No one wants wind up with the dreaded “mom haircut” – it’s worse than wearing “mom jeans.” But let’s be real: After a certain age, dealing with hair that falls well below your shoulders just isn’t worth it anymore. Of course, cutting your hair doesn’t mean you have to settle for a haircut that makes you look like Kate Gosselin.
Short haircuts can be chic, sexy and even edgy. Consider the pixie cut – it looks adorable on famous celebs like Emma Watson and Carey Mulligan, and you just know that super stylish ‘do is as low maintenance as they come. The trick to keeping this style youthful is giving it a bit of texture with some styling cream before you head out the door.
Not quite ready to chop off all your tresses? A chin-length bob is another sassy way to make your look a little easier to keep up with, without sacrificing any of your style. If you’re feeling especially edgy, keep the front just a bit longer than the back for an intriguing and unique twist.
