If you are one of those who have always had long hair, and want to try a different style, then you must know an important rule.

And, if you want to take a risk and wear a short style, but you don’t know how it will look on you, you can already try if it will favor you with this guide.

The rule you must follow to know if short hair will suit you

It is known as the rule of 5.7 centimeters, or 2.25 inches., and was created by famous hairstylist John Frieda.

It consists of marking the maximum length that should be between your chin and ear to ensure that short hair will fit you or not.

How to apply the 5.7 centimeter rule

You should place a pencil under your chin, always keeping it at an angle parallel to the ground.

And then place a ruler vertically, starting from the earlobe, and notice where the pencil and the ruler intersect and measure the distance of both.

See if the measurement exceeds 5.7 centimeters, in width and length, and if so, short hair will not favor you.

If, on the contrary, it does not exceed the amount mentioned above then dare to wear any short style that you are going to look great.

You can try any style from bob to pixie and it will definitely flatter your features and make you rejuvenate.

The point to take a cut to the height of the chin or higher is to sharpen the distinctive features of the face such as the jawline, the cheekbones or the eye area.

So try to have your stylist or whoever cuts your hair frame the face with a short hair style that draws attention to this area and thus you will achieve a perfect and flattering style.
