    Toke you look gorgeous in long hair, pls don’t listen to the haters that want you to go short hair. You are young, fabulous and long hair is sexy on you. That short hair makes you look like an old woman for real, pls rock the hair that makes you feel sexy, l know you feel sexy in long hair. You are one gorgeous woman, don’t change you for anyone.

    • Madam the Madam

      April 4, 2013 at 2:20 am

      How exactly is it hating that some people prefer her with short hair? I’m sure you’re a typical example of someone who has imaginary haters. Abeg shift.
