I've been growing my hair for about 18 months now, maybe a bit longer. I think it looks pretty good. My hairdresser told me that not a lot of guys can pull off long hair, but i have the right features to pull it off. I trust his judgement. Anyway, my hairline has also been increasingly receding over the past couple of years, so when i tie my hair back my forehead becomes rather large. Again, not a big issue, it still looks fine. The only problem is that during summer, and especially during the end months of summer when it becomes extremely humid, my head looks like a fresh polished bowling ball. I swear it's like my entire body is completely dry except for my forehead which is covered in a thin layer of sweat, giving it the most obnoxious shine ever. Started carrying a handkerchief with me at all times just to keep my head dry and not a reflective surface. I feel like an old man.
