    Talking Interesting compliments, and comments on your hair by strangers

    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" .

    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. 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.

    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.
