Sideswept, shiny, and healthy looking and goes with the rounder face. You can always spice things up by adding accessories. This design is also ideal for the workplace or school/college and won't need a huge amount of work.

Women's hair not only gives an integrated beauty, it also reflects temperament. Today's woman, by choosing color and form, presents succinctly and within a single gaze her conscious choices of the image she desires to present in her Socio-professional surrounding. Usually, the color and style chosen follow the requirements set by the current fashion and the stereotypes which reflect the outlook of the person who wears them.

Celebrities who currently wear or have worn their hair 'boy short' include Emma Watson (Harry Potter series), Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana), Natalie Portman (Star Wars, Black Swan), and Halle Berry (Catwoman). These leading ladies are fierce and fearless and show that short hair isn't just for the boys anymore.

Short Hair Pioneers.

Those ladies weren't the first to break onto the scene in short hairstyles. Women who first popularized short in the roaring 20s began ditching corsets and long locks for bobbed hair and flapper dresses. Boyish was in, and these ladies cut no corners for fashion.

 

Fashion is cyclical, and short hair returned in the sixties and seventies with the arrival of the Pixie cut. Actresses such as Mia Farrow (Rosemary's Baby) made a feminine version of the boy cut popular. Over the past few decades, it has evolved and changed into what it is today. A sassy, boyish cut with echoes of Mia's Pixie cut and vague memories of the roaring twenties. Each time a style returns it's modified to reflect the era it has returned to. Classic, modern, and flatters almost every face shape and body style and brings back an air of stylish sense to an otherwise dated look.

Soft, Sophisticated, Chestnut Design.

Soft and elegant with the back quite long, so girly without straying into mullet territory. The detail that makes this stand out is the delicate wisps at the nape of the neck. Those wisps are like softer versions of spikes that give an edgy feel but still keeping it feminine. The front has side-swept bangs and the top slick, adding elegant appeal. The dark color makes this one appear shinier when light strikes it, making this the best color. Accessorize with sparkling barrettes or a bejeweled headband that will make this sweet look super feminine and gorgeous.

Big Side Bangs.

The risky thing about edgy styles is they can be more difficult and often appear too extreme for the rank and file. A good example of how an edgy style can be fun, sexy, and functional. The back is longer and reaches the nape and one side has shorter tips while the other has long bangs. The top has ample volume and height and interesting spiky details. When styled like this, with some spikes, and some sleek parts, this look screams party but you can also comb it through to tone it down for a day look. Spike it up, lay it down and highlight the wisps, fringe, and so much more. Ideal for a powerful woman, or a woman of strength, stature, and unwavering style. Take advantage of some wax and hairspray, finger comb and done.

Red, Spiky and Slightly Sideswept.

A good play of light autumnal reds and browns on dark hair styled with spikes to make the wearer appear more radiant and more feminine. At first glance, this seems over the top, what makes it appear that way are the spikes from all angles but take a closer look and find some texture, dimension, and feminine details.

 

Different tones give softness to balance the texture. A reliable styling product and a comb are all you need. Slather styling product (gel or wax) onto damp tresses, section using finger-combing motions and twist the tips to make the spikes and finally, comb the short bangs down and set in place.
