We are pleased to present the entries we’ve received in the Hair Ties For Guys Design Contest & Community Showcase. 16 design collections were submitted, along with 10 individual hair tie designs.
Participants applied their creative artwork to The White Ties, a newly released product inspired by one of The Longhairs’ core values: Creativity and authenticity.
We’re deeply grateful for all the designs we received. We saw great care and attention to detail, ideas we had never thought of, and some masterfully creative designs.
The results of the community vote were tabulated and the results were no less than shocking. With over 750 votes cast, the totals were revealed on Selection Sunday LIVE, available via reply below for your entertainment.
Hosted by El Chuckarino and Jefferson Jay, the show is packed with all the juice you would expect from the boys, culminating in a surprise announcement from The Longhairs.
hint: new product release...with a coupon!
Watch the replay of Selection Sunday LIVE, see the winners of the community vote, and hear the big announcement.

I'm a fan of gothic art and culture so of course a gothic theme was the first thing I thought of. The top tie is a simple black and orange striped tie, common goth colors and of course Halloween colors. Below that we have a pentagram pattern, pentagrams are a staple in gothic culture. Next we have the triple moon pattern and lastly we have skulls with bat wings.

Are We Having Fun??
This little contest was a profoundly worthwhile experience. It gave us a chance to put creativity and authenticity into practice, and in doing so has involved this community in the pursuit of The Longhairs core values. We’re very thankful for that.
We appreciate everyone who submitted designs and voted (still can’t believe over 750 votes!) and there is no doubt you’ll see another one of these in the future.
Looking ahead, we’ve passed ALL the designs we received over to El Gustavo, to see what we can whip up for our next round of new hair ties collections.
Stay tuned for updates, and with a final thank you to everyone who participated, here is a coupon for these brand new, just released collections of Hair Ties For Guys!
