Oh, my gosh! It’s finally mine turn to reveal my leading man obsession. It’s really not a secret. I fancy a man with long, beautiful hair. Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen to quote the Cowsills (Remember that old tune? Listen here for a blast from the past) It probably all started with this guy. I was addicted to Highlander because of Adrian Paul’s long, flowing dark locks. Always neatly tied back so it wouldn’t get in the way of his excellent sword play.
I’m going to confess that research for this project wasn’t a hardship. I know my favorites and just went straight to them on Pinterest or Photobucket. But let me start with this man, because I don’t know his name, but he caught my eye for a number of reasons.
Done drooling over him? How about Josh Holloway (the inspiration for one of my main characters. Although I don’t know if it’s the hair or dimples in his case. Or the playful spark in his eyes. But since this is about hair, we’ll stick with that.
With Chris Hemsworth, I don’t think it matters if his hair is up or down, either way works for me. How about you?
And who didn’t fall a little (or a lot) in love with Brad Pitt in Legends Of The Falls? There’s that streaming, flaxen thing.
How about Brock O’Hurn? He rocks the man-bun like nobody’s business. I love the way his hair frames that strong jaw and muscular shoulders (and, I’ll admit I’m swooning a little over the bulging bicep).
I’m going to leave you with one of my personal favorites, Colin Farrell. Don’t you just want to run your fingers through that deep brown hair? I bet it is as soft as silk.
So that’s it. I dig a guy with a long hair. Don’t get me wrong, I love a short-haired hero too (yeah, even a guy with a military high and tight). But a guy with hair he can put into a pony tail. Yeah- that’s for me. How about you?
