He's currently growing his hair and part of his beard out, to go with a viking look (and it will suit him well) so i'm not about to ask him to shave his beard, but something needs to be done with it. It isn't a full beard; he shaves his cheeks and under chin, so it limits the style even more I think. I'm hoping we can get his mane cut and it will work alright with a ribbon tied in back and the rest arranged to either hang parted or greased back to give it a more finished look.
Does any one have any suggestions on this?
This is his typical look atm:
Edit: Sorry I didn't make this clear before, he agreed to dress up with me, and it's the first time he's grown his hair out like this, so we haven't gone to get it even trimmed yet in over a year. I had seen some pictures that he had agreed to dress up in, and the guys all had short hair, and any other picture I was looking atm was the white powdered wig style. Curls in the beard! I didn't think of that. Now to get them to not look retarded :3 Thanks everyone for their input! Now I get to see him in something other than a t-shirt and jeans XD
