    Beyonce Hair is Mod Inspired

    Do you have the face shape for this cut?

    Beyonce has the face shape and personality to rock this 60’s mod inspired short crop hair style. She released a teaser video debuting “Countdown,” off her new album 4 and she wears this wig which mirrors a version of a new short hairstyle trend on the rise.


    Get More: Beyoncé, MTV Shows

    Beyonce’s heart face shape is the perfect face shape for this short crop hair style.  An oval face shape would also be a perfect fit. Beyonce is the ultimate changeover queen and we love that about her!  She is a model of style and grace and is a catalyst to consider transformations of our own.  She’s gone from straight to curly and from brunette to blonde and looks fabulous in just about any hair color and cut she chooses! (I did think she was colored with way too much gold once and it was an obvious clash with her skin tone.)

    Short Crop, Mod Inspired Razor Cut

    Nick Arrojo, celebrity hair stylist and master educator and the Empire Education Group have just released this modern twist on this 60’s inspired short crop hair style. We’ve been seeing versions of this cut popping up everywhere lately, so if you like cute, trendy hair . . . consider some kind of a crop hair style.  And, an added benefit of this crop hair style is it’s versatility. Razor cutting gives more styling flexibility to the hair cut.

    The above model has a heart-shaped face, just like Beyonce’s, and it’s a perfect match for the silhouette of this haircut.  Arrojo explains,”  “This model’s fine, dense hair and facial shape inspired me to go for a sixties feeling with a new twist,” He used a razor to create movement and texture through the top. Color was also used to enhance the dimension in the cut.

    Do you have the face shape to wear a crop hair style?  

    If you’re not sure what face shape you have check out your face shape  and hair type here.  But, don’t disallow the possibility of being able to wear a short crop hair style just because you don’t have the perfect heart-shaped face or oval face shape shown above.  Every face shape is not a perfect oval, heart, round or square shape.  Just look around . . . there are no two face shapes alike! But, your face shape will fall into one category more than another.  An experienced hair dresser will know if the short crop hair style is a good fit for you. Talk with a seasoned professional before cutting it all off. Or . . . you could just slip on a wig like Beyonce!

    • GRADUATED CROP HAIRSTYLE~~THE COLOR Platinum makes this haircut fabulous and if you’re young, a bit on the bold side and have a cut that’s short and textured, the way to wear it is with intentionally dark roots showing through. Makes re-touch time lots easier!

    • GRADUATED CROP HAIRSTYLE~~HOW TO STYLE IT For a highly textured feeling, try out the crèmes, waxes and molding muds. Work a small amount into the roots, then blowdry as you finger-style, curving layers over your fingers. Liquefy pomade between your fingers and detail individual ends to stand up.

    Chop Crop How To

    Chop Hairstyle

    Chop Crop Short Hairstyles How To

    This shorter version of the chop crop cut features irregular ends, long interior layers and piecy bangs that you can play up or down as desired. At Elon salon in Marietta, GA, Stacy King says the haircut isn’t intended to look perfectly in place, which makes it ideal for those who like a more casual look or aren’t great at precision hairstyle finishing. Long bangs are snipped into a curved shape to frame the eyes, but can be brushed back into the style anytime you want. Worn in front of the ears, the cut takes on a whole new look that can be styled full or sleek.

    • This Hairstyle Works Best If:

      • Your hair is medium in volume and medium in texture.

      • Your hair is naturally straight or slightly bodified.


    • This Hairstyle Requires:

      • Daily blow-drying. Start with freshly shampooed hair, towel-dry and add a dollop of mousse, working it evenly from roots to ends. Comb hair behind your ears and begin blow-drying by bending up the ends with a round brush. Lift top layers to add some volume then curve bangs slightly around the brush. Now, finger-style the top moving pieces to either side of the part and pulling down a few more pieces to act as bangs if desired.

      • A trim every 4 to 6 weeks.

    • This Hairstyle is Not Recommended If:

      • Your hair is sparse or very fine.

      • You have somewhat irregular features . . . this cut reveals all!
