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.
Casual short hairstyles are easy_going, free_flowing, and unstructured. A cute short cut is popular with women who find it difficult to manage long hairstyles. Most of the shorter cuts are designed with a minimal fuss factor in mind. Cut types include razor cuts, precision cuts, and several different layering techniques, which let the hair flow in a natural form and shape. With some well_recognized celebrities favoring short hairstyles, the shorter styles are now becoming almost a fashion norm.
