There are so many things to love about local actress Ya Hui: her breakout role as wonton mee seller Hong Jinzhi in “118”, her tenacity, and her confidence in her own skin. The actress who has been killing it on Tik Tok gave us even more reason to adore her when she posted a series of Instagram stories, clapping back at haters who criticised South Korean Olympic archery champ An San’s short hair.
Just like An San, Ya Hui who has to keep her tresses short because of her acting roles has received “too many comments on having short hair.” “Anything wrong with short hair? Why are we being criticised for that?” Ya Hui questioned in her Instagram story. “Life is already very tough. Can we just be kinder to one another? What’s the point of making nasty comments over whatever news you see on social media? Does that make you happier?” wrote Ya Hui in another IG Story. Preach.
Besides An San and Ya Hui, many female celebs have gone against traditional beauty standards and have embraced short haircuts that make them feel more confident and comfortable in their own skin. They’ve proved to us that rocking a short ‘do is not only easier to maintain but also incredibly fierce. Ahead, here are 12 stars who will convince you to make a date with a pair of shears.
