Short Hairstyles - Are you going short?

As the editor of Hair Resources, I review keyword reports for many different sites.  One of the most popular keywords on a few sites is 'short hairstyles'  Everyone is searching for short hairstyle recently.  Does this mean that a lot of women are planning to go short?

There are many short hairstyles today that look very modern and edgy.  They have the ease of style with the classy look. Take for example, Katie Holmes- see photo left.  Katie is constantly changing the shape and form of her short hairstyle.  This style features hair ending a few inches below the chin with lots of choppy layers added throughout.    The bangs are cut somewhat choppy and end at the eyebrows.  She is sticking with the dark brown hairstyle that works well with her coloring and facial features.  See Katie Holmes Hairstyles

Many women would love to have this type of short hairstyle, but are a little skeptical of how it would actually look on them.  A great way to try out a short hairstyle, without actually gettin gyour hair cut, is to use online virtual hairstyling software.  This software allows you to upload your own photo and try the hairstyle on your own photo.  You can see exactly what you will look like.  It's a great option if you are on the fence about a certain style.  If you see how it looks and you like the look, you can schedule your haircut appointment and remain calm.  See more great celebrity hairstyles.

What Hairstyles do you Like the Most?

It seems like every time I go to get my hair cut, I end up with pretty much the same cut, give or take a few inches or layers. I don't stray too far off the path when it comes to hairstyles.

Yet, my favorite hairstyles are not anything like the one that I always have. I absolutely love the long flowing hairstyles that look effortless. They are very soft and feminine-looking and the hair always appears so healthy and shiny from good conditioning treatments.Here are a few examples of my favorite looks.

In the end your hairstyle can greatly affect the way your overall look is received.  Pick the wrong hairstyle and your look could suffer.  Sometimes it is a good idea to experiment with creating different hairstyles so that when the time co

mes you have several hairstyle options that you already know how to create on your own.

There are many hairstyle options that are fairly easy to create on your own.  Take for example the styles shown below.

This partial updo hairstyle is easy to create on your own.  First applya  styling/straightening balm or lotion to damp hair.  Blow dry the hair using a large round brush to shape and pull the hair down smooth.

Next part the hair deep on one side of the head and gently pull back a small section of the hair in the crown area.  Secure the hair with a low ponytail.

For extra smoothness, run a flat iron over the hair from roots to the ends.  Spray the hair with a shine serum  to get a glossy look.

This is a great hairstyle to practice for any formal occasion.  It should not take very long to create and it usually stays in place for an evening of activities.
