I posted this same thing on yahoo answers - why, I don't know. I regret asking anything there about 95% of the time. I got Answer 1. "I think short hair is chin length or above. Yours is to your shoulders so you're good. Don't worry about it." (Note: I never said my hair was shoulder length. I said it has been shoulder length. It's about an inch above my chin now.) Answer 2. Gross.
