Cutting hair short “just because” and changing hairstyles frequently is a sign of fickleness, and that is inherently unattractive. That’s why short hair is often seen on little girls and little teenage hipster chicks and riotgrrl punx because they haven’t matured to be able to take care of their own appearance.
Something as simple and easy as having long, flowing, beautiful and sexy hair is a sign of integrity and being able to stick to one thing for quite a while, something that most people lack in this day and age. It’s a sign of maturity and adulthood.
There’s also something really sensual about long, untamed, naturally grown hair. Seeing it is like an instant connection to nature and earthiness and humanness, if you’re into that spiritual hippie stuff. I am, if only a little bit.
Now I’m not saying that a sexy girl can’t look sexy with short hair (because she’s already sexy regardless), but I think a woman looks like a woman when she has long hair. Long hair is a signifier of maturity and womanliness.
Coming from a long haired girl, go fuck yourself.
At first I was angry but then I read “simple and easy” describing the maintenance of long hair and just started laughing
I’m a strong female character who don’t need no hair.
dear moderator of fuckyeahlonghairedgirls,
i have long hair. let me disabuse this hijacker of some misconceptions of having long hair from that post alone, because clearly that tumblr has no fucking idea what the fuck actually is going on behind the scenes.
some choice selections:
‘simple and easy’, ’signifier of maturity and womanliness’. let’s take a moment to facepalm.
i can show you what people with nice long hair usually do everyday to maintain it.
to you, this is probably basic stuff. but do you realise the kind of gymnastics we have to go through to blowdry our hair effectively? do you even know how long it takes to get shampoo out of your hair? i bet you don’t. i bet you think it’s all fucking magical. i bet you think that comb goes straight through our hair without us feeling like we’re about to tear our scalp out 80% of the time.
and before you give us shit about having to do all that and that we should just let it be all ~natural~, do you actually realise how ‘untamed, natural hair’ looks like, 99.9% of the time? i can assure you, that natural look had some treatment in it, or they used hairspray, or they even rebonded their hair, OR AT LEAST, SHE USED A COMB.
whatever you think, it’s not MAGICAL. IT’S HARD WORK.
COMPLETELY UNTAMED NATURAL HAIR DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THIS:
IT LOOKS LIKE THIS:
HAVING LONG HAIR IS A PAIN IN THE ASS, even more so when you want it to look nice. and even if it’s not a pain in the ass, it’s definitely time-consuming and/or expensive.
i don’t even know why i’m wasting my time talking about this since you have a misogynistic, racist shitty ass manifesto that everyone else can read over here
i don’t care if you like girls with long hair. it’s cool that you appreciate them. but it’s really not awesome to assume things about short haired ladies and shitting all over them in the process.
And really, only black, French, and black French women can pull off the short hair thing. The rest of you ladies look like half-assed lesbians. In fact, you KNOW you look like half-assed lesbians, which is why you encourage each other to shed your hair – to cripple the competition.
