Different factors play a role in determining which style would suit you best. Whether you opt for pixie, shaggy, bob, pageboy or any other short style it is important to take the texture of your hair, shape of your face and lifestyle into consideration. Knowing what type of face you have can make choosing a flattering short hairstyle much easier. By using a photo where you look straight at the camera and cutting out your face, you can quite easily determine the shape. If you are one of those lucky individuals with an oval face, you can wear anything from pixie to sleek with a center parting. Hair swept back from the face will enhance and bring out your features. Extra heavy bangs that cover your features should be avoided.
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.
