Seems like a no brainer, right? Chop it short and then it doesn’t matter if you can’t have it cut again for a few months. The thing is, short haircuts actually tend to be a lot more high maintenance. Bobs, lobs, pixie cuts all grow out of their ‘style’ much faster than longer hairstyles. Plus, short hair is harder to scrape into a topknot and if lockdown number one taught us anything it’s that topknots are sacred.
