Short Cuts? Yes Please!

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at WVU chapter.

Warm breezes, music festivals and short shorts are just around the corner. Spring has sprung, and you’re feeling like you need a little change too? Our advice is a little more than a trim.

This season is all about chic and playful, but that can be hard to do when you’re worried about those long locks. The perfect solution? Cut. It. Off.

Many people think they can’t pull off short hair, or feel that it would be more work. Well we are here to tell you that you certainly can pull it off and it can actually be a lot easier!

Since the summer is a little less dry than those cold winter months, you will find that your hair is a little bouncier and full of life. The summer highlights will compliment your new do perfectly. Pony tails and crisp waves are two of the easiest, and arguably cutest, ways to make that cut sing for you.

So how do you decide which cut is right for you? This can be done in one of two ways.


1. Experiment: AKA Ask your stylist:

When trying a new hair cut, you might naturally be a little apprehensive. Which is TOTALLY natural. So we suggest going to a hair stylist that you trust completely, and asking what they think would look nice. Remember, they are professionals. They know what they are talking about.

2. Just do it!

I assure you that the first woman to ever get a pixie cut didn’t have a Hollywood stylist to ask what she should do. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and take a chance. After all its only hair, it grows back!
