Most times I've had my hair short, there was a reason. When I was little (4 and again around 8), my mother cut off my long hair because, in the process of trying to break me of biting my nails, I started chewing on my hair.
When I was in my teens, my stepmother forced us through home-perms which made my hair a frazzled mess, then took us for haircuts which took off most of it.
Once as an adult I chose to have my hair cut short just to see how it would look. My hair is very straight and I have no patience with blow-drying, trying to add a wave at the ends, or styling, so it didn't look good.
Short hair doesn't make me miserable though. My hair grows faster than the average 6 inches per year (more like 8, I think), so I could have it shaved and in two years it would be past my shoulders.
