Men Parting Their Hair Down The Middle

It is pretty much commonly regarded that men look silly with their hair parted down the middle (Alfalfa) but not so for women. Why?
 

All through the 60s and 70s men usually split their long hair with a center-part, including me. It only looks silly now that we're losing it and/or wearing it short. Center-parts on men were all the rage in Europe back in the days of wigs and tights. So, I guess it has to do with hair length, and maybe the question we should be asking is Why did men start shearing off their locks?

Hmmm.............'parting one's hair down the middle'?
I tried that once, but people just pointed their fingers in my direction and laughed.............it was my Mam who told me to try parting it the other way........instead of from ear to ear.

ROFLMAO!

I say part your hair any way your like, just don't partake in combing your hair by starting at the base of your neckline and dragging it the front, now that's a problem! :)

Or letting a fringe grow long over the ears and swinging it over a bald top.
ROFLMAO, Gennie! :)

OMG, yes! I had a teacher in high-school that wore his hair like that, and between his BO, his comb-over, his tight polyester-fortrell dress slacks with snags all over the thighs, and the nicotine smell on him, let's just say, what a sight he was.

Well I am blessed with still having hair on top of my head, and am considering parting it in the middle when my covid quarantine haircut gets longer.
A while back my brother asks me[tongue in cheek] "why do you still have hair on top of your heard?" I guess part of the reason I'm letting it grow is to provide the answer: "because I can!" šŸ˜

Oh maybe it's because men don't really notice where the women part their hair because they're busy looking somewhere else, while women usually look higher up on a man!

Cerebral cleavage is a functional part of men's DNA, This is why when we buy cantaloupes we reach with both hands seeing two but buying only one. No cure to date.

What I don't like is smashed down hair, no matter how it's parted. The styles now for young woman seem to be to take all the life out the hair and almost paste it to the head. If that's all a person's hair will do, then it's obvious, and it looks fine. But I will be glad when hair with a little body comes back in style. Basically I think hair style is a very individual thing. What looks good on one person does not necessarily look good on another, as with everything. Preference is very individual. I think parted down the middle looks okay on children. Beyond that, not so much.
