Do you ever get upset when a female ...

Do you get upset when a female friend or relative cuts their long hair short?

I do. Every time. Even if it's a cute haircut. It still makes me secretly sad.

My 22 yr old niece just cut her long blonde hair very short (the only blonde in our entire family) and colored it auburn. I feel like I just lost my best friend.

And all you can say is "Oh, it's so cute! I love iiiit!!" (and it IS cute...she's beautiful)

Nope...can't say I've ever felt that way. Unless it looked bad and I felt sorry for them because of that. I know a my mom, dad and at least one cousin felt kind of that way when I cut my thick blond hair super short and dyed it dark when I was 17.
Why do you think you feel that way? Is it a femininity thing? Do you just prefer long hair and are sad to see it go? No judgment, just curious.

No not at all. It's just hair and always grows back

I do prefer long hair. But, I think it's a "Change" thing. I don't really like a major change in appearance. Women cutting long hair to me is a huge change. It's like giving up something really hard to get. Long beautiful hair is hard to achieve and I don't like it when they cut it off.

Nope - but I do feel bad for those who end up disliking their drastic changes. For the most part I love those around me trying new things, taking risks, & stepping outside of their comfort zones - they sure do beat the couple people I know who keep trying to rock outdated styles that make them look too old & lead strangers to perceive them as being out of the loop concerning just about everything (because they look the part).

I feel bad when they have all that hair and just throw it away. I grow my hair enough for the 10 inches then donate it and chop it off.

Yes and no. Normally I don't, b/c it is their hair and they can do whatever they want to with it. My SIL just chopped off her hair this week, and I did get upset at that. Only b/c her hair was SOOOO pretty, so long, smooth and shiny, and she only cut it b/c her pony tail holder got tangled in her hair. Rather than cut the holder, in her rage she cut her hair off above the holder. She then needed her friend to come even it out b/c it was all wonky in the back. I didn't say anything to her, though, other than "What did you do??" LMAO

I grow mine long and then chop it all off and donate it every couple of years.

It's hair it grows back ... and it's their hair not yours
