Can someone post a link to the hairstyles Jenny refers to early on in this thread? I can't find them on the board here. Thanks!

I always say wear what you want. Don't ask women, don't ask men, don't post creepy fantasies, etc. It weirds people out(not saying you do). As in anything, "own it". Do what you're comfortable with. Wear your hair long, maybe gradually slip in some curls, clips, yada yada. Some girls dig it, some don't. Some girls like short buzzcuts, slicked back hair... Awesome! Now, i wouldn't say start out with a big hair blowout and walk down the road in bubbaville Alabama as your entry in coming out with your hair fetish, but otherwise, you get the idea. :)

Hello everyone


I would like to reopen this topic and once again ask: what do you think about guys with long feminine hair. And this time I don't mean these kind of extreme feminine hairstyles. The styles I mean are the styles you see for example on the victorias secret fashion shows, in shampoo commercials or in women fashion catalogues. Layers, wavy, curled with large hot rollers, ombre, lived in, balayage. There are guys who have hair like this. I myself have my hair just below collarbone. I love long hair, I love long hair on women and I would love to see these hairstyles more often on men or that there wouldn't be any difference in men and women hair. Yes a lot of you will post: there are no rules, and there is no gender in hair. As i said, on instagram you see a lot of guys with long feminine hairstyles. But i think most of them are gay. And I don't want to offend anyone. I think it is great. You guys are opening the path. You dont need no ancouragement. But what i am interested in are the straight guys who still need the courage to grow their hair long and style in a feminine way. Thats why i am asking you: what do you think, what is the point of view of the women on this forum? I posted a link down below to my hair gallery on instagram. I Iove all of them and would love to try all of them myself or see them on other men. What do you guys think. Which one do you think would match with a suit, a beard. I actually think all of them, just because i think long hair on men does look great.

So let me know what you think!

Hello, I am new here although I've come across this site in my searches for some time.
I find it encouraging when i come across men that have supportive if not encouraging wives for hairstyles or dress that falls outside of standard male styles! Yay!

Yeah it's pretty eye-boggling for me to see how old this thread is! And I think it's great you still take care of your hair Ric. Hair styling isn't for everyone, male or female. My husband just enjoys it! It's too bad they left the forum. Of course time passes. Thank You!

Ha! It's kind of fun to see new interest in this old thread. I've always liked this one. Jenny hasn't posted on this forum for 8 years, so I doubt if she's going to reply, though. My guess is she and the then BF have settled into doing more boring normal things with their hair. I had some PM correspondences with Dawn for awhile 6 years ago, but she hasn't posted her since then.

I wish I had an industrious wife like you, D1. I still wear my hair long (like about 18" right now), but I get kind of lazy with the hairstyling these days. Awhile back I picked up some huge 3" rollers and occasionally try to set it in sort of a Jen Aniston look, but most days I pony it. I did pick up one of those bottle stopper looking gadgets that help support a high pony and make it big and bouncy ("Beauty Hair Ponytail Holder and Enhancer"). Alas, I've never been very good at braids, though.

Ooh I'd also love to see how it turned out Jenny! Please send a picture if you could! 

Just got my husband to grow out his hair. It's naturally blonde. I had it bobbed on him for a while, on a cute Taylor Swift look, but I asked him to grow it out eventually to experiment with it.

It's mid back on him now and I LOVE IT!!!!

Braids and Ponytails used to be what I put him in normally. Only high ponytails that is. 

Now he really likes pigtails a lot! I actually got this super cute look on him one day. I took both his pigtails and curled them up into buns on the top of his head. I left out a little hair to make this cute like bangs-ish look.  

I don't have a picture of him with it, but here's one of a girl with it. 

https://imgur.com/5WTEOur
Actually right at the base of the bun I put two pink velvet hairbows! He even went out with it with me!
We got a few comments, but most of the people in my neighborhood love his hair!

Again Jenny let me know about those pictures!

Hi ya

 Jenny-B Im relatively new to the net and not long ago found this site, I really enjoy reading your threads re Nathan having his hair styled have just read one where you say Weve Done It what a lucky fellow to have such an understanding girlfriend as you, applying makeup an all   Thumbs%20Up  Glad you 3 decided on a style seen the picture looks great http://www.bartcop.com/ll-05.jpg  and I can only imagine how it looked when Kara curled it Big%20smile

 I am 52 and trying to grow my hair just so its long enough to have it set on perm rods, as I have my family and nephews to consider, is there a way I could maintain my hair in a tidy fashion so that it looks neat but still retains its length? (Sorry I havent told you very thin on top so the sides tend to get bushy and back goes wavy) I am trying to get by another 2 months before a salon appt for a set Tongue  daisy any suggestions of what I should wear to the salon ?

Hi ya

Dawn-P just seen your post 22 March 08 unfortunately I have very short hair but now trying to grow this out again, because I wish for longer hair it seems to be taking an age  Crywould my age dictate how fast hair grows?  Approx 4 years ago I went to a salon with the intention of having my hair curled she offered to set my hair on perm rods  Thumbs%20Up  and assured me that all the curls and waves would go as soon as I next washed my hair this was fine with me (as I feel it could ruin my home life and the close relationship I hold with my sister) I enjoyed every minute of the experience and ambience was wonderful she even asked me to help by passing perm papers after she had applied setting lotion to each section before rolling it in place, at last a place I could identify with, my hair in perm rods and sitting there with a pink hair net on, chatting to other women having perms.  daisy  She saw I enjoyed being pampered and the boost it had made to my confidence and was asked me if I would like this again, make an appointment and ask for me she said giving me a salon card with her name on. After leaving salon I spent a good 5 hours with these curls before having them washed out. Now at the age of 52 and a bald patch on top I wish to have my hair set on perm rods again, I been back to the salon to find out if she still works there (I kept a note of her name on my computer) I was told yes but now only on Saturdays, question Dawn if she used a Setting Gel as Sarah used on Brain would curls and waves be more defined but still come out next wash? Please could you ask Sarah what would be best Setting Lotion or Setting Gel? When I make this appt I would like to wear some feminine clothes any suggestions please, was wondering would the wearing of makeup soften my appearance to help me fit in if so could you advise what sort of facial foundation would cover my growth?  There is a nail bar near the salon do you think a manicure and nail polish before or after hair being set?

Hi Mystic,

 Let's just say that Sarah knows and has seen the the limits I have pushed Brian, in fact, she was a part of that too. So he will have on some makeup and of course his nails will be polished. As far as the hair goes, I am hoping that since the wedding is in June, there will be plenty of hair to at least pull off a half updo. I know all of this sounds far out but since there won't be many people there that knows us, she said give him the works. And the people that do know us already know that he occasionally makes an appearance like this and will not be shockedWink

Hey Dawn,

What does Sarah want Brian to do for her wedding?  Is it limited to a hairstyle?  Just curious.

Nice to have a quick response from you. As said by you my wife great takes care of my hair and so do i. As far as going out is concerned, we dont experiment much , but for a long pony tail or a high bun. Now adays to keep my hair secure because of my day job, i sport straight long simple plaits.
 
My wife is very careful that i am also very comfortable with whatever i do. But nowadays i am ok with almost every style because i feel i am mentally masculine enough to sport long hair with any style.
 
Do keep in touch. Please post a photo of your b/f is possible.

Hi Vivek, I did see the pic of your hair and it is very impressive. I can tell you (and your wife) have taken very good care of it. You must give her my regards. Does she have any plans for a different style or another outing planned where she can fix it up again? I have a lot of fun just thinking of reasons to get Brian all dolled up and planning is part of the fun. Brian and I are going to two weddings soon, one in May and one in June. The one in June is Sarah's wedding (our stylist) and she has given specific instructions on how she wants Brian to look at her wedding. I told Brian, with everything she has done for us, he will look the way she wants!Smile He will not be getting off very easy on the first wedding eitherWink. I did set his hair this past weekend and was able to play with different styles on his shorter bob he now has. He was adorable!
 Keep in touch and I will do the same.
Dawn

Nice to read your experiences. Being a guy with quite long and voluminous hair ( I had posted my pic elsewhere in this thread ) i can understand your b/f feelings. I too went through such experiences . I am sure that your b/f is silently admiring your hair job on him.  My wife also loves to play and experiment with my hair.
 
It so happened that once we had a bet on the outcome of a famous cricket match. In the event of my loss , i had to accompany her in outing with the hair style of her choice. Remember it was two years back , when i was quite naive to sport long hair outside but within my heart i had the desire to do so. In fact i lost the bet  much to my delight .
 
Actually i had never shaved my mousch and had my beards to support my long hair ( around 30 inches at that time and now it is at 32 inches ). She started the experiment on a saturday evening. First she had me clean shaven and then applied shampoo on my hair and washed to it.Then she applied french plaits using a lot of hair accessories. My goodness - initially i was a bit uncomfortable to see myself without mousch and a long hair - rather well styled with long plaits and with a lot of clips - actually it was quite feminish. I was initially a bit nervous as this was the first time we went out with my hair carefully styled. She was a bit confused about my co-operation and thought that probably i am not ok with it. On the other hand i wanted such experiences but i was a bit nervous when that thing actually happened.
 
The result was fantastic and i enjoyed the outing much to the comfort of my wife and she was also happy.
 
Do keep us posted on such experiments on your b/f

 Hi guys,
 First, I want to thank all the people that have written and contacted me....WOW! I am overwhelmed! I promise to answer each pm but just give me a little time. The best thing I can do is tell you about my bf on this site and let everyone read it. I am afraid this may be long but it does cover almost four years. You have to remember that I love my bf and some things will have to be kept private and you will just have to accept that. But still a lot of good things to tell.
 I am in my late 20's and 1 yr older than my bf. We met at a cookout 4 yrs ago next month. At that time, Brian had hair just past his collar (long enough to have been shaped into a cute bob), very pretty but needed a girls' touch to really make it stand out. He is not a big guy and is somewhat pretty for a guy. We started dating and about 3 months later he moved in with me. I immediately took over his hair and a few other things.Wink I set him up with Sarah (my stylist), who is one of my best friends that I went to school with, and she got him in the program quick. First trip, she did some trimming on his hair and eyebrows (just a little) and planned with me on what would be done each appointment to get him where I wanted. I told her to pierce his ears the next time she had him in the chair. I had him on a good shampoo and conditioner and you could really tell a difference in his hair in a week. I would also use some clips and barrettes on him when we were at home and see how he reacted. I learned quick that he was reluctant to have some of these things done to him but I felt I could break him of that feeling. After a while, he was getting comfortable around me being a little girly but the poor guy was scared stiff when I tried to take him out with a clip or pin in his hair.....was definitely going to be challenging. Sarah was very clever to schedule some of his appointments when she knew there would be another guy there having something done to his hair. Within 6 months, he had witnessed a guy getting a perm, highlights and a couple of girly styles. This did help when it came time to push things further with him. After about a little over a year of being under Sarah's care, Brian's hair was very beautiful and getting very girly. We kept the length just past his shoulders and mostly one length except for the tapered sides. There was so much you could do with it now. He was also getting much more relaxed having things done to his hair. I had decided to really get his hair dolled up one day and had Sarah come to my house one Sunday afternoon. I had already told him that we were going to play with his hair and experiment with it some. Like I said, he had gotten comfortable around Sarah and did not complain. I did set a chair in the living room so he could watch a football game while we went to work on him. We used a setting gel and set his hair in med and small rollers. He was a good sport about the whole thing and I think he enjoyed it but would not admit it. I fixed a lunch for all of us and we ate while his hair dried. When we took the rollers out, Sarah pulled both sides back and clipped it close to his crown. The back of his head was so full of beautiful curls! And with the side bangs hanging down and add the fact that he had earrings and his eyebrows had a nice shape to them..... he was sooo girly looking! When he saw how he looked he did not say anything and that told me he kind of liked it or he would have complained. As time went on, I would do little things to his hair when we would go out. I loved having him in soft curls and waves and got this look by using a curling iron and some spray. He finally let me roll his hair on Saturday mornings and he would keep them in most of the day until we would go out. I thought it would be cute if he learned to roll his own hair and gave him some intense training on just that. It did not take long for him to master the sides but he struggled with the back. He looked so cute sitting at my vanity trying to turn his head enough to see the back of it so he could roll it. I finally got him to understand that it is a matter of feel and I am happy to say he has now mastered it! He also rolls my hair for me sometimes or I will do his and he will do mine. So this is the way it stayed for quite a while and just recently, I decided he was ready for a change. I was ready for him to have a really cute shorter style. I looked quite a while at different pictures and finally saw what I knew would look great on him. If you watched the movie Bourne Supremacy, you would see how Julia Stiles had her hair.... a really cute type of bob. Still plenty of hair to work with and just super cute! I talked with Sarah and she agreed his hair would do great with it and it would fit his face perfectly. Now, before I go any further, I need to change the subject for a minute. I told you I live in the south....NC to be more precise. I am a avid UNC basketball fan and Brian is the same with Duke. Well, we always have these little bets when they play and when Duke won in their first meeting, he made a very bold bet that the loser of the next game would get a perm (he likes it when my hair is curly). He figured since they won at UNC it would be a sure bet for them to win at home. I think we all know how that game came out and when it was over I just looked over at my very rejected bf and told him he will look darling with curls! I set it up with Sarah for the next Sat and all that week he begged me to reconsider. Well, we do have "trade-offs" with our bets sometimes and I agreed to trade the perm for high lights. Two weeks ago Brian became the proud owner of a super cute bob with highlights. He is doing very well with it but has learned that it helps to have clips and barrettes to keep it out of his face. I plan on keeping it like this for a while and will try setting it in small rollers soon to see how it looks, will let you know how that turns out.
 I know this is a long story but you would not believe how much I cut out. I hope everyone enjoys reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Hi guys, I must say I love this site, there are so many interesting (and nice) people here. You guys in the pics have very beautiful hair! And some of these stories are fascinating. I, too, have a very interesting story to share about my bf, but just wanted to get acquainted with everyone first. I have been a member for sometime now but have not posted much. I have been in connection with several people through pm. I do live in the south and do have a beautiful bf. Hope to make some friends here.
