It Touches Your Feminine Side

It Touches Your Feminine Side There is something undeniably feminine and beautiful about having long locks. I believe any hairstyle can be sexy if styled properly, however there is something about long hair that spans culture for its symbol of womanhood and desire. Many men, if not most, find long hair very attractive on a woman because it exemplifies beauty and femininity- one of the many reasons to love your long hair!


It Requires Less MAINTENANCE

It Requires Less MAINTENANCE Long hair doesn't require as much maintenance as shorter hairstyles. You don't need to cut it as often for it to look fresh- some shorter styles, like a bob or A-line, require regular salon trips to keep it from looking shabby. You can also wait longer to color your hair because grown-out highlights look natural and are totally in! Yet another advantage of long hair is that you don't have to style it for it to look good and better yet, you don't need to wash it as often as you would short hair! I had an A-line for a couple years and would have to wash, blow dry and straighten it on a daily basis to keep it from looking oily, flat and unkempt!


Long Hair is Just Lovely (and Sexy!)

Long Hair is Just Lovely (and Sexy!) Almost anyone can pull off long hair as flattering and sexy (unless you have very thin hair, in which case longer locks may not be your best option). Every time I see a woman with long, beautiful hair, I immediately think about how lovely she looks regardless of what she's wearing or how her makeup looks. It's effortlessly chic to sport long hair!


You Can Style It Any Way You Want

You Can Style It Any Way You Want You have endless possibilities when it comes to styling your gorgeous locks- from curly to straight to countless up-do styles, there's bound to be one or many that you love! One of my go-to styles is a chic side braid. I am a busy mom with an active toddler and most days I don't feel like spending the time to curl or flat iron my hair. A side braid takes less than 5 minutes to achieve and it always looks good! Unfortunately with shorter hair, you don't have many options for styling- even a simple pony isn't an option sometimes! That was one of the reasons for growing my hair out and keeping it long- I love options!


It's Hard to Have a Bad Hair Day

It's Hard to Have a Bad Hair Day Any of you ladies who have had shorter hair or even bangs, you know what it's like to wake up with crazy bed head! None of us love to spend a ton of time fixing the jumbled mess that your beauty sleep caused. With long hair, going to bed with a high, loose bun will prevent you from having a bad hair day! Many times I don't do a single thing to my hair other than brush it out in the morning. Long hair can, however, get dried out from processing (longer hair means older hair) and not getting regular trims, so make sure to do a hair mask once a week and trim your hair every 6-8 weeks to prevent breakage.

Famous Quotes

To give oneself earnestly to the duties due to men, and, while respecting spiritual beings, to keep aloof from them, may be called wisdom.


It Lengthens a round Face

It Lengthens a round Face When I was pregnant with my son, I made the mistake of cutting all my hair off because pregnancy really dried out my hair (and skin!). In my third trimester and once baby arrived and beyond, I had a very round face that I would have loved to have kept less obvious with long, layered locks. Long hair lengthens a round face making it appear more oval, which is beneficial if you have fuller face.


It Took Years to Grow It out

It Took Years to Grow It out And finally, one of the reasons to adore your lovely long hair is that it took ages to grow it out! Your hair grows about half an inch per month and with regular trims, it's no wonder it takes years for it to grow out! So next time you feel like cutting it off on a whim, remember how long it took to grow it out- you may change your mind.

Long hair is so lovely and flattering, and yet it's also fun to have a short, lively hairstyle if that suits you! If you do have long hair or wish to grow yours longer, what do you love about it?

Honestly though this article actually made me feel like crap about my shorter damn 😑

Long hairs pretty but I prefer my jaw length hair,I'm active and move around a lot,I had long hair but chopped it off cause it was only getting in the way I don't plan on growing it out either anytime soon,shorter hair can be beautiful and chic too especially with cute hair accessories

I still have lobg hair but was shorter not a long time ago.. I really liked it and in fact i just cut it bc of two reasons, which are that my ends looked really bad and i haven't had a cut in a while so it had to get done and that i have very thick hair.. Which is actually pretty amazing but my hair went down to my waist and i couldn't really do anything with it bc my head always hurt when i did something different than just a simple braid.. :/ but if you don's have as thick hair as me, long hair is really amazing :)

I wish I had long hair... :(

i love long hair! my hair is currently past my shoulders and I am growing it out to my waist. i keep it in a very good condition and receive a lot of compliments from men :) i will never cut it!

Long hair is wonderful. It really is. It is just more interesting, fun, and attractive than short hair...I have super long, thick, naturally straight hair that reaches past my hips.

It can be a great conversation starter...There are so many ways to style long hair. It can make you more confident. It can dress up any outfit..If you have really long hair, it can make you feel very unique...Long hair doesn't take lots of work, if you take care of it properly.

If I want to curl my hair, I use those heat free foam rollers...I don't cut my hair, because I am trying to see how long I can actually grow it. Not everyone actually has to trim their hair every 6 to 8 weeks though...I only go to a salon maybe once every three or four months....It still grows...Healthy, long hair will always be more attractive than short hair. What always annoys me is when people always make long haired girls feel like they need to cut it shorter...If you have long hair, and you like it, why would you just cut it because someone makes you feel bad? your hair is on your head, grow it as long as you like and don't let the haters get you down

I have long hair that goes down to my waist but some people tease me about it since I look like I'm fully black but I'm not (I'm half West Indian). They say that I wear weave just because I look 100% black even though I don't!!! Like I said they TEASE me from time to time, and it's only 2 or 3 people, even though they know that it's my real hair. And then when I get upset and tell them off they say "calm down we're just joking we know it's your real hair " and then I feel like I over reacted. Help please!!!!

@jnaya I have almost waist length hair and I AM fully black. Just a note: Black women can grow hair and we all do not wear weaves. :)
