    Short Or Not

    I love the Emo/Scene hair. I would/(still do) tease my hair, so that way when it got big, I could hide behind it. It made me feel like no one could see me, or I didnt feel revealed to everyone. My secrets and life fetlt like an open book I wanted to close so no one could read me...

    .

    I used to do this all the time. It wasn't until I cut it all off I realised how much I relied on my hair to do this. I still have my sweeping fringe, side parting and long layers in the hope that most of it stays covered up. But it's not often I do, only when I'm trying to hide...

    I Have No Hair... Yet, You Do...

    I have never had long hair. Never allowed to grow it long... and now that I am older never will. Yet, I can understand why women would hide behind their hair. When you feel low, rejected or have no confidence it's just easier to lower your head and hide your eyes in it. Since...
