Those are some typical hair styles, best I can find at the moment. there's male, female and child photographs, but look for the ones that have m6-m9 near the end of the title.

anyway, apart from having some cool stuff I haven't the coin to purchase at the present, they have a little bit of research.

hmm, I tend to just wear mine in a long plait. I did used to have a really severe undercut, but I've let that grow out somewhat, to hide the big scar on my forehead, from some brain tinkering that had to be done.

I think you can dress your hair pretty much how you want to and still rock Steampunk.  Google image searches will find you pics of steampunks male and female with everything from traditional victorian hairstyles (yes, with the grease and pomades and all) to dreadlocks (real AND fake), mohawks, shaved heads, the 'mad scientist mess', etc.  A lot of steampunk dudes seem to just wear their hair long.

I concur!

It is the attitude behind the hair that is important.

I'm doing fine with the old ponytail, which is great if you can be bothered to grow it. Once you're there, it's great. When it's longish, you just look like James May from Top Gear.

I'd be interested to see a picture of the plait, because that's what I'm planning when my hair gets really long.

I wear my hair in a pompadour style most of the time as is and it works well for whatever character idea I'm working with. Slick it back with some grease for a more elegant look or spike it up psychobilly style for a grittier corsair feel. Throw in some color or a bandanna and you are set.

After I posted I was wondering what products does everyone use for their hair to get what effect you want? I was using Murray's pomade and beeswax but they get everywhere, stain everything and will not come outand the beezwax has a smell that make me sick sometimes. Recently I have found that the pomade made by axe is surprisingly good especially for spiking or getting my hair straight up but its a bit on the expensive side so I use got to be glue for everyday goodness.

Fashionable mens' hairstyles haven't changed quite as violently as other forms of fashion. Men used to tend to their facial hair more often than not, but the actual hair on top of the head was usually just worn a little more full than usual for an everyman today. The real difference you're going to find is in the product.

Victorian and Edwardian men didn't style their hair with gel. A variety of oils and waxes were used instead. A much stronger hold than any cheap gel and will keep your hair in place all day without a problem, but very greasy compared to what's seen nowadays and would probably require washing out with a strong shampoo each night before going to bed.

A more modern pomade should be able to do the trick with a bit less oily feel. American Crew makes a good pomade, but it's rather expensive and will probably still require you to clean it out each night. If cost is a factor, try something more old school like Brylcreem.

I have my hair up in a ponytail. Last time someone measured it it was in excess of a foot long.

Must admit, I'm far too busy inventing things and creating gadgets to worry about my hair. As long as it's clean, I tuck it underneath my goggles or a top hat if it's a special occasion...

I did get time to visit the barber ONCE in my lifetime so far.

They said, "What do you want us to do?"
I replied, "That's your job, not mine. Do what you do."

The result was unusual, but I do not recommend the experience.

Also, I can now no longer sit on my hair, which is very disappointing.

I've said it before somewhere else, but check out these films for more ideas:

HBO's Deadwood

Topsy Turvy

The Road to Wellville.

All have excellent examples of victorian coiffure.
