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.
The Bob _ Compared to the pixie and pompadour, the bob is a longer in length. It hits at the jaw line with some going lower grazing the chin. There are different variants of the bob. Textured bob _ The layers keep it from looking boring by adding volume. A fringe or choppy side bangs add more edge to the look. Women with thick and curly hair should avoid the bob as it tends to pouf up. Emma Stone wears the textured bob with oomph. Demi_bob _ It gets its name from its longer length. It hits below the mid_neck but slightly above the shoulders. The Demi_bob looks flatters a round face as it elongates it. It is the option to go for if you have wavy hair as the layers fall well. You can seek inspiration from Gwyneth Paltrow's Demi_bob.
