Depending on your personality, if you are thinking about going from long hair to short, you make want to give the decision some careful thought or you may just “go for it” on a whim.

Either way, it is a good idea to make sure you choose a new style that is right for you. The expert stylists at Swanky Salon are knowledgeable in all the latest hairstyles, and can help you choose a style that best fits your face and your personality.

If you are someone who really likes to think a big decision through, consider cutting your hair shorter, but not short. Ease into shorter hair with a medium length cut before you go full out pixie. Going directly from long hair to short hair is a dramatic change, and if you don’t like it, it will take quite a while to grow it back.

On the other hand, if you opt to go medium length first, it will allow you to become accustomed to shorter hair and see if you want to take that next step. Medium length hair is versatile. You can still wear it up or down.

One more word of caution…if your long flowing locks are your best feature, maybe short hair is not for you. However, if you are impulsive and love drastic change, short hair may be just the thing!
