For Short-Haired Girls

I've had my short hair for almost three years now and I'm finally allowing it to grow past my ears (although I am desperately yearning for a haircut right about now). I can't wait for it to be a little bit longer so I can play around with it! Here are some short hair inspiration photos I've found over the last few months...
Messy unkempt hair.
Dianna Lunt shot by Citizen Couture.
Natalia Vodianova's pretty curled hair.
Everyone loves Arizona Muse's hair! I love how super textured and disheveled it is in this photo. Here's a different photo of Arizona's shorter haircut... 
 Swept back picture-perfect hair.
I love Britt Maren's hair! 
More messy hair.
This is the photo made me want to grow my hair out.

Hope you enjoyed the post! x

I understand the need for change with hair styles. I never keep the same thing for long.

However, in your case, your recent (for the last 3 years lol!) hair style is extremely becoming!! It suits your face, your style, and is just about perfect. Really!!

Always a fan of the short garçonne haircut, but it seems to be length that's back, and with a vengeance!!

I think Arizona's fits your style to a T Karla~ A little retro, yet very feminine and funky at the same time...overall super chic! Every time I grow my hair out I'm reminded of how gamine my short hair made me look and feel...ahhhh we always want what we don't have!

Can't wait to see your progression!

Peace. Love. LOL!

It would look so awesome if you grew it out just a bit longer. Not too short, but not past your ears. THAT would be a fine 'do indeed :)

Great selection!
I'm also in the process of growing it out. The last picture shows the approximate length I aim for.
You're lucky that you can pull of such short her - it suits you very well.
Happy Saturday

I understand the desire for change but your short hair makes you distinctive and exquisitely beautiful. Britt Maren's hair is my favorite of the pictures you've posted.

I wore short hair for years. Then I started rocking the turban and let my hair grow.. I guess it was a sign of me being in peace with myself.

Yamile Alejandra said...

I've been wanting to cut my hair short like this for a while now - there's something so stunning about a woman with short hair. Absolutely LOVE!

Anonymous said...

FINALLY.

I think you're beautiful but to be honest, I never liked your short hair. There is something so feminine about having long hair and playing around with it and sometimes letting it fall on your shoulders, sometimes behind your back, sometimes covering some of your face and leaving something for the imagination.

In brief, I love long hair and I think it suited you better when you had it and I am glad you're growing it out now.

Natalia Vodianova's hair is amazing! Makes me want to cut mine ;)

Girls who can pull off short hair are so lucky. I can never pull it off a day in my life. At least I wouldn't have the confidence to do it.

Great post.

Erin said...

Love your hair short, but I think that you could really rock the bangs/bob version in the pic "A Fine Mess" and Dianna Lunt's style

Anonymous said...

Cut your hair again it looked great ultra short. Why be like everyone else? To all - women are feminine, they don't need long hair to be so. Also how do you know you'll look awful if you've never tried cutting it? One more thing, "my boyfriend/husband likes long hair is not a reason to keep it long.

Anonymous said...

I can't wait, Karla!! I am so happy you are trying a new 'do! You look great in short hair, but I am so eager to see another hairstyle you'd pick.. You are a gifted person, artistic and with great taste-- and i know you'd choose something fabulous again!

love,
Cheryl

karla said...

Anonymous 4:12, I don't think I'll ever have long hair though... I still want it cropped, just not a pixie anymore. I actually feel the most feminine with shorter hair and I don't think longer hair is for me because a) I hate blow drying/curling/straightening my hair and b) when I think of long hair, I think of Kim Kardashian

Anonymous 6:03: It's still going to be short, just not ultra short! Don't you worry ;)

Jerri said...

oh my gosh. thanks for posting these. I must must have the top haircut or definitely "A FINE MESS." Thank you for the inspiration and your hair always looks so damn cool.

so many wonderful strong styles. Short hair is all about frankness and simplicity =) for me, I like short hair better becomes it makes me look fresher. very true ^^ and secondly, because I have a very long face - long hair makes it look so sallow.

Lovely pictures <3 I have always had short hair and have been wanting to grow it out too. I yearn for a haircut every now and then but my dream of havin' long hair overides my temptations. :) Goodluck with your hair-growing

i'm growing my hair out from a SHORT pixie, so i'm loving this inspiration! i actually brought in a photo of you from your blog when i cut all my hair off! i've always loved your style and haircut!

You would rock a messy bob. It's such a fun versatile and easy look to have!

So lovely pictures - my hair is long now, but i'm in the process.... getting ready for short hair (maybe i should start with something like in the last picture)

Absolutely Mrs. K said...

Girl we are going through the same hair phase I guess! I have short hair for about 4 years, and I had it! From very short to semi short and back! At the moment I have a egg head, but not long enough so I am going for the longer egg head version! Thank you for this inspiration

I bet you'll look great with longer hair =) X

catalina said...

You should do a "hair history" kind of article. I would love to see how your hairstyle evolved over the years, because I was actually shocked to see a picture of you from 2008 (I think) when you had long hair.
You are gorgeous, by the way. I wish I could rock a short hair like you do; unfortunately, a chin lenght bob is the only thing I can do.

Anonymous said...

you know I started following your blog because of your hair?? I cut mine about three years ago too and you were (and are) such an inspiration to me!
"and I'm finally allowing it to grow past my ears " that is the matter!

I am a short-haired girl myself. And I still am not tired of it. Though those longer styles are tempting. I love the ease of mine.
I have fine textured hair so short is perfect,
Great post.

I would like to see your blog more personable. Share a little more about yourself. The idea of a previous poster sharing your own personal hair history would be interesting to see.

you are blessed with a face which is complemented by any hair length and I am excited to see how you look with it longer, be patient ;)

''when I think of long hair, I think of Kim Kardashian'' hahaha thats funny. Because you guys both have a) same taste in shoes b) have/had black bf c) wear makeup everyday d) rich parents e) wants to have bigger lips f) and you probably love your ass just as much she loves hers. And not to mention, I'm guessing you watch her reality show too.

When I think of long hair, I think of beautiful elegant women such as monica beluci, gisele bunchen, gwyneth paltrow, eva mendez etc....

weirdo.

Christy said...

Are you doing anything to your hair to get those curls? I'll be honest, I think your hair is adorable right now, as is!

MateaTPol said...

I really love short hair, buf for me ist so much work, when i have short hair i must every day make hairstayle :/

Amy said...

Anonymous 11:41 - Are you petty & jealous or is no one allow to have an opinion. When I think of short hair I think of Halle Berry, Michelle Williams, Mia Farrow, Emma Watson, all beautiful women too.

Seems a shame that a fellow short haired girl, is letting it grow! But your absolutely right, that last picture is stunning- dishevelled and ladylike at the same time. After seeing how well you wore your hair elfin short you inspired me to go to the same lengths and I'm loving it!

Karla,

I don't get it.

What's wrong with Kim Kardashian or her hair?

She has beautiful hair and style (the latter is sometimes arguable).

Anyways, I wasn't saying grow ultra long hair. I was just saying go back to your hair days before you cut it this short.

Btw, I am not like some of the sycophantic boot-licking girls here who would just tell you what you want to hear or who would come here and advertise their websites at the end of their comments.

I really have nothing to gain really.

Again, I think you're absolutely beautiful and I have followed you for so many years. But I just dislike your short hair. And this comes from a place of love.

I am excited to see you with longer hair.

That's funny that you have decided to grow your hair out long. I used a photo of your short hair as a reference for my hairstylist just last week. I got a 13" long braid cut off!

Anonymous said...

This is great! I have had short hair for almost six years now and am finally growing it out... this is great inspiration to keep me going!

Midge said...

I feel your pain... I've been growing out a buzzcut, which became a pixie and now a bob. Cutting your hair is so much fun, but a pain to grow out for a change!

I loved your post! Awesome images of short hair! Love Arizona Muse!!!
