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.
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.
