Handing Out Longhair Referral Cards
We started with a box of 2000. Now we’re down to 50, meaning there are 1950 longhairs referral cards out there in the world. Hopefully they’ve fallen into the right hands.
A Referral ScenarioWe’ve met longhairs from nine years old to 70+, and the reaction we get is great. Nine out of 10 longhairs are stoked to get a referral card. It usually goes like this: quick glance, interest, closer inspection, recognition, “The Longhairs…”, slow head-nod, flip to back of card, resounding head nod, look up, expression of approval, but what IS this??!
This sequence unfolds, and almost every guy is pumped. Here are some candid responses from real-life longhairs:
“Yeeeah, The Longhairs!”
“This is the greatest thing I have ever seen.”
“NOW THIS IS WHAT I’M TALKIN ABOUT!!!”
“This is what I’ve been waiting for.”
“Do you guys have a secret handshake?”
Also, two grown men have hugged me.
What Does This Mean?It’s great to see a positive response. Guys with long hair are seriously down for long hair.
But there are thousands of longhairs out there still calling their highball a manbun. They’re in longhair hotbed zones like Portland, Seattle, Denver, Santa Cruz, Bozeman, Jackson Hole, Lake Tahoe, Boulder, Austin, Nashville and Albuquerque. That’s not to mention our international brethren, or solitary longhairs residing in shorthair territories.
We aim to reach them. Because every longhair should have a place to celebrate Hair Whip Wednesday.
So raise a glass boys, and keep lettin it ride.
Want to help?
This should happen, the long hairs should have a universal hand shake! So when you get a referral card but you are already a brother you just say “hair whip Wednesday” and do the hand shake! Just something simple like troy and abed in community!
Dude awesome idea!
I damn well knew something like this existed. From this Mexican-Indian American longhair, I’ve just followed girls’ advice and tutorials about maintaining long hair. This metalhead software engineer in the making needs to tell the others that they’ve made the right decision. My weapon of choice is Mane and Tail, and my hair is around 2 feet down to my elbows. If you can whip it, whip it good.
Yo Julius! You were damn well right. You’ll need to show us this fabled ‘Mane and Tail’ on the Weapon of Choice post https://blog.thelonghairs.us/selecting-a-weapon-of-choice/. Also interested to learn more about long hair in Native American culture, we’ve learned some but we need to understand the full story. Come by the Longhairs HQ in Little Italy if you’re in San Diego. Hot pack of referral cards is heading your way, rep it hard and whip it good.
