Stylist Melinda Marki assisted her client on a risky styling adventure to let go of her long locks and embrace a new breezy bob, and even shorter bangs. Risky may not be the right word to use anymore, perhaps emotionally risky (in which case we have plenty of tissues!), but after the initial cutting of the ponytail it was smooth sailing. If you’re considering making the plunge, but you’re afraid you’ll miss the wide range of updos and styles that come with long hair, consider this: less is more. The time you gain without having to style your hair each morning will make you feel productive, and let’s not forget to mention the confidence that comes with short hair because it feels incredible. See below photos that document the transformation!
