I know My Man loves long hair on women. I've always had long hair, the shortest I've had it since I've known him was about shoulder length, but I had gone to an expensive salon after my last class as an undergrad, and they did what they wanted, instead of what I wanted. It was barely shoulder length and for me, TOO curly. My hair doesn't grow fast, and it was still too short for my liking when we got married, many months later.
I kill my hair with a straight iron. I've been fighting curly hair since I was a child, and I LOVE my straight iron.
In fact, I was thinking of having my hair styled today. Just a little shorter in front and the split ends cut off.
For other women, it's up to them. But, I HATE "mommy cuts." (Think the mom on Jon and Kate Plus 8.) Yanno, women who just don't take care of themselves and have really unattractive "easy" short hair "for convenience." I think putting a little effort into your appearance isn't too much to ask, even with small kids. I had LONG hair when my kids were babies, a pony tail did it on rough days. I am not fond of pixie cuts either. Some women look OK in them, but most women look better with more hair.
In fact, I think men look good with more hair, too. But, being bald seems to be the order of the day for so many men. *sigh* Where have all the hippy dudes gone?
