Thinking About Going Short?

Thinking About Going Short?

Cutting your hair can be a nerve-racking experience. Women of all ages and races have a complicated relationship with their hair. In some cases, it seems our emotions are tied very closely to our hair and what it symbolizes; life changes can be signified by a simple trim or a drastic color change. As we age and pass through different life stages, our connection to our hair can change. When you were younger you may have idealized a fantasy of long, flowing blonde locks, but as you’ve gotten older you may prefer a shorter, dark style with less maintenance. If you are thinking about committing to a big chop, here are a few things to consider.


When you’re experiencing a big life change like a breakup, it can be tempting to cut all your hair off and say goodbye to the person you used to be. To you, letting go of your hair may symbolize freedom from your past relationship and the sorrow of your breakup. Try not to make rash decisions in the wake of a big emotional turmoil.


Cutting your hair short may seem like a low-maintenace option, but shorter hair usually requires more day-to-day styling than longer hair that can be thrown up into a ponytail or bun. Do you have the time to get regular trims to maintain the right style and shape? Discuss options with your stylist before making your decision.

Hair Type

Depending on your hair type and texture, some styles may be better than others. Thicker, curly hair may require stylized cutting designed to enhance curls while removing weight. Straight hair will need a style that prevents dull, blunt ends and adds movement to the overall look.
