What Can Be Done to Make Long Hair on Men Popular, Again?

    Men wearing their hair short is so prevalent in western culture that it is often seen as a sign of masculinity as much as long hair is a sign of femininity. However, the practice of men having short hair is a relatively recent phenomenon, which began when soldiers fighting in World War I cut their hair short to prevent it from being infested with lice while they were in the trenches, and, unfortunately, the practice gain popularity after that.

    However, during the 1960's, men began to grow their hair long as a sign of protest, and that practice remained common through the 1970's and 1980's, but then, during the 1990's, long hair on men lost popularity almost as abruptly as it had gained popularity, and, today, most men wear their hair short, again, despite the fact that their fathers very likely had long hair when they were younger.

    I find this to be very unfortunate, since I like long hair, feel that it enhances a person's face (i.e., it makes an attractive face more attractive and makes an unattractive face more unattractive), and believe that the idea that men and women should have different hairstyles is completely arbitrary and foolish, so I very much would like to see long hair become popular on men, again.

    What does everyone else say about this? Why did long hair on men abruptly lose popularity in the 90's, and what can be done to make it popular, again?

    It already is popular, if you're good looking and can pull it off.

    Nothing you or anyone can do. It’s a personal preference.

    Are you implying it's not popular now?

    It's more popular now, than it has been in the last few decades.

    Thanks to this new age mentality, we're currently in, more women are cutting their hair short and men leaving it long.

    A good percentage of the males in my life, have long hair.



    You think both genders having different hairstyles is arbitrary and foolish? When in the same sentence you said how it makes ugly people uglier and pretty people prettier?

    Doesn't that mean, that you're not really looking for a reason on why things are the way they are, you just want long hair for all, because that's your own taste?

    If you bring genders into this, and gender equality, why not just have all women shave their hair short? If you think it's foolish for both genders to have differing hair, then you should be behind this movement as well, right?

    It is not an accident that cultures across the world (with certain exceptions, such as African cultures) consider long hair to be a sign of beauty, because, back when humans were still hunter-gatherers, those who were hunting and gathering did not have time to focus on maintaining their appearance; therefore, a person with long and well-groomed hair was someone who had the luxury of not needing to constantly struggle to survive.

    Nitpick your history much? Good looking guys can get away with it now. I personally think the shape of my skull is attractive, so I keep my hair short for that reason. Long hair also pulls attention away from my piercing blue-green eyes that bring about instant moistness in women's panties.

    I don't think it matters what is popular or not. As long as you are allowed, everybody should have whatever haircut they like. The best option is having many options and there are stylish haircuts for both short and long hair after all.

    It doesn't matter if it's popular or not. If you want long hair then grow it out. Who cares what anybody else thinks. You do you bro.

    I wear mine long. People are only gonna care if you live somewhere like a military base or New Jersey or Miami Florida.

    The former because they have that beaten into them. The latter because they're afraid their friends might think they like it in the butt if they wear their hair long. Then again, their closets are full of technicolor Nike's for every outfit so, y'know, you tell me who the fag is here.

    Someone with long hair or someone who owns more shoes than a woman?

    The idea that shoes are a feminine accessory is a social construct that has no basis in biology, so I wish that people would stop associating footwear with women.

    Men shoes should have a purpose or a reason. I have four pairs. A pair of Converse I wear to work. A pair of Sketchers I slip on when I want to run errands. A pair of nice leather shoes if I have to dress up fancy. And a pair of fluffy slippers I sometimes wear around the house when the floors are cold or when I get out of the shower.

    Back in the states I might add to that list a pair of loafers for slightly more formal occasions, a pair of boots for hiking and inclement weather, a pair of water shoes for all purpose day hiking, and maybe a nasty pair of old sneakers if I have to do something that involves literally standing in garbage or feces. In this case, the leather loafers would replace the Converse, the Converse would likely replace the Sketchers or be relegated to weekend shoes. I would likely only wear 3 pairs with any regularity, the other shoes coming out of the closet for 2-3 days a year.

    This mentality of utility of purpose is not the women's mentality. My wife owns several dozen pairs of shoes, most of which aren't worn at all, purchased for a single occasion, worn once and then stored forever away.

    Nobody said they're feminine. It is however feminine to have shoes for no reason.

    I own a pair of work boots, a pair of junk shoes for car washing and casual outings, and two pairs of outing shoes, one each for the two outfit color themes I tend to wear, red and blue.

    See? Legit man talk. I have dress shoes, work shoes, shit shoes, and two pairs of casual shoes. Then two pairs of hiking boots depending on the time of year and the terrain. Shoes are utilitarian.
