Popular Bob Hairstyles You Can Use

Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 21, 2009

It seems that the bob hairstyle never goes out of style. It’s been popular since the 1950s and its popularity shows no signs of abating.

Short Bob Hair StylesIt’s likely that the bob is so popular because of its simplicity. Generally, it’s an easy hairstyle to style and manage. It flatters nearly every face shape and age.

But what are the most popular bob styles right now? Let’s look at a few.

Classic

The classic bob is still popular. Of all the popular bob styles right now, this is the only one that features bangs. The bangs can be very short or right at the eyebrow. The hair is usually right at the chin.

This style is popular because it’s easy to style, especially for women with naturally straight hair.

The long bang

This style of bob can be very short (right at the ear) or longer, under the chin. The style can give the appearance that the woman has no bang, but the bangs are there, just very long. They are usually swept to the side. There might be some light layering, or there might not be any layering at all, though the hair is usually straight (as with the classic).

The side sweep

This style of bob is extremely popular right now. This is best suited for women who have naturally straight hair or are willing to blow dry their hair straight. This style features hair that’s mostly all one length. Often the front of the hair is cut longer than the back, but there are no bangs and if any layering, it’s long layers.

This style is characterized by a side part and hair that’s blown or lightly curled just barely under a bit. This isn’t the bob that features hair that flips out (that style is quickly going out of style) but rather gently curls under. And when we say “gentle” we mean it’s quite subtle. Many women can get their hair to do this naturally if they have the right cut.

This style is popular with very young women and older women. An older woman might back comb the hair to get a lot of body from the back and have it curled under a bit more dramatically, while a younger woman might opt for a few more layers to make the look a little messier.

The flip

Though we said look that hairstyles featuring flipped ends are going out of favor, there is one style of bob that features lightly flipped ends. These aren’t the ends that are dramatically flipped and sprayed to stay that way. That look has gone out of favor. This is about a light flipping, often done just with a curl brush and no curling iron.

In this style, the hair is lightly layered, though they are long layers, and the hair is generally fairly straight. It’s parted in the middle, and the ends are, as we said, just lightly flipped. That’s added just to give the hair and face some dimension. This style is best suited for young women.

As you can see, there are a myriad of choices in popular bob styles. Most work with many different hair textures and face shapes. Do a little research to find the right bob style for you.

Layered hairstyles are among the best hairstyles and look good on almost all types of hair lengths. It is considered to be the simplest addition to the normal hairstyle yet it changes the complete look of an individual. These hairstyles increase volume and are just enough make anyone stylish and look beautiful.

Curly Hair Cut Short StylesTo have a look of the layered haircut, one just needs to cut hairs into different layers. The uppermost layer is the chin length or just touching the ears or may be beginning with fringes and locks. Thereafter the length keeps on increasing and the layers are appropriately given.

Great Easy Hairstyles To Wear To Your Prom

Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 12, 2009

One of the things you’ll want for your prom night is a fantastic hairstyle that will get you all the attention you deserve. You don’t have to do anything as drastic as dying your hair to match your gown as long as you choose a style that’s completely different from the style you wear almost every day. If you’re one of those girls who usually pulls her hair up in a sloppy-looking bun or ponytail, for prom you should wear your hair in a long, smooth, flowing style.

Short Choppy Cut Hair StyleIf you always go around with your hair down, here’s your opportunity to try a fancy upswept hairdo that will completely entrance your date. Instructions for four glamorous hairstyles are listed below. Even if you don’t choose to exactly copy one of them, they might give you some ideas for an original style of your own.

Long, Shiny Hair and a Looped Ponytail

It only takes about a half hour to create a glamorous hairdo using this style. Start by pulling all of your hair up into a high ponytail. If your hair tends to wave or curl, use an iron on it before putting it up. If you still have hairs that just don’t want to lay the way you want them to, spray a little gel on your hair and then gently comb your errant locks to smooth them. After you’ve achieved the smoothness you desire, divide your ponytail in three pieces like you would for a braid. Take each section individually and roll it under, securing the ends with bobby pins or clips going in different directions. You can add any creative touches that you like, because nothing says this hairstyle has to look any certain way. Add flowers, hair clips, or even a tiara to add a little extra elegance.

Go Sleek and Simple with a French Twist

Your mom will totally approve of this classic hairstyle, because it was just as popular in her day as it is now. You can leave the twist sleek and simple, or you can add some curls to give the style a unique flare. Unless you have super smooth hair to start with, you’ll want to use gel to get all of your hair to lie down. If you have a widow’s peak you’d rather hide, part your hair on one side. If not, you can pull it all straight back.

Starting at the nape of your neck, start twisting your hair until it’s all tightly twisted. Pull the twist up, and secure it with clips. Tame stray hairs by spritzing on a little hairspray. When you’re finished, tuck the ends under the twist or else curl them with a curling iron. Adding a ribbon in front of the twist can give you an extra special look.

Short Hair and Soft Curls

If your hair is short and very straight, you can spice it up by adding some soft curls. Turn on your hot rollers. Use the waiting time to do your make-up. This will save you from some stress later in the day when things get hectic. Roll your hair on the heated rollers and allow them to cool. Take the rollers out and brush out the curls. If you want a flatter look on top, control the hair with long bobby pins or clips. You don’t want your hair to end up looking too perfect. Tease the ends and the back, and allow it to look somewhat sexy and disheveled. When you’ve finished teasing, remove the clips from the front and add flowers or randomly-placed rhinestone clips.

Long, Curly Hair and Tousled Curls
If you’re like most people with naturally curly hair, you’ve probably hated it all your life, but now’s your time to shine. A long, curly style is exactly what you want to look sexy and regal on prom night. Start by washing your hair and applying a conditioner that’s made to enhance your natural curliness. If you have time, allow your hair to air dry while scrunching it a little to encourage it to curl. If you have to use a blow dryer, make sure you use a diffuser with it.

After your hair has completely dried, use a curling iron to curl small strands. This will give them a more styled look. Then take your fingers and break the ringlets into loose curls which will create the tousled effect. Tie all of your hair back with a ribbon that matches your dress. You can leave a few strands loose for a different type of look. If you don’t feel your hairstyle is full enough, add a curly hairpiece underneath the tied curls. Finish the style with a flower or rhinestone clip that will add an extra touch of glamor.

Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 8, 2009

Most features on an anime character are simplistic. The boring features are usually minimalized or even ditched while the more interesting features are exaggerated. The great part about being a cartoonist is that you get to decide how complex you want this to be. hair is one of the places where you can let your creativity and style flourish.

Trendy New Short Hair StylesShort hair is slightly more challenging to draw than normal hair because hair does crazy things when its shortened. With longer hair, the sheer weight of the hair pulls the hair down in a relatively consistent direction. But short hair can curl, bend, and go just about everywhere.

The top part of the head can be drawn as an extremely curving line, or can be drawn with simplistic alfalfa sprouts, or can be drawn using all sorts of triangles and curves.

You can have strands overlap or you can have each strand appear to neatly stay in their own corners. Along with this you can also try the Short Choppy Hairstyles.

This especially makes drawing individual strands branching off from the sides of the heads a lot easier. It can seem like a nightmare trying to figure out how thin, yet normally visible strands of hair branch out.

Cute Short Hair StylesStraight hair will shine more that curly or wavy hair because of light reflection. For maximum shine apply straightening balm before blow drying for super sleek looks.

When you are blow drying use a nozzle attachment to direct the airflow down the hair from root to tip. This helps to flatten the cuticle scales and add shine.

If you have course or frizzy hair, use a big, round thermo brush that has a metal barrel that heats up during the drying process. This heat is then used to style your hair, just like straighteners would.

There are wide range of creams, serums and sprays available to add instant shine. Gloss is great for this. Smooth or scrunch it into the hair to tame flyaway ends and give a fantastic sheen to your hair.

Rejuvenate curls by twisting them around your finger. Rub a small amount of curl definer onto your fingers and mould the curl bywinding the hair around your finger. This eliminates frizz, reshapes the curl and adds shine.

Always rinse hair your with clean running water to banish shampoo and conditioner from the hair as remaining deposits will make the hair dull.

When rinsing use cold water in the final rinse as this will close down the cuticle and encourage shine.

Intensive conditioning treatments replace lost moisture and lock it in by adding a fine protective layer around the hair.

Feeling in the party mood then wear your hair in relaxed, wavy curls which will be one of this season’s hot new hairstyle looks. You can rag roll or tong your hair, or use large rollers for lovely loose waves to be the belle of the ball.

How to Find The Perfect Short Hair Style

Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 4, 2009

he last thing you want to do after you get a haircut is to hide from people. Unless you are a fan of outrageous cuts or styles that would send other people into hiding, you would want to get that perfect hairstyle that will give you confidence to take on the world.

Short Bob Hair StylesNow, before you go to a salon, or grab a pair of hair scissors and give yourself a haircut, here is a checklist of things to consider to help you find that perfect hairstyle.

• Shape of the face

People with oval shaped faces look great on short-layered haircuts that emphasize the chin or the check bones. Those with square shaped faces should go for a lighter look such as spiky hair or long flowing layers. Round shaped faces must opt to have styles that have soft gradual layers to make the face look less round.

• Skin tone

The color of the skin is an important consideration if you are planning to get a new color for your hair. Those who have a yellowish complexion, it would be wise to stay away from tones of deep gold while those with pinkish skin should avoid strawberry colors. Dark colors are not ideal for people who have very light complexion because these can make them look even paler.

• Hair type

The texture and pattern of your hair also play a role in looking for that perfect hairstyle. You have the option to play the genetic nature of your hair, go for a nice curly hairstyle if you have natural curly locks. Or you can also go for a radical change like transform your hair from black to blonde or straight to curly.

• Your lifestyle

Your crowning glory should not only be a reflection of your personality but should also be practical for the kind of lifestyle that you live. A high maintenance gorgeous do is great if you are in the fashion world or if you are a TV personality but if you are a busy mom who is always on the go, it would make sense for you to get a hairstyle that you can wash and wear.

• Fashion trend

It is always a good idea to consult with fashion magazines and experts to see what is hot in terms of hairstyles. This is not to say that it is all right to follow whatever hair trend is going on because you have to remember that not all fashion trends will fit you well. Just consider some of those that are in fashion to give you an idea on what to get for yourself.

• Age and personal style

Your hair should be something that you can comfortably wear so it is smart to consider both your age and personal style when choosing a hairstyle. Sometimes, it would tempt you to grab those hair scissors and give yourself a wild haircut that young people don these days. But you have to ask yourself if this is suitable for your age as well as your personal style or not.

Great Short Hair Styles

Posted by Short Hair Styles on June 29, 2009

MORE THAN ANY other factors, the texture, bend and amount of your hair must govern your choice of a hairdo. I emphasize this point because in my experience the failure to understand it is a leading cause of women’s dissatisfaction with their hair, and their hairdressers. Great hair styles depend on a proper analysis of your hair.

Short Hair Styles For WomenThe woman who is trying to work against nature must spend endless hours fussing with her hair and gets no better results than the one who has chosen an easily cared-for hairdo. A successful hairdo is one where the hair will spring easily back into place. Any other kind means you have to force the hair to do something that is not natural to it. If you choose one of the latter, a great deal more hair care will be required, and satisfactory results are questionable.

First you must examine your hair with a cold and impersonal eye. Study it as it actually is, not as you would like it to be or as it used to be. How fine or coarse is your hair? How thick or thin? Finally, and one of the most important questions, how much bend (natural wave or curl) does it have?

To answer these questions, first wash your hair. While it is wet, begin manipulating it with your fingers. Examine the top, back and sides by sections. By doing so you will be able to determine the amount of bend in your hair. This bend will help you decide on the style. When you locate a natural bend, if there is any, you can utilize it for a style that will be practicable for you.

It is possible that some sections will have more bend, some less, some none. The bend which can be utilized best is that found at the temples, the sideburns, and the top of the hair. You will realize, of course, that the amount of bend will vary with the length of the strand of hair. If your hair is long and shows no bend, this is what to do: isolate several sections of your hair, each section containing between one dozen or two dozen hairs.

Cut these sections shorter and shorter till you get them down to one inch in length. At each cutting manipulate them with your fingers and comb, to test them for bend. When you find the length at which one or all the sections respond, you should use that length as a measuring stick for the rest of the hair.

As I have said, it often happens that one section will have bend, the other none, so common sense will tell you to use the bend for movement or variation of line, and leave the rest as straight as possible.

When you discover one section with bend you must search carefully along its outer edges, to see how far it goes.

While on this subject, I must make it clear that finding bend in the hair applies to curly as well as straight hair, because even curly hair has some straighter sections which can be utilized for their straightness. Great hair styles will take account of these variations.

Once you have decided on the amount of bend your hair possesses, then you must think in terms of hairdos and whether you want to utilize all of the bend or just some of it.

TEXTURE
Your next step is to begin thinking about the texture (fine, medium or coarse).

Fine hair has a tendency to frizz when curled too tightly. It looks its best when allowed to fall softly and naturally, with a minimum of curling.

Coarse hair will hold a curl or wave if you don’t curl it too tightly or wave it too much.

Medium hair is the most pliable and can assume many shapes.

AMOUNT
Thin hair must be made to look thicker. One of the best ways is to wash it frequently and keep it free from oil. When hair is freshly washed it looks twice as thick.

Modern Short Curly Hairstyles

Posted by Short Hair Styles on June 28, 2009

A quick phone call and suddenly you’re getting ready for a hot date or night out on the town? Don’t let your short hairstyle get you down or make you feel like you’ve got the world’s most boring cut. Go with some curls and get funky! You’ll be amazed at how much they can transform your hair, look, and attitude.

Online Short Hair Styles

Gone are the tight curls of yesteryear that have you looking like a poodle. With the gentler perms of today, women can enjoy fantastic shiny curly hair style without the frizz. There’s nothing more elegant and glamorous than a short curly hairstyle. Although modern looking, short curly hairstyles have been popular for a long time.

Remember Marilyn Monroe? A celebrity of the 50’s, she was as well known for her short, curly, blonde locks as she was her movies. Many women since have tried to emulate Marilyn’s short curly hairstyle. Now it can be your turn to look just as gorgeous. It’s easier than you think.

If you’re already blessed with naturally curly hair then forget the curling iron and go natural. Simply shampoo and condition your hair and then individually wrap each curl with a gelled finger for definition. You may decide to get the bottom part of hair on your head shaved.

For the rest of us, you’ll need to use a good curling iron with thermal protection to keep from burning your hair. Comb your hair so there are not any knots – make it as smoot as possible for best results. Get as close to your head as possible and curl only small amounts of hair at a time. It should take about 5-10 seconds to curl each section. Let the curling iron leave the curl and permit the curling iron to cool down without touching. This will let the curl set. Go to the next section of hair. Make sure the ends of locks are in the curling iron before closing the iron. When the curls are cooled down, loosen with fingers and spray lightly with your favorite hairspray.

Whether your curly locks are natural or accomplished through modern means, have fun and experiment. There are a few good websites or software programs that will let you upload a digital picture of yourself and then try on many short curly “virtual hairstyles” til you find the perfect one. Give them a try, that’s exactly what the top stylists in the major cities do.

Have fun and most of all, enjoy that hot date or night out on the town!
