15 Very Good Reasons Not to Cut Your Hair ...


As a girl whoโ€™s had a pixie cut and a short, chic bob for the past five years, I can tell you: short hair rocks!

But in spite of all the compliments from other girls and the fact that even my grandmother approves, Iโ€™m growing my hair out again, with a semi-solemn vow to never, ever cut it all off again.


Here are a few very good reasons not to cut your hairโ€ฆ

1. It Wont Go Unnoticed

We'd love to hear from you!

If you're shy like I am and don't like attention, let me tell you, EVERYONE will notice your short hair cut.

From underhanded compliments to curious questions to flat out insults, no one will let you live.2

It's not fun when your hair is a personal thing, and many people cut it for deep emotional reasons, and people act like it was a crime to cut it, or ask you rude questions.

2. The Winter Chill

The Winter Chill

Most Michigan winters are brutally cold, and short hair means you feel every degree of that wind chill.

If youโ€™re a sissy about cold, like me, this is one of the most practical reason not to cut your hair.


2. The Bad-hair Day Options

The Bad-hair Day Options

Hats and hair-bands are the bad-hair day accessories we can all rely on, but a cute braid, ponytail or updo just isnโ€™t an option when you have short hair.2

My hair is naughty, very straight and unruly, so I have more bad-hair days than I care to count.

3. The Skip-a-day Option

The Skip-a-day Option

When you have short hair, you must wash and style it every single day, or it looks greasyโ€ฆ and even if it doesnโ€™t look dirty, oh, the bed head!

If you have longer hair, though, washing three times a week is good enough, and in fact, is good for preserving the condition and color of your hair!2
