Not Always a Good Thing

While long hair can be a really good thing, it's not a look that works on everyone.

Just for fun, let's discuss some celebrities that definitely should NOT have long hair, shall we?

Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Here's how he normally looks.  

Here he is with long hair, from the movie Conan the Barbarian from 1982.  

I figured since I listed Jason Momoa in the more recent Conan movie in my last blog, I should include this one for contrast.  So, so, so, so wrong!  Not only does Arnie look HORRIBLE with long hair, they didn't even get the look right!  Conan is supposed to have long BLACK hair, not blonde.  The 1982 version of the movie was horribly written and acted with a blonde Conan.  Everyone involved with that movie should be forced to sit and watch it non-stop for a month as punishment.

George Clooney.

George Clooney is constantly being listed as one of the sexiest men alive.  He's got a rugged handsomeness that lots of women find appealing.  Age has been good to him.  If anything, he gets better looking as time goes by.

AAAAAAAAAGH!!  Burn it!  Burn it!

Tom Hanks.

Award winning actor.  Known for being a kind, sensitive kind of guy.

Words cannot express the horror...

The horror continues...

Nicolas Cage.

Nicolas Cage gets a lot of flack these days.  I realize he makes lots of goofy faces and has no problem with taking on all kinds of movie roles.  I still like him, and I think he's kind of cute.

He sported long hair for the movie Con Air back in 1997.  It's not horrible, but definitely not the best look for him.

I'm not sure what movie role this might be from, or what on earth made him go for the long hair in this picture, but he even looks confused about the whole thing.

Now a word on John Travolta.
He made a name for himself in the show Welcome Back, Kotter back in the mid 70's.  

This is what he looked like back then.

I was never a big fan of that look.
But as time passed, I realized he was getting better looking as he aged.


I can't say he's continued on that trend over the last decade or so.  He definitely hit his peak at one point and then started going back downhill.  Along the way, we've been treated to some "lovely" long-haired looks.

From the movie Michael back in 1996.

In 1994, Pulp Fiction was a REALLY popular film.  His hair in that movie was greasy and long and just plain gross.

Here it is down.

Even pulling it back in a ponytail didn't help.
Double blech.

So there ya go.  Long hair is not always a good thing.

Now... does anyone know where I can get some eye bleach?
