Failure asserts that "99 percent of guys who grow their hair out long are insecure" and that they do it because "girls [dig] it." He goes on to say, "Only a very small rockstar minority of longhaired-guys don't get pussywhipped within 2 seconds of a relationship" (personal communication, January 6, 2006). Not all of these statements are relevant to this treatise.
Failure asks, "Do some people actually thing [sic] a guy with long hair is macho?" (personal communication, January 6, 2006).
In a thorough study of this topic, James states, "From my experience id [sic] say [girls] dont [sic] like long hair" (James, 2001, para. 3), but he does uncover several examples that refute his own experience.
Erin says, "I personally find long haired guys very attractive (that's an understatement..)" (qtd. in James, 2001, para. 15).
Tarnisha adds, "Personally, long hair is high on my cuteness checklist. If its [sic] long enough to all fit in a pony tail -Sweet!" (qtd. in James, 2001, para. 28).
Tarnisha also claims that, "one of the cutest guys I know has waist long straight brown hair. I think he is personally responcible [sic] for at least 50 girls sticking with our LARP of the the [sic] last few years" (qtd. in James, 2001, para. 29). Though she does not offer information on what a "LARP" is, if long hair on a male can make 50 girls do anything, it must in some cases be a good thing, whether it is macho or not.
