One of the hottest looks in fashion is short hairstyles 2016. Long, big hair used to be widely considered the standard “norm” for starlets whose public persona was based upon sex appeal. This year, however, short hairstyles are being interpreted in many ways, from chic and sophisticated to hot, sassy and sexy.
The basic groups that most short haircuts fall into evoke these interpretations:
– Sexy, sassy and edgy.
– Chic, wordly and sophisticated.
– Carefree, young and sporty.
Some of the haircuts themselves may be somewhat similar technically, but are styled differently. Knowing one’s own personal style is key when deciding upon the haircut itself.
How to dress with short hair?
One of the questions that women ask themselves when deciding to take the leap into short hair is “How to dress with short hair?” There are a few questions to ask oneself regarding fashion as it relates to short hair:
– What type of clothing already lives in my closet?
– What do I consider to be my own personal style-perhaps a list of adjectives.
– What image am I trying to project?
In other words, common sense will tell you that if you’re a “cashmere and pearls” person, a punked out, spiky, edgy look would contradict your wardrobe and your personality.
The best makeup for short hairstyles
Another issue that comes up when contemplating an extreme haircut is the best makeup for short hairstyles. As a general rule, short hair creates an opportunity to go a bit more dramatic with makeup. The reason being that since the hair style itself is not elaborate and is not the focal point, the face is a blank slate upon which more “ornamentation” can take place. Consider overall thematic style again. For example, a grunge or punk haircut offers an opportunity to rock that makeup mural you’ve always been wanting to try. With a sophisticated, forties glam look, short hair seems to go very well with a full, velvety matte red lip. A sporty casual style offers an opportunity to give some attention to those overgrown eyebrows.
Short hairstyles 2016 according to face shape
Necklace length, clothing necklines, and eyeglass choices always take into consideration the shape of the face. Your haircut is no different. So, short hairstyles 2016 according to face shape is definitely a big topic. Thinking in terms of horizontal versus vertical lines, a long face can wear a very strong horizontal line at the brow area on eyeglasses. It visually cuts the face in half, diminishing it’s length. These principals hold true with your short haircut. If your face is long, a bold chunky bang adds that needed horizontal break. Conversely, a round face may appear longer with no bangs, or perhaps just a thin fringe of vertical pieces.
All things considered, regardless of style, everyone should feel comfortable and confident in their short hair. Short hairstyles 2016 offer trend-forward ways to express confidence and attitude. Look through some magazines, social media sites, and have a conversation with your leading edge stylist. You will feel liberated as you rock that short hair!
