The One Thing Girls With Short Hair Should Never Do...

Women with short hair are often the envy of other women–many of whom lament that they could never “pull off” a cropped cut like their super-stylish friend. Short hair may be easier to wash and dry, but those who have chopped their locks swear it requires more styling than long hair that can simply be thrown into a bun on bad hair days. But there is one thing girls with short hair should never do if they want to keep their look fresh and fierce: schedule their haircuts the way they did when they had long hair.

“The most important thing about short hair is that the haircut grows out much sooner,” says Sheenon Olson, creative director for ATMA Beauty. “Depending on how short your hair is, you could be looking at having to get your hair cut every 4-6 weeks. With longer hair you can get away with not cutting for three months and the hair cut still looks relatively good. With short hair, the cut grows out fast and many times it looks messy and unkempt or just too shaggy. I always tell my clients that are going short to plan on seeing me within six weeks to freshen up their new style.”

Once you make the choice to cut your hair short, it’s also important to choose products that are right for your hair type, Olson says. With short hair, everything from a gelled strand to a bold red lip makes an even bigger impact because the look short hair gives you can be so much more dramatic. “This will go a long way in helping to tame your thick hair or adding enough texture to your fine hair,” Olson says.
