While short hair isn't for everyone, swapping long tresses for a radically shorter haircut like a bob, pixie or even an undercut can be life-changing. If think you might want a short style of your own, check out all of the positives you can expect from a close-cropped chop below!

1/ Maintenance

Having less hair means you'll need to spend way less time on it, from shampooing to styling. It dries so much faster than long hair so air drying will be a total breeze, and having fewer strands to deal with means styling different textures and even the occasional updo with take mere minutes to accomplish. Less [hair] really is more, folks!

2/ Healthy hair

There's nothing like a transformative shearing to give your mane a whole new lease of life. No splits, no tangles, no problem. Just make sure you maintain your new healthy 'do with regular conditioning betwen post-cut trims!

3/ Hair flips

Perhaps the best thing about getting short haircut is how much fun you can have flipping it every which way for at least the first week of having it... or until the end of time. Seriously, it never gets old.

4/ Bed head hair

While your natural hair texture generally dictates whether you can get away with a bed head hairstyle, oftentimes it's more manageable with short hair. All you need to do is even out the texture with a matte spray or gum, finish with hairspray, and you're good to go!

5/ It always grows back

Your hair will always grow back, so if you end up with some haircut regrets this time around, it's not the end of the world. Plus, you'll get seriously good at creative updos while you wait it out!
