Have short hair? Why do you like it that way? I like mine shorter because for one its easier. And two I find it more trendy!And easy to style. I like to get it highlighted. I feel like its the best for my facial structure, so how about you? Why do you keep your shorter?

Actually, it isn't my choice to keep my hair short. My hair has been short since I got a relaxer in the sixth grade that took my hair out from being too strong. It did start growing back pretty nicely a few year ago, but then I got it cut as a symbol of being rid of my children's father. I really need to start going to a hairdresser on a regular basis, so that my hair can be taken care of properly, and finally grow back. I don't want my hair to be as long as it was before, which was to the middle of my back, but I would like to have shoulder length again.

thats a interesting concept, can you explain in more detail about cutting your hair to rid yourself of your father? If its not a problem?

It was my children's father. I guess it was just symbolic. He had already left I and my children's life. I just did it to symbolize starting anew. It wasn't much of a cut, but it was a lot for me because I was just then able to put it in a small ponytail. But I wanted to start anew, so I got a cute cut.

As you know I haven't had short hair in a very long time. For me it is too much upkeep getting it cut every 4-6 weeks as well as costly. I do good to have my hair cut every 4-6 months. Though it is currently a little shorter than I usually wear it. By the way, if I saw you in longer hair now, I don't know what I would think since you have wore your hair shorter for a long time now.

hey mom thanks for your response! I was thinking about what I would think about myself with longer hair , and I really dont think it would fit me very well. I think I would look a lot younger.I'm happy with my hair. And I more than likely probally wont have long hair again.

I have very long hair.. One time in sixth grade, I would sit on my hair. It is now about 22 inches long now, or maybe 24 inches. I do agree, having short hair is very easy to style. There are many times that I wish I could have shorter hair. But the truth is, I hate to cut it.. I can hardly fix my own hair. I do know that there are girls that can fix their own hair. I am just not one of them..

I understand cream! When I did have long hair most of the time I just threw it up in a ponytail!

I have short hair now. I used to work in a factory and there was no air conditioning in there. I have jet black hair and it was so hot so I got my hair cut off short. I no longer work their but I keep my hair trimmed myself now because I have not found anyone who can cut my hair the way I like it. My hair is alot cooler now and easier to take care of too. I have never put anything on my hair other than shampoo, conditioner and hairspray or mouse every now and then. I am not sure if highlights would look good on black hair or not.

My hair is about shoulder length right now. I like to keep it back in a ponytail most of the time. I cannot stand having my hair on my face or touching my ears. I would cut it shorter if I thought it would look decent on me.

I can only have long hair fir easy style. Short hair is not easy to style with my kind of hair. I used to cut my hair and than wait to grow so many times. People don't like me with short hair.
