Subject: Nice compliment on my hair
Date Posted: August 30 2003 at 1:07am
Today I was at a local shopping mall with my ex-husband whom I still spend quite a bit of time with, and a man and a woman, about in their 30s, came up to me and my ex-husband, and the man said to me, "I really like your short hairstyle! You look great! I wish my wife would get her hair cut like that!" I have gotten compliments before but this was from a complete stranger who just approached me with his lady and his enthusiasim took me aback a little. I said thanks of course. Then his wife, who had sort of a mid-length hairstyle just above her shoulders, said, "Yeah, I really should try a short crop like that." Then she commented on my nose studs and earrings too,(I was wearing gold nose studs and a long pair of gold drop earrings), how she liked the jewelry. I was really flattered by these people!!! They were very sincere. It was very nice.


Just thought I would let you all know that there are people who really do appreciate ladies with hair as short as mine.


It is nice to be appreciated!!!

Great!
You are absolutely right in saying many people appreciate short crop hairdos on women. My wife recieves some nice looks and compliments too with her short hair style.
Your look is very attractive I'm sure, with the ear and nose jewelry and attractive pixie hairdo!
Good going lady!!!!!

Kuroneko. I guess the fact that not everyone does compliment you makes compliments special when they happen.

Thanks Brent. I like my look, so it was nice to get the compliment!

I wonder if that woman will get her hair cut real short?

Tina I usually am the first one to complement a woman I meet on thier hair but tend to refrain from complementing a total stranger on their hair... Just comes off as a come on from a single male....

But It was much easier when I had a girl with me....

Change is good for the soul and fun to talk about!

That sounds nice Tina. It is good to get such a compliment.
I get a compliment on my super-short afro once in a while from the people who love short hair on women or just people who like the look on me. I get compliments more often when I'm dressed up and wearing hoop or long earrings.

Yes Tony, it probably does seem less threatning to a woman if it is a man who is with a woman giving the compliment to another woman.

But then again the woman you are with might not like that, but that was not the case with the guy and woman who complimented me, they both seemed interested in my short hairstyle.

Its great to get unsolicited compliments like that!

I like to think I don't want or need anyone's approval when it comes to my hair but that said...... I expected my friends to say nice things about my hair when I got it cut whether they liked it or not but I was feeling sort of insecure about it so I didn't know if I believed them or not.......no matter I told myself its just great to have friends that are supportive.

When two of my friends decided to cut their hair short soon after seeing mine I knew they really did like it and I have to say it makes me love my short hair now. I guess I like peoples' approval more than I want to admit.

Thanks Tina for posting this.

On these boards, there is often a message that's there's something wrong with wanting/needing the approval of others or doing something trendy. The most important thing is to be happy with yourself, but it's okay to let other people influence you. That may make you insecure, but it's also a recognition you live on a planet with other people. I care what my friends and girlfriend think. Sometimes, they're smarter than I am. I know my girlfriend is. She tells me.

Making a decision only because of what other people tell you means you're not thinking for yourself. Ignoring what other people tell you is self-centered. Listening and taking good ideas is well-rounded.

Even if you don't need anyone's approval, sometimes it still feels good to hear compliments. So long as you're not helpless to make your own decisions without askign others, and you're not basing your decisions solely on what other people think, I guess you're all right.

first of all: i bet jasmin gets a lot of compiments about her very short hair, especially when she dresses up. jasmine, do u wear high-heeled platform sandals too? what do u prefer: skirts or pants?

i had my head shaved several times. i always got a lot of compliments. the complaints (much less than compliments) didn't bother me because i know that i look beautiful and sexy with a freshly shaved head. self-confidence is the best way to show the people how proud you are with your head shaved

You are braver than I am shinydome. I don't know if I'm quite ready to shave my head.
I have to admit, I have seen some bald women who do look stunning.
I guess I'll just stay with my short pixie for now. A half inch to an inch of hair is plenty short enough for me.

Shinydome:
You indeed do sound very brave and adventurous! A woman after my own heart.
My wife has also experimented with a shaved head. She still wears her hair very short. She looks great either way.

Tina,
I've seen you on the long and short hair boards. I know you like to come and visit us.. I was just curious to know how short your hair is. I think some people look better with short and vice versa, I personally just like long for myself!

Cya on the long board

Actually, I heard short hair makes your head look smaller, so if you think your head is big, short hair might actually help.

I disagree with u on that one.If u have a big head then very short close to the scalp cuts wouldnt be best 4 u because actually if u do have a big head your better off getting a long flowy cut with not 2 much volume just 2 take most of the focuse off of your head and with volume that brings your hair out more fulfilling that.
