I'm a 16 year old girl. I wear braids because I like long hair but don't want to spend too much time on maintenance (such as with weaves, so I don't wear weaves). My natural hair is about 2 inches away from my shoulder, and I feel happy with the way I look with natural hair. However, a lot of boys my age have said they prefer girls with long hair. One guy also told me that he was going to ask me out when I had long hair, but said I was no longer 'hot' with my short hair, but more 'cute' (I know, what a weird thing to say). I like braids because they are easy to maintain and long, but I'm considering going back to my shorter natural hair. Personally, I was happier with my natural hair and thought it suited my face better than with braids.
Which one should I opt for?
You should very well rock your natural hair! Don't get into the habit of trying to impress others..especially boys. It's a very hard habit to break.
Focus on you and the things you enjoy...so if you are Happy with your natural hair...ROCK ON YOUNG LADY!
