Why do girls cut their hair?

This drives me absolutely nuts! A girl will have gorgeous long hair that's like halfway down her back and one day she'll cut it show it's like barely at her shoulders. Why? I hate it when you guys do this!

  • because we aren't living our lives for the sole purpose of approval from guys, its our hair and we get it cut or styled how WE want it not how MEN want it.

    we don't even factor in mens opinions (unless he's already our boyfriend or husband and even then its not a case of omg will he still love me? will he leave me?) because we can easily get that half of men who do prefer shorter styles or that percentage of men who aren't superficial and don't care about our hair length as long as we are happy with it

  • In case you haven't noticed...girls don't keep their hair for guys. Long hair is heavy. It's like carrying a wet mop on your head during the summer. It takes too long to dry. You can't do many styles with it. It takes too long to do. Brushing takes forever. Heaven forbid you get a knot in it. It gets stuck in zippers and doors.

    Girls aren't on this earth to please you lol. Find a girl who likes long hair if you must.

  • The "gorgeous, long hair" you're thinking of is probably only so nice-looking because of the use of heating products, like straighteners and curling irons, which eventually damages our hair by making it dry and split end-y. So a lot of times we'll get a haircut for the sake of our hair's health.

    Or we just want a change.

  • Well, we can't really look the same for our entire life. We need a change and maintaining long hair without any knots can be quite a bit of work. I had cut my hair to my shoulders before - never doing this again since it looked horrible. Now, I only cut it as much as I need to get rid of the split ends. Besides, hair isn't teeth, it grows back :)

  • exactly like my sister her hair are long and lustrous like my mums and black in colour. They reach just above her backside and all she wants to do is cut them. I feel like slapping her when she says it and I'm like I'd love to have hair like you but she doesn't care not that it has an effect on her

  • Bc it feels awesome. I was one of those girls and my hair grows back and long fairly fast. But I remember I just wanted a change and I was in love with the bob so I chopped my hair. Plus long hair is a task to wash and if a girl has dark hair, like mine is jet black. In summer it is really hot on your head, almost feels like hot metal to the touch lol.

  • Because the hair belongs to the girl, not you, and she can do what she wants with it.

  • Cause we want to. It's our hair, we can do what we want. And I feel the same about guys! If my boyfriend cut his hair (it's like mid length now) I'd go nuts! But I respect that it's his hair and he can do what he want with it. I'll still go nuts ..BUT in a RESPECTFUL manner ^^ lol

  • even though I've always been a fan of crystal gail's hair, that would be just impossible to deal with. so when mine gets too bothersome, I'll cut it. I only do this once a year though, as usually I'm okay with ponytails. but I like the feeling of shorter hair...and it shows off my earrings.

  • I think they do it for style, I used to cut my hair really short and people thought I was a guy, but now I only trim off the split ends because I want longer hair. Its not like I don't enjoy having short hair and all, but I plan on growing mine to my ankles.

  • Well sometimes girls get bored and want a new look, may need to cut off all the dead ends or probably donate it? I know when my hair gets long I have to cut the tips off but I don't like my hair to be short, I don't like it on myself, I personally love my hair long! :D

  • Girls just want to change their look or have their preferences. The last time I had a hair cut, I was 7 years old. That was about 11 or 12 years ago. My hair is a bit past my knees now. The longer your hair gets, the more work goes into it. I can see why they cut their hair, but that is just not for me.

  • Because some people like a change.

    I personally think some women have the features to pull that look off.

  • The only reason I don't cut my hair is because I'm too lazy to cut it and I'm generally an unsanitary person (FUCK WHAT IS SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE!) It doesn't take too long to fix at all. All I do is brush my hair and spray a little bit of oil on it, then I get compliments left and right lol. It's down to my butt. I guess it's just genetics because I don't have to take time to straighten it since it's naturally very straight.

  • Because it's a pain to take care of when it's long. We already do so much extra stuff to our bodies to make us attractive, having short hair makes it one less thing to worry about.

  • I feel the same when guys shave their heads or get near buzz cuts after having nice sex hair that I can grab onto when we makeout. I'm never getting my hair cut above my bra strap (band)

  • It's really not about what you like, but what she likes. Girls cut their hair for quite a few reason:

    Bored of their looks

    Donating it

    For hair health reasons

    Low maintenance

    etc

  • why do guys have long hair? it drives me absolutely nuts! A guy will have normal short hair and then one day he'll grow it down to halfway down his back and have a disgusting ponytail! Why? I hate it when other people intentionally choose to offend me with their choices! Doesn't everyone know that they need to come to me for approval for every minute decision in their lives? I mean this guy took a shit and wiped his ass without asking me yesterday! I mean the nerve on that guy!

    You sound like a petulant child.

  • I trim,not cut my chin-length bob cut once every 2 months to keep it in a good shape.I look better in chin-length hair than in long hair and most people around me in real life agree with me.

  • well some girls look great with short hair...but not all I feel where you're coming from some ruin their looks but going for the edgy short hair look

    but if a girl can pull it off I can be verrrry attractive...

  • Because other guys like short hair, myself included... But in all seriousness it could be many things, I'm sure maintaining long hair is harder than maintaining should length hair.

  • Ignore those girls. One of the reasons I hate this site is girls like those

    1. It's the new fashion. It's "in" right now for girls to have short "pixie like" cuts

    2. They cute it so that it's easier to manage

    3. they do it to piss the guy she likes, off because they know it irritates us and for some reason, it amuses them to see us pissed off
