Title: Lewis' guide to No Longer Looking Like A Tramp Posted: March 20, 2009 (12:21 PM)
Step 1: Observe huge beard and ludicrous hair. Accept need to change.
Step 2: Hack away at beard.
Step 3: Be sure to leave a careful amount of manly stubble. This is essential in the period between beard-shaving and hair-cutting, particularly if - like me - you have a tendency to look slightly feminine with long hair but without beard.
Step 4: Get hair cut properly. End of homeless-esque days.

It's spooky -- just Tuesday, I hacked off half my facial hair and decided to loose most of the fuzzy brown mop that passes as my hair. I think the recounting of the time I sat in a shop's doorway to do up my shoes and someone gave me a quid to get a cup of coffee was motavation.
Anyway, you may be less hairy, but you're still no bigger than my thumb.

Interesting fact: I have no idea what you look like.

I revel in my mysteriousness.

Interesting fact: Some guys look good with long hair.
Can't make up my mind about you, though.
Interesting fact 2: Some girls like guys with long hair.
EmP just lost 20% of his sex appeal. =P

Suskie is the winner of the Long Hair Game.
Combined with glasses, it's unbeatable.

In the first pic you look like you belong in Mastodon yelling about whales.

Man. How does he get it that sharp? He could like... stab someone with that. XD
Anyway, I've made up my mind. You definitely look better without the hair. =D

you should just get rid of the beard.
the short hair you've got going is pretty class, but that thing you've got growing on the lower half of your face just isn't working out. sad fact of life is that most men can't really pull off facial hair (not particularly sad to me, at least, considering all the neckbeards and shitty goatees and soul patches i see during the course of my day).
otherwise lookin' good, man!

The shorter hair is better because it makes you look more British. Which in your case is a very good thing.

Gonna have to agree with HMD there man. My facial hair is like that too, which is why I don't grow a beard.
Did have pretty long hair for a while though, until just recently when I got it cut really short for my job search.
Edit: Oh, I didn't realize you mentioned that. Yeah, my Twitter photo is a little out of date, but I'll probably keep it anyway since I liked myself better with long hair.
