About This Quiz

Hair is an enormously personal thing, and not just because it grows out of the top of your enormously personal head. Hair has been imbued with all sorts of meaning throughout different cultures. It's about fashion, sure, but it's also about personality, style, and how you present yourself in the wider culture.

Certain types of hair have been favored at different times, sometimes for reasons that make sense - for example, all those big wigs came into fashion in the 1700's because a lot of people had syphilis, and their hair fell out (seriously). Sometimes it was for reasons that are frankly really shameful - for example, some companies still insist on using dress codes that prohibit natural African hairstyles like locs and rolls, though this is changing now.

Ideally, though, hair would be free of all that baggage, and each of us would appreciate our own unique beauty and feel free to do whatever we darn well want (subject to what our God-given mane will agree to do). That means that if we want to go long, we can go long. If we want a fabulous 'fro, then dammit, that's what we should have. If we're all about the sexy bob, so be it. 

Of course, which of these we choose means we'll have to deal with the attendant advantages and problems. From a cold head due to shearing everything off Furiosa-style, to getting your Rapunzel tresses caught in everything (and constantly blocking up the drain), whatever your 'do, you have experienced a whole lot of related do's and don'ts. Tell us about them, and we'll figure out exactly how you're styling that beautiful crown of yours!
