It's not been too evident from the very few recent photographs I have online at the moment, but my hair is now the longest it's ever been. But not in a hippy, greasy cheesehead kinda way. It's actually quite wavy and shiny.

From accusations of becoming a woman by one or two mates in jest, to others saying I look like I should be in a rock band (which is ironic...).

I've never ever been a fan of short or cropped hair, but I've never been a fan of blokes who have long hair, but have it greasy and dull.

I last had a haircut on July 2nd 2005, and I had a trim at the back a couple of months ago to level it and make it a bit choppier.

I personally think it's great, and hides my ears - which I've never liked. So what are your opinions of longer hair on blokes?

Male long hair was the fashion throughout the centuries, and only fell out of favour during mandatory conscription to the army during the war years and national service.

I don't believe that I should conform with everyone else and societies view of what people should look like, and what they should wear.

So what are your opinions?

We are talking about the hair found on one's HEAD, are we not?

Well without seeing a photo I can't imagine it looking anything other than daft! I'm siding with Lorns!

Put a pic up Jamez and put it to the metropol vote. You know this lot will be brutally honest and then we'll see who's in the minority :D Prove me wrong boyo ;)

And for the benefit of any new members also upload a pic of you with short hair too.

And once he's done that I might partake myself as I genuinely have exactly the same predicament.

She only wants to CHARGE you for cutting it off.

She's a bloomin' hairdresser, remember!

Slightly biased in her opinion, no doubt.

It could mean she has good taste when it comes to hair.

It's more or less like that bloke from The Mighty Boosh on BBC3. That's the closest I can describe my hair at the moment without putting a photo online.
