Long hair on a guy--yay or nay?

FreeCurlsFreeCurls Posts: 4,408Registered Users
I must admit I think it depends on the guy but for the most part I prefer shorter hair on a guy. Doesn't have to be a buzz cut but no scraggly ponytails.

Would you pass on a guy if he had long hair even if everything else was slamming? Is long hair on a guy a deal breaker?
some examples:

no hair...

    I've always preferred long hair, just able to fit behind their ears. I've always had a thing for grunge. Not gross grunge.

    I couldn't vote. :cry:
    My answer would be, HELL YES! I love long hair on men. However, it has to be in good condition. 8)

    hmmm... you didn't give an option for those who like long hair only!

    :P

    anyway, i don't choose partners based on hair length.

    but, i will say that Brad Pitt was at his sexiest in Legends of the Fall!!!

    *swoon*

    :D

    whoops I meant to add another option to the pool but as I've just learned, you can't edit polls :(

    so I'll add it here,

    Option: long hair makes you roll over and stand at attention.

    I prefer short hair but I won't pass on a guy just because he had long hair. Actually when I met my boyfriend he had short hair and now it's longish. I would like if he cut it, but he can wear it the way he likes and I'm not gonna break up with him over it. :)

    There are exceptions but it's rare for long hair to look good on a man I think. Pony tails are the worst, just look ridiculous.

    In general, I don't prefer long hair on men. I can do the behind the ear length bounce was talking about but definately nothing long enough to pull in a ponytail.

    I've seen a few guys that had gorgeous long curly hair, and thought their hair was amazing. I can even see the sex appeal if that's your type, but I prefer short or bald. I love that last pic of Brad Pitt.

    I think it depends on the guy. Long hair looks great on some guys and a complete mess on others.

    I have no objection to long hair on a guy as long as it's no longer than collarbone length and in good condition. Straggly = urgh!

    I agree. It depends on the guy. I don't normally like long hair on a guy, but Viggo Mortensen was yummy with long hair. :D

    Furio from the sopranos - he wasn't bad, however it looked much better in a ponytail than down like this.

    I guess it depends on the guy. I don't normally like it and think it looks very dated on most men, but occasionally I see someone who can pull it off. I think Nick Chavez looks OK with it.

    I never got the guys who wear ponytails 24/7. Why have long hair if you always wear it back? Why not cut it short with some style?


    Freecurls - I think that guy (last one) is the most beautiful on the face of this earth. Who is that?

    Austin,

    His name is Mark Collier and he is some sweet eyecandy form my addiction to soap operas. He's on As the World Turns and plays Mike Kasnoff. and he is sooo hot. hejust recently got a buzz cut and he still looks good but I liked him better with the longer hair. HE's got the cutest dimples.

    It depends on the guy. Long hair can be really hot on the right guy. :lol:

    i voted that it doesnt matter much to me, however, there is a limit as to how long the hair can be for me to stay attracted. my freshman year in college, i dated a guy with hair a couple of inches past his shoulders. beautiful hair. oh i loved it! and now the guy i am dating a guy that has hair that comes up to his shoulders. thats as far as i am willing to go with the length tho...

    some guys can pull of the long look, as long as they arent bald at the top and growing their hair to compensate for the missing hair! and i hate the ponytail look. sheesh, i am too critical eh? :)

    It depends on the guy.

    And some guys look good with both long or short.

    Case in point:

    I loooooooove long hair on guys. Love it love it love it. Unfortunatly for me, hubby cut his beautiful long hair, about 2-3 months ago. And currently I still dont like the short cut.
  • quickcurlquickcurl Posts: 1,310Registered Users
    Can I just tell everyone that I sat here looking at the pictures of Viggo for a few minutes before posting?!?!? I looooooove that man, no matter what his hair looks like.

    I agree with what so many others have said - depends on the guy and the quality of the hair. I love long and healthy hair on a guy if it suits him. Some can pull it off, some can't.

    Ditto! The only look I object to, 100%, is bald. Not a shaved head but bald with the fringe like Jason Alexander. For me that is so unattractive.

    Long works on Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Viggo Mortensen. Shaved works on Vin Deisel. Short works on Adrien Brody. It totally depends on the guy.

    I don't like Viggo with short, short hair. I like him in the various lengths Fiona posted but not the shorter almost military thing he has been sporting lately. Actually, that may be another look, I object too on most men.

    It depends but in general, I'm not too fond of really long hair. Any longer than the chin is not really my thing. He'd have to carry it off well.

    Patrick Stewart is just HOT... I am having trouble thinking if I would feel the same with hair. The bald works for him so well. I don't mind a confident bald guy, not at all.

    It doesn't matter too much to me. A guy can look great whether his hair is short, long, or gone. I loved the grunge look and think Kurt Cobain was one of the most gorgeous men ever, but I actually prefer shorter hair on my boyfriend simply because it is more flattering on his face. For guys like Patrick Stewart and Billy Corgan, bald is beautiful. I'll stop prattling now. Suffice it to say it depends on the guy.

    Viggo takes my breath away in every photo. Long hair, short hair or no hair he'd still be sex on legs. (insert drooling smiley here)
