Short hair suits some women well. And they manage to simultaneously look clean cut and low maintenance. Who hasn’t been attracted to something that at least seems to provide an easy solution? But of course we hesitate to cut our hair lest the results prove disappointing; lest we are doomed to a year or more or growing it all out again. You think in this day and age there would be an app to let us see the results in advance.
Well, we can take a good guess whether short hair will suit you based on the length of your face. If you have a longer face, or at least if the lower half of your face is longer, then you are almost always better off with longer hair. If you lower face is shorter there is a good chance you can pull off a short haircut.
The determining factor is the distance between the bottom of your earlobes and the end of your chin. If the vertical distance between the edge of your earlobe and the point of your chin is less than 2 ¼ inches (5 ¾ cm) you can probably find a short cut that suits you well. Any greater than this length than longer hair is probably more flattering.
Shorter hair can be easier to manage, especially in the hotter weather. The trick is getting the right cut. Often women opt for a complete transformation when they go for short hair. A complete colour change, or some great balayage highlights can make all the difference.
The hair length is only one factor. There are always countless ways to colour and style. Balayage dyeing will give the best combination colours; colours swept on look natural, and can always be used to your advantage. Find the style that works for you.
