Do you love short hair as much as I do?
About a month ago, I decided to take the plunge and chop off all of my hair. I tried to grow it out for my wedding last year, but it was so damaged and just looked stringy and gross. I figured that cutting my hair would not only be fun for summer but would get rid of the dead ends and look fuller.
And boy, was I right; I really like my hair the length it is right now and will probably be keeping it this way for a while.
This morning, as I was styling my hair, I thought that it would be fun to write an article, using only GIF images, to describe all the benefits of having short hair.
21. You’ll use less shampoo.
The first time I washed my hair after cutting it, I squirted way too much shampoo in my hand. You will only need a tiny bit if your hair is short. This can add up to a lot of money saved.
20. You’ll lose the dead ends.
The best part of cutting my hair was to cut all of the dead stuff right off. My hair is a whole lot healthier now and looks much better when I style it.
19. Your hair will look fuller.
Because you cut those dead ends off, the ends of your hair strands are blunt cut, making them appear thicker.
18. It’s cooler in the summer.
The less hair you have, the less opportunity your body has to hold in heat. Short hair feels amazing in the summer.
17. Bobs and Lobs are hot right now.
16. Hair color is cheaper.
Shorter hair means less hair that needs to be colored. Whether you do your own hair color or get it done professionally, it will generally be cheaper with shorter hair.
15. You’ll feel sassier.
14. It will make you look younger.
For whatever reason, shorter hair tends to make people look younger.
13. There’s a better chance you’ll style it.
When you can’t throw your hair up in a ponytail everyday, you will find the time to style your hair.
12. It’s easier to brush.
11. Short hair is generally more flattering.
10. You’ll require less time to get ready.
When your hair is shorter, it’ll take you a lot less time to style it. It will dry super fast and there won’t be a lot of hair that needs to be
9. Which means you can sleep in longer.
This is the best part of having short hair.
8. You’ll save money on hair products.
With most high-quality hair products, a little goes a long way. When you have less hair, you will only need to use a tiny bit of styling products. This can save a lot of money over time.
7. It looks good with any hair texture.
Short hair looks good on curly, wavy or straight hair. However, kinky-curly hair works best with certain haircuts. Talk to your hairstylist about your options before taking the plunge.
6. It won’t get caught in your purse strap.
5. Blow-Drying is a lot easier.
4. Your roots will have more lift.
When you have less hair, there is less hair weighing down your roots. This is an instant volume boost to your hair. Check out some other ways to add volume to your hair.
3. Your head feels lighter.
Who doesn’t love the bouncy feeling of a fresh haircut?
2. It can accentuate your facial features.
Short hairstyles are typically layered, and layers around the face will accentuate and conceal facial features.
1. If you don’t like it, it will grow back.
I know that this is easier said than done, but your hair will always grow back out. And if you are impatient, there’s always the option of hair extensions.
