I have always been afraid of what I thought would happen to me if I cut my hair short…and none of the things I was dreading did. I feel more like myself than I ever have. I would never have gone through with the cut without all of the inspiration from this blog; you are all beautiful people. Thank you! 

So, just like many others here. I was contemplating for weeks about cutting my hair short. I was afraid I might look more ‘fat' or I had too much of a round face to pull it off. And I was afraid that I would look like a boy! But I realized something larger than all of this, it was how much I held on to my hair like some sort of security blanket. When I felt ‘too fat’ I would focus on my hair to try and make me look ‘prettier’. And that’s not healthy, I should feel beautiful no matter my size! I realized I was my own worst enemy in this world. No one else hurt me like I hurt myself all the time, and no one else bullied me except me! So, I found this page and seen so many women with the pixie cut. And I could see so much confidence and power in them all. So I went to my local Great Clips, I told that lady to chop it all off into a pixie cut! At first she thought I might’ve lost a bet or something, I said nope and that I was only nervous! lol. At first when I felt my long beautiful hair fall off, my stomach dropped to my feet. But when I opened my eyes and she was done, I felt like a whole different girl. I felt empowered, stronger and so much happier! If you really wanna try the pixie cut, DO IT! Don’t hold back your life until you’re ‘skinny’ or change your face shape. I say screw what the media and society say and DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY! <3 Much love to all these beautiful ladies!

My hair used to be down to my chest, and I have always kept it that way, only because I was always told I did not have the face for short hair. I got married on May 31st 2014 and I got my hair bleached for the wedding, and after a month of struggling with the dry mess i called my hair I really wanted to cut it all off. Everyone said they thought it would look okay but I had a round face. But I came onto here saw all of these girls looking beautiful with short hair and it gave me the courage to walk into the salon and chop about 12 inches of my hair off.. Now even the stylist kept begging me not to cut it off, and even asked ” is your husband okay with you cutting your hair all off, he did marry a woman??” I was set on short hair..  Now I have thick curly dry frizzy hair and i love this short, it is not necessarily easier, but it feels better and I feel like it fits me better.  

Hi ladies!
Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! As for myself I’ve had it pretty tough lately. Reason why the posts delayed and why I haven really posted lately. But things will get better an I will get better at this.

Love you ladies. You keep me happy when everything else is falling apart.

Don’t forget to submit.
