No matter what hairstyle you choose, it is important for the hairstyle to not only fit your facial shape and skin tone, but it must fit your personality too. In spite of the fact that hair grows out, you have to be comfortable with the style from the beginning. Most of us do not have the luxury of calling our employer and saying "I'm not coming to work for the next few weeks because I don't like my new haircut." Probably more than any other hairstyle, short hair takes courage because if you don't like it, other than a wig, there is nothing you can do about it. You must be patient and wait for Mother Nature to change the length.
Women of the 21st Century look for fashionable short hairstyles that are chic and trendy, but are also easy to manage. In today's busy world where women are famous for multi-tasking, they look for a modern hairstyle that will let them fit into the corporate world by day, but by night look sexy and fashionable while out on a date. Of course, if you are a modern, married woman who is also a mother, you want a style that can take you from work to the supermarket and back home again. The modern mom wants to look stylish with a minimal amount of time and effort.
If you are looking to update your style, choosing a short style definitely transports you into the modern fashion world. In fact, when you think about it, short hair became a symbol of the modern woman in the 1920s. Until then, young women had long tresses. A young woman who wanted to rebel against tradition, bobbed her hair. In the 21st Century, fashionable short styles look refreshing, vibrant, and young. They are easy to manage and help a woman to look meticulously groomed at all times.
Stylists of the early 21st Century have updated the original bob of the early 20th Century with a blunt cut and fringe. This type of style is ideal for a woman with straight hair. Hair Stylists have worked their magic on the short shag turning it into a hairdo that is glamorous. The short bob is not just for women with straight hair. Curly shags that have an old-fashioned look are becoming popular because they definitely enhance a woman's femininity. Closely related to the shags with curls are romantic short cuts and that "just woke up" messy look. The messy look is appealing because it looks like the wind just blew through a woman's hair. It sends a message that she enjoys having fun and is relaxed about her appearance.
Short modern haircuts help a woman make a statement about her personality. She is modern, but with style. Layering is a key signature style of short hair today. Stylists emphasize the layered look by adding darker tones to the strands underneath with lighter colored hair at the top, sides, and back. Intermingling dark tones and light tones help to create a sense of depth and make the short cut more interesting. The modern, fashionable short style plays with color, layering, and fringe cuts to create an updated version of the bob from the days of "Thoroughly Modern Millie" in the 1920s.
