Living in Florida for most of my life, I made the decision to maintain shorter length hair. Though many women kept their tresses long and covering their neck, there was something about that ridiculous heat that made me opt for a shorter style all those years. With my shorter style though, came the challenge of finding something to do with it other than wear it down. Now, having cut my hair even shorter, having easy hairstyles for short hair to revert to has been a savior.
Whether you're a woman with newly natural hair or one that just changed up her look by taking a few inches off, getting used to your new shorter style can be difficult. For me, finding different things to do with my hair when I cut it was annoying and discouraging. But once I jumped on YouTube and started discovering all the wonderful hairstyles that I could recreate with my shorter 'do, I started having a little fun with my hair again.
Changing up your look can be a scary thing. That's why doing a little research to make sure you can handle what you're looking to do can come in handy. If you're thinking about getting the big chop or just looking for a way to fab up your currently drab look, these 15 tutorials can help.
