Hey I'm Chris and I am 16 years old. This is a question I have had my whole life. I grew up on the beach and still live there today. So I kinda of wanted long hair since the start. My dad raised me on Rock and Roll and that also influenced my long hair seeing how I grew up listening to Bon Jovi, Kiss, Guns and Roses, Led Zeppelin and all of those guys. I surf for Kane surfboards and I also skateboard for Globe Shoe Company as a flow sponsor. I don't know the long hair I've just always gone to. I play the drums in a Hard rock, and heavy metal band and my hair suits the category pretty well. I've always been kind of skinny and now I am 5' 7" As a sophomore, I've had less than pleasing results with girls this year, and I'm wondering wats the problem. I know my hair is something that hardly anyone is used to but all of my friends are used to it. I have been mistaken for a girl from behind before and also have had to deal with fights over being called gay for having it. I've stuck by my hair my whole life. I have dated girls and some are interested in me, but I guess the ones I'm into aren't into me. So I wonder is it my hair? My question is do girls (generally) like guys with long hair or short? And more specifically, which would you think suits me?
Thank you in advance to anyone who responds and helps me out. I appreciate it.
My hair is very straight, like with a straightener, but ihave never used one. I take good care of my hair, meaning shampoo and conditioner. my hair is thin too which shows grease fast so that's another reason I like to take care of it. Goes to my shoulder

There are ways to see what you'd look like with a different hair style before you take the plunge. Perhaps look into those style sites that give you the ability to alter your photo, or, just find photos of hairstyles you'd like to try cut out the faces and stick them on your head with a photo editing program.
It looks like you have nice hair, but ON you (altho you're freaking adorable and I wish I was your age again just to jump you) I think a shorter shaggy style might look better on you. Do you watch True Blood? Can't go wrong with Eric's style.
I think the long hair looks okay on you. It really depends on the guy whether he would look good with it or not. A guy I know had short hair as a kid, and it looked cute, but grew it out when he was a teenager, and it looked good, but then he cut it recently, and it looked better long when he was older. The case may or may not be the same for you. Just do what you want and don't let anyone influence you. Either way, it can be reversed, because hair grows back.
It depends on how you take care of it (obviously you do a great job) because if you don't and its a tangled mess, its disgusting but if you do take good care of it then all the girls will be wanting to run their fingers through your hair Lol. Hair length depends on the person, like my brother has beautiful curly hair and it just doeesn't look right when its really short, so its better when its to his shoulders or so looks really nice. You in your picture, look like longer hair suites you well. If you like longer hair then keep it like that and try not to get it past your shoulders.
I Think you should cut it shorter... I don't think guys that have long hair by their shoulders are attractive. I think you would look really good with it really short and spiked up in the front, or if you cute it to our chin it would look really good.
Gosh, I hope I'm not too late. But all the advice given is a crock! You are a very attractive guy and your long hair is absolutely amazing, pleasepleaseplease do not cut it! And, as for the girls, you'll find somebody who will love it. Honestly, I generally only go for guys with longer hair. And when you put it up in a bun or pony, GAHH so sexy.
Generally, I prefer long hair on guys. Just comes off as more attractive to me.
And judging by your picture, you pull off that length of hair better then any guy I know. I think you look fine with it. If you stuck by your hair your whole life, why give up on it now? It's your thing. But do whatever makes you comfortable.
of course it's different with every girl! i, personally, like short hair on guys. however, there are a lot of guys that are still attractive with long hair and girls who like long haired guys. one day, you'll meet a girl who will absolutely adore your hair and your style. you just need to find what you think suits you and what you're comfortable with.
There is nothing wrong with your hair! There is just things wrong with the girls. There is someone out there for everyone. So, Actually I think the question is, Do you like your hair to be long or short, If you are confident with it, Then girls will like it. Simple.
I've had long hair and short hair before and I got more compliments on the short hair. But ultimately it depends on the girl, and your type of hair. I recommend long hair only for men who have luxuriously thick hair, a good hairstylist, and lots of time for grooming. Otherwise keep it short.
i might grab your ass from behind because I would think your a chick. naw man, its fine.
dude go in to a hair dresser and say you want a 3 on the side, scissor cut the top, blend it, thin it out and you want to spike the top towards the front...that sh*t always works for just about any guy
