: Ok. I am new to having long hair (3 years out- too my shoulders now).
: Sorry for these questions that I am sure been covered a zillion times:
: How many people get "you need to get a haircut": "be a man"; "you would look better with short hair" "do you want to be a woman?" and other stupid inconsiderate phrases. I love my long hair. I keep it looking good.
: How often do members get such comments, and have they ever drove you to just give up and get it cut?
: Like I said I am new here and new to this so I am sure this has been discussed a time or 2 :)
: Thanks for any support!!
Just about all of us have experienced something of the sort you describe, Kevin. But, in the end, it is your life, your hair, your appearance. When you really identify as a longhair, there is no cutting. After enough time and reaching an age where you are totally on your own, the BS stops. I would say I get mainly Only compliments on my hair now. People are attracted to confidence and individuality, Kevin. Just forget about your hair and be yourself. As far as the comments, either just ignore them, or tell them that if they have criticisms, you have a few about them as well. And then just drop it. Once they know you won't take the bait, the fun is out of the fight. You will see it becomes super easy, rewarding, and fun to be a longhair, and yourself.
