That's the more serious side of my joke comment about clippers... intermediate length hair is such a maintenance nightmare.
When I've had long hair, it's manageable. Put it up and forget it. When it's really long, I just plaited it and left it... added benefit that a plait sits flat under a bike helmet. Granted, it's harder for a girl, with social pressure to do something other than a straight back ponytail every day, but at least it's an option if nothing else works.
Very short (or no) hair... obviously easy.
In between, I just can't do. I'm now about 5 years into this short hair phase... I've tried growing it out a bit, but I keep cracking the sads and reverting to the #0 clippers.
Now I'm getting older and my forehead keeps getting longer
I don't think long hair is an option any more. So I'm kind of locked into being a skinhead for at least another 20 years until I can pull off the "burnt out old hippy" look.
I don't think hair that's too short to tie up is easily compatible with an active lifestyle. At least, not for somebody as pathologically lazy as I am.
