Simply put, a great hair style portrays you as a confident girl of today and trust me it will get you more eye balls and compliments than just splurging on expensive clothes and accessories. In fact, a change in hairstyle is the easiest way to change the way you look, only prerequisite is that you should be confident about what you do to your hair.

More often than not, I have seen women with long hair just keeping their hair loose and touching their hair every now and then; to me that looks as if they are not comfortable and hey, is that the best you can do with your long tresses? On the other hand women with short hair usually go for ‘safe’ haircuts and are not given to experimenting. I feel short hair look cool, sexy and oh-so-confident (pssst…ya, ya I also have short hair, but that’s not the only reason that I love short hair). And if you use accessories like hair pins, bands and clips with a thought then it can look glamorous as well.
