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!

Short hair is sometimes awesome. Depends on how it's cute. Not all women want their hair long.

Cyberbullying is just as serious as bullying offline. You should report them, block, and ignore. But if it's a continuous thing you should talk to an adult about it! It doesn't matter if you're on the other side of the world, there are many things law enforcement, even worldwide, can do to take steps in making sure it stops and doesn't happen to anyone else.
