Why Wives Should Not Cut Their Hair Short


Ladies, here is the simple reason why wives should not cut their hair short.  As men, WE WILL LIE TO YOU!!

Let’s face it sometimes you are in a rut, sometimes you are so busy taking care of the kids that keeping your hair looking good becomes a burden.  But no matter what whims you have as you sit in the salon, the only response cutting inches of hair off that won’t get a man killed is to say they like it.  Especially when we have no warning of the event prior.

The truth.  Most prefer longer hair.  When you cut it short, men see that as one step closer to you having the mom haircut and then THEIR mom haircut where the hair keeps getting shorter in the back and taller on top.  You know what I am talking about.

Thankfully my wife prefers her hair long and doesn’t have those whims because as she ages she sees her longer hair as  keeping her younger looking.   Now there is too long where you are just trying too hard too. haha

(psst.  BTW, I have to keep my hair the way she likes it cut in return).

What do you think?

    I do not like short hair but my husband complains my hair is too long sometimes.

    I get my hair cut…
    I come home.
    I shave it.
    All the way down.
    Ah, all better.
    I feel great!
    Solution to “hair” problem: Don’t ask someone else’s opinion on how your hair is cut. If you like it, it’s great!

    My wife tried the short-short hair style once, she looked like her brother w/ bouncy breasts. I wasn’t having any of that. I worked out those confusing thoughts in college! [wink]

    I have not had my hair short since my mother made me cut it into a pixie cut when I was 12 years old. I WILL NEVER be one of those ladies with the Mom haircut! The closest I have come is a bob – where your hair is cut slightly above your shoulders, but is still long. I will be one of those old ladies with a BUN instead!

    My mom is actually bald and wears some really cute wigs.

    Sorry guys, there comes an age when a woman’s hair thins out too much to wear it long. That’s why so many older ladies cut it off and try to poof it up on top. It is the woman’s version of the comb-over.

    • Dawn as I said, bald can be badass.

      I know there are women who can’t keep long hair for reasons you described. Then again my mom has a thick head of hair and she still chooses to do the poof. haha

    Now you got me pondering why women fantasize about men with long hair…
    Ever notice the front cover to ANY romance novel???

    My hair is short and has been for years and years and will continue to be. Old women do not need long hair. I also know that most men prefer long hair.

    Have a fabulous day. 🙂

    personal preference for sure – I like short hair but of course there is much more to looks than the hair. Also, looks and words can make a huge difference in how we respond.

    • I think it has to do more with making a drastic change in yourself without warning your partner than the actual cutting of the hair.

      It would be like me coming home with a big arm tattoo. My wife would be like WTF.

  10. It’s far more that I’m USED to it a certain way. After a day or so I can’t imagine it another way.

    I’m with you on this one Bearman. My wife has cut it short a few times but I just voice my thoughts about. She hasn’t cut it short in years.

    I just tell her that there is going to come a day when she will have to cut it short because most old woman don’t look that great with long hair.

    • I beg to differ. I have seen plenty of older women who look great with longer hair. NOT asscheeks long but close to the shoulder.

      What does she say about your hair? haha

  12. Deb says:

    My hair has been growing out. Hubby loves it.

  13. Tony McGurk says:

    I don’t like short hair on women either. My wife always cuts hers short but I prefer it long. Why, why do they insist on doing it??? She kicks up a fuss if I grow a beard but my objections to short hair go ignored. Maybe it’s time for that beard…

    BTW I went to the toilet after dinner tonight for a reasonable sized poo & when I wiped my bum I got a clean wipe. I immediately thought of your Clean Wipe cartoon but when I went there the comments seem to be closed. There was a Leave A Comment link but when I clicked it nothing happened. Just wanted you to know I was thinking of you while I was on the loo

    • Tell her every time she gets her hair cut you stop shaving.

      I decided to close comments after 100 days automatically so I reduce the amount of spam that gets through. Glad to know you thought of me when you were in the bathroom. eww wait!!

  14. G.B. Miller says:

    Due to personal issues from long ago, my wife has to have short hair. Having said that, I find that long hair on women can be a very sensual/sexual turn-on.

    • Yes. there are personal issues and just hair issues as someone mentioned where the hair just thins and it doesn’t work long. Those are way out of control of anyone.

  15. Binky says:

    i prefer short fur.

  16. There have been times I cut my hair so short you would wonder what I was thinking. I once took in the cover of an Annie Lennox album where she had her hair 1/4 in long all over her head and bright orange and told them that was what I wanted. I love it. It was my favourite cut ever. Over the years I have fluctuated between long and short until I had chemo. I didn’t think it would bother me to be bald but it did. I think because it was not my choice. After that I kept my hair long. My husband met me with long hair and had never seen me with short hair. One day I just got the urge again and came home with short hair. His response, “It’s about time!”. I was shocked. He loves short hair. The shorter the better. Now he is always trying to get me to cut it when I want to grow it out. He’s weird.
