Thinking of a shortie haircut? Go for it!

My latest. I love it!
Hey, for years I was a chicken when it came to my hair. For ages I kept it long, like past middle of my back long. Eventually I went shoulder-length with maybe a few layers, but nothing that really inspired me. 

Until one day - oh around the age of 38 - I said to my hair stylist at the time, "Chop it off. I mean all of it!" And it felt great.

So, ladies, if I can do it, you can too! I say this because I have heard time and time again since then, "Oh, I love your hair. I've always wanted to do that, but I never could."

I want to attest right here and now that a short hair cut - even super short - is a lot of fun, easy to manage, and it makes you feel sassy and confident. I just think any gal that's ever thought of doing it should take the plunge at least once. You can always grow it back out!

I was so glad when I finally did and can't imagine going back.

Just Google "short haircuts" and "images" - like this - and see all the fun styles out there. Okay, that's about as style-intense as I'm ever likely to get here :) Have a great weekend!

  1. You look great! I've had mine long, short and everywhere in between. It's on the longer side now, and I find because I cut it myself that it's easier for me this way. I wonder if I could learn to trim my own short hair?

    1. Thanks Missy! When I start to grow it out now, I go crazy, LOL! My MIL cuts her own and it always looks cute. And I hack on mine in between cut appointments.

  2. The short cut looks so good on you! My sister just cut mine a few days ago, and it's about chin length. It's the shortest I've ever had it, and so far I love it! It's so much easier to work with. At this moment in my life, I need easy!

    1. Thanks, Michelle :) It feels like "me" to me. And you're right, SO much easier. I was amazed.

  3. Short is fun - this is the first time in decades I have it to my shoulders. Also - I stopped coloring and am natural - my natural color is fabulous grey and I get compliments daily. "Who colored your hair? Where can I get it done like that?" I just answer "God Salon 101"

    1. I love your hair, Ronnie. It seems to fit :) My mom used to have a gray streak right up the middle of her almost-black Czechoslovakian hair. She said she looked like a skunk. Everyone always asked her where she got it done. I wonder if I'll have it someday?

  5. Very chic! This year has been a perpetual bad-hair-year for me, so I got some cut off a couple of weeks ago (not very short though). It always feels good to have a change!

    1. Thanks! It's super fun and makes life easy. Oh I hate bad hair years! I've had them. And yes, change is good. Sometimes a physical change can change something inside too :)

  7. Great style for you...I tried that recently...made the mistake of going to the local beauty school for a new style... A friend told me this girl was amazing...she can look at you and tell you what style will look best for your face.................let's just say ~ I look like the mannequin at the end of the term...but alas, hair will grow...

    1. Renee, oh no! I think we've all had a not-what-we-had-envisioned cut before. But yes, thank goodness it grows back. I have often gotten stylists who style my hair after cutting it and they poof it all up and then I have to go home and wash it!
