I prefer my hair long. The longer the better. It's also very easy to take care of. I can trim it myself, don't have to go to the hairdresser.

After 15 years of wearing my hair shoulder length and covering the gray I decided last summer to go with a pixie cut. My hair is still really short and has silver streaks since I no longer use hair dyes. At 56, I have a very active lifestyle and find the short hair much, much easier to take care of.

I mostly prefer mine long. My mom kept my hair short when I was a kid because it was so fine she said it would be too tangled. I hated it because I had that bowl cut and was often mistaken for a boy. When I was in third grade I insisted the bowl had to go so she had it cut straight across my ears which was kinda in style but I still hated. In 4th grade I started refusing to get my hair cut cause I wanted long hair. Didn't cut my hair again until 8th grade and it still wasn't that long. Then waited again until I was a senior when it was finally most of the way down my back. I kept my hair a few inches past my shoulders until a few years ago. A friend convinced me I'd look good with an angled bob and since I wanted a change I went for it.

I prefer my hair at a medium length. I liked when I could do a ponytail to workout but the rest of the time it didn't really have a style.

I can do it!!

I prefer my hair to be long. Strangely, I find it much easier to maintain on myself than short hair, as my hair has a wave, so when it's long I can just wash and go, but when it's shorter I have to spend more time styling. And my hair is very stubborn, so the shorter it is, the more I have to fight with it!

I have my hair touching the top of my shoulders. It is okay.
I prefer my hair much shorter even though it may not look as good. I hate feeling hair touching my neck.

For now my preferred is longer. Currently just past shoulders. Too short for a pony though.

Shoulder length - just long enough for a pony!

I like my hair just below my shoulders, unfortunately it usually grows to my shoulders than I get a flip up style.

I have always had shoulder length hair or longer. I have donated to Locks of Love which makes wigs for cancer twice in the past 5 years. I will never have short hair as it makes my head look like a pumpkin.

I actually colored my hair for the very first time ever this year and I will be 50 in a couple of months....I am very lucky as I have naturally curly hair but am past the age of having really long hair.

My hair is past my shoulders and I would love if it would grow even longer. As a child, I had short hair and then just when it was beginning to grow out, my mom convinced me to have a chin length bob cut - not cool. As soon as I got to college I made it my mission to have long hair although when it is this hot and humid, long hair can be a challenge

Right now my hair is slightly longer than shoulder length. While I love my cut, unfortunately, it's too short to put up. And it doesn't even look good in a pony tail.

And while I love long hair, on me, beyond a certain length, it starts to look untidy. I'm also very short, so I've heard that short women shouldn't grow their hair too long or they will start to look even shorter. I don't know how true this is, but it's what I've heard.

I would never, never go for a bob or super short cut like a pixie, I just don't have the courage!

Right now, I'm trying to grow my fringe as well as the rest of my hair. I will get my next trim somewhere in November. That should give it time to grow out. The last time I got my haircut in the beginning of June, my stylists took too much off and layered it a bit too much, while it looks fab when let down, I can't do anything else with it, no pony tail (doesn't look good) or bun! sob!
