Also, my advice to dudes that had long hair and now do not and sort of miss it: grow an enormous beard.
Before World War One men generally had longer hair and beards. However, short hair on men has often been enforced as a mean of control, in police, military and other forces that require obedience and discipline. Slaves and defeated armies were often required to shave their heads. The trench warfare in 1914 to 1918 exposed men to flea and lice infestations, which prompted the order to cut short hair, establishing a norm that has persisted.
For the love of god do you have some sort of guide on how to use that stuff? I defer to my barber on this matter and he doesn't want to trim my mustache over my lip because apparently you're supposed to sweep it to the side instead of trimming it like I always did. He's an Old Man barber so I figure he knows what he's talking about, but every time I try to use mustache wax I end up with a gross sticky mess.
14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him,
15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.
If you have a square face, you'll want to play down your strong, angular jaw...Draw attention to your eyes and cheekbones...
Keith Talent: Dudes with longhair? Why? There are plenty of ways to say to the world "I'm a kick ass bro and do not care for your societal conventions" without being uncomfortable the whole time. Holy shit, I cannot think a single way to voluntarily make your life worse/more inconvenient/uncomfortable than the male pony tail. Oh, and we are all kinda laughing at you behind your back. If not actually laughing slightly sniggering.
The fear of cultivation is pretty deep for men, to the point that guys spend more time trying to create the illusion of non-cultivation than if they'd just stop being such babies about possibly being seen as sissies and coif properly.
