A lot of girls don't have the type of body to sport a shorter haircut and most girls will only play around with the idea making sure they don't cut anywhere above their shoulder line. But, it really depends on your body. I personally enjoy long hair a bit tampered with or curled that is put up. I like the idea that my girl has long hair, maybe even long wild hair... but at the same time.. I like to be able to see her neck. So I get the best of both worlds.. Her hair is long but it's up so it exemplifies the "short" aspect. That's how I like my girls hair to be.
