I really like it short because it is kind of like an afro and it is easier to take care of, but it looks really pretty long and I can put it in a ponytail and do all kinds of things with it, but it is harder to take care of and it loses the curl a little bit. It is a few inches longer than when I cut it last. I like it both ways. You can kind of see it on my page. That was about a month ago.
