Many women consider their hair to be their crowning glory, and many women still carry the idea that to be a 'woman' you must have long flowing hair. Well times certainly have changed, and more and more women are realizing the beauty of shorter cuts and the manageability of them too. Women today are always on the go and with time constraints peering over their shoulders the last thing they need is a bad hair day or spending thirty minutes every morning trying to look presentable. And that is exactly why short cut hair continues to increase in popularity.
Now don't think that short hair means having no hair at all. Actually it is quite the opposite, especially for women with fine or thinning hair as shorter cuts can make hair look fuller and healthier. But whatever your reason for going short, the fact is that you have numerous options to choose from! But before choosing a short hairstyle for yourself, find out what your facial shape is and look at various short cuts on people with a similar shape of face as yours. So here are some of the more popular hair designs for short hair.
The Gamine Cut; a gamine crop cut looks youthful with feathery layers directed forward onto the forehead. A short layered boyish short crop with a tapered nape is very adorable and a perfect way to wear straight hair. And don't underestimate the use of color and highlights that can really give a gamine crop cut an exquisite touch of intense class.
The Angled Bob; if you really want to make a statement, an angled bob with a shorn elevated nape is the perfect look. This buzzed nape look will certainly get you noticed! You can of course also opt for a sweet classic hairstyle and enhance it with contrasting colors. A face framing short bob with bangs can be very flattering and sexy.
The Daring Pixie Cut; when you are ready for an ultra short hair cut, then a pixie style might be just what you need. Wear it spiked or get some length through the top for a ruffled look. Add styling gel for a stunningly, bold look.
The Tapered Bob; a tapered bob with short bangs and fringy layers can be very charming. Light layering at the ends gives the hair extra swing. A couple of shorter pieces of hair around the face and a slightly angled neckline will make a bob hairstyle sophisticated.
No matter what type of short hair design you decide to go with, just remember that short hair can be chic and sexy once you have the confidence to pull off the short cut. And don't forget that jewelry, make-up and other accessories can add more life to any short design.
