The Cons of Long Hair

The Cons of Long Hairstyles - Summer Fall 2009 Hair Edition

While long hair is the 'in' thing for many women especially and is often seen as a sign of good health with the majority of the community raving it, there can still be certain disadvantages that are associated with it.

The Cons of Long Hairstyles

While long hair may be beautiful and can be styled in many different ways, it must be said that it requires a lot more time and effort to care and maintain it in order for it to be attractive. Comparatively, short hair is easy to maintain – even if you are late for school/work/meeting, you won't need to spend an incessant amount of time to comb, brush or style it. One of the main cons of having long hair is that if you do not care for it, it can turn out to be really ugly. When you run into situations such as that, do remember that you read it here!

Long hair takes a LONG time to grow (no pun intended there!). If you are only starting to grow your hair long, you may find that it takes almost forever to reach first to your bottom of the ears, neck then shoulders. Many tend to give up along the way and just choose to go for hair extensions instead.

One of the more well known cons of long hair is that they are more accident-prone. There are many instances where freak accidents have occurred for those with really long hair such as having it get caught in the fan blowers, vacuum cleaners, car doors, drawers and so on.

While having long hair comes with these cons, you will have to look at both sides of the coin to weigh it out yourselves.

Katie Holmes Bob Hairstyles - Summer Fall 2009

Katie Holmes Bob haircuts over the years have been one of the hottest conversations in the fashion world, especially when she decided to wear the “pob” hairstyle invented by Victoria Beckham.

Katie Holmes Bob Hairstyles

There are numerous celebrities choosing to style their hair in the face-flattering chin-length bob that Katie wore in 2008. The classic bob hairstyle has seen plenty of variations and today this hairstyle is worn cut shorter in the back, with the longer chin length sections of hair in the front. The shape of Katie Holmes face makes it perfect for the bob haircut, which is very much like the idealized flapper image of the “Roaring Twenties.” Beside the precision cut, what makes this hairstyle work so well for her is the hair color that’s used. Although highlighting is a popular styling trend, solid colors work best in this haircut.
Katie Holmes has experimented with several bob haircuts and looks great in every style, which is a credit to the versatility of it; it suits most hair and face types. While she looked elegant in the classic bob, the angled, razor cut bob accented her sex appeal, giving her a little bit dangerous look.

Longer Hairstyles For Men

Longer Hairstyles For Men - Summer Fall 2009 Hair Ideas

For longer locks of the male persuasion, many men have made this style a growing trend. Santiago Cabrera and Ace Young have recently been seen with wavy to curly long locks to stand in line for. Here are a few ideas on how to get these looks at home.
Ace Young was seen at the Grammy’s wearing his hair to his shoulders in a wavy long style. To get this at home, simply start with wet hair and begin with a strong holding mousse, wax and hairspray. Apply the mousse between your palms and then use the palms to distribute the mousse through the hair evenly. Start at the roots and work your way out to the ends, and this will help to give the roots a boost of body. Scrunch the hair between palms and fingers starting at the ends, and working towards the scalp. This will help to build the waves you are looking for, even if you have straight hair. Part the hair at the natural part with a wide toothed comb, for a natural look. Finish up with a light mist of hairspray to hold in place.
Santiago Cabrera

Santiago Cabrera’s look was seen at the TV Land Awards, and he used his natural curls to create a look that so many women swoon over. To begin with, the hair should be damp.

Medium Length Hairstyles

Medium Length Hairstyles - Paula Abdul's Hair

Women in the spotlight such as Paula Abdul have been wearing style breaking medium hairstyles for decades, and making them a beautiful addition to starlets everywhere. Here are a few ideas on how to recreate the wavy medium hairstyle that Paula wore on Fox in 2008.
Paula Abdul's Hair Medium Length Hairstyle

To create the wavy medium hairstyle Paula wears normally, hot rollers and a hair dryer are required as well as mousse, smoothing shine and lacquer or wax. This style is great for women with oval or diamond shaped faces, as this creates a frame around the face. To begin, the hair should be wet, and apply the mousse throughout the hair evenly. Distribute the mousse through with a round brush to have an even application. Place the hot rollers into the hair starting at the ends, carefully wrapping ends inside the first complete layer of hair. Roll up the entire head, and then blow dry. This should take about a half an hour to complete including the styling. Remove the rollers, and tousle the curls with fingers only and apply wax between the palms of your hands to distribute over the curls as you go.
For the straight medium hairstyle sported on Fox, wet or dry hair can be used. A straightening balm or wax and smoothing shine serum should be applied prior to beginning. Use a straightening iron on the entire head, working through pieces about 1 inch wide until the entire head is done. At the roots, apply hairspray while holding the hair up, so as to give lift and body.

In certain instances, the definition of long hair differs between cultures or inter-culture in itself.

How Long is Long Hair

Women are generally more inclined to have long hair as opposed to men. Women with long hair is often considered to be feminine while short-haired women are seen as masculine. For a start, women with hair up to their chin may be considered as having short hair in certain cultures while in other cultures, men with that very same hair-length is said to have long hair.
In certain religions such as Sikh, it is a must for men to don their hair long and keep it under a turban. The hair length can go as long as to the waist when released and thus, it is considered to be a 'norm' in that particular culture and religion. However, despite everything that has been said, surveys have shown that the it is generally accepted that shoulder-length hair is considered to be long; for both women and men alike. Still, what really constitutes long hair is a question that will always be open to debate.
