I couldn´t agree more! I love the idea of really cropped hair and e.g. liked Emma Watson and Halle Berry way more with the pixie than with a long mane. But on the other hand I find it scary to look like that stereotypical post-menopausal German on a day out - wiry short hair, rain coat, mini backbag, sandals and no trace of make-up. Or to look like those scary women who find it fancy to wear their crop with purple or deep red streaks...village amazonians.
So the trick is to get your hair cut young enough...and wear it plain enough to make the look work.
Mine is nearly as short as I want it now...happy with it...and it won´t take me long after it will be all short in summer to decide it's time to let it grow again. Isn´t that the good thing about hair? It always grows back again so, be more brave ladies!
