Short Hairstyles For Special Occasions

Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 24, 2009

A change in hair cut and hairstyle makes a big difference to your personality. Hair that has been long for some time is old and hence prone to breakage. Hair fall problems could be owing to stress, iron deficiency or hormonal changes. Caring for hair goes a long way to ensure that you are always blessed with a shiny mop of hair irrespective of the hair cut.

Celebrity Short Hair StylesSpecial occasions are not restricted to choosing the perfect dress and investing in the latest branded jewelry. Style has to be explored and cultivated. A new haircut takes time to settle and there is no need to fret if you feel dissatisfied with the cut. Use a conditioner that is most suited to you. For trying a hairstyle, washing the hair is imperative. Do not use hair products like serums or lotions for the first time just before an event.

If you have always had the plain-Jane image with a pony or loose hair, then work on a volume and crunch hair at the ends. Alternatively use spiral curls and learn a few do-it-yourself hair curling tips. Buy the best curler or straightener that also locks-in moisture so that the damage to hair is minimal. Firstly understand your face type and then go for a hairstyle. Glossies have several images that sport bob, black, curly or poker straight hair. Go with the one that is identifiable with your face type. Medium length hair cut is the best for all occasions. It blends with all hairstyles and allows you to also try out short hair styles. Break your prior image with a shag hair style or a side swept bang. Go for violet hair color or streaks in mahogany. Streaking is more preferred as it gives a subtle hint of coloring compared to an overall colored hairstyle.

Red hair color or blonde again is a personal choice. The image should also compliment the dress and fabric. Neck pieces and earrings are also employed to give a different illusion and hence try the hair style first and then the accessories. Classy and neat hairstyles look great in formal tones. Messy updo hairstyle is a personal statement. A shag haircut with tapered ends has a class of its own and is suited for semi formal corporate meetings.

Prom hairstyles are gorgeous and eclectic. Include the lady charm with long earrings and hairstyles that speak of elegance. Center parting or side parting can be tried. Out turns are of the retro style and to add bounce one could always use the styling gels. Braids, curls, spirals and the mermaid or vagabond hairstyle is possible with hair extensions.

Modern Women Hair Styles1. Always try to have an easy style that will keep you looking good from morning to midnight without too much effort, a fun look for a frivolous event, or a classic coiffure for a glamorous celebration.

2. A heart-shaped face, softness at the temples and fullness just below the ear level suits you the best. Avoid a center parting, as it tends to emphasize your pointed chin, instead part your hair on one side or wear it without a parting. If your hair is short, turn the ends inwards.

3. For a round face shape, the hair should be cut on your cheeks to shade them and narrow down the sides. A shoulder length cut will help make your face look longer and slimmer. Avoid fringes and curls. A soft feathery look is the most flattering. Straight long hair gives a stunning effect.

Selecting Hairstyles To Suit Your Hair Texture, Hair Type And Face Shape

Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 13, 2009

Before deciding on a hairstyle you should take into consideration your hair texture and hair type and opt for a style you can manage easily. You should also consider whether a particular hairstyle will suit your face shape.

Short Blonde Hair StyleFine Hair – There are various ways in which you can add body and volume to fine hair. These include correct cutting and shaping techniques, chemical wave or root lift applications. Choose styles with minimum graduation such as bob cuts and wedges. Layers will create an illusion of thickness. Keep hair short to shoulder length.

Coarse Hair – To help disguise an overall heavy look, cut is very important. Look for hairstyles that lessen the bulk and weight that coarse hair produces. Layer cuts or razor cuts will thin out the thickness of your hair, and in the process, give a sleeker finish.

Straight Hair – Simple, geometric haircuts like bobs are perfect for straight hair of any texture. If you prefer your hair long, tapered layers along the face will soften hard lines. For extra volume, add layers from the last three inches to the ends.

Curly Hair – Possibly the most versatile of all. You can use straightening products or let it go soft and curly on its own. Layered hair cuts reduce bulk and the curls are easier to maintain. If you wear your hair long, the curls tend to be slightly looser with the weight of your hair. Razor-cuts are not advised for hair that tends to be frizzy.

Your best cut is determined by your face, so strive for a hairstyle that works with your particular face shape. Using this strategy will help create a balance that can change the appearance of a face shape and also emphasize your best features.

Here are some guidelines:

Square Face – Choose a hairstyle that will create softness and detract from a square jaw line such as long layers with soft waves, curls or choppy ends. You can also get away with short, spiky cuts and long, sleek styles with layers that start at the jawline and continue downward. A centre parting or chin length bobs and square bangs (fringes) on the forehead will accentuate a square face, so avoid those geometric lines.

Round Face – Try cuts that fall just below the chin. Soft, graduated layers are ideal because they make your face appear slimmer and remove volume from the sides. Consider wispy and tapered ends. These de-emphasize the roundness of your face. Add some height to the top of the head to make your face look longer.

Long Face – Choose a style with layers or go for a chin length bob with a fringe which will create horizontal lines. Scrunch dried or curly bobs balance a long face. Brow-skimming bangs are also ideal because they create the illusion of width. Avoid short cuts or styles that add height on top.

Heart shaped Face – Opt for long sideswept bangs and a length that frames the jaw line. Keep top layers soft and long. Avoid short, blunt-cut bangs and harsh, choppy layers.

Oval Face – With this face shape, you have the advantage of being able to pull off any look. However, much depends on the quality of hair; thin, wavy, straight etc. Avoid short layers that add height on top of your head. This will make your face appear long. If your hair is thick or curly, avoid a blunt cut.

Trendy Short Hair Styles

Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 10, 2009

IT is a complete fallacy that any person looks best in short hair, long hair, or medium-length hair. Any length can be becoming to you. What you must recognize is the limitations of each hair length, what hair styles can be worn with hair of that length, and if you will be happy within the limitations. There is a vast array of trendy hair styles which may suit you.

Short Different Color Hair StylesLet us suppose you choose shoulder-length hair. You could probably wear it in a pony tail, a pageboy, a chignon, an upsweep, or almost any kind of back-interest hairdo. If these were the things you wanted to do with your hair, then it would be a fine choice of length. But if you wanted the long hair to be worn in a poodle, or to make it appear short and forward in any way, it would obviously be impossible.

In deciding on the hair length you want, you must of course consider its texture and degree of curl. You realize that if in the case cited above the wearer’s hair is perfectly straight, she will need a permanent for practically all of the hairdos mentioned, except the pony tail and perhaps the chignon. Therefore if she wanted long hair but did not want to have a permanent, she would have to settle for the pony tail and forgo the others.

If you should choose medium-length hair, the way you wear it will be determined by the cut. For instance, if you wanted to wear it fluffy about the face, in most cases this would mean the very front ends would have to be cut a good deal shorter than the rest. Don’t make the mistake of leaving the front ends and curling them up tightly to make them appear short.

This point about cutting would apply to any length regardless of its over-all appearance which might at first glance indicate that “She wears her hair long” or “Her hair is medium-length.”

There is always a combination of several lengths. This, incidentally, is the way you achieve naturalness, because such a hairdo can be simply brushed into place, eliminating the need for setting it in pin-curls or fastening it with barrettes or bobby pins.

You may have been going along up to now on the assumption that your physical type or some other factor restricts you to wearing your hair in one length only. A little thought should convince you that there is no such thing as looking best in long hair or short. Just remember that the proper lines in any one of the many trendy hairstyles available can favor your face and features, regardless of the length of the hair.

To illustrate this point, imagine one model in two or more hairdos. This should prove my contention that there need be no restrictions as to hair length or style, no matter what type of face or features you have.


The hair may be anything from very short to very long, yet always becoming to the same face
One style, for example, for wavy to curly hair, may be cut approximately two inches in length and waved. The back could be set in pin-curls.

The same girl can wear her hair much shorter in summertime as the warmth brings out more curl. She may have a hairdo partly curled through the top in curls and the remainder brushed into place.

You do have greater choice in your hairstyle than you ever imagined. Trendy hair styles which may suit you are certainly not limited to one length only.

Cute Layered Short Hairstyles

Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 8, 2009

Cute layered hairstyles are sexy and make a fun and flirty choice, they are perky and can complete very well with the sleek sophisticated look of long demure styles. They are easy to style at home, and be made to look different very easily by the use of curling irons, bobby pins, crimpers, beads elastics, ribbons and a whole lot of other accessories.

Crazy Short Hair StyleLayered hairstyles of a medium to short length not only offer the wearer a cute look, they are also perfect for women who want to look sophisticated, yet styled, without having to undertake all the maintenance required for long hair. Medium and short hair is feminine and flirty as well as simple to care for. Layered hairstyles in these lengths make the best possible advantage of all the facial features.

Medium length hair generally reaches from below the jaw-line to as much as several inches below the collar. Although different stylists all have their own opinion on this! Short hair is what it says it is. short, while long hair is from shoulder length to longer. (to quote from the musical “Hair). When you select a hairstyle for medium length hair which is layered, you do have to take a couple of important considerations into account. It is not only the length of the hair which matters, in order for the style to suit you, you need to take into cognizance the shape of your face. A hairstyle should enhance your features.

Jagged and angled ends will affect how the hairstyle is shaped to the head as well as how it lays on the face and shoulders. Keeping the layer at the top long gives a smooth look to the style, and having different lengths throughout the body of the hair will create a full, more voluminous look. A great number of layers might provide more volume, but it is generally difficult to style yourself, and if your hair is naturally curly, natural waves will form which might tangle amongst the layers.

Obviously your professional hair stylist will be able to assist you with regards to what look suits you best. A combination of different layers and features are able to create many varied styles, but consulting with your hair stylist will help you to decide what look would be best for you, before you have it cut.

Layered hairstyles can be good for as much as eight weeks without needing to trim. However if your hairstyle has a great many layers it is probably wise to have a trim more frequently to keep the cut looking good. Regular use of a good conditioner will prevent split ends and keep your layered hairstyle looking great.
