Many of us women have been taught to define our worth in terms of our femininity, which is then used to gauge our attractiveness, which then affects how much we value ourselves as people. Unsettlingly important in this is hair.

Hair often defines the rigid gender norms; however, as we head into a new decade, many women feel like leaving all of this behind. If you believe that having long hair only adds to the pressure of needing to be attractive enough to meet social expectations, cut it short. Cut off your long hair if you're sick of maintaining it to appease others. Being a version of oneself that society accepts is not our responsibility, and that's exactly why hairstylist Kristina Katsabina takes it upon herself to give her clients short hairstyles based on their preferences and style.

In an earlier interview with Bored Panda, Kristina gave us some insight into the short hair trend as a whole and provided some about her client preferences.

"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."

I love that for once they are using the same clothes and makeup and not the typical "old ugly pic" vrs "beautiful pic with new clothes and makeup"

Many women are exploring short haircut styles and finding inspiration for the next year of 2022. Cutting your hair is never an easy decision since for many people, it has sentimental importance or even touches on sensitive subjects like religious views. However, perhaps fashion-forward hairstyles like the pixie cut, short bob, or even Chanel cut can motivate someone to make changes in their lives. After all, great transformations always begin with the hair!

With that being said, additionally, Kristina saw a rise in the demand for "Bixie" haircuts. A short hairstyle known as a "bixie" is frequently described as a cross between a mullet, a pixie, and a bob. This specific haircut is a new style that combines a sophisticated, effortless look with the best lived-in looks and classic sophistication. It looks well on any lady, regardless of age.

I feel like the short haircut makes her face look even shorter. It instantly changed her face shape to much more round.

Wow! I wonder if her hair was naturally curly before and she decided to straighten it.

This so called 'stylist' needs to find another profession.
