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.

In Celebrate by El RubioLeave a Comment

For 12 years the Longhairs have embarked on an annual New Year’s adventure and celebration at mountain locations across the western United States. We call this trip The Experience, or EXP. On this 12th consecutive year we write you from our mountain lodge in Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico, at 9,500 feet, 9 degrees, in a snowstorm.
