    Good point.

    Long, thick wavy hair on men is sexy. I remember Walter Schupfer, male model from the nineties and his gorgeous long wavy tresses. He cut his hair and lost much appeal. Around the same time, Fabio was big. His long straight hair just wasn't as attractive, IMO, but it helped balance out his insane jawline.

    Nick Ashford wore his gorgeous, long wavy hair well back in the day. I saw some pics of him now much older, with straightened hair, and it just looks wrong.

    I think that part of the reason long, straight hair doesn't look right on black men but looks right on, say, a white man is because the black men I see usually have it in a style that women wear. They're hair tends to be parted, curled, or accessorized like a woman's. Look at those pics of Real and Chance, Omarion, etc. Women wear those styles. And the pic of Andre 3000. How many women do we know with that exact hairstyle?

    And, of course, that isn't their natural texture.

    The white men I see with long hair usually have it pulled back in a simple ponytail, or just out in it's regular state -- no primping and curling.

    I hate straight hair on men. I do believe it looks worse when they have facial hair with straight hair. Just wrong! :nono: I agree that Michael Jackson is the ONLY man that actually looked good with long hair to me.

    Because white women don't be wearing simple ponytails or letting it simply hang all day long

    You're right he does look good.
