Modern hair styles are sexy, look low maintenance whether they are or not, and most importantly, offer movement. Any hairstyle where the hair is plastered into place with tons of hairspray, also known as helmet hair, is not modern. Short, medium or long hairstyles can all be modern, as long as the criteria of ease and movement have been met.
Various Modern Hair Styles Ideas for your Hair
Short modern hairstyles include bobs, layered spiky looks, and pixie haircuts. All of these can be sexy because they draw attention to the features and leave the neck and ears exposed. The most modern bobs right now include stacked bobs and asymmetrical cuts. If going for a layered spiky look, be careful not to overuse gel, which cuts down on the movement of the hair.
Medium modern hair styles that are currently popular include longer bobs and layered shags. Longer bobs on straight hair are sleeker and need shine product to look their best, while longer bobs on curly or wavy hair can look messy in a stylish, modern way. Layered shags can be styled to look messy or sleek, but once again, avoid overuse of styling products or movement will be inhibited.
Long modern hairstyles offer more variations than any other length of hair. Stick-straight, smooth hair is one modern look, but long loose waves are also currently popular. In fact, bouffants are in style again thanks to Amy Winehouse, but the look must be messy to look modern, as if you would had your hair done in the salon several days ago and slept in it.
