Now, five corrections later, I'm happy!

Seems as though I am reaching my desired length now. Unfortunately I started from a high and tight haircut hence all the length you see comes from the top of my head. I am waiting for the sides and back to catch up but this is as far as length as I am going to go. It will take about a year for the sides to catch up and unfortunately I am currently changing careers which may mean the curls have to go. I will really push the hair, in fact, there is a chance I will go as an entrepreneur which will mean I get to choose how long my hair can be haha.

Here is the pic (from two days ago).

The corporate world is full of boring people who have to be all the same. In fact, they are proud to be all the same.

Seems to be working for my 10 inches of curls.

Thanks

What type of business are you going into?

Unfortunately I deal on a frequent basis with balding fat cats and many of them have grown in the era of "bad hair" signalling a rebellious character. I sure am rebellious but projecting this image is counterproductive when you are dealing with those who are going to pay you.

I am trying to steer my way into the more liberal industries but given the economic situation worldwide, I might have to succumb if I want to pay my bills. I am going to fight for this but not acknowledging what the market demands might render me a pariah, and then I would be portraying the stereotype of long-haired dudes.

On the other hand, if I get back into the shape I used to be in a year ago I could earn a living as a stripper so it is not all bad, as I hear muscled long curly haired men are very demanded.
Roy_Boy, here's my take (as a graduate assistant in the career services office of the college I'm getting my masters- I help with resumes, interviews, and job shadowing/internships for a "living"):

Keep your hair pulled back in a low ponytail any time you will be working with a client or going for an interview. It gives more of a professional look than having your gorgeous mane flying free or in a high ponytail.

I've been known to give a male student that is about to go to an on-campus interview (for a professional job) one of my spare hair bands just for this purpose. Then again, I'm kind of known as the "Momma GA" in the office; I'm the one that has spare hair bands, safety pins, and can sew if the need arises.

3a and 3b/F/ii


Condish: CJ Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner
Shampoo (Sulfate-free): Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat (use 1-2x/week)
Styling Product: HETT mousse

TRYING to grow it out- maybe softer water and going almost strictly CG will help!

My hair is so long now that I just cannot keep it gelled back as I used to some months ago. Moreover, even just using gel once will tangle all my hairs and it will take me an hour to undo the damage. Thus, I had made my mind that I can only go now to interviews with a ponytail.

The way I will be doing it is, as you rightly say, doing a low ponytail and then getting the banded mush of hairs going through the same hairband again which reduces the size of the bulk of hairs which are banded. In fact, if done tightly enough, all my hair is trapped and I only get a small protuberance (ball) of hair above my neck. I look like I dont have long hair from all views except when looked from a profile view.

I actually think people would appreciate this because they would be seeing a clean looking guy who has taken the effort to really tighten up his hair hence it projects a clean and effortful approach to my personal image.

It is however, hard to reason with those who cannot appreciate the effort and needed confidence of having long hair as a man. I will possibly be moving to an international and vibrant city (London) so I am less concerned about my hair than if I were to move back to my country or stay in the country I currently live in, both which have a more traditional outlook on men's image.
