7 Struggles All Girls With Long Hair Will Understand (As Told By Grey's Anatomy)

Long hair is great, but every great thing comes with its struggles. Who better to tell them than Grey's Anatomy?


To all of my long-haired (and even medium length) friends, isn't hair amazing? It's a personal accessory, custom-made (quite literally, thanks to biology), only for you. It can be curly, straight, wavy or a unique mix nestled in between. While hair is great, there are some things that all girls with long hair understand, struggles we regularly deal with. Everything is a give and take, and having long, flowing locks is no exception.

1. School Desks

I'm sitting in class getting ready for the day's lesson, and I want to check if I have my homework. When I lean over my folder, I feel a tug. Sigh. It's those silver knobs on the seats of school desks, and my hair is caught in them. Well, guess I needed a haircut anyway.

2. Tangles

I could be casually combing my hair or in a rush in the morning, and no matter what I do or how clean my hair is, there are tangles. And my hair is straight. I can only imagine how much harder it is for my curly-haired friends.

3. Everyone can see the oil

The longer my hair it is, the more obvious that I haven't washed it. There's no hiding anywhere.

4. Overheating

Any day that it's hot, I feel it. My head lets me know. The more hair I have, the more I turn into a human thermometer. Hair is an insulator all right.

5. Hair stylists don't understand the length you want

I asked for a half of an inch, and I walked out of there with a bowl-cut. Awesome. Fabulous. Just what I wanted.

6. The Touchers and Braiders

There's always somebody that wants to braid my hair and touch it when it's long. It's like I'm a mouse in an experiment.

7. Pixie Cut Envy

I love my long hair! Look how flowy and silky it is! But wait, that girl with the pixie cut looks so fashion-forward and empowered. Should I? Maybe...

There it is: six struggles all girls with long hair will understand, as told by the lovely Grey's Anatomy. How many of these could you relate to?

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
