Reasons You Should Get A Short Haircut


Cutting your hair is hard. It’s even harder to make a dramatic change. Perhaps you think of short hair and wince remembering the time you had a tragic haircut. Or perhaps you are looking in the mirror and imagine what your hair would look like short. The key to short hair is finding the right style for you. With summer coming up, why not try a new hairstyle? If you are thinking about cutting your hair, but are on the fence, here are some reasons why you should call up your stylist for the big chop.

Hair Grows Back

It’s cliché, but so many of us forget that hair grows back. If you have long hair, a dramatic cut won’t mean that you can never have long hair again. It’ll grow back before you know it. Just give it a couple of months and you will be back to normal. Getting a haircut isn’t the end of the world. If you feel less than satisfied with your new do, talk to your stylist about your options. Perhaps you haven’t found the right style or need to play with it for a little longer. You’ll live the rest of your life not knowing if you don’t give it a shot now.

It’s Empowering

In the 1920’s, flappers began chopping their lengths into short bobs. Women began to exert their independence from their previously determined role in society, taking control over their own lives and expressing it through their hair. A haircut is just that powerful. There is something about feeling the adrenaline coursing through you while sitting in the salon chair waiting for 5 inches to fall on the floor. It’s exciting too. You no longer have to feel like you’re in a rut styling the same look every day. Don’t be afraid to switch up your style. By looking at your hair cut as an exhilarating experience rather than through an anxious or negative lens, it makes the whole experience that much more empowering. You will leave the chair feeling fresh, confident, and brand new.

Your Hair Will Look Healthier

We are not saying your hair looks bad now. Sometimes you can hold a style for so long that your ends start to look stringy and thin. No one likes split ends. Not only are they annoying, but they cause your hair to get so knotted and tangled that even brushing your hair is a hassle. A chop may be what your hair needs to look healthier, thicker, and fuller. Cutting your hair will also make your hair healthier and grow faster. With a shortcut and a break from the heating tools, you can say goodbye to split ends for a long time and hello to your gorgeous new hair.


Short hair is easier to keep up with on a day-to-day basis. You will use significantly less product and spend less time in the shower, making room for the more important things in your morning routine, like a second cup of coffee. That being said, short hair can be hard to style at first. Long hair can be braided, thrown into a ponytail or tied in a low bun. Short hair can still be styled in creative ways and you can still pull out the curling iron or straightener. In fact, once you get the hang of a few styles, styling your hair will take about half the time as it did when it was long. Ask your stylist for hairstyle recommendations. Taking your lifestyle into account, they can teach you how to style it so you feel confident every day.

You’ll Feel And Look Great

If you are open to changing up your style, you may find you feel more like yourself or are just as comfortable with your new haircut as your old look. You’ll feel powerful everytime you step out of your home because you know you look amazing with your new hairstyle. You may have had the thought that long hair was the epitome of feminity and attractiveness engrained in your head, but any style can be attractive as long as you feel great in it. Cutting your hair can boost your confidence and make you feel more independent. You no longer have a shield of long hair to hide behind, giving more focus to you and your face. By owning your new haircut, your new confidence will be felt by all those around you.
