How do you keep it out of your eyes when its long enough to hang over your eyes but not long enough to go behind an ear?

You don't. It's the price you pay for having awesome hair in 2-6 months.

I got used to somehow ending up with hair in my mouth despite it being in a ponytail.

Also, getting it caught in car doors/windows. Fun.

Yeah. I have a cowlick in the front, so it's a constant problem, even though my hair IS awesome.

Oh well. A price I'm willing to pay, still needs cut though.

That's what barrettes, bobby pins, and head-bands were invented for. (Maybe you could try a bandana?)

When my hair was eye length but not pony tail length I'd just try to move it out of the way, other wise just shove it into a pony tail when your not trying to look like a Metal Sex God.

Bandanas or styling mousse/gel/spray are probably the best bet for a guy... Or you just get used to having this weird twitch/flick where you try to get the hair out of your eyes.

I was just at this point in hair growing, got tired of it as my hair was starting to grow a lot slower, and decided to get it cut. I'm quite sad that I no longer have my flowing locks. :(

What you need to do is have regular 'trims' to stop the hair from breaking and going untidy. That way your hair's growth shouldn't slow down at all.

That would've worked if I had any regular trips home, since I don't trust anyone except one person to cut my hair. But I was stuck in college for quite some time and when I came back I pretty much just told her to chop it off, although, there still is some length to it.

I should probably get rid of my irrational fear of random people touching my hair and find someone near campus to do it.

My hair was just the right length to stab me in the eyes back in high school P.E. class.
Which made running a lot less fun.

Also, I still need to get my hair trimmed! Maybe on Saturday. How much should I ask them to cut off?

Glad to know it's normal. Mine's just gone from the incessantly-poking-me-in-the-eyes stage to the I-can't-see-anything-half-the-time stage. Damn slow-growing hair. Curse you, genetics!

heheh I can't grow my hair long, I tried for a few months but it just gets really curly, no length at all. Plus I have a widows peak. I prefer to keep it really short

I just cut my fringe really short at the front (ie when wet and combed straight down, I cut it above my eyebrows). That way, it doesn't actually have any weight to weigh it down, and it just goes straight back.

Speaking of which, its reaching my eyes again. Time to cut it again...

I've been through the poking-my-eyes phase, the tickling-my-nose phase, the getting-into-my-mouth phase but they were all worth it! I'm now at the pony-tail-swinging-into-the-way-when-I-spit-toothpaste-after-brushing-my-teeth-with-annoying-results phase. If I let my hair loose it gets in my way and I can't figure out how so many girls manage to keep their hair away from their faces with seemingly no effort :o

Oh well I'll probably start going bald in a few years and then I'll just shave it all off!

If there is a Hair and Beauty (or cosmetics or whatever your area calls it) course going on then you can probably get it cut for free since courses like that usually need "test" models.

I generally don't have much of a problem during my everyday life, but when I play any sort of sport, I wear a headband (not the scrunchy kind; the manly kind that tennis and basketball players wear.) People still crack jokes, but they're more along the lines of "Look at the hotshot with the sweatband." Apparently, sweatbands are pretentious.

It's actually the reason I grow my hair out - once a year, I cut pretty much all of it off and send it in. Many barbers are actually familiar with the program and will send it in for you; all you have to do is let them cut it off (of course, you still have to pay for the haircut.)

I miss my long hair... Was growing it for several years then I came to uni... One night I decided to grab a pair of scissors, I gathered most of my hair up into a pony tail and took that one initial snip, after which it was too late to turn back. Did my best to tidy up my mess after that but I regret that my hair is now well above my shoulders when just a few short months ago it was two thirds of the way down my back.

So I'm growing it back. The hair on the right side of my face is slightly longer than on my left, because of the botched job I did of cutting it properly, so it's just now long enough to poke me in the eyes. Seeing as to have a fringe doesn't seem to suit me, I usually just use water and a little bit of soap to slick it back, then shake it loose a bit and dry it quickly with a towel. This gives a half-assed swept back look to the hair which looks better than anything else at the moment. I would also recommend hats. They never suited me much with long hair but having had it cut, a wide variety of hats now look a lot better on my head than they used to.

I used to have long hair and you really just get used to the annoyance. I buzzed my head not too long ago and I don't plan on ever growing it back out again, it's just too much of a hassle.

It really isn't. Of course, you've got to take care of it which uses up more shampoo than short hair; when I cut my hair, I used way more shampoo than was necessary at first. So long as you keep your hair in good condition, it's no hastle at all. That is other than the extra money that will need spent on shampoo because of how much is needed to wash it properly.
The only problem I ever had with my hair was when I decided I wanted to let it dread, naturally over a period of time. This was a bad idea, as no more than a couple of weeks later I was desperately trying to get rid of knots which had developed; I know that's the point of dreads but I had no idea how much I would hate them. Eventually, the one knot which had developed at the back of my head got too frustrating and became part of the reason I took a pair of scissors to my hair.

Lets see... I have a few baseball caps, a beret, and a "top hat" I got at target to wear when I'm drumming at concerts. And a few really stupid bandannas. I don't like wearing them that much though.

It really depends on whether your hair is fine or thick. I'm blonde and have super fine hair - I can't wear it out because the hair doesn't really have enough weight on its own to keep itself tidy and together. It just tangles and goes everywhere.

I fix this by straightening my hair when I want to go out - it'll still go everywhere and be all floaty, but at least it doesn't tangle as much, so it's easier for me to do a quick flick and put it back where it should be.

I'm so jealous of people with thick hair who can seemingly do whatever they like with it without the hair misbehaving. My hair totally has a mind of its own.

There are even some places that will give you a free haircut if you're donating. There was one by my dad's house when I chopped my hair off a while back. I believe the locks of love website has a feature that lets you look up whether there are any such places in your area.

I'm not a guy, but I recently started growing my hair out again after having it in a haircut as short as a guys for a while. I'm finally at the point where I can put it in a ponytail. Until that happened, bobby pins and hair clips were my friend. I guess they don't work so great for guys though.

I used to have pretty long hair, I'll post a pic if I can find one.

My problem is my hair is ungodly thick and frizzy, so I developed a (for a lack of a better term) jewfro.
I could literally get a pound of hair cut out with an visible difference.

Some people aren't well suited for hats. Headbands seem like a popular option—you can get thinnish ones that go around from the top of the head to the back of the head or so, you see soccer players wear them a lot.

Also, about Locks of Love: only a fraction of the hair they get, they actually use to make wigs for chemo patients or whatnot. The rest of it they either throw away or sell (yes, wigmakers will buy human hair). Also, I'm sick to death about people asking me if I'm going to cut my hair for Locks of Love. No, I'm not, you jackasses, I'm wearing it.

And if I was going to cut my hair off for a charity, I would simply sell the hair myself and say I donated my hair to the Phil Welch College Fund, which is dedicated to financing the college education of disagreeable nerds (one in particular).

When I was growing out my hair, I was in middle school, so if I wore a headband or a bandanna, I'd be a fag. Kinda sucked, but I got through it through the earlier mentioned flick of the head.


Haven't had haircut (even a trim) in over 4 years. My hair is 3/4 of the way down my back.

Alice-bands, bandanas, bandana-style headbands and hats are your best options, but unless you can pull them off you'll look like a pillock. Still, a good price to pay for the awesomeness of long hair!

Earlier this year, I had my hair in my eyes, but i kind of got used to it and ignored the annoyance. Now I am at the stage where I can tuck it behind an ear, but the back gets caught whenever I try to don my backpack. such is the life of a guy who doesn't conform...

I feel you, bro.

As a guitarist, when I sling my axe over my shoulder, I have to take a few extra moments to remove my hair from the strap, lest I try to mosh on stage and render my scalp in PAIN.

Just, for the love of god, don't get your passport photo taken in the awkward growing stage.
