There's never a good time for a breakup. Though realistically, late November is the time of year when couples start taking stock of their relationship. Of course, it makes sense that how you feel going into the holidays is very telling. Perhaps you're bubbling with happy butterflies in your stomach thinking about bringing your S.O. home to meet your family for the first time. Or, on the flip side, you decide it's best to pump the breaks or make a clean split before it's all mistletoe, a New Year's Eve countdown, and heart-shaped chocolate on the horizon.
When cuffing season suddenly turns to Chinese food for one — a la Ariana and Pete — the best way to move on with total confidence, in Ari's Thank U, Next style, is to make a salon appointment for a breakup cut. And in this case, the shorter, the chicer.
Ahead, we've compiled a comprehensive list of short hair inspiration ranging in length from blunt bobs to razored pixies. Whether you're looking for a new look to bring into 2019, or a breakup-fueled style to manifest your clean slate, scroll through to find the cut that'll have you amped to chop it all off.
