    When I was a kid, my aunties would always fuss over my hair and touch it saying, oh! you've got grandma's hair.... (fine, fair and straight)...

    I was horrified. Nooooo...... as I looked over at grandma she had the blue rinse and tight permed curls..... AHHHHH.. no, I don't want to look like that when I'm old....:eek::lol:

    The barbershop is the most segregated place in America. Segregated by both race and sex. I’ve walked out of multiple barbershops because people were either being sexist or racist. (Hitler comments, Ray Charles comments, etc.).

    My hair is longer than it has ever been. I was in court today for work and a heroin mom looked at me with a dazed look and said “Jesus?” Not kidding.

    Live and let live. Its not for me.

    Back in the 70's I had long hair and it drove me crazy. I'm too lazy to properly take care of it.

    In the ‘60s and ‘70s my hair was to my waist. In college I majored in art, specifically sculpture. I pulled it all back and tucked it under a watch cap when I worked. One day a stray whisp got caught in the armature of a drill and I smacked my temple with a Black and Decker. The next day I cut it back to about an inch.

    Ouch.. I've done that too.... never made me cut my hair though... just kept my head farther away from the drill... which is hard to do when you're under a truck chassis trying to drill holes for tow bars/bull bars, etc....:D

    It's okay unless there's a receding hairline. Then it looks downright ghastly.

    Bald guys look cool with mean-looking facial hair. But bald with no facial hair looks like someone on the state police pervert mapping website.

    I agree generally... most old guys look worse with long hair. Same with most young guys. I see people like Alice Cooper and other old rockers running around Scottsdale and he looks so tired and dated.... way past expiration date.

    Shorter hair gives a man a more youthful appearance than long hair does.

    I think Karl Lagerfeld pulled it off well, though; but he always wore it in a pony tail, and dressed impeccably, always wore dark glasses, and half-gloves. Total "celeb" look. No doubt he drew attention wherever he went - even if people didn't know who he was.

    Somehow, Jimmy Page still looks good with long hair.

    But most old rock 'n' rollers still wearing long hair look like of stupid, I think. Joe Walsh anyone? :lol: Scary.

    I guess they feel they need to wear their hair like they did in the seventies and eighties to maintain their image/personna? I don't know. Don't really care though - if that's what makes 'em happy - so be it. Doesn't ruin my day.

    Sorry. Wide-brimmed fedoras make sense. Total sun coverage, rain resistant, comfortable, always in style.

    Oh, get real. We look bad either way. Might as well have some fun while we're at it.

    There are 10 kinds of people: those who read binary and those who don't.

    This topic is as pointless now as it was in the 60's.
