In my teens I had flat-top with long sides for a while. Called a "Detroit"
in my neighborhood. That was my rat period. Old Spice butch wax kept
it in place. If anyone had run me over, it would be like getting a free
lube. Then I switched to hair just long enough to comb. Called
a "Princeton". That was my colleg' phase. Wash-and-wear.

These days my hairstyle could be described as parted in the middle.
With a very wide part.

Good topic. I used some gop that I haven't seen mentioned here. It was a white paste that came in a bottle, called School. No lie. I guess the idea was that it schooled your hair, and it did. Plastered it down entirely.

Quit doing it in high school, just went au naturel. It was the '60s....

I have to go back to my high school days in the early 40's. If any of you can remember that was the days of the pompador. Inorder to keep my very straight hair in place I remember using vaseline hair tonic. You combed your hair and got a lube job at the same time.

I hardly know what 'hair' means.

But what is a 'comb'?

Yup...but they looked quite a bit classier than those sported by Russian peasants!

Burley kids with crewcuts used to intimidate me. It had nothing to do with any actions on their part. I needed no reason.

There were days when I could not go to school because my hair was not perfect. And now I could care less about perfect just wash and go most of the time.

I cut my hair so short it defies combing.

About a kid in my old neighborhood:

"When he goes to the barber, he says
a little off the top and change the oil."
