Stylists of the early 21st Century have updated the original bob of the early 20th Century with a blunt cut and fringe. This type of style is ideal for a woman with straight hair. Hair Stylists have worked their magic on the short shag turning it into a hairdo that is glamorous. The short bob is not just for women with straight hair. Curly shags that have an old_fashioned look are becoming popular because they definitely enhance a woman's femininity. Closely related to the shags with curls are romantic short cuts and that "just woke up" messy look. The messy look is appealing because it looks like the wind just blew through a woman's hair. It sends a message that she enjoys having fun and is relaxed about her appearance.
For men, short hairstyles are nothing unusual since the majority of men in this planet sport this style. These hairstyles are popular for many reasons, such as religious principles (most Christian denominations require a man to have short hair so that his head is not covered when he prays) and one's profession (e.g. athlete, military personnel, or businessman).
