Every week at church I see short haired women come to church. I don’t understand it. Do they really think looking like a man is beautiful? They try to be fashionable and sassy but they look butch and manly. I see older women get short hair when they get grey as if that is what they are supposed to do. They think it is easier. I had short hair before….it is not easier. You have to get it cut more often and style it in the morning. Long hair makes me feel more feminine….but the short hair girl has to compensate with extra make-up and jewelry. Most make up with filled with chemical toxins! Why would Christian women want to emulate people without God, people who are gender confused, people who are obnoxious and abort their babies, women who work instead of taking care of a home and are submitting to their husbands. I don’t think it is pretty at all. I think it is rebellious because women get this look from the world.
Husbands, if your wife has short hair and you want to grow it long…most likely she has a personality to match because she thinks she has gender equality and power from her look. Try this and see if it works:
Him – “Honey, I miss your long hair. It was very beautiful.”
Her – “Are you saying you hate my hair and I don’t look beautiful?”
Him – “You will always be beautiful to me, sweetheart. I am only saying I miss your long beautiful hair. I like the way it felt and bounced and looked. I would love it if you grew it out for me. It would make me very happy.”
Her – “Maybe, this is so much easier and it doesn’t take a lot of shampoo.”
Him – “Yeah but the money you put into hair cuts can be put into shampoo and conditioner and I just think it was so pretty but do what you want.”
At this point she will think about it. It works extra well when she makes the decision to do it. LOL
People always ask me….what is considered long hair? If it touches your shoulder then it is long hair. Shoulder length or longer is nice. Keep it looking neat and brushed even if you are home most of the day. Pony tails and clips are awesome. Fixing your hair in the morning can take less than a minute. God made women special and different than men. The long hair is ultra beautiful and feminine no matter what age you are.
I just want to make one more comment about long hair. The bible says it is a shame for women to have shorn hair. It is not right for a Christian woman to have the look of a man or a rebellious woman with too much make-up. When I was looking for a church and I looked at websites first….always check the wives of the pastor. If they have short hair, pants, too much make-up…then they are not fully submissive godly women. Even worse is when a woman is a pastor or the dominate one. This is not the role of a Christian woman and if you are unmarried….your father is still over you and if your dad has passed, your older brother or uncle or adult son is the head of the home. Of course all goes well if it is a Christian home because women are not to be abused or are slaves in a Christian home. Honor your mother and father and take care of the women in the home and treat them WELL. See Proverbs 31.
1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
1 Corinthians 11:4 Every man praying or prophesying, having hishead covered, dishonoureth his head.
1 Corinthians 11:5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
1 Corinthians 11:6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
1 Corinthians 11:8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.
1 Corinthians 11:9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
1 Corinthians 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
1 Corinthians 11:11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 11:12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.
1 Corinthians 11:13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?
1 Corinthians 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
1 Corinthians 11:15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
1 Corinthians 11:16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
