Couldn't find a better place to discuss this than here. Short (Not hair) story is that I've had long hair for about 15 years in my life. Being a guitar player and singer, I think I had benefitted from having long hair to build a good image on stage, pictures, etc. Thing is since last year I've had short hair. Last year, a good job opportunity came and I didn't hessitate a second in having my hair cut. It's true that's been a long time since I have short hair now, but I feel I miss it. This year I left that job and since then I've left my hair to grow. Still not long hair, but not as short as it was. It had been a long time since my band didn't play live, and this year we went back to the stage. Now, me and my drummer didn't have long hair, and I felt an important part of the show was missing. I know it's all about attitude, but having short hair definitely makes it harder. Perhaps is easier for people who are well-built, or that can shave their heads and not look like an Alien. I'm 32 years old now, and gotta start looking for a job again. My girl insists that I should shave my goat beard, and I feel it's time too that I get used to going to a hair dresser. I know most of the responses will be that it's all in the attitude, but definitely looking a guy moving his head with long hair or having beard scores some points when it comes to the show. I'm not a kid anymore, so unless my music/band provided me the money I live, I know I have to depend on the real world, work, and somehow not to go against the flow in the town I live in. I think that with the proper attitude on stage, I wouldn't have the need for long hair. Besides, it makes it easier to play the guitar (The hair with sweat covered my face sometimes), it's more comfortable (it is), and it could help me to get a job faster (which means more gear). What do you guys think?
