Exactly. Prior to about 1920 and the "bob", every
woman had long hair.   Even fine thinnies like me.
they wore it up most of the time, I'm sure.  Even
older ladies had long hair.  I'ts funny when you
think that now you can't have long hair because
you're "too old, to short, to gray, hair too thin",ect.
what did THOSE ladies do.  And men have worn their
hair long at different times in history.  Remember
Absalom in the old testament, with his long thick hair?
when I was in high school, guys had real long hair
Some of them)but now it's universal short.  Remember
the "hair bands" of the 80's?  sorry I'm rambling.
I agree most T.V. is garbage these days, with a few
notable exceptions.

Vive la coiffure vintage!

I can't wait until my hair is long enough to do a Gibson, I adore that soft, poofy Edwardian look.

I'm sure that one day, fantastically long hair will be the rage again. Probably once we develop pills that will grow hair an inch overnight!  Grin  Shocked Today the world is smaller, cultures overlap, and there is so much more variety that I doubt if one trend will sweep the world as it did as recently as 100 years ago. Back then, society was more restrictive and there was less deviation from the norm. Nowadays, you see crew cuts, floor-length hair and every length (and colour) in between. Variety is the spice of life!

Being able to choose your hairstyle is much more important than having the "style of day".  During the times when all women had long hair, they did not have any choice.  At least today, we can pick our hairstyle, be it short or long and will not be an outcast for our choice.

That's true, I'm glad we have the choice to go short or
long today.  It seems that there is more variety even
now than there was 10-20 years ago.  Now it seems
that you can pretty much wear your hair how you want,
curly, straight, long, short, ect and I think that's good.

Yes! I remember Absalom. In fact, he was well known for his beautiful long hair...which he shaved once a year because it was so "heavy upon his head" and it weighed "two hundred shekels".  That is nearly 5lbs!! Can you imagine growing that much hair a YEAR?

Hate the shows for the hair and for the attitude in general, so I avoid them, grrrr.

BUT - I really think semi long is back, like lower bra strap to waist.  I sure see a lot of it where I live, on all ages too ... yippppeeeee
