Long Hair vs Short Hair Round 1 – Individuality
Short Hair Argument
Short hair on men has been a symbol of masculinity in the west for hundreds of years.
Where short hair really shines for individuality is when you cut it to become a part of your style and personality.
Grooming is an extension of your image. So whether you go for an undercut, or a combover, or a pompadour, or a quiff, this is when short hair starts to shine.
You have so many more options to change it up with short hair. You can cut your hair to match your face shape, whereas with long hair if it doesn’t suit you, it just doesn’t suit you.
Short hair gives more options and a much wider variety to choose from. This wide array of options allows each guy to embrace who they are and make their hair a part of their unique style.
Many more options for products to be able to style it. Most products out there can work medium to shorter hair and you can style it in a lot of ways.
Long Hair Argument
I agree with that but I would argue that short hair on men, while it may not be like that today, it started as conformity. Every culture that conquered another culture would force them to cut their hair as a sign of submission.
And to some degree, it’s still like that today, short hair for men is required in many places. In most workplaces, in schools, young men must have their hair short.
Additionally, short hair started to become the norm during World War One.
Men were required to have military cuts for functional reasons. Whether it was to prevent lice and fleas while spending days in the trenches or shaving it so their enemies couldn’t use their hair as a weapon against them.
Short hair became the main symbol of masculinity after the war with military men influencing grooming similar to how they do with style.
So short hair, as most men’s fashion happens as well, became a symbol of men’s style & masculinity from the military in the west.
So because of that, in my opinion, growing your hair out is the ultimate form of individuality. Because Individuality comes down to going against the grain and rocking it with confidence.
In western culture, long hair has always been considered going against the grain.
This is most apparent when you look at the 60s era with counterculture movement and continued into the 70s and 80s with rock n roll.
Also, given that MOST men in the world have short hair, the ultimate way to show your individuality IS through long hair. It’s saying that you don’t want to conform to what culture demands of you.

WINNER: Long Hair
Long Hair vs Short Hair Round 2 – Historical Significance
Short Hair Argument
For a time, long hair was incredibly popular. Many warriors and tribes around the world would wear long hair. But it wasn’t long before they realized it was a disadvantage.
Nearly all the long-haired warriors of the past died off or were conquered and forced to cut their hair.
Vikings, Spartans, Mongols, etc.
As civilization and technology advanced, and the population in one area became denser, short hair became preferred as long hair was harder to keep clean and prevent spreading of fleas and lice. It also became functionally safer.
During the industrial revolution men would operate machinery or work dangerous jobs or go off to war, short hair was much more functional and could be the difference between life and death.
Alexander the Great was a leader who required his warriors to have short hair because it gave them advantages on the battlefield.
Also, the two biggest reasons that men cut their hair shorter in history?
War & baldness. Over 50% of men lose their hair as they age. So making short hair a part of the culture was a way to flip the script of how long hair used to be perceived as nobility and short hair as slavery.
Over time short hair started to become the symbol of masculinity as that perception shifted. ol
Long Hair Argument
If you look at cultures all over the world. Hair has meant many things to many different groups of people.
Seeing Long hair as feminine or unprofessional IS a western and I would argue newly western idea dating back to around World War I.
We can start with ancient Greece, long male hair was a symbol of wealth and power, and a shaved head was a symbol of slavery.
This is also what the Vikings believed as well by the way. Vikings took their hair and beards VERY seriously.
If fact, it was believed that the Vikings used to groom their hair with tools made from deer and elk antlers and they would seduce Saxon noblewomen quite often because they were so well-groomed & bathed.
They believed short hair meant you were a thrall or a slave.
In Greek and Roman mythology you will see gods like Zeus, Achilles, and Apollo all portrayed with long hair and beards.
In Norse Mythology you have Odin and Thor portrayed with long hair.
Spartan warriors saw long hair as a symbol of strength and they would grow it out when they came of age.
If you look at many religious stories, like the story of Samson, you will see that he derived strength from his hair.
Historically, long hair on men symbolized strength.
Then you look at many African tribes, depending on which tribe, as they’re all different, they would decorate their hair in braids or cornrows, and some tribes would only allow their warriors to wear dreadlocks.
You can look at the Native American tribes, many of which believed long hair was a symbol of honor and strength, and if they were forced to cut their hair it’s a sign of submission.
Mongolian warriors would have long hair shaved in unique ways to instil fear in their enemies.
Most of the time when people were forced to cut their hair it was probably because of an invading force or culture.
But some of the fiercest warriors of all time wore their hair long.
Short hair really started to make its way into popularity around World War 1.
Soldiers were required to have short hair for trench warfare because long hair exposed them to fleas and lice infestations, and long hair could’ve been used as a weapon against them.

Long Hair vs Short Hair Round 3 – Professionalism
Short Hair Argument
This one is a no-brainer. Short hair is synonymous with professionalism in the workplace.
If you’re in sales or working at a law firm, or in finance and you walk into an interview with long hair, they’ll kick you out of the room.
If you’re trying to get a deal done and you walk in with a man bun your first impression is ruined.
It’s just the reality that if you want to do business, be respected instantly, or get someone to trust you, short hair is the best way to do that.
Long Hair Argument
I think that there are obviously jobs that still exist that have a dress code and short men’s hair might be on that dress code.
There may be a danger issue as well if you work on an oil rig, or with heavy machinery, long hair could become a safety hazard.
But if you work in tech, or in arts, you’re a photographer or videographer, or you work at a software start-up company, most of these company cultures are becoming more and more accepting of long hair on men.
And it can actually look very professional if you keep it neat, you keep it well-nourished, and you wear it in a way that is well-kept, I don’t see why long hair would be a problem.
But it does come down to the specific company.
Obviously working at a law firm, or in finance, or if you’re getting on an airplane and you see that your pilot has a man bun, how would that make you feel? To me, I wouldn’t care.
But I know to a lot of people, because of how our culture views long hair on men, they might respond negatively to that.
I think we are making progress on the long hair professionalism front, but there’s still a long way to go.
Being remembered for long hair
WINNER: Short Hair
Long Hair vs Short Hair Round 4 – Attraction
Short Hair Argument
Study after study shows that women prefer short hair.
A study out of 1978 in Sage Journals 43 males and 45 females were presented with one of four drawings, representing a man who had either long or short hair (hair-length) and was either bearded or clean-shaven (beardedness).
Subjects were asked to form an impression of the person represented and to indicate the impression formed by placing checkmarks between a number of bipolar scales.
Results indicated a markedly negative impression. was formed of the long- as compared to the short-haired male. Consistent with prior research, the bearded male was regarded more positively than the clean-shaven male.
Results were discussed in terms of the stereotypical view associated with long hair.
So it would seem that both men and women see long hair on men in a more negative light.
Women don’t want you to have nicer hair than them.
They don’t want you to take longer getting ready for dates. Being a high maintenance man isn’t attractive to a woman.
They want you to admire them, they want you to feel proud of being with them and see other people jealous of you when they admire her.
She should be the spotlight of beauty, not the guy.
And many surveys and studies have shown that to be the case. Women are more attracted to men with short hair.
Long Hair Argument
That’s a great point.
First of all, I would argue that that study was conducted during the height of the hippie movement and that most people alive then saw long hair on men as unattractive. Even a guy in a suit with long hair back then was just a closeted hippie.
No offense to any hippies out there.
They were just not seen as the most masculine of men back then.
But, I bet if that study were to be conducted today, the results would be totally different.
Today a guy with long hair and a suit is a big question mark. And question marks are attractive.
Even I believe that the majority of women will tell you that they find short hair more attractive on men, in general.
However, if they were to see a man with long hair and it’s clean, well kept, it’s not dirty or greasy, I believe she would find the confidence very attractive because that alone will separate him from 95% of the other men.
There are also women who are only attracted to men with long hair. It’s their thing.
It’s like a guy with a body full of tattoos.
Not every woman likes that, but the ones who do absolutely LOVE it.
So not every woman will prefer your long hair, but the ones who do will have a much stronger reaction to it.
One thing I would add is that long hair kind of has this amplification effect.
Meaning if you’re out of shape, not dressed well, poor presentation and grooming, long hair tends to make you look a bit more of that. Lazier, more unkempt.
But if you’re fit, have great style, have well-groomed facial hair, now long hair makes all of that look even stronger and amplifies all of those qualities.
So I think it can amplify your best attributes.
I think the best thing a guy with long hair can do is dress up a bit.
Because it makes you more mysterious.
If you’re walking around in a t-shirt and jeans, a female might assume you’re just a wannabe rock n roll star, but if you’re wearing a fitted button-down, chinos, and nice shoes, all of the sudden it’s like what does this guy do?
He obviously doesn’t work in the conventional 9 to 5 cubicle environment, I want to get to know him better.
So my conclusion is, women are attracted to confidence and long-haired men who take good care of their hair definitely have an element of confidence and mysteriousness to be able to pull it off.
So if you can grow your hair out I think you should try it at least once in your life.
It’s also a sign of commitment and patience, two virtues that are very attractive to high-quality women.
But, the most important thing, be who you are! Because confidence is the ultimate attraction.
Long Hair vs Short Hair Round 5 – Upkeep & Care
Short Hair Argument
I gotta tell you when it comes to short hair, I just get up style it a bit with my fingers, maybe put one product in and I’m good to go.
My men’s hair care routine in the morning is incredibly short.
Worst case, use a bar of soap if you’re in a rush and don’t have shampoo.
With long hair you have to brush it, you have to spend a much longer time washing it, conditioning it. You can run into more frizz, dryness, greasiness, split ends. You might as well watch the women’s beauty channels if you’re going to take care of your hair properly.
Long Hair Argument
That’s actually a great and funnily enough, I’ve learned a ton of great tips from women’s hair channels. They really do know their hair care.
But sure, you might have a couple more men’s hair styling products. You might spend a little longer in the shower on the days you wash your hair.
Maybe you spend a little bit on a decent brush, good hair oil, or upgrade your 2-in-1 shampoo & conditioner to something more suited for your hair type, but think of how much money you’ll save not having to go to the barber every 3 weeks.
Especially if you like a tight fade, then you go for a clean up every 2 weeks.
With long hair, while you may need to brush it and make sure it’s nourished, but you only need to go to the barber for a clean up every 4-6 months. And even then you’re just trimming the split ends. I’d argue you actually save money in the long run.
Another point is that when men have shorter hair they tend to wash their hair more often, especially if they sweat daily.
This is actually not healthy for your hair as the surfactants in most drug store shampoos are really harsh on your hair.
You start to learn how to better take care of your hair and you realize you don’t have to wash your hair every day, even if you sweat.
Long Hair vs Short Hair Round 6 – In The Movies
Short Hair Argument
James Bond, Superman, Captain America, Peaky Blinders, Any military movie.
Some of the most masculine men in movies have short cuts.
Whether it’s a texturized quiff, a military buzz cut, or an undercut like in Peaky Blinders, most of the heroes, spies, or bosses all have short hair.
Long Hair Argument
I could say the exact same thing about long hair. Thor, Aquaman, Rambo, Conan The Barbarian, Achilles, Jon Snow, Jack Sparrow, Legolas, John Wick, Geralt Of Rivia, Tarzan, Hercules. Any movie about Rock N Roll.
I mean I could go on all day naming badass dudes who rock long hair in TV and Movies. I even made a video listing the top 30.
Long Hair vs Short Hair Round 7 – Which One Looks Best?

Harvey Specter Style
There’s a lot to envy about Harvey Specter.
The outrageous confidence, the power, the prestige…
The sharp comebacks… and the ultra-sharp suits.
Harvey dresses like he does everything else – strategically.
“People respond to how we’re dressed…
So like it or not, this is what you have to do.”
Everyone’s appearance sends a message – and everything about his says loud and clear:
“I’m not about caring, I’m about winning.”
Of course, he does care – he cares about Mike, he cares about Donna, and he cares about his personal code of ethics. But that’s not the message he chooses to send. There’s nothing soft about his look.
”If they think you care, they’ll walk all over you.”
Read on to find out how to get the sharp and powerful Harvey Specter look.
Okay, let’s break this down. What are the main elements of Harvey Specter’s style strategy? Number 1, of course, has to be…
1. The Suit
Harvey is virtually ALWAYS seen in an expensive suit. Gabriel Macht, who plays him, says: ‘He’s a man of style… we really wanted him to be this man’s man. A real masculine, strong, Steve McQueen-type of guy who could pull off a three piece suit and make it a modern thing, wide lapels and all.’
How does Harvey pull off his suits? Using two things you can learn right here at RMRS – confidence and the style pyramid of fit, fabric, and function. The fit of his suits is always on point, which takes extra effort for men with a tall body type (Gabriel Macht is 6’0.5?/183cm.) The fabrics are top quality – early season suits were mostly dark high twisted worsted wool, but recently he’s wearing silk-wool blends that add an unusual shine.
And as for function (appropriateness for the situation)? As a workaholic hotshot lawyer, Harvey lives for high-powered formal situations where a suit is required. He doesn’t suit up when it’s outright inappropriate… which means we see him in something else a good 2% of the time.
Harvey has a medium contrast complexion and dresses well for it, most often pairing gray, charcoal, and occasionally navy or black suits with white shirts. Gray and white form a sleek, classic combination that shows he means serious business.
Where a man with just one or two suits might stick to solid colors and maybe a pinstripe, Harvey has a wardrobe of different suit patterns including sharkskin, Prince of Wales checks and stripes – he prefers the bolder rope stripes to pinstripes (pinstripes are just one thread wide, rope stripes are several.)
He wears a slim fit with high armholes and strong structured shoulders – highlighting his athletic physique. Wide peak lapels give him a powerful broad-shouldered ‘v’ shape – the key to wearing them like he does is to get the gorge of the lapel not too high and not too low. If it peaks out over your shoulders, it is too much, and if it is too low it looks too old school.
Peak lapels are more formal – he sets himself apart by wearing them (except sometimes when he’s in a three-piece suit, which is more formal anyway). Because they’re more common on a tuxedo, on a business suit they suggest authority and/or arrogance.
Taking a deeper dive into suit jacket details, the big flap pockets on his jackets are a little unusual with peak lapels; jetted pockets are more normal.
You might expect to see a three-button suit on him because he’s a ‘buttoned up’ character and it would suit his tall athletic build. However, Harvey knows TWO buttons are the best choice for a single-breasted suit with peak lapels. It’s a classic elegant look that’s been around since the 1920s – two buttons leave room for longer lapels and accentuate them more.
His jacket cuffs, on the other hand, are as formal and buttoned-up as they get, with four buttons on each. The more buttons on the cuffs, the more formal the jacket, with single buttons denoting a sports jacket.
Pants are slim but not tight, with an ironed crease down the front, no pleats, no break and usually no cuffs. This suits his strict character – very neat and no fuss.
2. The Shirts
Harvey mostly wears plain white dress shirts – again, the most formal color. He also favors pale blue, and occasionally a gingham or stripe. The tall semi-spread collars accentuate his ‘v’ shape.
His shirts are very well fitted and always let a sliver of cuff show outside his jacket. He usually prefers simple classic button cuffs, but occasionally goes for the fancier French cuffs and cufflinks.
3. The Accessories
“Get your skinny tie out of my face and get to work.”
Harvey’s ties are always silk – navy grenadine is a favorite. Dark purple and black are other favorite colors. His look is VERY monochrome – it’s part of the character.
His ties vary between 3 and 3.5 inches wide, a classic width. He doesn’t wear anything too young and trendy. His wider ties and lapels contrast with Mike’s skinny ones and make him look more powerful.
He favors the full Windsor tie knot – a powerful, formal, ‘serious business’ knot that marks him out as a guy who knows how to dress and looks great with his wide lapels and semi-spread collars.
He’s rarely seen without a dimple in his ties, showing he knows how to dress and pays attention to the details. The one time his tie dimple is off center, Donna notices something is wrong!
With a tux he wears a diamond-pointed bow tie instead of the normal shape. That’s quirkier than you’d expect from him, but it’s like the peak lapels – sharp and pointed – which suits his aggressive and incisive mind.
He always wears a pocket square in a square Presidential fold, usually white or gray. A white pocket square in a square fold is as formal as they come and suits his businesslike, no-nonsense image. You won’t see him with a flower in his lapel – this is a hard and sharp look, nothing soft or romantic on this determinedly unemotional guy. To finish the look, he chooses simple and bold metal cufflinks.
Earlier in the series, Harvey was seen wearing a bold statement chronograph watch with a leather strap – a status symbol meant to mark him out as a successful man. The watch has since disappeared because of the technical constraints of filming for TV. Gabriel Macht says:
‘As great as the show is, it really doesn’t lend itself to detail. Other than some necklaces you might see Jessica wear, you don’t see any jewelry.’
#4. The Shoes
Because of the nature of TV, you don’t often see Harvey’s shoes, and they’re not a big focus of his costume. He’s been seen in black cap-toed derbies, and black or brown oxford brogues – all classic smart dress shoes, although brown full brogues are a bit more casual than you’d expect from him.
5. Casual Clothing
Aside from the suit, he’s been seen in a classic black button-down shirt; well-fitting jeans; a white or heathered grey henley; beige chinos; and a navy v-neck and coat over a white shirt. (Not a casual shirt, by the way, just a dress shirt like he’d wear to the office – showing his wardrobe, like his life, is mostly work.)
6. The Hair
In 2011 Gabriel Macht said of Harvey’s original slicked-back do, “It’s supposed to be the modern version of the old-style man’s haircut, sort of like Gregory Peck or Cary Grant.”
But as more sides of the character have emerged his hair has evolved- now it’s more vertical, but still strict and structured, featuring a tight side-part (on the left side) with a subtle pompadour in the front.
To get this look, you need the sides cut short (not buzzed) and some length on top.
Run a strong hold gel (or pomade for less shine) through towel dried hair then blow dry on a low heat while combing the front upwards. The longer you blow-dry the front, the more volume you’ll get.
Then apply more gel and use your comb to cut the side-part and sculpt the front hair up and back. Fix with a little hairspray.
If you prefer his earlier slicked-back style, you want a similar cut with squared-off sideburns and a square neckline and shaved part. Again, apply some gel to your hair before blow-drying, then comb it back with pomade and set with hairspray.
I don’t recommend that every man dresses exactly like Harvey Specter. It’s a very stark monochromatic look, and for guys with more fun and warmth in their personalities, it might not suit you. You can emulate his confidence without exactly copying his look.
What I DO recommend is that you copy Harvey Specter in dressing strategically. Think about what YOUR message is, and make sure every stitch on your body and every hair on your head communicates it.
‘Get it through your head – first impressions last.’

ONE Cologne Men Should Buy? Jeremy Fragrance Recommendations
If you’re a stylish man…
Could you own a single
- Dress shirt?
- Pair of shoes?
There’s no clothing item that’s good for ALL situations (color, pattern & formality come into play).
It’s different for colognes – or fragrances.
How many colognes does a man really need?
The answer? One.
One cologne can rule them all…just ask Jeremy Fragrance.
Here’s what he has to say about buying the perfect men’s fragrance.
Why Use A Men’s Fragrance?
Style isn’t just about clothing. True style encompasses everything about yourself that you show others: your confidence, your communication skills, and your smell.
Your scent is an invisible component of your personal style. It can influence how people – from strangers in the subway to colleagues at work – perceive you.
That’s where fragrances come in. Fragrance is the generic term for grooming sprays that improve one’s own scent. The majority of fragrances are perfumes.
Certain perfumes have a lighter, more masculine smell and are better suited for men. They’re commonly known as colognes (especially in North America). In the end though…they’re all types of fragrances.
But what’s shocking is the fact that 80% of males don’t regularly use a men’s fragrance. If you’re one of them, chances are your reason might be:
- You’re not familiar with the basics and terminology of fragrances
- You don’t know which product to buy (or where to start)
- You’re afraid of doing it wrong or smelling bad
- Fragrances are “unmanly” or only for women
Those reasons share a common ground – ignorance. So there’s only one solution to this kind of problem, and that’s getting information. You want good solid info on fragrances as well as how to choose the right fragrance for you. Great knowledge means great power.
Now I know this will take time. You can read up, watch a few videos, learn the opinions of experts. But you won’t immediately feel like making your own choice. You may not want to pay lots of money for a risky product…or products.
Maybe you’d rather play it safe and find a “universal” men’s fragrance. Why not? We all have busy lives. We spend enough energy deciding which suit, tie or dress shoes to wear every morning. Is it okay to stick with just one fragrance?
Actually – yes! Take the advice of my friend Jeremy who runs the Jeremy Fragrance YouTube channel. Jeremy is a scent connoisseur with the ultimate passion for fragrances. He’s the first guy who’d tell you that men can use fragrance to come off stronger and more confident wherever they go, whoever they’re with.
Below are Jeremy’s nominations for the one fragrance you’ll need…
Jeremy Fragrance: Category #1 – All-Around Fragrance
Remember what fragrances are at their core…a group of chemicals.
You spray them at a distance of 3-6 inches from the skin. You let the fragrance strike the warm parts of your body (neck, shoulders, chest, forearms, inner elbows, etc.) so as to mix with your body chemistry.
But if a product isn’t versatile enough – you can’t count on it alone. It needs to survive in both extreme heat and cold…or else the aromatic chemicals may evaporate or lose their strength over time.
So when it comes to an all-around fragrance, you need a jack of all trades. It can pass as a date fragrance or fragrance for formal occasions. But it’s not top-notch in any particular area. That being said…it probably won’t matter as long as you smell awesome!
Jeremy Fragrance’s Recommendation: Sauvage Cologne for Men (Christian Dior)
This cologne has distinct notes of Calabrian bergamot and pepper. The scent isn’t too imposing and gives off the vibe of breezy, open fields. Johnny Depp has appeared in ads for this fragrance.
Jeremy Fragrance: Category #2 – Best Fragrance For Work
Most of us are pretty career-driven. We go to work each day with big goals and aspirations at the back of our minds. I’ll be CEO someday. I’ll be making six figures. I’ll be successful in this field.
That’s a good mindset. But doing the same menial tasks, not being challenged, earning points from the higher-ups…it can feel un-stimulating for now. It can cause you to lose focus. Or lose sight of the prize.
So what can you do to stay alert and excited while spending hours at the office? You’d be surprised. Certain fragrances can actually heighten your alertness during tasks that require a lot of concentration.
Those scents can also reduce levels of fatigue or anxiety. They let time pass more quickly for you as you’re no longer thinking about the time. You just do what’s required of you productively…thanks to an external stimulus.
Jeremy Fragrance’s Recommendation: Prada L’Homme for Men (Prada)
This is the fragrance to wear to the office during daytime hours. It’s a combination of iris and amber (classic Prada ingredients) which is similar to the smell of fresh fabric softeners. You can say it’s more “professional” since it’s not citrusy-sharp but an airy, powdery, and elegant scent.
Jeremy Fragrance: Category #3 – Best Fragrance For Dating
A man sees but a woman smells. That’s right. Studies in Europe prove that a man’s scent is the #1 factor for the ladies in a potential partner.
It does make sense. Women are known to have more complex senses of smell (whereas men tend to only categorize smells as either “good” or “bad”).
That can explain why women enjoy getting flowers for gifts. Or why they might have a variety of perfumes in their homes. In fact, a scent can do wonders for a woman’s mood when you interact with her.
One experiment reveals that women would more likely give their number to a guy they met in a pleasant-smelling area – compared to a not-so-pleasant area. So imagine how much more impact a man’s body smell has! You’ll want to take advantage.
Jeremy Fragrance’s Recommendations:
Versace Eros Cologne for Men (Versace)
This cologne is tailor-made for seduction and grabbing attention. It invigorates the ladies’ senses with a fusion of mint oil, Italian lemon, green apple, and geranium flowers. Put it on to give yourself maximum confidence when you approach women at bars or public places.
Spicebomb Extreme Cologne for Men (Viktor & Rolf)
You can call it a “big fat mass of sweetness” because that’s what it is – consisting of vanilla, lavender, tobacco, and caraway. It’s not as aggressive as the Versace Eros, but it draws women to you in more intimate settings. Picture yourself cuddling your partner by the fireplace inside a snow-covered wooden house. The Spicebomb will add to that romance.

But with so many brands making men’s fragrances these days, how can you be sure you’re getting one that’s right for you? The simple answer – you have to try them out.
Where should you start though? Discovering new scents, a great place to look is at the most popular ones. Lucky for you, I’ve taken that guesswork out of it.
Here are 30 of the most popular men’s fragrance brands in no particular order.
