short-haircuts-girlsThat’s the thing about trends, once it sticks, it gets all over the place to the point of redundancy even. Is this the case of SHORT HAIRSTYLES? Do all women chop off their mermaid tresses like demented fashion victims, cause that JLaw woman did, and then Hailee Steinfeld, and then God knows who, and before them it was Rihanna, then Miley and so on? And now we have a world of cute little pixies? hair-trend-shortpixie-cutsDoes the chopping off of our locks have more to do with being fashionably cool, or does it have a hidden subliminal meaning & message behind. Aka: us girls feeling more empowered, liberated, strong – cause you know the shorter the hair, the tinier the problems. Of styling I mean.

Or are we constantly getting over something, or somebody? (and radically change our manes to get our lives back.)

Whatever the case… my money’s on the TREND thing, with a bit of liberation and getting over an idiot. It’s THE thing in town everyone’s doing, like the perm in the 80s. The short cut looks fantastic and it’s reversible. In months, and months, true. But hair grows back, and if patience is not your thing, there’s always the extensions solution. 2014-trend-short-haircelebs-women-short-hairstyleschic-hairstylesWere it not for a beautiful celeb who first cut her long hair, and designers or stylists recommending this sexy androgynous look to everyone under the sun – it wouldn’t have been a trend, and women with long hair and no intention of chopping, would have left their locks intact, and just occasionally dream about cutting it all off whenever Charlize Theron or Halle Berry crossed their screens or minds. Truth is gals… it takes a looooot of balls to go from long hair to short hair, hence the transformation process. hair-trend-2014-shortcharlize-theron-short-hairA lot of questions come up, like: Does short hair fit any face shape? YES – say all the stylists, it’s just a matter of finding the right short cut for your face shape, and finding the features you want to enhance and focus on those (great eyes and eyebrows, cheek-bones, lips, neck). Short hair is not just one hairstyle. Short hair can be chopped, slicked back, with bangs, asymmetrical, curly, straight, wavy, side or back shaved, head shaved, pixie cut, and most of the times… it requires more styling, than long hair. short-hair (2)Of course I’m biased here, cause I’ve had my hair short ages ago (and it had to do less with the trend – which was non existent back then – and more with an idiot and a transformation). But it worked. And I loved it. It wasn’t pixie short, just chopped off in layers up to my cheeks and jawline. It looked fabulous when it was styled, but otherwise, let’s just say I would not have gone out to take the trash even. So… yes I learned to style it in order to love it. And ever since I’ve never made a dramatic change, although the pixie cut is on my mind for at least 1 year. Just don’t have the balls for it, and will probably not have them for sometime. pixie-haircut-lookWomen with short hair have a certain sex appeal to them, they look powerful and very confident in a very feminine cheeky way. Ever since I discovered Micah Ginelli, the blogger who cut her endless exquisite hair that was down to her bum, first by shaving it off on one side, and then by shaving it all off – I’m in love with short hair. No, actually I’m obsessed. She’s one woman who looks so much better with a short cut. And I love her pixie do, cause it’s pretty versatile, it can be styled with a side clean part, with bangs, sleeked back, messy… and fits her style and look so much better. long-hair-micah-ginellishort-hair-women (4)micah-ginelli-shaved-hairmicah-ginelli-hairmicah-ginelli-short-hairmicah-ginelly-hairshaved-head-womenShort hair can look anyway you wish, from professional to wild, to chic or sophisticated – but do all these things translate beyond our heads and minds, or is the SHORT HAIR TREND loved only by women?

What do men think about girls with short hair? 

Is long hair still the utmost definition of femininity? When you say ‘woman’ or ‘girl’ does long hair inevitably come with this image?

For the fun and curiosity of it I’ve asked around a few men what they think of women with short hair. Except for one boy who confessed to be instantly sold on the short hair look in women, and would with no hesitation pick a short haired girl over a long haired one, the rest were in between. Why would this lad pick chopped off hair: for what it stands. ”The girl’s probably free spirited, cool and fun to be around, but very confident, strong and sexy.” There you have it.

Another boy said he’s totally on the long hair team, and confessed he’s an idiot to say it but women are supposed to have long hair.

Well I guess it’s to each their own. It’s not like we don’t have preferences when it comes to how our men look, right?

    I’d cut it to get the ‘damaged women have short hair’ creeps that post in these comments out of my hair. Lol

    According to that philosophy I should hold on to hair for dear life, like its the only way I can veto my health and mental health to the world.

    Just a trip to criminal mug shots will show that crazy can have long hair too.

    I am a woman and I find women with short hair butt ugly, unattrative as hell and very masculine. If a woman wants to be alone for the rest of her life (98% of men find women with short hair repulsive) all she has to do is cut her hair short.
    I always ask myself if millions of women have lost their minds, mirrors and brains. A woman who cuts her hair short is self destructive. Beautiful hair is a sign of health, beauty, fertility and femininity.
    Women with cancer are in despair when they lose their hair. These women know a bald head signals bad health, bad fertility and non-beauty as well as the loss of femininity.
    Who in their right mind would do something like this – cutting hair as short as possible – when healthy? Only self destructive women brainwashed by the media and the ugly fat feminist pigs who want to
    destroy all beautiful women still left so they don´t have any competition and the poor men have to choose a fugly woman or stay single.
    What the men of western countries eventually will do is look for beautiful women in other countries in which westernization hasn´t ruined women yet.
    Women in Russia, Poland, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil for example are all very very feminine. They take care of themselves, have beautiful long hair, feminine bodies, no tattoos, know how to be sexy in a classy way and would never give up being a woman and most importantly they don´t see men as enemies.
    The pictures of short haired women on this site are just butt ugly, wrong and not attractive at all. Women who find such haircuts beautiful are delusional and self desructive and it is a shame that these women don´t realize what they do to themselves.

      Oh you poor, provincial little fool. Sweetie, your hair doesn’t make you beautiful or ugly. And while personality is obviously the most attractive thing about a person (or in your case, “repulsive,” to use your own words) what generally garners the most attention and initial attraction is your body and your face. I’m going to infer that you are a disgusting, 500 pound loser with an IQ lower than your beauty on a ten point scale (by which I will guess is roughly a 1), as only someone thorougly unhappy with themselves would claim something so ingonrant and passionately vicious. You madam, are the scum of the earth, and I hope that you have learned to cope better with women more beautiful than yourself liberating themselves from the social expectation of having long hair in the 2 years since you posted this. You’ll probably never see this, but if you do, just know that I think it is a miracle that you are even competent enough to know how to read, write, and use a computer! Well done!

        I do not think women are REPULSIVE with short hair; it’s just that virtually all women look better with longer locks. There is great mystique, power and sensuality in a woman’s long hair.

      Lol, women in Russia wear short hair quite often and its common for hair cutteries to know how to cut short haircuts for women of all ages, unlike I found it to be in America – people in United States adhere to some weird hair dogma to the point of wearing their ratty, damaged hair to their detriment but “as long as its long”.

    I recently donated my hair that was halfway down my back and went straight into a pixie cut. I’ve never had anything shorter than my shoulders before. I absolutely love my hair. I love playing with styles and how easy it is for me, not to mention cooler. The only bad thing is I’ve gotten a lot of negative feedback from men saying that my longer hair was more beautiful than the freedom I feel now…. And that honestly hurts every time no matter how many times I hear it…. I wouldn’t take my decision back for anything, but of something could change the hearts of the men that I’ve talked to about the way they view women with short hair that would be great. My short hair doesn’t allow me to hide behind locks anymore. I have to be myself now, it’s not an option.

    I had hair past my shoulders and decided to cut it into a chin length Bob, then I went for a pixie cut and I’ve just been going shorter and shorter ever since. I had always had long hair, but it was so boring! I can’t stand styling my own hair so I always just straightened it. After cutting it all off I felt like a completely different person. I finally felt like I was no longer hiding behind my hair. I had always been jealous of girls with short hair and thought I could never pull it off, but now I know I can! I have noticed less guys hit on me after cutting off my hair, but the ones who hit on me now that I cut my hair have nicer things to say. When I had long hair I heard a lot of “Hey sexy” and rude things along those lines. Now that I have short hair, when I guy hits on me they say things like “you’re beautiful”. With short hair you’ll always run into a few rude people who say “are you a lesbian” or my favorite “Why don’t you grow your hair out? You looked so much prettier” and in those situations, you just have to smile and walk away.

    I have super fine wavy hair, but a lot of it. It’s very fragile and breaks easily no matter what. I cut all of it off into a Ginnifer Goodwin inspired style. I was scared but knew my hair would look a million times better without the fries and breakage. I have never felt better than I do with my long pixie. I feel confident. Like it fits my style and the hubby loves it!
    I will agree that not everyone should try it, but I don’t think height or weight should matter. I am medium built and 5’10. I have high cheek bones and big almond shaped eyes. The cut really suits me despite my height. I think most women know what will look best on them, it’s just finding the courage to go with it!

    In a society that blatantly hates men and has been skillfully organized around the needs of women. It is no surprise that women cut their hair off. No matter if conscious or not it is a clear indicator of the utter contempt that women have for their own femininity. It is a clear extension of the feminist manifesto and also a sign of how far the ideology of hate has penetrated young women’s minds. It is also a sign of the narcissistic attention whoring behavior of most women today who are led by ego and a relentless feeling of entitlement. As the world crumbles around them they set their focus on their own interests and showing off to each other. Materialism, capitalism, hatred of men and the cancer of feminism have produced this and it is going to get a lot worse. A sick society produces sick results.

      @Logan:
      My “cancer of feminism” is one known as ovarian cancer. I had hair down to my breasts but because of upkeep and treatments, I now have a pixie cut. I have both good and bad days where I love and loathe my hair and I am sure I will eventually grow it back out again, if I live. However, if I do live, I may eventually cut it short again. It is just f&$@ing hair. Men can have long hair, why may women not have short hair without being men-hating feminist cancers upon our societies? Please check yourself. I will definitely be saying a prayer for you and your hatred of women (that you seem to confuse as womens’ hatred of men). I am not a self-professed feminist but d*mn dude. Chill the hell out.
      Are you stuck on “…a woman’s hair is her crowing glory [sic]…?”

      Right… So you look through that lens, judging every woman with short hair without knowing her story or reasons? Maybe try to learn to see a person beyond their hair.
      What if she’s on a professional swim team? Professional dancer? Has a thyroid condition that makes long hair look less pristine? Has recently battled cancer? Doesn’t have time to style because of shower or time issues? Has a petite frame that short hair suits better? There are plenty OF normal and healthy reasons to have a different haircut. If short hair was the norm, then people would go after long haired women calling them purposefully showy and promiscuous. Heck knows. Definitely a lack of understanding that a real woman isn’t just an idea but a person.

      In Europe, its pretty normal and feminine to have all kinds of haircuts, including short. America is just catching on that short hair =/= angry gay feminazi doing it on purpose to personally fuck up how things should be according to your ill-inclusive worldview.

    I love short hair, but I have hair past my waist and I think it would be way too dramatic to cut it all off! I’ve always wanted to be brave and have a pixie cut like Twiggy, but I think I will be keeping my long locks for now. I think cutting it short can be an empowering thing to do – long hair is usually a symbol of femininity, so too cut it short is such a great statement. All these women in your post look amazing with short hair.

      Back in the 90’s, I grew my hair to my waist–immaculate, shiny dreadlocks that had their own fan club. Then I decided to chop them. I just loved how cool and sexy extremely short hair looked, and I was actually annoyed because friends took it so personally that I’d cut such long hair! But I HAD to. My stylist friend was horrified–he refused to chop the dreads and said if I did it, he’d give me the polished cut. He couldn’t believe when I came back the next day and sat in his chair, dreads gone. I love both, and have had fans of both. I’ve had more people ask if I was a model with the short look, though. It’s just hair, who cares?

    I think one of the reason so many celebrities are going for the cut is because it’s so easy for them to go long again. Extensions are as common as anything today. While the average women is making a serious commitment when cutting her hair, a celebrity is just trying out a trend.

    I had short hair all my life, and decided to grow it out to ‘get it out of my system’. Then I had an operation that went wrong and ended up in a coma… My first thought after I woke up in the ICU was “I hate long hair. I nearly died with this terrible hair.’ … Lol… For real, that was my first thought. The minute I was able, I chopped to a long bob, but 6 months later my hair started falling out from the shock and drugs… Last Tuesday, after too much hair had fallen out, I just cropped it all off. Oh my gosh, I’ve never felt so good about a haircut, and I love getting my hair cut! I forgot how much I love short hair. Everyone thought I’d be devastated, but it was like the reverse Samson effect. I chopped my hair off and got all my powers back. I feel so much hotter and confident with short hair. Everything seems to fall in to place clothing and make up wise. When I have long hair I feel bland and wishy-washy…. Everyone just needs to have the hair they feel best in, be that long or short….

    For me, I had to do a la chop after years of back to back braids, cornrows and weaves. I totally neglected what lay underneath and my hair was a mess, and I was beginning to bald at the sides. It was one of the hardest things I ever did, as I was used to a body of hair falling on my face, rocking my fringe… I also felt it made me less unattractive and initially it was hard to look at myself in the mirror. And then one day ‘My Saviour’ came in the shape of a sexy foetus, i.e. a veeery young guy and we had a brief fling but he totally loved my hair and was so into it/me, and yes I am not ashamed to say that was what really helped to pull me out of my funk, A Man, Ha!!

I think shorter hair can be nice but pixie short is a no-no in my eyes.There are veeeery few women who look good with so short hair. I definitely couldn’t rock it. Maybe I was influenzed by my father who always said that long hair are a must for a women, something that makes them beautiful. And I have to say also my husband is pretty “protective” when it comes to my hair, he’s always worrying that I don’t use too much heat or products to ruin them :D I think it might be in mens dna to love long hair or something like that :D
