So I'm a dude with curly hair and I love the "emo" hair style. So I've grown my hair out more and now I straighten it. Most people think it is awesome, but some people say that I am gay because of it. Why? give me your honest opinions

well, both parties are at fault here.

Them, for saying you're gay(and implying that being gay is bad) because you like a shit hairstyle, and you, for liking the shit hairstyle.

A certain house was overrun with Mice. A Cat, discovering this, made her way into it and began to catch and eat them one by one. Fearing for their lives, the Mice kept themselves close in their holes. The Cat was no longer able to get at them and perceived that she must tempt them forth by some device. For this purpose she jumped upon a peg, and suspending herself from it, pretended to be dead. One of the Mice, peeping stealthily out, saw her and said, "Ah, my good madam, even though you should turn into a meal-bag, we will not come near you."

Touching the hair? I can imagine how that scenario would come across as homo-erotic.

But on a serious note, I think it's cuz people, men and women, see straightening the hair as a female trait, so if you're showing a female straight they might think you're metro or homosexual.

Most people want their hair to look good, but women go nuts on the amount of shit they put their hair through. Men are meant to "not really care".

Not saying this is the right way, but unfortunately society is what it is. Own it, be confident and fvck what others say.

Because curly hair is better OBVIOUSLY I mean I have curly hair and I'm the best and I only straighten the top part once every few months for special occasions, not that it lasts more than a few hours anyway because CURLS ARE STRONGER AND BETTER

The people telling you your hair is awesome now are probably people who thought it looked gay back when it was curly lol.

It's all in the matter of perspective, brah. Just do what you want or something. Idk.

there are no 'honest opinions' to give
a significant proportion of people have stupid preconceptions about blokes with long hair
that's all there is to it

it doesn't bother me, whether it bothers you is your call

Do yourself a favour. Get a hair trimmer, put on shortest setting, shave all your hair off. You're welcome.

Cause "emo" kids wear tight pants, make up and dress like girls. It only makes sense that they like guys.


Not that there's anything wrong with that.

People say you are gay because the emo look is very girly.
If you made yourself look more manly, you wouldn't have this problem.

They might call you "gay" because it might not be a professional cut in the first place. If you go to an expensive stylist, they'll make it look legit. But if you're going to some random place in the mall for example, that might be the issue.

Also, the "emo" look isn't a manly haircut by society's standards (although in 2010 if you had a ukelele along with it you had literally all the girls). The manly cut currently is the hipster-lumberjack-combover with a beard. So make a variation of the two I guess, it's kind of what I have at the moment. If the main part of your emo cut is the signature hair flop over your eyes, do something like this:

This is a terrible haircut. Why would you suggest this?

@TS:
Look, cut your hair, you damn hippy (read: emo kid)!

Edit:
Also, TS, the people who "think it's awesome" are probably just being polite. They probably think it's really lame and don't want to offend your fragile ego.

Really wouldn't take much notice of other people and their judgments.

I had the 'emo' look, in full wonderful blunder from age 15-17 and I at the time felt comfortable in myself and I take that as the only thing that mattered. Yes I also straightened my hair too, which is totally fine for a guy to do. I used to get so much shit from my best friend at the time because he was the total opposite to me, i.e he had very short hair. But the truth is, he also took a lot of pride in his hair, probably more than I did so he was very hypocritical to which I called him out on.

I think the more common stuck with view however is short hair vs long hair on guys. It's totally fine for a guy with short hair to spend an hour in the mirror getting it how he wants it, however if there is a guy with long hair, whether or not you spend time treating it, you'll have more negative attention.


OP I see that you are young, it is no myth that when you're older you'll likely realize your blunders. But thats the beauty of growing out of phases, enjoy it while you can.

P.S - Consider dreadlocks to really piss people off

A lot of guys are borderline afraid to be anything associated with being feminine. Long hair is feminine to most people and women usually spend a lot of time on their hair. I know some guys that spend more time on their short hair than I did when my was long but no one really cares.

honestly it's hair. If what people says gets to you, get a different hairstyle. If what they say doesn't get to you, don't get a different hairstyle.

The point of it was to show the "emo hair" kind of thing done more as a combover, as opposed to this:

Back when I did that stupid scene hair straightening shit in highschool I had to spend a good 30-40 minutes. My hair was really, really full and thick and I never got it layered or anything.


Then I grew up and got lazy and well now I have no hair to need to maintain.
