When I was living in Vegas I had to cut my hair short (stupid horrible story). Since then, nearly 5 years later it is long again. Long as in nearly to my bra strap. I love having long hair.

I never understood those who would say that long hair takes more maintenance. What? It's easy. You just pull it back.

Short hair takes WAY more maintenance what with the curling, pinning, styling...

What do you have/like?


Plus/bonus question: I'm graying, do you think I should dye? I can't really dye because it gives me hives so maybe the henna solution?

My asshole hair is longer than the hair on my head. I like to keep it styled.

Oh how you are mistaken. I have my head sheared to #1. I look the same as when I went to sleep the night before. No muss, no fuss nor products. My haircut is $7, 10 with tip!

My hair's pretty long and way out of control. I need to get a cut very soon.

I like mine long because I can wear it in many styles and it makes me feel more fem. I love my hair and I think it's my best feature.
I've had all lengths from pixi cuts to bobs to layered long. The latter works best for me.
Unless it's super short like a pixi, I feel it is more high maintenance.
I feel henna will be a waste of time and money. If you want to be consistant with keeping the grey covered I would go full color. It's best to do it now before people notice the grey. That way they'll never notice you color.

Hi Bider,

Question about the hair dying. Did you have an alergic reaction at a professional salon or with a do it at home kit? And please understand I am not bashing the do-it at home kit stuff, I am just wanting some clarification.

And to chime in on the length question, I think when it comes to your mane, whatever blows your skirt.

I have naturally curly hair, and I have to wash my hair everyday because I wake up looking like Buckwheat and a brillo pad had a baby. I have recently discovered that long hair drives me crazy against my neck. By the end of the day I am putting up, so what is the point of having long hair if it is not cascading down your back.

My hair is about as long as Molly Ringwald's, from the Breakfast Club and that is about what I can handle these days.

Footnote: I am attempting to grow my hair to about shoulder length for my wedding, but if I get annoyed the scissors and I have a date in the near future.

There are just some things one should not google, but I digress.

I never really did anything to my hair when it was long. Washed it every few days and ran my fingers through it a few times while it was wet. Done.

I get it buzzed to a #5 now and it's the same for maintenance, except I can't run my fingers through it.

Land sakes alive, the steak's alive.

Every few years I forget that I hate my hair short, and I cut it. I did that last July and I HATED it. Not short short, but too short. I haven't cut it since and it's at an overall length that I like, however it still has some layers that are shorter than I'd like, so another couple months till I cut anything.

I don't prefer longer or shorter on women, it's all what makes them feel good.

I'm starting to go grey. Every time I wash my hands and look up in the mirror there seems to be more. I've decided not to try to cover it and just own it.

I can't picture you with long hair. I've only dated one dude that had it, about 100 years ago, and he had like 400 bootleg tapes (yes, tapes) of the Grateful Dead. I can't explain any of this, even now. I blame ganja.

Oh, yeah, the hair. I thought I liked it at first. Turns out, I hated it.

I wear mine long and wavy.

I have wigs that go from pixie to shoulder length to mid-back, stick straight to curly.

I wear the short one(s) when I'm doing stuff where hair flying around would be a pain in the ass (I can't put wigs in a ponytail). I find that the super-long ones look nice but bother me http://www.wigs.md/pages/wigs_amore_brittany_2538.shtml), so I basically stick with a wavy shoulder-length one http://www.gobunnys.com/ecommerce/a-plu ... faa5bsvvh7) most days. It's closest to my bio hair (aside from the colour - it's too dark) and it's what I feel the most comfortable with right now.

My second favourite is this bob that I have http://www.wigs.md/pages/wigs_amore_codi_2543.shtml) but I had been wearing it for about two years with no change and I got bored.
