Much ado about pubic trimming.

When I see a woman with a pixie or bob cut, I think about how sad it is that she's playing for the wrong team.
 
2014-05-01 06:47:50 AM  
It's not exactly against the crowd if it's the "in" thing, now is it?

I feel no sisterhood with another woman over hair.

My daughter is so trendy... or did she just not brush her hair enough and was forced to get a short bob.?.


You decide.

It's taken me 15 years to get my wife to let her hair grow out - she better not read this and chop it again.  Attention ladies - if you look like Karlie Kloss, by all means, draw attention to your face.  Otherwise, long hair is hotter.

I will admit, I liked that haircut on Emma Watson.

When Ann Heppermann booked an appointment with Ms. Shea to have her hair cut short a couple of months ago, she immediately turned to Google's image search for inspiration. "I thought, 'I'm 39, I shouldn't be looking at pictures of Jennifer Lawrence,' " said Ms. Heppermann, a radio producer in Greenpoint.

Instead, she decided to look at pictures of ...

Yea, I was going to say, that little grin the other short haired girl was giving her, was not the grin of, "oh look, we both have short hair"...it's more like, "oh look, we both like girls" if you know what I mean,and I think you do.

When I cut my hair short, people sometimes call me "sir".

/girls like it

Well, that's different. If I met a woman with a beard like mine, I bet we'd have some real bonding moments.

My face is too asymmetrical to pull something like that off.  Otherwise I might have tried it just for convenience.  I wish I looked like Halle Berry.  LOL

Just because the author's husband/wife doesn't like her short haircut does not mean she's doing something against the crowd to get it done. Uberdeity doesn't like my hair short either, but you don't see me being all "girl power! I'm fighting the man, takin' back my rib, and bein' independent. Join me my sisters!" when I get it cut. It's more like a "I think I look nice. My hair has fewer split ends. And, it's easier to manage and style." Who knew that as a working mother, I don't have time to spend the hours it takes using a soft brush root to end and brushing in conditioners to keep my long hair nice.

No seriously. I met a woman once with beautiful hair so long it could trail the ground. No splits, no frizzes. I asked her how she managed it. Hours of soft brushing and special conditioners.

I love how half the comments in this thread are going to be of the "OMG your so vain, care about something that really matters, why would you think so much about hair" variety, while the other half are of the "LOL lesbian/you look like a man/now we can see your ugly face" variety.

Short hair on women goes against Bible and natural order of things "Does not nature itself teach you that if a man wears long hair it is a disgrace for him, but if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering" 1 Corinthians 11:3-15

Meh. If out makes you happy, whatever. But, though it's unlikely that you'll care, don't expect me to find it attractive.
 
2014-05-01 07:05:33 AM  
Meh,

My wifes hair was halfway down her back.  A month ago she shaved it all off to help make a wig for her mother who is going through chemo.

/she loves the fact that showers only take 5 mins now
//she is growing it back however

In our culture, you have to have the right head-to-neck ratio to pull off a pixie cut, or even a bob to a lesser extent. Long neck and a smaller, oval shaped face, it can look damn sexy. Think Audrey Hepburn. Also helps if the rest of you is on the thin side, but not required.

If you have a particularly round head, wide cheeks, and/or a short neck, and are short and round yourself, the only favor you are doing yourself is being cooler in the summer and saving on shampoo.

/from an amateur portrait photographer point of view anyway

It's likely social conditioning, but my social conditioning tells me, women that have hair shorter than the mid-neck region is less attractive.

My wife started getting clipper cuts a couple of months ago. Number 1 setting on the clippers. Pretty much the same as a buzz cut, actually.

The men where she works kind of tease her and call her "that bald woman" but the other women admire her bravery, as well as the comfort level. (It must be a real biatch wearing your hair long in a hot, tropical climate.)

When I had long hair and lived in a hot climate I would twist it into a highknot when it was wet and it kept me cool; great under a hat as well.

Shorter than shoulder-length hair means one of six things:

* Lesbian
* Young child that won't stop grabbing and pulling and/or trying to eat hair
* Middle-aged woman who no longer cares what the opposite sex thinks
* Dramatic haircut / hair coloring / hair bleaching / playing with matches accident
* Serial killer
* Two or more of the above

I prefer her with long hair, but it's her hair, not mine. She finds longer hair very uncomfortable. And it's nice not having long, dark hairs getting all over the place.

While I'd hit it, they're both hotter with longer hair

Hey - if women want to make themselves ugly I guess that is their problem.

I can't think of a single woman who was hotter with short hair than long hair.  It almost always makes them less attractive.

Short hair is for older women who just don't want the maintenance anymore and have given up.

Yeah, there is no otherwise.  Long hair is hotter, no exceptions.

Almost universally women look better with long hair. Even the super cute little women with cute little hair cuts would probably look better with longer hair. Only a very select group of women can pull off short hair.

Basically its for lazy women and women who have given up on looking good and the occasional "trying to be bold but really just hurting their own beauty" trendoids.

Kate gosselin popularized her style and tons of women tried it. Then she grew her hair out and she was ten times hotter.
 
2014-05-01 07:33:16 AM  
The problem is that short hair looks good on about 2% of women!and these aren't the 2% that usually get it.
