Hair: How to mess it up

One year ago, I essentially shaved my head for an easy get-up-and-go styling that allowed me the luxury of not having to spend time on my hair each morning.

Then I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and decided I was going to be Mr. Darcy for Halloween which required me to grow out my hair. Afterwords, I decided I won't have many more opportunities to grow out my hair long again (all the males in my family are bald) so I kept growing it and growing. Now my hair is long enough to go below my ears, easily the longest length ever, and I have no idea how to style it. But like everything else on this blog, I am learning and need to show a progression! I'm trying to go for the "messy hair surfer" look which is all the rage now. And to do that I enlisted the help of some actual surfers (and possible hairdressers).

The friz:

They spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out the best look, and in the end my hair was indeed "messed up".

I like the look from the side but am still not sold on the front. But I've been told I just need to give it time to grow out so I can more with the front. Until then, I'm wearing all hats!


  1. I don't like the long hair - the first picture is a much better look for you....just a personal opinion, but I HATE long hair on guys to begin with.

  2. Yeah you hippie! Get a hair cut already! :)
