Is my hair too long? With pics!

My Mother (whose opinion I shouldn't care about but do) is on the verge of making a hair appt for me when I go home at Christmas as she hates my long hair and has used the word 'witch' about it in the past hmm

I haven't been to a hairdresser in well over a year. I love my hair long and hate hairdressers thanks to a history of unwanted dos and a deep fear of layered Mum cuts and sensible bobs. In my defence it is very thick and shiny.

I'm 32. Tell me MN, is my hair too long and do I look like a witch??

You really suit the heavy fringe and it's a great colour and length. Maybe a tidy-up but nowt more! envy

Oh my goodness, your hair is GREAT smile

I wish mine would grow that long and that thick.

And no, you don't look remotely like a witch.

You have lovely hair, really full. Don't cut it if you like it long, no matter whayt others think.
I'm 40 in march and have long hair, some are white these days.
Oh, and some of my best mates are witches grin

Is your mother normally this rude btw?

CheungFun Mon 10-Dec-12 09:12:16

Nope, not witchey at all! I think maybe have a trim so it grows longer and wind up your mum ;)

FrancesFarmer Mon 10-Dec-12 09:12:49

You look great and your hair is lovely.

FancyPuffin Mon 10-Dec-12 09:13:29

You and your hair are gorgeous.

Don't change a thing <stern>

In a word Sleds, yes!

She made me have a bowl short hair till I was old enough to say no (while my sister had long hmm). I'm definitely overcompensating by having it as long as possible but it definitely annoys her.

A Psychoanalyst would have a field day.

It does need a tidy up. I cut it myself so it's definitely not perfect blush. It's just a big part of my identity and I don't want to come out with a regulation Mum cut.

Thanks all.

Personally, I'd lose about 4 inches but [shrug] it's not my hair.

MrsBucketxx Mon 10-Dec-12 09:17:18

your hair looks lovely,nshort hair can be just as aging as long. it totally depends on the style.

SledsImOn Mon 10-Dec-12 09:18:03

It looks beautiful and tbh, stuff your mother - she clearly has issues and they're not your problem.

DoesntTurkeyNSproutSoupDragOn Mon 10-Dec-12 09:19:46

(meant to add that I don't think it looks witchy)

LadyMargolotta Mon 10-Dec-12 09:20:03

You look great with long hair. So does your dd smile

Nothing wrong with looking like a witch anyway (although you don't. Witches don't have fringes).

BunnyLebowski Mon 10-Dec-12 09:21:18

Cheers Sleds.

New record for number of 'definitely's in one post there too. Ho hum. At least I got the spelling right wink

BunnyLebowski Mon 10-Dec-12 09:21:52

grin @ "Witches don't have fringes."

QuietNinjaChristmasSpecial Mon 10-Dec-12 09:22:57

Your hair's fine! And your dd baby photos are soooo cute.

GlaikitFizzogTheChristmasElf Mon 10-Dec-12 09:26:08

I'm envy I would kill for hair like yours! But I don't have the patience! My hair is the longest I've had it since school now, and my hairdresser is under strict instruction not to cut it short no matter how much I beg.

Maybe humour your mum by going for a trim, if its been a year since yr last cut the ends might need a wee snip.

MissVerinder Mon 10-Dec-12 09:26:38

It's lovely. You look like Kelle Hampton, (which is a good thing) and how gorgeous is your DD?

headfairy Mon 10-Dec-12 09:27:25

Bunny keep your long hair.... I too was subjected to years of crap short hair cuts (I have very very fine hair, my mother lied told me having it short would make it thicker) and I now have long(ish) locks and won't have them cut short for anyone, despite my mothers comments that I'm too old to have rats tails (her description). Yes I'm 42, but it's shiny, a decent colour (I think - no grey at all) and in good condition so yah boo sucks to you mum! I also have have a pic on profile but I can't rotate it for some reason

BunnyLebowski Mon 10-Dec-12 09:28:30

DD is a cutie grin

Funny my Mum has tried to get me to cut DD's too but DD wants "hair like Rapunzel" grin

Too weird MissVerinder - Kelle's blog is where I go for fringe inspiration! And just general inspiration. She's crazy cool.

headfairy Mon 10-Dec-12 09:28:36

ps. is that you with the 1950s look? It's fab!

BunnyLebowski Mon 10-Dec-12 09:29:47

Your hair is gorgeous (as are your kids) headfairy. I love that middle part style. My cowlicks make it impossible!

BunnyLebowski Mon 10-Dec-12 09:30:15

T'is me grin

Another great thing about long hair - makes all the vintage styles I love much easier!

MistletoeAndTomHardyPlease Mon 10-Dec-12 09:30:35

It's beautiful.

You look how I want to look.
