    There is most definitely something amiss in a man who would sport a bouffant hairstyle.

    Looks like the OP is stuck in the past - that photo must be 30+ years old!

    I treat my hair like I treat a beautiful woman...

    Tactless McTactlessyface!
    Why would you post this during the first period in living memory when nobody is able to access the place where they would normally get their haircut? We're all sporting a little extra at the moment, surely, men and women alike?
    This, for example, is the selfie I took this morning. Nothing amiss here at all.

    Buddhists strike me as peaceful. I sported such a cut in my youth many years ago.

    If they 'strike you' I'd say that is far from peaceful! ;)

    Welcome to the 1960s (and Gene's latest pointless thread!)

    I guess it's simply because they can :(

    Could offend bald men. Or women. Or anyone not defining as either. Men also might find it offensive that women are allowed to have big hair...

    Surely your album from the 1970s must have few intetesting fashion statements?

    Men with bouffant hair is not a Sixties or Seventies phenomenon. It's common today:


    It seems to be the hairstyle of choice for American television evangelists, the late Oral Roberts et al.

    In the case of late North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il, who had bouffant hair and elevator shoes, it may have been a desire to compensate for his short stature.
