Here at The Fashionable Housewife, we have details on each Hairstyle along with how-to’s and tips to get the best look for your face shape.
This seasons hair cuts allow easy styling and are put together. Versatile hair we will see getting longer as we move into summer. No matter what your hair desire, your cut should be adapted to your individual style.
Unlike last season this season’s bob is versatile with intent. Complimenting the individual style and face shape of the women wearing it. With variations in length (layers) making it easier to style and flattering to the person wearing this beautifully classic but modern shape. Still a low maintenance/ highest fashion look. The length range is “Versatile” depending on YOU! Some of the most beautiful examples of the Modern Bob are Maggie Gyllenhall & Naomi Watts. This is a style that can be done quickly. Shampoo, apply a prep product for thermal protection, a foundation product for hold (light, medium, or strong hold), blow dry moving the hair across the head in both directions making sure to smooth the root area, light finishing product to keep the ends smooth and you are ready!
The 70’s shag comes back as “The Choppy Layer”. Always a versatile and sexy look, this cut is for texture lovers. This influence we see merged with the Bob to create the “Shaggy Bob”. Long or short bangs can be worn with this cut to compliment the face. Consistent with the texture present in this look the Bangs have a lot of texture too. Some of the best examples of this look are on Kimberly Caldwell and Kherington Payne. To style the shag shampoo, apply a prep product for thermal protection, a foundation product for medium to strong hold for best texture results, Blow-dry with hands drying the root area at scalp first. Finish by positioning the texture intentionally to compliment the overall look, spray with light to medium hold hairspray & you are ready!
Bangs are still hot! We can do swept, angled or cropped. The hottest bangs this season, are for those who want to make a BOLD statement. Shorter bangs yes shorter bangs with an angled line. Intentionally framing the face to accentuate the features for a strong look. Some of the best examples are found on Carey Mulligan and Morena Baccarin. Minimal styling needed. Shampoo, apply prep and foundation products then hand style, and you are ready!
In 2010 if you really are comfortable with yourself and you really are ready to make yourself the “It girls of the Fashionable Housewives” then get the pixie. The low maintenance hairstyle that is fashionable and bold. In combination with the angled bangs this look will keep heads turning and looking to you for advice on the up and coming trends in your circle. Working with texture creams this look will dry quickly and style easily looking fabulous this season. Some of the best examples of the pixie are Morena Baccarin, Halle Berry and Carey Mulligan.
This look is amazingly bold. Hot! Hot! Hot! Not a look that many can do, but if you are women who likes to go where no others dare, the “Half shaved” cut is for you!
This cut takes the deep part to the extreme, by shaving out the side of the head that was on the lighter side of the heavy part. Leaving the heavy side with all of that hair. The variation in length and texture is still versatile ranging from really long to short slicked back or heavy texture styles. Both of these styling options make the “Half Shaved” the boldest look of 2010. Some of the best examples are Sarah Harding and Cassie. If you are one of the women getting this look this season, I am not even going to pretend that you need help styling it. You are bold, you are Hot! You know yourself and you are one confident and Fashionable Women. Wear this one and enjoy the season.
