I'm 47. 6'2" and slender(ish). I am a technician presently. Not a lot of chances for advancement. And, quite honestly, I am at a financial point in my life where clawing up the ladder isn't really my thing anymore anyway. There are no restrictions on hair length at my workplace. I have a wife and two young daughters. My hair is still jet black. You can find a few greys if you are up in my personal space. I can not wear a hat at work. I don't even know if any of that matters, but I figured I would answer some obvious questions. I'm just wanting a different look. These days my hair is somewhat "spiked" most of the time. But I have let it grow for a couple months and it's too long to spike anymore. I'm at a hair crossroads. I cut my own hair. It takes about 15 minutes. 1/2" up the back. Fade to 3/4" on the sides. 1" on top. And a little extra in the front. I could cut it tonight easy. Or I can keep going. For those of you in my age group who have long hair, are there any disadvantages these days? The last time I had long hair was 1993. People seem more tolerant of pretty much anything these days. But do you ever think "It's just not worth it" and get tempted to cut yours? If so, why? That "in between" stage is annoying as crap. Long hair is easy. Tie it up or run a brush through it. Done. Short, spikey hair is easy. Wet hands, a tiny dab of hair gel. Mess it up. Roll out. But in between is a pain, and usually looks awful. It would be a commitment. What say you?
