Battle Of The Hair Lengths: Long Versus Short

Long glamorous curls versus short pixie hair cut

It's the question every woman with long hair eventually faces: do you keep your long locks intact or chop it all off and try a spunky short 'do? Here we pit the two classic lengths against one another to resolve this dilemma once and for all!

Long Hair

The hairstyle: The main draw card of medium to long hair is it can be worn in oh-so-many ways. There's straight, curly, crimped, up, down and braided – just to name a few. The world is your hair styling oyster!

The style: Because long hair is so versatile, it opens you up to changing it to suit different looks. For instance, you can wear a long slick pony worn with loud accessories and a popping lipstick one day and then the next day you might channel a hippie vibe with loose long waves and piled on bangles.

What the editors say: Longer hair opens you up to many styling options, but the catch is it requires maintenance in order to stay looking good. In order for long locks to look healthy, you must be vigilant with regular trims and hydration treatments – try the L'Oréal Professionnel Liss Unlimited Masque to keep it nourished and shiny.

Short Hair

The hairstyle: The words "short hair" makes most of us instantly think of super-short hair. While this can be the case, it's not the only option within the short hair styling realm. Short hair can refer to a variety of lengths and styles – for instance, a bob, an undercut, a pixie cut, or even a buzz cut.

The style: One thing is certain with short hair – it makes an undeniable statement. With minimal styling, great make-up and a well-chosen outfit, a short hair style instantly looks polished. This means it doesn't take a lot of effort to have you looking sensational!

What the editors say: The message from the runway is clear: short hair is in! See your stylist to discuss what kind of on-trend short hair style is best suited to your hair type and face shape. If you're feeling nervous about taking the short hair plunge just remember, it will always grow back!
