Short hair is not for everyone. There are several things one should consider before taking on a short cut; this including your face shape as well as the body and condition of your hair.
Many women are wary of having short hair, as they fear that it will look unfeminine. This does not have to be the case. There are many short hairstyles that can look very feminine, with the added bonus of being low maintenance. Short hairstyles will not suit everyone, but if you experiment, you might find that a short hairstyle is actually more flattering than a longer hairstyle.
