Short or Long Hair?

Haircut Styles presents Short or Long Hair?

Are you considering cutting your hair short? Before you take the plunge, it’s important to know whether short or long hair is right for you. The first thing you need to consider is how attached you are to your long locks. If your emotional bond to your hair is a strong one, you may not be happy when it gets cut off. However, if you decide you can handle the change, the next thing to look at is your face structure.

This is actually the most important consideration when choosing a hair length. The shape of your face plays a big part in what length hair suits you best. People who have a square shaped face tend to find that short cuts do not flatter them. Also, people with round faces benefit from having extra height at the crown. They can still go short, but should be wary of cuts that are flat. Finally, those with longer faces actually look better with shorter hair, but their face can look awkward if the cut is overly cropped. So, once you’ve checked out your face shape, the last thing to think about is your lifestyle. Do you have enough time to take care of long hair each day? Are you willing to get your short cut trimmed frequently? These are questions to think about as they will affect how well you maintain your look.
