5 Reasons Why Having Short Hair is Awesome

As a lady who loves makeup, fashion, and lots of other girly things, I like to think that I’m somewhat of an enigma when I walk around with my layered pixie cut and (faux) leather jacket. A year ago I never would have dreamed that I would have hair this short. Now I don’t know how my haircut could be any different! It made my fine, feathery tresses turn thick and shiny. I think it also reflects my optimistic, and somewhat oddball, personality.

In honor of all the ladies with short hair…Here are 5 reasons why we are awesome!

1. It’s Bold

Anytime a girl goes and gets her hair chopped off, she’s seen as unique. One of the most common complements I get is, “I wish I was as brave as you!” My pixie cut was actually a gradual process; only now I wish I would have known how awesome it would look so I could have donated it.

2. You Save Money on Hair Products

Less hair equals less shampoo, conditioner, and styling products. However, this saved money might be spent on frequent trims (so consider the upkeep of your haircut before hand). But the good thing about frequent trims is…

3. It Makes Your Hair Healthier

If you’re like me, and do the whole every 6-8 week trims, then that gets rid of all your dull, dry, split ends. My hair is fine and kind of thin, but now it actually has body and is healthier than ever before (which is especially great if you like to dye your hair).

4. Styling is Easier

Again, this might depend on your haircut–or your passion for letting out your inner stylist. I’m not so great with manipulating my hair, so I like the fact that now I can just blow dry and hairspray it in 5 minutes.

5. It’s Cooler in the Summer

Awesome for now, but I guess you can see how this might not be cool in the winter (yay scarves!).

My hair’s definitely not perfect, and I still get bad hair days, but short hair is what God had planned for this gal.

Thanks to all of my readers and followers who fill my heart with love! Do any of you have short/awesome hair? Please comment below! 🙂

Love, Emily <3

  1. Hi there from the other end of the spectrum! I’m growing my hair out to knee (its about fingertip now) and I love long hair. Strangely, for some of the same reasons you like your short!

    I can throw it into a bun in literally 8 seconds, braid it in less than a minute, and since I’m no-poo I dont have to worry about any fancy shampoos!

    Very interesting!

  2. Here’s who you made me think of when we met the first time: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm681954816/tt1595859 (Sami Gayle, who’s on “Blue Bloods”)

    Are you going to the author fair in Grand Ledge next weekend?

    • She reminds me of Winona Ryder! Love it…and I didn’t know about that art fair! I will have to check it out and see.

      • 11-3 on 4/25 at the Grand Ledge library. (The organizer handed me one of the cards just as everyone was packing up.) Which reminds me…I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to you! (And you haven’t been replying to my emails…what’s up with that?)
