Should I cut my hair shorter? (Any female advice?)

Or should I continue to let it grow? I know I'll look good either way (accept for crazy short hair that makes me look like I ma being treated for a lice infestation).

My hair is sort of like this now.



Here are some old pics of me. (I look like crap in these...)





The one where I'ce shaved is around 2-3 years old I think.

The others were from around christmas last year I think (Or maybe not, I think the date is wrong though)...

I cut my hair short last spring/summer this year and it's gown out since then.

The Barber used this pic as a reference.



I know I look great with short, mussed up with putty, highlighted hair, but I'm just wondering if anyone has any other ideas or suggestions. My hair is thick and wavy, though some have called it curly, and dark brown.

The first and last pic of you are very nice, but the second and third pic not so much.

With long hair, you look like an unwashed IT worker. Don't let that happen again.

Agreed, the issue lies in your attractiveness. You're chasing a look that you can't obtain, you're not going to magically change your facial structure and make yourself more attractive.

Find a hair style that looks good on you...

Yup, don't do a pretty boy haircut unless you're a pretty boy.

Also, you could pluck your unibrow >_<

Man, you guys are ruthless. I say cut it short and I agree with the above poster that you need to pluck your unibrow.

I would also say that you look better without glasses and shaven. And I hope that you've updated your wardrobe since those pics were taken. If not, you need to spend a lot more time reading the style sections of this website.

Edit: And don't highlight your hair, it's not for you...

First, you need a trim and some product. Frizzy hair is no bueno. Jonathan has a product called &quot;Dirt&quot; that will prob work but there are others. Even Kiehl's Creme w Silk Groom would work.
You have that sweet, sensitive guy face so longish hair is great. Work whatcha got.
Handle that brow, not too much, just where the two become one, ya' dig?
Okay, and floss. Trust me.

If you say you look good with the shorter, styled hair, I'd go with that. I think that would look better than the long hair.

Long hair works for very few men.
