"I have naturally curly hair, and when I arrived at kindergarten my hair was short, with curls. All of the other curls had long, pretty, straight hair. So I decided to grow my hair out so I'd fit in. Three years later, I'd actually managed to grow it long. But then that year everyone cut their hair short. Even trying to be in, I was out, so I never tried again. It's been long ever since."
