One of the gals that works at the hair salon I go to has short hair. And I love it. It always looks sexy and fashionable, and she swears it takes her next to no time to get ready in the morning.

Now, I’m in no way ready to do something drastic and cut off my long locks, but after chatting with her at length on NYE while I was getting my hair dyed for the first time in my entire life (!!!!!), I was inspired to do some research on short hairstyles for women. And you know what? I loved everything I saw.

So I decided to throw them all into a post in hopes I can give some encouragement and inspiration to anyone who is either contemplating chopping their hair off, or has been sporting short hair for years.
