Ok so I want to cut my hair short (not right now but sometime before uni) and I'm wondering where I can get it cut like that?

Does anyone have any tips on how I can avoid places that will give me the Karen haircut?

Do women salons usually do short hair cuts?
Any great hair cut recommendations? I'm adventurous so I'm open to almost anything.

Atm, I'm not sure how short I want it or if I really want it. I'm trying to figure stuff out. I'm just thinking ahead and looking for information because I love to make informed choices.

Any hairdresser will be able to cut it short for you. Just show them a photograph of what you're after and they'll replicate it.

If you are looking for a more traditionally masculine haircut it is typically cheaper to go to a barber for upkeep after the big chop.

Like post two said, find a picture on Google and show them what you want, and also make sure to clarify what you dont.
You could ask the hairdresser to cut it to a bob first since you're unsure. You'll be able to feel and see yourself without such long hair, and if you really end up hating it its not so hard to grow out.

Really? I just kinda assumed that salons typically only do long hair cuts. I'm not gonna lie, this is new info for me.

I shall look for some good pictures.

I had a bob before (before quarantine, my hair grew out a lot since then), so I'm gonna go for something shorter.

Worse case possible, i might start wearing wigs lol

Personally I think people look better if their sides and back are 1 grade shorter than the top.

I think a pixie cut really suits some women, it migjht be best if you can to visit the salon/hairdresser ahead of time and ask them what they think would look nice on you then look up those kind of hairstyles.
