First off, this is an observation, not an opinion, I dont care how you look, or what age. And I'm 42, once I was 23, but not any more. It catches up with you, faster than you'd like. My theory is... When your youngish - 20's - you think your hair and clothes somehow identify who and what you are, young kids want to look "different" so they wear outlandish stuff, get tatoo's n piercings etc, and by doing so they all end up looking the same. Older dudes (40+) wear slacks, nice shirts, have conservitive haircuts etc, and by doing so they all look the same. So does your clothes and hair relegate you to a "stereotype". Everyone was young once, everyone gets old, it's happening right now, we are all aging. You're two minutes older now than you were two minutes ago. It cant be stopped . Do you want to age gracefully or hang onto your youth at any cost? Again, you are what you are, just want opinions, not arguments or backlash.
