I got my haircut about a week ago. I usually get my haircut at significant events or dates. Like, waiting until the school year was over. It's a matter of consolidating big changes.
My hair was long enough to pull back into a ponytail. The two types of comments I get are- 1. "looks better" or 2. "you shouldn't have cut it" - usually along those lines. The interesting part is more often than not the two sides correspond with the commenter's political alignment. Right or Left, respectively. People who usually have a neutral comment are people who keep their politics to themselves.
