My hair needed cutting really bad, as my sides looked like I was sprouting wings. It sure does look better too. When I was younger, my hair would grow to the middle of my back, but since I have got older, I just don't look good with long hair. I can remember when it was long, and I think back and wonder why I left it grow so long. Having short hair is much easier to take care of, that is for sure.

Nice 'do you have there. My hair has nearly always been long. We have HAIR in my family. My daughter was born with a shag. I am in a position now where I am wondering if I should cut mine shorter. It is now 32 inches long.

Thank you. I think the gal who did it, did a very good job. I go to a place called, Perfect Look, and I have been going there for years. They have always done a good job, and that is why I keep going back.

@TiarasOceanView It really is, and it isn't that far away either. I go about every 8 weeeks or so, as I can't stand it any longer, as it gets shaggy.

Yes, she certaainly did. I could never do it myself, that is for sure, and I would try to either. I go to the same place everytime I need to get it cut. They know me there and know how I like it cut so I know I won't have any prolem without it being done right.

That is to funny. My hair looked like I could just fly away with the wings; It looked awful, and I got tired of looking at it, so i decided I would get it cut. It will grow out fast again, as it always does.

@1hopefulman My ex husband wears a hat all the time too, and he has less hair that you do. He does that because he has a bald spot on top and if he doesn't, the sun will hit it and he will get burnt. So, it isn't unsual for men to wear hats to protect their hair or their scap.

It certainly is, and I don't have to worry about pulling my hair when I lean back in the chair, o I don't have to worry about putting it into a ponytail either, as I had to do that a lot when my hair was long. I don't look good in ponytails at all.

That is great that it is easy to care for. Mine was so thick, that it took forever to dry and hard to wash as well. I used to wash my hair in the sink back then, which means I was bent over and it was hard to know if I had used enough shampoo to cover the hair. I would never do that now, as it is much easier to wash in the shower. If you feel that your hair is easy to take care of, then don't cut it, as not everyone looks good with short hair. I, on the other hand, do not look good with long hair, so that is why I keep it short.

@DianneN Oh so did I. Even know when my hair starts to grow out, I will get it cut, as it litterally drives me nuts, as I cna't do anyting with it. I hate using hair bands, and I have deone that already, which meant it needed a good cutting them too, so I have decided that I won't let it get unmanageable and cut it when it needs it.

Long hair doesn't look good on any man that is for sure. My son used to have long hair when he was younger, but now he keeps it short and it looks great, but then he is in his 40's, so long hair on him would look awful.

I don't look good with long hair at my age. It is much easier to keep it cleaner, and just wash and go. I love that, as most of the time I don't have time to dry it, and I don't have to worry about it now. The beautician told me I had nice hair. I thought it was thinning out, but she said it is pretty thick, as my hair is normally thinck. My hair grows entirely to fast, that is for sure.
