The Phrase "Short Hair, Don't Care" Has to Go
One celebrity trend I'm tired of? When stars cut their hair and caption the pic, "Short hair, don't care." It's become the new #blessed in terms of overuse. So when Jessica Simpson chopped her hair on Saturday she of course went with that cliche description for her Instagram post. But Simpson is merely the latest celeb to use the line; at least three others came before her and I'm sure many will come after. Off the top of my head I can tell you than in addition to Simpson, Kristin Cavallari, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Taylor Swift have also used the line in the last six month. I can also tell you that I am so over it.
I get that the "lob" (long bob) is totally in right now. I mean, even Lauren Conrad chopped her locks. But can't these stars embrace the short hair trend without all using the same Instagram caption? I get that it's a big deal to cut your hair, especially if you've had long hair forever. I also get that "short hair, don't care" is a cute rhyme to signal the change in your 'do. I admit, when I dyed my hair blue I copied Kylie Jenner and tagged my post "blue hair, don't care." But I've gotten wiser since then and I won't make that cliche mistake again. It's time for all of us, celebrities included, to get more creative.
Here are eight other haircut caption suggestions so we can retire this "short hair, don't care" phrase without losing any of the attitude.
"SHORT HAIR AND I CARE A LOT BECAUSE I'M POSTING IT TO INSTAGRAM FOR LIKES AND COMMENTS"
Honesty is the best policy, right?
"MY HAIR GREW BACKWARDS LAST NIGHT #OMG!"
A much more interesting way to view a haircut.
"DIP-DYED MY HAIR INVISIBLE ON THE ENDS!"
"OOPS, LOOKS LIKE MY HAIR SHRUNK IN THE WASH!"
Still cutesy without being cliche.
"VERTICALLY-CHALLENGED LOCKS, REFUSAL TO GIVE A HOOT"
It's the same sentence, but you went through the trouble of using a thesaurus. Also anytime you get to use the phrase "give a hoot," you should.
"CHOPPED MY HAIR OFF BECAUSE #YOLO"
This is a classic but rarely used for haircuts anymore, so give it a whirl.
"DONATED MY HAIR!"
I would care 6,789 percent more about a celebrity haircut if they donated it to Locks of Love or some similar charity. Not only would they be doing good, but by announcing their donation they might encourage others to do so too.
"HAIRCUT, SO WHAT?"
If you really want a caption that rhymes, try this one. I invented it, so it's (probably) never been used before. You're welcome.
Good luck with your future haircut creative thinking, because this old phrase has got to go once and for all.
