For women, short hairstyles of today are far more popular than they
were in years past. As a result there are a myriad of short hairstyles
you can get today. Some are simple. Some are complex. Some are formal
and some are informal. Overall, there are many short hairstyles for
you to choose from. And, before you choose that short hairstyle, it
is important to remember a few things. It is just hair. It will grow
back, dye will fade, and the only thing it is really doing is changing
your hair. This is not some earth shattering event that is going to
change your life. It is highly unlikely that a new hairstyle will
get you a new job or land you that perfect date. The secret behind
a great hairstyle is that it makes you feel great. Of course, there
are some changes to consider. Not all hairstyles go with all wardrobes,
so you might be looking at a bigger investment than just a haircut.
Short hairstyles are fun and sleek. They give a youthful and vibrant
look. You can wear a short hairstyle with a formal dress or a casual
set of day clothes. Since there is less hair, there is typically
less styling time, which means more time for the fun stuff. If you
want to keep that short and sassy look for long, however, you are
most likely going to be looking at more frequent trips to the beauty
salon. For most, that is not convenient or affordable. So, a short
hairstyle might be only temporary for you, something you do for
summer or for a special event. During the time it takes to grow
out, you might find yourself going through some awkward hair days.
So, before making the plunge to go with any of the variety of short
hairstyles you can choose from, be sure it really is what you want.
Look through the magazines. Visit websites. Consult with a stylist.

Some basic short hairstyles include the bob. This is a typical
haircut that looks good with straight or wavy hair, although it
looks best with straight hair. The hair is cut at a mostly level
length, and gently frames the face, its length coming down to around
chin level. Some variations include cutting the hair higher in the
back, but this is one style you do not want to grow out too much
before visiting a stylist—the longer lengths on the sides
and back tend to have an unflattering appearance at longer levels.
The pixie cut is cut short and close to the head. There is a razored
version that cuts sharp edges into the sides, and it looks great
for women with sharp and delicate features. Tethering is a short
hairstyle where the hair around the back and most of the sides is
cut above the ear. On the sides just in front of either ear, the
hair is kept longer, typically about chin length. In some cases,
a variation of this short hairstyle might close crop the hair around
the back and sides with clippers. Young and modern, this hairstyle
is known more for artistic and party crowds and has not found its
way into the mainstream office yet.
