You’re a guy with long hair; or maybe you want to grow your hair out. But how do you overcome the naysayers? With the many pressures of society and your peers, it can be a challenge—especially if you’re in high school. Here’s how one determined longhair has learned to wear his hair with confidence.
Blog post #156 is a special one, that’s because we’ve published a blog post every single week for three straight years. We’ve never missed. Now we’re asking you to SOUND OFF, let us know you’re here with a Longhairs community ROLL CALL.
It’s a time of year for The Longhairs to give thanks, and with gratitude we need your VOTE to help Children With Hair Loss win a $10K donation in the The Level One Bank 10K Project.

A fellow at a bar made a polite suggestion recently: “you should cut your hair.”
Despite the shocking absurdity of his recommendation, I entertained the idea. And while I can appreciate his candor, here are the top six reasons why I choose to keep lettin’ it ride.
We respect the combover, and all lengths of hairstyles. Because it’s not just about the hair; it’s about choosing unconventional, in a conventional world.
The best part of this community is hearing stories like these.
We’re compelled to share this story of a longhair connection, 30,000 ft. above Europe, over whisky, rock & roll and men’s hair ties, as told by El Mysterioso. If that is his real name.
It’s a real shocker.
Have you ever asked a man for a hair tie? No. You know why? Because it wasn’t cool…until now. Now you can get Hair Ties For Guys™, and guess what? Now it is cool.
Here’s the story behind the Hair Ties For Guys™ commercial.

Not only did Sam get the bound shears permanently emblazoned upon his shoulder, thus securing himself a surefire first-round ballot into The Longhairs Hall of Fame, but he got it done at the finest tattoo shop in San Diego, Bearcat Tattoo Gallery, where Matt Heinz masterfully executed a virtually perfect rendition. Find out why he did it in the podcast.
Inspired by a letter from the mother of a young longhair, we have a message for all the boys with long hair out there. Read the letter, then go high-five a little longhair.
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.
This week we want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, or a happy holiday whatever you may celebrate, even if it’s just celebrating life.
For us, December and the approaching winter (here in the northern hemisphere), is a special time.
As you know, last week we celebrated the hair ties launch at Long Manes & Candy Canes. Many of you couldn’t make it due to the long distance, but we know you were down for it.
At the party we held the premier screening of the newest video. It shows a little different side of The Longhairs.
Chances are you know at least one man or boy with long hair. He might be a family member, boyfriend or husband, a casual acquaintance, or just a Facebook friend you don’t remember ever meeting. It could be someone you’ve known for years who always had short hair, but recently made the life decision to grow it out. You probably haven’t thought much about this guy’s long hair, or his struggle. That’s because there are things you simply don’t think about unless you are a man with long hair.
We’ve met more men with long hair in the past three months than in both of our lifetimes combined. Since Long Manes & Candy Canes we’ve been handing out referral cards to every longhair we see. 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.
