What interesting compliments or comments do you got by strangers about your hair, cause you have long hair?

so i start:
1. next to a construction a worker whistled after me, cause he thinked i am a girl because i have long hair, and he have only seen me from back, i heard as an other worker said "you idiot, it was a man" :D.

2. More times(i say four or more times) happend when child ask parent about me, the little children think men have short hair, women have long, so i heard many times from a child asking his/her parent about i am a woman?

3. One woman at a store always ask me to sell my hair to her for extension, i always must sad her about it, cause i will never cut it :).

4. Some months ago at a bus stop two girl started to ask me about my hair, how much time was to grow it, how long i would grow it etc.

5. On way to workplace a gypsy woman had said to his son "look what long hair that boy have", and the boy confirmed it "yes it is really long".

I once had someone come up to me on the sidewalk outside my work and ask me if I was interested in selling my hair. He was very polite and left after I told him I wasn't interested, so it wasn't creepy. I took it as a great compliment!

The only comment I ever got from a stranger was similar. I was at a voting place and a small child asked her mother if I was a boy because my hair was so short at the time. Her mother told her to hush and told her I was a girl. :D Other than that, no strangers have commented on my long hair at all.

Yes, if somebody need our hair, or envy for it, it can be a great compliment :)

My hair isn't super long or anything (although some people think it's pretty long) but it's very thick. So a lot of people look at me with big eyes and ask if it's all my hair and how long it takes for me to do my hair. Or they'll ask me when I'm going to cut it.

I don't get strange compliments, just lovely ones, telling me that my hair is lovely/beautiful/there is so much of it.
I do get people asking me if it is all my own though which is strange, but understandle seeing the increasing of extensions theses days!

I wear my hair in a bun everyday at work (I'm an art teacher) and I took it down for the first time to take our faculty pictures. It was at waist... and several of my coworkers commented on how LONG and beautiful my hair was.. as they had no idea... and asked me to wear it down more often.

The first time my students saw it down they were also thrown aback.. "OMG! You have long hair!" I told them that I was stunned by their powers of observation and quickly reinvented my usual bun into place. LOL

I like how they all enjoyed seeing my little "secret"

People often asked "Is that all your own hair?" and I'd smile and say "Yes!"

When I was wearing a crown lace braid someone asked "Does your hair go all the way down to the floor?" I replied: "How I wish!"

I'd also get the usual questions: how long, do you have headaches with all that hair? Have you ever cut it? How did you get that shine?

The nicest comment I ever received was at the George Michael salon in NYC when my stylist said I was very handy with my hair..and would I consider applying for a job with them. I was very flattered but had to turn them down.

Every single time I wear my hair down, people around the office ask 'Did you cut your hair'?
Makes no sense to me :) My hair is already short, and I rarely wear it down, so people aren't seeing it every day. If anything it should look a little longer maybe? But whatever, I just say Yes, I did, and move on...

The best compliments I got:

1. A few years ago a gypsy woman who had extremely thick classic length braid told me my hair was nice. :)

2. Last summer I went shopping with my mom and the shopkeeper was a middle-aged woman. She wore a huge braided bun. I was thinking about how long her hair was when she came to me and asked what I used on my hair because it was so shiny. :D

3. In September I escorted my aunt to the hairdresser. While she was dying her hair I was sitting in a chair watching. The hairdresser suddenly came to me and stared at my hair. She was shocked and made a lot of compliments. :D

You should take it as a compliment!!!.. as an extension wearer myself I have to confess I see people with beautiful hair and think to myself "I would love to have their hair for my extensions".. (and not everyone with long hair qualifies for this.. long hair does not always mean beautiful hair) :)

Little old ladies in particular seem enthralled with my hair... younger folks seem to be brainwashed in the "flat-iron it straight" mode, but older ladies seem fascinated with the curls, remembering how they used to sleep in curlers every night to try to achieve what God gave me naturally.

OrangeStripe

1. All the old people who come into my work and compliment my braid, and once or twice tell me to never cut it :)
2 The single time I went to the hairdresser to get my hair done for the 6th year formal, I was hiding my hair down the back of my shirt, and when the stylist pulled it out, she spent the first 5 minutes just staring at it trying to work out how she could put it up. All the way through, she would stop and get confused because she couldn't work properly with so much. :D

I had very short hair when it was still mostly uncommon for girls so I used to get asked all the time why I would do that to myself. I would also get lots of insulting comments from my peers about my sexuality, but that's another story. I did used to get lots of little old ladies coming up to me and saying I looked like a flapper. :D Those were fun.

well this certainly wasn't a compliment, but it comes under comments: when I was 12 I had my hair shaved (long story) and twice in one day I was mistaken for being a boy... and I was wearing a bright pink jumper with a floral neckline :S
The first was at the zoo in the room where they kept the butterflies. I was standing there, hands in my pockets, and this woman pointed at the butterfly flying near me and said to her baby 'look at that butterfly near that boy'. latter I was sewing while waiting for my mum in the car, and a group of kids coming from school were walking past and one guy said something about me and the other was like "that's a girl u idiot" lol. Back then I wanted to die of mortification that boys had mistaken me for a guy, now I think it's hilarious! Especially that now when people haven't seen me in a while but they knew me when my hair was short/shaved always comment on how long my hair is getting :) That's the real perk of growing my hair long: people contrast it to when it was short. Makes me feel much better about my length now :)

Strangers mostly comment on the color and/or ask how long it is when it's down. Then they want to tell me all about their hair care routine.

I did have a friend once who made me promise that if I ever cut my hair I was to give it to her for her weave.

Older women often tell me they used to have long hair like mine when they were younger, and they always have a fond look on their faces.

I had a rather rude comment way back when when I used to henna asking "is it red all over". I didn't answer, because of course, the answer was no! :eek:

I've worked at my current job for 3 months now, and so far I only had my hair down once at work. There is one woman who always comments on my bun styles, and she is also the only person to make a comment the one day I wore it down! She is always very complimentary. She asks me often if my styles take a long time, or if I've had someone do my hair for me that day. As if! The only person I see in the morning before work is my boyfriend, and he can't even make an English braid! Ha ha. People assume that LHC-type hairdos are complicated to make, when most are very easy and quick.

My male co-worker often comments on my hairsticks - "You have sharp things coming out of your head again." LOL!

Really, I never would of have noticed I liked getting compliments untill I read this here. This topic only made me question if I ever did, and for as far as I can remember I did get one last week! Usually I wear my hair in a japanese knot. Most people call me "The Ninja" or "Sumo". I don't mind, but last weak I was wearing my hair loose. I got a new job for about 2 months, and till last week I had my hair in a knot, so at work they had never seen the full length of my hair, and a lady walked up to me last week saying that I had awesome hair and that she would love it if I had my hair loose more often. I guesst that's a great compliment right? haha.

November 15th, 2010, 06:32 PM
Last hair comment I received was at work a few months ago when it was loose and wavy - someone called it "wild hair" and made booming noises. Thus began my "wear hair up every day at work" experiment. It was all in good fun but I'd much rather they comment on my work, not my hair.

November 15th, 2010, 06:57 PM
Weirdest comment was two women at a shop, talking together about me - pretending I wouldn't be able to hear them, or what ?? Anyway, the one told "oh but it MUST be extensions !" in a quite condescending, nasty tone. although I usually do not reply to anything not precisely directed at me, this time I had to, and since at the moment I was quite bitter on my hair's not so good condition, all I thought of saying was something like " well I'd hope some extensions would have less split ends and be in better condition, hah !". That was stupid of me, but it closed her mouth down anyway.

Usually mmy hair is wet when I get to school (I'm pretty lazy but thats just me) An one day my friend said "would you please stop that!" and I asked what she was talking about and she said "Letting your hair air dry it makes me so angry because I spend hours making mine do what yours does on its own!" She is a very close friend and I nkow she didn't mean that in a mean way so it made me smile!

This is a fun thread! My surprise comment was, "Is that hair all yours"(question mark) But the best was I went to pick up my bike after a tune up. The owner was acting a little weird and finally he blurted out, "Will you make me a promise~Please don't ever cut your hair!" "It is incredible and so unusual in this day and age". He was cute. Several weeks later he called me for a date. Very flattering. No, I said I wasn't ready to date, in case you wondered.

Macaroni
November 15th, 2010, 11:01 PM
Over the years I'm received occasional comments such as: "Is that all yours?",
"How long is your hair", "Does it take a long time to put your hair up?".

I haven't heard a nasty or rude comment yet but I'm sure there are a few people out there who don't like my hair :).

Two small NED type girls coming up to me and asking if the crown braid I was wearing was all my own hair, and how I put it up like that. So unexpected comng from them, and the wonder in their eyes when I said it was all mine :D

A friend once said, 'Hair always looks so boring when it's just... there. Hair never has any 'wow' to it without any style. It looks like you don't care about your appearance.'

I was shocked! Surely long beautiful hair shows that you really DO care about your appearance?Hair like that, that is truly beautiful, as you all know takes a lot of dedication. To me, hair that looks like everyone elses is 'boring'. Everyone seems to have a fringe/bangs, with millions of layers, bleached, dyed hair, and usually no longer than APL.. *sigh*

I sometimes get comments on how dark my hair is, which is odd - I don't think that just the fact that my hair is dark is so unusual. I do get comments on the length (positive usually) when I let it down after dance, mostly because I almost always have it in a bun for class, so some people are surprised to see how long it is.

I work in a convenience store, and I get a lot of customers complimenting the color. (I henna my hair.) I had one guy ask me how I got it this color and I told him that I use henna and he asked me to write it down, because his wife always wanted this color.

"whisper whisper nudge whisper gesture whisper"

I get this from time to time, usually on the bus, as people try to nerve themselves to say something, usually when I am messing with my hair, if I am preening it, and finish with quickly putting it into a bun, that is the prompt for either the "wow!" or the approach or comment. It is kind of cute...kids tend to be more forthright though.

Heh...noticing people catching themselves staring.

* "Your hair is just beautiful - do you mind if I touch it?"
... or they just touch it without asking for my permission.
* "Are you wearing extensions? Your hair can't possibly be real." Looks like I have impossible hair.
* Directly quoting my friend: "doesn't it go into the toilet when you go to the bathroom?"


People always ask me how long it took to grow too of course.

I wear my hair up, so the most common question is the "how long IS your hair?" routine. I suspect that some of my acquaintances may wonder why I don't cut my hair, but they are too polite or afraid (o: to ask.

One girl, said she used to have long hair (after the "most common question"), but she said she likes to "fix" it. I assume that means we don't do anything to our hair? I just let it pass! (o:

I would have to agree with you Avvoltoio, I also like it when someone else plays with my hair :)

I guess the weirdest compliment I used to get was when I was a child, People used to scold my mom for "highlighting" my hair (It has natural blond streaks...) because they ewre outraged to see her colouring my hair :)

Huh, the only time I can recall someone asking to touch my hair was from a guy in a psychiatric facility. Usually people just go ahead and touch it if they want to, and then they try to be all sly about it.

I usually also get the "how long have you been growing your hair" questions, to which I always answer, "I don't remember, sometime around birth."

I was with my DH visiting friends who have a little toddler. We were playing with the child, and my DH was stroking my hair. The boy asked "can I do it too?" I thought he meant something to do with the game we were playing, and I said yes, so the boy started stroking my hair. It was so incrediblly sweet, especially that he asked permission!

They always say those things.

Answers: we wash it with water. Like everyone else.

Yes, we can brush and braid our own hair. Who knew?

The really silly one I get asked: No, I don't spend a fortune on shampoo. I have long hair, not a big scalp. Shampoo is for the scalp. No matter how long my hair grows it will not affect how much I use. Now, try asking about conditioner. That's a different matter!

What a sweet thread :)

Hmm I got a few comments at my old job. I worked as a cashier in a hardware store in a...not exactly bad neighborhood but let's say, hardworking part of town. So not a place with a lot of femininity.

One man would come in several times a week, always in a hurry, but as he rushed past me to get into the store he would always say to me "Nice braid!" without stopping, whenever I was wearing an English braid.

Every once in a while I would wear a French braid to work and on one occasion the head cashier (a woman nearing retirement age) asked me, "You don't do your braids yourself...do you?" Not in an insulting way but more she was impressed. She said, "It's so straight and even! I used to do French braids for my nieces when they were young but even then they would come out crooked, I couldn't imagine doing it in back of my own head!" I was pretty pleased with myself that day!

I only started on LHC a year ago and even though I've had long hair pretty much all my life, at that time I had never learned how to put my hair up, I couldn't even do an English braid that well! So within a few months I had mastered nice even English braids, and learned to do my own French braids and other styles so I was really proud that someone noticed. :)

And a different day not too long after that a customer said to me "Did you do that yourself? I've tried but it always comes out with the braid sitting on top." So I explained to her briefly about how it makes a difference whether you cross the strands over or under and I think in the end she said it was all too complicated for her but she thought it was really neat that I could do it.

Odd though I haven't really gotten any hair comments at my new job yet although when I was wearing my new hairstick last week with a dangle (not something you see around here!) I got a lot of comments on that :)

One time I was sitting in a hotel restaurant in Morocco with my hair hanging over the back of my chair, and a man who worked there came up behind me, gently grabbed most of my hair with both hands, and lifted it up and started kissing it while complimenting me in Arabic. In retrospect I suppose it was flattering, but at the time I was so confused that I couldn't think of anything to say but thanks.

I always get people making comments about how I must spend a fortune on shampoo, and I love how horrified they all look when I tell them I use Suave.

I've also had people ask if my hair is real, and that I could use it to strangle someone, which was a bit creepy.

I get the nicest comments from the old ladies, too, as several people have mentioned. I work in care, and a few of my regulars are really fascinated by my updos - "do you do your hair yourself?" and suchlike - I never have my hair "down" at work. On the rare occasion I wear a braid, I really get some attention!

I've just remembered an elderly Irish nun I used to care for. She was a temperamental and fussy little thing, and I used to intentionally wear my hair in a braid when I went to see her because she loved it so much that it distracted her and put her in a lovely mood. One of her many bizarre compliments included that having such long hair should make me strong and healthy! (My hair was barely waistlength at the time, and I assure you it didn't!)

Years ago, when I was getting my second ever salon cut (my mother always cut my hair, up until I was about 11-12), the stylist told me "Never dye your hair, you've got a great colour." It made me blush at the time :)

About 2 or 3 weeks ago, a (male) stranger approached me and asked how long my hair was (it was in a cinnamon bun). He said that he doesn't usually see buns with more than one coil. This made me smile - I don't usually get to discuss hair with men!

I was at a friend's art studio for an afternoon of dance lessons, talking, hooping, eating, etc. Unusually, I wore my hair down. When it came time for the dance lesson, I whipped it up into an infinity bun.

As I was getting it into place, the instructor kind-of narrated "Blue_nant puts up her mile-long hair!"

Such a nice thread. :) A few days ago I was cashiering, (I don't do it as much different position at work) and one of my regulars came in. He is an American Indian and he said "There is my braid girl!" His braids are amazing. I was so happy he thought my braid was nice.
The stock boys are obsessed with my using 2 hair sticks. One is just wrong because you always get 2 chopsticks. :D They crack me up. One of them insists I never cut my hair.

Someone once commented that it was amazing “all that hair” could go up in such a small bun. Uhm? Usually people comment how big my buns are?

:confused:

LOL, that does sound pretty interesting. Did she seem embarrassed after she said it? Sometimes, I admit, I will say things that just pop into my head before my self-censoring can kick in.:o

If that was the case, she was probably kicking herself on the way home. Saying, "Oh my God! I can't believe that fell out of my mouth, I am such a goob. Darkmartin probably thinks I am a stalker now."

Or...
Or........
Maybe, she DOES want to use your hair as a blanket.;)

Last week when I dropped into the supermarket for some milk, I realised as I was approaching the front doors that I'd forgotten the green bags and asked hubby if he would mind going back to the car to get them. When he found me again, he said a lady pulled him up as he turned back to the car and told him that his "wife and daughter's hair looks so lovely with all the ribbons and things in it". Mine was just braided and wrapped into a cinna bun with a head band, my daughters was braided with ribbons weaved into it. It made my day and I think hubby was pretty chuffed as well.

This wasn't by a stranger, but it was still odd - my husband said my hair "doesn't look so stressed out," and looks "more like hair now." I guess my new care for it is showing.

When I dyed my hair rainbow in 2009, the rumors went flying that "a rainbow-haired girl was in JDHS. Who is she?" Anyway, after one of my classes, one person passed me, looked at me and said, "Skittles: wear the rainbow!" I just broke out laughing and told some friends in sixth period. They joined in the laughing with me, but now I never hear the end of it.

i find men with long hair to be attractive, so even though those compliments were amusing. i think i can tell if someone is a man or woman whether they have long hair or not. its called being observant and really looking ( and i dont mean staring, just mean like attempt to have a conversation with the person or say hello) , not just glancing and guessing

Actually no she didnt. She seemed fairly comfortable being flirtatious to tell you the truth. :D
She didnt strike me as the kind of girl that would regret having said what she did. So I asked her if she was cold....she said yes. I then commenced to pour the hot chocolate I was drinking over her head. lol.....

I kid.... ;) "DarkMARTIN" is used to that sort of thing by now....http://i618.photobucket.com/albums/tt267/DARKMARTIAN/Smilies/smile-9.gif

Don't know if this counts, but while I was helping my 5-yr old out of the tub last night he said, "Mommy! You are HAIRY!!" LOL... he meant that I have a lot of hair, but the way he said it (and the look on his face after he said it) was so funny!

When I was younger people used to always ask me if my hair was dyed or a weave. I have natural red hair. Guess it just has that bottled look, but at least they said the color was pretty. Best hair compliment ever: I tossed my hair over a bus seat one day and my friend told be is was a cascade of beautiful red curls. :) Still makes me smile even though it's been years.

Well, my compliments have run the gamut from:

"Is that all your hair?!!!" (when I was wearing my 12 mini multi braided braid, to

"It looks like you're wearing a shawl" to

many years ago while visiting Yosemite, someone behind me at an open air church service whispered "Cousin ITT!!!". I smiled to myself because to my way o thinkin', Cousin Itt had a gorgeous head of thick, beautiful hair!

When someone meets me for the first time, the first thing they say is always about my hair! Sometimes it's nice having people talking about your hair, but many times, when they ask you the typical "Aren't you ever going to cut it?'", it's a bit of a pain in the neck, actually...:(

The girls in my class often compliment my hair, they say it is so long, so shiny and so dark...i'm the only girl who has tailbone length hair in the school...in fact, i have never seen someone with longer hair in my country...

I don't have any comments about me but a couple of months ago I was talking about one of my uni tutors who always has her hair in a plait wrapped round her head and my male friend (who's in my class) said "you mean the one who wears a hat" he thought her hair was a hat lol I thought this was hilarious it doesn't look like a hat at all!

I love the "how do you wash your hair!?" question XD I usually answer "well, I generally use shampooo... followed by conditioner... oh, and there's some rinsing involved here and there... ... how do you wash yours?" Acting like I have no idea what they mean haha

My favorite comment (I've already mentioned it on LHC before) was when I was in a craft store buying fake flowers & leaves, and wearing a flowy dress and I feel a little *tug tug* on my hair, which was down & in braid waves. I turned to look and see a little girl in a shopping cart staring up at me and she asks "are you a farie?" Her mother was mortified that he'd pulled my hair and whisked her away apologising profusely and reprimanding her. I wish she'd given me a chance to respond, I would've leaned in and whispered "close... I'm a mermaid!" But they were gone too quickly :/ I imagine I must've looked funny standing there with my mouth open hugging a bundle of artificial flowers! Haha

Well the guy who sort of complimented my hair last night wasn't actually a total stranger. I was having a bar night with my friend and her friends (who I met for the firs time, but who weren't strangers after that :) ) and at some point I was sitting in this one guys lap. I wore my hair half up half down and the guy asked if he could play with my hair... First time someone has asked :D
Because I'm not so into him I replied that I didn't let anybody actually play my hair (which isn't quite true, but still) :)

Today I went to the (local chain second hand store) with friends in hopes of a "two-dollar Thursday" score, but I saw myself in the window on the way in and was a bit nervous about being a disheveled longhair in public. I had been too tired today to detangle my hair and bun it and last night's braid was slowly falling out from the top, and was so feathered it splayed outward by at least eight inches on my shoulder and looked awfully tangly, so I just took the braid down. As I was doing so, one of the cashiers complimented green Holy Clothing dress, which made me feel a little better about things. I gave it a cursory finger comb and proceeded to try to avoid every hanger in the store.

First while looking at skirts on lady came up to me and said, "Oh my gosh, look at that hair! It's just like my sister's, well one sister, the other has hair all over out to here! *miming with hands and making coiling motions with her fingers* but not long. Oh, your dress is nice, there was one like it over here! You look like a hippy so I bet you'd like it." (It was two sizes too small, and only vaguely anything like my dress, but a sweet thought.)

Later I was crossing the store with my friend and turned to comment on something to Snuggles, who I thought was following right behind us. A teenaged or early twenty-something woman stops dead in her tracks behind (now in front of) me and turns red. "Sorry-- just... your hair is so long! It was mesmerizing me and I got distracted. It's really cool!"

We ended up not catching anything on the two dollar color tag, but one friend got an incredibly gorgeous, new with original $150 pricetag, evening gown that fits like a glove for a tenth of the original cost. :D

It was a good day to be out.
