Hi All;

I discovered this while wandering around:







I think these might offer great options for guys that just need to hold their hair back but aren't comfortable with barrettes and pins. Guys need something.

I don't know if it would work on every man, but it works for the guy in the picture. I never really though about how to keep longer length of hair off of a guy. Might be a good solution!

I thought I'd try one of these things and see if it worked for me.



It worked great for keeping some of the shorter front hair out of my face. It was a little hard trying to figure out how to get the thing on but with my wife's help - success!

It's different but I don't think it's really any more feminine than my half up tail. I think I'll try it more often.

The Lord of the Rings styles. Of course most of the side things are braids on them, but this sort of has that effect. Glad it worked for you.

Hi!

You might already know this, but the guy in the photo that inspired you is David Beckham, a british soccer star known for his radical fashion sense (hey, he's married to the ex-Spice Girls-singer, Victoria/Posh Spice) and experimental hairdos. At the moment, he's shaved his head... But before, I remember him sporting barrettes, cornrows etc. etc. The comments on his 'dos were mixed, but he got away with it on account of being (one of) the best soccer players in Europe.

That band does look more 'macho' than a normal Alice band. But I was thinking of male updos after your previous post, and remembered that Japanese sumo wrestlers and samurai (like in the recent film "Last Samurai") wore their long hair in a topknot, that looks like a ponytail/braid pulled in a loop, worn on the top of the head. Or how about a square 4-strand braid (Dreamweaver's has instructions), starting from the top of your head for hair control in high humidity? And I seem to remember American Indians having long hair in different 'dos.

Good luck with the style search,
- Shiraz
