Yo Longhairs! Pumped up to announce Longhairs Quick Tips is now LIVE! What is Quick Tips? Quick Tips speaks to one of our fundamental mission objectives, to educate men with long hair. You see, most women have grown up since childhood learning how to take care of their hair: brushing, braiding, styling, washing, caring for, etc. Many of us guys didn’t have that luxury. Even if we had long hair as a young man we certainly weren’t braiding and brushing each other’s hair at recess. Long hair indoctrination passed us by.
“Every guy with long hair has a reason for it. Maybe it’s a statement, or a story, maybe it’s about his character and who he is. Maybe he just doesn’t like getting his hair cut. But there’s something about it for all of us.”
As a longhair there’s great pride in lettin’ it ride. You learn about yourself and your hair, and together you and your trusty strands grow an inseparable bond. These strands are the ones that have been with you since the beginning. The old vets, who were once young recruits leading the charge to your shoulders. These days though, they hold the line as the last four inches on your glorious head of hair.
You know what I’m talking about. Those pesky, annoying, face tickling, eye poking, never stay in a hair tie little shits. They’re always flying around, getting loose and causing unanticipated frustration. It’s time we put these little assholes in their place and show ’em who’s boss. How you might ask?

You’re In It Awkward stage hair. You’ve had enough. You’re cutting it off. You have awkward stage hair and you’re convinced it looks awful. You feel weird, sloppy, unprofessional, and you don’t know what the hell to do with it. You get comments from people, even your mom, telling you your hair looks bad and well-meaning advice that “you should just cut it honey.” They mean well, but they don’t understand. They’re thinking short-term, not big picture. You’ve got a date with destiny and you need to look good for it. What they don’t realize is your shoulders are throwing a party and they’re waiting for your hair to arrive. Yet, with every naysayer and glance in the mirror, doubt creeps in, as slowly as your awkward length hair seems to be growing. You question your resolve, and each day a fresh, clean haircut sounds ever-more enticing. Well friend, …

“Cry in the dojo, laugh on the battlefield,” an old proverb that pops into my mind as I lay on the jiu-jitsu mat with my long hair dripping sweat into my eyes. The warrior that coined that phrase must have been a longhair as he understands all too well the struggles of training with a mane.
