On the spur of the moment, a few weeks ago I decided to go get my hair drastically chopped. I've had long hair for as long as I can remember so getting it snipped was a very strange experience for me. I opted for a longish blunt cut bob as I thought it would be very chic, get rid of all my dead ends and switch my look up a bit. I'm so happy with the results but initially I was very concerned about getting it cut so different from my usual style. All it took was a tiny bit of courage. It's such a change if you are used to having long hair. Come on girls, Hands up - How many of us hide behind our long locks? We use it like a safety net. Today Im going to share with you four reasons why you should cut your hair short...
So many people have commented on how "fresh" I look since getting my hair snipped. Long hair is all well and good, Don't get me wrong. But I've had my hair long for as long as I can remember, even as a child. I then came to realise that I let my hair define me too much. Ombre hair was my thing for ages, and I've barely changed my hair cut since 2005. I've received so much positive feedback on my hair I felt like my head was going to explode with all the compliments. People say its really refreshed my whole look and I'm pretty chuffed with that.
Fresh to Death
I know its silly but drastically changing your hair can really change the way you feel. Hair cuts are really cathartic, and you know that ol' saying that girls always change their hair after a breakup. Yeah its superficial but switching things up can do wonders for your confidence and make you feel like a whole new woman. It's liberating in a way to go for something so different from what you are used to.
I save so much time styling my hair now that my hair is short. It used to take me anything from 30 mins to an hour to wash, dry and style my hair. Post chop I can get it all done in less than 20 minutes. I use way less product and my drying time is literally a 1/3rd of what it used to be. So good for anyone who hates to spend ages drying their hair!
Is there a better reason to chop your hair off other than you only live once? Well probably yes but still... Hair grows back. Albeit a bit slower than you might like but sooner or later its going to grow back. How will you know if short hair doesn't suit you unless you try it once! Experiment and try something new, you might feel more you with a new hair do than you did before! Gwan... be brave!
