In another throwback fireside reading, here in Episode 42 of Let It Ride we revisit a foundational community post where we hold the line on the combover and other conspicuous hairstyles.
While others may snicker or sneer, we simply offer a nod of approval. Because man, you gotta let it ride any way you can.
We don’t just respect the combover, but all hair styles and configurations, long or short, and those who can’t or choose not to grow their hair, for whatever reason.
Besides, who cares how another man wears his hair? Or a woman for that matter?
Sure, there might be some funny-looking hairstyles. But who cares? We don’t have to like it. We can still respect it. Because what it really comes down to is…
Every man and woman should have the right to grow their hair however long they wish, without being denied employment, education or opportunity due to the length of their hair.
And to Guide Us Through Our Philosophical Ruminations
In his impassioned reading, El Gustavo implores us that whether it’s the combover, the full cue ball, or even the undercut, let’s show respect to all.
Because long hair… long hair lives in the heart.
