Ask any women how they felt when they made the big decision to cut their hair. So many said it felt liberating.
It often takes a long time to come to the big decision because it’s sometimes assumed that short hair limits the styling options. Wrong! Check out the variety of short styles that are flattering.
Hair with little or no curl: Have straight, long bangs that cover the eyebrow.
Hair with curl: Graduated layers give lift and volume.
Baby-fine hair: Layer it. Add both highlights and lowlights. Finish with a volumizing spray.
Product aids: Use only the products that meet your specific need: products to get volume, to get shine, to get control. Then stop. Don’t keep adding product; hair loses body and shine.
Sophistication reigns: Go straight with hair pulled behind one ear and falling forward over the other ear.
Daring do: Use spray on the sides and slick side hair severely back. Then lift the top. New and saucy.
Bangs are game changers: Long or short. Straight or swept to one side. Layered a lot or not at all. To create drama, to introduce softness, to appear to change the shape of your face, a fringe can give you so much flexibility.
The shape of your face is your style guide:
