I have long hair that I wear up tie back 97.86 % of the time and held with clips 1.23% of the time. Today I wore it down all the way and no clips. I didn’t really do anything with it just washed it and shook it out. I have a bit of natural wave towards the ends which are more than halfway down my back. If I fool with it too much it gets a bit bushy and I feel as though I look like a big ole mop. Several people commented, generally pleasant or at least neutral remarks such as, “Oh look you wore your hair down today.” or “You have great hair why don’t you wear it down more often.” or “Aren’t you hot with all that hair down?”
And this one, of which I am unsure how to take, “You’ve got hair just made for a caveman.”
This person has made remarks that I took as complimentary before, but after this most recent remark, now I am not so sure.
What do the Dopers think? Insult, compliment or neither?
