Dudes with long hair: LET’S TALK ABOUT THEM. Depending on your preferences, they are either gross and icky or pants-creamingly exciting. Or maybe you evaluate them on a case-by-case basis, like a rational person. But as all regular fashion blog readers know, grunge is back and has been for a while, as well as that weird “dream of the 1890s” style I like to call dapper-core. So dudes with long hair are here to stay for a bit.
Given this fact, it makes sense all those longhairs would want to do something with their locks from time to time, because long hair can get really sweaty in the summer. Or maybe they just want to look pretty! Enter Guys With Fancy Lady Hair, a fun little project that lets men in on the joy of, well, doing stuff with your hair.
For this project, Jessica Saia of The Bold Italic brought a number of men to San Francisco’s Salon Miel to see what could be made of their lustrous tresses, with sexy results. I am especially partial to the Junior Prom (above), as well as the Hippie Wedding and the Mormon Prom:
I can’t tell if I like this or if I just think the dude is hot. Whatever!
While this project was mostly meant to be silly (it’s “facing change” week at Bold Italic) in a way that doesn’t actually represent any sort of trend, I kind of like the idea that men could get creative with their hair, so maybe it will start one. I’ll admit I was resistant to the man bun at first, but I have since come to embrace it wholeheartedly. I mean, playing with your hair is fun! Why should women have a monopoly on it?
