    A Short Hairstyle for Kim Kardashian?

    Short Hairstyle

    Create a Short Hairstyle with Waves

    Kim Kardashian, a maid of honor in sister Khloe Kardashian’s wedding this weekend, wore this short hairstyle recently that I loved. Kim Kardashian has very long hair, so her hair was pinned up to get this faux short hairstyle look. The good news is you can get the same hairstyle whether you have a long or short hairstyle naturally, here’s how;

    • Step 1: Start with clean, damp hair and run a curl enhancing product like Joico Curl Definer Crème Gel through strands. Comb through with a wide tooth comb.

    • Step 2: Use a diffuser attachment on your hair dryer when drying your hair to bring out maximum body and wave. Only dry your hair until it is about 85% dry.
    • Step 3: After your hair has completely dried, spray hair with a setting spray and then roll hair onto hot rollers. Try Redken Hot Sets Thermal Setting Mist that helps create a soft hold while protecting hair from heat.

    • Step 4: Remove your hair from the rollers after they have cooled (about 20 minutes or so).
    • Step 5: If you are trying to achieve this short hairstyle when you have long hair, take the bottom layers of hair out from the rollers first and pin those up toward your nape to create the illusion of shorter hair. Then take out the rest of your hair from the rollers and style around the pinned hair. If you already have a short hairstyle, simply remove your hair from the rollers and finger style into place. Create a deep side part if you want to re-create Kim Kardashian’s same short hairstyle look.

    This is a fun and flirty short hairstyle no matter what length your hair is. Try tucking a flower into one side to give this short hairstyle an exotic edge!

    Women Short Cuts are Back in Style

    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.

    5 Short Haircuts We’re Loving Right Now

    Carey Mulligan Sexy short hairstyle

    Thinking about short hair for the summer months?  Check out these 5 short haircuts!

    Short hair can very liberating and a wonderful way to kick off the spring and summer seasons. Short haircuts can also be a great way to avoid some of the problems associated with summer hair, like drying and bleached out color from too much fun in the sun. Paired with casual outfits or sophisticated evening wear, a well done short haircut can be as versatile as long locks.


    Michelle Williams Academy Awards 2012 Blonde Crop CutMichelle Williams shows off her gams while grocery shopping with a female pal in Tribeca in New York City

    Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams’ platinum pixie cut looks just as fabulous dressed up for the red carpet as it does when she is just running around doing errands.  The secret to this look is keeping up with the color and maintaining  the integrity of the hair by conditioning.  Dark roots will make this short haircut look sloppy rather than sleek, so if you are going to commit to super short hair with a super blonde color, make sure you are prepared for the upkeep.


    Emma Watson at 2012 World Film Premier

    Harry Potter actress Emma Watson looks so fabulous and glamorous with her short hair that I almost want to get the same haircut.  (Except I’m about 30 years older and a lot less stunning than the former Hermione Granger…!)  Her pixie haircut plays up her high cheekbones and striking eyes, so that her face truly shines beneath the cut.  And with a bit of gel to add texture or to slick back the front, her haircut can be either playful or sophisticated.

    Pop singer Rhianna looks fierce and fabulous in her cropped haircut.  Opting for longer pieces in front gives her that edgy look that is soooo RIRI. It also gives her more styling options (not that she needs them with the hair stylists she has on call!) But longer pieces on top will help you mix it up a bit if a super short haircut isn’t your thing.

    Gorgeous Rooney Mara could give us all lessons on how to style short hair while growing out the cut.  Her extreme makeover for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has yielded a lovely and elegant look post filming.  With short pieces accentuating her face to sleek and swept back styles, Rooney’s short haircut is dramatic and graceful all at the same time.

    British actress Cary Mulligan is growing out her super short haircut, and the transition is lovely. With dimensional layers she achieves a soft, tousled look that still allows for some braids and styling when she wants to change her look up a bit.  This cut would be great for summer because it requires very little up-keep and can be styled with your fingers and left to air dry.
