Not all women are into long haircuts. There are quite a number of them who prefer short hairstyles because they are practical. They do not require hours of styling and a lot of maintenance. However, it does take quite an effort to maintain a fresh short haircut. Letting your shoulder-length hair grow longer may not change your look entirely. Unfortunately, if you let your short hair grow, it will ruin your hairstyle. It should be trimmed at least once every five weeks to maintain the fresh look.
This year's hottest hairstyle trend is short hair. Anyone can look good with it. Of course, it also depends on how you style it and how good your hairstylist is. The right short hairstyle will highlight your facial features and make you look younger. If you have a round face, you can opt for a layered bob cut which gives the illusion of longer face. On the other hand, if you have a long face, you can opt for a short, blunt cut or a chin-length cut to make your face look a bit rounder.
Here are some of the hottest women's hairstyles for 2011:
Bob - The bob debuted in 1920 and it is a classic hairstyle that never goes out of date. Besides the original bob hairstyle, there are two variations that you can also try: the inverted bob and the cropped bob. If you want to look like Keira Knightley, Christina Aguilera, or Rihanna, this is the perfect haircut for you.
Blunt bangs - This is suitable for women with straight hair. On the other hand, if you have naturally curly or wavy hair, you can also go for this hairstyle. However, you will have to straighten your bangs every day. Erin Fetherston, Eve, and Katie Holmes are some of numerous celebrities that have been seen sporting this striking haircut.
Pixie - This sassy haircut was popularized by the British model Twiggy in the 1960s, and it has made a comeback in late 2010. However, this style is not for everyone. It is more suitable for women with excellent bone structure and feminine facial features. The pixie cut is a favorite among actresses such as Emma Watson, Mia Wasikowska, and Michelle Williams.
Soft curl bob - This is simply a variation of the layered bob cut. You just have to add more volume to the top part of your hair, and curl the bottom half with a curling iron. This hairstyle is championed by the likes of Victoria Beckham, Selena Gomez, and Zoe Saldana.
