Create a fun, playful, yet utterly sexy and glamorous feel with the latest summer 2011 short hairstyle trends. You should never dismiss short haircuts as masculine and unfeminine. Why? Because short might be the perfect way to lighten your face and add a chic and young flair to your look. Therefore, take a glimpse at the spring/summer 2011 runway models, draw your inspiration and say goodbye to those terrible bad hair days.
We are indeed extremely nervous when it comes to having our hair
cut. Lots of questions pop up into our minds and the concern of a
very short haircut makes us abandon our bold intention. Besides,
with all the ideas saying that long hairstyles are the sexiest and
most feminine, chopping becomes a far away dream. Still, remember
that flattering short hairstyles can do wonders and
their versatility will allow you to play with styling. There are so
many inspiring short hairstyle trends for summer 2011 that look
However, chopping off long tresses and going for a drastic change might require some courage and, of course, a hairdresser's advice if you are not 100% sure that the haircut suits you. On the other hand, if you already have a fabulous short cut, this season's trends are practical, offering maximum freedom to style it. You just have to be brave and self-confident.
Absolutely lovely are the messy short hairstyles spotted at Loewe and Isabel Marant. And we must admit that the shortie - platinum blonde combination is cool and oh-so-chic. Leave some length at the front and keep it rather messy especially if your are looking for the perfect short hairstyle for round faces.
This season is all about having fun and creating statement
hairstyles. If you want something more
feminine and sweet with a practical touch, Balmain should be your

If what you want is something stunning and eye-catching, a short crop such as seen at Burberry Prorsum and Hermes might be your ticket. Still, if you are not sure on going short, have your hair cut in stages in order to avoid a drastic, a shocking effect.
Now, for every adventurous and rebellious personality, the
rock-punk approach is the answer. Funky layering and asymmetrical
cuts will instantly update your look. Try an edgy '80s-inspired cut
such as seen at Jean Paul Gaultier and play around with volume for
a serious statement. You'll feel free and sexy with this effortless
style especially if you match it with a bold makeup. You can also dare the
Givenchy look, adding a dark color that will make your cut stand
out and flawlessly capture the essence of androgynous styles.
On the contrary, if you are more into the classic vibe, a short bob hairstyle, worn in a '70s-inspired style (Fendi) or in the already famous wet effect style (Chanel) will give a glamorous, chic and feminine feeling, adding individuality and drama.
