About This Quiz

For some of us, getting a haircut can be an anxiety-producing experience, and it is the especially the case for people with longer hair. Usually, for people with shorter hair, a trip to the salon involves only a few inches cut off after a wash in the case of a new style, and even less if it's for a quick trim. For long-haired individuals, the hair is cut in sections and it can take a very long time. If there is a misstep, instead of only a few weeks' worth of growth, it could take months or even years to regrow the hair to its previous length.  

Caring for long hair can be just as much as a chore as it is to maintain a shorter 'do. The long-haired person will use brushes to make the shapes that help their tresses look voluminous and desirable. Round brushes, when combined with a blow dryer, will create curls of various sizes. When used with a blow dryer, a paddle brush can remove kinks and give a sleek and effortless look.
