Bobs are still in style and there are many different cuts to choose from. This very trendy bob Rhianna is wearing tapers to a longer length from the nape of the neck to the chin. The deep side part and face framing jagged layers are very flattering for women who have round faces. Bobs can be worn straight wavy, with curls, with or without bangs. Asymmetrical bobs are also popular as well as severely angled bobs with thick straight fringe.
The pixie is another classic short hair style which has been popular since the early 20th Century. Originally made popular by the “flappers” of the 1920’s the pixie has gone through many evolutions since its introduction. Annette Benning’s textured pixie is one example of how you can style this classic cut. You can also wear it straight or slicked back in the trendy wet look. Pixies work best with straight or wavy hair, and it is a fun and chic look for women of all ages.
Don’t forget the impact of color. Hair color has so many options now that you can create your own look with the help of your stylist. In this picture by Goldwell Color, the rich purple adds depth and impact. Red is still the most popular color for the spring, with platinum blonde, and deep chestnut coming in second and third. Ask your stylist for suggestions for a color that will create a dramatic change and give you a whole new look.
Angles can give even a basic short cut a trendy look. This really cute cut works perfectly for straight hair. The angles give is some movement and keep it from being boring. Angled bangs soften square and triangle shaped faces. They add some asymmetrical interest and roundness to the face. Your stylist can add angles to almost any short cut.
