Short hairstyles will never go out of date as long as people still value simplicity and versatility. When sporting a short hair, a woman will not be burdened with complicated hair maintenance. If you are a highly active woman and have many other things to think about besides maintaining your hair, it can't be argued that short hairstyles are perfect for you.
In 2011, the most popular short hairstyles for women are the bob and the pixie cut. Many celebrities have been seen sporting the two short hairstyles and gained positive reaction from both fans and fashion experts. With the right facial textures and cheekbones, bob and pixie haircuts can compliment women's appearance without making them look boyish.
However, the cropped pixie hairstyle is not suitable for everyone. It is most suitable for those with prominent cheekbones and short face. That way, the haircut will compliment the wearer's look instead of making her look boyish. However, if you have the right facial features and the guts to try it, a layered and asymmetrical pixie cut should look good on you. Consult with your hairdresser before deciding to try this hairstyle.
On the other hand, if you want a longer-than-pixie short haircut, you can opt for the bob hairstyle. Adding layers to your hair will also make you look chic. For a more daring look, choose tousled and messy appearance for your bob haircut. However, if you prefer a sleeker style, a straightening iron and some styling products are the must have instruments for a perfect straight bob.
Although we have not reach 2012 yet, we can predict that the short hair trends of 2011 will still be 'in' next year. While the bob and the pixie are classic hairstyles that will never go out of date, there are still more options for you who are brave enough to wear your hair short.
2012 will still maintain longer crops and side swept bangs to accompany the short styles. For a bolder look, the more extreme cut such as punk-inspired style is predicted to exist.
Instead of plain colored hair, it seems that 2012 is the year of colors. More highlights will be given for more definitive short hairstyle. Besides that, women are also encouraged for dyeing their hair for a fancier touch. For a more festive touch, feather hair extensions which have become a trend in 2011 can still occur in 2012 for adorning and defining short hairstyles.
