    Default Which hairstyle should I choose?

    For the past 3 years I've been growing my hair, and it's now almost waist length. Although it has been fun, and I don't regret doing it, I am starting to tire of it now, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have it cut. I thought I would solicit advice from the patrons here about what I should have done.

    I've been considering a classic men's haircut with a side parting, as sported by Errol Flynn in this picture-



    Alternatively, I could keep it slightly longer. I was watching The Princess Bride yesterday, and was quite taken with Cary Elwes' haircut-



    Or I could go for a central parting instead, again with the hair left slightly longer-



    What do you think?

    Before I decide: could I have a picture of you so I can see which hair style would suit you the best.

    Otherwise I would recommend the last one or a buzz cut .

    #3 will suit very well if you have such a cornered face.

    Who needs hair?

    Just lose it all

    RTW, 167 BC: Rome expels Greek philosophers after the Lex Fannia law is passed. This bans the effete and nasty Greek practice of 'philosophy' in favour of more manly, properly Roman pursuits that don't involve quite so much thinking.

    Definitely #3 and dye it lighter at the same time.

    What's wrong with my hair colour?!

    Number 3 is definitely the younger man's cut. However, I do really like those classic 50s hairstyles. It's tricky.

    Just a thought, #1 & 2 will probably require more hair goo of some kind.

    If you go for either #1 or #2, don't forget to grow the stylish moustache that Errol and Cary are sporting! Any other hairstyles from Robin Hood actors that you are considering?

    Alright BKS,

    Mrs. Beirut says:

    First off, you don't have to cut it that short.

    Second, your hair is too straight to pull of the Errol Flynn wave.

    Third, if you cut it that short your hair will have no body.

    Fourth, of the three shots, go with the third style


    My ten year-old says "Ugh!" in reference to Errol Flynn. She's ten, whadaya expect.

    You look like a girl.
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    I'd say #1 or #2 - but #3 would look good too.

    I go with Sasaki on this! Mohawk it! I suggest the Psychobilly Mohawk: Bigger in the front than it is in the back, and other than that, it is a mohawk.
    I actually did sport this cut^ for a long time, the wife says she like my hair so I grew it out.
    Csar, why wish for straight hair? I have a lot of curly hair and the wife loves it.
