When I was a kid, I had a long blonde ponytail that ran all of the way down my back. Around fifth grade, I got my first taste of short hair, a shoulder length bob that wasn’t the most fashionable, but much more manageable. From that point on, my hair went from long to short numerous times, but for the last few years, I’ve fallen in love with short hair and I don’t plan on going back to long hair anytime soon.
I’m here to tell you, if you want to try short hair, what are you waiting for? I’ve heard the laundry list of reasons why ladies don’t want to take the plunge, but those reasons are silly. There is no reason to be scared of short hair, plus it will grow back if it’s not your style. If you are wanting to try a shorter hair style, you must find a great hairstylist you trust. They will be able to select a style that will compliment your face shape and personal style – which is key to short hair.

I love having short hair because it is easy to care for. Lately, I have been using the Goody Clean Radiance brush featuring copper bristles that help reduce natural buildup. Because my hair has less build up, it looks healthier and more radiant. The copper bristles feel like a little massage when brushing and the flexible cushion pad makes brushing more comfortable.If you are in the market for a new brush – I highly recommend the Goody Clean Radiance.
Bobby pins are perfect addition to any short hair cut and are easy to dress up with an easy DIY.
Goody bobby pins
Assorted beads and baubles to adorn the bobby pins
Super glue (I love Gorilla Glue)
Michael’s has a large selection of beads in every color. I also used nail polish to paint a few of the heart beads and bobby pins different colors.
Tip: Use beads that have flat backs, they will be easier to affix to the bobby pins.
To adorn your bobby pin, place a small dot of glue on the back of a bead. Place the closed end of the pin in the glue and hold it there until the glue starts to dry. Let the glue dry overnight and your bobby pins will be ready to wear.
