Long hair maintenance can be a time-consuming affair, a love-hate relationship, and many women love the practicality and new-found sense of freedom that short hair can offer. A 'Big Chop' can be about satisfying a curiosity - one way, or the other; It can also be about experimenting, pushing the boundaries.
