Nice post, Mic. I've long since ignored my "man box", but you've tried some new ones on me. I just looked up the Alice Band and ponytail comb ring and will have to try those. My hair is getting a bit thinner than I care for, so I sometimes wear one of the gadgets that hide inside your pt under the band to make it look a bit bigger. I also want to pick up a pt hairpiece or two for added fill, but it's not not easy to match color to those things when you don't dye your hair.

While looking up these things I just ran across something called a "Ponytail Cone Holder" that looks cool. I'm going to have to get one of those, too.

I normally wear my hair back in either a plastic teeth Alice Band or pulled back in side combs. On rare occasions, I worn barrettes with my wife. I only buy accessories from women’s accessory companies like Camila Paris, Tegen, Parcelona, or from Glitz4Girlz because the accessories last for years. Even though I am a man, I know that women would not buy things that did not last. Most things marked unisex like side combs, teeth headbands, barrettes, and so forth are cheaply made, break easily, cut the scalp or bend out of shape. When we were first married, my hair was down to my shoulders. We would wear a ponytail lifted up and tied with either an elastic band or a ponytail comb ring that had teeth on the sides like a rat tail comb with either side combs or a plastic teeth Alice band. I would travel alone or with her with them in. I received compliments from ladies saying my hair looks nice back in a Alice band even my stylist likes it. I never have gotten a negative comment. Most men look the other way. Men have a bad time getting out of their man box and would do nothing that strangers would question. Hair accessories can be so functional. Men have to get over it. I have always loved hair accessories and always will. I feel men will be more receptive because the use of accessories is growing. Thanks for reading.

First I want to start by saying I'm a guy. I want to offer my perspective. I grew up in the 1960s. Dad was a marine drill sergeant and Mom was a flower child. They divorced when I was 10. They had fought over just about everything including me and me included my hair length. Mom would go on about how beautiful my hair was and Dad wanted me to have a buzz cut like a real man. So after the divorce Dad decided he wanted to go back to Nam and rack up some more medals for his chest and got himself killed. He ended up with three purple hearts and at least one of everything that marines could get short of the medal of honor. Yes I'm a little bitter still after all these years that he chose to go get himself killed rather than be with his family but that's not what this post is about.

Mom got sick with cancer a few months later and so I went to live with my aunt and cousins for a couple of years. Miraculously Mom went into remission and eventually was completely cured which was rare in those days. So when I was 12 I got to go back and live with my Mom again. She hadn't seen me in nearly two years and she was in for a bit of a shock but then so was I.

Mom had lost a lot of weight and her hair was completely gone. I had grown a few inches and my hair had gone from being a military buzz cut style to over a foot long, nearly to the middle of my back. You should have seen the look on our faces when we looked at each other. She couldn't keep her hands off my hair. She didn't have any of her own for the longest time so she lived vicariously through me. She put it up in curlers (my hair was somewhat wavy, light blonde and curled a bit at the ends.) blow dried it, braided it, put it up in a bun, pony tail, pig tails, pretty much every conceivable way you could play with hair she played with mine. I missed my mom terribly and all this hair play was for me an excuse to experience some wholesome physical affection I had missed since my mom got sick. My mom probably felt the same but I could tell she just missed having hair to do stuff with so she did stuff with mine. It took about a year for her hair to grow back out again and look fairly normal. In that year my hair grew another six inches and our daily hair play continued.

By the time I was 16 Mom had graduated from cosmetology school, had long since grown back her own mane of blond hair and no longer needed a substitute head of hair to play with but continued anyways. It was 1976 and my hair was longer than anyone else's in my high school and that included the girls. It had been six years since I had my last hair cut and it was down to my butt. Mom regularly put my hair in a French braid which had evolved out of just a single braid. My classmates had just gotten so used to seeing me always with the long hair that nearly any way my hair was didn't phase anyone. I had definitely made up for all those years in my early youth forced to endure military hair style and ridicule for same.

At my HS graduation I had my hair in a French braid again but by this time my hair was nearly at knee level. Also by this time my classmates had started to call me Rapunzel or occasionally Mr. Rapunzel.

I had one girlfriend in high school and like my mom, she loved playing with my hair. I was a bit embarrassed the first time she put my hair in pigtails at school but after some ribbing pretty much nobody seemed to notice too much and I found pigtails a little more comfortable than a single pony tail due to there being a little less weight on each pigtail.

My girlfriend and I parted ways at graduation, I went to art school and she wanted to be an English teacher so we went to different schools. At art school I met my future wife. I knew she was the one when she sat down next to me in watercolor class on the first day and was all over my French braid telling me how sexy I was and brave I was wearing such a feminine style. To me it was just a convenient and comfortable style to keep my hair back and together. She kept wrapping it around her arm and burying her face in it so I figured I would ask her out. Four years later we got married. She joked about how I should be the one to wear the wedding dress since I had the hair for it. Her read hair was waist length and has been ever since.

I keep my hair in a bun these days and it has quite a bit of grey in it but I still have not had it cut since I was 10 and that is 44 years now. It takes forever to clean but my wife and daughters don't seem to mind helping.

The only thing I have regretted is waiting until ten to grow it out.

Did I say something wrong. What does not a deliberate plug mean?

Well, MicHB, I've never worn a plastic headband, but it seems like a good idea. They can create a very smooth fairly formal look and keep hair out of your face well. I think they've got quite a few over in the Hair Boutique Marketplace. I may stroll over there and pick one up (disclaimer: this was not a deliberate plug!).

One style that I really love is combing the hair back smooth with serum with a rattail comb and ten sliding on a tort headband with the teeth under the edges straight back as the ears. I kind have like it with out the poof. It is good working in the garden or outside if it is hot. I love the smooth look. Does anyone agree that this is a good style even though I am a man?

While I was dating my future wife, I fell in love with her hair and everything associated with it. I loved her side combs. She would have either one side or both sides pulled back. On her next birthday, I gave her a box of tort hair accessories including side combs, a banana barrette, barrettes, and a headband with the little comb teeth under the edges. Perhaps, I was being too forward. I told her to open it on birthday because I had to go back to college. I was kind of relieved. I was shaking so bad. I was afraid so would have thought I was some kind of nut. While studying for an exam on seventeenth century literature, she called me on the phone. I broke into a sweat but she said she was overjoyed. That was my first encounter. TO shorten this message, that led to me eventually letting my hair grow when we were married and placing side combs in my hair up on the side like she did. That led to combs with a high ponytail with a coms on the side as well as one under the pony. That led to barrettes and then to plastic headbands with teeth pulled back tight in conditioned hair. It gives it a tiny comb look. In any case, we would go places and work out in the yard having matching accessories. I eventually bought some of the things myself. This is true today. There seems no barriers between my wife and I. She get angry if I don't wear them very often. I am blessed.

Hi PaigeP & Stacey.

I have just found this site. I like the topics and posts.
It is nice to know that there are other couples who enjoy their hair and that I am not the only guy who wears hair bows.

By way of background, my mum kept my hair long as a boy and my first recollection is of her putting clips in my hair.
When I was about 7, my hair was to my shoulder blades and I normally wore it in a pony tail. For a fancy dress party, she curled my hair, tied it up in ribbons and put me in a dress. She did this for 2 or 3 more parties.

When I got married I had a bobbed hair cut and when at home would often wear bobby pins to keep my hair off my face.
One day (about 5 years ago) my wife said to me "why don't you grow your hair so we can have fun."
She started with a few clips and barrettes and as it grew would curl the ends.
When my hair got to shoulder blade length she put it in large velcro rollers for big curls. I then mentioned my childhood experience - well the flood gates opened and the boundaries were soon pushed back. Hair bows became a regular feature
My hair is now almost to waist length, my wife's is to her tail bone. We are always curling each others hair and styling it with hair bows, even making hair bows with our hair. There is generally a different style each evening At weekends, we wash each others hair, set in in rollers, let it air dry, enjoy the feeling of soft curls down our backs when the rollers are taken out, then style it with ribbons and other hair jewellery.
If we are staying in at home, she puts me in a dress.

I have only worn hair bows in the privacy of our home. My wife is keen for me to go out wearing hair bows but I have not yet plucked up the courage.
We have been invited to a fancy dress party in the near future. Is this the time to do it, what do you think.

Hi, I have thorougly enjoyed reading this post and I must say I commend all the ladies and guys soo much that enjoy embracing femininity :) I, myself, have been given feminine makeovers plenty of times and each one has been fantastic. I loved wearing dresses and getting beautiful makeup done and having my long hair done in bouncy curls and high ponytails and pigtails :) I have actually been transitioning from a male to a female and I can now fully enjoy being girly all the time and i love it :) My boyfriend is growing his hair long and I love doing cute styles on him. If anyone would like to pm or ask anything please do? much love :)
Going to awesome lengths

Paige, that's so cute that your SO will wear a ribbon! I'll have to tell my guy he's not the only one in a hairbowWink Actually I had another sighting a few weeks ago -- my 12-year-old niece is in all-star cheerleading and they had a big competition in Dallas and I went down with them. On Saturday we saw a squad that had a long-haired boy whose hair was done just like the girls: up in a high curly ponytail with a bow! He looked super-cute. We were talking to some other Moms and one of them said she's seen a guy in their district who wears the full girls' outfit. It's nice to see that guys are gaining more clothes-and-hair freedom. Please update us when you can!
Best, S

Hi, its been a while since I checked in here so I thought Id give an update on my SOs hair adventures. I think its fabulous that this post has gotten so much rersponse (& thanks for the PMs, too!).

Weve been taking a step at a time since I first wrote. TJs hair is all one-length, right at his shoulders. I really want him to do a chin-length bob but well probably wait till next spring to do that I usually cut mine that way for summer & itll be super-cute to be twinkies! My hairs naturally blonde and weve been increasing his highlights so now hes just a shade darker than me. For work he just wears it behind his ears, usually with a headband, or in a low ponytail. In the evenings & weekends I really like to do him in curls. I got an old-fashioned bonnet dryer and I set his hair in medium-size Velcro rollers and dry it under the dryer. Once hes dry I take the rollers out and pin his  curls and have him sleep in a hairnet. It gives him big bouncy curls that last for a couple of days! (Of course I have to go through the same routine.) Or Ill do us both in rollers on Saturday morning and well let them air dry for the day. Hes even worn his rollers in public a couple of times!

Ive gradually been adding accessories, too. Hes gotten used to wearing headbands and doesnt think twice about them, for work or elsewhere. Last month I finally got him to wear a ribbon on his ponytail just a navy velvet bow. It took a lot of courage for him to go out like that but luckily he got a couple of compliments, and he wears a hairbow about once a week now. My current fave do on him is to roll his hair on big rollers, then put it up in a semi-high ponytail with a bow. He looks so adorable like that with his gold hoop earrings!

So weve had a lot of fun pressing his boundaries. Id say the response has been about 80% positive.  Its so nice that a guy can try different feminine hairstyles these days! Id love to hear more from guys and gals who are into unisex hairstyling!

Hi nightshade -

Your hair sounds gorgeous -

My BF is also growing his hair out - it was his decision and I am very supportive - recently he has been styling it very girly - it was strange to me but seems from this thread many guys like to feminine -

Any suggestions how can I support him ?

This is amazing! I've never really felt the urge to post before but this topic fascinates me. I always used to go on to my girlfriend about how much I loved her hair to the extent that she encouraged me to keep growing mine. For a long time I refused to let her enjoyment of styling my hair become something that I would be willing to indulge in public but that changed two weeks ago when she persuaded me to go out with it in a ponytail tied with a ribbon. I was petrified at the prospect but it was absolutely great and I suspect now there will be no barrier to any kind of do in the future! 
A serious point - what makes women enjoy giving guys feminine hairstyles to much?!

Heya PaigeP

My girlfriend had similar request 5 years ago (we are now married) - and I had posted on this forum - she wanted me to have long hair

Initially i didnt like the idea much and refused for a looong time ... finally gave in and we started growing our hair out together .... within 2 years I had mid back length .... I have dark brown hair and she is more on reddish side .... also I would always wear it in low ponytail .... she did request lots with to spice it up but i refused .... later that year I had to relocate to Atlanta for work for 6 months ... while I was away I learnt to sytle my hair and when I got back surprised her with a gorgeous updo ....
she was very excited .... since then we have been styling each others hair ... its a very special bonding feeling .... we visit the salon together though both have different stylists ....

She loves femenizing my hair and I have really started enjoying it .... I dont do cuurls though .... she puts my hair in high ponytails, braids - french, dutch, english ... we have experimented with various hemlines too .... i like hers in Uish while I do a V ... she likes the look of V hair in a high pony ...
 
Answering some of your questions -

1.      How did you get your man comfortable using rollers?

I dont like my hair curled - I have thick straight hair and both of us like it that way .... I sometimes do waves by doing many small braids overnight ....

2.      What sort of cut does your guy have? Does he change it?

While I was growing it out I had Bob, Shoulder, Mid Back all the way to waist .... I now maintain it at BSL ...

3.      What accessories do you use? Do you get mens hair clips & barrettes or just share your own? What about headbands?

We share accessories .... i like more pastel tones of blue and green ... but will happily sport pink :)

4.      Is your guy comfortable wearing his hair up like in a high ponytail, or a bun?

Initially i wasnt but now YES - high pony for outdoor activities / work outs - french braid at work and buns and updos for occasions

5.      Do you do other styles on him, like French braids? Will he wear them in public?

yes

6.      What sort of reactions have you gotten from friends, family, co-workers, etc?

My sisters love her for making me grow hair out .... friends and others not too different reaction

7.      Does your guy wear other femme stuff? Did doing his hair lead to other feminine accessories, nail polish, makeup etc.?
We do lot of stuff together .... I have become lot more open to femme side of me .... once in a while will get my brows done ... mani/pedi whenever we visit the salon .... i donot apply nail polish but am open to it ... makeup very occasionally .... we do sometimes dress up together ..  but not for public occasions

Hope this helps .... please keep us posted on your progress and girl let me know and I can get you in touch with my wifey ... will be glad toa dvice

Omigod hairbows?? Really? Thats so cute!

 Thanks so much for your response, its really helpful. Im not sure how far we want to take this but its tons of fun to think about doing him in girly dos. Im so pleased to hear theres other gals that like styling their mans hair. I hope you dont mind if I pepper you with questions!

 

1.      So did he agree to all that, or did you have to do some convincing? Has he always had long hair or did you get him started growing it out?

2.      What kind of rollers do yall use? How often do you curl his hair?

3.      Whats a messy updo? Was he in guys clothes for the wedding?

4.      You have to tell me about the hairbows. Does he really wear them in public?

 

As for us, Im still getting TJ used to the idea of womens hairstyling. Luckily I have a super stylist and shes really encouraging him to be bold. The other day we were going out to the market and to run some errands and I put him in braided pigtails and I said Pleease and batted my eyelashes and he wore them out . & the world didnt come to an end, and he wore it that way the rest of the day. Progress!
