I'm willing to confess to having a weakness for men with long hair,
I'm more than happy to admit to the same weakness. OH is the only guy I've ever dated with short(er) hair, but even his was long until his 30s. For older guys, I think there's a midway point that's way hotter than really long hair (if you've got the strong jawline to carry it off) because it's just enough to get your hands into without spending longer in the bathroom that your lady.

So, as a gentleman approaching middle age, I was thinking it was high time I had a mid-life crisis. You know, recapture the lost glories of my youth, that kind of thing.

I can't afford a Ferrari, and value my balls too much to entertain the thought of getting a mistress, so I thought, perhaps, that I could grow my hair out. You see, as a young man, and an afficiando of thrash metal, I once had marvellous locks down to my shoulders and beyond, which filled those lucky young ladies who had the opportunity to stroke it into raptures of delight. I was, for sure, a veritable Absolom.

So what do you think? Is long hair attractive on the older man? Do you like it with a touch of grey? With ponytail, in a bun, or loose?

I'm all ears, as long as they're still visible!
I had no idea you were that young???

About 8 years ago I asked a Swiss (female) friend for some tips on selling to the Swiss. She said I had to concentrate on the women/housewives. She told me that all Swiss women think that all British men are just like Hugh Grant. So she told me to grow my hair longer for a start (then learn to be even more charming than I was etc). So I gave it a go and I guess it did help. I mean in selling that is .

I guess I'm very lucky that I still (even approaching 60 ) have a full head of thick wavy hair. I don't have my hair so long these days, but it's certainly down below my collar. But if you have thinning hair, especially on top, you'd look a bit like a t**t.

honestly grumpy, you look better than you did 10 yrs ago (when you were just a young lad at the highland games - yes that story can come out again too) I honestly think you are one of the few guys who has perfected the art of genuine charm without coming across as cheesy (for want of a better word sorry!)


anyway you know we all love you and you'd sell that cheese with long hair or even if you looked like SH (but then again SH was quite nice looking too...)

Please don't, get a tattoo or grow a beard instead...but not a grey ponytail. That look only works on a few young men (i.e. Robert Plant at the height of Zeppelin) if at all.
Young men don't have grey hair. That's just the oldies. I suggest a bandana . Then there's no need for a pony tail

Jeff Bridges is older and he also gets away with long(ish) hair and a beard. To answer DB's question: it depends. But in general, nah...you really need to look in a certain way and have enough hair to begin with.

But you did cut your hair short though, didn't you?



I must confess yes I did, it had been a long while since I'd seen my ears.
I didn't tell her I just met her at the airport arrivals, her smile said it all.

Re: Laydeeez, you love the locks, yes? Yes?

A 42 year old friend of mines in Glasgow has dark wavy locks down to his waist, glasses and a beard, but he's an IT geek so gets away with it

The long hair thing takes me back to a weekend we spent in York back in 1987. We went out for a curry and our table was divided from the one next to it by an openwork screen. Anyway, a couple came in, guy was about 40 and wearing a cream jacket with the sleeves pushed up Miami Vice style. He was sporting long blonde spiked up hair a la Rod Stewart. When he sat down on the other side of the screen we noticed he had a massive bald patch in the middle of his head and we were trying not to laugh out loud. The fact he was wearing a red carnation in his buttonhole and the conversation between the two was so stilted made us think it was a date set up by a service back then called Dateline who used to advertise in magazines and nationwide local newspapers

When I think back to it now, the guy reminds me of a cross between Kirk St Moritz from the Dear John sitcom and that dodgy British pornstar Ben Dover. For that reason I'll pass on men with long hair
