We sharing with you a simple trick that will help you determine whether you should make a short cut, so you do not regret their choice.

This method was invented by renowned British stylist and founder of the eponymous brand of hair John Frieda (John Frieda) and is known as the "rule of 5.5 cm." All you need - this ruler and pencil.

To understand, suitable short haircut or not, you must do the following:

  • Place the pencil horizontally under the chin, and a line - perpendicular to the pencil. Should turn angle of 90 degrees.
  • Measure the distance from the ear lobe to the point of intersection of a pencil and a ruler. If this distance is less than 5.5 cm, can safely go to the hairdresser. If the distance is greater, it is better to refuse from a short hairstyle.

Michelle is surprisingly short haircut, and Liv looks amazing with long curls. According to John Frieda, "the whole thing in the corners."

Stylists say that this method is reliable and accurate. So if you just can not decide on a short hairstyle, boldly reach for a line with a pencil. Or spit at all, and do just as you want.
