SHORT HAIR 2017What do you want for your short hair in 2017? This is not going to be an ode to New Year’s Resolutions. Why? Because they suck and what it takes to commit to something and see it through, has nothing to do with what month it is.

Ok, rant over. Now, back to what we’re all here for. Short hair talk. Not setting what is known as a traditional New Year’s Resolution doesn’t mean that you can’t have hair goals. We all do. There’s a head of hair on somebody else that you would love to be able to transplant onto your own head. That, my friend, is #hairgoals.

But, when we look at what we can and want to do with our own head of hair, we can get into identifying what steps we need to take to get ourselves closer to rocking the best head of hair we can with what grows from our own scalps.

What do you want for your short hair in 2017?

Color anyone?

A little while back, I dyed my hair red. I was itching for something new, I did it and then I quickly got over it. It was an itch that had been scratched and that was that. You can watch my video where I talk about how I did it and what products I used.

It doesn’t mean that I won’t want to venture into a new color again soon, but as for right now, the jet black look is what suits me.

How about you? Do you want to try a new color? Is it a lighter color that you’ll need to plan out and do in steps? If so, when do you plan to take that first step?

I’ve written about how updating your short cut can do wonders for bringing you into current times and out of whatever era you’re stuck in. It’s true. A banging cut can get you from 2004 to 2016 in about an hour.

That’s not all a cut can do for you, though. It can also change the way your face looks. It can change the way your accessories and make up look. There’s a ripple effect to a haircut.

Maybe 2017 means you will change from wearing the classic super short pixie to one with a longer or fuller bang. Maybe you will grow your hair into a very short bob. Or, perhaps, you will reach into your bag of tricks and pull out an ole nasty undercut. Who knows.


If a better cut is what you’re aiming for, study your face, consider your lifestyle and look at as many pictures as you can. I’d also suggest you go to a professional to get the cut done for the first time. After that, it will be easier for you to mimic the shape and style and recut your hair at home.

What about me?

As for me, I plan to focus on keeping my hair full. This year, 2016, I cut my pixie into a shorter version of the style. From time to time, I do that. Then, at other times, I will grow my short cut out into a longer version of the pixie. When I grow my hair out this way, it looks like a bowl cut. Below is a video of how I create a sleek pixie when my hair is a little bit longer.

So, for 2017 I’m going to grow my hair out a little, but I’m going to update the cut. I want the cut to still remain a pixie, but with more fullness and a tab bit more length. Instead of the bowl or short bob look, I’m gonna be rocking a more tousled look.

At least, that’s the plan. Knowing me, I’ll get a hair up my ass and do God knows what to my hair. But as for now, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
