Long hair on men

Do you think it's sexy or gross? Do you think there is a time and place for it? What about those guys with a big ol' bald patch and a ponytail?

Well it makes my skin crawl, My hubby had long hair before we met and its a good job for me he started to loose it and shaved the whole lot off as i would not of looked at him twice.
I think if you are going bold shave it off its way more sexy than a comb over that makes you look like a prat.
and the bold on top with the pony tail just makes me laugh they look so silly.

ack - Sebastian Bach is a TOTAL asshole.

I loved the long hair look when I was younger. I was all over Sebastian Bach from Skidrow. And I even like mullets, Jaromir Jagr was my fav. But I've since grown and I think developed better taste. I still like long hair on certain guys, some people just carry it off well and it looks sexy. When I was running the yoga studio, I had this guy who did carpentry in the place in exchange for yoga and his hair was all the way down his back and he was GORGEOUS!! Probably also helped by the fact that he was super sweet and intelligent. But nowadays, I'm all about bald men. That was one of the things that attracted me to my hubby in the first place. The first time we met, about a year or so before we started getting to know each other, he had a "hair replacement system" (also known as a rug). I didn't even really notice him. But the next time we met, I was smitten with his lovely head. And what was in it :)

I can't say I'm a fan of long hair or balding ! With my partner my preference is, i must be able to run my fingers through it but it can't be longer than mine ! I haven't had my hair cut in 8 months... and my partner gets his cut every 6 weeks.... go figure !

Thats a good one i enjoyed that lol im in the process of getting my stubborn 11 year old to the barbers. He is adamant he doesnt want his haircut but ive told him if he doesnt go i'll shave his head while he's sleeping. I never would but he doesnt know that lol. I wouldnt mind if his hair looked nice long but it looks like he's been dragged through a bush backwards.

I've always been attracted to bald men but does anyone remember the scene in The English Patient when the guy takes off his turban? nom nom nom

I used to only date long hair heavy metal type guys! When my husband (then BF) cut off his long hair, I almost died and broke up with him! I personally have no problem with long hair on boys too, as long as they still look like little boys! Many native american boys in my area most certainly keep long hair as part of their culture. Actually, you need permission from the tribal elders to cut your hair!

There was a boy in my sons class when he was 9/10 with long hair who moved from another school because he was bullied because he had long hair. Its definately a no no when it comes to my sons now.

if you are balding SHAVE IT lol bald is sexy on Most but not all men. I never was a long hair fan tho

If its extremely long hippy hair, then I dont find it attractive, but I dont think its "gross" or wrong. I grew up in the harley scene. Ive seen alot of what some people would call "gross". If you are honestly going to look at someone, whether they are fat, ugly, tatooed up, gothic, or just a man with long hair, and judge them, thinking they are uneducated, a bad person, or whatever, than your a real ignorant balnkity blank blank! You have a right to not find it attractive, but if your going to judge someone on their appearance, I feel bad for you, because your obviously a shallow, ignorant, mean, and just plain morally messed up person. I dont care WHAT you look like, you could look like marilyn manson for all I care, untill I have a conversation with you, Im not going to give in to my impulsive judgments and allow myself to form an opinion on you. Personally, what I find attractive is the person they are on the inside, but to answer your question, I prefer a man with shorter hair, shaved especially. I would rather be with a man that has muscle and can fix things, then a man who sells cars, etc. Im assuming the thread about the little boy getting suspended for his long hair may have inspired this thread, so Ill add that if I had a little boy, I would grow his hair out to his chin, and then cut it off. I think thats CUTE! :)

i agree it has to be clean and not shaggy looking. my MIL's boyfriend has a skullet and we make fun of him for having it, but i really couldn't see him with out it! some men it's super sexy. i'm like evelyn with my other fav. hairstyle for men is bald. although my husband looks like an egghead when he shaved his head once. i told him he'd never get any again if he did that to his hair again! i also like it when a man has scruffiness on his face instead of clean shaven-drives me wild!

@ Jenny, OMG Jax. Holy hell, he is the embodiment of everything a man should be *drool* (too bad my dh said that he wanted to grow a beard like Opi...hahaha yeah right; NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!)

Love it love it...as long as it suits the man. My ex-husband had (still has) hair down to his waist...he's Dominican and sexxyyyyyy (we may be divorced but I'm not blind!) LOL He never wears it out..usually in a ponytail or gets cornrows straight down his back. Trust me ladies...if you saw it you would understand why I was crazy over his hair...so thick and beautiful! Ironically enough...my other fave style is bald....go figure.

Michelle - posted on 02/01/2010




Yuck, I personally don't like it, but that's my taste in men.... Cody tried to grow his out "to see what it looked like" and I just couldn't stand it... I much prefer the clean-cut look.
You know what's funny though-- my step dad is bald on top and a looooooooong ponytail in the back, but he would look RIDICULOUS with short hair!! Somehow it makes him look very intimidating and "manly" I guess in his own way.....

lmao at "skullet" I agree with the fact that the hair has to fit the man if it is long. I'm not into the mullet (or skullet) there are some men who look absolutely hot with dreads, I dont mind a nice head of hair on a man, but I dont really find long (middle of back) hair attractive nowdays...but I did in the 90's :) Krista, Anthony Kiedis was so sexy with his long hair back in the day...he would flip it all around when he sang, and it sent my teenage hormones into overdrive lol

Jenny - posted on 02/01/2010




Agreed, depends on the guy. Comic Book Guy hair, no thank you. Jax from Sons of Anarchy - hells yeah!

Sara - posted on 02/01/2010




I think on some guys it can look ok, but it seems to me that 99% of men who try for the long hair look are balding, thus they have a "skullet" (bald man's mullet). Not sexy, AT ALL!

I personally have never really found guys with long hair attractive, but once in a while I'll see some hollywood "hunk" with long hair and think he's lookin' pretty sex-ay.

Krista - posted on 02/01/2010




Depends on the man, depends on the style. Anthony Kiedis, from Red Hot Chili Peppers, looked wayyyyy better with long hair than short. If it's clean, not straggly, not thinning (or bushy), and suits the guy's face, frame and life? Then yes, please.

Sara likes ;)

But not mullets. My college boyfriend got a mullet on a dare and made some major money off it....lol. It was shaved off the next day.

Jaime - posted on 01/31/2010




lol...when it comes to long hair on a guy there is a certain type that's sexy...Nicolas Cage in "Conair"....DAMN SEXY...bald spot guy with a long pony tail---NOT SEXY!

Jocelyn - posted on 01/31/2010




I love long hair on men! Around shoulder level I just swoon over. But there are conditions lol, not greasy, not with a bald spot, and it just has to look nice on the guy. Sadly my dh looks like a loser with long hair (I saw an old pic and 0_o lol)

I am not a fan of long hair on men. I don't mind the "shaggy" look if it's kept clean but beyond that, it's short hair for me. Josh recently tried growing his out to be a little on the shaggy side (I think more because he didn't have time to get it cut and didn't trust me to do it) and it was starting to get out of the awkward stage and look kind of hot but now it's gone. And I realized just how sexy he looks with his short hair! ♥

I think it's only sexy on a musician :-p I used to go out with a couple of musos. One had long dreads (they were gross but looked hot) and one just had shoulder-length dirty blonde hair that was usually in a ponytail (also hot). But on anyone else, I would've instantly thought 'tryhard'.

Unless ofcourse it's a mullet. That is just DEAD SEXY ;)

Well it depends upon the man and the style. When I first met Jeremiah he had a full head of hair. His hair is curly when it grows out so he had an afro so he would use a blow dryer sometimes to calm his massive tame of curls. It went below his neckline. I LOVED his hair until one day he shaved it off and gave me a heart attack. I used to be all about the hair. I dug guys with great hair whether it was short, medium, or long length. Since Jeremiah joined the military his hair because of Army regulation has been short. I have to say I miss running my fingers through his curls sometimes but he is still hot.

Now when guys have a comb over or a bald spot and they are still trying to sport the ponytail ...ewww so not attractive. If they have long hair but it is greasy and not taken care of .....ewww so not attractive. If they have spiked hair that has enough gel in it to ignite with the strike of one match...ewww so not attractive.
