I was reading an excerpt of an interview with the gorgeous Michelle Williams in UK Elle and she said that her daughter would like her to grow her hair but she said
“I’ve really grown into it – I feel like myself with short hair. And it’s been a really long time since I had long hair, five years.”
Michelle also says
“Of course, the only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends. Straight men across the board are not into this hair.”
The quote that got me thinking is
“I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it.”
It made me question, who do I style my hair for?
Growing up my dad loved long hair so I think I was influenced by him, but as I got older I “rebelled” and went crazy with my hair. I loved playing with my hair and did whatever I wanted. I’ve had so many styles and I love short hair.
It’s my experience that most straight men love long hair too. I met my husband when I had short pink & white hair and I think he prefers me with shorter hair, but I’m happy keeping my hair long (for now!). Mr Romance does have a strong dislike for heavy fringes but I love them.
Did you grow up thinking long hair was the only way? Do you style your hair for yourself or do you worry about what other people think?
