When it gets to the middle of the week, taking your mind off of everything you should be doing by looking at hairstyles you may never get (but should really think about getting) is a lot of fun.

We're not encouraging a lack in productivity, merely suggesting a coffee break activity that could inspire a whole new look...

Why you should take the plunge

If the idea of getting a short cut has been chasing you around for a while, maybe you should just go ahead and do it. The worst case scenario is that it grows back, but the best case scenario is that you find your new signature cut and it looks amazing! It could be worth the risk, don't you think?

The other really convincing argument is that you'll save a lot of time on washing and styling. It's basic physics - less hair equates to less time required to take care of it! Translation: you can get up later in the morning. What's not to love about that?

If you're still not convinced, consider the amount of time it takes to blow-dry longer hair in winter.

Products to invest in

If you do decide to go short, you'll need some flexible hold products on hand to keep your style looking its best throughout the day.

Try L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty for long-lasting touchable hold, whether you're styling a pixie or a bob. For a messier, piecey finish, try Advanced Hairstyle Deconstructing Gum.

What do you think? Can you see yourself getting a short hairstyle of your own anytime soon?
