You know for the longest time ever, women chopping their hair shorter than the ‘societally acceptable length’ has often been a bit of a taboo in our country. 

The reason behind that? For centuries, society has equated our locks with your femininity, fertility and beauty. 


However, as a person with short hair, I can assure you that the length of your hair is not directly or indirectly proportional to your womanhood. The feeling behind #ShortHairDontCare is real. 

Don’t believe me? Take a look at these badass women with their chic yet ‘unorthodox’ haircut that prove the length of your hair shouldn’t be determined by the societal beauty standards:
