Let’s be honest, the way your hair looks can make or break your day. Ladies who wear short styles aren’t entirely exempt from the universal bad hair day, but the odds are more for than against them. Once your hair hits shoulder length, it tends to have a mind of its own. Longer hair is also more prone to damage and breaks, which is never a good look. Crispy frayed ends must be trimmed faster than they appear, lest they make their way up the hair shaft.

I’ve developed a habit of falling down the rabbit hole that is her YouTube channel, where she tutors on loc hairstyles and gives tips for maintenance, for hours at a time. She’s given me the courage to experiment more with my locs, or dreadlocks as some people call them. Keep reading »

I don’t really get it — because it’s generally understood that most guys don’t like short hair. And if guys don’t like short hair then girls aren’t going to get out of their way to get their hair cut short. However, according to Google stats, Emma Watson’s cute little pixy haircut (sorry, I’m biased!) was the most Googled haircut of 2011.
