DAYS: Why do all the men have the same hairstyle?!

I know, it really doesn't mean anything. And compared to the bigger fish that's currently frying, this realization is more than miniscule. But has anyone ever noticed that all the guys on this show have the same exact hairstyle?

Shorter on the sides, forward and messy a bit on top... do no men in this town have longer hair? Jack Deveraux is the only man who I can think of that had longer hair, with some sort of a part in the middle, and they even tried getting rid of that by giving him the traditional 'Days' cut, too!

James Scott, before he came to Days, had longer hair on AMC. Then, when he gets to Days... snip, snip! He gets the traditional Days 'do, too!

Here's a look at his hair on AMC.

Then there's Shawn Brady. Again, shorter on the sides with the messy/forward style on top. His father, Bo Brady, has the came style... although it appears that they're letting him grow it a little longer lately.

John Black? Er... the late John Black? Ditto that style for him, although it's not quite as messy as the other guys. I much preferred when it had it cut very short, back in the summer of 1997. Hot damn, that was sexy! Alas, here he is with the similar traditional Days cut...

Posted Image

Lucas Roberts? He shares the same style, as well.

Posted Image

Austin had the style. Rex had the style. Colin had the style. The original Shawn had it. Eric Brady had it. I would say 85% of Days male cast over the last ten years has shared this same boring, uninspired hairstyle, and if they don't come on the show with it, by the time they leave they're certainly sporting it. For proof, look no further than Jeremy Horton, who came on the show with Ken Doll hair and is leaving the show with the familiar Salem-men 'do.

I know that in the grand scheme of things, it's really rather unimportant, but it's so visually boring and un-stimulating when all the guys just... look the same. No individual hairstyles, no varying lengths, nothing! The only person that I can think of who's managed to escape the traditional 'do is Will, and he looks like a mop. Pop Shawn doesn't count, because he has no hair to style in the first place. Oh, and I guess Steve has escaped it, as well. Lucky him! And Stefano just wouldn't look right with it, LoL.

And while I'm on the subject of hair...

I've been praying for Alison Sweeney to go back to her natural blonde color for what seems like ages now. She's always had such gorgeous, thick hair, but this platinum blonde is way too light for her, IMO. It drowns out her face because it washes her out so badly.

Anytime I see her in a scene, my attention goes directly to that sharp, platinum blonde hair rather than the scene itself and I'm assuming that's not what the DAYS powers-that-be want, LoL

This shade of blonde is what suits her best, IMO. Not the current Pamela Anderson bimbo blonde color.

I miss these looks on her from when she was younger!

I like these looks on her.

At the time, I hated the strawberry blonde/red look, but looking back on it... I sort of enjoy it!

Here's a shot from her very first episode.

I agree that hairstyles should vary a little. Things otherwise can be too cookie-cutter.

Yeah, a lot of the guys do have a similar hairstyle! Phillip is another one with a different style though.

I agree about Ali's hair. She has really pretty hair, but it is too blonde right now. I like it better when it is more of a golden blonde.

First of all, that photo of James Scott holding a baby... Oh, my ovaries! Whoa. :o

Er, anyway... Posted Image I've never really thought about it too much, but you are correct. The men of Days of Our Lives do have pretty much the same hairstyle. LOL Sheesh. I wonder what's up with that. Lucas's is the worst, IMO; I hate the way it's all combed forward on top like a duck's tail or something. C'mon, Days hairstylists! Variety is the spice of life. At least, Bo, Philip and Shawn, Sr. (LOL) seem to realize this.

I have long been of the opinion that Alison Sweeney should give up the platinum for a warmer, more golden shade of blonde. Her current hair color does not suit her at all. Glad to know you concur, Kenny. ;)

Some of the guys look better IMO with the hairstyle. Max- I hated his hair and it was getting to be annoying always combed over or whatever they did to it.
James Scott- cutting his hair is one thing I have loved since starting Days. Who know I could find that man even more attractive than I did on AMC.
What about Nick, what the hell does his hair look like, damn I love him but we haven't seen him for a while so I forgot. Jay's hair isn't the same as the rest, and I like that about him.

On to Ali, her hair is blinding. I wish someone would realize it and fix it. She is very beautiful and doesn't need that color. Why not get back to basics and go with your natural color because that is not natural.

Words cannot express how much I HATE Ali's platinum blonde coloring in her hair. Frankly, it looks awful, and I hope to God that she gets it colored a darker shade of blonde very soon.

GET EM STEPH!!

Ali's hair looked better that way last summer when she had the bangs but now it looks horrible. I am shocked she has kept it, unless NBC made her. I still remember when she went red in 2001 and she quickly changed back to blonde like after a month.

The guy haircuts are the same but, generally, I found many guys tend to follow haircuts other guys have just because it's the "thing." Maybe all the actors happen to like it. Who knows LOL. That is why I like JKJ's hair because it's refreshingly different but I can't blame the other guys for the way they have theirs. It may be a comfort thing.

Bryan Dattilo used to have different hair, almost like a shorter version of JKJ's but now he seems to like that shaved look.
