The weirdest I ever had my hair was shoulder length, no bangs, and I kept it all in tiny braids.
Gear: More junk than I know what to do with
If, for some reason you need a visual base for all of this. I have dark, very straight, and fine hair, but it's relatively thick, but not getting any thicker.
Growing up my parents gave me the Beatles cut. I still have no idea why. My dad prefers the Moody Blues and my mom like a cappella music.
Around 7th grade I went to a shorter, parted on the side, cemented with hairspray cut.
That sort of morphed into a bowl cut that lasted until late junior year of high school.
Then I started growing it out and it got down to the middle of my back.
Then, late sophomore year of college I got it buzzed down to about a half inch.
That's sort of morphed to a generic layer cut.
In 2005 or so I started actually using hair products and my hair finally started looking presentable.

Grade school soccer dork
Now that I think of it my whole class was soccer dorks.
We had to wear Sambas because we were required to wear black tennis shoes with our school uniform (navy pants and plain white collared shirt). Later on some of the cool kids even wore Gazelles. In my last year of grade school the allowed you to wear any tennis shoes you wanted, so I had some North Carolina Blue suede pumas. Those were awesome.
Ah jeez... A timeline?
Kept it pretty short from a lil dude till I was about 14. Years of buzz cuts.
12? (Yeah I straight rocked a visor WITH spiky hair. Gawd...)
14 Dreads (Wow was I awesome...)
16 Long hair with a ****load of rubber bands in it
18 Long-ass hair
21 some chick butchered my hair
22 The experimental phase
And nowadays I keep it fairly short
I knew this place was filled with fashion divas.
I never realized how much of one GJ is!

Shoulder length parted in the middle until I enlisted I the US Army.
Grown out some after I got out.
Gradually shorter as the top got gradually thinner. No part.
Pft. My wife cuts it. My typical response is, "I don't care. You have to look at it."
Good one jolly
I'm a guy, early 40's. ...I've had it all. As a kid in the 70's, my mum enforced me to have long blonde surfer hair - not really cool when other parents say you have a lovely daughter - gee thanks mum, it was my hair, not her's.
In the 80's - a mullet of course, like who didn't.
90's - Dave murray, James Hetfield
2000's - got sick of tying it back for work, so cut it short - nothing special.
2000's onwards. Shaved my head just to mess with people. It's only hair, stuff that grows out of your head, it does not define who you are, make you any stronger or give you magical musical abilities. Plus I was losing it, so I keep it shaved/short.
Now, I would not grow it long even if I could. I do not want to look like Mick Fleetwood, as cool as he is. Very few older guys can get away with long, wispy, grey ponytails - it just looks silly. It's a pain in the a@@ to wash it, it gets in the way, gets stuck in the car's engine if you're working on it, hangs everywhere when your having sex, gets caught in your guitar strap, looks silly, clogs up the basin. Nothing worse than seeing an older dude with an Iron Maiden T-shirt that is so old, grey n faded, with scraggly looking hair wishing they were still twenty y.o. You're not, get over it. Have some class.

The only wild hair I've ever had was up my a$$.
I'm Rich, I'm Beuatiful! <p>
