Recently I went from very long curly almost-down-to-my-butt hair to super short hair. I had short hair in college so it was not the craziest thing in the world for me to do, but it was definitely a change. For the most part the new do was well received, unless it wasn’t (“Oooh you cut your hair!…It’ll grow back.”), but one of the most common questions I was asked was “Wow, you cut your hair, I love it! (pause) What does your boyfriend think of it?” I was able to honestly say that my boyfriend, having met me when I had short hair in college, was the one who encouraged me to cut it all off when I started thinking about it, and loves it just as much as I do.
But really, what I wanted to say to them, instead of “He loves it!” was “Who gives a f*ck what he thinks?”. Am I right? If I was growing out my hair I doubt anyone would ask me “Oooh, what does your boyfriend think of your longer hair?”. It seems so dated and lame for people to immediately assume that my boyfriend would be upset about me cutting my very “feminine” long hair off, especially since I was feeling so excited and happy about it.
Aaaanyway, all of this is to say that short hair is awesome, I am loving my new cut, and now that I have short hair I am constantly trolling one of my fave sites, Pinterest, for new hairstyles to try in the future. Below check out some of my faves, and let’s have a “hear hear!” for all the ladies who are rocking short do’s and looking just as awesome, feminine (if they want to look that way) and purty as the Rapunzels out there. Yay short hair!
