Guest Post: Going Short?


A lot of women want to cut their hair short but they are frightened about getting their locks chopped. Does this sound familiar? You have grown your hair long for many years, and once you cut your hair, there is no going back! This frightens a lot of women. Plus, a lot of females see long hair as a security blanket. It makes them feel comfortable and feminine. This is understandable, but short hair can be more empowering than you may realise. With that being said, read on to discover some of the main reasons why you should not be afraid to cut your hair short.

You won’t have to spend ages styling your hair – Do you hate the fact that you need to spend a good hour doing your hair before you go anywhere? Well, you won’t need to do this if you have short hair. You will love your easy-to-maintain look. Plus, you won’t need to spend a fortune on hair styling tools. You will probably only need a hairdryer and a bit of product. If you are unsure about how to style your new look, just ask your hairdresser. Short hair is only difficult to style when you don’t know how to do so. Speak to your hair stylist and they can give you a step-by-step routine to follow. Moreover, if you want someone that is really easy to maintain and will literally take a minute or two to style, then tell your hairdresser this. Some hairstyles are easier to maintain than others, but if you don’t ask, you won’t get.

It’s exciting – You know that amazing nervous exciting feeling you get when you are about to do something completely different. Well, that is what you will get when you decide to have a drastic hair change. Sometimes styling your hair the same way can be incredibly boring, which is why you should step into the chair and ask for something completely different. Losing length can be exhilarating!

Your hair will look healthier after making a change – Often, we hold onto hairstyles for so long that they end up looking thinner and stringy at the ends. Your hair will look fuller and thicker once you have had it cut.

You will stand out for all of the right reasons – Think about it: when you do a double take and look at someone walking down the street, is it because they have long hair? Or, is it because they have a short cut, or probably a vibrant colour? A short haircut will make you stand out from the crowd. If you are someone who considers yourself a trendsetter and likes to be different, a short haircut is a must.

There are so many gorgeous short hairstyles – A lot of women prefer long hair because they feel that they can do more with their hair. However, there are so many amazing short hairstyles! This includes pixie haircuts, as well as bobs and bowl cuts. You only need to look at the celebrities with short hair to see how amazing these cuts look. Think Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, and Emma Willis!

Hello attention – You are bound to get plenty of attention if you get your hair cut short. Isn’t it annoying when you go to the hairdresser and no one notices your new haircut? You feel disappointed! Do I really look the same?! Well, you won’t have this issue when you go for a dramatic short cut, that’s for sure!

Your boyfriend is still going to like you – A lot of people state that they won’t get their hair cut short because their boyfriend likes hair. Well, news flash, your boyfriend is still going to like you just as much. In fact, he will probably like you even more. It’s hard for men to envision what a short hairstyle is going to look like until they actually see it on you. Plus, nothing looks better than confidence, which is exactly what you will gain by having a new hairstyle.

Short hair is way less greasy – As short hair does not get into your face; it’s not as greasy. You also won’t feel the need to touch your hair every couple of minutes when it gets out of place.

It is empowering – There is something very energising and empowering about the whole experience. It makes you feel like an independent woman who can do whatever they want. It’s almost like therapy. You’re letting those five or more inches of hair fall to the floor, and you’re letting go of everything in the past and moving onto a new and more confident you. It sounds drastic, but you’d be surprised by just how much of a difference it makes.

Your hair will grow back – Last but not least, cutting your hair is not the end of the world. It is not going to disappear forever. It will grow back! So, if you are worried that you will hate the look you end up with, you’re not going to be stuck with it all of the time. Isn’t it better to give something a try than never know that that new style looks on you at all?

As you can see, there are many different reasons why you should consider a short haircut. Not only will it make you feel confident and empower you, but it’s exciting too. Plus, short hair enables you to stand out from the crowd. So many women have long hair, but not everyone has a short and striking cut.

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
