Some women choose their hair cut based on popularity of a particular style while others choose their cut based on the ease with which their hair can be fixed each day. Others choose their hair cut on the basis of versatility or the ability to be able to fix their hair differently from day-to-day. If you enjoy fixing your hair each day and making it look differently from one day to the next, you’ll definitely want to choose a hair cut that will support many different styles with ease.
Short Hair: There are a few key things to take into consideration when you’re thinking of a cut that has maximum style versatility. Though length isn’t necessarily related to the versatility of a cut, it does help to have a little bit of hair to work with, of course. However, very short hair, if cut in the right way, can be fixed in many different ways. For example:
- Pink (the celebrity) has hair that’s extremely flexibility. She can wear it in a giant, blaring pompadour or she can slick it back and wear it down.
- Cameron Diaz is another great role model for short, but versatile style. Though her hair is pretty short, she’s even managed to pull it back into an updo in back.
Medium Length: Medium length styles are particularly flexible for people who are not necessarily of the punk persuasion. A bob is actually a fairly flexible hair style if it’s just long enough for it to be pulled back into an updo. Medium length hair can be worn down, or up, pinned back at the sides, curly or straight. It isn’t too heavy to wear up for long periods of time. Medium length hair is also easy to style each day. If you get the right cut, you’ll have lots of choices, but none of them will take very long to pull off.
Long Hair: Long hair can also be quite versatile, but the longer your hair is, the more you need to pay attention to the texture of the hair in order to find a style that will be flexible for you. If you have really curly hair, for example, it’s essential that you choose a cut that will maximize the number of different styling options that you have. Your stylist will be able to suggest different styles that will complement your hair type while affording you different choices each day.
The best way to find a style that will give you tons of flexibility for day-to-day variation is to discuss your needs with your stylist. Your stylist will be able to steer you toward the best cuts for your hair type and face shape while still taking your need for flexibility into account.
