Tips for Haircuts
  • As far as the cuts for 2012 are concerned, know this: this year, it's all about volume. So, when you go to your hairdresser, ask him to do something to your hair that will give it said volume. If you already have naturally thick hair, then all you need is a cute haircut to further accentuate it.
  • The best way to go this year is hairstyles with bangs and layers. If you thought that bangs were hot last year, this year they're sizzling! That's right. If you're planning on cutting your hair, then ask the hairdresser to throw in a few bangs. Keep them well maintained with regular trimming.
  • Another cut that's really popular is the bob. Whether it's a regular bob or an inverted bob, this one's a definite show stopper. So, get your hair cut into a fashionable bob and rule your local fashion circuit.
  • Choppy haircuts are the next big thing for medium hair. Get some gorgeous choppy layers and flaunt them with a messy, out-of-bed look.
  • If you're thinking naughty yet nice, then you can have a few of your strands streaked.
  • For a casual occasion, just blow dry your bangs and leave the rest as it is, if you have wavy hair. If it's straight hair that you have, then use bright colored clips to fasten some portions of your hair in such a way that it looks carefully, casually styled.
Well then, if you're ready to try these hairstyles, then you know you're ready for a major transformation. Have fun!
