Short Hair… Really Short Hair…
Apparently short hair isn’t for “mom’s” anymore! One after the other, some of our favorite celeb’s have been cutting their hair short, and by short I mean boy short. This is a big deal! Short hair speaks volumes. It radiates confidence and sex appeal if worn right.
I’ve always loved it when a client sits in my salon chair, and slightly dabbles with the idea of chopping their hair off. I’ll never do it until I know they are ready, and sometimes that takes years until we reach the HELL YEAH moment and chop away! This isn’t something you do on a whim people. Hair is security for a lot of women, and even cutting it above your shoulders can make you feel a bit vulnerable. Once you cut above your neck you have nothing more to hide. This all being said, this can be a powerful, exhilarating change, and if you’re itching to do it, chat with your stylist and be sure they think it’s a good idea for you.
2 things to consider- hair texture and face shape. Last thing you want to do is chop your hair off and have it be more high maintenance than your long hair. A haircut is meant to accentuate the good in your face and neck, so be sure going short will do just that. Here are some before & after pictures of celebrities who have recently gone from long to short. Which is your favorite? And who looks better with long or short?
Moral of this hair story, if you want to cut off your hair, take some time to think about it first. You may want to get your partners opinion too. I’m always on the fence with how I feel about this, because I think you should be able to do whatever you want with your hair, BUT you don’t want to give them a heart attack. Maybe as you’re inching into doing it, slowly prepare them for it too. Worse case scenario, if you hate your new short style and don’t want to wait for it to grow out, you can get hair extensions!
