It is weird to think that a young, gorgeous model with a booming career would change her hair? Giving her that versatile look. However, the cut wasn’t just a simple snip of the scissors, it was an act of courage. Her brunette security blanket is gone and all that’s left is my new obsession and the real Karlie.

From experience, before you take the chopping plunge it’s important to do your homework. Contemplate the stylist, the maintenance and yourself. A short cut is often unforgiving. Any slight imperfection is noticeable, so trusting your stylist is key.

Remember that unless you want the upkeep of styling, try to stick to a cut that will look good with air-dried locks. If you have texture, don’t go for a slick-straight Vidal Sassoon architectural cut, opt for a flowing cut that highlights your texture.

The last piece of advice is to embrace the new you. Short hair takes courage and self-confidence that all the world will see. New year, new changes! Put away the self-doubt and flaunt the things that make you fantastic, with or without the long locks.

  1. I have always encouraged learning…but just got a bad cut ;[

    so IM OFF TO GET A SHORTER FIXER UPPER !

  2. I LOVE the idea of a short hair cut but I always regret it once I do it, lol! I have naturally curly hair and only like it when its styled straight and sometimes I need to throw it in a pony or twist to get it out of the way or wear it curly when I don’t have time to straighten it. Short cuts always make it hard to for me do that 🙁

  3. When I saw this I was very pleased. My daughters said, “Mom, you already have this!” Love the cut. It is very close to what I have now.
