Even though many believe long is beautiful, the designs and styles are rather limited. For short, the situation is different. You can find hundreds of new looks and appearances with different unique haircut styles to choose from that will suit you. In addition, it’s easier to manage short hair and keep it healthy. This is the reason that many modern women prefer to have shorter styles. Not only are they easier to maintain but look great both curly and straight or somewhere in between.
Women with straight but fine strands can face an awfully difficult task if they have long locks. The same can be true at the other end of the scale with thick hair. The problems each extreme can face are similar but for different reasons. Fine hair often gets oily and lank at the roots but porous and weak at the ends giving the dilemma of which problem to tackle first in your treatment regime; heavy conditioners may prevent breakage and damage at the ends but add to the oiliness at the root whereas light conditioners may be insufficient for the delicate areas.
Thick hair often tends to be coarse and dry, again leading to breakage and damage at the ends no matter how much heavy conditioner you throw at it. A way of eradicating this problem is by going for shorter designs which are fashionable and manageable. Not only do they require much less maintenance but also thanks to their ability to add volume to fine hair and eliminating any damaged ends in the case of thick hair. The following are a few ideas which will make you think about striking out in that direction.
The name may imply otherwise but this is a short style, it’s worn in conjunction or hybridized with another style on the rest of the hair. Leave longer bangs falling over the face. To achieve this look your stylist will have to make a side part and then run a flat iron over the falling locks. Women with curly hair can also wear this. Here Posh Spice aka Victoria Beckham is sporting some long side swept bangs with highlights.
There aren’t many other short styles that are as fashionable and versatile as the bob cut. In fact, the bob is a very broad term and there are many different varieties such as flipped bob, Chinese bob, shingle bob, long bob, shaggy bob, A-line bob, inverted bob and many others. Using our makeover utility is a good way of finding out which suits you the best.

A pixie cut is simple and capable of making fine and straight hair appear stronger and less flaccid. Women with pixie cuts never need more than one or two minutes to towel dry after a shower. The only trouble with this style is it won’t suit everyone in its most simple form however you can tweak it to suit your face shape. In simple terms, add height if you have a round face and keep the sides cut close add volume to the sides if you have a slender one.
