One way you can express your personality and style is through your hairstyle. When you need a change, a new hairstyle can freshen your entire look. With today’s hair products, you can have a short haircut one day and long locks the next. Or you can have a professional look for the day and a wild look at night. If you are not sure which hairstyle to get, find inspiration from celebrities who often favor the most popular women’s hairstyles.
Short hair is one of the main categories of hairstyles for women. From the classic bob to shag cuts, you can find a short haircut to work with the shape of your face. Short styles can give you a wild, fun-loving look, or you can choose a professional style. In 2010, short hairstyles included a trend of diagonal-forward bobs with short, stacked hair in the back, reports the Beautiful Hairstyles website. Victoria Beckham favors this hairstyle. For a softer look, consider a pixie cut, which frames your face. Celebrities like Ashley Judd, Natalie Portman and Katie Holmes have sported this style. The short length makes it easy to style your hair. For spiked hair, use a texture cream on towel-dried hair. If you want soft curls, you can apply a curl-enhancing product to your hair and scrunch.
Medium haircuts range from chin- to shoulder-length styles. They offer diversity for texture, working well with straight, curly or wavy hair. The Pro Haircut website recommends the style to add volume and movement. Celebrities who wear their hair medium-length include Kate Hudson, Charlize Theron and Carrie Underwood. You can quickly style a medium haircut by blow drying your hair upside down or by adding mousse or texture cream to towel-dried hair. While the style isn’t long enough to pull back into an updo or a ponytail, you can use decorative clips to secure your tresses.
Long hair is another popular hairstyle. You can grow your own or get hair extensions to alter the length of short hair without the wait. Long hair works well for layered looks. The texture of your hair can change the style. If you decide to grow your hair long, you will need to take steps to protect it from damage. Broken or split ends make long hair look frizzy. Celebrities with long hairstyles include Megan Fox and Gisele Bundchen. Make long hair more formal with an updo. For a casual style, pull your hair back into a bun or a ponytail.
