If you are looking for a change after the interesting year that was 2021, why not use this time wisely to plan your next short haircut? Over the past decade or so, short hairstyles have stunned the world of media, and these days more and more women prove that gone are the days when women were expected to keep long, luscious hair just to avoid stereotypes.

In the last few years, women, regardless of their age, have been ditching their long hairstyles in exchange for a fresh short haircut. And gorgeous female celebrities such as Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, and even Tyra Banks have only added to the trend with their short new 'dos, as they tend to make powerful statements, showing that you don’t need long hair to feel feminine and beautiful.

Russian hairstylist Kristina Katsabina helps her clients feel empowered and confident as she proves that one can still look beautiful regardless of their hair length.

Kristina’s work has been previously featured on Bored Panda, and if you’d like to see more of it, you can click here, and here.

In an older interview with Bored Panda, Kristina told us a little bit about the whole trend behind the short haircuts and gave us insights on her clients.

"A lot of women in their 30s are either working in a field they do not like or they have lost all of their inspiration to keep moving forward. It happened to me too; at some point, I lost all of my motivation to keep moving forward and deepen my knowledge when it came to my profession at the time. Before becoming a full-time hairstylist, I was teaching Spanish and also worked as a translator and choreographer."

Kristina also had an influx of clients who wanted a "Bixie" haircut. "Bixie" is a short haircut that is often described as a hybrid between the bob, mullet, and a pixie. This exact haircut is a new trend that brings together a classy elegant look and pairs it with an effortless style, combining the best lived-in looks with timeless sophistication, and looks good on any woman regardless of her age.

For the new year of 2022, a lot of women are looking into short haircut trends and inspiration for the following year. Chopping off your hair is never easy as for many it holds sentimental value or even touches upon topics such as religious beliefs. However, maybe haircut trends such as the pixie cut, short bob, or even Chanel cut can inspire one to make changes in life. After all, all big changes start with one's hair!

This reminds me of a swimsuit ad I saw. In each of the before and after shots of the various models in various swimsuits, the model wearing the manufacturer's swimsuit was smiling, and not smiling in the other.

Crystal blue eyes look great with both, but I still love more length.

It's good to cut away the overprocessing damage. The hair looks much healthier now.

I find this haircut quite terrible. The first pic shows a beautiful, fresh, young woman with gorgeous eyes. The new haircut on the other pictures adds at least 10 years...
