Given that it's a LOT more work, I don't see how it represents "Freedom".

it represents being to lazy to get a hair cut

I can't stand long hair on a guy. Just my personal preference.
Link Posted: 9/1/2004 7:34:28 AM EST
it represents lack of personal hygine and lack of money for a haircut.........

Link Posted: 9/1/2004 7:34:52 AM EST
No, I take the maxiumum lazyness aprroach.

Beard = no shaving
Head cut short with walmart clippers, no guard = no $$ for haircuts and no combing hair

You mean 'hair' cut short, right?

Throwback to the hippy culture. Doesn't necessarily mean they are a hippy, just that they were influenced by the lippy life in some way.

I had long hair for a while (1ft-15") and let me tell you, it was not freedom at all. Had to comb it a lot, otherwise I got little mini-dreads, had to use a lot of shampoo, conditioner too, otherwise I got mini-dreads, and this little asshole kept pulling it.

<1" hair, now that's the way to go.

Well when you see an older male with long hair it's a pretty sure bet he is a liberal Democrat still stuck in th 60's.
We got one of those assholes at work. Thinks the word owes him just for existing. Lazy worthless person.

I had long hair when it was "in" during the 70s. I had a ponytail thay was about 8". My soccer and baseball coaches called me D'Artagnian.

What a pain in the ass. I had it cut short and kinda "styled" in 1975 and haven't looked back since.

Here in AZ I can't fathom why a male would wear long hair. When mine gets the slightest bit long-ish I head for the barber.

To hot in the summer, too much of a pain to wash, a hazard around power tools. Mine used to be longer, not getting haircuts all the time was a bonus. Babes liked it. Looks pathetic if used as a comb-over.

Doesn't represent anything other than personal choice.

I just look plain ugly with short hair. Plus it keeps me warm in the winter and helps breakup my outline when bowhunting.

Ages ago long hair was considered manly. The 60's and 70's hippy freaks are responsible for the "freedom" thing. It has nothing to do with why my hair is long.

They more than likely had short hair. They wore wigs to have the long hair. Please don't tell me you wear a powdered wig.

After I got out of the Navy in '90, I didn't get my haircut for 24 months. I keep it really cropped down now.

I've had very long hair, shaved off, and hair cropped short.

It means nothing. Except how long it takes to clean yourself up. In that respect, I prefer the latter two. Long hair is a pain.

Some wore wigs. Some had the real thing. I guess the ones that wore wigs just wanted to look like the cool guys.

i guess everyone here would get a very wrong first impression of me then. hair pulled back to a very small poney tail, a VERY short Amish type beard, and a pair of Danner GTX boots. but at 55 i was never into the hippie thing or any type of drugs. ok, beer and jack but just a taste. if i had a face that was more round i'd shave it.
be well

Hey, I've got shoulder-length locks because my old boss said he'd give me a raise if I did it and he wasn't the only one in the office with long hair! True story (but it wasn't much of a raise). Keep running it today (15 years later) just because I can (since I'm now self-employed) and it's different.

Can't say it reflects anything other than a personal preference.

I've had long hair, I've had crew cuts, I've had perms (I can thank pop for that idea ), and I've had a mohawk (to prove a minor point ).

My wife and I would both rather that I have long hair, but my clients would prefer that I have a "respectable" short cut.

Clients put food on the table, so I have short hair.

Growing up and working in the world sucks, but untill I retire, it's what I'm stuck with.

Oh, and Sarge, my preference for [reference to little kitty-cats deleted] pushes my desire for long hair. See comment above.

Meethinks the lady doth protest too much.

It was three years from the time I retired from the USAF until I darkened the doorway of a barber shop again. Why? Because I could.

Did it mean anything? Probably not.

I'm growing it again. Why? Because I can.

I can grow it out. I can cut it. After 21 years of 2 haircuts a month, it's my choice.

Whatever prejudged opinions you have of a guy in his 40s with long hair, they probably don't fit me. Think about it.

Long hair on a guy is either....

(1) Poor grooming

or

(2) evidence of some latent desire to be a girl

Oh c'mon.

When I was young I had really long hair. Bathed daily, kept it clean. Girls loved it. I had the money. I liked the hair.

Now, unfortunately I don't have to worry about it.
