When You See Other Longhairs

In Celebrate by El Rubio34 Comments

You might not have noticed before. When you had short hair, it rarely caught your attention.

Now you notice. Flowing, ponytail’d, tied up or braided, you see other guys with long hair. You might even wonder things like, how long has he been growing it? What kind of hair ties are those? What kind of conditioner does he use?

Even if you don’t ask yourself those questions, now that you have long hair you probably notice other guys with long hair. What do you do when you see them?

Until now, maybe you’ve done nothing. But the truth is, we are a community. Longhair Godfather Bill Choisser estimates 2%-5% of the adult male population has long hair. That’s only 2-5 out of every 100 guys.


That Fact Alone Makes Us A Community

But so do other things. Straight or curly, neat or messy, tied up or loose and flowing, we’ve made the choice to grow our hair. We know about things and deal with struggles that short-haired dudes have never thought of. And we’re willing to risk being different.


When you see other guys with long hair, there are a few things you automatically know:

  • He’s been through the awkward stage.
  • He’s had to deal with hair in his face.
  • He’s not an NBA referee.
  • He knows how to party.
  • And he’s asked himself the same questions: how often should I wash it? How do I make it grow faster? Do I need to brush it? Are ponytails ok?
We have these things in common. And that's worth celebrating.

So what should you do when you see other guys with long hair?

  1. Give him the international high-sign. The head-nod. The “I see ya.” And tell him he has great hair.

  2. If you have the means, give him the homie hookup: a discount off his bar tab, free parking, the VIP connection, inside information, the local rate, extra hot sauce, a free beer. Hook a longhair up.

  3. At the very least, if you only do one thing: hand him a Longhairs referral card. No words are required. Just an understanding.

Don’t Be Empty-Handed

      Hell yeah thank you Erik! Means a lot for us to hear that. WELCOME TO THE TEAM!

  2. I know I’m late to the party, but just wanted to say keep on keepin’ on. A man with long hair is a beauty to behold.

    And air out my head
    Gonna look for another long-haired man
    To help me make my bed”

  3. I may have over looked such a suggestion, Just a thought. Have you considered a points system towards purchase of your products with your referral cards. Maybe a personal code on the referral card only dedicated to the card giver for the card receiver to use when they purchase your products?

      YO RANDY! It’s a great idea and we want to do something like that. A project in the works. In the meantime we appreciate you handing out cards and hope you have fun doing it! Thank you man!

  4. Just an idea…. but there should be a forum connected with this blog where users can communicate, share info etc…

  5. Been fun reading this! My guitar instructor has long hair and wears it in a ponytail! He does this thing when he takes off the guitar: unhooks the strap rather than pulling it over his head! I guess that helps his hair from getting all messed up and tangled?

      Glad to have you here Lisa! Surely that is a hair issue. Comes w/ the territory.

  6. Where’s the gift bro? Am I in the first 20? I’m the proud mother of a Long Hair! ✊❤️

  7. Dude, every time you guys release something new, I get so damn excited. I can’t wait until you release more soft lids. I am so gonna get one. Your videos are so helpful too. I had to learn how to put my hair in a bun for work, and the tutorial you guys had for the “high ball” really helped. That along with how wide the hair ties for guys are, I can just toss it on up. Longhairs RULE!

      Hell yes man we are stoked to hear that! Appreciate the kind words.

      PS: new soft lids will be dropping in appx two weeks!

  8. Just handed out my first card this past Sunday. He looked at it and gave a nod of approval then said he was stoked to check you guys out! ??

  16. How long does it take for the delivery to arrive? I believe I’ve been waiting for a couple of weeks now. Looking forward to getting the cards!

    1. ChessKimo! We’ve had some cards sent back due to the address being wrong. Can you email your address to [email protected] so we can send you out another set of cards.

  17. I passed out cards on New Years Eve, to the Longhairs I was sharing the dance floor with. It was great to watch them read the card and smile!
