Shorter Hair Can Make You Look Taller And 4 Other Reasons To Cut Off Your Length

SHARE

There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones who experiment with their haircuts with all the ease of someone picking what topping to go with their triple latte at Starbucks. And the ones who fainted at reading the previous sentence. Apologies for your possible concussion, but if you’ve stubbornly been avoiding a visit to the hairstylist’s to retain your hair length, today’s the day it all changes.

If you absolutely must blame someone, pin it on Kim Kardashian West. The reality diva debuted her new lob at the Met Gala this year. And Bollywood’s best weren’t too far behind; Parineeti Chopra chopped off her long tresses in favour of a shorter ‘do and Alia Bhatt must have loved the results, because she went out and got herself one of those too.

Seeing as everything sounds more convincing when you put it in lists and slap a number on it, here are 5 reasons why you need to get with the ‘It’ haircut of the season.

Why Alia, Parineeti and more are loving the short hair trend

“It won’t suit me.”

“I won’t be able to experiment much with hairstyles.”

Short hair doesn’t mean that you have to pledge undying allegiance to your hair straightener. Opt for a textured half-bun to beat the heat like Ileana D’Cruz or go heavy on the smoothing serum for an extreme side-swept look like Emma Stone.

“I don’t think I have the face type for it.”

“In going for a semi-short cut, keep in mind that it’s all about proportions: The length and the layering should help frame your face into a natural oval proportion and the right length should help accentuate your neckline,” adds Florian.

“It requires a lot of maintenance.”

“A one-length cut (like Kim Kardashian West’s) does require maintenance cuts every 5 weeks,” he concedes before adding, “But a layered cut should sort you out as it requires lesser maintenance.”

“It might look too dramatic.”

You don’t have to plunge headfirst off this particular precipice. If you’re worried about how the results will look, ease yourself in with a layered cut which is less dramatic and alludes to your previous volume.
