Hair Style – 8 Fantastic Reasons to Get A Short Hair Cut
I chopped my hair off this birthday and it feels great!!! I first got the idea from my friend who thought short hair would be a good look for me. Surprisingly, I didn’t say no right away for I have been trying to grow my hair forever. The thing I found out was that everyone has a certain length that with your hair just doesn’t seem want to grow past. I was at that length and it was that time where I needed a new look! What better opportunity than welcome the new age with new look out?
Many of us cling to the familiarity of our long hair, afraid to make a change. I myself know so many girls that have so shiny hair, and would rather die than to take of an inch of it, a part of looking like that girl from the Ring movie, it gives me the impression that they hold on to their locks, afraid of not having any other good features to save them (what is sometimes true :P) But, a short hair cut can be so chic and stylish, plus adopting a new style is a great way to break out of a hair rut.
Far from to try and convert those girls into cutting their so out of this world hair, I just believed that if you can take the risk of doing this, it indeed says a lot about ones personality.
Why hide your face behind a mop of hair when you can show it off with a sassy short hair cut? Here are some great reasons to take the plunge and adopt a short hairstyle:
1. Nothing could be easier to take care of!!
Imagine being able to jump out of bed, shake your head a bit and your hair looks fantastic! With the right short hair cut you can do that. Think of all the time and hassle you’ll save. Plus, on mornings when you do wash your hair, it’ll dry quickly, meaning you’ll spend less time dealing with your hairdryer. With short hair, you have the option of towel drying your hair, fluffing it with your fingers, and allowing it to air dry. Why waste the day trying to dry your hair?
2. You’ll show off a pretty face!
If you have an interesting face, short hair will frame it beautifully so people will see YOU, not your hair. The right short hair cut can do a lot to enhance your best features and play down the ones you’re not so happy with. It all lies in getting the right hair cut.
3. It looks professional.
Otherwise why so many men would prefer it? 😛 Jokes apart, in my opinion a person with short hair on a job won’t be perceived as the type of person who spends hours in front of a mirror styling hair before coming to work.
4. It has more impact!
Short hair can be bold, sexy, chic and ultra feminine. There’s something about a woman in a short hair cut that suggests confidence and flair. She doesn’t hide behind a mop of long hair but shows her face to the world. That’s sexy! (and I may not be all that, but look at those actresses :D)
5. It can make you look younger!
Long hair tends to drag down an aging face, making it look tired and sallow. A short hair cut with some lift and body may be all you need to look like you’ve had a face lift!
6. It’s great for keeping you in the gym!
When I first straightened my hair, the hairdresser said: no water, no sweat, no steam, no rain, not tying, not putting hair behind the ears, not clipping for 3 days. So I skipped the gym for 3 days, and from then my hairs are now chopped and all straightened gone and I still never went back to the gym 😀 . And I though exercise was hard enough without having to worry about hair.
7. It’s versatile!
You can do so many things with a short hair cut! It can be blown ultra straight and sleek, pin curled for a sassy look, spiffed up with a curling iron, and enhanced with dozens of hair accessories. You can try a different look every day!
Love hair bands and all the fashion junk from the shop Ayesha (Ayesha Kapoor, that little girl I can’t remember from which movie, but her dad owns Hidesign, and I like him cause he makes great bags and married a foreigner :P)
8. It’s a great way to redefine Yourself!
Have you recently lost weight or made a major change in your life? One of the first things women do when they’ve made a major life change is to get a haircut. A short hair cut lets the world know you’re a new person in no uncertain terms. You no longer need to cling to the crutch of having long hair(long hair here being a metaphor, don’t worry I like long hair :P). It’s time to show the world who you’ve become!
I hope I’ve convinced you that there are good reasons to get a short hair cut. If you’re going to do it, make sure you find a hairdresser who can help you select the right short hair cut for your face and personality. A well thought out hair cut can make all the difference in how you feel about your hair.
After I had cut my hair and went to work, one of these ‘perfect Kareena Kapoor’s hair style gal, came to me almost in tears to ask me what on earth had I done to my beautiful long hair?
I said, “I’ve cut it.”
The girl openly weeping as if that had happened to her hair said, “I love my hair so much I would kill myself if I got hair this short. “(seriously, she was about to do that only looking at my crop :D)
I tried to put some sense on her head and commented, ” To cut hair, more than style you need guts beti and that I have.”
Still amazed at me not crying regretting the crap I had just paid for she told, “Well, not guts, it’s just being proud of something beautiful you have.”
I wasn’t in a mood for baakwas so I said, ” I understand you completely darling, if you cut this beauty, what else is left?”
The same look is boring. There’s nothing more awkward than running into someone you haven’t seen in ten years and discovering they look the exact same.
It’s a weight of your shoulders. It’s amazing how heavy hair actually is – especially when it’s balled up in a messy bun like mine usually was some days!
Your wardrobe will feel renewed. “Is that new?” No, it’s just my fabulous new hair. ;P
Lift your spirits. It’s because you want! And it’s your hair not theirs.
A trim is just a trim. But a real good haircut will get rid of more than just split ends. Sometimes your hair just needs a good chop to feel healthy and look shiny again. If you’re a fan of the flat iron, you know what I mean.
If all else fails…and you end up hating it, don’t worry. That’s the thing about hair; it grows back again.
That’s right 😛
And Happy b’day to me 😀
Ps: sorry for the bad skin and no makeup on almost all the photos 😀
