It is not everyone’s cup of tea to be able to manage long hair; and not everyone looks good with long hair too. So obviously, for a lot of people, short hair is the best way to go about. However, what many people feel is that getting short hair is very boring and plain. Contrary to popular belief, there are a number of interesting hair styles that you can try out, if you want to keep short hair.
Here are the trendy short hairstyles to impress everyone around you.
You must have had them as a child, but there is no harm in having them as an adult too. Bangs give your face a younger look, and work especially well on cute, round faces. They can also give an extremely trendy look on thin, long faces, when combined with medium-length Bobs.
These have been in fashion for quite sometime now, and the regular bob cut has been experimented with a lot. There are small, conventional bobs that add volume to those with thin faces, and medium sized bobs that give a very stylish look on other faces.
When getting a bob done, you should try and keep the layers minimal, as the more you get into layering, the more you are moving away from the idea of a bob cut. A-Line bobs are a good style, if you have a good cheekbone and a nicely structured face.
3. Layered cuts
These are similar to the layering done on longer hair. You can start with the layers right from the forehead or the eye level, or from the mid-chin level, depending on the shape of your face and the kind of volume you need.
Too many layers on some people make them look rounder and fatter, while they add more volume on other faces, balancing the shape of the face. Hence, you must discuss your style at length with your stylist, when choosing to go in for layers.
4. Pixie cut
You’ve seen a lot of celebrities sporting this cut which adds to their style quotient; and you’ve seen a many teenagers with this cut because it is easy to maintain. This no-fuss haircut works best on professional attire, but with added styling can work well with any look or attire. It looks nice on petite females.
5. Punk cuts
These are increasing in popularity, especially amongst youngsters. There is no single definite cut to define punk cuts, which are edgy and unique. Stylists use a combination of spikes, layers, bangs and bobs to come up with striking hairstyles.
However, you must know that these kind of hairstyles require specific kinds of hair care products, such as shampoos, gels, styling sprays, special brushes etc. Invest in such styles, only when you have the time and money to do the follow-up care too.
When opting to keep short hair, you must consider the kind of face you have, and the kind of clothes you wear most often, so that your hairstyle compliments both. With new trends coming in almost everyday, it is now difficult to classify hairstyles in fixed categories, because stylists are constantly mixing styles and coming up with interesting patterns.
You must however, not follow trends blindly. Keep your hair quality in mind, whenever you choose to go in for a haircut. What works best on straight hair, may not work on curly hair. As a matter of fact, curly hair tends to get frizzy in short hairstyles, making it look messy.
But if maintained well, and chosen wisely, there are some wonderful short hairstyles for those with curly hair too. Hence, the point remains the same – always keep your hair quality, maintenance, and face structure in mind before going in for any haircut.
