: Hey, Gang! Thought I'd post a couple of recent pictures. Been growing about four years, but not without trims along the way. I'm pretty happy with the results so far.
: I don't seem to get any guff about my hair, and if anybody thinks I look 'like a girl' they seem to keep it to themselves. But I'm going on 60 years old now, so probably the age gap that LHIA refers to is in effect.
: In June I moved from Gold Coast, Australia to Colorado Springs, USA. I don't notice any difference in the way I'm received by others in the two places, although CS has a reputation as being a conservative place. BTW, as I'm retired military i am frequently on the area military bases for various reasons and no discernable reactions there unless it's behind my back.
: I'm retired and not seeking work at this time, so employer/potential employer reaction is not a factor.
: My hair is now mid-back length. I'm maintaining this length until I decide to grow it further. Monthly trims, besides maintaining the length, seem to keep the ends looking nice. It's not always as curly as in the pictures, just after a washing. I like it curly but am unwilling to use a curling iron or some such to keep it that way all the time.
: Hope all are well. For the Jews on the board, shana tova and a good inscription for the next year!
Hair looks good Don.
I'm 57 and I can say issues with long hair on guys is is not like the old days. I was a long hair for 47 years now !! People are more tolerant/acceptable today. But --- you can still find closed minded idiots out there.
