About This Quiz

Even in ancient and medieval times, hairstyles were used as a means of expressing style and personality. Generally, the more intricate and striking your hair, the more rich and important you were. (Looking at you, Dolly Parton!) As times have changed, hairstyles have grown into a fashion symbol that's almost exclusively used to reflect personality and style. When's the last time you looked at your bank account and thought, "Well, I guess I need a new hairstyle to reflect my financial status..."?

If you've never gone home after a breakup and laid in bed scrolling through "haircuts for short hair" while "Dirty Dancing" plays in the background... well, you're lying to yourself. From the bold pixie cuts of Mia Farrow, circa-2013-Emma-Watson, and Jennifer Lawrence, to Sinead O'Connor and every one of the Kardashian-Jenners' wigs, we're surrounded by haircut-inspo everywhere we turn. Regardless of whether you're a hair salon regular, or it's been years since you got anything but a trim, it's probably high-time you rethought your haircut. Right? You deserve a 'do that suits you perfectly. But what haircut could that possibly be? Should you shave it off and start from scratch? Cut bangs you'll instantly regret?
