Chuck’s Uncanny Journey to Long-ish Hair

In Celebrate by El Chuckarino16 Comments

One Month From the Skin

Most of us know him as the mild-mannered shorthair quietly managing The Longhairs social media accounts since 2015. Today we are pleased to present El Chuckarino’s first official hair update.

Dating back to his 2016 debut in Confessions of a Shorthair, Chuck has vehemently resisted our continued and increasingly aggressive overtures to grow his hair out...much to our chagrin.

That’s not to say he hasn’t been a good sport. From the Shark Tank open casting to his dramatic appearance on KUSI, he’s always been willing to strap it up for the team when his number has been called.

Even so we’ve always held out hope that maybe someday…he would let it ride.

Maybe it was coronavirus, or his punishing workout regimen, or possibly his self-appointed promotion to “Content Manager,” but something has inspired ‘ole Chuck while simultaneously stimulating his follicles.

Today he is COMMITTED to growing his hair out, and if that’s not enough we have him on record boldly proclaiming he will not cut his hair until “as long as coronavirus is on this planet,” a slight overextension of verbiage perhaps, but we know he is a man of his word.

With sufficient groundwork laid and hype adequately built, we proudly present El Chuckarino’s first hair update. Way to go Chuck…we’ve always been believers.

  1. I love the awkward intro haha, the undercover brother. Way to go CHUCK!

  2. Currently creeping through the awkward and the headwraps have come in clutch!

  3. From your undercover escapades I can honestly say you look you look GREAT with long hair Chuckarino.
    Keep growing it!!!

  4. YEEEEEHAA! Finally, you’re IN! You’ve got access to all th knowledge and the best stuff around indeed, so why not grow it out? When I first started my longhair journey waaayyy back in 1988 or so, I didn’t have all that info and whole team behind me to encourage and uplift me when I was bit down and literally wanted to tear it off 😉 I didn’t have a head band, or a cap, or pomade or gel, all I had was my trusted pair of Sony MDR-51 headphones, which I had on as much as possible to keep that hair back 😉
    Now, some 32 years later I didn’t regret it a single SECOND I went through this awkward stage! My hair (and beard) just had a trim 2 days ago, and now it looks tidy again. As soon as your hair is long enough to have your first top knot or man bun, ehhhh… sorry, HIGH BALL, you will actually notice: long hair is EASY! All you need is a hair tie and you’re good to go for the rest of the day! People with shorter hair may suffer “bad hair days” but with long hair, that’s nearly impossible: that hair tie will do its job 🙂

    I wish you lots of fun in your hair journey… just hold on and don’t give up!

    1. Timmo….never considered the HEADPHONES! Great call and inspiring comment. Glad to have you here man.

      Thanks for the inspiration, Timmo! Love to hear about creative tools like headphones to hold your hair back. I will keep lettin’ it ride.🤘

    3. Hey Timmo, Gotta agree long hair isn’t so much trouble as people always told me it would be . Now that I have some GREAT! Hair ties it’s even going to be better.

  5. Hang in there. The long journey with some bumps along the way will be worth it. Be patient and try to avoid mirrors for a few months or so!!!

    2. a place where mirrors are banned: a catholic monastery, but monks are usually very shot hair…lol
      continue, day after day, resisting the urge going today to the barber’s, bro !!!
