    I have ridiculously long hair (past my nipples), and I want something short. I really have no idea what to ask for when I go to the barber tomorrow. Any ideas? I can post a picture if that would help.

    Nothing shorter than chin length preferably, it should definitely cover you ear lobes.

    Take the plunge.



    2 on the sides and back, shorten up the top.


    or go with the buzz cut. tons of guys sport the buzz cut simply because they love the convenience of not having to do anything to their hair when they wake up on the morning.

    I'm kind of weary of a buzz or crew cut. I've had long hair since junior high and I'm now a college sophomore. I'm really just afraid of what I'd look like with short hair. I like Evo's advice, but I'm just not sure what to tell the barber.

    Go with the buzz cut. If you don't like it, no worries -- it'll grow. When it gets to a length you like, start getting it trimmed every month or so.

    You only live once - a buzz cut is nothing to be afraid of!

    You'd be surprised... Out of everyone I've ever known with long hair who got a short haircut, only one of them ended up looking worse. So it can happen, but not usually. Hair grows back. If you post a picture I think PF would be able to help you better.

    NOOOOOO not a buzz cut, they're ugly. Go with my suggestion, then if you still want shorter, you can go shorter, you can't glue hair back on your head to cover a buzz cut.

    The problem with growing out a really short cut, like a buzz cut, is that you will suffer months of dorky looking hair at odd lengths until it gets long enough all over to get a decent cut.

    Go for chin or ear length first, I think that would frame your face nicely. You can always go shorter in stages if you want.

    Buzz cuts are SEXY!!!!

    If you're not sure what to ask for and just know you want it shorter, tell the barber that. Maybe he can recommend a cut that will work for you.

    Edit: By the way, remember that Evo likes the super-geeky guys. If you don't want to look super-geeky, don't take her advice on haircuts. :biggrin:

    I'm going to have to agree with Moonbear on this one:biggrin:. The shorter the better! I tend to think that guys with long hair, look kinda dirty, since most of them really don't know how to keep it nice and trimmed, so shorter is better. I defantly think so anyhow :biggrin:

    pick one or the other, go short or keep it long, dont go in between. I hate the in between look. You can have really short hair without buzzing it.

    Exactly. From the photo posted, even though his hair is probably clean, it looks greasy, because it just hangs there straight and limp. It's just the type of hair he has, but he's a cute guy who would look great if he just got his hair cut nice and short. It's not the type of hair that looks good long. And, I also agree with fileen...don't do something in between. That just leaves you immediately looking like you're in need of a haircut. So, just cut it short.

    :yuck: Those photos look completely dorky! Admit it, you know you like the geeky, dorky types, so you go for guys with hair that makes them look geeky. Most people don't really want to look geeky on purpose.
