okay, so... I have hair just past my waist, and have for most of my life. I got a really bad short haircut when I was in college and living in an apartment without air conditioning in Baltimore City. It was a bad choice based on advice from a hairdresser who told me that my hair, which had light waves when it was long would be curly if it were cut short. When I got the cut it was stick straight and I looked like Liza Minnelli until it grew out and. I have never cut it significantly since. People occasionally ask me if it was hard to grow it or how long it took, but I don't really know how long it took because it's always been long, and it wasn't difficult to grow it, as all I had to do was stop cutting it. When people ask if it takes longer to care for long hair I have to tell them honestly that it doesn't. Having long hair enables me to jump in the shower, wash it (with shampoo and conditioner from the drugstore, comb it out, and I can leave the house without having to blow dry it, style it, etc. it also saves me a lot on haircuts and "product". When I learned recently that my sister spends between 140 and 160 dollars at the hairdresser every month, I was grateful to have that money in my pocket instead. I did see a video of Jessa Duggar styling Jill's hair, which seemed relatively straightforward, using an inexpensive curling iron and a $4 bottle of Aussie hairspray. I actually considered trying it myself, since it looked so simple to do. Unfortunately, I could find neither the hairspray they recommended nor the curling iron they were using at Walmart, which is where they said they'd gotten them. Now, as far as the Duggars are concerned, part of the modesty dictate suggests that a young lady should be attracting attention toward her countenance (face). This is done buy the modest application of cosmetics, the Duggar hairstyle, and by wearing bright colors complementary to one's skin tone close to the face, to draw attention up and away from the sinful body parts. This can also be accomplished by the use of neck scarves, short necklaces, short (not dangly) earrings, & a big dopey smile.
