    Short Hair Style Trends

    Nothing says “Hello” like a new sophisticated short hair style. Ladies when you see the upcoming fashion for this year, the first thing that comes to mind has to be chique. The new wave neon retro chique has swept through all aspects of fashion. We are now seeing that glamorous sex appeal from the fifties and early sixties; a time when women could flaunt their stuff without showing any of it. Hair styles in those days mimicked the fashion. It was worn with the same elegance and grace, yet it was styled with that little hint of spice.

    “bring your short hair style along for the journey”

    We are seeing more and more celebrities in music videos and red carpeted events trying to obtain this same goal, and even though the fashion seems to be falling back in time, it has been revamped by a new millennium charm. So come on girls, if you are going to purchase the new threads for this year, then it’s time to bring your short hair style along for the journey.

    Short haircuts in the last few years have been worn with much more texture to the hair style. We have seen the spiky, flipped, and bed-look hair styles of the past, but this year short haircuts are being jazzed up with class. Nonchalant crops are the rave as well as tailored made cuts for your face shape and image. Sort hair styles are worn smooth and free. Products that are used more for polish than security, and cutting techniques create weight and fullness.

    Not Your Average Bob

    The short bob hair style is smoking hot, but don’t think that you can just have your average classic bob sliced into your hair and get away with it. This century has taught us nothing if not to think that bigger and better. The advancement of the bob has reached all limits of the imagination and exaggeration. Look at most of the celebrities today, everyone is rocking the bob hair style in their very own signature way. The bob is a tricky haircut for most face shapes, so you really must watch the lines and sections of this haircut to make sure that the length fits you. Stronger angles and soft layers around the crown create more depth and volume. And for all you ladies that are still afraid to give up your long locks, you can make the length as dramatic as you want in the front. The most important thing to remember when playing around with the short bob hair style today is that lines must be more severe. You can add bangs to soften your forehead, or keep length around your face just make sure that the intensity and glamour are still there.


    • Keep your hair smooth and sleek, but still maintain volume around your crown.

    • Try to add roundness to the overall finish. You can do this by applying a volumizing mousse to the roots only and work with a medium round brush for drying. Direct the hair dryer clean off the ends of the hair, so they are smooth instead of beveled.

    • If you are going to work with curls, incorporate many different lengths to the hair style. Curly hair works best when it is shaped in multiple layered lengths to create depth, volume, and shape. Always apply any hair care product upside down in hair and lightly scrunch towards the roots.

    • Definitely go for that extreme cropped haircut this year, but be careful of your hair color. When the hair is framing the face, the hair color can do everything to your overall look. Opt for a more dramatic all over hair color with extreme richness and shine.

    • And most important don’t be afraid! This year’s fashion and style is a little more extreme, leaving your hair style to follow suit. I know it can be scary, but I think it is good to make a complete change. It is always better to jump into the pool all at once than sticking a toe in one at a time.
