    Snapshot 9/3/14

    Approximately how long is your hair?

    ~2.5 inches on top

    Cut this past Thursday to 1/16 of an inch.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    More than 24", it's down to the small of my back currently. I am getting annoyed with it so I am contemplating a haircut. I always donate my hair to Locks of Love.

    I'm always surprised when I hear about women who maintain a head of hair that's like two feet or more in length. I mean how do you live with it? Seems like it'd take forever to dry, and hours to brush/style, and would constantly be getting into one's face. There's probably other inconveniences I haven't even thought of. On the other hand, it might open up other career opportunities

    I get a 4 on top and a 2 on the sides. So whatever that means in inches.

    I've pretty much always had long hair. Even when it is short it's below my shoulders. It doesn't really bother me very much, when it does I just put it in a ponytail or a bun. My hair is super straight and doesn't hold a curl for more than an hour so there's not much styling going on-just brush and go. My hair takes about an hour to dry, usually I wash it at night rather than the morning. I'm a low maintenance gal, it only takes me 15 minutes to get ready in the morning.

    I'll pass on the circus.

    My hair on top can't really be measured in units like this. It's simply "BIG".

    Canadian's understand inches and feet well for some reason.
    ...millimetres would be a little crazy to use for my length ... .

    It takes around 20 minutes to air dry, and like kjel's, mine dries straight. Styling my hair takes up approximately 2 minutes of my day in total. I think the longer it is, the less styling there is to do, regardless of texture, because really there are only two options for hair thats 2ft+, and that's up, or down.
    Getting food in hair and hair in food is the only real problem I've come across.

    Eh..just easier to manage this way. Low maintenance and I can cut it at home and not pay a barber.

    Anywhere from 0.5 to 1.0 inch. I have alopecia aerota that comes and goes, so I can't buzz it down shorter without taking the chance of waking up one morning looking like I have radiation poisoning.

    An ex has what I describe as "Nurse Jackie hair". She claims it's because it's "low maintenance", yet she used to spend 20-30 minutes putting on makeup every morning. Not a fan of the style.

    About 1/2 inch on the sides and about 1 inch on top. It's time to get it cut though.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    I confess I actually like the aesthetics of longer hair over shorter hair styles, but get annoyed when SO's with long hair cause punctuality to suffer by having to wait for them to 'finish their hair' (and yes this can be a factor when it comes to cosmetics too in my book).

    Yep. I figure I save about $20-30/month just by having my wife shave my head with our own clippers, not to mention the money saved on shampoo and conditioners, etc. since I need only a very miniscule amount. I have a bottle of shampoo that's taken me almost a year and a half to go through!

    For me, it is a concession to a receding hairline; multiple cowlicks in difficult places; and, typical male-pattern baldness. If I grew my hair out, I'd be afraid of looking like Hitler on a bad-hair day ...
