I got a fresh hair cut and I gotta say I feel like a brand fucking new person! The whole time I was getting my hair chopped off I was thinking to myself, “Why the hell did I wait this long?! NEVER AGAIN WILL I TRY TO GROW OUT MY HAIR!” I’m about to list some reasons why short hair is better than long hair…. in my opinion.
Why would you want this? Sure, long hair is beautiful, we see how gorgeous and voluminous long hair can be in the magazines, in the movies, and on Pinterest. Thick luscious locks, bouncing with life; or long straight sleek and silky. You can do so many cool things with your long hair! You can pin ideas off Pinterest and try them at home. The rare few are blessed with this gift. In other cases like my own, we suffer from fine limp hair that can’t seem to hold a curl no matter how hard we try.
When you could have short hair like this, and look like a fucking badass?! When you find the right hair stylist, it’s like you hit the jack pot! You trust them with your hair like you would trust them with your life. After all, your hair is your head suit. Only the most talented stylists can replicate that edgy short cut for ANY hair type, whereas average hair stylists cut down your hopes and dreams and insult your hair. I trust only ONE person with my hair, and that is Michelle Bryant. She makes me look and feel like the badass that I am.
‘Resting Bitch Face’ would no longer be ‘Resting Bitch Face’ . In your case you would have ‘Resting Badass Face’, and that’s MUCH better. I suffer from ‘Resting Bitch Face’…. chronically. I don’t mean to go around looking like a sour puss all the time! Having short hair gives me an excuse now. Now I just look like a badass, no one will mess with me. They will either be intimidated by me or curious. I will remain mysterious. I gotta say, it matches my personality.
You wouldn’t have to spend copious amounts of time blow drying, brushing, detangling, straightening, curling EVER again. Long hair is so high maintenance, I truly don’t understand how the average woman with long hair does it! They spend so much time blow drying their hair with a round brush, comb, and/or paddle brush. There’s a brush for everything. They spend hours upon hours detangling their hair, straightening it, and curling it. On average, it takes women an hour and a half to get ready for the day. Fuck that bullshit!
You could definitely utilize your morning time better by sleeping in or cooking pancakes for breakfast 🙂 Guess what? It takes me 15 minutes to get ready in the morning. That’s right. 15 minutes. It takes a little bit longer if I’m feeling fancy enough for eye shadow. I literally throw some pomade shit in my hair and call it good. I don’t even use a brush. I get to take my time packing my gym bag in the morning, spend a little time with the hubby, and surf the interwebz on Facebook, email, and the news. I annoy my dog for 5 minutes and head out the door. Never feel rushed. Feeling rushed is a horrible way to start your day….. so cut all that hurrr off!
You would never have to buy hair ties or hair accessories EVER. Do you ever wonder how much money you’ve spent in your life time on these lil fuckers?! ‘Nuff said.
That shit wouldn’t get in your face when you roll the car windows down or try to eat… and your hair wouldn’t get stuck in your fucking lipgloss. “GOD DAMN IT, I JUST REAPPLIED!” My hair was constantly getting in my face, I hated it. In the gym, cleaning the house, just hanging out doing nothing in particular, it always fell in my face, eyes, and mouth. I’m too lazy to do anything about it, so I decided cutting it all off was the better alternative. Not to mention, I’m a lot less hot!
You could workout more efficiently. No redoing your bun or having hair fall in your face. This kinda falls into the category before, but working out is a huge factor in my life. Sure, you can throw your hair up in a bun, but if you’re anything like me, you’re very aggressive with how you put your hair up and how you take it down. I suffered from hair breakage and major overall damage. Now my hair feels just as healthy as I feel inside and out. No more ripping hair, messy buns, or hair falling out of my head band and into my face.
Draws attention to your eyes, so you better be confident to rock this cut. Only a few can really pull off the long hair, but only few can pull off the short hair too. It takes a lot of confidence for a woman to cut off all her hair. At first you feel bare, naked, and in the spotlight. It’s obvious when you cut your hair that short and people will definitely comment. Feel comfortable enough in your own skin and no one else’s opinions should matter, the good and bad. It’s your fucking hair after all.
