I'm not saying all my short hair styles looked awesome on me either. Here is the first picture that was taken of me after my first ever mega chop. I took some cute stylish picture to my mom's stylist. She worked out of a garage converted into a salon. I don't judge, my current stylist cuts my hair in her backyard, whatever. Anyways, it was evident that she had never cut a cute pixie cut and it is also evident that I didn't know how to style one either.
I've made plenty of hair mistakes like baby bangs (top), bleach (bottom) and a buzz cut (fortunately not shown) but I feel like I've happy with my current look. So don't be scared because life with short hair can rock just as hard as life with fishtail braids.
(I feel like the hair bleaching summer of my life and how I ended up with a buzz cut could be interesting stories I may share with you later. Wait and see.)
