I've had long hair a few times before, but I'm in my 40s now, and I enjoy having my hair just above my shoulders. I don't tend to visit hairdressers often since I'm in China, and they tend to want to give Korean boy cuts. Horrible. Long hair is extremely unfashionable here so they cut oddly regardless of what I tell them. Thankfully, being older, my hair doesn't grow as fast as it used to.
The only problem is that it naturally splits down the middle so that the hair falls to either ear. I'd like to have it set up to go backwards, similar to when it's tied up in a pony tail, but a little loose. At the same time I want it free rather than tied. Not sure how to explain it better.
I've seen a variety of guys who seem to be able to do it, but I've no idea how they're doing it. It doesn't look as flaky with hair spray or gel, and I haven't seen any hair clips.
So... am I missing something obvious? Or is it just a good hair cut?
