Short hairstyles are super easy to care for, chic and modern. They are ideal for busy women because they require much less drying and styling time than longer hair. Short hair styles are also very flattering on women with striking appearances because they make facial features stand out. Short hairstyles even add to the visual perception of height, making them exceptionally well-suited for petite women who wish to appear taller.
How can you tell if a short hairstyle is right for you?
First of all, you need to be willing to trade low maintenance on a daily basis for higher maintenance in terms of haircuts. Short hair needs to be cut more frequently to maintain its shape. If you are thinking of switching to short hair but are used to 8-12 weeks between salon visits, be warned that your new short hairstyle may require cuts as frequently as every four weeks.
Second, take your size into consideration. While short hairstyles look wonderful on petite women, they can look disproportionate on taller or heavier women. Age can also make a difference; certain short haircuts such as the gamine give a very girlish appearance, so if you’re a much more mature woman, make sure you choose a mature version of a short haircut!
Finally, make sure you don’t have a facial feature that bugs you that you are trying to camouflage. If you have a large nose and a jutting chin, for example, and you a’re hoping to use your hairstyle to draw attention away from them, stay away from short hairstyles as they are likely to make those features appear even more prominent.
