I was looking at short hairstyles on Pinterest last week and I told myself, it’s time to let it go, start over and see what your hair can do short. I’ve been going through a bit of hair trauma lately after being on a medication that made it fall out…in chunks.
I’ve watched my hair go from long and easy to manage, to thin, brittle, impossible to style and shorter as I keep cutting it. (This argan oil makes a big difference if you suffer from dry, brittle hair.)
So I chopped it. Well, I didn’t chop it. My hairstylist did. What do I think? I think…”why didn’t I do this sooner?!” I love it and my husband really loves it. He’s always told me he prefers me with shorter hair, but I’ve always had the dream of long locks. Not Rapunzel long locks, just…well long and pretty.
I have natural curly hair and it seemed to disappear, along with what felt like half of my hair. I went to the hairstylist with a wreck of a head of hair and came out with my natural curls again. I literally put in some gel (best gel EVER), blow it dry and I’m done. I had someone ask me if I’m going to grow it out again and the answer is – I’m not sure. We’ll see what it does as it grows. But until then, I’m just going to enjoy my short hairstyle and the ease it brings me in getting ready.
(Update: I am growing it out again and so far so good. It’s long enough to use a hair wand. I’ve been applying Argan oil every morning and it’s making a huge difference in my hair.)
I wanted to share with you all of the hairstyles I’ve been pinning. They just might make you want to chop your hair off too. 😉

Which of these short hairstyles is your favorite? Do you have any favorite products for styling short hair? My personal favorites are Sexy Hair Big Sexy Blow Dry Volume Gel (so great for volume), Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray (perfect for second day hair), Smooth Sexy Hair Shampoo and Conditioner (helps with frizz), Garnier Hair Care Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Sleek Primer Style Prep(try this is you use heat on your hair quite often) and Amika Mini Ceramic Styler (great for pixie cuts or bobs, or even long hair).

Here’s how I curl my stacked bob. It’s a great way to make it a bit sassy 🙂
Love this Mandy! So cute. Thank you for sharing.
I guess it’s time to cut my hair. 🙂 Love these styles, especially the first one!
So many amazing hairstyles, it’s hard to choose one favorite. 🙂 Really tempted to try some of these out.
Short hair is the way to go! Back in January, I cut off maybe 6 or 7 inches, and at first, I cried. I found this @ http://affimity.com/#/sharedPost/19/11199, and it makes me want to keep my short ‘do forever! It is much easier to manage, and I use a lot less shampoo, so it was worth it. I usually put some mousse through it and a few bobby pins – it’s so simple to look cute with short hair! Thanks for an awesome post!
How about some for naturally curly hair? Trying to decide on a mom cut, but none of those would work for my crazy mop.
That’s a great idea Natalie! I’ll write that down and get to work on a feature. 🙂 Thanks!
Ha! These are all the hairstyles I’ve been pinning for over a year! Go next week to get it cut.
Emma always rocks and definitely my vote goes to her 🙂 I have medium length hair and happy with it. Thank you for the post, nice blog!
Thank you Anamika! Yep, Emma is one of my favorites too.
Thanks for this blog, really interesting and helpful for all, thank you so much for sharing this article.
I just read your blog. Awesome post! I think your post helps me a lot to improve my blog post.
I showed my stylist of over 4 years the chin length one with the girl looking up and over to the side with her hand up to her face and a ring on making a face. Yeah… that’s not what I got! My hair looked soooo horrible! I had to go to a friend’s stylist to sorta get it fixed. It’ll take at least 2 months for it to grow and look right. I wish I could have found a pic of the back too. I’m not sure if old stylist thought the wispy in the sideswept “ bang” was texturing or what but my hair was/is like a chin length feathered bob! It’s awful. The new stylist did what she could do I can look in the mirror again without sobbing lol
