If you’ve been thinking of making a big hair change, there’s no time like the present. Especially when it comes to cutting things off—going short for the summer is practical and refreshing. But before you bring those shears near your mane, you need to make sure it’s the right choice for you. (Because you know, no backsies!)
A new haircut always goes with a changing, a new beginning. It gives you that special style, that fresh new image of yourself that you can’t wait to brag about. You feel yourself, perfectly blending in the trend. So that we answer the question right away… Summer is indeed a good time to cut your hair and make it saner. So go for it and read here about what might be your future haircut!
Pro: Much more convenient
This, you’ll notice! It will only take you a few minutes and a single fingers passing in your hair to fulfil your new morning routine. Whatever appointment you have, you can go running to it, without risking a disastrous mane effect. You can jump into a plane, catch a train, go to your favourite beach without thinking one second about your ruined hairdo. Even with a straight bob: one single iron passing and you’re good to go!
Con: Short hair can get in the way during a workout
Sweaty layers that reach your forehead can get annoying during a workout. Although some of the stickiness that will ensue is inevitable, you can try a few products to help you style and prep better for your workout – like bobby pins or cute headbands.
Apart from the obvious freedom from the daily necessity to know what to do with your hair, you can also escape the eternal dilemma around which trend to follow. With a short hair, you can say goodbye to this mental obligation, and let your hair loose, wear it wild or wear it super straight, it’ll take you less time and energy to solve inexistent dilemmas.
Con: It’s more difficult to mask a bad hair day.
On the other hand, some might not view the chance to get creative as a perk. “With shorter hair, you lose the ability to throw your hair into a ponytail or a cool braid,” say Lona Vigi, celebrity hairstylist at Nexus New York Salon Care.
