8 Reasons NOT To Cut Your Hair Short
As I peruse the internet I have come to the sad realization that many websites pander to insecure trendy type women using lists giving “101 reasons why you should cut your hair immediately”
01. It is very high maintenance
You have to constantly wash, trim, and use products that are harsh on your hair to keep it looking slightly better than abysmal. These products and regular trims and washes in turn hinder your hair’s growth and many are stuck in a short hair cycle for years.
02. Very few people are attracted to it
The sad reality is that less than 6% of the population actually PREFERS short hair. This includes males and females judging other females. Facts don’t care about your feelings. You can tell yourself you look cute all you want, while your girlfriends stroke your ego to your face and exchange high fives behind your back because your no longer competition. Most men and lesbians prefer women with long hair. Why do yourself and others a disservice like cutting your hair short.
03. You will hate it and hate yourself eventually
It is a fact that 98% of women regret cutting their hair short at some point in their life. Chances are so will you. You will look at yourself every day and miss the woman you once were who had effortless beauty and self-confidence. You’ll notice once minor imperfections much more clearly. This in turn will start to turn your attitude bitter and you may start hating men for not taking responsibility for the patriarchy or something and they should date you or they’re a toxic male?
04. The excitement will wear off
Eventually you’ll disappear amongst the other basic females. Blending into a sea of “men” copycats. Stuck in a cycle of hair abuse to keep their short hair looking semi appropriate for everyone else in public’s sake.
05. All of your relationships will suffer
Because you will take out your bitterness on others. If your partner is selfless enough to be by your side after your transition you will surely run them off with your incessant bitching and complaining which can be traced back to hatred of your hair. Your parents may feel embarrassed by you and that they have to explain to their friends that you’re “going through a phase” and assure them you’re not suddenly gay. (Not that there’s an issue with that but the assumption is usually there when a woman has short hair.)
06. You will confuse people
Seriously why leave it a question about your sexuality. Do you really want to explain to everyone that the reason you have short hair has nothing to do with being a man hater or some hysterical young girl? No one will believe you when you try to explain you like it. You won’t believe yourself either, or you’ll hate yourself more for constantly having to lie to yourself.
07. Growing out process takes a very long time
If you want to grow long beautiful hair and do it in a way that leaves you feeling attractive and not like an awkward middle schooler, it could take years to get it to your shoulders. Why waste all your hard work of growing your hair out only to have to start all over again and not look or feel your best in the process?
08. You won’t feel empowered, that’s propaganda
If anything, you will feel acute loss of power. Your feminine power will no longer work and you’ll be seen as “not a threat” or “one of the guys” At first you’ll feel high viewing your new look but that should wear off within a day when you realize you have just made your life a whole lot more difficult.
Don’t Be Lied To
After my vast search on the web for the lies and false advertising of short hair, I have come to the sad realization that many social media posts are made from insecure want to be trendy women. All of those short hair cut posts are lies of course, propagated to the most vulnerable consumers of our economy. See another list “6 reasons men love short hair.” The young, hipster college aged liberal elitists who don’t know who they are, so they cut their hair short and create an identity around it. Rather than doing what intelligent women do by maintaining our femininity whilst also having an identity defined on pretty much anything but our hair. Our hair is just a bonus for both us and whomever lays their eyes upon us. Here is a list I formulated comprised of 8 reasons not to cut your hair short.
