I really agree about the generation thing Bobby my guy's dad, uncles etc hate his curls. They tell him every time we see them to cut his hair short enough that it doesn't curl and make sure to comb it because curls are not professional on men and he will never get promoted unless he "does something" about his hair. Everyone my age (friends/coworkers) always comment on how nice his hair is. Even my grandmother said something along the line of "he has such beautiful curls, what a shame to waste them on a boy" her own son has curly hair, but she would comb his for childhood pictures and curl my aunts hair for hers. It's such a shame because I find curly hair on men so attractive, especially when they know how to care for it.
