I've had long hair and I've had short hair. Back in High School and college my hair would get as long as my profile pic before I entered the real world and had to look like a normal human being. Short hair is a lot easier to manage, you use less shampoo, spend less time in the shower, and you don't have to deal with your hair getting everywhere.
My hair is really weird. It's extremely thick but the left and right side are completely different. The right side grows into a cartoonish mess of edges while the left stays flat. That said, long hair. It feels and looks nice
