Short hairstyles are a huge summer trend, offering versatility like no other makeover. Whether you go for short bobs, crops or pixie cuts, you will nail the style!
Most women love changes in their overall look! We vary the style of our hair, its colour, make it straight or create volume with curls. However, when it comes to cutting them, things get serious. Most of us just trim our hair from time to time and it is more than enough. On the other hand, the brave dive into the short haircut trend, going from long locks to tiny manes.
The cute and trendy pixie is styling many heads, creating amazing looks. Hollywood celebrities have been embracing it for a while and are inspiring some of us to follow their lead. The long tresses of Anne Hathaway and Charlize Theron were replaced by the very chic, short haircuts, which intensified their natural beauty, turning all the attention to the face and exposed neck.
When thinking about cutting your hair short, first consider your face shape. It is not that any particular face cannot result in a great style, but a few fine points should be taken into consideration.
For round faces, it would be better to cut it tight on the sides, so you don’t widen the frame. Long faces should opt to keep a fringe with less volume at the top. Small faces tend to look best with less volume on the sides and no fringe.
If you’ve mastered these points, you will rock the style. Another thing to keep in mind is that you will certainly need to pay more visits to your hairdresser to keep the cut together at all times.
Contrary to popular belief, short hair gives you the opportunity of styling it in many different ways. A sexy touch can be achieved with styling powders, which you can apply on the tips of the hair, about two centimetres from the root. It offers a matte finish and wonderful volume.
The wet look can be done with the use of gels and shine sprays. Apply it on damp or dry hair; with a tail comb create the sleek look. For a textured style, make use of styling pastes to mould it in any way you like. It will hold tight all day long; you can apply more during the course of the day.
Don’t forget that when you choose to go short, your prominent features like big lips, eyes or nose are going to be overexposed. Make sure you know what you want to show off and what you want to hide. A great short haircut is all about the details to make your face look its best!
