I'm a male and I have blonde hair. My hair is about 5 inches long and resolutely curly, and heavily resists what i attempt to do to make it lie flat. I straighten it if I'm going out and brush it in the morning but I don't use gel.
In short: Genetics striking a pact with Fate to fuck shit up on my scalp.
In long: My head is the product of what happens when a man with short wavy brown hair and a woman with curly red hair love each other very much. Trust me, it's Hell trying to make it look like I DON'T have an afro at times. Most of the time I let it grow long and to hell with it, but then I get complexion problems (and it becomes an absolute ************ to keep untangled), so I have to go back to short pseudo-afro country.
fellow escapist, kindly state what kind of hair you have, also what gender you are so we get an idea of how it looks, and why you have it that way,
i'm a guy but i have hair that comes down to my shoulders, i think it looks cool, it also differentiates me from my stepdad, who is a very bad person, and is bald. i usually have it in a ponytail, which i know looks much less cool, but it stops it getting in my face
I'm male, and have generally got short brown hair (gets a bit longer towards the end of the semester, as my hairdresser is all the way back in my hometown, 3 1/2 hours away), and it usually looks either scruffy or hat head, as I A) wear a snazzy fedora all the time, and B)am not that picky about hairstyles. So long as it doesn't look like a raccoon is nesting in it I'm generally fine with it.
