How do you think you would look in a "doo rag" ?

    How do you think a "doo rag" would alter your appearence ? As much as I have reflected upon asking for one from my close friends and or relations during this holiday season I have concluded after careful consideration on the matter that there was a considerably high probability that I would be unable to justifiably function to adorn this piece of head dress with the dignity it deserves.

    Pretty bad. Although I have hair touching my shoulders, so it would at least look different, which might be mistaken for being cool.

    Let's put it this way. I had to google "doo rag".

    Did you seriously consider wearing one? Haha

    And since when does a doorag deserve dignity? I thought it was just for rappers/gangsters/whatever and bikers. I'm not aware that it has any sort of significance beyond holding hair into place.

    I think I'd look like an old fart trying pathetically to recapture his lost youth . . .

    In other words, like a complete idiot. :p

    FWIW, I tried wearing a tight turtleneck shirt a while back. I thought I looked great in it. My wife and daughter couldn't stop laughing. They wouldn't tell me what was so funny but I took it off.

    The next time I encounter Madame C J Walker I'll have to ask her how she thinks my ultra fine blonde hair would look processed. Of course since I remember hair processing, Madame Walker and do rags, you probably can guess the blonde has been replaced with grey.

    Doo-rag? Not so much.

    Bandana? I can pull that off. See profile picture.

    I'll wear one when I am playing football sometimes. Maybe when I go to the gym. I don't think it enhances my appearance, but it does make me look like a tough guy. :D

    Ya, football is where I thought the doo-rag started. It's because a lot of players like shaved heads and the helmet on skin doesn't feel so good, especially when you're getting knocked around. So - the doo-rag creates a padding layer between the scalp and helmet.

    I takes either a very badass guy or a very beautiful woman to wear that without ridicule.
  14. I'd look like an idiot. Just like everyone else who wears one.

    Not everyone who wears a doo-rag looks like an idiot, but I sure would. Besides, don't have enough hair to justify it's use.
    Now a bandana; would look better on me, I think.
  16. Yeah... I probably painted my last post with a pretty broad brush, huh?

    I wear a hipassmofo hat, so I don't need no stinkin' doo rag.
