  I was a screaming mess whenever my parents tried to cut my hair when I  was little.  They finally gave up and my mother and I had  subsequent run-ins with hair barrettes, headbands, and Hair In Your  Face.  A decade or so later, my hair hangs past my knees and I'm  glad my mom had the patience to put up with my tantrums and insistance  that my hair must not be cut.  She's glad, too. :)

Wow, I'm impressed. I've never known anyone whose hair hangs below their knees before. I know there's a (fairly modern) fairy tale about a princess whose hair grows really long, but I can't remember what it's called.  (I thought it was George Macdonald's Light Princess, but I see it's not).
