I recently read an article about Model Ruth Bell and why she decided to shave her head on TeenVogue. It's not always easy in the modeling world especially if you have to give up on your own style preference and to accommodate to the runway.
Ruth Bell landed on a McQueen campaign and the one condition she has to follow to actually get the job is to buzz her head. Without thinking twice she shaved her long hair. Surprisingly, she really likes the cut and felt more free. One statement from the interview that has caught my attention was this.

Society thinks long hair equates WITH ‘pretty,’ but I never really had an attachment to mine — I’ve always considered hair more of a nuisance than something that I liked to have and, you know, do things with.

It's true society has shape our mind to thinking long hair is beautiful and attractive while short hair is not as pretty. In another sense, I think long hair is like a security blanket. It's something you've been with for a long time and it's hard to let go.
So, the one thing I learned from this interview is don't let society define what is pretty!
I think that short hair is beautiful. whose to say that long hair is prettier... If thats the truth then what are we saying about people with cáncer that have lost their hair. beauty come from within. As a cáncer survivor. hair is awesome but does not define us. we are all beautiful!!!
not everyone looks great with long hair, same for short hair, you should wear whatever style flatters your facial shape and features. I prefer medium length (shoulder length) for myself and sometimes go to chin length for a change. my hair is fine and anything longer looks stringy and unkempt.
I just recently cut my hair short after having it long for the past two years, in have to admit that I feel more confident and more attractive with shorter hair.
Well, I've always loved short hair yet it doesn't really go with me since I don't wear make up... I end up looking like a guy. Long hair never looked good on me... It's either short hair or medium size hair.
I cut Mt hair short last year after having it very long. and I can say that people are starting to like shorter because I know it makes us feel great. but I love both and tbh people shouldn't be able to judge if a person is "pretty" just by the length of their hair. society sucks
