    Absolutely.

    I saw how long my hair was getting in a video lecture the other day, and it thrilled me. Long hair is preferable on everyone I say, provided they keep it clean.

    I have had short hair for over 25 years since I was born except that small period when I was a toddler and my parents grew my hair a bit long cause it was cute. Then the stigma of the male happened and it got all cut off and a got little boys hair cut and that's how it stayed...

    Love My Hair

    I Love my Long hair. I don't think that I ever remember it being short! I think I would rather die than to cut my hair short~ I just would not look good with short hair! I only remember cutting my hair once, other than Just to cut off the dead ends!

    There's A Reason...

    When I was younger, my mom forced me to keep my hair short. I had absolutely zero say in the matter and it made me mad. After she died I decided that I would never, EVER, cut my hair shorter than my shoulders. She always made me get bob cuts or where it was cut just under my chin...

    After Years Of Bad Perms...

    My mom had only brothers, so she had no idea what to do with a little girl's hair.  Thus, I wore my hair short and straight until sixth grade, when I decided I'd like curly hair, and my mom proposed I start getting permanents.So after that came ten years of mostly bad perms and...

    I Like It Long

    I have long hair. My niece likes to comb it sometimes and puts bowrettes and ponytails in it. Of course it looks silly, but I tell her how pretty it is. She beams.:)

    Ouch!

    I have always had long hair, and always yelled when my mother brushed it to get the tangles out.  I still yell every morning when I have a de-tangling session, I wish someone would invent a painless way of getting these knots out of my curly mop!

    You Could Say That I've Grown Attached To It...

    I used to keep it stubby short, easy to manage (never a bad hair day) and quick to wash & dry. But anyway I let it grow out once, as a part of a student tradition which also involved radically cutting it during a final ceremony after the bulk of responsibilities that goes with it...

    I  Love My Long Hair, ...

    I  love my long hair, it's down to the middle of my back currently but it's growing out, at one point I had it all the way down to my butt, but I  had to get it cut and trimmed up so that it would be ruley again.

    Scary Haircut

    I like my hair long. Obviously. But, when it got to my knees, it became hard to deal with. I felt like I was spending a fortune in shampoo. So, after five years with no haircut at all, I finally did it. I cut over a foot off, and sent it to Locks of Love, a charity organization...
