We have all heard a myriad of myths surrounding women with short hair. “She just had her heart broken.” “She’s an unladylike lesbian.” “She is a rebel.” Any woman with a short haircut will tell you that it does throw some people off and elicit negative reactions. These myths are unfounded claims and generalizations that need to be disputed.
Short hair doesn’t mean anything except for the fact that one might just like short hair. These 12 badass women proved that short is the new sexy.
My new hair made me feel that I will always be the same person, with the same amount of confidence irrespective of how long or short my hair is. Hair is only an accessory, not an imperative.
I have learned to hold my head up higher. It’s been a good experience and I’m planning to go even shorter, as soon as I have the courage!
I never let the criticism or the compliments get to me. I hadn’t bothered to take a public poll insert sarcastic laugh before so why would I subject myself to it now?
