I have a question about hair length, as mentioned by Saint Paul in the book of I Corinthians. I’d just like to start with a little background information. I have had an eating disorder (anorexia with bulimic tendencies) for the last three years. My hair has fallen out several times as a result of starvation, and I keep it in a pixie cut in order to keep it looking nice and healthy. If I grow it out, it looks quite shaggy, fried, and broken. I know that Saint Paul mentioned that women should have long hair as a covering in order to please their spiritual head (their husband). Does this still apply to Christians today, or was it merely a custom of the time? If the woman is not married or is in my situation, is short hair permissible? I’m just curious because I want to please God with my outer appearance, but this particular passage has me confused and bothered.
Thank you very much for your time, and God bless.
