Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 14, 2009

The short hair cut is as popular as ever and more and more women are taking the plunge and sporting ultra-short locks. From the heavily textured and spiked to the soft and feminine, there is no doubt that the short hair cut is here to stay and has proven to be one of the most popular hair cut styles among women.

Female Short hair StylesBut how do you know if you should go short with your new hair cut or when you should take the plunge? For most, the answer to these questions is going to be a personal decision, but there are some guidelines that you can follow to help you decide whether or not a short hair cut is for you.

Choosing the right hair cut style should be a joint effort between you and your stylist. With her professional advice as to what will look sensational on you and your personal preference, together you should be able to find numerous new hair cuts that are perfect for your individual personality, tastes and features.

When to go for the short hair cut and when not to

You should choose a short hair cut if you prefer shorter styles or if you have been thinking about going short for a while. If you have already worn a short hair cut in the past and loved it, then you are one step ahead of the game. Likely, you will have a good idea of what short cuts will look good on you and which cuts will give you the most styling ease and freedom.

You should not choose a short hair cut just because it is trendy or you saw it on someone else and want to achieve the same effect. While some hair cut styles will look just as great on you as they do on others, getting a short hair cut on a whim is never a good idea. If you see something you like, think about it for a while before deciding to get a new hair cut. Even better – use one of the interactive online hair galleries, to test out the look before you buy

Never get a short hair cut for emotional reasons. Having a bad hair day? Do not cut your hair off in anger. If you do, you may end up fighting with dreaded tresses that are much too short for your particular style. Instead, go for a trim or a style that is just slightly shorter than the one you already have.

How to go short

If you have never had a short hair cut, you should go shorter gradually to reduce the level of shock experienced with getting a short hair cut and to see if you are going to like wearing shorter styles. Be prepared to experience some level of shock, though, even if you only shorten your style by a few inches.

Talk to your stylist and decide what type of short hair cut is your ultimate goal. Then, choose several hair cut styles that you can get over the course of a few months that will decrease your hair’s length gradually. That way when you finally take the plunge and get the short hair cut you will know that you will be comfortable with it. Nothing is worse than trying to grow out a short hair cut that you hate.

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.

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.

But before choosing a short hairstyle for yourself, find out what your facial shape is and look at various short cuts on people with a similar shape of face as yours. So here are some of the more popular hair designs for short hair.

The Gamine Cut; a gamine crop cut looks youthful with feathery layers directed forward onto the forehead. A short layered boyish short crop with a tapered nape is very adorable and a perfect way to wear straight hair. And don’t underestimate the use of color and highlights that can really give a gamine crop cut an exquisite touch of intense class.

The Angled Bob; if you really want to make a statement, an angled bob with a shorn elevated nape is the perfect look. This buzzed nape look will certainly get you noticed! You can of course also opt for a sweet classic hairstyle and enhance it with contrasting colors. A face framing short bob with bangs can be very flattering and sexy.

The Daring Pixie Cut; when you are ready for an ultra short hair cut, then a pixie style might be just what you need. Wear it spiked or get some length through the top for a ruffled look. Add styling gel for a stunningly, bold look.

The Tapered Bob; a tapered bob with short bangs and fringy layers can be very charming. Light layering at the ends gives the hair extra swing. A couple of shorter pieces of hair around the face and a slightly angled neckline will make a bob hairstyle sophisticated.

No matter what type of short hair design you decide to go with, just remember that short hair can be chic and sexy once you have the confidence to pull off the short cut. And don’t forget that jewelry, make-up and other accessories can add more life to any short design.
