Street Cred
Commanding a level of respect in an urban environment due to experience in or knowledge of issues affecting those environments.

Long hair might not fly in a job interview or with your girlfriend’s parents. So where is the flow acceptable? Where do the locks fly freely? Where does long hair get you street cred?

Refreshingly, such havens exist. Here are the top 11 places where long hair is not only tolerated, but respected...and maybe even appreciated.

1. Surfing

When you paddle out with long hair it will be assumed you know what you’re doing. If you’re this kid you can even snake waves with zero questions asked.

2. On the Mountain

“What up man!” Can be expected when sitting down on a chairlift full of hip local skiers and snowboarders.
Long hair is always appreciated on the mountain.

3. The 60’s and 70’s

From the hippie era of the ‘60’s to the anti-establishment of the 70’s, long hair gave you instant street cred with the in-crowd.

4. Cannabis Dispensary

Whether or not you smoke weed people think you do. Step right in and get a little extra hook up from the crew.

5. On the Dance Floor

People know they can expect more from you on the dance floor. Plus you have hair whips in your arsenal which immediately brings another level of intensity.

6. Middle Earth

Universally approved by Legolas, Aragorn and all the free peoples of Middle Earth.

7. At a Concert

There is no question you’re here to party. And you’re probably in the band.

8. The Sturgis Biker Rally

Besides owning a motorcycle, nothing says “I’m in the game” like long hair and leather at the world-renown biker rally.

9. Tattoo Shops

Do guys with long hair tend to have tattoos, or do guys with tattoos tend to have long hair? Whether it’s the chicken or the egg they just seem to go together.

10. Shark Tank

It’s hard to get more street cred than hair whipping and high-fiving with The Markaledon on Shark Tank.

11. At The Longhairs Global HQ

When you show up at The Longhairs Headquarters, you’ll know you’re in the right place.

Remember, for every place your hair gets you funny looks, there are places where long hair gets you street cred.

Where else does long hair get you street cred?


  1. Another place for long-hairs, a wrestling event. Or at a gym. Long hair + bulging muscles = I bet many women are now melting. Believe that.

  2. Thanks to COVID (?), a LOT of dudes at the high tech site I’ve work at for 26 years have been growing their hair. I’ve been growing it since the orange guy got into the WH in 2017. Protesting all things R. Except for the band RUSH. :p
    Dave in NY

      1. Street cred…love it! Screw the belief that you will have issues at job interviews. I tend to believe that the guy interviewing wishes he had long locks!

        Oh, I’m conservative, need more of us to get real and let-er-flow ;). Passing out the word and the long hair club cards!

          CT hell yeah man! Glad to have you here and thanks for handing out referral cards! Hope you get some great reactions

  3. Hangin’ with my homie libertard friends; they dig it.
    Gots a conservative bud, says hes’ thinkin’ ’bout growin’ his hair out. Why. Cuz I am.
    Oh dear. Did I drag politics in?
    My bad.

  4. And playing in a band. Just because having long hair at 55 and playing in bars is cool as f**k.

  5. I can’t wait to one day visit THE LONGHAIRS HQ ! I can totally relate to #5 ON THE DANCE FLOOR
    “People know they can take you a little more seriously on the dance floor. Plus you have hair whips in your arsenal which immediately brings another level of intensity.” I break dance and also train flips and when I do both it definitely looks even more badass because of the Longhair!
    I have the Shockers hair ties for guys and they work great on my hair! THANKS! next purchase will definitely be the YAH MONS!
