    I Have Short Hair and It Has Nothing to Do With Sex.....

    I just read a posting from a member claiming that the reasons a husband doesn't want to have sex with his wife is because of short hair.  There were several other reasons she listed, not all of them I agreed with, but I have never felt my short hair was a detriment to...

    Little Choice!

    Obviously I am bald....but that doesn't seem to stop other bald guys growing ponytails. Noooooooooooo! it's wrong, and you know it, it's not manly or hot or sexy, it just looks silly and most women and other guys are secretly laughing behind your back. Matt or gloss. that's your...

    I know my hair is not

    that difficult to cut/style. But could you at least take a little bit more time to cut my hair with respect. No need to be so rough. You make my head feel like a widget to produced at maximum efficiency.

    I Have Short Hair.

    It is a personal choice. I honestly feel there are more important things to worry about than haircare. I know most cultures identify a womans beauty by her hair but you know what im fed up with the rules they place on my sex. No it does not mean i am a lesbian or a tomboy... it...

    I have neck-length hair.

    Not terribly short but not long either. I never really liked having my hair really long. Mainly because I always hated taking care of it with how thick it is. My mom would usually get mad at me for having my hair all messy and not properly grooming it. One day she told me that...

    One of the benefits of being me,

    is that my hair grows fairly quickly. A lot of guys my age are starting to lose theirs! Consequently. I have to get it cut. Now. I don't have the first clue when it comes to style. Not for clothes,shoes even hair! So I tend to have my hair cut really short two or three times a...

    Actually, I'm bald. So I just shave off what

    hair I have left on my head to keep my scalp looking even... One of the things I love about having a girlfriend is that she gives me haircuts. I used to cut my own hair with clippers and I had to feel around my head to make sure I didn't miss any spots... sometimes I did...

    I always loved having long hair,

    until I was about 13, when I realised that it was a /lot/ of work to look after. Seriously, I have better things to do than spend like half an hour every morning looking after my locks. School didn't like us having short hair (ladies are as ladies do, or something), so I had to...

    I read about a lot of people under this category

    who love having short hair, it's by choice, they do it for good cause, or they just simply appreciate staying away from the social norm of having long hair. I have short hair and I hate it. I cut it back when I was in the 7th grade on a whim, I didn't like it very much from...

    Why I Have Short Hair

    My hair is short for a girl but I like it this way, it wasn't always short though. In grade 6 I use to have hair that was at my thighs and I loved it to bits, but I was picked on a lot and people use to pull my hair and threaten to cut it. At the same time my friend got cancer...

    Just Cut!

    I had long hair for about 5 years and just cut it all off. I like to change. I feel like Im renewing myself or starting fresh. To be honest, not sure what hair looks best or I like best but I just change every now and then.

    Woo, Low Maintenance!

    Cutting my hair short was probably one of the best things I ever did. It was a fair shock at the time, though. Before it was cut, my hair was almost down to my waist. It was one of those impulse decisions - the hairdresser asked what I wanted, and I thought 'what the hell'. So...

    Sick of the Dead Ends and the Hassle!

    Today I cut my hair and I have bangs now (again) and I cut my hair right above my shoulders. It looks like Courtney Love's in this pic- I love it! I'm going to donate the rest of my hair to Locks of Love. My hair used to be right above my ***...Not anymore!

    I used to have really long hair

    that went down to my butt, but then this past summer I just decided to chop it all off. 12 inches. I donated what was cut to Locks of Love, and now I style it up. Come to think of it... I should really update my profile picture... eh I'll get to it eventually.

    I recently cut my hair short

    and I really love it. I'm even thinking of pixie cuts. I don't know yet, but I'm kind of tempted lol. I feel like short suits me better. Specially since my hair is so fine, when it was really long , somedays it just looked really blah. Haha, so yeah, I don't regret my decision.

    It becomes a problem

    when you have to wait a month for a haircut, I have a faux hawk, and due to it being longer than usual, when it's flat it down right looks like a shorter version of a mushroom cut, when it's up, it's higher than my hopes. But I will never regret cutting my hair this short, I had...

    I Like My Hair Very Short

    In May, I completely shaved my head. It grew back but I cut it again. I just like wearing my hair short. I once had hair that was over my ears and I hated it because it distracted me. My hair is golden blonde and people tell me it's nice and soft but I still like keeping it...
