While you can't just put it back in a ponytail if you're short on time or having a bad hair day, it's great for many other reasons. First, it has a little bit more tailored look - you have no choice but to do it. Second, since there aren't many options for different styles once you have your cut (you can't do an up-do, ponytail, braid, etc. like with long hair), it leaves open the opportunity to have fun with cute earrings (there's no hair hiding your ears!) and different make-up. I've been having fun wearing earrings that previously couldn't be seen with my long, dark hair. Lastly, short hair is a great way to wear hair jewelry like cute barretes, etc.
Short hair can be sexy, sassy and cute - it's truly all in your attitude. Plus, it needs to be cut usually every 6 weeks, and who doesn't love going to the salon for a shampoo and haircut? It's a great excuse for a little mini-relaxation session! Try it - you might like it! (If not, it will always grow back) :-)
