Headshave or Long Hair
I love long
hair on men and I love men who like to look feminine and long hair is a great
asset for that. Whenever I see a man with beautiful long hair, I imagine
brushing his hair and running my fingers through it. I also like to imagine
styling it into various ponytails and pigtails or even an updo. I just can’t help
myself. Long hair just asks to be played with. More on that in my article about men with long hair.
But recently I’ve been getting into the whole headshaving thing. Baldness has a great appeal too. Although it can look more masculine, I also find that it can make someone look vulnerable too. Vulnerability is another thing that I find appealing in men in certain situations. I’d like to stroke a bald head and brush over it with my long hair. Contrasts rule!
And I don’t just mean the hairstyle (not that I’d call it a hairstyle) but also the actual process of shaving a man’s head. The thought of taking a pair of clippers and buzzing off all his long hair is very exciting. I suppose it’s the shock value of it and the control element. I know I’d also regret it because of my love for long hair but that’s just one of those contradictions.
I searched around a little about head shaving and it turns out I’m not the only one by a long shot. There’s a ton of websites, videos and communities dedicated to people who are obsessed with haircutting and headshaving. Many of them are even into female headshaving!!! Some just love bald heads and others love the haircutting action. It seems that many people see headshaving as an act of submission. That makes sense if you think that slaves were often shorn. With men it also seems to stem from childhood when they were often not allowed to grow their hair long and given forced haircuts. That sort of thing can turn into a fixation later in life. But I had no idea that so many people had this thing for haircutting!
My boyfriend doesn’t share my interest in headshaving (yet). I can’t say I blame him. We both love his long hair and it is a major part of his beauty. One day I want to see him without it though. I think he’s just reluctant now but might like it once his hair is gone.
I remember talking to a psychologist once and she said that hair is nearly always a big deal and unlike clothes, it is a part of your body so changing it or even cutting it off can be a very powerful act. Maybe that explains why there are so many haircutting websites out there.
What do you all think about this and have you ever taken a pair of electric clippers and run them through a full head of hair? If so, what was it like? Sounds like loads of fun to me.
Really want to hear your thoughts on this.
