Short Hair Don’t Care

Published in: Daily Beauty

So, um…this happened!


So much for keeping it long. El Hub is super cranky, LOL! You know boys and long hair… Whatevs, he’ll get over it. ๐Ÿ™‚

My friend Alis at Fox + Stone salon in Corte Madera did a loose a-line razor cut. See how it’s shorter in the back and slightly longer in the front?


She kept the same base color, a warm chocolate, and added copper highlights.

I’m really happy with how it turned out! Even though I love having long hair, my head feels so much lighter now. I no longer feel like I’m wearing a 10-pound hat. And if I get bored, I’ll just start the long process of growing it out again. Gives me something to do!

  8. Katherine M says:

    Wow! I love it! It is still long enough to put it up but short enough to be a good change. I’ve been debating doing the Posh Spice bob for a while, but this is something in the middle that would be fun. Thanks for the inspiration and you look amazing as always! <3

  9. Jenn says:

    WOW, you look amazing. That’s not even short. It’s so cute!

    It kind of bothers me when people are like that about hair :-/
    Men and women have the same capability to grow long hair. I don’t know why it’s seen as this inherently feminine, pretty thing. I’ll still be a woman if I have short hair, and a man will still be a man if he has long hair. I just don’t get it!!

  24. Jae says:

    You look amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m torn if I want to cut my hair or not. I want Anne Hathaway’s pixie cut! Ahaha.


  25. Nik says:

    My guy is like that too, he didn’t want me to get bangs but I did anyway and I’ve had them for 4 years now (evil laugh) :{D it’s more about what makes me feel pretty and it’s not come up since, I suppose it doesn’t matter as much to him as I had thought! ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Carina says:

    So beautiful and fresh! When I cut my hair (shorter than yours), my girlfriend was a little “EHGJFHAJSKFA!!!” about it, too, but then she, in time, admitted that it looked better on me. So YAY.

  37. Bella says:

    You have the best hair EVER and I love this style!! I saw a picture of you on another blog yesterday and it struck me that you wore your hair up, and while I thought, “What a waste of all that gorgeous hair!!!” , I understood that in hot weather it must just be easier to tie it up and away. So I can imagine that going shorter really lightens you up!!!
    I’m also glad it’s still mostly dark; it suits you so much better than ligher hair! This hairdo rocks!
    (I am not stalking you, but I’ve been researching a lot of products to which I suddenly have access because Sephora now ships to the Netherlands, and then I often find your reviews LOLOL!)

  38. Agata says:

    Karen, this haircut looks fabulous on you! I like it even better than your long hair and you know how much I loved your long hair!

  39. you look fantastic with the razor bob! really suits you. It was my favourite hairstyle for awhile but atm I’m growing my hair out….might actually need a cut soon!

  40. Colleen says:

    You look absolutely stunning!

  41. Sandy says:

    Stunning, Karen, simply stunning! No other word will do.

  42. Grlnxdor says:

    Karen your new cut is absolutely gorgeous!! It just makes you look so fresh and sophisticated! Don’t pay too much attention to what hubby thinks. Btw, if he thinks your new style is “short hair” he would probably cringe if he saw me sporting my chin-length modified bob. Shorter hair styles often help accentuate bone structure and end up making you look even better yet many women just can’t let go of long hair.

  43. Maddie says:

    I think it looks lovely on you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Really classy but also feminine, and in my opinion not short at all (when I think of short hair, I think Mia Farrow crop). It’s also really easy to grow out too from this length.
    Considering doing a cut like this myself this summer, going off to South America for work so won’t have time to style and look after my stupidly long hair.

  44. Icequeen81 says:

    looks good and healthy

  45. brenda says:

    Looks sooooo good!!!

  46. Caroline says:

    really, so gorgeous Karen !!! Every woman who has long hair want to take a step to a shorter cut at a time of her life. You choose the right length, not to short, still long, and it definitly emphasizes your femininity. As a french woman, i’m saying : “magnifique!”

    It still looks long, medium-long :)) I strongly dislike guys that prefer long hair, lol. I like all lenghts.

  51. Shannon says:

    Love this!! I did something similar last fall when I wanted a change from my long locks… went from that, to more of a chin-length bob, and then finally worked up to a pixie cut! My hubby wasn’t the happiest either, haha ๐Ÿ˜‰ but he’s getting used to it!

  52. Ashleigh says:

    It’s a great look on you, and the highlights are really nice!

  53. Kwmechelle says:

    Dayum! Dayum! Dayum! (in my Florida Evans voice from Good Times). Totally rocks! LOVING the cut & color combo. You be killin’ it dude!

  58. BETSY C. says:

    Karen, doggone it…you really couldn’t be any cuter! El Hubs will love it in a day or so- trust me on this! You just rock that cut. Doesn’t it feel good to make a change sometimes?! Yes…it does.

  60. Michele says:

    Your new haircut is gorgeous!! I also love the rich, chocolate-y color & highlights. I think it’s a great change for the warmer months ahead. The length is versatile-you can wear it up or down, and if you decide you want it long again, you won’t need to wait forever.

    Have a great weekend,


  61. Jennifer says:

    I love it! It looks beautiful on you.

  62. Allie says:

    That cut looks great on you. I too cut A LOT off last month from all the way down my back to shorter than your cut. I’ve been getting a lot of comments from that it looks good but also, “Does your fiance mind that you cut your hair?” I really don’t care what my he thinks actually, but he likes it. I know the feeling that it feels so much lighter. It has been so much easier to manage.

  63. prerna dua says:

    You look gorgeous!!! I’m inspired to change my hair style now

    You look wonderful! ๐Ÿ™‚

  66. Alice Ann says:

    Looks lovely! Modern and sophisticated, and really not that short!

  67. Chelsea says:

    Your hair looks great! I recently cut mine to a similar length, maybe a little bit shorter, which is the shortest it’s been since middle school! My husband had the opposite reaction though, he said I should have gone shorter!

    The red in my hair looks brighter shorter too, it seems like. The ends of my hair weren’t in great condition.

  68. May says:

    Oooohhhlala!! Love the hair Karen! Yes, EL Hub will have to get over it. It is the perfect summer hair cut for you. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Love it! The highlights look really natural. And I’d say to El Hub that’s still a decent length (my man is the same about long hair, but complains about finding strands everywhere!). ๐Ÿ™‚
