A hairy mo­ment

QHav­ing missed an ap­point­ment or two with the bar­ber, my locks are now graz­ing my col­lar and I rather like the ef­fect. I’m tempted to keep go­ing awhile and even try a ‘man bun’. What are your thoughts on longer hair on men? If it makes any dif­fer­ence to your de­ci­sion, it’s thick and lus­trous. B. W., Ayr­shire

AGo for it. I’m a Re-maner. Not be­cause the short-back and sides was a mere dreary blip in male tri­cho­log­i­cal evo­lu­tion, nor be­cause mas­cu­line cou­ture des­per­ately needs any imag­i­na­tion and va­ri­ety that it can mar­shal. Not even be­cause I be­lieve—to put things baldly—that those for­tu­nate enough to have it should flaunt it. It’s be­cause you live in Ayr­shire.

Chan­nel your for­tu­nate county’s wild and vir­tu­ally dread­locked bard Rab­bie Burns, while at the same time de­fend­ing your­self against the midges. Why not go the whole hog and kilt up while you’re at it? Just one word of cau­tion, how­ever. Af­ter the age of 30, un­less you’re a Sikh, a surfer or a heavy-me­tal mu­si­cian, the man bun should be avoided.
