    So here it is and I love it. Pictures from the winner of the”British Hairdressing Awards.”(Now note the word “hairdressing” which highly implies the most extreme of the creatives in the hair business as far as I’m concerned.)

In the dressing of hair there is no end to where the imagination can take the artistic hairdresser, especially with so many amazing products and accessories out there now, like nbr hair extensions which give you a whole new head of hair!

    Short Funky Hairstyles . . . Showing Up All Over Hollywood

    Short Funky Hairstyles

    Mena Suvari wore long hair for years, and the only thing that she changed about it was her hair color. So the new short funky hairstyle Mena is sporting these days is about as drastic a hairstyle change as it gets. You may remember her for her leading role in the Oscar Award winning American Beauty, but she has shown a versatility of talent to play a wide variety of roles, such as American Pie and Beauty Shop.

    Mena-Suvari buzz cut

    Don’t you love it when women go fearlessly head on into a new short funky hairstyle? (Remember Demi Moore and Natalie Portman?) It’s so gutsy! Just last week, cameras caught Mena Suvari, in her new funky town buzz cut hairdo. She’s back in town to film her lead role in the “Garden of Eden”.

    Charlize Theron

    She first showed up in a short funky hairstyle in her role as Furiose in the Mad Max series “Fury Road. Here she sports a boyish side part Ivy League look that is stunning on her.

    Agyness Deyn

    Started wearing her hair short while still a teenager and her iconic short hairstyle even have a name of its own “the Aggie”. You know when you have a hairstyle named after you, you’re in the big-time. Agyness looks gorgeous in any hairstyle but she really turns heads when she steps out in one of her well known edgy short hairstyles.

    Natalie Portman

    First went short for her role as Evey Hammond in the movie V for Vendetta and she got so much positive feedback on her buzz cut look that she showed up at the Saturn Awards where she received the best actress award sporting her now famous funky short hair style.

    Demi Moore

    For her role in GI Jane, Demi had to shave it all off, but still looked terrific, (don’t you think?). It was reported that she hated the look and has never been seen with really short hair since.

    Let’s face it… The buzz cut isn’t for everyone, but if you want a funky, quick and easy hairdo, this may just be the funky short hairstyle for you. To pull this haircut off, you need a good self-image, a nice shaped head, preferably thick hair and honestly, a well proportioned body helps too! If you do decide to try one out at home, I wrote a step by step guide to a DIY Buzz Cut that you’ll want to read before getting the clippers out.

    Funky Short Hairstyle Trends From Framesi

    Funky Short Hair Style

    Can you spot how the Framesi designers have taken a new look into the next, funkier level? OK, so the majority of people may not run to their hairdresser tomorrow asking for one of these funky short hairstyles. But, if you watch closely, the trend that will trickle down, will be a less daring variation on these themes, a more subtle variation.

    Funky Short Hair Style

    For sometime now, we have seen the silhouettes of short hair styles become more rounded, more geometrically shaped. The Victoria Beckman (Posh Spice) funky short hair style, was probably the most influential in setting the trend. The basic idea is long layers, shorter in back and longer on the sides.

    But here, Framesi’s designer group, takes it to the next level with a more maverick look to it. Strong asymmetrical short hair style shapes, with a layering of hair color techniques, are showing up in both men and women’s funky short hair cuts.

    You asked for funky hair styles, so just take a gander at what these hair stylists give you!

    Crazy Hair Style From NAHA Hairstyling Awards

    I love it! I wait all year to see the novel creations that hairdressers will whip up for the North American Hair Styling Awards. The NAHA Awards Show was held last week at Mandalay Bay Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada. It is the most prestigious photographic beauty competition hair stylists can participate in. Give hair stylists a reason to create some funky hair styles and pair that up with some equally imaginative, photographers. . .And here you have it!

    Hair designers from the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia and Switzerland contended to become the best in a specific category of their choice. These dedicated hairdressers work extremely hard to compete and are recognized with unlimited networking, educational and professional growth opportunity, not to speak of the confidence boost this work gives them.

    Congratulations to all who participated . . . And may the force be with you!

    Asymmetrical Short Hairstyles

    Who Does it Work For:  This short hair look works great on round, oval, heart, and square face shapes. It’s best for medium to thick hair. Take caution if you have fine textures, as this cut could make your hair look stringy.

    How to Style:  Apply a volumizing mousse on towel dried hair. Flip hair upside down and rough dry it with your fingers for extra volume. Use a flat iron to enhance a smooth finish to the haircut. Finish with a spray wax for a playful texture.

    Recommended Products:  Kenra Root Lifting Spray Volumizer and Goldwell StyleSign Unlimitor Spray Wax

    Dianna Agron layered bob with bangs

    Short Bob with Bangs

    Who Does it Work For: This short style looks great on oval, heart, square, and oblong face shapes (round face shapes generally want to steer clear of this one). It is an ideal cut for those of you with fine to medium textures of hair.

    How to Style: Apply a blow dry gel to towel dried hair. Quick dry hair until you have removed about half of the moisture and then use a round brush section by section. Touch up the bangs with a flat iron.

    Recommended Products: Paul Mitchell Quick Slip


    short sleek crop short hairstyle

    Emma Watson sleek pixie short hairstyle

    Sleek & Short Hair

    Who Does it Work For: This style is good for oval, round, and most heart face shapes. It works best on fine and medium hair with a straight texture. If you have natural waves or curl, it will take extra styling.

    How to Style: Apply a medium hold gel to towel dried hair. Create a clean part and comb your hair back, in the way you want it to appear when styled. Allow the hair to dry naturally and then apply gloss drops for added shine and smoothness. Finish with an extra hold hairspray.

    Recommended Products: Paul Mitchell Super Clean Sculpting Gel, and Kenra Platinum Finishing Spray


    Jennifer Aniston medium bob with blonde highlights

    Wavy bob short hairstyle

    Smooth or Wavy Bob

    Who Does it Work For: Jennifer Anniston obviously! But besides Jennifer, this hairstyle looks awesome on round, heart, oval, and square face shapes (this style can further elongate oblong face shapes). It also works great on fine, medium, and thick hair that’s straight or wavy.

    How to Style: Blow dry your hair with a flat brush section by section. For more fullness, rough dry hair upside down till your hair is mostly dry and finish with a round brush.  Touch it up with a flat iron for extra smoothness. Or, create big waves using a curling iron vertically in the hair with 1 to 2 inch sections. Finish with a flexible hold hairspray to lock in the style.

    Recommended Products: Tigi Rockaholic Fun Times Aero


    Razored pixie haircut

    Razored pixie haircut

    Razored Pixie

    Who Does it Work For: This short hairstyle works on oval, heart, and oblong face shapes. It also works well with fine, medium, and thick hair. If you have wavy hair, ask your hairstylist if a razor cut is the best option for your texture (it varies from person to person).

    How to Style: Quick dry your hair with your fingers, blow drying against the natural growth on the top and smoothing down the sides and back. If needed, touch it up with a flat iron. Finish with a texture creme on dry hair to give the style definition, especially around the hairline.

    Recommended Products: Bb Texture Hair (Un)Dressing Creme

    15 Short Bob Hairstyles – Not to Miss!

    These adorable short bob hairstyles will make you want to cut your hair!

    There’s no hairstyle that will invigorate your spirit more, or make you feel younger, than the short bob.  Short bob hairstyles are super cute, easy to manage, versatile and there’s a bob style to suit everyone!  If you’re the edgy type, try a choppy bob, or an asymmetrical cut. If you are leaning toward something more casual with a hint of sophistication, opt for a short layered bob, or a stacked bob. Your options are practically endless. Why is it so many women have trouble cutting their hair shorter anyway? Take a look at our newest short bob hairstyles for some inspiration.

    Stacked Bob Hairstyles

    The stacked bob is a perfect example of these styles resilience and flexibility.  This look flatters all face shapes and it ooozes a modern chic vibe.  The smooth, polished look is super easy to get for gals with straight or slightly wavy hair.  Hair that has a more determined wave or curl pattern will do much better with layers that allow the curls to flourish.  Layering this bob will cut styling time to a minimum and that equates to healthier, shinier hair.

    Super Short Layered Bob Hairstyles

    Carey Mulligan puts a whole new spin on short haircut ideas with this adorable look!  By creatively infusing a twisted bang with a couple of mini-fishtail braids up top, this short bob hairstyle is totally transformed.  This look stirred up a whirlwind!

    Asymmetrical Short Bob Hairstyle

    The asymmetrical bob is characterized by one side of the hair being longer than the other.  In most cases, the asymmetrical haircut leaves the long side of the hair falling near, or just past the chin. This look carries a certain flair for style – definitely a good option for those who are fashion forward!

    Short Blunt Bob Hairstyles

    Agyness Deyn and Katie Perry radiate a classic vintage style in these short and sweet bob hairstyles. The look Katie is wearing is a good choice for women with oval, round or square shaped faces, as this length elongates the face. The short blunt bob Agyness has is best for oval, oblong and square faces. These styles make the neck appear longer, for a statuesque look.  Short blunt bob haircuts are a great choice for women with fine hair, as the bluntness of the cut creates the illusion of thicker hair.  Women with fine hair love this cut!

    Choppy layers is a great way to introduce more texture and edginess to your bob, or any short hairstyle for that matter. This cutting technique creates volume, movement and texture to the hair. Cutting irregular layers into the hair allows for more styling options and definitely more attitude.  These styles suit all face shapes. Take a bit of inspiration from Julianne Hough and Katie Holmes!

    Nicole Richie in a Short Bob Hairstyles with Side Swept Bangs

    Short Bob Hairstyles with Side Swept Bangs

    Side-swept bangs can be worn spikey and long, smooth and sweet, or any other variety of ways you can come up with. Rhianna and Nicole Richie’s side swept bangs look seriously chic coupled with a short bob haircut.  Adding bangs is a great way to shorten the look of longer faces while drawing attention to the eyes.

    edgy short bob hairstyle

    Edgy Short Bob Hairstyles

    Some girls just need to appear more complex, and a short edgy bob hairstyle will always do the trick!  Why? An edgy bob mixes the classic with the bizarre, for head turning results. Sharp asymmetrical blunt-cut bangs are the focus point of this cut; add to that an asymmetrical short bob with unconventional chipped edgings, and you’ve got a recipe for pure avant-garde style!
