Dave's hair poll

Dave is a hair-changer. He gets sick of the same hairdo all the time and likes to switch it up.

He goes from the classic:(yeah, I'll be in trouble for posting that one :)

To the long locks:
To the middle-ground:
To the shaved head:
Which gradually fades into the "tennis ball" do:
Oh and we can't leave out the middle-part "wings" he had when we got married:
Right now he's ready for a change.

And I keep joking with him that he shouldn't do it.

Of course, I think he's handsome no matter what, and hey, when you still have that much hair you should switch it up whenever you can.

But we thought it'd be fun to see what others think...to see if they agree with me or him on his next step.

Should he go long?

or shorter:
or super short:
Hmmmmmm.

What do you think?

p.s. I think this is a funny post, but hey, gotta mix it up with a little fluff right? You never know, maybe I'll do a poll on whether I should get bangs next...

  1. I like his hair short but not super short!

  2. I agree with Nichole. I liked the "shorter" look, but I am never a fan of buzzed heads : )

  3. He is lucky to have such great hair either way...but I am always appreciating shorter.

  4. I would go with the "shorter" hair style! Great to keep up with your sweet family!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I would go with the "shorter" but that is just my preppy taste. haha. buzz cut for summer and I don't like long locks ever. ha.

  7. Super post. Stuff like this cracks me up.

    My husband has also run the gamut for hair lengths since we've been married (17 yrs) and he has finally decided on a hair style that looks the best (shaved- number 3 all over). He always prided himself on being able to grow the longer style, but honestly, it didn't really look that good.

    I like the short style the best. It looks the most masculine to me (not sure if that is what he's aiming for, but that is what I like best). The only problem with it is upkeep. It must be shorn every couple of weeks though in order to avoid the tennis ball head. So, maybe you can keep some clippers near by and just give it a quick once-over whenever it starts to look too puffy.

    Good luck!

  11. I like the medium short shot the best. I actually really like the super short one too, but maybe more for the hot summertime.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm so glad to see that everyone else so far has said short, but not super short. I was wondering if I would be the only one to say that. It looks like ShOrT is in!

  13. Shorter, but not SUPER short.. Stumbled upon your blog and LOVE IT! After reading older posts I realize that your parents are the authors the Eyres. I remember seeing your family on the Oprah show way back in the 90's and was smitten with the love you all had for each other. Upon seeing that show I fell in love with the name Jonah and tucked that name away for my future child's name. I have a 13 year old son that I proudly named Jonah and when people ask how I decided upon his name I tell them that it was all because of this wonderful family that I had the privilege of seeing on TV and wished to have the same type of openness, and loving relationship with my children as those folks did. What a wonderful family you are blessed to have :-) Many blessings to you and yours in 2012!

  14. I notice a Samsonesque trend in these pictures... The shorter hair tends to even itself out with additional facial hair. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Denny's says: The middle-part "wings" is a timeless look, the tennis ball style is sexy in an adolescent way, the long-locks make me feel badly about my own receding hairline-final answer: middle ground.

    Does all this make me sound a little gay...Dang he is a good looking man!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Shorter. Although I just talked my man into sticking with the buzz. It's cheapest and easiest to maintain.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like the last picture the best - pretty short is great !

    ReplyDelete
  18. Definitely "shorter". I think the inbetween short and long looks the best

    ReplyDelete
  19. Definitely the in between short.

    ReplyDelete
  20. shorter. but not super short.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I vote for shorter but on the flip side, I like when LDS men have long hair. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm with the masses: short, but not buzzed.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Everyone has summed it up: shorter, but not super short!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. they are all good looks ~ I think the shaved head look is best, but what do I know? You don't even know me!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm with everyone else....shorter, but not super short.

    And I have to add, that Dave has some great hair! Not many guys have nice hair like that!

    ReplyDelete
  26. i like long when he has the goatee (no clue on spelling??) and super short with no goatee. and i like just the short. ha. did you think we'd be so opinionated on your husband's hair?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yep, shorter. My favorite part of this post was seeing the kids when they were tiny - so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Definitely looks fabulous "Shorter" !

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like the Short one (not buzzed).

    I don't have a problem with long hair on guys, but he has a very nice bone structure, with is more accentuated with the short hair.

    I only like the buzzed look on guys who are losing their hair. He has great hair!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lucky him to have SO MUCH HAIR!! I vote for shorter (the pic w the white/blue plaid shirt on). The longer look and the super short look are both a little 'young' looking for him - they work well for the 20's and early 30's (which he probably was in those pics)

    I love your blog and have seen you and your Mom at TOFW - keep it up!

    ReplyDelete
  31. i just love that you got so many great opinions on this!I say wings!

    ReplyDelete
  32. ok i am in the minority, but i liked it super short ( but needs to keep it super short, and not tennis ball ahhaha), or short, i actualy really like it longer too, he really does have great hair!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I say shorter, but not super short!

    ReplyDelete
  34. short but not super short! My husband HATES going to get his hair cut. Good thing we go to BYU where he has to get it cut every once in a while.

    Now you should tell us what style you like best and what style Dave likes!

    ReplyDelete
  35. definitely not long.. go super short

    ReplyDelete
  36. short, not the super short one, although that looks good too

    ReplyDelete
  37. the pic when he is in the plaid shirt holding the water bottle! that length is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  38. my husband would die if I did this! ha ha my answer is buzzed or short!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Short :) this is funny! I love the long though.

    ReplyDelete
  40. short but not buzzed is my vote! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. definitely the short. (not super short)

    ReplyDelete
  42. My vote is the "shorter" look, not the super short.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I like the "shorter" do...not super short though....unfortunately with the short hairstyle he'll have to get it cut more often...hopefully he doesn't mind :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. definitely short but not too short. happy day x

    ReplyDelete
  45. I am a fan of the "shorter" look.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ha! That man on the end in the fourth picture down might not forgive you either :) But he loved the walk down memory lane.

    Newel's growing his hair long right now too — like when they were kids at Camelot. Are we mid-life crisis-ing?

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm with the masses too! - definitely "shorter".

    ReplyDelete
  48. Shorter! (but not too short) Best picture is Dave in the plaid shirt with short-sleeves. But no facial hair! Fun!

    ReplyDelete
  49. So funny. Is he gonna kill you for this? I'm just jealous he still has hair!

    And I like the short too. Miss seeing you on Sudays too.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think the "shorter" (or "classic" look) is definitely the most flattering on him!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I vote for shorter, but not super short (:

    ReplyDelete
  52. I like the shorter hair. And bring back the goatee! Love the goatee.

    ReplyDelete
  53. The shorter classic cut looks great. Fun to see all the changes over the years! :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. i prefer the shorter look on him, and i normally am against "shaved" looks, but it works on dave.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yup short but not super short! The long hair reminds me of the 90's like Jesse's in full house :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I vote "shorter" like it is in the picture with the blue plaid shirt and green blurry background. Sounds like I'm not the only one who thinks this! Then save the shaved head for summer when it's super hot out.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I am with the majority: Medium short! That is what I like best on my husband as well. And those pics of the kids this young are soooo cute! I love the look on baby Claires face smiling at her daddy!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Did you know that after reading all the comments, the words short and shorter don't even look like real words any more?

    I like the short w/o facial hair and shortest w/goatee styles the best.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I vote for "middle-ground." Max looks a lot like him when he has the longer hair.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Does Dave have any single friends?

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'd def go for the 'shorter' look. (Not short).

    ReplyDelete
  62. I can't believe how many comments there are on this post. :) But I vote for short but not super short!

    ReplyDelete
  63. He does have great hair for a guy and I am sure many are envious. I think shorter.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I say short but not the super short.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I think I am the only one who thinks super short is the winner! My husband and son both sport the super short buzz, and they are both the most handsome men I know!

    ReplyDelete
  66. If he goes super short he has to grow a beard. NOT LONG. That's my vote.

    P.S. I also vote no to bangs

    ReplyDelete
  67. i think he looks really young with "super short." so if that's what you're going for ...

    ReplyDelete
  68. My vote would be for the "shorter" middle ground. And I assume you'll let us in on what your opinions are later? :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Definitely NOT long. Short but not super short absolutely.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Looks too shaggy with the longer... The best pic of him is the one with the "short" with the green in the background - he looks great with that cut and style- sharp & handsome. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Short but not shorn! He's lucky he can carry different styles!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm with the others on the "shorter" do. :) Your hubby is pretty cute regardless and you both make a beautiful couple!

    ReplyDelete
  73. He's lucky to have such a nice head of hair, so he can pull off lots of different looks. I personally think he would look best with it a little shorter on the sides/back and a little longer on top – kind of like Bradley Cooper. Whatever Dave decides to do, make sure you post pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Long! Let him get it into a pony tail... too many men cut their hair like they're in the military. I wish more men had the moxy to break from the crowd and do something different with their hair. Your husband has great hair, let it grow!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I love the fact that so many people have commented on this...awesome! I wish I had hair as great as his or yours Shawni...love yours too. Whatever makes you both happy!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. "Classic" or "Middle Ground" there is no question. Lots of men his age wish that they had that decision to make :) So I say, run your fingers through it until you can't!

  78. I vote short but not super short. :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. haha...this post kills me. My husband & son have similar hair & now I am starting to think they should switch it up a bit more. I like short or super short the best. I think the longer hair looks like an {I'm using this word loosely!} older guy trying to look like he's in HS. eek. Sorry was that rude? I think he looks better short or even super short.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I am a hairstylist so this post isn't silly to me in the slightest:)

    HE IS SO HANDSOME WITH SHORT HAIR! But not buzzed short. The picture right above the last few buzz cuts, when he's in the short-sleeve button up. That's my favorite hair on him.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love a poll!!
    I have to say that I love the short cut too. Definitely the cut that suits him best...... I hope this vote allows Dave to get that change he is looking for :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. I like the short but not super short look on him.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I personally think Dave looks best in the short (not super short) hairstyle.

    ReplyDelete
  84. This is so funny about all the comments!

    What does Dave want?

    Ps I don't really have a strong opinion either way.
    Just wanted to keep the comments coming!

    ReplyDelete
  85. this is absolutely hysterical. all these comments! i remember all my friends in elementary school swooning over the wings in dave's hair. love you sister. blog about sf already!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. "shorter" for sure! (but not the "super short" :) I think it looks best that way!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I actually like the shaved look!
    he looks GREAT like that! it's the sexiest!
    tara

    ReplyDelete
  88. They all look good but my vote would be long!!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I love the super short look because he can really pull it off...but he looks best with shorter or super short! Fun post today!

    ReplyDelete
  90. i love "shorter" AND "super short"

    ReplyDelete
  91. ok wait...i want to vote again! if he does super short he has to have facial hair too.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I think his hair should be short but not super short.

    ReplyDelete
  93. "shorter" - the Classic look in the first photo

    ReplyDelete
  94. ~ Shorter, like the picture in the blue plaid shirt!

    ReplyDelete
  95. this is hilarious! my vote is long!! not so long that it starts to flip out at the ends, but middlish-long. it all boils down to bragging rights, and how many 40 (isn't that how old he is?) year olds can successfully pull off long hair? Yup, I vote long!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I am a fan of the shorter. And by the way...what a cutie!

    ReplyDelete
  97. think he looks great in all of the pics but i like the look of "shorter" where he has a plaid shirt. maybe I am just a middle-of-the-road.....kind of girl.
    love your blog!!

  99. **ps, i think you could really pull off thick bangs... you have great hair and face... ooohh lets see some changes at the Pothier house LOL

    ReplyDelete
  100. For sure the shorter but not buzzed. You husband has similar characteriscts of James Denton (aka Mike Delfino from Desperate Housewives.) He has a manly ruggid look anyhow so the short classic clean cut hair along with the ruggid facial characteristics does any man good. I also think have him grow it out for summer. Then by summer it is a new change and a summer surf look.

    Happy Hair!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Ha! I love that you've done this :) I've got to go with most other people and say short (but not super short) although I don't mind the super short either. I'm not a fan of long hair at all.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Definitely blue-plaid-shirt shorter.

    ReplyDelete
  103. You are too funny....I love this post! I'd have to vote a definite "no" on the long look...definitely shorter looks better, but not buzzed. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  104. Middle ground is by FAR the most handsome (and he's pretty darned handsome!)

    ReplyDelete
  105. Long....for sure....you can always wear it short and when you get older long won't be so renegade.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I'm pretty much dying laughing right now that we all feel so compelled to share our opinions about your husband's hair of all things.

    We're silent stalkers........right up until you ask us our opinion on something. Too funny.

    But they are all dead on. Short, not buzzed is definitely the way to go.

    Poor Dave. He'll never dare shave or grow it out ever again:)

    ReplyDelete
  107. How does Dave feel about having so many pictures of himself in one post? That's more than an entire year probably. He's a good sport. I think he looks best in the middle-ground and shorter looks. I am the same way, changing it up all the time, but I'm a girl. I've actually kept the same hair style for a year and the one before that for a year, which is AMAZING!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. "Shorter" is my fave, but I think it's great that he has such versatility! I wish my husband had such great hair!

    ReplyDelete
  109. I like his hair in the traditional style and short. It's clean and classic :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. I agree with Maria’s post above! (I think I am the only guy commenting on this post. Can’t help it. My other half is a Men’s Stylist/Biz Owner.) The official word from the stylist world is that long hair on men is coming back in...and if you have the Sampson-Zesty head of hair your David is fortunate to have...Grow it Long!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I vote for the shorter look. i think right in between looks best.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Shawni I am cracking up at how many comments you have. Dave is going to LOVE you for this one. (My vote is super short-he looks really young and athletic (a good marathon cut?) like that.

    ReplyDelete
  113. The shorter style. Love that first picture!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Where I live there are more distinct seasons, so I would vote for longer in the winter and shorter in the spring/summer. It looks great either way. You are too cute to post this "fluff" as you call it.

    ReplyDelete
  115. i definitely say shorter as well.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Looks like Harry Hamlin in a few pics...he's handsome in any style, but since he has such great hair, it's a shame to buzz it...personally, id go with short, but full. Either way, he'll look great!!
    ~M

    ReplyDelete
  117. I like the short. He looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  118. short not super short!

    such a fun post!!!!!! I'll have to show my husband

    corrie:)

    ReplyDelete
  119. go for the long...what the heck!

    ReplyDelete
  120. "shorter" looks best on him for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I am obviously late to the "poll" and I know it's closed by now, but I'm laughing with surprise reading all the votes for shorter! What???! I think the longish hair is awesome! Not forever, but why not for a few months? I think we're all VERY conservative in our culture... if you know what I mean. :0 My husband would never grow a goatee, let along let his hair grow longer. But that is some great hair; go for it!
