There are many celebrity role models who slay in short hair like Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, and Amber Rose. Still, it's impossible to deny that the standards of beauty still favor longer locks. As beauty blogger Alissa Ashley, who regularly rocks a blonde buzz cut, just demonstrated, it's going to take awhile for society to view shorter hair as equally beautiful to waterfall hair.
She also served another Rihanna look when she recreated one of the singer's "Anti" looks.
Plus, she wore long brown hair when she dressed as a Bratz doll. With all of these style changes she's proven hair is just that: just hair.
Whether or not she decides to stay short or go for hair reaching down to the floor, Ashley has a right to switch it up. What's most important is that it's inspiring that Ashley is slowly ending the stigma against shorter hair with her iconic look and encouraging others to try daring looks in the process. Go Ashley!
