Who says that big girls can’t have short hair? Not HTHG. This is such a huge and disappointing fallacy. To prove it, check out Fat girls+short hair=yes a great blog by the fantastic big girl with short hair, Erin D.
Erin is a gorgeous and vivacious woman who looks great with short hair and wants to spread the hair love. I commend her for creating a place for big girls with awesome short hair cuts to share photos and style ideas.
Erin was one of my original Vain clients, who got hooked on my haircuts when I helped her find her natural curl. She went very short a while ago and came to me to shape her up to start growing out a couple months ago. Here is her post from that last cut. Check it out if you want to follow her grow-out process.
Today, she came in and brought her friend Abby, and I trimmed em up. Erin’s hair was needing some layering and texturizing to bring out her curl, and Abby was ready for a new look. She is a DIY haircutter which I just love, but every once in a while a DIY hair cut needs a professional shaping;)
Can I just say…..I think these women look marvelous. Have you ever let your body shape or image keep you from the perfect haircut? I can’t tell you how many times I hear ‘I’ll go short when I lose 10 pounds’
I have an idea. Go out on a limb and cut your hair short if you are a big girl. Then send Erin a photo for fat girls+short hair=yes and share your new look and sense of freedom with the world.
