Jenny B,
 
It's been about three months since your last posts before Christmas. Have you been successful in getting Nathan to highlight or color his hair? Is he still getting it styled?
 
It seems like you get really excited about making him beautiful. No wonder you want him to have his ears pierced; then, with make-up and hairstyle, he would be your dream guy. I'll bet he will do it for you if you take small steps; you seem to have friends who think like you and will help.
 
So, what is next?

Hai jenny
 
Its long time that we heard something from you. Please keep us updated
 
In the mean time my wife saw these threads and she was really amused. She requested me whether she could style my hair with the help of a styler for which i obliged.
 
It was last saturday when the stylist came to my house. My wife's wish was to experiment my hair with a lot of hair styles - in fact more feminine styles also. But she takes care to see that no one is around when she wants to do such things - especially my son who is around 4 years. Last saturday she said that she wanted to experiment some feminine styles with my hair ( By the way my hair is around 32 inches ) , when my son was not around .
 
I normally trim my mousch and shave my beard once in three days and may once in 6 months i shave my mousch. The stylist asked me how comfortable i would be in shaving my mousch on that day. I told her that i am masculine enough mentally to sport long hair and go without mousch.
 
There started the dressing and my mousch and beard was shaved and then the experimentations started. I told them that i am not comfortable with rollers probably because i was not aware of how it would be or probably i lack patience for it. The hair styles ranged from french plaits, high buns with lot of hair sticks, the regular plaits , and two plaits. Eventhough i was a bit nervous, i enjoyed the way my tresses was being treated. In fact i was more comfortable with the single long plait and the french braids quite long which starts from almost the top of the head.
 
In fact i looked much feminine with long hair and shaven mousch  but as i said i thought it is more mental. But i did not venture with such styles outside as i normally sport a long pony tail or a simple single plait. In fact my wife was v ery happy with the experimentations.

If you click on the reply on the right of a message it brings up the box to type a reply. You will notice and icon like a tree above the box. Click on that and then click browse. You should then be able to see pictures on your computer and upload them. In doing this your pictures should appear in the post.
 
Good luck

Do you have them online somewhere? If not, you need to host them online somewhere (villagephotos.com is free). Them follow the "forum codes" when you post and fill in the URL of your pics.
 
If really have pictures of what you described, we would love to see them.

Hi Jenny

First post to your thread here and I have to tell you that your boyfriend is about as lucky as they come! I LOVE having my hair played with and curled, but my wife doesn't share the passion. So reading your post and all the responses really made me jealous I have to believe that if he's letting you do all this there's no question he really enjoys it. I have been doing highlights for years from very dramatic blonde contrasts to more subtle reds and coppers with my natural dark reddish brown color. I almost always have my stylist "do" me curly when I go to see here and she loves it too. When I was younger I had several perms and my hair handled it very well, but now my wife would be so disappointed if I did permed curls that its just not worth it. But now as I've been growing my hair out (a couple inches above my shoulders) I absolutely love doing corkscrew curls with my layered bob style (using a 3/8" curling iron using a marcel process gives unbelievable firm and gorgeous curls). Anyway, just wanted to encourage you to keep being supportive of styling your boyfriend. You should test the water to see if he would do a perm!

Cheers

Last week myself and i had attended a spiritual discourse in which one of the topic was our ability to shed our inhibitions in things which did not have any moral connotations. The discussions was about expression of emotions and choice of living etc. At the end of the discourse every participant was encouraged to do anything which could shed their inhibition. Some who had stage fear tried to sing etc. When my turn came i was asked whether my wife could dress my hair in front of the gathering with four or five styles. Initially he was surprised to see the length and volume of my hair. ( By the way, i am at 32 inches ). I was not so reluctant but my wife thought that i was not very comfortable.She dressed my hair in four styles-simple ringlets, two plaits, long pony and in bun style. In fact my good ness i was feeling very nervous , but at the same time i thought that this is probably an occassion wherein i could shed some inhibitions on this. I was really enjoying the way she did it and it was a nice experience to have the hair dressed. In fact other women gathered round and started giving suggestions and were giving their hair accessories as we were not prepared for this. Eventually i ended up enjoying every part of it

This was probably one more occassion wherein we could probably understand that women can complement men with long hair.

"By the way, my wife likes the color and highlights in my hair. 
 
Mystic"

Ditto that.  My wife had already worked it out with her stylist that I was to have my hair colored and highlighted (with a cap) about 10 years ago.  I still get it done every other month.  However, I now have it foiled instead of the cap.  I have a ton of highlites in my hair.  I have even done them "chunky" at times.  I have a longer cut which I style daily with a hot iron and lots of product.  My wife and I think it is very okay for a male to have somewhat feminine hair.

Pushing the envelope a bit? Wink
 
It sounds like he has really taken well to the new style.  I don't think I would classify it as torture anymore.  You know he probably likes all this attention you are giving him with his hair and all.
 
Good luck with the color.  I think he will like it if you get him there.
 
By the way, my wife likes the color and highlights in my hair.

Thanks for the supportive comments.  Sometimes I think that I'm awful encouraging my boyfriend to do this stuff.  But thinking about him with CU's color and his great hair.....ooh, gives me tingles!!!

The coloring/highlighting sounds like it would be fun. Would Kara do that, or would Nathan have to go to aother salon? I was also curious; since he had such long hair when you met. did he also have his ears pierced? Sometimes guys do both long hair and earrings.

Good question ald_fld (what is that anyway?).  I've actually been assuming that Kara can do it, but haven't really thought about whether she actually can.  I'm thinking that I have a few memories of being in there when some coloring was going on, but maybe not.....  I'll have to ask. Kara and I are friends.  If she can't do it, I"m sure she'll be able to refer me to a good stylist.

Nothing really new per se, but Nathan is keeping the style.  He's had it trimmed twice now.  Actually, the second time he had it trimmed, Kara changed things up just a little bit and made the style slightly more dramatic I guess would be a good word for it.  She did less blending between layers which really makes them stand out.  He's also continuing to grow the length Smile and it's now down around mid-back. 
 
Of course, him having such a great hairstyle makes me want to play with his hair even more often than before, so I'm sure that Nathan would tell you that he's getting way more than his fair share of curls and braids and styling products LOL.  I also introduced him to hair accessories when he got a little frustrated with trying to control the shoter layers/bangs around his face and he seems to actually like them, which is just fine with me.  He even wears them out sometimes, though never in front of his guy friends for obvious reasons.  But he's gone places like the grocery store and the movies with his hair fastened in barrettes or pulled up in a big clip.  So cute!
 
Recently I've become a bit fascinated with the idea of going for a slightly lighter color than his current dark blonde.  So the next step might be getting him some coloring or highlights.  Hey, he's done Lindsay Lohan already, so maybe it's time for a little Carrie Underwood!!  Wink  Of course he hasn't actually agreed to anything.......yet!!
