You're Short of Time

Get a good cut, and short hair can be really practical. It's so easy to style, and dries really quickly. You won't need to use a hairdryer most times, and if you do it will take moments to dry. Short hair can be ideal for women who are very sporty, and busy moms who don't have much time to wash and style their hair.


It's Just Too Hot for Long Hair!

If you live in a country with hot summers or where it's hot all year round, it can feel like it's just too hot for long hair! Cutting your hair short makes your head feel so much lighter, and when it's hot it's a relief not to have longer hair, which makes you feel sweaty! You also won't have to keep tying your hair up to feel cooler.



Shorter hair is just so practical. It's quick and easy to style, easy to look after when traveling, and you don't need to pin it up to get it out of the way. You'll also use less shampoo, may not even need to use conditioner, and can fix it in place with just a little product.


You Always End up Pulling Your Hair into a Ponytail

Do you always end up pulling your hair back into a ponytail, either to keep it out of the way or because you don't know what else to do with it? Then cutting your hair short may be for you. Ponytails can look stylish, but when they become your default style for lack of ideas there doesn't seem much point in having your hair long!


You Really Need a Change of Image

If you really feel like you need a change of image, then it could be the perfect moment to go for the chop. A shorter cut can make you look completely different and transform your looks more than you ever thought possible. It may actually be a lot more flattering than long hair is on you.

I love my short hair

Really be certain this is what you want to do!!!! Just because of a bad hair day/week doesn't suggest you should cut your hair off. Just think, if you hate it, you will have to go thru the growing out phases. If your sure and you found some great pictures with YOUR hair texture!

I love my short hair it's a pixie cut so easy to maintain

I'm thinking about cutting my hair shorter; it's time to begin a new chapter in my life, and I think a new hairstyle will give me a brand new perspective!

I've had 3 different bobs, and 2 pixies. Guess what? It always grows back. I now have bust length hair, but I don't regret any of my short cuts. It's just hair.

No way lov mu long hair.

I have no problem with short. It can be fun.

I've decided to cut my hair shorter about 3 weeks ago and honestly I don't regret it at all! Having shorter hair is much easier and you can wear it down everyday and not get bored of it, where with long hair you have to come up with different hairstyle nearly everyday. If you are thinking about getting short hair, do it!

Sorry sorry ! Had it cut very short into a pixie . That way nobody really kept expressing surprise and irritating respected remarks " oh you've cut your hair ! "

I'm not ready to cut my hair yet. Maybe when I'm 40 ;-)
