No matter what hairstyle you choose, it is important for the hairstyle to not only fit your facial shape and skin tone, but it must fit your personality too. In spite of the fact that hair grows out, you have to be comfortable with the style from the beginning. Most of us do not have the luxury of calling our employer and saying "I'm not coming to work for the next few weeks because I don't like my new haircut." Probably more than any other hairstyle, short hair takes courage because if you don't like it, other than a wig, there is nothing you can do about it. You must be patient and wait for Mother Nature to change the length.
Short hairstyles have been popular for women since the 1920's. Louise Brooks's bob hairstyle in 1917 became the most popular hairstyle of the 1920's. Women of this time period threw out their corsets as they ventured out on a quest for freedom and they began cutting their hair short. Short hair became the new hairstyle for women as they entered the workforce. Short hair has long sense been a symbol of freedom and professionalism for women.
