There are some girls in my school who are re-inventing 80s hair. They're growing their hair out really long and then shaving one side. The result is long hair on one side, and 1/2" hair on the other side.
I'm not sure that I would do this, but man-oh-man it looks so awesome!!!
I'm having long hair envy lately.
I sometimes have dreams that I have long hair.
That I put my long hair into ponytails or buns or braids.
That I style my hair in a French twist for special events.
Growing my hair out would be a huge commitment. My hair is currently about 1.5" long and platinum blond.
The colour is fake - my natural colour is a homely, plain, mousy light brown.
If I were to grow my hair long, I would have to stop bleaching my hair out once a month (which damages it pretty badly). I would have to have darker hair, or at least darker than my natural hair colour.
I think that it would take me about 2.5 years to get my hair to a length that I would deem "long." If my hair grows 1/2" per month, that is 21" over 2.5 years.
With healthy trims in between, I would have an overall length of about 18".
It would flow down my back.
It would wave in the wind.
I could use a brush and make it shiny.

Would I love it? Absolutely!
Would it be a huge pain in the bum while it grows? Yup!
But most importantly, would I be able to run my fingers through it and twirl it?
