Nowadays, short hair for females is not only considered practical, but also a very stylish option that most women tend to go for when they want to switch up their look. There's an extensive list of reasons why short hair is great and most women agree that getting rid of it after a lifetime of tangling and damaged, split-ended long hair could be one of the best decisions ever.

Moscow-based hairdresser Kristina Katsabina helps women to feel beautiful again by making incredible transformations by just cutting off their hair. The talented hairstylist provides her clients with short haircuts, proving that female beauty is not measured by the length of the hair, nor is it measured by the stereotypes our modern-day society has set.

Giving her clients a fresh new look is one of the main reasons why Kristina does these before-and-after comparisons showing how a haircut can change a whole person within a matter of hours.

In any case, if you are wondering whether or not to go for the big cut, we have gathered a list for you of Kristina’s best work to help you decide if you are up for a transformation! Feel free to take a look at these 70 women who made dramatic changes to their hair by cutting it all off.

Seeing these amazing transformations, Bored Panda reached out to Kristina, as we were quite curious to find out how the talented hairstylist was able to start this whole trend of short haircuts as well as the inspiration behind it.

"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."

New cut makes her hair look fuller and more luscious

"I think if I would have my own children, I would probably be on maternity leave like most women. However, at the moment, all of the spare time I have belongs to me, and I’m putting it into self-realization by doing significant things that are important to me personally. I like to keep a realistic overview of myself and the things around me. Knowing what’s important to me and what I love and want has helped me to take steps in the right direction to become a hairdresser, and frankly enough, I was considering this profession for a while before that. The profession had all the requirements for me to like it:

1.Creativity, style, and beauty.

2.Working with and for people.

3.Good pay.

4.Freedom (I could probably still work as a hairstylist even while being on the moon.).

5.I’m always learning something new.

6.The results of my work are immediate.

7.The opportunity to manage the process from beginning to the end.

8. A job where both my hands and head are involved."

"When I put a checkmark on every one of those points, my decision was made instantly. The results can be seen in the before-and-after transformations I’ve done on my clients.

Now, talking about short haircuts—it was love at first sight. First, I fell in love with my own transformation, one could say I went to the extreme, going from long locks to the short hair I have now. The transformation results weren’t only visible in my appearance—no, the transformation also touched me from the inside too, I felt way happier than before.

When I started working as a hairstylist, I had more and more clients coming in to get a short haircut. Making these haircuts happen with my own hands, I saw the real transformations unfold right before my eyes. In the end, I fell in love with the process and it made me realize that I could see people in a different way. It is all about giving them suitable haircuts based on their preferences, personality, and the person’s overall charisma."

We asked the hairstylist, what was her favorite transformation, and here's what she had to say:

"I’m a highly specialized specialist, so people come to me exclusively for short haircuts. There are a lot of transformations I’ve done, but I couldn’t say which one is my favorite since every haircut is unique and personally tailored for the person I’m giving it to. I like the transformation that happens with my clients during the cut itself. You can see how the face becomes more lifted, women become way younger right away, and the haircuts themselves make them look more stylish, and modern by giving them a sharper look"

There are a lot of things a hairstylist should know, but Katsabina believes that some things should come from the person itself.

"I think the main thing the hairdresser has to possess is the ability to wholeheartedly love working with people and feel their needs. Of course, you also have to consider things such as aesthetics and one’s personal taste, but in the end, your mission is to make a person a better, more beautiful version of themselves. And that's what I do with my haircuts, I like to make women feel happier, more beautiful, free, and brave."

I liked the long hair but they should've layered it and volumed it up.
