Forget back to school shop, this is a back to school chop!

The school year is finally starting up again and summer is sadly coming to an end. Although we’re bummed about no more vacation days and relaxing trips to the beach, we are excited for a new start! The first month of school promises new changes, resolutions, and a total wardrobe and style refresh. What could be better? If you grew your hair out during the summer for a long-haired beach babe style, consider going for a back to school chop! A haircut will give your strands a healthy re-do for the new school year and will re-inspire you when it comes to styling your look. Keep reading to hear why we think the back to school chop is an absolute must.

The Back to School Chop

Going shorter is the perfect way to start the school year!

1. New Year, New ‘Do

If you’re anything like us, then you’re absolutely itching for a style change by the time the school year comes around. We know that taking the leap and going for a bold chop can be scary, but we promise there are so many ways to style it and your hair will thank you for the cut! The first few months of school are still hot and waking up early can be a challenge. A shorter cut will keep you cool during class and it’s so easy to style early in the A.M.

2. Give Your Strands a Healthy Start

The back to school chop isn’t just a fashion statement. It’s also a way to say goodbye to sun and heat style damaged strands. Summer is filled with long days of exposure to strong UV rays and nighttime hair styling for dinner, parties, and evening activities. The ends of your hair might be dull, dry, and begging for a refresh! Going for the chop will allow you to restart and get rid of weak and damaged ends. On top of the cut, switch to a repair focused shampoo and conditioner duo, like TIGI Copyright Custom Care Repair Shampoo and Conditioner to get your hair back on track.

3. There are So Many Ways to Style a Short Cut

We know that with short hair can come with the idea that it’s difficult to style further than straightening and a loose wave, but that’s simply not true! If you know a thing or two about braiding, we highly recommend trying a Dutch braid on your shorter strands. Give this style a beachy, textured vibe with a few sprays of Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Salt Spritz Texture Spray. Pancake your braid and you’re all set!
