What does the length of your hair say about you? 16 Dec 2008
Does short  hair mean women doesn't want sex?

Former actress turned therapist, Dr Pamela Connolly recently suggested that having short hair may indicate that women don’t want sex any more. Hair has great social significance for human beings, and acts as an important indicator. It can denote power and status.  While long hair has suggested sex, short hair has often been seen as a mark of revolution.  So, what do our hairstyles really say about us?  Jane  is joined by the fashion historian, Caroline Cox, and Professor Stella Bruzzi.
