Shorter hairstyles are back in vogue with celebrities like Kristen Stewart and Katy Perry recently leading the trend. Don’t get us wrong here, we love long locks, but there is a time when a woman should have an opportunity to explore and experiment with a new look. A short look!
Here’s why you should cut your hair short and why you are going to just love it:
- Shorter hair leads to healthier hair
No studies prove that cutting your hair makes it grow faster. However, cutting off the split-ends regularly or giving yourself a nice short haircut does lead to a healthier head of hair. That’s why we recommend going short, even if it’s just for a season.
- Longer hair weighs you down
If you have long hair and want to have it curled, your hair will probably weigh down from the roots and will not hold as well as it would on a shorter haircut. Shorter hair is lighter, which means your curls or wave will be more effective and bouncy.
Sitting in front of the mirror for over an hour, or more, while your boyfriend is pestering you to hurry up, is an irritating time for everyone concerned. The truth is, longer hair takes more time. Short hair on the other hand just requires a bit of product, quick finger manoeuvres here and there, and you’re done!
Just think of all the hair products you have bought in only the last month. Shampoos, conditioners, cleansing balms, and much more. With short hair, the amount you will need to use will be so minimal that you’ll end up saving on all your hair products. Having short hair is a real money and time saver.
- New tools to play with
Your flat iron straightener or your hair dryer…the list can go on and on—but simply put, you can put them in the drawer for a season without having to use them. Your next set of tools are much simpler: your hands, gel, wax or hairspray and a comb. It doesn’t get more simple than that.
With these reasons in mind, going short might be the next best thing you do. And remember, it will grow back. So, if you think you’ve made the biggest mistake of your life, don’t worry. Try the new look! What we do recommend is that you visit a professional hairdresser that specialises in short haircuts. Oh, and just a warning…be ready for a lot of looks and winks coming your way!
