Male or female but why do they not look it, like brush it or condition, put it up, and what really irks me is men that have lovely long hair just tie it back.

Might as well ask why people who could have nice hair razor it down to a stubble...their choice. :-)

Did you ever wonder just how old our eyebrows were when they decided it was time to shed their perfectly groomed past and grow out like a wild briar at a ninety degree angle to our heads?

Was it the realisation that the hair on the top of our heads was disappearing faster than the icecap – and that the only chance it had of survival was to make a run for it in a new direction? Or did word reach the brows that the ears were suddenly in the game, growing hair like a roadside bush?

You know the sands of time are weighted against you when the barber takes as much care trimming your ears, nose and eyebrows as he does with the area that once was commonly known as your fringe.

*sighs....nothing like a man's silken hair streaming all over your pillow and of course, before some smarty says it, it most definitely has to be accompanied by a hunky man

Sorry foilks, am having flashbacks here :-D :-D :-D

Deap breath BC, not good for you all this introspection. :-D

I've genreally had short/shortish hair, cut either by my sister or a hairdresser. When I went to Uni 16 years ago, I grew my hair long, and had it in a french plait.
After I left uni and got a job, I had it cut short again, initially by my sister, then a hairdresser. Then the hairdresser left, and I couldn't find one I liked. Certainly didn't like spending £60 on something my sister could have done better :-|
So, I've grown it long again.
I still put it in a french plait, but now I tuck the plait under, so I look like I'm off to some sort of dressage :-D
I find this sooo much easier than 'styling' short hair every morning.

I love long hair, and it generally takes me three years to grow it to waist length.

However, now that I am old and grey, I feel that long hair would look silly on me.

If I had the cheek to do it, I would have my hair long, but I do tend to resemble the wicked witch of the west when it is longer than my shoulders.

One chap I used to work with is/was in a band and he needed it to be long to fit with the image of said band so I did understand that, there is a man I see almost every day who doesn't even brush his but it is tied back, I think it would look good if he brushed it before he tied it back instead of leaving it all matted, yuk.

My brother had really long hair back in the 60s & 70s

He started losing his hair in his early twenties.

Ended up with a wee bit at the back......said he was fed up with it, had to go for "haircuts" on hair that he couldn't even see!

One night, after a few glasses of red, he shaved it all off!

Chrome Dome.

It suits him! The totally bald look is "trendy" :-D

IMHO the worst "do" for men...... going bald on top, long at the back in a ponytail!

There's a bloke at work whose hair is thinning on top. He has it short, but has one long scrawny dreadlock down his back. :-|

I could never get my hair to grow down as far as my shoulders.

Think my eyebrows might do it now if I let them..


LadyScozz Report 29 Apr 2013 06:10


Mine have got sparse over the last few years, I've hardly any left. I have to pencil them in ~ carefully. I hate the hard line some women draw.

btw ~ my baldy brother has a beard. I tell him his head is upside-down



Dermot Report 29 Apr 2013 07:55

I knew a girl once who had lovely long black hair all down her back. It was a pity though it didn't grow on her head.

But the worst thing I witnessed fairly recently was two bald-headed men fighting over the ownership of a comb.

Boom! Boom!

Ah yes, females with long hair.
What I don't understand is why many young women, and it does seem to be the young ones, with beautiful long hair, constantly feel the need to keep flicking it around, usually into other people's faces, but they just can't leave it alone.
What's that all about? It ends up looking like it's never been combed.

But it doesn't end there.
They then intermittently vigorously rub or scratch at their scalp in an effort to disarrange said beautiful long hair, but in actual fact it really looks like they're having a good scratch at nits.

I find it all very odd. In my opinion, there's nothing nicer than well groomed long hair looking silky and shiny when it's just been brushed.
But what do I know, i'm just an old fogey.

My grandad was bald, with a wee bit at the back (much like my brother!) <3

Grandad went to the barber once a month. Got the wee bit trimmed. Also got a trim on his eyebrows, nostril & ear hair!

If he'd left the eyebrows, nostrils & ears, he could have pulled all the hair to the top of his head........... nah, can't imagine grandad with rasta dreadlocks :-D
