In 2009, the hair trends are all about the extremes. When it comes to The Bob Hairstyle, it’s the real “play-it-safe” hair-doo for 2009. It’s the only hair cut that isn’t extreme in any one direction and it’s leftover from 2008 so you have a high risk of blending in with the crowd with a bob this spring.
However, there are ways around this. If you want to keep your short hair, mix it up a bit by doing a cropped bob or a Pixie Cut. Both are low maintenance hairstyles that are totally and more interesting than a standard bob cut.
Another way to mix it up a bit is to have your stylist cut a few fringe style bangs for you. Play with texturizing sprays and waxes for added dimension.
Textured Crop: To achieve this easy-going hairstyle, ask your stylist for choppy layers. For optimal results, have your stylist use a razor for this part. This adds texture and dimension. Wash and air-dry and finish with a styling wax to enhance the layered pieces. The volume created by the short pieces on the top of your head will add height and beautiful volume. This helps balance a round face like Mandy Moore’s.
Messy Look: You can also go for a messier look like Agyness Deyn by simply shampooing, conditioning and apply mousse while hair is still wet. Then let air-dry. When dry, add a shine wax to the ends. And to get the messy look, grab hair at the crown and pull up after applying the wax. Spray lightly with a flexible hold hair spray like Aussie Opposites Attract Extra Strong + Touchable Feel Hairspray
Pixie Cut: Rub a large blob of sculpting serum or mousse in your hands and work through your hair. Continue brushing through with a one-inch ceramic round brush pulling hair forward toward the face. Let hair air-dry. Or you can blow-dry hair forward and accentuate the pieces with styling wax.
Here’s some products we recommend for short hair:
It’s like the perfect man. Strong, but with a soft side. And the best part? It won’t hog the remote. I like this mousse because it doesn’t make my hair dull and sticky. It’s light-weight but has excellent hold and feel. Great for short AND long hairstyles. Read our full review >>
Shake can well before using. For lift, spray into damp hair at the scalp and mid shaft areas. Blow dry hair away from scalp. This is the only product that gives me big volume. It’s easy to apply and it works SO WELL! I highly recommend this one for anyone that wants real volume.
This is my personal favorite. This texturizing spray work great on short to medium hair. Just shake well. Spray onto dry hair. Use fingers to tousle and lift layers. To define curls, spray onto damp hair and scrunch.
