After spending the last month agonizing over what my new hairstyle was going to be, I have decided to grow my hair out for the winter. Now, before you go thinking I’m going to retire my AirCut until April and exchange it for something that looks like a deformed lion’s mane, think again. I fully intend to keep the Aircut close by to keep things from getting out of hand, but I’m hoping the length ends up somewhere beteen Jude Law and Kid Rock–long enough to style, but not a ponytail. Ponytails are never a good look for a guy unless you are one bad biker.
On the facial hair front, there is one especially good reason for guys to grow their ‘staches out this month, an awesome awareness project for guys called Movember. Basically you sign up, grow your facial hair (or shave it, if you already possess said hair) for the month of November, and explain to youtr friends that you are doing it “to raise awareness and funds for cancers that affect men”. If you really want to step up the game (what guy doesn’t?) you can sign up on their website to donate and raise money as well. See, it pays to grow out your hair sometimes.
Guys, do you change any of your normal hair rituals for the cold weather? Longer hair, different style, full beard? Let us know in the comments!
