What Is YOUR Thought?

Hi Friends,

Here's just a quick Question

Below is my youngest son
Oh my, if you knew his story
You'd be in tears at how much God has worked in his life
And how much of a miracle it is
That he will be 30 in just a few weeks

Tonight I just have a question

He LOVES his long hair
I've gotten used to it
But I must admit I don't LOVE it the way he does

I have suggested that he get it trimmed a bit
But he is adamant that he doesn't want to cut it

He's been grown it for about 4 years

What is YOUR thought

It doesn't mean he'll do anything different with it
It just means: I'm asking the question

I'd love your honest opinion
Even if you don't think I want to hear it - LOL

I mean, he Is almost 30

OMGoodness - Where does the time go??

Sometime soon
Maybe his birthday
I'll share part of his story

Have a super Evening
I'm looking forward to reading your answers

Blessings to you all!


  1. My son had very long hair for years. It was who he was at that time. The sad thing was that when people looked at him they saw THE HAIR and not the wonderful person under it. I think it is great for musicians and others whose livelihood doesn't depend on a more conventional look.
    When my son got serious in the business world he cut his hair short and has not looked back...he was 30! lol
    Just love him as is--it is just hair and when he is ready someday maybe he can donate it to Locks of Love...or maybe he will keep it always! xo Diana

  2. First of all, I think a lot of woman and men would love to have a head of hair like his. If he will consider it, he might have it trimmed to where it is thick. My daughter has super long hair, and when it gets trimmed it gets cut to where it naturally looks even. I can see that natural length in the photo. It will look thicker as well as nice and neat. xoxo Su

  3. he could donate to Locks of Love--

    Locks of Love is devoted to helping every child suffering from medical hair loss, thus we do not discriminate as to the cause of hair loss. We list the following information in an attempt to explain types of hair loss and specific needs of individual recipients.

  4. It's NOT the length or style of hair, the clothes we wear, the car we drive or the house we live in. It's what's inside that counts.

    I have long hair and mostly wear it in a braid, and in the summer up on my head in a clip. I know a lot of ladies think I should get it cut, but I don't want to. I'm 66, hair is mostly silver.

    Your son does have beautiful hair.

    Last year I had about 6 inches cut off to even it up and nearly cried because of how short I felt my hair was. It was a shock. But it's down to the middle of my back, so not really short and the dead/split ends were cut off, it looks better being shaped.

    What does your son's long hair mean to him? What does it express for him as a person?

    You are a wonderful Mom to let him have his long beautiful hair for as long as he wants.


  5. I have found that hair is one of the most personal things about a person. I will be celebrating my seventieth birthday this year and most women my age have short hair. I have had short hair and I admit that it looks nice and is easy to care for, but whenever my hair is shorter that shoulder length, it just does feel right. Like I'm being what other people expect me to be, instead of being me.
    You asked . . . My opinion is let the boy (man) wear his hair the way he wants . . . it is such a minor thing to worry about. Hey, I didn't see any nose rings or tattoos . . . be thankful, it could be worst.

  6. My almost 36 year old son has LONG hair too! Most of the time he wears it in a long pony :) It is who is he at this time, it is just hair and it not our decision...

  7. Good Morning Cindy,
    First of all, WOW~ your son has gorgeous hair!! But to cut it short, he has to be ready, if ever, and it depends on the place in life he is right now. When it comes to that, there is no age limit. Long or short he is the same guy! Beautiful!
    Sending hugs your way!

  8. I personally like short hair on men. It sounds like you'll be lucky if he just gets it trimmed to make it vibrant and get the ends healthy...but a short cut...not in this world, it sounds like. LOL.

  9. I agree with some of the others, saying it's his hair, and he is an adult. My concern would be with how he cares for it -- does he keep it clean? Does he spend anytime in the kitchen around food prep -- long hair & food do not mix in my opinion. Maybe the suggestion of donating to "Locks of Love" would give him a purpose for cutting it short. Maybe he could be gently reminded of how good he would feel if he donated his hair and made someone feel better about themselves as they deal with catastrophic illnesses. In the end, it really has to be his decision.

  10. That's a hard question. I would let him make his own decision. If not, life could be miserable for awhile.
    It's his identity. He may get tired of it. Something he has control over.
    I do think he would look good with it shorter, but he's cute with it long.

  11. Cindy I sure do know where you are coming from having four children. If I could do it all over after they turned 18 I would just grin and smile. May be a new hat or some new leather bands to tie it back it's a real tough call. I hope others can give you better ideas than me.Hugs, Jo

  12. I think it depends on the reason he likes it long. Is it FOR himself or has he been idolizing someone with long hair? Do you feel he's hiding behind it? I prefer shorter hair on guys however if he's got it for the right reasons I'd say grin and bear it, if you think he's got it for the wrong reasons maybe try to persuade him to cut it.

  13. Hi Cindy,
    I think it should be up to your son on what he would love to do with his do!!!! He does have a beautiful head of hair. I know if he donates his locks it will help others but if not I think it tells a story about him. So which ever way he decides to go it looks great.

  14. Cindy,
    I was stopping by to thank you for your visit and I saw this post and wanted to comment on this post.
    We are ALL individuals and being different is what makes us who we are. If your son feels good about who he is and how he looks and his hair is part of that, then Kudos to him.
    When I first met my husband way back in 1977, Joe's hair was down past his shoulders where my hair was up to my ears!! Joe still likes to keep as much hair as he can get away with!! LOL! And he almost had a heart attack when my youngest son started having his head !! The opposite reaction than yours to your sons hair!! LOL!
    Both my sons now have their hair cut to the point that it looks like they have no or little hair and Joe cringes every time he sees them!!
    If your son is happy, then that is all that is important!



Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
