher...

    Put me in the ridiculous group..Haven't sit in a barbers chair in over 30 years..I do trim it a bit from time to time and even shaved it once a while back..
    Why ???? Because it pisses off people that I don't like !!!!!

    I am well into my 60's I have really long hair ,and absolutely no grey , I've never dyed it or colored it , I grow it till its 10-12" or longer then cut it all off and donate it to Cancer Society for victims to gain some dignity for the ordeal the suffer, it cost me nothing and this is the 9th time I have done this with out fail , so if some one has an issue with it they can park it where the sun dont shine , vanity has never been an issue for me so before you throw your crap opinions around be sure there is some thing to say, instead of hearing yourself fart your opinions .

    next time i will really tell you how i feel

    64B4CFC6-B590-4DB3-907F-85EAF5875056.jpeg In my late 40s I had a braided ponytail down to about the small of my back...but when I lost so much hair on top it looked like a noose on a cue ball I decided to leave it shorter.

    It’s interesting to note how nearly overnight the longest hair on my head grows on my ears

    Back in the day, I loved two things - music stores and backpacking stores. My mom bribed me to get my haircut for my senior yearbook picture by taking me to Appalachian Outfitters in Oakton, VA and getting me a pair of Fabiano Mountain Master hiking boots. Back in the day, and this was the mid 70's, AO was a funky old house filled with the best gear you could buy. Way before any 'old' person had long hair, there were a few gents that worked there that enjoyed sharing their love of the outdoors and teaching us young pups the ropes. These guys were mostly college educated, retired government workers who in fact were some of people employed by the CCC in the Great Depression to build the AT and other trails, huts, shelters, and infrastructure that became Shenandoah NP and elsewhere. They were in their 60's or 70's at the time, and are now long gone, just like the store. But they still hiked every weekend and were a treasure to talk to and be around. I am glad I had the sense to be in awe of them at that time.

    And that's all I have to say about that. Other than, now old people with long hair look silly!

    Grow yer hair as you choose. Mine ain't long but it ain't too short either. I also own several Fedoras in my hat collection.

    I accepted the inevitable almost 20 years ago, cropped my hair down to the roots, and never looked back. One of the best decisions I ever made.

    Are you Fn kidding me! I swear, musicians can be the most judgemental people ever.... Remember the thread on what not to do on stage? No hats, no tuners, no lyrics...etc. etc. Now no long hair...... What's more stupid than all this is, is these kind of threads!!!!
