My crowning glory is about an inch for a shoulder length, short for you, but not on me. This is the longest length my hair can grow comfortably, letting it grows more will just make it unmanageable due to fly-away. Plus my round as ever face would not match a longer hairdo and I am easily irritated when my hair stuck on my back and neck specially now that it is summer and I have no other choice, but to have it in ponytail or opt to trim it, I prepare the latter.
On certain occasion, I envy those girls who sport long beautiful hair and still feel comfortable. I wish I can have a HighHair experience too, but my hair won't allow it too even though I have natural brown, shiny and "bagsak "hair I don't have the patience on maintaining a long hairstyle.
