Q: What should you do if your husband doesn’t let you cut your hair?

Denise’s Answer: Thank you for your question! Of course, I can’t tell you what to do, but I can tell you that some people have the ability to grow long hair, and it’s beautiful! Whenever I see women with long hair, I always admire them because when I tried to grow my hair long, it would always get too frizzy. So if you have long, beautiful hair, be thankful for that! And be thankful that your husband notices. The Bible tells us as wives, we should honor our husbands (see Ephesians 5:22)! Personally, I try to honor my husband with how I dress. I ask his opinion when I am choosing what to wear. Sometimes, I even give him little fashion shows! I will try on a few outfits and ask, “What do you think about this one? Or what about this outfit?” It’s fun, and I’m honoring my husband at the same time. I actually consider it an honor to wear an outfit that he likes because I’m pleasing him. Ephesians 5:33 says, “Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.” So if your husband prefers your hair long, I wouldn’t take it as an offense — I would take it as a compliment! Keeping your hair long is a form of honoring your husband, just like the Bible says. I hope this encourages you and answers your question!
