It’s always fun to change up your hairstyle and go for a brand new ‘do, but most of the time this normally involves cutting in some bangs, changing up the color slightly, or just adding a few layers into the mix. Yet, what if you decided to go for the chop and transform your long locks into something a bit shorter? It can be a rather challenging thought for many, and it’s a big change to get used to. However, many people have found that cutting their hair and embracing the short lifestyle has been one of the best decisions they have ever made. These are the great advantages of having short hair…
You use less product
With long hair, how much shampoo, conditioner, and other products do you use a month? There’s a high chance that you go through a few bottles because more hair means more product. Thankfully, this isn’t the case when you cut your hair short. Due to the fact that you have less hair on your head, this means that you will go through these bottles slower, and ultimately save money. You can spend this extra cash on anything you want, which means that the world really is your oyster.
It’s cooler in the summer
When the summer months come around, those with long hair often have to tie it up all of the time. This is because it’s just too hot to have all of that hair around your neck and your shoulders, and keeping it off your skin is a sweet (and cold) relief. However, by doing this, you stop yourself from embracing cool summer styles that involve keeping your hair down. By cutting your hair and embracing your short strands, you can keep your hair down even when the temperature starts to rise.
It’s low maintenance
If you love your sleep, then it might be worth cutting your hair short. That’s because hair short requires much less maintenance than long hair, as you don’t have to spend as much time styling it into your favorite shape of fullness. With this in mind, you can actually stay in bed for a little longer if you cut your hair short, as you won’t have to get up super early to make sure your long locks look perfect. What could be better than that?
It will dry quicker
Whether you blow dry or allow your hair to dry naturally, there’s no doubt about the fact that your hair will dry quicker when you have shorter hair. Because there is much more to your hair when it is longer, it should come as no surprise to learn that it takes longer to blow dry and dry on its own. This won’t be a problem when you cut your locks off, which means that you have so much more time for activities.
Short hair is stylish
If you look around at all of the celebs of today, you’ll notice that a huge portion of them have short hair. That’s because short hair is stylish! Choppy bobs and pixie cuts are all the rage, and that’s mainly because they accentuate your natural features and suit all face types. Thanks to this, you can rest easy knowing that you’re probably going to suit this new look. If not, then it won’t take long to grow back.
