Just about everything Jagr was discussed, including the evolution of his hair. “Well, you know,” Jagr said with a smile, “when I had the long hair, I wouldn’t say it was a style, but I wasn’t the only one who had it.  There was a lot of guys, maybe not that long, but a lot of guys wearing long hair, so … now it’s a different style. But it’s going to come back.  Everything is just coming back. Ten years later, you’ll see a lot of guys
