My hair is so long that it goes down to my butt.:P It hasn't really made it hard to make friends, but I think a lot of people talk behind my back. Also people stare a lot. My mom made me start growing it long when I was about seven. At first it didn't really bug me, but now it's so long that I can sit on it, and I can't do anything with it except for a low ponytail or a braid. Thankfully my mom said it would be okay if I got it trimmed!:) My friend and neighbour will probably do it for me.

Wow, will the subject I never thought of to be a subject on a forum... haircuts has to take the cake! I guess I don't get the big deal, cut your hair or don't why would it matter? Must be a cultural thing I have no concept of.

You guyz are all mad.. Our own gurus and many sikhs sacrificed their lives for the kesh, they accepted to get their heads chopped off but not hair. You guyz just bcoz of girls and all that stuff are going away from the worlds best religion the Sikhism, be proud to be sikh, and have proud to be turbaned.
When thousands of people in modern countries like USA convert to Sikhism, why can't you guyz maintain Sikhi, shame on you guyz for starting this topic.
First get to know why we have unshorn hair we have it bcoz it is a symbol of acceptance of god's will and it also gives a unique identity to the sikhs. The sikh looks more beautiful in this form.
Shame on you guyz on one hand our sikhs ate fighting for turban in western countries on the other hand you mad people are cutting hair.

Not cutting hair also gives the internal strength to overcome difficult situations in life.

i was going through this forum, some say sikh guys generally don't get girls. well i would like to share my experience. i wanted to cut my hair, not because of any girl but coz of general inconvenience they cause. headaches, maintaining hairs, issues while playing sports, time consuming, hairfall etc. when i asked my mom, she was furious and abused me alot. even my sister made a big issue. instead of listening about my problems she made big issue about her problem and told me how irresponsible i am. well i didn't cut my hair. but now when we are looking for boys for my sister, she said she doesn't want to marry a sardar.To be honest i really feel betrayed and cheated. and this is a common story. some of my cousin sister also preferred clean shaven guys over sardar. just want to convey that where sikh guys just carry a great burden in their life, they get betrayed by their own girls. I seriously hope my sister atleat marries a sikh instead of non-sikh. even when i tried dating, forget about other girls,sikh girls neglected me and preferred Monas over me. well it seems most of the beautifull girls are not choosing sikh guys. its actually not fair but i feel punjabis are much better looking when compared to others which sikh girls are choosing. well for me, i have accepted the fact that i won't be able to marry a beautiful girl but i hope i get a nice girl. anyway just one more aspect of haircut i wanted to share.

I belong to a sikh family and I am 19 years old. I live with my sister (Taran) and brother in law (Pulkit) as I am studying while my parents are in chandigarh. My Brother in law belongs to a non sikh family as it was my sister's love marraige. I had never in my life felt the need for a haircut until I came to delhi 2 years back. First of all the people around me are all non sikhs and moreover the ones who are sikh are the ones who have had their haircut including my sister.The second reason was the volume of my hair were so much that it was difficult for me even to set them before tying a turban and my beard was longer and it covers almost all my face. I looked 35 at the age of 19. I love to swim but my long hair were a problem for me.Even Pulkit's family members teased my looks especially his younger brother sushant, but pukit had a soft corner for me. I had discussed getting a haircut casually with taran and pulkit. They both left the decision on me whether to cut the hair or not, but told me that they would support me whatever my decision be. I consulted my friends and all of them encouraged me for a haircut. Even pulkit later on told me to get a haircut as even told me the advantages of getting it done. He told me that a person is not loved more by god if he has hair, earlier it was the need of time when people kept hair but now its not the fashion. He made me feel good and even narrated some stories of haircut of his friend and the changes in their life after the cut. It was yesterday when I told pulkit about my decision to get my hair cut off. He was happy for me and told me to decide the haircut I want to have and search the same over the internet, he helped me to choose the right one. I tied a patka and went with pulkit to a saloon he generally visited which was nearby. The barber made me sit comfortably, removed my patka, unlocked my topknot and unfurled my hair which were long and thick. Then he tied my hair and knitted a braid of my hair, took a scissor and sliced it through the tied hair just below the neckline. The very next moment my head was feeling light and the hair reached upto my cheeks. Then he sprayed my hair with water and made partitions and started cutting them in lots. The front hair ct was the most cherished one as he snipped the tips off the locks of hair curled up on my forehead and the feeling was nice. Once it was done he gelled the hair and gave a clean look to my hair. Then he took a scissors and trimmed my beard and even used the electric shaver as it was too dense and thick. Then he applied a shaving foam and shaved off my beard. Then he shaped the sideburns and applied a nice after shave lotion. When I saw myself after this makeove I was almost looking like a 19 years old boy. I moved out proudly out of the saloon and literally felt very light and also felt the air moving thought the hair. I kept touching my trimmed hair on my head, short hair at my neckline and my smooth cheeks, it was really great.
The shower I took at my home was awesome. Now I get ready in just 5 mins and it saves a lot of time. It was all becoz of Pulkit's support that I was able to do so, his younger brother sushant alwys teased my serd looks but yesterday he also complimed my new makeover. My parents were furious when I told them about it, but pulkit made them understand but there were very angry and didnt wanted to either talk to me or see me.I was very upset yesterday but again pulkit came to my rescue and made me feel happy, took me for a drive and we had lunch outside and then in the evening went to the gurudwara which I was feeling reluctent to go inside but pulkit took me with him, which made me gain some confidence. Later on we also went to a shiv mandir where pulkit always used to go on saturdays. I really felt very nice.

Usual short fabricated story repeated earlier too. Purpose to encourage teenagers to Motivate hair Cutting. BARBAR means in HINDI BAR BAR means AGAIN and AGAIN. If you cut your hair or shave you are required to repeat the act again and again wasting time energy and money. What a boring and thankless repeat after few initial feelings of parental or religeous revolts. Do what ever you like but do not become tamasha here. Most of stories are fake as identies are also fake. Away from Truth Away from Almighty

LOL, you can't get girls because of you as a person, your personality. Not because of your kesh. You are just looking for an excuse to cut yout hair. Even after you do it, you still won't get anyone. You will still suck at talking to girls, and you are most likely skinny pingla boys who can't do any sports. You make all these claims saying it is scientific. BULLSHIT, you just want to cut it. I have never had any of these troubles. When I look in the mirror, I see people who died rather than giving up thier beliefs, I see the image of Guru Gobind Singh, I see the history and traditions of my people. Cut your hair. The kaum doesn't need people like this.

HERE IS MY STORY:
I moved to Bangalore from Punjab 6 months back for a job. Coming from a traditional sikh family i found this town a quite modern one.I was the only lady in the entire company with braided hair who used to Wear salwar kameez and used to be like an odd women out.My friends used to make fun of me.After spending 3months in my new new job I took the most difficult decision of my life ,To cut my hair.Being a sikh I have never been to a beauty parlour and had no such prior exoerience.So I took one of my friends along who is an ultra modern short haired girl from Bangalore itself.She took me to her favourite hair dresser and simple told him to give a very short wedge cut.
I was quite excited but once the hairdresser took my hair in his hand my legs started shaking and I wanted to get up and leave the place.My friend held my hand and forced me to sit.Then the hairdresser loosened up my braided hair, combed and started cutting.In half an hours time my entire hair was gone and I was left with a very short mushroom cut,which suited me brilliantly since I have a straight hair.
I felt very low for first few days and was ashamed of going to office due to the changed look.I took a leave for few days ,but then finally went to office.I was the shocked at the kind of response I got,everybody was going gaga over my new hair style.
I felt extremely happy and have decided to keep my hair short permanently.
Now I have become a pucca city girl and have started wearing western clothes in line with my hairstyle.I have also picke up the smoking habit from my boyfriend who actually initiated to smoking and i him so much that he has changed my life and took out the best out of me
Why did you start smoking?!?

@Nisha Singh:- It is an appreciative gesture on your part to share your story in a true manner. I am sure that you are now well versed in the short hair ways and love it as you have stated.How did your fmaily recat back home? This is not what you have mentioned. How did you overcome the initial shyness. I am sure you love the cleaning up and the ftreshness after every haircut. But the smoking I do not understand! If your boyfrined has initialed you into smoking is it for love sake or getting to be urbanized and modern?
Smoking has its health hazards and I would prefer that you actually refrain from smoking and try and get your boyfriend out of it too.
Congrats for the hairtcut and keep posting more stories of your firends who are into the haircutting stream. And for Jas the question is important: why did you take to smoking?

Old habbits die hard. Nothing new, old story presented/revived again. At least it is recognised by Anti sikh that uncut hair are barrier to Smoking and gateway to good health.

Wow, another religion running your life hey if that's the way you want it, good for you. But that's why I don't have anything to do with any organized religion! Don't get me wrong, I know God but there is a difference between the Lord God creator, and religion which is a man-made invention! And I have yet to see a man-made invention that gets it right, and doesn't cause trouble between different groups of people. Dude cut your hair and ditch the turban. That has nothing to do with God!

Sikhs should not cut or trim any hair on their body. There was this young boy in England who was Sikh and he had made up a story that racists shaved his head. There was a big uproar within the Sikh community but later the boy admired that he had his head shaved. What a big shame he brought to the sikhs and wasted everyone's time.
