Now that the summer is under way and the heat is on, you–like me–may be contemplating cutting all your hair off to have a cool, carefree summer.  Here are some great reasons to go short:

  • Benefit of Short Hair #1:
    Short hair is way playful, youthful and yet sophisticated
  • Benefit of Short Hair #2:
    With short hair, think of all the money you’d save on shampoo, conditioner and hair products
  • Benefit of Short Hair #3:
    No more blow drying!  Plus, short hair takes a lot less time to style and maintain
  • Benefit of Short Hair #4:
    Short hair is totally in! Think of Victoria Beckham (my inspiration for this cut), Rihanna, Katie Holmes–all who have had fab short cuts recently!
  • Benefit of Short Hair #5:
    Short hair is healthy! I loved having long hair, but my ends were seriously damaged (especially since Utah). Now they’re not!

So if you are inspired and want to get a short cut yourself after reading the benefit of short hair, here are some great cuts that have inspired me:

    Over the years, any woman who has opted for short hair was always aware that a well-crafted short style made her look more stylish, as it allows for endless possibilities of experimenting with hair.

    i had short hair for years and i felt more like 'me' then or that short hair said more about my personality. My hair is now just above my shoulders and i think im going to cut it all off again because its just bring and i end up putting it up all the time.

    i dont agree that short hair is easier to look after or that you use less products because i use more styling products when my hair is shorter. if you have long hair and you are having a bad hair day you can at least put it up, with short hair there's no hiding so i spend more time making it look good. but i enjoy having short hair more and doing things like mohawks and spikes or bed head hair its just more fun!

    I’m totally going short and since I’m veiled it will be a lot more comfortable. I’ve grown my hair out a few times but I always find myself going short again. I want to do the coontail thing in my bangs but I haven’t found a way to incorporate it into the short ‘do. Any tips or advice on hair dye with short hair?
