    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...

    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 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.:)

    After Years Of Bad Perms...

    One reason I like my hair long is

    when being intimate with a partner I love to feel his hand wrapped in my hair. The more we kiss the harder his grip gets. Then he pulls my hair (gently) to expose my neck and kisses me there.

    My hair is about waist length,

    and I'm really happy with it. I couldn't ever grow it before I started using Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner (everyday one), but now it's long and shiny

    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!

    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...

    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!

    I love my hair long! It was down to my butt

    but I cut it so it's now just past the middle of my back. Not sure if I want to grow it more or not. I love when people play with my hair :)

    I have had my hair every color known to man

    (literally). About two years ago I colored it bright pink! But, currently it is auburn. I think that's my favorite, my go to color. I've also had my hair every length imaginable. But, usually when I want to grow it out and it gets to that awkward length, right around shoulder...

    I've had short hair for a long time,

    but since I'm single again I've been trying to grow my hair longer. I'm pretty happy how it goes.

    I tried having my hair short(er) a few years

    ago, and though it was nice in some ways, I prefer it long overall. I mean, short hair is easier to keep clean, doesn't get as knotted, and doesn't need as much maintenance, but for me, long hair is much nicer. Hair is like women's natural accessory - we can tie it up, leave it...

    Up until I was about twenty five years old,

    I was required to be clean shaven, short haircut, and wear suits every day I worked which was about every day. No casual Friday, no jackets, pressed suit every day. Mister Suit, Mister Straight, Mister Conformist. When I became twenty six, I left that whole life and became who...

    Luscious and love it!

    I like longer hair on myself because it gives you way more options to pull it up, clip it, leave it down, straighten it, curl it. I like to change up my look once in a while, but I don't like hair any shorter than at least shoulder length, and it's been longer than that for as...
