I have super thick and curly/wavy hair. My ends get ugly so fast. I love having short hair c: so much easier to straighten.

Long hair, I've never had my hair cut short. The shortest being only one time it hit just below my shoulder blades. I think I associate it with femininity and how I'm suppose to look, but I really so like it as well.

I love my hair when it's long but it takes ages to grow because it's so thick! I recently shaved my head for charity and I kinda like it an inch from my head the way it was done suits my face but I can't wait until it grows out again!!

If I wasn't a fat blob, I'd love to have short hair. But my hair's a soft afro, so would be a nightmare short if it wasn't a weave. Might make that my reward at my UGW...

 

I think short hair looks best on skinny people, otherwise it just draws attention to the extra weight.

I have short hair (pixie) and it suits me but I do feel so jealous of girls with long pretty hair. My hair is fine and thin tho so luxury hair's not in the cards.

I like both. I really loved my pixie cut but after a year I missed my long hair. Its finally grown to my shoulders and I can wait for it to get really long. In a few years though I'm pretty sure I'll chop it off again. It looks really sharp super short.

It depends on the person for what looks best. But for me personally, I prefer medium length (to shoulders or slightly above). If I was skinnier I might cut it shorter than normal. I've considered growing my hair really long because I think it looks so pretty on other people, but whenever my hair gets too long, I wish it was short...But when I get it cut shorter, I want it to be long again. Frustrating>.<

long, on everybody.

 

most people look good with long hair. Only some can pull off short. I *can*, but I like being able to tie it back.

I have had both and I think long hair makes me look skinnier so I like that better. I'm trying to grow it out now as I just donated it to locks of love a few months ago :)

I like long hair better on myself because it makes me look more feminine.

 

I hate how short my hair is now :\

I've had long hair for so long like really long to my ass and I just recently cut it above my shoulders. To be honest I feel like I look thinner with short ass hair. I like both though, long and short.
