Do you have short hair?

Does your spouse/partner find you attractive with it or wish it were longer?

I know it is just hair, but my husband HATES my short hair, while many in my life tell me they like it (and I don't think they are all just being nice). I think my husband just wants me to look more stereotypically feminine, but I think many do like short hair on a woman ...

  • Yes, I have short hair now. I used to have very long hair in college and shouler length when kids were young. When I was working full time I went shorter and then my son told me I look younger with short hair, so short it will stay!! ;) My DH always liked long hair on me but doesn't really care anymore.

  • No. Due to religious reasons, cultural reasons, and personal preferance. I have long hair and will most likely always have long hair.

    My husband, though for religious reasons has not cut his hair in  30 years (lol) and would never cut his hair, would have no issue if  **I** chose to cut my hair.  He has never seen me with short hair, so I do not know if he would find me in short hair attractive or not. However, I do know that he has repeatedly stated throughout our 25 year marriage that my hair is mine, and I should wear it however I choose to.

  • I do have short hair. Always have.
    My husband likes me in a hairstyle that suits me,and short hair does. He says he pretty much couldn't care either way,long,short,whatever.

  • I had waist-length hair and cut it recently to a below-the-chin bob. I look so much better with the short hair, everyone agrees including my husband.

  • Yes, I like short hair. I look fatter with long hair. Hubby would prefer if I had long hair, I had long hair when we met. He'd also prefer if I didn't color it the shade of red that I do. But I prefer this shade, and I get lots of compliments on the cut and color.

  • oh... and my husband doesnt really care at this point. i think hes given up on me ever having long hair again, because i constantly start to grow it out then shop it off again. lol. there are just too many options out there. :-)
