Short hair is the second biggest trend for Fall/Winter 2008 2009. Unlike the long straight hair and wavy/curly hair trends, this will last into the winter, and maybe even spring 2009! It’s a lot maintenance hairstyle and totally chic!
This is the trend I chose when going to get my hair cut last week. The debut picture of my haircut is in the collage above. Can you spot which one is me? hehe
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 (and mine!).
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 pieciness 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 >>
What: Sexy Hair Concepts Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Spray Mousse
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.
What: Pantene Pro-V Texturize! Spray Wax
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.
