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 to applaud 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 radiating 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.

Difficult to sculpt yourself, the base cut needs a particularly competent professional stylist. It's important to ensure the cut will flatter your face when not worn up.
When your hair's wet, prep it using mousse or volumizing product. Blow dry upside down to create volume. When damp, take a small amount of pomade and using your fingers run it through the sides to direct it back, keeping it close to the scalp. Comb the long section (the pompadour area) forward and begin blow drying upward.
Once completely dry, section off starting from the crown forward (make sure to clip these sections out of the way). Take each section and tease at the root for a lift before spraying, then re-clip it out the way. Once each section of longer pieces has been clipped, begin curling. Use a small curling iron, and begin behind the crown, curling backward. Complete each section, working towards the fringe. Once completely curled, use a little more pomade and run through the curls to loosen them up. Blow dry on low heat, forcing the part to the preferred side.
To get the cut and especially the color make sure the salon you choose is up to the task. Going to a quality salon may be more expensive but it's worth it in the long run. Even more so if you are going from a dark color to platinum. If not done carefully it could all go horribly wrong. When bleaching, preparation is essential, three days before your appointment it's worth a deep conditioning treatment. Refrain from shampooing for a couple of days prior to treatment, the natural oil that's produced is scalp protection from bleach. It's also worth deep conditioning after you bleach.
After all, the work to get this platinum color it's worth taking the necessary steps to maintain it. Ensure shampoos or conditioners are color safe. Use a purple shampoo to negate the brassiness that'll try to overtake that beautiful platinum. Every 2-3 weeks use a protein mask as a response and defense against further damage.
Since the work put into maintaining platinum is colossal, it's gratifying that styling is easy! From damp, add some texturizing cream and blow dry using a paddle brush. Loosen the fringe by blow drying in the opposite direction that you would like it to settle. Use the end of a rat tail comb to separate your bangs to where you would like them positioned. Once dry use a small flat iron to straighten, focus on your bangs. When you have finished put a very small amount of matte pomade in your fingers, and distribute to the ends using your hands, shaping to the preferred direction.
Arctic Graduated Bob.
It's important you get both the cut and color done by a professional. Color maintenance and care are essential after bleaching to an icy shade of platinum. After coloring, use a purple shampoo, a product that neutralizes any copper tones. The intense purple color additives in these products leave a slight residue taking the edge off any brassy tones. A good color shampoo will also have chelating agents to remove heavy metals and other undesirables. Depending on your hair type, sometimes leave the conditioner in for about 5 minutes prior to rinsing. Use hydration serums to help combat the dryness and frizz caused by bleaching. Try a toning mask to help keep the color vivid. Despite your maintenance work, you'll eventually need it touched up.
The effect shouldn't take too long but requires a touch of effort. The most important part is making sure it's cut by someone who specializes in short hairstyles. Apply shine serum prior to blow-drying, use a large round brush to taper the ends toward your face. Use a flat iron to shape and finish with a small amount of light-hold hairspray.
