Short hair is a perfect solution for warmer weather. It is a no-frill, no-fuss, low-maintenance hairstyle that is ideal for summer. Often, you can get away with just washing it and letting it air-dry without any need for further styling. Scan the pages of celebrity magazines to find out which celebrities have short hairstyles and see if you can manage to pull it off as they do.
Halle Berry is not only one of Hollywood’s best actresses; she is also one of its most beautiful faces. She possesses a combination of oval- and heart-shaped facial features, which show off her beautiful, stunning eyes and luscious, kissable lips. Her well-defined cheekbones and a slightly pointed chin make a pixie cut an ideal hairstyle for her. Through the years, Halle Berry’s hair changed from short to long, wavy to straight; however, her fans favor her short pixie cut.
During the 2010 Golden Globes, Halle wore an ultra-short and sassy pixie cut that hugs her head beautifully along the sides. A pixie cut, somewhat a boyish cut, has both ears exposed with the top part longer and styled in soft spikes. Halle’s medium-textured hair’s natural curl and wave made her pixie cut sassy. Adding to that are interior and perimeter layers, giving her pixie cut more depth. During formal events, Halle styles her pixie cut with styling gel and medium hairspray for hold; however, whenever she is not in the limelight, she wears a baseball cap or scarf over her pixie.
A beautiful face with an innocent, sweet look, Katie Holmes did not only win the heart of one of Hollywood’s hunks, she also won the admiration of many women. Her sort-of Cinderella story has made many hopeless romantics breathless as they watched her become Mrs. Tom Cruise. When she was on the set of “Dawson’s Creek,” Katie sported long hair; however, since giving birth to Suri, she has switched to different variations of short hairstyles. One of her favorites is the short bob cut, which frames her oval face well.
Katie styles her bob in many different ways–whether with or without bangs, straight or curly. Her short bob cut has a natural bounce and a little bit of wave that flips away from her face. There were times that she would tuck her hair behind her ears to show off her earrings. Katie’s hair top angles on her forehead and falls over to one side and halfway over her face. A dab of mousse and light-hold hairspray will do the trick in styling a short bob cut.
Rihanna may have been singing the tune from her hit song “Umbrella” when she decided to get a short, rounded hairstyle. Shaped like a small umbrella or bowl, the short rounded hairstyle is a haircut styled from the crown with strands of hair pulled forward and down to create rounded bangs. This style works well on Rihanna, who has a forehead that is almost as wide as wide as her cheeks.
The short, rounded hairstyle is just one of the many variations of short hairstyles that Rihanna dons day-in and day-out. When it comes to hairstyles, Rihanna is not afraid to try something new. In the past, she wore a short clip with a tight, high taper with a longer crown and top. She also experiments on hair color, dyeing her hair from brown, red and blond or in two tones. Rihanna uses hairstyling gel or cream after blow-drying, and then applies a medium-hold hairspray to keep her rounded short haircut tamed.
