For a long time I’ve had a passion for hair. I’ve had it long, short, bangs, curls, layered, you name it and I’ve had it. Lately I’ve been wondering if I should get a “BOB” or Lob, or invest in long hair. From what I’ve read long hair is great for people with textured hair (volume or frizz in my case) because it weighs down the hair, keeps it sleek and with a great cut is easy to maintain. But on the other had so is short hair, its fun, easy, and playful (perfect for summer). What’s your opinion?

It REALLY depends on the cut! whenever I’ve gone short I find it’s easier to manage and lighter in the summer but I’ve had one bad cut that was hell to maintain and I had to use a lot of product to get it the way I wanted it. The problem was it was too short at the back so it was really awkward :S

Long hair just doesn’t feel right on me, though I love it on others! I’ve had a medium length bob for the past 2.5 years and it’s sort of become my signature hairstyle, if you will. Short hair is pretty consistent for me – I don’t have to do much for it to look good. I have more bad hair days when my hair is long(er), but there’s so much more you can do with it in the event that you’re not satisfied with it.

depends on other things, like the cut, your face shape and your overall personal look! but for me, it’s long hair. you just have so many more variations of styles you can do, you can always make your hair seem shorter, but with short hair you cant make it look any longer once its straightened. :/ but its your choice! :)

I love long hair. I feel like I’ve cultivated my hair, and waited patiently for it to grow. I love the versatility of having long hair. I can throw it up, back, down, sideways, whatever I please. The only problem is the knotty knots. Also, a summer sun can drive my hair to sweat, which drives me crazy. Either way, I prefer long hair on girls. short hair can be chic too.. just not for me.. :)

I think having short hair is a lot more bold and original than just letting it grow. I loved having short hair – hardly anybody had a haircut like me and my hair actually had style rather than just sitting there. I’m growing mine out a little right now and got bangs relatively recently, but it’s still not long. And that’s also because I had my short hair the same for years and needed a change. Both can look good though!

I love my long hair! I had to cut it to my shoulders cause it was so damaged. I can’t wait for it to grow back!

I think short is more of a statement, and long is more traditional for girls.
Maintainance-wise, both take about the same effort if the cut is right.

I get bored of my hair fairly quick, so i like to change it up a lot, even got clip on things now to go longer at times =P

It depends on your facial structure and to a point, what your body looks like. I had long hair (down to my bum) most of my life but being so short, it made me look like a child. Now it’s short and it accents my face a lot better. So, it depends. I think you’d look good with a longer version of a pixie style cut. (Is that considered a bob? Hmm…I’m not sure now.)

I’ve had long hair most of my life (butt length+), though it’s shortish now. As others have mentioned, it depends on the individual, what they look like and feel comfortable with. I am small and thin, having shorter hair, I find I get more compliments and it is more age appropriate for me right now.

I think it depends on the person.It can really affect how old you look. Short hair makes some people look mature, but it makes me look like a 5 year old with chubby cheeks. I’m definitely a long hair kinda girl.

I personally love long hair. My hair is quite long actually (past my belly button). It just sucks when it’s really windy or really hot aha.

why don’t you try medium length hair? i think its very versatile since it give you the playfulness but with the fun of being able to style it and its pretty low maintenance.

Long hair for sure, because you can always change the hair style in different ways. Short hair doesnt have much options,,,Besides that I think most men prefer girls with long hair, that can be a seductive weapon

personally I love long/shoulder length hairstyles, but it depends on face structures and if someone looks good in short hairstyles (Halle Berry) then they should totally rock it

I had hair that was extremely long. I mean LONG. I just got so tired of spending an hour on it everyday, so I went to my stylist and asked him to HACK IT OFF. It’s pixie short….and I LOVE IT. I’ve never been so happy with my hair. I am super tall and skinny, but my hair and the length makes me feel like a goddess ;) So I adore it. plus you can throw in some punk rock color, I currently have half green, make it punk and CHIC .

I feel like long hair is 1000x more versatile than short—even just playing around with the hair that frames the face can easily change a look. I’ve had pretty long hair all my life (~elbow length), and I cut it myself because I don’t trust anyone else with it lol. I asked for a trim two years ago, and they cut like a foot of my hair :|.
I had a friend who cut her hair short five years ago, and she’s still trying to grow it out because she hates that awkward in-between length and always gets a trim every couple months. if your’e not too concerned about that, go for it!

and about the textured hair—I had a friend who had frizzy hair that was long, but the right person cut it and layered her hair short, and it made her curls come to life :)

It depends on the person and the cut. I’ve never had it very long, just down to my ribcage, but it was out of control and I had to straighten it everyday. When it got too hard to manage, I cut it up to my shoulders, but I still have to straighten it everyday because it’s wavy and it looks really big when I don’t straighten it. I guess I can’t win either way :/

Oh don’t worry :) I used to have wild hair, and I hated it! I wanted to be one of those lucky people that could just walk out of the shower and do nothing and my hair would look great. And I got that, I had to pay 80 something euro’s for a hair cut, but it literally changed my hair! I hardly do anything to it :D..but it did take me awhile to find that hairdresser, took me a lot of bad haircuts, but it was worth it!
