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!

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
