What Your Boyfriend Would Look Like With Prom Hair

Meet five guys who know how to rock an updo...

If you’ve ever wondered what guys with long hair might look like if they had fancy lady hairstyles you are, apparently, not alone. Jessica Saia of The Bold Italic took eight guys with long hair to a salon and had their hair done up right. (Or maybe wrong, we’re still not sure about a couple of them). Check them our favorites below:

"The Junior" Prom featuring neck hair

We don’t know if it’s the featured neck hair that makes this one so upsetting or if it’s the moustache and goatee paired with it. Either way there’s a whole lot of hair happening on this guy’s head -- but we don’t totally hate it. Let's just hope his prom date doesn’t sport the same style.

The "Sass Bun" featuring baby's breath

The Sass Bun is every bit as disturbing as it is fancy. The curled strands acting as makeshift bangs and the bunch on top kind of make this guy look like Pebbles from the Flintsones, if Pebbles could grow a moustache. As if the hairdo isn’t sassy enough, the face he makes as he presents his coif sure is.

The "Hippie Wedding" featuring a man beard

The hippie wedding is everything you’d expect it to be. Honestly this man looks exactly like a few baristas we’ve seen around our neighborhood, so seeing this one in real life might not even turn that many heads. And braids are so in right now.

The "Mother of the Bride" featuring salt and pepper

This do “puts a manly twist on matrimony” in a way that's comforting and yet so totally wrong. There's clearly some excellent craftsmanship going on with this style (hello, fabulous bump on top). Every one knows the most important part of a hairstyle is confidence, and this guy doesn’t lack it. So many feels about this one.

The "Mormon Prom" featuring modesty

The Mormon prom is “deceptively modest,” but we don’t think it’s deceptively anything (although it does kind of make us want to re-watch Big Love). This guy rocks the style so well he may want to consider incorporating it into his regular morning routine, provided he’s willing to wake up at the crack of dawn to put in the time.
