Let down thy hair my love!

Peng! magazine, issue 5

While male dress has appropriated many forms of female decoration, with hair it often stops short at the methods of hair dressing.  Straightening, perming, and the application of pomade or mousse to retain shape and form, male hairdressing often stops short of the use of curlers, pins and hairspray.  The pleasure in seeing these processes of hair styling applied to the male form is immeasurable, perhaps because the images refrain from reducing the masculinity of the sitter.
