It seems as if every one is taking the plunge (hair – wise). Last week, even Kim Kardasien decided to cut her signature locks for a much shorter hair style. Here are a few reasons of why many people are following the trend but really those reasons aren’t as good as many might think. “For every pro, there is also a con.” This is why I am not getting a lob myself.
Split ends: My hair has soo many split ends so the idea of chopping them all off seems very pleasing, this is one of the main reasons why I was debating cutting my hair. But then I thought more about it and realized that by the time my hair grew out again I would have lot’s of split ends again! Or even worse, I would get split ends on my already short hair, what’s next, a pixie cut?
Growing my hair out: Everyone says, “Hair grows back.” Well, yea but how long will it take for it to grow back? Even of you had hair which grew very fast, it would still take over a year to have it fully grown out! I’ve been stuck in the mid-length stage for so long and I’m so long to finally passing that stage. Frankly, the idea of starting the whole process again makes me sick.
It looks sexy and fresh: I agree that short hairstyles and the “lob” especially are very attractive, but long hair is equally as attractive. It depends on what the person likes. Just a few months ago, long hair voluminous hair was the big thing. Obviously, trends change all the time and I personally don’t think that short hair will be “in” for long, so it’s better to keep your hair long because it is much easier to cut off your hair the grow it back again. I love this picture! I mean look at this hair!
It costs less to maintain: I’ve heard people write about how it was going to save them loads of money that they waist on shampoos, conditioners, and other hair products. But in all honesty, that is a load of BS! You use shampoo and most hair products in your roots, so you’ll end up using the same amount as you would have used with long hair. The only thing that you may save money on, is getting highlights or dyeing your hair. But even for that most people don’t charge according to length…
Less maintenance generally: Styling your hair in the morning would take a lot longer with short hair than long hair. Just because you cannot get away with as many things. If there are a few hairs out of place it will be visible whereas with long hair it would all just blend together. Because of this, you will need to use heat tools more often thus going back to the split end section. I hope I haven’t offended anyone, these are just my personal thoughts/opinions. I love the look of short hair but I wanted to show you guys that it isn’t as black and white as it seems. This sounds funny, but hair for girls is a serious thing and I’ve had too many bad haircuts so hopefully I’ve spared some of you from taking the plunge and then regretting it! If you still want to cut off your hair, at least try to donate it to charity 🙂 Remember to follow via FB, Instagram, Twitter, anything you can think of!
