Is Femininity defined by the length of your hair?

I did a study on this a few years ago, and it is incredible as to how many men and women, believe that being a woman, is defined by long hair.

People underestimate the true meaning and connection that we have with our hair. It is a part of how we express ourselves, and how we want the self to be presented. It captures your personality and identity, and reflects where you are in your life at that moment in time.

I agree. A lot of our identity and life experiences, lies within the strands of our hair. However, the notion of it determining your femininity and aesthetic appeal, is complete bullshit (excuse my swearing). I know men, that will not go anywhere near women with short hair, as that makes it is impossible to be feminine or attractive. Unfortunately, it is how we were raised. We grow up believing that boys have short hair, and girls have long hair, and that is that. Any change that we need in the gender roles and expectations of today, can only be done through socialisation. Simple.

The most outrageous of these is the pixie trim, a hair style so short that it looks like a kid's hair style. Famous people like Emma Watson and Anne Hathaway stunned the world when they hacked their hair short, and a fast Google look uncovers innumerable advisers for how to get the ideal pixie for your face shape.

I personally love the pixie cut, I just don't have the courage to cut my hair that short. If I don't like it, I am going to be stuck with it for quite some time. It is odd that we all put so much emphasis on it..it is just hair, it will grow back?

No. That's silly. I do things to my hair because I want to make a change. I can hack it really short or get extensions the next. It's just hair. It will grow back. It's the confidence that can make a really bad haircut seem not that bad. Haha.

My hair has always been medium or long. I've never really cut it short because I don't think it suits me and I don't think I can get away with it. Femininity has nothing to do with it. It's knowing what looks good on you.
