hi,

 

i see everyones pictures and everyone has short hair. why doesnt anyone grow their hair long as a pony tail to spread more donor hair out on top of the head and the long hairs will hide low density on the scalp?

 

this way you could have a low hair line and will give the appearance of a full look rather than having high density with a bigger forehead.

Same reason many no longer listen to the Village People. They had there day and that hairstyle had its day. Ofcourse in certain cirles it is still a cool look, but my hockey buddies might beat the tar out of me. icon_smile.gif

lol I've got long hair, and it still works nicely for strip clubs, and in my sport of BJJ and MMA. Although to be honest, it's kind of a pain in the ass when grappling. I've gotten chunks of it ripped out before. Think it mainly just depends on how you wear it long, if it looks any good, and your personal style, etc. In my case, because I'm not really, really bald, it does in fact help to hide the thinning, and I plan on having a second surgery here soon, so as it won't be an issue. I definitely don't want to be "that guy" who's bald but still has a ponytail of the sides and back. That's just not a real flattering look for anyone.

LOL NN!

 

There was a time when I had long hair pulled back in a pony tail with the sides and back of my head shaved. Yeah...that's right. I should try to find some pictures, scan them, and post them for you all to laugh at! I'll tell you though...women LOVED my hair. It wasn't too long, but long enough, thick, golden and shiny!

 

With my hair restored, I could probably pull it off again (though a bit thinner) but it's simply not the style.

 

Chris...it is possible though...you can always mask thin areas by growing hair a little longer. Be careful as to not create the "comb over" effect. It's typically obvious and doesn't look good!

I'll pay 300 dollards Bill to see that haha

 

Well, general rule is the less hair you have the shorter you should wear it .

Jobi,

 

icon_biggrin.gif. I'll await the check in the mail icon_wink.gif. I'll try to gather some pictures in the next couple weeks or so and post them!

 

I agree....thinner hair should be worn shorter for the most part. That's why after my second HT, I wore it at about a 6 clip on top. Now I grow it a few inches on top and have a lot more flexibility!
