What Hair Length Do You Prefer?

My kids recently pointed out that my hairline is beginning to recede. I really appreciate their keen observations and the reminder that male patterned baldness has commenced for me. Maybe some day I will have the same hair style as Phil Collins. This got me thinking about how much hair some people have and the different ways they can wear it. I thought I'd do a quick poll and get some feedback to see which of these hairstyles (not the men) you prefer. Guys can feel free to participate too.


I decided to start with the longest I could find. I didn't want to gross you out with a picture of Willy Nelson, but I don't think Fabio is much better either.


Michael Landon sported the long look too, but it came across as looking a little more natural. I don't think he spent a lot of time in front of the mirror brushing it out each night.


Johnny Depp has had a variety of hair styles and lengths over the years, but here he shows a style in the mid-range.


Matt Damon has always been clean cut and kept his hair fairly short. My hair has been about this length for the past 15 years.



Jamie Foxx usually sports a very short look. I'd prefer mine this length since it's so easy to maintain, but my wife doesn't like it this short. 


Bruce Willis finally gave up on fighting the baldness years ago and decided to just bic it. The totally bald look is actually quite popular these days and I'd consider this some day too if it weren't for the Pac Man Fever tattoo on my scalp.

I know people can look great with different hair styles from each of these categories and there is no right answer, but which of these hair lengths do you prefer?

I like the Matt Damon look the best.
It's the most flattering and I think makes men look younger.

Long Hair is nasty on guys. I prefer shorter hair.

I prefer clean-cut (Matt Damon length)followed by mid-range. Pac-Man Fever- HA HA!

Ladies say they like long hair but in reality they like short. My wife is all about Matt Damon. I grow my hair med. and she begs me to cut it short.

But not too short.

You forgot the Long/Short look; wearing long hair slicked back to look short (and old). What is that, anyway? How about the medium-poofy 80s style? Wow! I never realized there were so many guy hairstyles.

My man has got the whole Willis-Spit'n-Shine-Hair-Free-Hair-Do Do.

He looks tough. Like a prison inmate. Gets my engine RUNNIN'!

VA VA VA VRRROOOOM!

"Pac Man Fever" had me laughing. I suppose it could be worse. Lets have a contest :-). I think Matt Damon is fine looking but you overlooked Mark Harmon.
Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Most def short. I even love the bic it look at as long as the shape of the head isn't deformed.

That is another fear I have about going bald. I guess some guys don't know if they have a deformed head shape until after the decide to bic it.

Some men can pull off the long hair look and look good doing it, but I could never be with a man that uses more hair product than me. Give me a guy with the Matt Damon look.

Matt Damon. Girls like it. Long hair is nasty and should only be worn by bums (who can't afford scissors), attractive indian men who are trying for the traditional look, and old motorcycle men who aren't married and want to stay that way.
- interesting thought though, we stereotype people on their haircuts a lot more than we think.
