The Benefits of Super-Short Hair

Not to generalize women but (here I go) I think all of us secretly want to chop our hair off. Maybe forever, maybe for a day, but certainly long enough to know and appreciate the ease of a quick shower. I’m consistently frustrated by the amount of hair on my head and resent that the only utility it provides is one better served by a scarf. And yet I never just cut it the fuck off. My irrational fear of going short is the very fuel that powers my obsession with women who do it.

Like, for instance, the four women above. I talked to them to find out how and why they decided to do it. What it’s like? Do they love it? What products do they use? How long does it take to style?! So many Qs, so many As. Click through above to read them all!
