No need to apologize! Just wanted you to know how much you were missed. Shanazel
Humpf! And I grew mine out at age 38, and I love it. When I took up Belly Dancing at age 40, I had long hair to swirl about!There are those that think one should not have long hair if one is over 35, but I just think that is silly. As my hair is growing I am loving my hair and I plan on keeping it, including when I round 40 and 50 and 60 and so on.
:lol::lol: Yes, I've noticed my husband getting a little irritated lately in bed. We cuddle spoon-style, and since it's been so hot, we keep a fan running at night, which causes my ultra-wild, curly-frizzy hair to blow up his nose...:lol: But I think he likes my hair long. I cut my own hair ultra-short in my late 30's, and it was fun for a while, but it was waaay too high-maintenance to keep up with. My hair grows fast, so in less than two weeks, a cute sassy 'do starts looking bushy. Plus, I missed my long hair, so I grew it back out.My hair is very long, too, and I love to wear it down when I dance. Most of the time I pull it back in front, but let it flow in back. My husband says it's another "veil"!
Ah, you know what they say: Men grow more conservative with age, women more outrageous. Or something like that.Whenever I picture myself as woman in her 70s and 80s it's always with waist length grey hair, wearing strings of beads and a hemp t-shirt. I think it is because I grew up thinking there was some kind of law that older women had to have short, short hair and be ultra conservative. I was born a hippie, I'm at uni to become a professional hippie, and I'll die a hippie!...
I think I need to find me a man who is getting more conservative!! Mine says 'do what you want with your hair' but then cringes at the cost everytime I go to the hairstylist!!Ah, you know what they say: Men grow more conservative with age, women more outrageous. Or something like that.
Yes, I'm a crop-top too. I danced flamenco before I danced belly dance, and struggled for ages with long hair - which didn't suit me and was a lot of work! In the end, I decided it was crazy to be unhappy with my hair all week, for the sake of the one or two hours a week I was performing. So I cut it all off, and bought a fake bun.Any other short haired dancers out there? What do you do with it for performances?
