15 Haircut Transformations That Prove Long Hair Isn’t Always Better Looking

When beauty salons were closed in our area at the beginning of the pandemic, I decided to let my hair grow instead of trimming it myself. As time went on, my hair got longer and longer. It has been over a year, and my hair is pretty long. While it’s tempting to let it keep growing, it’s also tempting to chop it off.

If you have ever had long hair, you know that you will end up getting some compliments about the long locks. Some people will tell you not to cut it. You also know that in reality, long hair can be heavy and get in the way. While it’s true that hair will always grow back, it can be a serious decision about whether or not to get a completely new hairstyle. Growing out hair takes time.

If you can relate to the conundrum about whether or not to chop off your hair, these before and after photos might convince you to join team haircut instead of team let it grow. Sometimes shorter hair really does look better than longer hair, and these photos prove it. We can also see how much happier the people in these photos look with their new shorter styles. They seem to love the new look, and that self-confidence is way more important than long hair.
