When my friend had her hair cut short she wasn't pleased with the result. She was going away to Australia for a year to study. Where she wanted to concentrate on studies and not date anyone. The conversation went something like this.
My hair looks awful.
It look good. Really.
No it doesn't.
You look beautiful.
I look terrible.
Look. You still look beautiful but you said you didn't want to date in Australia and I think the short hair will attract less guys because you stand out less. So it's a good thing.
She laughed... kind of. And forgave me eventually.
