What Exactly is Short Hair?

Hi guys!
So my friends and I were talking the other day and the topic turned to "short hair". We started venting about how online shoulder length hair is considered to be "short", while most people consider it to be "medium" length and I thought that I'd turn it into a blog post!

Well first off, I think that everyone can agree with what long hair is! But when we start getting into short and medium, it gets a little confusing, especially online! I literally just searched "short hair" on google images and 99% of those images were of people who have hair that touches or are around their shoulders, which I would consider medium. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but it is really confusing especially when you think of all the things that can go wrong with these ambiguous names! Like what if you go into a hair salon and say, "I want to go short" and you're thinking pixi cut and the stylist is thinking shoulder length bob. I just think that it's absolutely ridiculous and crazy how we beauty gurus have names for like the different parts of the eye (crease, browbone, lid, lashline, waterline...) but we still can't get hair lengths right. Like come on guys! Get it together! Haha, just kidding! But really, these names bother me...

Let me know your thoughts on this topic in the comments below! Am I on to something, or am I just crazy? Also, follow me on bloglovin for more posts!


  1. I think that's why we have other names for it like pixie cut, shoulder-length and so on.

  2. yeah that's true, but like if you're generalizing it like "I want to cut my hair short" it's still really ambiguous!
