Hi!

Context: I went to the barber earlier today and asked for a haircut with my hair to be left longer than usual.

Can I say:

I asked the barber to leave my hair longer.​
I asked the barber not to cut my hair very short.​
I left (or kept) my hair longer than usual.​
Thanks!

    A somewhat cryptic request! ;):D

    I would use the middle one, with a slight tweak:
    Please don’t cut my hair too short. I’d like it left a bit longer this time.

    Thank you for the reply! Sorry for not making it clear, but what I am after is the correct sentence when I am telling somebody else what haircut I got.

    I didn't cut my hair as short as usual.
    I asked the barber to leave my hair a little longer than usual.
