ITT: Long Hair inspiration, progress, advice, and ideas
What is being done in this pic?
There's a comb and some kind of tong-scissors, but in the next scene the hair is the same length.
how long is it would it take for me to this longs?
top = 2-4 inch
side= 1 inches
As a fag with black hair this fucker is my inspo, but how do I achieve?
I have longer wavy hair
1.) Air dry when possible, low setting on hair dryer when not. Seriously avoid heat styling tools.
2.) You might be over washing your hair. Don't wash with shampoo every day, every other day at most. If you have soft water, see about using a shampoo bar instead of regular shampoo.
3.) Conditioner. Make sure you're using a good conditioner. If you must shower every day, make sure you condition every day. Make sure you're using decent products in general. Speaking of products......
4.) How hard is your water? If you have exceptionally hard water, you might run into issues. Talk to your stylist about products you can use if you happen to have really hard water.
5.) Make sure you comb your hair with a really wide toothed comb.
6.) Avoid humid weather and high winds. Easier said than done lol, but just accept that some days you're gonna have frizzy hair.
Hard water is water that has a higher mineral count than normal. If you taste your tap water, and it tastes "bad, metallic, or rusty, you probably have hard water. It can be a problem since it can cause a buildup on your scalp and can cause a film to form over your hair that can make it dull, tangly, frizzy, and dry.
Water hardness refers to the calcium and magnesium content of your water.
It's less black and white as "hard and soft water" and neither is inherently worse for every task and idk about hair care.
If anyone can tell me what style this hair I will be eternally grateful I don't know if this is the right place to post it tho.
10 weeks no poo, awkward stage. Tips?
step 1: go to a dermatologist, start an acne treatment... i had the same acne as you and after 3 months of creams i've made HUGE improvements
step 2: shave ALL your facial hair until your skin improves. After, you can try growing a stubble or something like that.
step 3: workout, thin out that facial fat.
After you've done these three steps start worrying about your hair. Having great hair is pointless if the rest of the package isn't as appealing.
Never said anything about your personal hygiene, but 3 showers a day is way too much mate.
1 shower per day is enough, more after you've sweated a lot, like after a workout.
You might also consider masturbating less
Hot water is bad for your hair and yes you should condition it, though you should probably start with getting a haircut as it looks like absolute shit.
Is this your first time on /fa/ ? I can't imagine how you can fuck up so badly in terms of hair, skin and facial hair.
Could I pull of something like this?
It looks like your forehead is a bit bigger than the guy in the pic, but that hairstyle would probably fit you better than the current one...
whatever you do, long hair wouldn't flatter you much: medium length suits your face much better.
We might help you more if you posted a pic from the front: a pic from the side doesn't tell us much.
I'd have to see your face from the front to be sure, but taking care of the basics should be your top priority. I know this is the long hair general and you likely came here for hair tips but for the love of god, man, don't shower that frequently, shave whatever it is you have as facial hair and get your hair cut in whatever style that isn't what you have right now.
Are they long enough for this? My dad told me I could pull it off. Would girls like it?
I have many broken hairs, more than the girl in this pic.
What can be done about them?
How come skaters always have the best hair? Genes? No-poo?
That fiddly beard is top cringy, PLEASE shave it of. Accept that you are not as mature as you may wished for, that does not make you a bad person. But that hair does not hide anything. It just screams "insecure"
>makes me feel mature so i'm keeping it
the point is that a beard has to be well-kept and grow well to look good and not like you're just sloppy and don't want to shave.
It looks particularly bad if it's like yours, not yet full... jesus christ it's not even a stubble, you just have some hair on your chin and on your sides.
You gotta keep shaving it until you can grow a decent one, and if you can't, just go for a shaved look.
There are a lot of other ways to feel "mature": keeping bad facial hair isn't one of them.
It just makes you look like an hobo.
No, you can't pull off THAT. Haircut unique and weird like that can be pulled off only by guys with a very attractive face, on anyone else they just look stupid and tryhard.
Not saying you can't have an unique hairstyle, but don't just copy another one that might not compliment your face at all.
we don't use shampoo and just wash with water
some don't even wash their hair at all
anyways the key to not having horribly dry bulky hair is not shampooing... some guys' hair smell bad though
So my hair is to my shoulders now, how can I wear it so potential employers don't laugh at me? Should I do a ponytail?
>too many short hairs
>make them shorter!
There might be something to be said about shortening other hairs, though. I mean layering the entire thing to disguise broken hairs.
How do I communicate this to a hairdresser without being turned into a male Farrah Fawcett?
Any suggestions on what to do with my hair?
Nah senpai, I usually wear a beanie and make it not so sloppy by putting in some forming cream and styling it a bit but I havent touched it today so its just curly af
Working on it, any suggestions on how to wear it when it gets longer?
>any suggestions on how to wear it when it gets longer?
uh, not really lol. It's probably going to be in the awkward stage more than most because its so curly. Also dont forget to get it trimmed every now and then.
I'm the guy from earlier. I do it as soon as I wake up, then during my morning shower. I work retail so sometimes I see some hot girls and occasionally do it at work. I then pick up something to eat, eat it. Go home and do it again and then in the shower again.
How to take a good pic? I tried to take a picture of my long hair, but in every single one my face looked retarded as fuck so I don't want to post.
When other people take pictures of me I look like a normal human bean, but whenever I try to take the picture myself it fails miserably.
ideas for what to do with my hair? contemplating growing it out but don't want to go through the awkward stage, long enough to manbun on top but fuck that shit.
For the first time, my hair almost reaches down my ass.
any tip to care hair that long?
kinda long idk
getting haircut tomoz tell me what i should do
try growing it out until it's about as long as pic related, then you should be able to achieve the look you want
This is my hair how long to get it like >>10852161
Going for beyond shoulders.. don't know how far
Also, did the shaving improve my look?
Just started growing my hair out and it's long enough to where I should probably start brushing it. Anything in particular I should look for when buying a brush?
Been growing this shit out for a few years now.
Anything else teach me how to stimulate facial hair growth
my hair ( pic related) is straight as fuck and i don't like it, how to make it look more like >>10851730?
Picture is shit quality, but you get the texture, how do i achieve the texture of OP's pic?
How the hell do you get your hair to form these kind of strands? Every time I grow long hair it just remains in perfectly uniform mass like pic related.
Guys I have a problem... I am growing my hair out atm and yesterday I saw many people laughing at me, feels shitty man.
Hair is in awkward stage and I wear it behind ears, what do? I can do a topknot with more than half of my hair, the rest is too short.
>people laughed at you for having slightly longer hair?
It looks bad atm because awkward stage but yeah basically. Was wearing a parka with fur too and probably looked very feminine, I really dont give a fuck despite my insecurities, I just want my hair to look good.
>thats a big no anon, cmon you're better than this.
Yeah I tried and it lookd awful, will stick to hair behind ears
Not sure if I would look good in long hair.
I've been growing it out for a few months and this is what I've got. Around 5-6 on top and 4-5 around the back and sides.
What kind of cuts would fit my face?
You should still get your hair trimmed and styled at salon eventhough you are growing it. Just tell them you are growing your hair and don't want to reduce length. They can thin it in the right places, trim and make layers that will do wonders in the awkward stage.
Is it worth trying to grow it out longer?
Maybe trying for this look
Would long hair suit me or should i just stick with shorter cuts?
Also this is probably as much stubble i like to have before i shave it.
pls no bully
second week now. I have long, super fine hair and it works surprisingly well, even in this early stage. My hair seems to have more substance, more mass. I wash every other day using rhassoul and a lemon juice leave-in. I also use a boar birstle brush. Tried almond oil after washing, but it made my hair look greasy and awfull.
I'd say go for it.
Hello friends. I have decided to grow my hair once more. Last time it ended up with a jewfro of dimensions, but mostly because I didnt think about it in any way.
General tips on # of washes/week and recommendations for a good conditioner?
over 1 year growth from a pretty short haircut. got it trimmed about a month ago to even everything out. no products. shampoo everyday which I want to phase out of, but my hair is just so fucking greasy otherwise so I'm scared. eventually want to have shoulder/just above shoulder length.
comin up in 4 years no haircut, winter weather makin this shit staticy and it sticks to my face all the time. Kinda sucks.
Natural bristle for sure, and NEVER brush your hair when it's wet (it'll snag on everything and pull out tons of hair). Comb it when it's wet instead, with a wide-toothed comb. I like the look and feel of Swissco combs.
Brush from the ends of your hair to your roots, not the other way around like you always see on tv. Brushing is essential because otherwise you get the back-of-hair dreadlock from sleeping on it.
think its worth growing any more? its gonna get wavy in a few months. ive been trying to keep it pushed back but it only works when i just woke up.
How long does your hair have to be before you can get it like this?
I kinda want to dye my hair blondish 2bh famo
How bad is my hair down?
My impression is that its pretty fem, not my goal.
Almost always have it in a bun, normally better than this but I'm tired.
So I buzzed my hair in November and my hair is just under three inches long right now (no bully).
I've been taking Biotin, should I also get just a regular daily multivitamin to help my hair grow?
Also, how long will it take before my hair goes down to my jaw?
I'm trying to go Bowie-core too. Funny thing is I decided to when I heard Blackstar a few days before he was kill. Now I'm going to be a bandwagoner.
But to answer your question, I have no idea. But we're in this together Bowiefriend.
I am going for this
Could use a little advice/support
Length in the back could use a trim to even up but I'm afraid I'll lose the curls that have formed there which give me some better overall shape.
10-11 months no cuts at all btw
How am I doing?
Texture has felt a little chunky. I've been no-poo for 2.5 years and I've noticed recently some grease build-up, which is the opposite of what most people with long hair report (i.e. dryness, need to condition). Anyone had experience with this? Is conditioning really the answer?
Finally, the beard. I've noticed low hair density on the sides -> maybe kinda looks like pubes? Please advise. Never had a beard before. 2 months growth.
Punk as in "This punk will not be getting a job here", or "the only girl who dates this guy is going to look like a male punk" kind of punk.
Grow up man stop hiding from your insecurities by dressing like a "KEEP AWAY" sign.
fuck you man, you hair is perfect.
I have kinda pic related but a but more curly.
I fucking wish I had your hair. Dude I am serious, it is fucking PERFECT as it is.
If you were going for that "millenial Little Finger" look, you nailed it.
what shape is my head? Would I benefit from longer hair? Pic isn't usual hairstyle btw, just brushed it out of my face for the picture, just woke up.
What does /fa/m think ablut my hair? Top is about 15-18cm long and sides are faded to 8mm. Gonna grow kinda "overgrown" pomp.
What can be done with this mess? Hair gets really tangled at the back. Has been growing for about 10 months.
Growing mine from buzzcut ATM, few questions:
Do you guys use hairdryers or let it air dry ?
Should thick haired folk get their hair thinned ?
What difference does layering make ?
Pic related - goal
Blowdrying, if you have fine hair, usually makes it straight and uniform, like a helmet. If you want the piece-y, windswept, wavy look, let it air dry.
The jury is out on layers... as a guy you definitely don't want them to be too noticeable but you also don't want Murderface hair...
Have had long hair for years, getting tired of keeping up with it. What do you think, does long hair suit my head/face or should I do something else? I've been wanting to try a buzz cut for a while but I'm not sure if that would suit me.
All that shit is, is salt, fragrance and water. I used to work at the mexican filled shithole in phoenix that made that crap. Avoid any hair care products with salt in them unless you want your scalp to itch like you have scabies. Cheap shampoos use salt as a thickening agent. Im not talking about price, either.
fugg guys I got long hair buts its really thin and looks like this shit. wat do?
Is Shinsuke Nakamura's hair /fa/
Light source up and to the side, slightly in front of the face
Multiple light sources are good too (google "3-point lighting")
Sitting directly under one light source is to be avoided, very unflattering
Too long to sit right to short to tie back, why live senpai? I have a wax that makes my hair just fall over the side in a weird curl if I try to put it back. Don't know what to do, any help is appreciated.
Thanks for the response homie. What's murderface hair?
You made a good decision. Work on the weight if you can, some people just have puffy cheeks and it doesn't look like you can pull of an ana look
Pic related is what your bordering on but not as handsome nooffense
is there anything special i should do to achieve this texture, or is it just genetics?
yep you should, just good luck getting past the annoying part of the sides growing long enough to fall down nicely. you got some potential man, I just suggest you to get it done by a professional bc there's a thin line between nice and 'haven't cut my hair fot a year, don't care' long haircuts
and don't go longer than your chin aka medium
and just cover your face next time, you'll receive less jelly replies and more normal ones
I have dry hair and I'm growing it out.
Anyway, my question is: To hydrate my hair can I use a (fat) cream for the face/hands, like pic related? Not asking for some top of the line shit, just if I can get by with what I got.
people say my hair is nice but I don't even do anything with it lol
how do I look though?
that pic is pretty low res actually here's a better one.
ive never seen anyone pull of pale lady-boi so well. Would bang 10/10. Regardless of sex.
Oh. The hair's perf btw. Just dont let it get oily and gross ever because then u'll turn into gross hobo grunge.
Pic related is from months ago but it's the same hairstyle I always have: short on the back and sides, a bit longer on the top and swept to the side. Grow it out or leave it the same/short?
Also here's a super grainy picture from the summer of the longest I ever let it get.
is that supposed to be Jim Morrison?
All these are fucking glorious. Every time I grow long hair it just ends up looking like pic related.
Am I 100% fucked?
You need to let your bangs grow more and whenever you finish showering put a little product on your hair and comb it back. Eventually it will take a shape that stays out of your forehead.
cian twomey ass lookin nigga
