Alright let's get to disclaimer. Some guys can pull off long hair some less so, it mainly has to do with head shape and genetics, but iv'e compiled a few reasons why wearing your hair long is great and also pretty cool. Been growing my hair out for a year now so maybe this could be motivation, and these are the benefits iv'e found, you're however completely free to disagree lol
I thought I would get the obvious out of the way. Short hair results in a limited amount of styles and way to wear it...Obviously....But there is SO much you can do for your style with long hair. You can tie it, wear it up, let it loose, man bun, curl them, straighten them if you want, not to mention you can braid it!
2. Wonderful Scents
That one, not so mentioned. But hair oils are amazing, and some scented hair oils that you can get and put into long hair can have masculine, perfumed or neutral scents that can smell wonderful. You'll also have access and use to a greater array of hair products in general. Sure there is always perfume but this is quite different- You would be surprised of how confident you can feel when you let your hair loose and you send an amazing smell all around you that can be incredibly attractive.
3. Can make you look way more laid back.
Done with the practicality let's get to the spirit of it all!
So you may know. Short hair makes you appear -in general- tight and concise and very sharp, which is great. But long hair however can make you appear a tad less serious, looser if you get my drift. More free spirited, if you let it. You'll find I bet that people could find it easier to approach you because you'll maybe seem less serious and cold at first glance. Your smiles could be fuller, you could look cooler :)
4. For guys it's not all too trendy---Yet
Yearning for a sense of individuality. You'll be served!
Long hair for guys is not all too common. Not too uncommon mind you, not looked down upon I wouldn't think. But still it is a way to set yourself apart in a major way. You're unlikely to look like every other guy rocking a short undercut all year long for 20 years of their lives..... Guys are expected to have short hair today even thought most males in ancient time wore their hair long, I don't know why but it's how it is. Therefore you'll have more of your own style, or at least you could, with long hair! It's not a way to break the social fabric in any way at least not on my part lol But is more original to my sense in our day and age for a guy.
5. Can make girls jealous, and is a great conversation topic.
Maybe girl like guys with long hair more maybe they don't, maybe it makes no difference at all, i'm not sure if the science is out on that yet.
BUT, I have found that (since it's something that girls and guys can have in common if you have long hair) you could find it is a very very good sustained topic to talk about with girls, it's something you'll have a shared experience with as weird as it may seem. You can also WOW them with how great your hair looks, maybe even better than theirs, and I don't know having better hair than your girlfriend as a guy sorta starts a deep rooted irony and a friendly competition.
6. Can surprisingly make you look more masculine!
I won't lie to you, in the end it can just as well make you look feminine, the truth is if you're growing hair you might want to hit the gym at some point or at least grow a beard...
Long hair is commonly thought of as a female attribute these days but it's not all too true, having a man bun and a beard is sometimes the most masculine you will look. This relates wholly to 7
7. Shows you're wholly comfortable with yourself and your sexuality
Since long hair IS ofttimes attributed to feminity , if you as a guy wear long hair comfortably, with masculinity and pride and no apology it really, to me demonstrates that you're not only comfortable with yourself but also that you're in no way afraid to take risks when it comes to style and are not too concerned with what others may think, which in turn makes you appear as bolder and more interesting to others I assure you. When you've gone through awkward stages of hair growth and survived them all without cutting.... you're not too likely to feel insecure about much.
You're not forced to fall in the fold and you show it, and you're althemore cooler for it!
8. Growing hair is a journey!
I won't say all too much, this is for another my take which delves into why having long hair can be a hassle.
It's not all too easy, it's definitely not a short process at all. There are bumps, awkward stages and long periods where you won't look great until your hair is grown out. But to me you feel great when it's done and you do feel a sense of accomplishment and feel consolidated as a person. Not to mention a journey is a journey, the memory of it is always good.
In the end I'm not saying all guys should have long hair, definitely not. This is merely a little wink to how cool long hair is to me and a way to share my feeling about it. Let me know if you would like me to make another my take delving into why one shouldn't grow hair!
Because there are reasons for that also LMAO.
