Women uniformly hate them.

And it will make mugging you easier for me.

OK, the women who chime in to disagree (pssst, same sort who post a lot on the internet). They probably like fantasy and sci-fi as well and . . . well I'll be nice and stop there.

EDIT: There are exceptions. Gebre can rock his. William you are a red-headed maniac. Tone that down. Coming from some who has had to carry the burden of being various degree of red-headed in life, the ponytail is horrible.

So I tried to change the color of Brad Pitt's hair to match William's, but I'm probably way off:

Dude, that is good. It ain't a good look. Unless you want to look like a viking and again attract the uberinternet women.

I'm not as red headed as my pic I posted here makes me look. It varies from red to blond to brown depending on the lighting or how much sun I've gotten recently. Right not it is pretty dark blond.

Anyway, how does one 'tone down' red hair?

What a wonderful afternoon to spend on a Sunday instead of making friends IRL, I'm at home photoshopping Gingerz.

Sweet. And that kid is so damn scary, he's like peering deep into my soul.

Nick is pretty much my link to the internet. I don't surf and stuff. And I certainly wouldn't be looking for gingers. I had to hear about this stuff at work and found it sorta offensive and outta control.

I would think just a little longer on the top it would be good.

I really don't see you pulling either off. Although:

But at the end of the day, it's hair. It can grow back and it can be cut. So do what you want with it and prove us wrong I guess.

white barbershop

 ???

Apartheid?

One could argue I guess.

The black barber shop is a whole thing in black areas of America. Classic hairstyling is quite different for white and black men. So you have often shops which cater to one or the other. America is cut along racial divides at times more ways than one.

What happens if, say, an Asian goes to a Black barbershop or a Black to a White barbershop?

Let's be clear here, I am talking men's hair.

If you are "Asian", you better be looking for a fade of some sort. I can't imagine getting another sorta cut in a black barber shop.

A black guy in a white place? He is probably going to get a less quality cut.

Black hair and white are very different (I am generalizing). But you can get your hair cut wherever. There used to be a barber culture of sorts in America. It still thrives in black areas, if a black guy lives in a city, I can't see why they would go to a primarily white barber shop (which are becoming harder and harder to find, except for hacky ones in hipster neighborhoods or European style in business districts).

I go to a Mexican barbershop.
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

Hey, it's an internet forum, it's made for people to be outspoken. :)

And actually, I think that's kind of healthy (to a certain degree). It gives people an opportunity to talk and discuss things which would be difficult to talk about in the real world, at least in the same degree. Granted, there are often situations where things could be handled much better, but for the most part, I think this forum is beneficial.
