As a kid, my hair was super long. When I was about 4ish, my mom gave me a bob haircut and I had a meltdown. For years, I wouldn’t let anyone cut it except my bangs. When I was about 10, my mom put her foot down because my hair was down to my waist amd super thick. I’m fairly tall and was already past 5 feet then, so that was a LOT of hair to take care of. Ever since then, I’ve gone back and forth between short and long. It’s short at the moment, but I’m trying to decide if I should grow it out again. One of the ways I stim is putting my hands in my hair.

Fluctuating. It grows quickly, so it only takes three months for my hair to go from short to long.

I may get it cut shorter again, looking less gay isn't helping, in fact I think the bob's made me look older.

I have a nice bob cut that fits the shape of my face quite well. I usually don't tie it up, which saves me some time when doing labs in my chem class involving fire.

My hair was short between the ages of 7-13, around bob-length. My proportionate length now is closer to the one I had in pre-school.
My hair is down to my mid-back, although I had it almost to my buttocks before donating it to make wigs for cancer patients. I do not look good with bobs. I wear my hair down except for when I sleep or am active. I personally use my hair to insulate the back of my neck.

Is the back of your neck sensitive to the slightest movement of air? Do you need to cover it at all times? Do you search endlessly for tops that do this or is your hair enough?

I cover the back of my neck all the time, not with my hair though.

I have done this and dyed it to a nice brown that I think is my natural colour. Looks much better.

Still growing it out, I would like it to be longer than it is, most of it goes to my shoulders but some in the front is a tiny amount shorter, which is annoying because I cannot even put it all back in a hair-tie. Luckily it's fall and soon to be winter so I can at least wear a hat on the atrocity that is my hair so its less visible. and hopefully by next spring it will be significantly longer.

I have long hair, past my shoulders. As a child I wore it chin-length, though.

I have long hair, past my bra strap on my back. It was quite a bit longer until I cut it a month ago.

I like having long hair!
I’ve had shorter hair and just didn’t feel like myself.

My hair is past my shoulder and long enough to put up in a messy bun on top.

It was longer but get too wild so I had lots chopped off to make it more manageable.

Short hair is too much of a pain to style for me and doesn't really suit me.

Medium length. I'm trying to grow it out.
