Many young guys have embraced growing their locks during the pandemic and refuse to take the cut now that things are back to normal.

Celebrity hairstylist Jason Collier believes longer male manes will continue to be a trend.

She says: “In 2022 we will see men move away from the traditional short, clean cut and we will see longer styles.

“The 2022 style will venture more towards a mullet, with a ruffled and grown shape.

“Huge names like BTS and Justin Bieber have sported longer lengths over the past 12 months, which drops to sink in.”

‘I’M A BOY, I ONLY HAVE BETTER HAIR THAN YOU’

Dawn says, “When Zach was three, he was still nearly bald, with nice blonde hair.

“Now his thick dark hair falls halfway down his back.

“She was six when she decided not to cut it because she wanted it to grow long enough that she could wear it in a ponytail.

“Zach’s long hair helped him win modeling and acting jobs because he stands out and that has boosted his confidence.

“He modeled for an organic clothing company, was an extra on CBBC’s Princess Mirror-Belle and starred opposite David Tennant in the drama Deadwater Fell on Channel 4.

“Zach has never been teased about his hair, which he wears in a ponytail to school and for softball, taekwondo and swimming.

“He plays drums and believes his hair is part of his ‘drum style’.

“Think you’re a rock star. His favorite thing to say, if he’s mistaken for a girl, is, “I’m a boy, I only have better hair than you.”

Nicki says, “When Harry was two, his blonde hair was so thin he looked almost bald.

“Then he got thick and I tried to get him trimmed a couple of times, but he always ended up in tears.

“Harry loves his curls and the lock was an opportunity for him to properly try on long hair. Now it’s down to his life.

“I got some weird looks from people when they realized Harry is a boy, but we don’t care.

“He’s always asked if he’s a girl and he loves to make it clear. Others tell me they are jealous of her lovely long hair.

“Her grandfather, who is 70, loves the rebellious look.

“When Harry got back to school he had a little swing for five minutes, but he told me the girls in his class love him and his friends think he looks like a rock star.

“He wears it in a men’s bun or ponytail for school, taekwondo, judo, swimming and beavers.

“He’s a typical guy and I’m glad he has the confidence to wear his hair the way he wants.”

Kelly says, “Statham has the longest hair of any of the kids in her school. He is setting the trend and loves the confidence he gives him.

“When he was five we cut his hair short like his father and brothers and he hated it.

“After that he refused to go near a barber or hairdresser.

“Statham was the shyest of my kids, but since he grew his hair he’s been super confident.

“He says it makes him special and he doesn’t care if people call him a girl or make fun of him.

“Aquaman actor Jason Momoa is a huge inspiration to him.

“Statham has more hair ties and rubber bands than her sister.

“He wants to be a gamer and YouTuber when he grows up and says his long hair ‘will help me stand out.’
