A short crop is the ultimate attention grabber. Besides, it is so versatile, allowing you to try a myriad of different voguish looks. From disheveled feels and natural textures to wild punk and glam evening styles, a short hairstyle can go from day to night in an instant. And the latest fall 2011 runway hairstyles can give you a hint on how to give your shortie a seasonal update.
The best thing about short hair is that it can be styled so easily with the minimum amount of effort. Always keep in mind that short haircuts look best on oval faces. If your face is fuller, add a little volume on top in order to elongate the shape. You can try the tomboy style as seen at Chanel, Cacharel, Issey Miyake, or Max Mara that can perfectly enhance the beauty of your cute, small features. The braver ones can opt for something edgier (Narciso Rodriguez) or jazz up their crop for a special night out (Kenzo).
A punked-up short style looks so edgy and feminine. D&G, Anna Sui, N21, and Lanvin showed us how a simple short crop can become a wow-worthy, high-drama element into your overall appearance. If you want to experiment and have fun while styling your hair, you should keep some longer layers at the front. You’ll undoubtedly make a statement! Invest in the right products such as wax for root lift, serum for the ends, and shine spray for a polished finish. At G Star and Giambattista Valli models were spotted wearing the boyish, rock-inspired style, backcombed and with plenty of attitude.
Sleek hair is great and works amazing on elegant, smart looks. A sleek short hairstyle will transform your look from day to night, and will add chicness and sophistication. It is so modern and luxurious! The wet effect was spotted at Acne, Max Azria, Oscar de la Renta, and Hermes. Surprisingly or not, this amazing effect brings glam to super-short hair too (Anna Sui, Derek Lam). You can wear it with or without parting and still look uber-stylish.
A short cut with longer layers can go from tousled to sleek and from smooth to rock in no time. Isn’t that just lovely? The same thing can be applied when it comes to short bob hairstyles as well. If you need something cool, classy and effortlessly chic, an easy-wear trend is the right ticket (House of Holland, Balmain, Michael Kors, Isabel Marant). Keep your hair texture natural and let your crop do the talking. For a special event, don’t be afraid to add an accessory such as a pretty headband (Fendi).
