Short or Long Hair on Girls

What is your preference, either for yourself or for others.

I have long hair, love it, but hate the maintenance. I have always envied shorter styles, but I guess I'm attached to my long locks.

hmmm i just cut off my really long hair. it was the same love/hate relationship, i loved how it looked but hated, the maintenance, the what seemed like gallons of product i used, and how long it took to untangle it everyday with countless bottles of detangler after my shower. i'm loving my short hair, i cut 14 inches off and i absolutely love it! my natural curl is able to be bouncy instead of stretched out and limp. and it's sooooooo easy! i'm wondering now if i should go a bit shorter?

I love short hair!!! I have long hair but thats cause the hubby loves it. I have often wondered if he had to manage it if he would love it so much. We did make an agreement that when I lose 20 more pounds I get to cut it! I am so pumped about it. I plan to donate my hair to Locks of Love.

I think it depends on your age. Few women can wear short hair beautifully (Halle Barry comes to mind) Older gals need to take into account that it's going to make the look more their age. If it's short, it's GOTTA be stylish. Every man I've ever asked think long hair looks best on ALL women, no matter their age.

I love my short hair but sometimes wish I could wear it longer. I have very fine, thin hair and it just doesn't grow much past my shoulders. So a bob it is!

I I think most older women should wear their hair short. I've noticed most older women with long hair wear very dated styles and it looks terrible! I'm sure there are exceptions to every rule though!

I have a very, very short pixie cut. It seems to work on me because I'm really feminine in every other aspect of how I look. Even with 1" spiked hair, I'm 100% girly girl. You do need a lot of confidence, though. No hiding!

Long hair:I did that for a long time, too, but no more. It's too safe: by definition long hair means you've got the exact same style year after year. I like to keep things interesting.

As for 'what guys like', I've found that I've been able to change a few people's minds about what constitutes sexy hair. Besides, if some guy turns me down because of my pixie cut, that's not the kind of closed-minded boy I want anyway! :)

I have long hair and I love it. I hate girls with short hair, it always looks bad. Long hair is beautiful, sexy, feminine, and hot. I think women cut their hair shorter as they age because of laziness or lack of time. To me, long hair represents youth and vitality.

I always had long hair until I chopped it thinking that it would be easier to take care of... didn't really work that way for me. I felt like I had to always style it for it to look good. I also hated how it looked in the morning. It would lay funny until I showered, didn't make me feel naturally sexy.

6:26...long hair suits most people, but only those with superior bone structure and good features can pull off a short cut well. Piece of advice: try to be more subtle with your jealousy in less anonymous contexts than this forum.
