I used to define myself by my hair; long hair held all my feminine power. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d always had long, lush tresses. Then I grew up and had children and my once sexy hair became a perpetual ponytail. Ponytails? Not so sexy, unless itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s one of those bed head, I just got me some love, disheveled ponies. But who has time to figure out how to make that happen? I decided to cut it all off (see sexy photo above). Here are a few reasons why you should NOT be afraid to cut your long hair.
- Short hair is notoriously easy to take care of.
Short hair is easier to style and manage. Washing and drying takes less time and styling is quicker. This is imperative if you are not a woman of leisure and actually have to take care of little people.
- Shows off your pretty face
You canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t hide behind your hair. Your face is the star. The right cut can hide those features that youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not crazy about (pointy ears or a particularly large forehead) and accentuate those that are more flattering (high cheekbones, big eyes).
- It looks more professional and put together
You can no longer phone in your hairstyle with a ponytail. YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll look more put together and professional with short hair, like before children. More importantly, you will feel more put together.
- It makes you look younger
Short hair is an instant facelift. I was worried that I would be trading in my luxurious locks for a matronly, comfortable-shoe hairstyle. I was afraid that I would cut my hair and either look like a boy or my Grandma. Neither happened.
- Redefinition is imminent
I cut my hair and instantly felt sexier, sassier and more confident than I have in years. How did I never know this? I would have chopped it all off years ago. My husband loves it. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve gotten more compliments on my hair than IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had since I was a teenager.
