7. It’s stylish
Imagine all of the cute blouse collars, turtlenecks, and accessories that are never seen because they are always covered by long hair. Now it is time to really show off your fashion sense and enjoy new looks, new earrings, and necklaces that don't have to be hidden anymore.
8. It keeps you cool
Not only does it look cool, but it also increases the air flow around your neck and you will be very pleased when you feel the difference. Nothing is worse than perspiring under a mass of hair in summer or if you are living in a warm climate.
9. It saves you money on hair products
Of course, you need much less shampoo and conditioner, but also think about all the other lotions and potions that you use to keep your long hair shiny, supple, and healthy.
10. It can make you look younger
Some short haircuts can work like an instant facelift. Long hair can be heavy and drag your features down. Not so with a short haircut. Style it up and away from your face and see the amazing, immediate effect it can have!
11. It feels liberating
No more tangles, no danger of dreadlocks if you don't brush it regularly. You can actually focus on your life instead of doing something to or with your hair several times a day. Once the weight is off, you will notice that your step will have more spring, you will feel lighter all over, and your smile will be a few levels brighter.
Reasons to get a short haircut
One of the strongest indicators that you are overdue for a serious haircut is when you catch yourself wearing your hair more often in a scrunchie bun or ponytail than open. So, stop fantasizing and check out some cute short haircuts on this website or have your hairdresser give you a few suggestions that match your face shape and type.
If you are afraid of a very drastic change, then do it gradually, step by step. Perhaps start with a longer bob or layered shag style; a few weeks later have it cut to chin length. From there, it is an easy step to get a trendy, short crop or even a pixie cut. To find out how you would look without your long hair, try out some of the new apps that allow you to upload a photo of yourself and test-wear different hairstyles.
After considering all this, how many reasons can you find not to cut your hair?
The author of this article, by the way, once went from waist-length hair to a pixie cut all in one step, scaring the hairdresser more than herself. There was no pain and no regrets. You can do it, too!
