Ha! Guys with Fancy Lady Hair are Fierce, Fabulous and Only a Wee Bit Feminine (PHOTOS)

Depending on where you live, it can cost you a few hundred dollars to get your hair cut — Ii you’re a woman, that is. If you’re a man, it can cost you just $10 to $20. That’s generally because a) you live in a ridiculously expensive area (think Manhattan or San Francisco), and b) women get fancy things, like layers, in their hair, while men just get it cut.

But why is it that women have all the fun on top of their heads? Some men have long hair, too. Why are men relegated to just a ponytail if they yearn for something different — and, perhaps, special — up there?

Jessica Saia, for one, isn’t putting men into a hair corner. Nope, the San Francisco-based writer (for The Bold Italic) wants to “change the way we look at men’s locks.” So she took some of them to a fancy-schmancy salon in that city by the bay to get them some “fancy lady updos.”

The result? “Babys-breath taking,” Saia writes.
