Guys, why do the majority of guys have short hair?

I mean, why not long hair? It seems like traditional for guys to have short hair. State your reasons.

  • It's all culture. Western culture sees short hair as more clean and business orientated. Some cultures do have guys with mostly long hair (native Indians).

    • I thought that short hair would make me more desirable... ugh

  • Perhaps they believe it's impairing their manliness?
    That's probably the best explanation
    although I don't agree with this

    I've kept my hair almost shoulder long for a long
    time now, and I can't see me changing it any
    time soon, or for which reason I should ^.~

  • Some people in the professional world also have to live up to expectations of their employer and thus have short hair. Had longer hair when I was much younger.

  • My hair is naturally straight as a rod. When it gets long there's absolutely no shape or volume to it, it just falls flat around my head. I much rather have it short and style it a little. Plus it's so convenient an virtually maintenance free. Since I like the outdoors, manual work and riding motorcycle, it's just much more practical.

    Last (only) time I had long hair was in high school, long enough to reach the tip of my nose.

  • Four reasons:

    -Easier to take care of and maintain
    -Doesn't ever get in the way whilst doing sports
    -When I get in a fight no one can pull it
    -I'd look like a spanner with long hair and long hair (in my mind) is feminine

  • It's practical. I know ladies like to shower for an hour doing deep conditioning and rinses. Then blow dry their hair for another hour to get it dry. Then straighten their hair. Then bush it... and on and on and on... but I've got shit to do. Even when I don't have shit to do I'd rather play video games, go mountain biking, go to the gym, go for a swim, read, or just about anything else than sit around taking care of my hair while looking in the mirror. Shit I'd rather mow the lawn...

  • No it's not traditional. In the old days, guys used to keep their hair long as a symbol of honor or life. But in the modern days, they cut it short. I think, for some reason, that they look more handsome the shorter their hair is. But I don't like it when they are totally bald.
