Fact: hair acts as a security blanket for many women. If it’s something people didn’t already know, it’s a startling discovery some make when they go in for their first dramatic haircut. (Ever feel your heart sink when you see your long locks on the salon floor? You’re not alone.)
While it’s true that a hairstyle can punch up a person’s appeal and confidence, who says only long-haired girls get to have all the fun? It’s time to stop hiding behind that hair, make your gorgeous face the focal point and see just how fun it is to sport shorter locks. Maybe along the way we can finally bury that dated rule that long hair is for girly girls and short hair is for tomboys. Tell that to Anna Wintour, Coco Rocha, Natalie Portman and these cool-girls.
