I miss my long hair–this is true. I miss having the options to braid it, curl it (even though this never happened), or throw it into a messy bun or ponytail. I miss the way it swished behind me in a swimming pool.
And there are things I don’t like about short hair, like how it tickles the inside of my ears as I fall asleep, or how I have to shower in the morning because my bedhead is fierce.
And without my hair to hide behind, I feel so exposed.
As well as hoods on jackets and hoodies.
2) Formal Occasions? No problem!
No more spending hours and hours trying to do something fancy. There is way less social obligation.
3) Less shampoo & conditioner
but way more other types of product
4) Windy days? No problem!
Because we have all had the hair-in-the-face-can’t-see experience when trying to walk outside during a slight breeze with long hair.
Unless you are Ariel or Pocahontas, because their hair is magic.
And you know, Rapunzel, whose hair is especially magic.
(to see what these princesses would look like with nonmagic hair, see here.)
5) Hot or sweaty? No problem!
No more hair sticking to the back of your neck during summer days.
6) You are way less likely to get stuff caught in it.
No need to hold your hair while you eat / drink from a water fountain / cook / blow out candles.
7) No more tangles or hours of brushing
10) It’s liberating.
It may make you feel like an entirely new person. But sometimes that’s exactly what you need.
Bonus: Just look how gorgeous these women are with short hair.
Short hair is awesome, the end.
