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 Pixie _ This one's a classic. Popularized around the 60s, the pixie looks as attractive as it used to be. The hair is cut really short on the sides and back and left a little longer in the front. The modern pixie cut feature bangs and layers for a more textured look. It keeps it from lying flat. The pixie looks great on woman with thick, wavy hair and square, oval and heart_shaped faces.
