“Short hair, don’t care” is a motto many curlies live by proudly. Not everyone is opting for longer hair.  Many enjoy the carefree look or quickness of the TWA or pixie cut.  Even if one is merely growing their hair out, the desire to find styles for their short cut during that time period does not have to be a hard thing to do. For the shortest of the shortest or for the curlies rocking shaved sides or undercuts, you may need a little guidance. No worries because if you cannot put your hair in a ponytail then we’ve got you covered!
