Spring and summer are often touted as the perfect time for a chop, but here in the South, it's easy to disagree. Although we fully support a fabulous short cut, if you can't pull it into a ponytail, it's a no-go during a Southern summer. There's nothing worse than being outside in the blistering heat and feeling your hair stick to the sweat on the back of your neck. With these short and medium-length hairstyles, you don't have to worry about that awful sensation. Just long enough to pull into a ponytail, these haircuts can go from the gym to the dinner party. Whether you opt for some trendy fringe or go with a simple blunt cut, these lengths are just right.
