I do, in fact, have a philosophy regarding hair. My hair is very long, and any time I muse about cutting it, I usually get reactions of shock and horror from any guys around. And I've heard of guys who became very angry when their girlfriends suddenly showed up with short hair. (No doubt the reverse has also occurred.) Not to mention SOs--and parents!--who are extremely firm about "I don't like your hair up" or "Don't dye your hair." My philosophy (and reply) is this: If you want to dictate how I wear my hair, then it's your responsibility to wash, cut, and style it. In the meantime, back off.
