Take it Short this Summer

Charles IferganInspiration, Styling

Long hair is very pretty, but it can also be quite time consuming. Every long-haired girl has dreamt about getting a super-short hair cut once or twice, whether they actually go through with it or not! Short hair is lighter, easier to style, and super trendy right now. We understand that big hair changes can be intimidating, but sometimes it’s just what you need to mix things up and fall in love with your hair again. If you’re not yet convinced, read on to discover the many benefits of short hair.

Maturity. There is nothing wrong with having a youthful appearance, but if you’re in your late teens or early twenties, you may want to look a bit older. A “grown up” cut – like an angled bob – will definitely give you a more mature look. There’s a psychological benefit, too: when you look older, you are perceived as being more responsible. That will definitely give you an edge in class, at your internship, or at your next job interview!

Time saving. Short hair is much easier to maintain than longer hair. Since you have less hair, every step in your hair care routine will be reduced. You will use less product, take less time washing and drying, and styling will be a breeze too! That will leave you more time in the mornings to do other things, like apply makeup, eat breakfast… or sleep in! Gone are the days of achy arms when you’re holding up a blow dryer. Your short hair is simply easier to take care of than your long hair ever was.

Trendy. Short hair is in right now, and for good reason. So many celebrities have made the cut that you will have a wide range of inspiration pics to choose from. You can go for an edgy, angled cut like Rihanna, a picture-perfect bob like Taylor Swift, or an adventurous cropped cut like Katy Perry! The possibilities are practically endless here! With that in mind, be sure to bring inspiration pics to your appointment to help your stylist capture the look you’re after.
