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. 

Short hair vs long hair? Which is best?

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.

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. 

alexander the great

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.

ancient greece man

In ancient Greece, long male hair was a symbol of wealth and power.

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. 

world war 1

Short hair really started to make its way into popularity around World War 1

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. 

short hair vs long hair

Short hair is synonymous with professionalism in the workplace.

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.

short hair vs long hair

Study after study shows that women prefer short hair.

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. 

 

vitaman new hair e1589834822112

 

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. 

long hair attract

There are also women who are only attracted to men with long hair. It’s their thing.

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. 

antonio wash hair

My 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. 

wash hair travis

If you’ve got longer hair, you might spend a little longer in the shower on the days you wash your hair.

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. 

wick bond

Wick vs Bond – who looks better?

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.

How to wear your watch correctly

Published

on

As much as you won’t like hearing this, you’re probably wearing your watch wrong.

It’s not your fault; you may have never been taught how to wear a watch properly. After all, there is more than one way to wear a watch.

But how do you know which way is the right way?

Don’t worry, gents; as always, I’ve got you covered. I’m here with the best way to wear your favorite timepiece properly and look as stylish as ever.

In today’s article, I’ll be covering:

  1. Origins Of The Wrist Watch
  2. What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?
  3. Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?
  4. The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

#1 Origins Of The Wrist Watch

old watches

When it comes to wearing a watch correctly, it’s important to note why the wristwatch came about in the first place.

Dating back to the 1800s, the first watches modified to be worn on the wrist were primarily worn by women as accessories. One of the earliest was created by Patek Philippe as a fashion accessory.

At the start of the 20th century, watchmakers became intrigued about using a wrist-worn timepiece for men in the military. They believed it would help them tell time quickly while on the battlefield.

Watchmakers started modifying pocket watches to fit on a bracelet worn on the wrist. Men would not wear the first iteration of the modern wristwatch until well into the 20th century.

Then developed as a ‘trench watch’ for military use, the earliest wrist watches offered something the pocket watch didn’t have – convenience.

After the wristwatch became less of a fashion accessory and more of a functional tool, watchmakers would spend the next century modifying them into the modern wristwatches we enjoy today.

#2 What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?

man wears watch

The age-old question: what wrist to wear a watch on? The answer – it depends.

The reason it depends is that since the creation of the wristwatch, men have mostly worn their watch on their non-dominant wrist. And since most people are right-handed, you would wear your watch on your left wrist.

But this isn’t always the correct answer. You may want to wear your watch on the right wrist if you are left-handed. But you may also want to wear it on your dominant hand.

So how do you know for sure?

The most significant benefit of wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is that you can quickly put the watch on and navigate the dial more efficiently than with your non-dominant hand.

Wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is less likely to damage the watch as you tend to do more with your dominant hand. If you were to wear it on your dominant hand, you’re more likely to scratch or ding the watch than on your non-dominant hand.

So the rule of thumb here is to wear your watch on your non-dominant hand for the best way to navigate and protect your watch.

#3 Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?

watch facing inside

The next question is, why would a man wear his watch facing inward on his wrist instead of outward?

This trend is seen primarily in individuals who need to check their watch frequently and in the most efficient way possible. Among the many reasons you should wear a watch, one of the most common is to support you in your profession.

You will see men in the military do this, as it’s easier and prevents sun glare better than when it’s on the outside of the wrist. It also offers faster convenience to other tools on the watch in addition to the time.

Another reason you may want to wear your watch facing inward is that it can help protect your watch from scratches and dings. Again, this is just a preference.

But you’re a stylish guy looking for the best way to wear his watch. What should you do?

The answer here is to wear it facing outward, as that is the most common way to wear a wristwatch. It shows off your timepiece that you love while also still being functional.

Unless you’re in a profession where you need to check your watch quickly while managing other tasks, the best way is to have your watch facing outward. After all, you probably didn’t spend money on that beautiful timepiece to hide its character.

#4 The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

stylish watch

Now it’s time to find out exactly how to wear a watch in the most stylish way a guy can.

Assuming you’ve selected the right size watch for your wrist, the first thing you want to do is figure out if you’ll be wearing your watch on your right or left wrist.

As mentioned above, traditionally, the watch is worn on your non-dominant wrist. So if you’re right-handed, this means wearing your watch on your left wrist. For left-handed guys, this means your right wrist.

After you figure that out, it’s quite easy. The first thing you want to do is locate your wrist bone.

You want to wear your watch face up just above your wrist bone. If done correctly, your watch should slightly peek out from under the cuffs of your shirt when wearing long sleeves.

Next, you want to tighten the strap so it’s loose enough to be comfortable. You don’t want it so loose it can spin freely around your wrist. You also don’t want it too tight, or it will feel uncomfortable, especially when you bend your wrist.

After doing this correctly, you’ll be wearing a watch in the most stylish way possible.

There you have it, gents.

Now you no longer have to worry about wearing your watch incorrectly.

There is more than one way to wear a watch, so find what’s most comfortable for you personally, and rock your favorite timepiece accordingly.

If you want to take your watch knowledge to the next level, check out this article I wrote about the difference between quartz and mechanical watches.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe Preparation (Buy Now and Get $$$)

Published

on

We’ve all been there – fall comes around, and you open your closet only to find you have nothing but polos and shorts.

So what’s a stylish guy to do? Pay a premium to build an entire fall wardrobe last minute? Sure, if you’re loaded. But not every guy is that lucky!

Don’t worry; as ever, I’ve got you covered. In today’s article, I’ll show you how to get the best bang for your buck when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

We’ll be covering:

  1. What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?
  2. How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?
  3. Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?
  4. What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

#1 What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?

man in closet

One of the most common headaches guys run into in their closet is having too many clothing options to choose from but not enough of the right options.

While more options aren’t bad, they can be overwhelming, especially when you rarely wear most items. This is where building a capsule wardrobe comes into play.

A capsule wardrobe is a limited selection of clothing items that complement each other. This means you can buy a smaller selection of items and create a larger number of outfits.

This is crucial to understand because most guys don’t have an unlimited budget for buying clothes. A capsule wardrobe allows you to purchase and use items frequently with little redundancy.

But where do you start in building your fall capsule wardrobe?

#2 How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?

fall clothing items

After you have put together the perfect capsule wardrobe, you can start to add a few fall-specific items. This is done by adding a few staple pieces that complement what you already have.

For most, fall offers mild temperatures mixed with slightly warmer temperatures.

This means that layering will be of the utmost importance because you may leave the house needing a jacket, but it might be warm enough by midday to sport only the t-shirt underneath.

Start with the basics when building your fall capsule wardrobe and add pieces accordingly.

Keep It Simple

man wearing coat

Fall is primetime for layering, so you only need a few outer layers and should focus more on the innermost layers.

You want to make sure that interchangeability is at the top of your list when it comes to your wardrobe. Everything should complement each other for ease of use.

With that said, having a few staples and adding additional items as you change seasons is essential.

For this reason, ensure you have the following items in your fall capsule wardrobe:

  • A dark three-piece suit 
  • A light-colored tweed blazer
  • A leather bomber or biker jacket
  • An overcoat (dark or light)
  • A formal button-up shirt (white)
  • 2 casual button-up shirts (flannel or chambray, you choose)
  • 2 sweaters (1 shawl, 1 crew neck)
  • 2 t-shirts (1 white, 1 black,)
  • 2 pairs of Jeans (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 pairs of slacks/chinos (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 belts (1 black, 1 brown)
  • 1 pair of black dress shoes
  • 1 pair of brown oxfords (leather or suede, you decide)
  • 1 pair of sneakers (plain white or brown)
  • 1 pair of military boots (black or brown)

When it comes to accessories like watches, scarves, or gloves, you can use what you have as most men won’t need all of them, so I won’t count them in.

#3 Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?

clothing on sale

As it is the middle of summer, fall will be approaching quickly.

Now is a great time to snag up some of last year’s sale items at department stores as they usually have sales on previous season items. By now, most men aren’t thinking about what to wear in the fall.

While you still might be able to find good deals on last year’s fall items, it’s usually the most optimal time to purchase these items after the season has ended. This is when retailers try hard to clear space and make room for the next season’s clothing.

When they do this, it is a great time to get excellent deals on items that have just gone out of season.

Another great option to buy men’s clothing is online at your favorite retailers, as they will often have sales and discounts on items they have in their online inventory but are not yet in prime season.

The most expensive items in your fall capsule wardrobe are the ones you want to focus on, as you can often save a significant amount of money out of season for them.

These big ticket items include:

  • Your dark three-piece suit and blazer
  • Overcoats and jackets
  • Dress shoes and sneakers
  • Boots

These items will be some of the most expensive items and can be found discounted out of season. Put these at the forefront of your fall capsule wardrobe search.

#4 What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

man shopping for clothes

You want to adhere to a few staples when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

Since fall weather can vary, layering will be essential. These few items are crucial as mainstays that can be layered with other items within your wardrobe.

For example, if you experience a rather chilly day in fall and need to wear a suit, an overcoat is essential as that outermost layer because you can simply remove it when you no longer need it.

When it comes to the concept of layering within your fall capsule wardrobe, you want to make sure you nail these following items.

Overcoats

man wearing overcoat

Having a good overcoat to complement your fall capsule wardrobe is crucial.

The overcoat acts as the outermost layer and will be removed whenever you go indoors. This makes for a great option as you can wear it with anything as it offers excellent versatility.

When searching for the perfect overcoat, it’s essential to know your size as they usually come in sizes of suit jackets, not regular sizing. After you’ve nailed the size, focus on color.

Dark-colored overcoats tend to be the most versatile. However, a light camel color can work as well. Stay away from patterns with overcoats as the goal is to be as versatile as possible.

Leather Jackets

leather jackets

A good leather jacket goes a long way. You can choose a leather biker jacket or a leather bomber; it’s your call.

Biker jackets can be slightly harder to pull off as most of the time, they will have a larger and more aggressive collar, but they still look great.

A leather bomber jacket is an excellent option because it looks great on all body types and often has more options than biker jackets.

For color, opt for black or dark brown, as that gives you the most versatility with other items in your fall capsule wardrobe.

Sweaters

man wearing sweater

Sweaters are to fall, what t-shirts are for summer. This means they are a critical piece as they are season specific and offer great versatility when it comes to layering.

So how do you find the perfect sweater?

You want options, so have a couple of different collar choices to give yourself the most bang for your buck.

Having a shawl neck sweater and a crew neck sweater ensures you have all your bases covered.

Make sure you choose neutral tones such as greys, creams, and tans for color. This ensures maximum versatility with other items within your wardrobe and gives you the most options.

That’s it, gents.

The Best Zara Fragrances

Published

on

We all know of Zara and I’m pretty sure the majority of us own at least one piece from them, but I’m not here to talk about their reasonably priced clothing, I’m here for their fragrance.

Not quite a hidden gem but I don’t feel that they vast range and high quality fragrance that they create is given enough air time, I’m about to change that. The fragrance game is massive at the moment, everyone from the big fashion houses all the way to footballers have a scent on the market and they all carry a hefty price tag, with some of the bigger hitters asking in excess of

£100 for 50ml.

Zara clearly understand the need for a great fragrance but also appreciate not everything has to be overly expensive. I’ve been lucky enough to sample my fair share over the years and wanted to share with you what I feel are some of their strongest.

Tobacco Collective 100ml – £16.99

This is one of my absolute favourites, it works perfectly as an everyday scent. The initial smell is strong and masculine but with undertones of vanilla bourbon help to soften it slightly.

For Him 100ml – £22.99

My current daily spray, its warm, modern and intense. It just so happens to be the perfect blend of three of my favourite scents, bergamot, cardamom and sandalwood. It’s strong yet light, never over powering and leaves a wonderful trail.

Florence 100ml – £16.24

Summer calls for a fresh fragrance and I cannot recommend this highly enough, its light, fresh and citrus scent is perfectly for those warmer days. Notes of black pepper, strawberry and guaiac wood allow this scent to sit gently on the skin with offending the noses of those around you.
