Super short hairstyles have been rooting on most female's fashion and beauty dictionaries for a while. Blame the '60s, Vidal Sassoon, revolutionary models like Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick and Nouvelle Vague actresses like Jean Seberg. Blame the fearless celebrities who have embraced them recently (Elle fanning, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart, just to name a few). Blame the most girly girls desire of tasting the edge of androgyny.
Some people say it takes courage. Others call it madness. Or even a crime, if the girl gets rid of some super shiny long locks. But, somehow, fashion is heading to freshness, to multiple new directions, showing everyone on earth they don’t always have to look (and be) the same.
A couple of weeks ago, I gave up my shoulder length boring ginger hair. I was feeling it wasn’t adding any interest to my image or even reflecting who I am right now. It was just too plain and I was craving change. A bigger one than trimming the ends and going for bangs… again. Of course I was a bit nervous about it. I feared my face wouldn’t pull it off or look extra round, as I’m not my slenderest self right now. Anyway, it worked. It felt so fresh and, somehow, so me. Oh, and my face actually looks narrower.
Now there’s a world of lengths, layers and styles for me to try before even considering growing it out.
Although short hair may not be the easiest to groom if your hair is not super straight and smooth, it’s just a matter of getting used to it. No big deal. And you can still play with accessorizing and have fun with it, without losing a dash of femininity. From the super sleek elegance of a side parting to the crazy messed up punkish styles, it’s your choice.
If you are considering giving a boyish haircut a change, here’s some inspiration for you.
