The holidays are drawing closer, which means numerous holiday and family events. For some, this may be the first time you’ve seen your family since last year’s festivities, whether that is by circumstances or by choice. You don’t want to show up looking the exact same as the year before, but now you need a quick change. So why not a haircut? There’s nothing easier than a haircut, and it will give you a whole new look. Here are some trending short hairstyles that you can take advantage of this fall.
Many short hairstyles fall into two categories: Pixie cuts and bobs. However, within these two categories there are a variety of styles and change ups that you can match to your face shape and hair type.
Pixie cuts are the very short hairstyle, think above the ears. Emma Watson started a huge trend this year after chopping off all her locks, and you can use it to your advantage. Here are some options:
- Short and spiky: If you want something a little more edgy, a short and spiky pixie cut is a good way to go. It gives you some feminine details with great texture. The best part? It’s meant to be messy! So you can use minimal products and styling time to get a look that everyone will love.
- Long pixie: While traditionally pixie cuts begin around the ears, you can do a slightly longer pixie cut with an almost bob-looking side swept bang. This will give you a sleek and sophisticated look for the holidays.
Bobs are usually near the chin, or at least begin there, and can extend to the shoulder. They are a great hairstyle for any face shape, and offer a variety of options to choose from:
- Wavy: Instead of doing a traditional straight hair bob, 2016 is introducing light waves and curls to break up the sleek lines and create a soft, fun, and flirty look for the new year.
- Shag: Creating a much softer look for those without any kind of wave to their hair, the shag uses a razor to create tapered layers, and leaves in some longer bangs to bring some flare to this face framing style.
If you’re looking for a change, try one of these many short hairstyle trends this holiday season to spice things up. Not sure of what would look best? Ask a professional at a salon such as Stan Parente Salons. They’ll make sure you get a hairstyle that best suits you.
