Long Or Short Hair? Is It Time For A Change?

Of all the ways that we can express ourselves – hair is one of them. Pink hair, blue hair, crops, no hair, hair down to our butts. Space buns, glamorous updos and more! Our hair gives us the chance to change our looks every single day. And where once upon a time, if we had the big chop, we’d need to wait years for it to come back in length – that is no longer the case.

So is it time for a big change? Long hair or short hair? Let’s take a look. 


Long hair pros

Long hair has a lot of pros, but if your hair grows slowly, you can skip the wait with extensions like those from The London Hair Lab, wigs or a weave. 



Often one of the biggest changes is to go short, making long hair one of the safest options if you aren’t ready for anything radical. 



So long as your hair is in reasonable condition, longer hair is flattering on almost anyone. When it is styled to suit your face shape, with feathering, layers and some shape, it can be effortless too.



You can get confidence from both short and long hair, but there is something about long glossy locks that makes people feel fantastic. You can add hair charms, braids and more to give you even more of a cool look. 



Long hair gives you the ability to fake a fringe, create a bob with some carefully placed hair pins, crimp, braid, curl, straighten, and so much more. Depending on the thickness, you can create countless looks. 


Short hair pros

Perhaps you are considering the big chop and going shorter than a bob. Short styles have a lot of pros – and are great for those who either don’t want to or don’t have time for long hair care. 



Wash and go sound good? Depending on your hair type and how short your hair is, you can potentially get away with a wash-and-go style. While hair will always need a little bit of maintenance, you won’t need to do too much. And, as a bonus, you’re going to use less product – saving cash! 



If you have always had long hair, going short is going to be transformational – in fact, research shows that having your hair cut short can make you feel like a whole new person. 



There is no denying that long hair goes through a lot, and unless you have a strict trim schedule and plenty of hair care sessions in between, it can look less than healthy. Not everyone has the time or the budget to dedicate to hair care, and a short hairstyle releases you of these demands. 


To the salon! Once you have kinda-sorta made your mind up about what you want to happen with your hair, go and have a chat with your chosen hairstylist. They will be able to bring your vision to life while adding their own twist – not to mention make sure that it looks stunning on you.
