No matter what hairstyle you choose, it is important for the hairstyle to not only fit your facial shape and skin tone, but it must fit your personality too. In spite of the fact that hair grows out, you have to be comfortable with the style from the beginning. Most of us do not have the luxury of calling our employer and saying "I'm not coming to work for the next few weeks because I don't like my new haircut." Probably more than any other hairstyle, short hair takes courage because if you don't like it, other than a wig, there is nothing you can do about it. You must be patient and wait for Mother Nature to change the length.
Another "plus" about the new short hairstyles is that they can easily be "lengthened" temporarily by the addition of weaves, braids, and hairpieces. It's easy to change your hip 2004 hairstyle into retro 80's hair style with just a few hair products...and then change back to your regular short hairstyle. To help your stylist select one of the new short hairstyles that would be best for you, be sure to bring any photo of the 2004 hairstyle that you've seen that "captures" what you'd like to achieve. And here's a word of advice: don't get stuck on any one hairstyle. Short hairstyles, medium hairstyle, and long hairstyle all have a "time and place."
