In life there are so many choices we need to make and selecting a short hairstyle is as important as many so to assist you in your choice there are thousands here.
Which haircut to go for next is the perennial cycle of choices for most women. Historically it was expected of women to have long
hair and to go shorter
could exhibit a rebellious nature. In recent decades the shorter look has become perfectly acceptable. Some of the iconic short hairstyles from history are:
• The pixie – you cannot consider short hairstyles without
looking first at the pixie, pioneered in the 1960s by Twiggy, Mia Farrow and Vidal Sassoon models its as relevant now as ever. These days many celebrities sport versions of the pixie such as Carey Mulligan, Ginnifer Goodwin, Keira Knightly and Anne Hathaway making the pixie and its derivatives one of the most desirable cuts globally for so long.
• The bob – another popular cut from yesteryear was the bob. Mid length hair underwent a major transformation when the bob arrived. The great thing about the bob is you could also curl it into soft waves similar to those of flapper girls and Zelda Fitzgerald, wife of F. Scott, from the roaring '20s.
• The bowl cut – thanks to the mop top popularized by The Beatles, women came back with their own versions having straight
bangs (sometimes called a fringe in some countries). This cut has undergone many revisions in recent times with asymmetrical tips and feathered ends.
• Voluminous curls – who can forget the Marilyn Monroe or Madonna do? It may have been a few decades since this trend was started but short voluminous curls have always been en vogue especially at a formal event.
• The shaved crop – not all women can pull off a full head shave like Demi Moore or Natalie Portman so women who can although rare can be
extra eye-catching. Women who prefer it short in general have varied reasons, most don't go as far Ms Moore and Ms Portman but some want the freedom from the weight of long tresses, others are simply tired of the time, effort and money that goes into maintaining those longer locks. Whatever reason you're wanting a shorter 'do, it's important to consider the shape your face, your lifestyle and personality too. Short styles can bring a gush of
fresh air to the typical long tresses that need a lot of maintenance and
time. Let's face it who wants to keep tucking errant strands behind their ear
every 5 minutes and no one wants to spend hours trying to tame the frizz,
so a close cut style is a must. Here are galleries of all the short
haircuts you can imagine and many that can be achieved in less than 5 minutes and
are great for every occasion.
• Bangs or a Fringe - Who said bangs only go with long hair. If you have a longish bob or a lob, then you could wear sexy bangs to makeover your look. Aligned bangs falling just below the eyebrows look great with straight locks. However, if you're naturally wavy then you might choose sideswept bangs to provide a bit of a change to the way you look and feel.
• Spikes - Exclusive style for crops,
spikes can give you a feisty look. Also when combined with softer and girly accessories, they can give you a feminine yet bold look. Heart shaped or long faces can achieve this very nicely. If you want to say ‘I have arrived’ without uttering a single word, spikes are what you want. They are instant attention grabbers.
• Crops and Chops - Are fast becoming the close cut styles of choice this season. If you want to go a little on the messy side making a statement you want to crop the back and chop the sides. These uneven asymmetrical cuts make a refreshing change. They also add volume and if your strands are already thick it is low maintenance. If you're a bit thinner then you may want to use some thickening shampoo, protein mousse and styling gel to pull of this look.
• Curves or curls - Most styles are compatible with inward or outward curves at the end of the strand. It all depends on what look you want to sport. If you want to frame your face, then inward curls are better and if you want to make it appear rebellious and messy, then outward curls would be your choice.
