So far I have been telling you all about the long hair styles and trends of Spring 2010 (see exhibits A, B and C). Today's post is dedicated to you girls who already love or want to experiment with short hair. The trend is the short black haircut. Whether it is a pixie crop or a bob with fringe or without, it should be black. I will tell you more about the pixie crop specifically because it's a great look for 2010.
Keep in mind that the pixie cut takes a lot of guts. It looks best with slightly wavy hair on an oval, square or heart-shaped face. Here are some tips for when you make your way over to your hairdresser:
- Ask for a short, soft and wispy-layered cut.
- Play with the fringe and remember to have fun with it. Although the pixie crop does not have to sport a short fringe, you can ask for a very short fringe or a longer, side-swept fringe that covers one of your brows.
- Another fun tip is to shape the hair at the nape of your neck the way you like.
