I should probably just buzz it all off right?

MetaFilter, in all my years I've never managed to figure out what the hell to do with my hair. Help please?

So here's the deal: I'm straight man a couple of years shy of thirty and I'm just trying to make the most of what god gave me. My hair is frizzy and curly and stubborn as a mule and I haven't the foggiest what to do with it. Growing up it was straight up Kramer hair, but since 2006 I've been just smushing it down and to the side after a shower and that's about it. I'll post a few reference photos here to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.
If you guys could let me know what I could do with this mop that would be flattering and easy that would be awesome. Long? Short? Buzzed? I'm up for anything. I'm not opposed to putting some effort into it, but if you want to recommend something that requires product or techniques I'm probably going to need a youtube video to figure it out. Also, if it matters what kind of shampoo/conditioner would you recommend, and how frequent should I be washing it? Daily seems to be inducing more frizz.
Also, as long as I'm posting pictures feel free to give whatever advice you might have about my general appearance. Glasses? I wear them most of the time but I've been doing contacts more often. Facial hair? It looks ok stubbley, but is real patchy looking on the cheeks if it gets longer.
Thanks for supporting my vanity. Photos in profile
