Women instinctively know that their hairstyle helps define their personality as well as their stage in life. It begins when they are in elementary school when many of the girls have long hair. They can tie their hair back in a ponytail and use all sorts of beautiful ribbons.
As they become teenagers, many girls continue to have long hair. They think it is pretty and attractive to the teenage boys they pass in the high school hallways. As a girl becomes a young woman and enters the workforce, she may begin to think about changing her hairstyle. She may even begin to think about short hair styles.
Probably the biggest challenge any woman with long hair has when she tries to decide which of many short hair styles is right for her is picturing how she will look after the hair cut. There is a great scene in the classic movie "Roman Holiday" starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn when Audrey Hepburn goes into a barber shop in Rome with beautiful long brown hair and tells him to cut it off. He is horrified, but she is insistent. Her hair is cut really short, and voila! She looks gorgeous!
Not all of us look like Audrey Hepburn, though, so we can't be sure what we will look like afterward. If we cut it too short, we're stuck with it until it grows back. What's a girl to do?
