hair thursday makeover 54

Meet Dave.

Some of you might recognize this man. Dave is the brother of one of my very favorite people in the universe, Kristin of Better Now fame. If you don’t regularly read Kristin’s blog (which OMG, what are you waiting for?), she recently posted about the state of Dave’s hair.

No matter how much mocking he hears from his family or girlfriend, Dave will NOT cut his 1990s long hair because, among other reasons, “the chicks dig it.” Dave, Dave, Dave….what are we going to do with you?

Kristin put a call out to her readers and Dave agreed to cut his locks if she received 500 comments (which now stands at 465 as I type this). Looks like it might be time for the choppy chop, Dave. Will the handsome, grizzly, people-wary Mountain Man shed a tear over lost locks? We shall soon see.

Don’t worry, Dave. You are in good hands – I promise you, even with shorter hair, I will pick looks that the chicks will be sure to dig.

Let’s get started. First off, Dave has great hair. It’s thick and wavy and the minute I saw his photos, I immediately thought of Scott Speedman.

And look, Dave! Scott Speedman rocked the longer, straggly ‘do as well.

Eh, it’s not horrible, but it most certainly is not good. What about these two options?

Now, that’s what I’m talking about. Option #1 is the shorter of the two – the back of the hair is short enough to be hidden from a frontal view, but the top still has length so Dave can still show off his blond, wavy locks. And don’t even get me started on how perfectly this cut would accent Dave’s strong jaw and features.

Option #2 has the same general shape in the front as #1, but is longer all around. This might be a good way for Dave to ease into the shorter hair look.

Either way, I have a sneaking suspicion that the ladies will be swooning once Dave’s hair is short enough to show off his handsome features. (Don’t get any ideas, gals. He’s taken.)

Oh! One other thing – these haircuts look great with a little scruff.

Am I right or AM I RIGHT? While y’all vote, I’m going to stalk Scott Speedman.

Tell Dave what you think! Which option should be the winning look?

Alright, time to meet yet another Dave.

Dave’s lovely girlfriend Kate sent me an email with a desperate plea to help her man. I would have to agree that it is indeed desperado time. Dave, we need to cut that hair off.

Now, Dave’s hair has a couple of challenges – it is curly, but very prone to stringiness and frizz. Kate told me that his usual process consists of cutting his hair to ear-length, letting it grow to his shoulders and repeating the process.

I think Dave’s face is being shadowed by that crazy hair and the time has come to say goodbye. Here are the options I propose.

Option #1 is a good look for Dave’s hair type. In fact, this actor’s hair has a very similar texture and weight. This cut would put the focus back on Dave’s face, and I’m pretty sure saying sayonara to those stringy curls would not only look great, but feel great too.

Option #2 is a little longer, just in case Dave feels a little hesitant. What I do like about this cut is that the sides are hitting at the top of the ear, so the overall look is much cleaner.

What do you all think? Be sure to tell Dave #2 what to do!

    First of all, THANK YOU for the glut of Speedman pictures. That boy is so ridiculously cute.

    Anyway, I think both of these Daves will be getting plenty of flirting from the ladies with the short cuts you’re recommending. I picked option 1 for both guys.

    I am dull and immune to the fact that hundreds of Internet Ladies are perving on my brother. It used to horrify me, now it’s just a fact of life.

    I voted #1 for both, too.

    I like number 2 a lot but will he know how to work the front?
    Does it require a comb back and some gel, or will his hair do that naturally?
