I'm a male with very nice thick hair andI love the look, shape, and swing of bob haircuts. I want to get my hair cut in a nice pretty bob with bangs but there are many negative reactions by people and societ society. Will bob cuts ever be accepted for guys? What's your opinion? What types of Bobs are more likely to be accepted on guys?

If one person does something, they're eccentric. If two people do it, it raises eyebrows. If 3 or more do it, it's a trend. In order for a trend to happen, somebody has to take the bullet and and start things. It sounds like you'd be a good candidate.

I have started. I have an earlobe length bob with full triangle bangs to my eyebrows. I hope to see a LOT of guys get Bobs so people will stop telling me to get a haircut and that only girls wear their hair in Bobs with bangs.

I've had a stacked, inverted chin+ length bob for 3 and a half years now.  For the last two years I have had lots of highlights on top of my medium brown base and the stack is colored black, a popular option with girls with bobs.  My  style is accepted by 99% of the people who see me.  I have never had negative comments, and have gotten some  compliments.  I also have double pierced ears and always wear earrings, usually 2-3" hoops in the front holes and ball studs in the back, but I wear a lot of different combinations.  I love my look, my wife allows it, and I don't see changing!!

Oh, and if you want to see some pix of my bob join the Yahoo group guyswithbobs, and you will see my pix in various albums with BobbedAtLast and the date as the folder name.I have not posted any lately but  I need to since I have a more extreme cut now, with the front long enough for the curved under ends to touch under my chin but the back still stacked short.  I am getting the font blonder, too.  I will post some more after my next salon visit in a few days.

The reality is that bobs are unisex.  There really aren't feminine or masculine bobs per say.  Hair is hair and hair cuts are hair cuts.  Bobs are bobs. 

Men have been wearing bobs forever and they are always in style.  Same for women.  Throughout history men have worn bobs although they might have been called something else. 

Sounds like you really enjoy bob hairstyles and cuts.  It's always great when people know what type of hairstyles they love to wear.  Enjoy.

This is 2014.  ANY type of bob is acceptable on any type of person - male or female.

Look at Justin Bieber & all the different hairstyles he has worn for the past few years.  The One Direction guys have all had a wide range of hairstyles.

In today's world anything goes on anyone - male or female - of any age.  I even saw a 80 year old woman in the salon who has bright Manic Panic blueberry hair. 

Pick a hairstyle you love, that will look good on with your face & features & body and don't worry about whether it is male or female, young or old.  Just enjoy it.

It's the job of your stylist to cut your hair however you want to wear it.

I now have my thick brown hair cut in a one length bob just above my shoulders with bangs. Love the way it looks and swings and all of the attention it gets me
