Disclaimer! That being said, if getting surgery is something you want to do in order to change something about yourself that is your business. I have a friend with fake boobs, I have a few friends planning to get fake boobs, friends that tan, friends that have fake nails and have had laser hair removal. Currently I don't think that I would ever get a boob job or any kind of plastic surgery but I have no idea what is going to happen tomorrow so I try to never-say-never. I might all of a sudden want to make money by posing for sexy pictures, I'd be lying if I said I didn't like being in front of the camera - Hell I blog about my wardrobe, but tomorrow I might have different needs! Or I might get into a car accident that would scar my smile holder (my face!) or I could have a mastectomy because of the breast cancer history in my family and while doing so I would most likely put in a new set of round bouncy boobs?! You never know what your life is going to look like a year from now, your beauty journey is no different. My main point is that I feel bad that I ever would have ever thought "I'm not one of those girls" because now I am one of those girls and I realize that it is not a representation of my lack of confidence, not any more than putting on mascara or a form fitting dress is any way.
I could take this approach to explaining my decision to purchase hair pieces and clip them to my already existing hair:
The longer hair has purpose beyond vanity. It helps the photos for my outfit posts, being that I am a petite 5'0' the length helps me to appear taller and more proportional. The longer hair helps me appear closer to standard of beauty that fashion magazines and high end labels have laid out for our society to unhealthily embrace.
Recently I chopped a good three plus inches off of my hair and I had a slight panic when I realized my hair wasn't long enough to cover my nipples. (Admit it, it is a fairly normal thing to do after you get out of the shower.. cover your nipples with your long hair in the mirror?! Come on? Admit it? Yeah.. I'm the only one? Not a chance. Liars.)
The honest, to goodness truth, at it's core... FAKE HAIR IS FUN, it's one more way to outwardly express yourself.
It might be a little bit of the first two reasons but more importantly I THINK IT'S FUN and makes me feel more like myself, I've had long hair for pretty much my whole life. The most dramatic thing I have ever done to my hair was cut it all off to my chin right after at the beginning of my only semester of community college. I am as old as I have ever been and for once I really don't know what comes next, I am excited for the next chapters but also a bit of nostalgia is creeping up. If modern hair technology can make me feel more like my youthful self so that I can move forward with an extra swag in my strut than I'm in, judge if you will. I don't have time to care because I am doing a hair flip out the door.

Extensions. All three.
All my hair.

FYI, people (namely boys that are of interest to your heart) aren't neccesarily going to be overjoyed or turned on by this...
So if you are doing the long hair thing as a means of gaining attention from gentlemen..
"Hair extensions are the 'I Can't Believe It's Not Butter' of cosmetic products."
