What Does Your Hairstyle Say About You?

October 28, 2009

By Shyla Batliwalla | Divine Caroline

Ever since watching Anne of Green Gables as a pre-teen, I’ve craved long, flowing red locks. Unfortunately, I was given dark brown hair that refuses to grow past my chin.

In Reading People: How to Understand People and Predict Their Behavior – Anyplace, Anytime, author Jo-Ellan Dimitrius points out that extremes in hair length, volume, color, or style can provide details about a woman’s personality.

#1: Short Hair →

    I think the description of the short-haired woman is incorrect. You don't have to spend a whole lot of money on your hair to keep it short...and in fact, it could mean extremely low maintenance. It could be an out-doorsy type that doesn't want to fuss with her hair...and in so many ways the boyish styles that are low maintenance indicate a lack of vanity in my book. Lots of girls that wear their hair short rarely even wear makeup, and don't look in the mirror often. Lots of them are athletic types that like to run, ride their bikes, and spend a lot of time doing outdoors type activities.

    None of this makes sense. It just sounds like a list of negatives tailored to specific haircuts. All of their cons may be applied to each other, or just as easily the positive aspects may be applied- the short of the matter is people will find a reason to like or dislike you regardless of hairstyle

    Some of us have naturally curly hair where we can add a little mousse and let it go? When we cut short...makes us look like Little Ophan Annie or Shirley Temple. When I'm ready to let the gray take over... I'd rather be a grandma with a long braid then a short cut that constantly has to be trimmed or styled everyday. I guess to each his own....

    I would have rather seen an article about how to get a decent cut that goes from office to "weekend". My hair? I'm starting to think I should just jump on the wig trend-it NEVER does what I want it to.

    Wow. Well, that sure as heck doesn't describe me! ;) I have long black hair, and I like it that way because I can shower, brush it out, and leave it alone. Easy!

    Besides, when I feel it gets long enough that I am going to start straining my neck in the shower because I can no longer lift with ease my mass of wet hair, I get it cut to about mid-neck length, donate it, and let it grow out again. That's been my routine now for the past ten years or so, and it's worked fantastically for me!

    People need to judge others based on what's inside their heads, not what's on top of their heads.

    What about us with medium-length hair? Does this look bespeak our desire to remain invisible/anonymous/unnoticed?

    Oopse! The scary thing is not whether or not these stereotypes are true--not used. Sorry!

    The scary thing is not whether or not these stereotypes are used, it is that these perceptions may be used to screen applicants at a job interview. Today a lot of 40+ women have long hair and it does not make us long for youth or have a misconceived notion of who we are. Maybe we are like you--discovered that we liked long, flowing locks when we were young and never changed. I like my hair long because I can wear a different style without having to go to the salon. I can French braid it, wear it in a bun , a pony tail, a French twist or just loose and flowing. How many people with short hair can say that?

    P.S. For those of you following this thread, the context of all of my remarks have been "Do whatever makes you feel good about yourself!". Short or long, permed or straight, gray or colored ... makes no difference.

    We are way past that, aren't we?

    @jeannedearc:

    What an inappropriate comment regarding my remarks! Your retort that folks should move to Saudia Arabia if they agree with the idea to dress like women (recognizing Bible verses where longer hairstyles are encouraged) shows that you don't know the Bible is Jewish in origin (Old Testament) and Christian (New Testament).

    In context with what I had written, I was simply recording that many women LIKE to dress in a feminine style, as encouraged in the Bible. This was passed down to women in the recorded verses to be in a classic, ladylike way, and that includes longer tresses to DISTINGUISH them more readily from their male counterparts and to encourage their femininity. In other words: Be proud of your femininity and in how you were created.

    You know, kinda the same themes that Excelle demonstrates. You don't have to look and dress like a man to get things done ... Likewise, if you choose to wear your hair short, that does not mean you are emancipated! Those who wish to wear their hair longer simply like to embrace their femininity (in the traditional dress), whether for themselves, or for the men in their lives who enjoy it as well!

    Many men actually complain that the first thing many women do once the chase is over (courtship ends, and marriage begins) is to cut their hair! (Many men prefer it to be longer, and enjoy this display of their wives' femininity).

    Viva la difference! (Regardless of age!)

    Nor will anyone hold it against you if you choose to wear yours short!

    Sheesh!

    This is the second time I'm reading this article..and honestly I was wishing this time around it wouldn't hit a nerve but it did! :( 'Dimitrius' OBVIOUSLY didn't know any single moms (like myself)! I have an adorable 2 year old but he came with this unpredictable pains / rewards program that I didn't sign up for but that is a whole another article, between him, home, cooking, bills, cleaning and delivering robust, integrated solutions @ work I barely think my "short hair" is all thanks to my insecurities and vanity! It works for me cause I can go crazy with my thinning sheers in the shower and come out with one less thing to worry about / spend $ on!! LOL. In my humble opinion, maybe what the author is saying might apply to young girls, still in their teens (I hope!), who are experimenting, finding them selves and depend on looks a great deal but for us ..and I feel I can safely (and sanely) speak for all us "career-minded" ladies that we take our selves and our responsibilities more seriously then our hair! When I need to make a statement...I do just that! I don't need a hairstyle to be my advocate.. ;)
