Four Reasons to Love Short Hair

by Claire | Nov 20, 2013
  1. Hey hey glam TGs!

    TG Aish has some hair-related blues

    I have really short hair, and it's making me feel a bit self-conscious. It is as short as the average boy's hair, and sometimes people mistake me for a boy. My school doesn't allow fancy clips and hair accessories as it doesn't mix with uniform well, so how can I look like a girl and still abide by school rules? I am growing my hair out, but for the time-being, I don't want to be confused for a boy.

    If you can't wear fancy clips, you can probs still wear simple bobby pins, perhaps in the same hue as your school uniform or house colours. 

    Keep your short 'do girly with cool texture: try messing it up with mousses and gels.

    People know you're not a boy. Also, try not to focus too much on your hair. I bet there's 10 million things more interesting about you than your short locks.

    Love your hair instead! Here are four reasons to embrace it:

    1. Summer is coming and you'll adore the feeling of a breeze on the back of your neck instead of that sweaty sensation. 

    2. Hate waiting for your hair to dry? No probs! When it's short, it's so easy to care for. Drying time is practically non-existant.

    3. Without lots of hair to hide behind, you just might discover a confident new you.

    4. Short hair is made for experimentation! On weekends, try adding some hair chalk for some cray cray colour, tie a headscarf over it, or tuck a fresh flower behind one ear.
