    there is no way anyone can grow that much hair in 6 months, so people saying that have actually not tried growing their hair out.

    I actually love how much attention my hair gets. That isn’t really a pro or a con; it is probably the most subjective thing on his list.

    Also, short hair doesn’t necessarily mean cheaper haircuts. If anything, long hair makes the haircuts cheaper because you don’t need to go as often. He even mentioned that. I can use a Step Brothers quote to justify long hair in of itself: “Why do I want this? Because I want to make bank, bro. I want to get ass. I want to drive a Range Rover”.

    Long hair looks really cool. I have long hair, I love it, and have strong reservations about cutting it.

    The thing I don't like is that it does require more upkeep. And it has a tendency to get in my face and mouth, especially when I eat.

    I do tie it back in a ponytail from time-to-time, and I think the ponytail is a cool look in and of itself, but I don't personally care for it as much letting it hang out wild and free.

    Long hair is not for everyone, and I do consider going back to short hair, but I know if I do I'd immediately miss it. Same thing goes with my beard.

    Great video! Can you tell me what I should ask for in the barbers? I have thick hair and it bulges out around the corners and I'm trying to grow it out. When I was younger it grew out quite well, but the thickness always made it too bushy… Thanks in advance!

    I find it a touch both odd & silly that he had grown his hair out for 2 years, to which I means he'd just started to have "True" Long Hair after "That Awkward/Silly-Looking Stage" (where people refer to you as "Ma'am" from behind before they see your face, or ask if you're "a Musician" 😉)… and then decides to cut it without really experiencing what it was like and what you can do with it.

    ~Ian, who first grew his hair out at 13, and at 41 has had Long Hair down to his mid-back & beyond for the vast majority of his life… and yes, I AM both a Semi-Professional Musician as well as been referred to as "Ma'am" from behind (to which I grew some facial hair as both a sigh of Gender as well to cover my "Baby Face" of my early 20s 😉).

    And the answer to "Why?" is both because 1) it's simply a part of Who I Am, and 2) it looks good on me as "My Style": my hair is pretty much straight all the way down, and I missed the Receding & Thinning Hairline from my Dad's side, leaving me with just a touch of pure silver coming through as I age.

    …and "Hair Buns" are ridiculous: what are the vast majority of White Men doing, playing at Samurai or Feudal Japanese Warriors? 🙄

    I'm sure there's a reason for it, but I don't understand why the stylist trims the tips of his hair at around 1:00 if he's just going to proceed in buzzing most of it off a few seconds later..?
