All my life I had hair. But for a long time my mother would not allow me to cut it. Once I cut my hair without permission and she put me on punishment and called my stylist and scolded her for cutting ‘my long beautiful hair.” That wasn’t the first time I realized length of hair was strangely important to people.
I recently read 2 blogs that talked about a couple of celebrities who shaved their heads or part of their heads. It brought back some memories of how having long hair was seen as a ‘plus’ and how irritated that made me. I remember sitting in salons and people asking me why am I cutting my hair like I was committing the cardinal sin. I remember comments from men, “wow, you’re beautiful for someone with short hair.”
There is a negative stigma towards women who do not have long hair. Hair is so closely related to sexuality some beautiful women have been dismissed by men solely because of a short ‘do.’
Hair is not a prerequisite for beauty. And just in case you thought it was, me and my bald bombshells are hair to set the record straight!
