Short hair, don’t care
People automatically assume that you regret your new haircut and will offer comforting words such as ‘it’ll grow back’, not taking a moment to consider that you actually might like it.
People can still sometimes assume you’re a tomboy because short hair has long been associated with men and long hair with women. More and more often, though, we’ve seen these gender-exclusive associations challenged. Remember the man bun? And the pixie cut trend donned by the likes of Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway? Times are changing.
I whip my hair back and forth
People will express their worry that you can’t really experiment with styles like you would if you had long hair. They’ll ask ‘What if you wanted a ponytail?’ and even ‘So how will you straighten it?’ Ultimately just embrace the length of hair you have at present – you have a different set of options available.
Poor girl’s going through heartbreak
People will assume that you dared to chop your hair off because you’re trying to deal with heartbreak. Chances are, you most likely didn’t do it for a guy, but for yourself.
Time keeping expectations
When you have short hair, people seem less forgiving when you take long to get ready, not bearing in mind you still need to change your outfit several times, apply, remove and reapply your make up… and perhaps take a few selfies.
You’re so brave!
People will praise you for being brave. Maybe you are…for having to deal with all these annoying stereotypes!
