Recently I questioned why I decided to cut my hair. Really, are the advantages and disadvantages of having short hair any different to having longer hair? Honestly, short hair takes a lot of maintenance but at the same time is very manageable. Longer hair, on the other hand, yes it requires maintenance but we tend to brush it back into a ponytail or just clip it up or wear it down. In my opinion, shorter hair also tends to suit those with a little extra flesh on their faces, like me.
