Best Short Dos for Girls

Summer is the perfect time for a short hairdo! If you've been thinking about going short for awhile, now is the time! The shorter your hair, the cooler you will feel. It's a big change though, especially if you are used to having long hair. Not only will the weightlessness of your hair feel weird at first, it may take a few days to get used to seeing yourself with short hair. But don't worry, once you get the hang of how to style your new short do, you'll wonder why you never did it before! Before going to the hair salon (big changes are best done with a trusted hairstylist - never attempt to cut hair on your own!) it's best to do some research on short hairstyles and what style you want. Is it a pixie, a bob with bangs, a messy shag or an asymmetrical bob? When choosing a short do, keep in mind your own hair type and texture and how much time you are willing to spend on styling your hair in the morning. If you don't want to spend time styling it then make sure you ask the stylist for something easy to style and low maintenance. A haircut may look cool in the photos but no one wants to spend their mornings wrestling with hair gel! If you find a celebrity with a short hairdo you like, try to find a few different pictures of it instead of bringing in just one photo. This will give the stylist a better idea of what you want! Which short do is best for you? Check out our celeb gallery!


The Pixie

This gets points for being the boldest short hairdo! There is no hiding with such a short cut so a lot of confidence is needed to pull this off! This cut is best for those with naturally straight hair and medium to thick textured hair. Even if you have a lot of fine hair, it is difficult to style a pixie cut if your hair is baby fine! This cut is adorable and low maintenace!

The Easy Bob

This is a great short do because you still feel like there is some length and if you get it done on the long side then you might be able to still put your hair up!

The Choppy Bob

This short do looks great all messed up. Apply texturizing cream and ask for your bangs to be cut in a way with a lot of texture to play with!

The Shag

This cut has a personality of its own and can be personalized for your hair and style! It might take a bit longer to style but it's very Joan Jett rocker chic!

Maybe they're trying a little too hard to impress you. Maybe they're desperate for a friend and don't want to lose you so they're trying to please you. Just calmly ask them if they could stop trying to be exactly like you and instead be themselves, because people like to be friends who are themselves. Good luck! -HannahG

Hey, just move on. If she/he can't see what a great person you are, then they don't deserve you. You're an amazing person and if they believe differently, then they don't have a clue about what they're missing. -HannahG

Look, I know that it's bad what she did. It's wrong. But there's nothing you can do about that. Let her live her own life, the best thing to do is just leave it alone. If she wants to take care of a child, she'll deal with the consequences. She makes her own decisions, so if that's what she wants then you shouldn't interfere with it. Forget her. Just don't make the same mistake. I know some girls out there believe that their boyfriend totally loves them, and if they have ########### they'll love their girl even more. That's not always the truth. They always say it's not gonna be me, I'm not gonna make the same mistake, my boyfriend loves me no matter what, and they turn out wrong. That's the end of my rant. Just leave her alone, you'll be better off. -HannahG
