I decided, my second year of law school, that since I like having short hair, and it’s easier to take care of, I would never grow my hair out below my shoulders again. Which I have mostly stuck to. It got a little long after the wedding last year when I was unemployed and couldn’t afford a haircut, and I hated it. I vastly prefer short hair.
Which is why I’m finally getting a haircut. I grew my hair out a little bit for my sister-in-law’s wedding, just so I could have some fun with it, but then I didn’t have time to get a haircut and now it’s been two months and I’m far overdue. When I went to look for haircut inspiration this morning though, I found this forum talking about whether short hair is professional. I don’t really have an opinion on whether short hair is professional – I think neat hair is professional, and however you want to achieve that is up to you. But some of the anti-short-hair sentiments made my blood boil.
"Until then, I will look like a woman. If I wanted to look like a man, I would have had a sex change." Really? Really? Way to be classy, and insult a whole lot of people all in one sentence.
"Sexist! I guess men can’t handle too much woman, so he prefers somebody more butch looking to avoid getting to attracted to her." Really, you think a chin length bob is butch? You think my hair really stops somebody from being attracted to me? (My husband disagrees.)
So this got me thinking – I personally like having short hair that looks good with a suit. I could care less what other women do with their hair. What do you think?
