Short hair styles are all the rage this season, perhaps because the current fashion trends also include girls getting in touch their their masculine sides. Hair trends often mimic those found in fashion and this one is no exception. Of course, that is not the only reason short styles are so popular right now.
There are a number of reasons women and men alike are going for shorter hair. Some of them are driven by fashion and some of them are practical. The point is that although long locks will always be pretty, they are definitely being replaced by a love for shorter styles.
Right now, the looks on the runways are all about femme fatales doing it up in an androgynous way. Women are encouraged to wear fitted trousers, pinstriped suits, skinny ties, and classy fedoras. This hot new fashion trend is directly related to the current trends found in hair styles. Namely, women are beginning to prefer much shorter hair.
It does not necessarily have to be a short cropped pixie cut, but with celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes being frequently photographed with sleek, jaw length bobs, it is really no wonder why so many women are running to book an appointment under the scissors.
On the subject of short, cropped hairstyles, however, women have been wild about them for many years. Sometimes, however, a woman is not brave enough to get her hair cut this way. It can be difficult to pull off a look like this, but it looks exquisite when it can be done.
In the past, iconic women like Audrey Hepburn, whose short pixie cut in Sabrina took the audience's breath away, and Mia Farrow during her dramatic turn in Rosemary's Baby, sent women all over the world to the stylist's. These dramatic looks began a trend which is still popular today. It simply happens to be making a comeback in a big way.
As briefly mentioned, getting one's hair cut short has its practical side as well. It is notoriously easy to style a short hair cut, whether it is chin length, jaw length, or cropped close to the skull. More often than not, all you need to do is towel dry a look like this, add the tiniest bit of product, and you can be on your way.
This is possibly why short hair is so popular with working women, mothers, and especially, working moms. In the rush to get breakfast on the table, get lunches packed, get the kids off to school, and get yourself ready, you sometimes do not even have time to match your socks, let alone style your hair to perfection.
Having a short hair style can thus save quite a bit of time. And, like say, when you have the bone structure which can pull it off, then you are still going to turn heads every time you walk down the street.
By virtue of the fact that it is both stylish and convenient, short hair is quickly becoming the new black, so to speak.
