Things to Consider When Searching For a New Hairstyle

Many of us, especially as we reach our 20s and 30s, have selected a certain hair cut or hair style that we deem attractive and manageable. When we were kids, we all went through the bangs, then the super-short mushroom cut (Mom: "If you don't take care of that hair I'm going to chop it all off") and even the perm or platinum-blonde phase. But now, as we reach mature adulthood, we've found one or two cuts and styles that work. But what if we change our minds?
There are many things to consider before making a major hair style change. Although spontaneity seems like a good idea when for the fourth day in a row we can't get our hair to do anything right and are forced to leave the house with a hat or a pony-tail, overall it's best to do some planning and consideration before chopping off those locks.
First, consider what you currently don't like about your hair cut. Is it too long? Too layered? Too top-heavy? Too dark? Too light? Too something else? Just plain awful? Whatever your situation may be, keep in mind the specific things you want to change, before you just waltz into a random salon somewhere.
Sometimes it can be helpful to browse magazines and the Internet to find other hairstyles that you like and would like to try. But keep in mind that just because it works for Katherine Heigl (and her team of hair people) doesn't mean it will work for you. It's great to have a general idea of what you want, but be sure to remain flexible because if might not work exactly the same in your hair.
If you're growing out your hair and have become fed up with the awkward-in-between-hits-your-shoulders-at-just-the-wrong-spot length, don't abandon all you work and cut everything off! Remember what happened last time you did that? Two days later you hated it and just had to start all over. Consider going in for a trim, or maybe some highlights to enhance your look without destroying all of your effort.
The most important thing to consider when switching your hair style, is finding a stylist that you like and trust. Don't let someone you've never worked with before drastically alter your look. It will not end well. Promise. Because you like and trust your stylist, take his or her word for it when he/she tells you that the hairstyle you've selected simply will not work on your hair. Listen to suggestions of how you might slightly change it to work better with your current cut or type of hair. He will know best, he is the professional afterall.
All in all, when you decide to have a drastic hairstyle change, wait awhile before you actually go through with it. This will give you time to consider what you've decided to do and make sure that you don't regret it a few days later. Look at all of your options and remain flexible to suggestions. Remember that your all-time favorite celebrity didn't wake up with that hair. She sat in a chair for hours while highly trained professionals transformed her hair into that creation. Trust your stylist and consider all of you options. You don't want to end up with a flash-back of the perm/bangs/mushroom cut days.

Short Haircuts For Women - Some Ideas to Re-Invent Your Hair

One of the major benefits to having a short hair cut is how easy it can be to maintain and take care of. Your chances of keeping the hair in better condition are far greater as shorter hairs are also younger and more vibrant than when you leave it to grow out. However, it is not only about an easier life - short hair cuts are always at the front of fashion and beauty trends and that can be seen in the many celebrities who are shedding longer locks for a more confident and voguish look.
Just this year alone we have witnessed stars such as Rihanna, Nicole Richie, Sienna Miller and Jessica Alba hitting the red carpet with glorious short hair styles. If you want to make the transition from long to short or if you just want some fresh ideas for making your short hair turn heads - this article is going to introduce you to the current styles that are taking over the world! Read on.
The Shag Haircut.
Think Brittany Murphy - this style is especially popular with younger women. The look is fresh, modern and funky and fits well to confident women - that would be all of you then! I imagine that such a cool look would give you confidence if you are otherwise lacking. What makes a shag a shag is the many different layers that are cut into the hair. You can accentuate these layers and add texture by using a little pomade or wax and teasing the hair with the fingers.
The Crop Haircut.
Victoria Beckham shocked plenty when she went for the crop. It is a big step to cut hair so short and not everyone can pull this one off. Mrs Beckham managed it though - and so can you, especially if you have thick, straight hair or Afro hair. This cut also looks better when you have prominent cheekbones and an oval face shape. The crop is at it's best when textured and messy as opposed to slick and smooth.
The Pixie Haircut.
Who other than Halle Berry would be the best example of a gorgeous pixie cut. The pixie cut is in fact a classic and even the glamorous Audrey Hepburn favored this style. Again, like the crop - it is a huge transformation if you are going from long hair to the pixie. If you are proud of your facial features - a pixie cut will bring those features forward. Slightly wavy hair, an oval, heart-shaped or square face are the best matches for this short do.
The Sedu Haircut.
Sedu hair basically means straightened hair that is sleek and soft in appearance. Katie Holmes probably uses straightening irons to make her short cut so silky. I for one envy the style of Katie Holmes which is classic, yet modern enough for the younger women. Her hair just makes me want to reach out and touch it - only I often found the computer screen got in the way. The Sedu can be flexible in that it suits most hair types. All you need is a good set of straightening irons and a little more patience if you hair is naturally curly.
That was my pick of some of the best cuts going for short hair. Don't forget that you can add bangs to most of the above styles for an even more unique look. Bangs can be short, swept to the side, wispy, choppy or even asymmetrical. Don't be afraid to try something new.
