Watch this trend toward women short cuts to show itself soon

It’s fun to keep an eye on Antoinette Beenders, to see what she’s got up her sleeve for new hair style creations. As Aveda’s, global creative director, she is a recognized visionary and creative source in the world of hair styling. Her list of awards and achievements is extensive, from British hairdresser of the Year in 2004, to Master of Arts Award from Horst Rechelbacher, founder of Aveda Corporation.

“Women Short Cuts Hair Trend”

On the cover of the most recent issue of American Salon Magazine is one of Beenders new women short cuts. She says, “There has been a focus on femininity for the past few years, but we’re seeing a movement away from long, flowing hair toward women short cuts that are a bit stronger, more androgynous.”

The collection of women short cuts she shows in American Salon, are all strong hair shapes with maximum shine. Strong lines are given to a short bob that is ear-length with straight heavy bangs and a blunt cut perimeter. Styling this cut straight and smooth and creating maximum shine with hair color and product makes this a true Vogue, look.

Other women short cuts Antoinette shows in this issue resemble throwbacks to the 60’s and early 70’s. They include a short boyish hairstyle like Mia Farrow wore in Rosemary’s Baby and classic halo short cut (think Julius Cesar) with a new twist.

Who can wear these women short cuts? Short cuts balance best with a small to medium frame. Strong bone structure and large eyes are dramatic features that are played up best by these short cuts. If you tend to be on the shy side, and haven’t worn short cuts, you may want to think twice before cutting it all off. Cutting your hair this short can have a devastating effect on the unsuspecting. It can produce a feeling of being over exposed, like a bit of you has been striped away, or that you’ve lost some of your femininity. The psychology of our crowning glory runs deep. (Funny, but our animal friends are not that different from us. Have you ever seen a dog that cringes for days after a bad short cut?)

The December issue of, American Salon Magazine, recognizes Beenders and 19 other leading hairdressers for their outstanding contributions to the industry. Hat’s off to the editors who put this piece together and gives these dynamic women well deserved recognition!

Your hair salon may not have this women short cuts issue out for public viewing, but ask, almost all hair salons subscribe.
