I had long hair for years, and I seldom received feedback on my hair. I cut my hair short, and suddenly, I am the recipient of unsolicited comments about my hairstyle. I won’t complain about the compliments. It’s the critical innuendo and occasional blatant disapproval, especially in the professional setting, that infuriates me.
