Short hair on girls - February 17th 2013, 02:33 PM

Ok so right now I have really long hair and my hair is naturally straight. I have always wanted short hair because I feel like it would be so much fun (like getting to spike my hair and stuff) but at the same time I can't really just leave it can I? I figure that hair grows back so I want to cut it super short sometime in the next year (preferably after I hit my target weight). But I also love having long hair... It's kind of conflicting. I know I will probably want shorter hair once I am older so I don't want to cut it and never have long hair again... But I CAN always regrow it right?
Also, how do girls with short hair do your hair?

Feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat or have questions

I have pretty short hair, it was shorter back in November when I cut it. It used to be long as well, so I know exactly how scary it can be. I have to straighten my hair since it's curly, but after that I just use some product (my favorite is Bed Head Manipulator) and I use it to make my hair look a little messy. If you want to spike it up, you'd just need a comb and some hairspray.
What I've noticed is my hair has seemed to grow a lot faster since I cut it short. Of course this isn't true, but when your hair is longer it's harder to notice when it's getting longer (hopefully that makes sense). If you want to cut it short, then I think you should just go do it! Otherwise you're going to be wanting to do it for a long time. You can always get extensions if you end up missing your long hair.

And here you are living, despite it all.

I'm in a similar predicament, I would like to cut my hair to make me look a little older, but I like having hair past my shoulders!! I think if you don't try it you'll always be wanting to, so you might as well go ahead and do it. If you don't like it, you'll know not to do it again, and just let your hair grow out!

If you want to try it out, do it. If you don't like it, it'll grow back. Search for things like "short hair women" and then your face shape, because not all short hair cuts fit all kind of face shapes.
When I had my hair short, I straightened it every day, and it only took about ten minutes. So it was pretty low-maintenance.

Sorry I couldn't be there, I was tied to a rocking chair.

I think its always great to try things out. I remember in High School I decided I wanted to grow my hair out. And I didn't like it! So I just chopped it off. That's the great thing about hair (Unless you're balding, i guess) is that you can do all sorts of things with it, and always just grow it back or chop it off.

So give it a try if you really want. =)

I've had short hair lots.

Currently the back and sides is done in a fade, with a long fringe.

I've had a full fade a couple of times, and I just spike the top.
I've also had a mohawk.
I've had it long at the front and spiky at the back.
I've had a bowl cut (which I look back on and think why?).
I've had a zero buzzcut, and a four buzzcut, both of which I spiked fully once it got to about 1cm long.

My hair takes about a year to grow to shoulder length. Every time I grow it long, I get bored and chop it off again.

So, do what you want! Your hair will grow back, and if you don't like it, it's only temporary.
You'll only find out by trying.

I had short hair for a very long time and I loved it. its fun! It'll always grow back if you dont like it, but it's nice to experiment!

Hi there,

I went extreme, cut all my hair off and shaved one side. I loved it that short, I am re-growing it now, as I'd like to be able to do more with my hair. My hair is about shoulder length now, but it was really short, it's taken my 7 months to grow it this long. I have very curly hair so it was nice to wake up and not have to do much to it, I used to spike it or just wear it curly. I think short hair suits a lot of girls. I think you should make sure you do really want it done, as it takes a while to re-grow.

As far as my short hair goes, I just have it above the shoulder, and since I don't like to do my hair in the morning I have a style that all I really have to do is blow dry after a shower and brush in the morning. I like how short hair looks on girls, though, and when I got my short hair is asked my hairdresser what she thought would look good on me and went with it. She's always done good things to my hair. Maybe you can do something similar, ask your hairdresser what they think may look good on you, or to show you examples. Then you can think about those examples for a little bit and see if you really want them, and then go for it! A little experimentation is fine sometimes, and it will grow back.

I used to have reallllly long hair.
Then late last year I cut it and haven't went back. (although I do kinda miss it.)

But mostly, my hair is kinda difficult to manage so i'll either take the time to curl it or I'll throw it back in a pony tail.
My hair's right at my collar bone.
I love it though, it's so much less to deal with.

So dance if it moves you,
and jump in the fire, if it burns you.
I'll throw my arms around you darlin',
and we'll turn to ashes.

Kinda like the way you tell me,
"Baby, please come home. I need you here right now.
I'm crying underwater so you don't hear the sound."

What if I can't forget you?
I'll burn your name into my throat.
I'll be the fire that'll catch you.
What's so good about picking up the pieces?

Of course you can regrow it, if you look on my profile page there is a recent picture of me there with long hair, I am in grade 12 now and I had cut it pretty decently short in grade 10. I had some awesome three colored mad scientist/manga hair that I spiked the shit out of. So I say go for it! Do it up! Especially during summer short hair is nice because it never gets in your way and it's alot cooler.

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
PM me if you need to talk about ANYTHING.
