Short Haircuts for Women
Women with short hair look sexy and chic. There are many short hairstyles that you can sport, from the conventional bob to the more interesting inverted bob. The type of short modern hairstyle you choose will depend a great deal upon your hair texture, age, and lifestyle.
Blunt bangs cut in a way to frame the forehead makes the short bob hairstyle look modern and edgy. This trendy short haircut is suitable for those with thick straight hair and is one of the best hairstyles for women over 50.
To get the pixie haircut, ask your stylist to cut your hair short around the ears and the back. Very short bangs that can be swept to one side gives the pixie haircut a unique appeal. This haircut is great for women with delicate features.
If you have a round and heavy set face, then a pixie cut is best avoided. Soft, graduated layers that keep the volume off the sides of your face are more suitable for round faces. Subtle layering looks great as it keeps the hair in different lengths, giving it more interest and movement.
To get this haircut, ask your stylist to keep the hair in the crown long and full, so that you can sweep it to one side and push the ends behind your ear. Subtle layering at the back gives the hair some movement and body. The hair at the side should be cut in such a way that it grazes your cheekbones, giving it a sexy look. This haircut is very popular.
It is one of the trendiest haircuts. Ask your stylist to give you a haircut that is cropped very closely at the nape of the neck with subtle three-inch layers on the crown, and wispy bangs that just graze your eyebrows and are about five inches long. Choppy hairstyles as well as chunky highlights look great with this haircut.
Short Haircuts for Men
Most men sport short haircuts, but not many are aware of the new trends in men's haircuts. If you have a head of thick hair, then a short layered haircut or a short wedge haircut is just right for you. Men with thinning hair should go for a cropped haircut.
Another popular haircut for men is the classic taper cut. In this haircut, the sides and back of the hair is cut shorter with a tapering end. The hair on the top of the head is either cut very short, or left long enough to create a side part. It can be styled with hair mousse or gel.
One of the most popular short haircuts, the texture cut is a messy haircut that is suitable for younger men. The hair is cut in subtle layers and the front is left a bit long so that you can create a side part. You can use a styling gel to create spikes in the front for a messy look. This is one of the best haircuts for thick hair.
A short haircut is very easy to maintain and is one of the main reasons why people opt for them. Very short haircuts for women and men look good only on people who have a good bone structure. These haircuts should be chosen keeping in mind a person's lifestyle and face shape.
