Trendy short hair with side bangs frames and softens women’s faces in the best way. The cut has quite a few variations, ranging from ear-length pixies to neck-grazing bobs.
Jason Jamiel, a hairstylist from Las Vegas, NV, shares his viewpoint on short cuts. “It’s an edgy, bold, and stylish cut that needs minimal styling time and effort,” he says. “It will make you stand out in a crowd of thousands, so embrace it with confidence!”
The idea of having short hair is to have fun and let go. Jamiel explains further that you’re all set with blow-drying and applying a little wax. “Women with waves or curls can enjoy a natural beachy style. Plus, a smoothing iron helps make a textured effect last longer,” Jamiel notes.
When it comes to drawbacks, hair length is at the top of the list. When your hair is short, there is a limited repertoire of styles you can create from it. Jamiel suggests changing hair hues if you are in a rut with your short haircut.
He emphasizes how imperative it is to keep the feminine flair of the tresses. “Don’t cut the hair aggressively too short, so it still has room to develop. This approach hinders creating a masculine feel that women don’t prefer,” he explains.
Details like these must be common to your stylist. Ask them if they’re an expert in cutting short hair and bangs. Get advice on whether your preferred chop works well with your hair texture.
