The Response In 2015

In Celebrate by El Moreno7 Comments

2015 was the inaugural year of The Longhairs, and building a community for men with long hair.

It was our first year of content, producing a blog post once a week, rain or shine, and its demands. With help from guests and contributors, we published articles, videos, tutorials, interviews, podcasts, longhair stories and more. They weren’t always perfect, but it was all original.

In Educate by El Moreno4 Comments

“How do you make your hair grow faster?”

Paired with different variations of “how do I get through the awkward stage,” these are the most common questions we get by far.

It’s understandable. The awkward stage is a pain.

Hair Ties…For Guys

In Advocate, Celebrate by El Rubio35 Comments

A few weeks ago we posted The Essential Hair Tie Review For Men, providing an overview and evaluation of a dozen styles of hair ties. The conclusions of this study called attention to a noticeable lack of hair tie options for men.

The truth is, we realized long ago there was something missing in the world. There’s a community out there that is not being served, in fact it’s being ignored.

Danny sat anxiously at Hyde Edwards Salon, waiting for his name to be called by the receptionist. Eyes closed and head leaned back he contemplated the coming weeks of effort, commitment and awkwardness he must endure before reaching a full head of dreadlocks. “This is the beginning” he murmured to himself over the sound of blow dryers and amusing background conversations. “I’m doing this and it’s gonna be siiiccck!!” “Danny…” He looked up to see Kyra walking his way. It was time to get this extreme mass of hair under control.

The Fine 15: Top Longhairs of the NFL

In Celebrate by El RubioLeave a Comment

It’s finally here. NFL kickoff. When everyone’s team has a shot at the Super Bowl; when hopes and spirits are high; when productive Sundays are abandoned for seven consecutive hours of commercial-free, non-stop, whip-around coverage on the RedZone channel, interrupted only for intermittent sprints to the bathroom and 90 seconds to heat up a pair of Hot Pockets, capped off with a dramatic compilation of every single touchdown of the day, wrapping up just in time for a 30-minute break before Sunday Night Football kickoff between two teams you don’t care about, but you’re going to spend an additional three hours watching anyway.

Only The Brave

In Educate by El Rubio16 Comments

Gotta give it to our boy on this one. Registered longhair “Ross Littlejohn,” reporting from the field in Scotland, aptly named this sick as you-know-what hybrid longhair style, which he witnessed at a Scottish wedding no less, “The Brave.” Well said, Littlejohn…if that is your real name. So we had to dial this one up you. Not only does this get your hair out your face, but features a combination of wearing it down and twisting it up. Instant classic. Try it. Wear it. Bravely.

Quick Tips is LIVE

In Educate by El Rubio2 Comments

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.

How A Traveler Became A Longhair

In Advocate by El Rubio36 Comments

“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.”
