Spring has sprung and everywhere you look are women, including your favorite celebrities, who are opting for shorter, cropped cuts. If you’re on the fence about chopping, Hier and Haines stylists are ready to show you how this season’s trendy upgrades to traditional favorites may be just right for you.
Not all short haircut styles complement all people.
The most important thing to know is that the best style for you is one that compliments your face shape, body type and life style. A good stylist (like those at Hier and Haines salon, McLean VA) will make sure that the short hairstyle you take home is just right for your own features. So, the first step in getting the right cut should be a conversation with your stylist.
The bob that is more than just a bob.
The traditional blunt cut bob is already quite versatile – blow-dry straight, air-dry and crunch into casual waves – but this year’s bob styles take it to a new level. The A-line or graduated bob (back shorter than front) is youthful and edgy. Consider the asymmetrical (longer on one side) cut for a dramatic sweep to the side or an uneven choppy cut for a casual messy look. If your hair is curly, a textured or layered bob gives it movement and softness. And bangs can be cut straight or asymmetrical and styled to look wispy or slick, depending on the look you want.
The pixie has a version for everyone.
This is the season for pixie cuts. It seems that there is a version of the short hairstyle to flatter every hair type and face shape. The short traditional pixie is facing competition with some new models. Pixie’s with long bangs allow for deep side parts and the drama of asymmetry, or can be slicked back for a wet, shiny look. The long cut pixie can support the dark to light fading effect of ombre hair coloring. For those with curly hair, a shaggy pixie cut a bit longer than the classic style will highlight your natural texture.
