You might have been thinking about chopping your hair off for a while now, but actually doing it is another matter entirely. So how about a happy medium? Instead of going super short, try a gorgeous medium-length cut that still has texture and body, and allows you to continue experimenting with braids and twists. Once you've gone for the chop, your hair will look healthier and feel so much lighter. You can go for a full-on transformation by adding a gorgeous blonde shade, too. Trust us, a shoulder-skimming style is exactly what you need.
