Short hairstyles, like most styles, come in and out of fashion regularly, but they usually spend more time "in" than out. Recently, a long layered hair style was at the forefront of the beauty industry, but more recently, women have once again embraced the freedom and surprising versatility of short hairstyles. If you look at a picture of short hairstyles from the 1920's, you'll see that the hair is "marcelled." This was a process by which women's hairstyle was coaxed into tight, head_hugging waves. But if you look at a picture of short hairstyles from the 60's, you'll see that the women's hairstyle of that era was straight...often rolled on giant coffee cans to achieve the right effect.
If you love the classic look of dreadlocks but you want to look clean and sharp, you can have short dreadlocks! You no longer need to have long dreadlocks in order for them to be stylish. Short dreadlocks allow the face to stay clear while looking neat and classy. The afro is a statement all its own, but you don't have to have the biggest afro in the area to have a stylish look. A short afro shows that any man is attractive yet at the same time tasteful. If the short afro is still a bit too much maintenance for you, consider getting your hair cut down as much as possible without going completely bald. You not only have the neatest hairstyle, but you also have the easiest hair to care for! Going that short may not be comfortable for some, so find a compromise and get a very simple, yet classic hair cut.
