    Default Pointless thread on the topic of HAIR and FACIAL HAIR

    Me, slicked back usually, but i think its time for a nice changup. Maybe I'll dye it jet black?

    I don't particularily care about my 'hair style' too much. Yes I use gel and all that crap from time to time but that is just to make it look some what presentable, it's pretty pathetic that people spend hours concerned with it. I am growing my hair again I have decided after the big chop!

    As for facial hair, I either let it grow for a few weeks and have a semi beard or shave it and be clean shaven.

    Hair style - Simple. Why do people spend hours on something you can do in minutes? I keep mine neat, combed forward, no gel.
    Facial hair - My beardish thing (when I have one) is dark brown, but my hair is blonde...my gf doesn't like facial hair much. I suppose I don't have a choice

    I have hair past my shoulders, parted down the middle.
    I can't grow a real beard yet, so I shave often.

    In other words, I sort of look like the Gaul in my avatar, except younger, without the David Crosby walrus stache, and slightly darker and curlier hair.

    i have a semi-beard. Not that thick but it looks better than clean shaven
    btw I spend 2.5 minutes a morning on my hair (that includes finding the ----ing gel)

    at the moment i don't do anything with my hair as its always cold so im wearing my hat, but when its warmer usually use wax and flick my fringe up

    i just shave facial hair on average weekly, so its swings from cleanly shaven to a bit or a beard and moustache over the week

    I have a full beard - a bit longer than Ronin's. Same holds true for head hair, though mine is lazy - lying horizontal rather than striving for vertical as his does.

    Iīm not a fan of shaving, specially since my last gf dumped me, Iīm enjoying the freedom of being unpresentable. So I just trim my facial hair once or twice a week, which gives me the "tough guy" style 3-day beard. When/if I go out I usually shave leaving a D'Artagnan-style beard.

    About hair: really short to avoid brushing, cleaning, etc. My morning hair hygiene takes 10 seconds: cold water on my head, and baseball cap .

    What I really dont like is females with facial hair. And there are a few of those out there...

    Hmmmm, I still have hair, but it's certainly less than it used to be. The parking lot up top is getting mighty close to a landing strip.

    But I can grow a beard like a Russian! And I have every colour of the rainbow in there. Black, brown, red, blonde, grey, and white.

    I'm clean shaven 90% of the time since my woman permits no contact unless so. But in the winter when you're outdoors all the time a beard can be a real friend. All the boys at the logyard let it go wild in winter. it's part of the attitude. But if one night your sweetie forces you to shave, just... cough-cough, because, then the next day your cheeks and chin get it real nasty when the wind picks up.

    I'm minutes away from taking off a weeks worth of beard. Might keep a fu-manchu for a while just to piss her off.

    I generally go against current fashion.

    In the '70s, all the guys had long hair. Mine was short.

    In the '80s, the trend was towards short hair and a thin mustache. I had long hair and a fat mustache (sometimes a beard as well).

    In the '90s, when all the guys started trying to look like Bruce Willis (bristle head or bald with a goatee), I decided I would be clean-shaven and with Michael J. Fox hair. It boosted my lovelife right away, big time.

    I'm lucky I have hair, and so far almost no gray. How long can it last?

    I have short dark spikey/messy hair (easy to fix in the am) and should shave every day as i grow quite a thick beard if i leave it long, but being the procrastinator that i am i tend to shave every other day unless i have an important meeting at work. Even clean shaven i sill have a dark 5 o'clock shadow.

    My hair is short, real short, I get the wife to shave it with the shortest guard on the clippers, a No 1 for those in the UK. As for facial hair, I am of the firm belief that shaving is the work of the devil and so I only shave once or twice a week and pretty much always have stubble.

    My hair still looks like it does in the pic I posted in the Friends/Family Photos thread. In that pic I have a full goatee. Now it's a "Pirates of the Carribean" one--shaved off the sides under my mouth and above my chin, so I only have a moustache, chin hair, and the little tuft under my lip. I think I look a bit younger, and several lady friends say it makes me look less mean and more like the little devil that I am.

    Back in the 90s I wore my hair down past my shoulders. If I let it grow long it gets quite curly. Imagine Frodo's hair, but Aragorn's length and that's what I had.

    Monday through Thursday I'd slick it back and tie it off in a Seagal-like tail. On Fridays I let it loose (blue jeans on Fridays at work; long curly hair looks dork in a suit but ok in a tail). After about 5 years of being known as "the guy with the hair" to my coworkers, I got sick of it and cut it all off. Nice for people to call me by my NAME, gah.

    I liked having a mane, but it took FOREVER to get clean compared to my current doo. Nowadays I'm into quick and easy. A bottle of shampoo/conditioner lasts a year now instead of a month, and I have other things to do with my time and money.

    I have short to medium length hair, which I comb forward, except at the very front, where i push it sideways, thus covering most evidence of me balding.

    I used to have a beard (I have a red beard but brown-blond hair) but the GF really hates facial hair, so now i shave every other day. It isn't too bad, i couldn't grow much hair on my cheeks anyway, so I was stuck with a 'low' beard.
    Still, i looked cool with my short hair, beard and trenchcoat back then

    I have long hair; currently it reaches about half an inch past the tips of my shoulder blades. I've seen off numerous attempts to have it cut short, well over a decade's worth of battles. Amusingly my poor pet boyfriend loves my hair long, and gets all panicky if I mention having it cut. According to the person who trims my hair every now and then it's 'medium blonde', very strange really. Fine, silky, the individual threads look like fine gold wire if the light hits them right - I've never seen anyone else with matching hair. I don't do anything special with it, just wash it with normal shampoo. As you may be guessing by now I'm rather proud of my hair.

    Facial hair; I may not have any but I still get to comment, so there Clean shaven only! I've never really been enthusiastic about the way facial hair of any kind looks, and after having my poor, tender face torn up a few times by my boyfriend's stubble I now insist on freshly shaven. If he isn't he can keep himself company. On the far side of the room. In his own house. Which is in a different city. Stubble is like coarse grade sandpaper; it's very easy to get a nice set of lightly bleeding scratches all down the side of your face.

    Hairstyle - not simple. I like to look good, beeeatches, so I spend some time getting my hair into position. My hair is quite long, and I part it at the center... but it only takes a minute or five max. However, I am quite like Paris in that I check my damn hair and overall look out in every reflective surface I come across ^^; I use mousse... damn I sound like a metrosexual

    Facial hair - I'm too lazy to shave it every day, so I usually shave it once/twice a week and then let it grow again... but if I'm going out I shave it
