Girls Write Out
Tuesday, February 17, 2009

We all know how men love long hair. My Dave would have me sitting on my hair if it were up to him. There's a young woman at our church who has beautiful blond hair. It was super long, all one length until this past week. My jaw dropped when I saw her on Friday. She'd cut it up to about middle of her back and she had bangs! Cute as all get out. I asked her if her husband was onboard with it. She laughed and said no but he was getting used to it. Her sister-in-law piped up and said, "What is it with men and long hair?" Then we al began to commiserate together. LOL

She told me about a friend who finally got her husband to see. If you have long hair and are wanting to cut it, you might try it. Here's what the friend did. She told her husband HE would have to wash it, blowdry it and style it for the next week. By the end of the week, he said, "You can cut it, honey." LOL It just tickled me no end because I could see a guy having to manipulate a hairdryer and a curling iron. I've only gotten Dave broken in on the coffee pot! I shudder to think of the curling iron. :-)

And on a fun note, have you seen this video of an airport meltdown? I saw it on Fox yesterday morning and laughed. Only not TOO much because I've felt that way myself! LOL

Happy Tuesday! I have to get a crown replaced today so not so fun for me.

I cut my hair even shorter. My neighbor told me (as I stood outside her chicken coop -- that's another story) that she thought I was a teenage boy from behind. LOL But my hair doesn't grow down only out, so DH never had that option. Maybe that's the secret. LOL

That video just cracks me up. She's speaking Cantonese or I'd ask my neighbor what she's saying. I want to know who is talking and taking the video. Hysterical!

I got mine cut off a year ago and am now considering growing it back. I have a love/hate thing with my hair (as I'm sure all women do)

LOL I have longer hair I guess you'd call it. It used to be much longer, but I did cut it to my shoulders. I just don't think I look good with short hair. But I'm wanting a change and just don't know what to do.

I don't have a husband, but I've seen this universal law of "man-wants-woman-with-uber-long-hair" with my parents. My dad hates it when Mom cuts her hair higher than her shoulders. Yet he doesn't mind getting a haircut every two weeks. LOL. It's so cute between them.

I, personally, like my hair short. I think it looks better long, but it's such a hassle to take care of once it reaches past my shoulders. You know, I could use up half a bottle of conditioner just trying to keep this stuff from looking like a science experiment gone wrong. So every summer I cut it above my shoulders -- 'tis bliss to have some air on the back of my neck.

I once had REALLY long hair. Maybe it's smart never to let your man see it that way. :-)

I know what you mean about the love/hate thing with your hair, Suzanne. And we should be able to style it however it looks best on us! But maybe Dave's preference has kept me from the huge mistake of cutting it REALLY short! :-)

Just don't let Dave see Shopoholic. If there's a woman that can watch that movie and not covet that hair...I don't know.

Ha - my own mother pulled this trick on me. I loved long hair when I was young, but she always managed it for me - combing and brushing, putting into braids or ponytails or whatever. One day - when I was around 8 or 9, she told me it was my turn to start taking care of it myself.

I told her to schedule me an appointment to get it cut!

As an adult, I've gone back and forth with it, but probably won't grow it long any more - too much trouble. And the longer it is, the older I look! Who needs that?

My husband loved my really long (very thick) hair. It's still longish, but much more manageable, and he is resigned to it. My theory on men and long hair? I think they all have a Lady Godiva fantasy!

So glad I'm not the only one with a husband that has a long hair fetish! Everyone was starting to comment on how long my hair was getting (it was maybe middle of my back, not THAT long) and I just said, "Trying to be a good wife." It's funny how so many people thought that was HORRIBLE that I'd try to do that for my husband.

I did finally get it cut a few weeks ago. It's shoulder length now and hubby likes it, so it's all good!

I used to work with a woman who had beautiful red hair that rivaled Crystal Gayle's in length, and her husband would wash it, braid it, put it up in a bun, etc. for her.

Before my hubby and I got married, he told me that if I ever cut my hair short (it was not quite to the middle of my back) he would shave off his moustache (not a good thing - he looks like a twelve year old without it, and I do have a 'thing' for them *g*). I went to see him one evening having had my hair layered and permed that afternoon, with it still hanging just below my shoulders. I saw him the next day cleanshaven - eeek! Over the years, thankfully, he's kind of resigned himself to the fact that due to health reasons (I have rosacea), it will never be 'long' again. I keep my hair just past my shoulders (long enough to put up) since the longer my hair is the hotter I get, which causes more flare-ups.

I wouldn't covet it, Kris. I used to have it only in dark hair. And it was a PAIN to take care of. You have any idea how long it takes to even wash it--let alone dry it!

You might be right, One More Writer! Krista, I used to grow mine long for my husband too. We want them to think we're beautiful. LOL That's an incredible story, Jenny!

Ahhh, Kristin, I have the same problem. It grows out not down. It was a little longer in high school but I got it cut in my twenties and now it refuses to grow in lenght. Sigh. Glad to know I'm not the only one. LOL.

My hubby actually likes shorter cuts. He'll tell me to get it a little shorter this time. I think he likes how much fast I can get ready when it's short. :)

I would go for washing her hair and drying it if it was long, however she would have to get up very early in the morning so I could do it before I leave for work at 6:30. Like that would happen. LOL The reason men like long hair is because it looks sexy. Think about it have you ever seen a shampoo ad with short hair? Usual at least shoulder length and very thick. They know what sell shampoo. Women think if I use that my hair will look like that, not stopping to realize you have to have hair that long to look that way.

I think I may have the odd one out boyfriend - he prefers my hair shorter.

My hair is the longest it's been in awhile (about between my shoulder blades) and he was just telling me the other day how he prefers it a bit shorter!

Which is perfect for me because so do I and it's so much easier to manage :)

My boyfriend recently admitted that he has a hair fetish. He is bald and says he things his fetish goes back to his youth when he watched the muppets and liked the muppet with the l?ong blonde straight hair. I am confused.
