Trouble with Short Hair

Dear Highlights,
My friend and I have short hair. Another girl at school says we look like boys, and it makes us feel bad. What should I do?
Maura, Vermont

The next time this girl says something about your hair, you might calmly let her know how her comments make you feel. You might say “I’ll wear my hair in a way that makes me happy, and you wear your hair in a way that makes you happy.” Then, change the subject. If you don’t react in an angry way, perhaps the two of you can move on.

It may help to remember that we often feel our best when we choose a style that is comfortable and true to ourselves. We hope you’ll continue to choose your haircut and style based on what you feel is right for you.
