A Quick Poll

Katie sent me an email tonight with the following YouTube video. This to me shows our different generations.

So - here's the poll. Watch this following video and note the last actor. Love his hair or hate it?

Love it for the character and time period. Hate it for real life.

So what does that say about me? lol

JenB said...

Ack! I don't like long hair on men at all. (age 27)

Carrie Lofty said...

Not working for me. But then, my tastes are running toward mohawks on Frenchies at the moment.

Phyl said...

Love it.

Kristie (J) said...

Jenster: LOL - it says you have a foot in both worlds - you are a cross generalizationer!

Jenb: *grin* You fall into Katies end of the generation.

"But then, my tastes are running toward mohawks on Frenchies at the moment." And with piercings on their eyebrows *wink* Carrie.

Phyl: Aaahh Thank You - me too!!

Bridget Locke said...

LOL! Um, yeah, not a big fan on the long hair on Mr. Armitage. There aren't a lot of men who can pull it off. One who comes to mind is DDL in Last of the Mohicans. :)

Kristie (J) said...

Oh yes - DDL in LOTM!! And Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod. The shallow me lost a lot of interest in the show when he chopped off his locks.

Leslie said...

LOL ~ I think Richard and I have the same hairstyle.

Get thee to a salon!

heidenkind said...

Hate it. I've heard good things about this series, though.

Hilcia said...

Hmm, I like men with long hair. However, I do think it might be a generational thing. I grew up when hot young men wore long hair, lol! I think it looks good for the part; I know its not fashionable ATM.

HE NEEDS HIS HAIR CUT!!

Marianne McA said...

LOL. I don't mind long hair on men, but that hairstyle just doesn't suit him.
I'm 45 - does that ruin your theory?

Amy C said...

Yeah, I'd say he needs a hair cut but his hair isn't normally like that, right? Just for the show?

Carolyn Jean said...

KJ, I'm in my 40s and I say that long hair is HOT.

Janicu said...

Eck, don't like it. I'm 30 if that helps the poll.

Renee said...

I love long hair, as long as it looks good. RA can carry it off, but not the way it looks in that scene.

I'm a girl of the 80's, 42 y/o. Back then, we had guys with both long (and unfortunately) big 80's hair, as well as the preppy short cuts.

Jessica said...

Hate long hair on men, period.

In my 30s (late).


ps. Yippee! I can comment on RoR again!

Judy Gasperini said...

He has really nice hair (for a woman). I don't like long hair on men. I remember when it was in back in the 70s.

Tracy said...

As a lover of longer hair on men I have to say love it!

C2 said...

I guess it works okay for the period - but didn't knights, etc. keep their hair short to stay out of the way under a helm, etc.? Otherwise, no no no. I liked his hair better last season and in real life.

azteclady said...

Well... I don't give a fig about the hair one way or the other, so I can't vote either of the choices :-(

Sayuri said...

Kirstie - You do know Mr Armitage has started another permanant role at the BBc on Spooks. More yummy goodness to be had.

Katiebabs a.k.a KB said...

AL: You no like the luscious Richard?

LorelieLong said...

Not working for me either, but I don't think the problem is that it's long. It's that it's long, and styled and blowdried. Ick. I'm not such a fan of long hair on guys, but those who can pull it off can usually do so because of an eff-off attitude. Which the blow drying and styling products totally negate.

(Plus I second the vote for Frenchies w/ mohawks.)

azteclady said...

Katie, I just don't give a fig about his hair :cheeky grin:

Lisa Marie Wilkinson said...

I love long hair on men,as long as it's clean and styled.

itsme said...

I am fifty and his hair looks nasty.

Kwana said...

Yikes!! My eyes!! That is girly hair. Lose the part and sweep it back from his face for something. Please.
