One of the great mysteries of the world just might be figuring out if you can pull off short hair or not. Hair grows back, sure, but being a gal on top of her game it’d be better to know beforehand! Luckily, there’s an easy trick you can try that will let you know if you can go short or not.
Get Your Rule On
One disclaimer before the secret is revealed – there are exceptions to every beauty rule. At the end of the day you’re the one that has to like how your mop is cropped, so you should go with whatever style makes you happy and makes you feel good about yourself.
Now then, here’s the trick: put a pencil or pen under your chin horizontally, and then put a ruler under your ear vertically. Next, measure the height of where the pencil and ruler intersect. If it’s less than 2.25 inches, feel free to go for the pixie plunge. If the measurement is longer than 2.25 inches then longer hair would be your best bet.
That’s it – the whole secret! Once you’ve decided what you want, talk to you stylist. Any stylist worth their shears will let you know what they think about the style you’re going for, and more than likely can tailor it just for you. So, what are you waiting for?
