The business man cut is very traditional and is a short more conservative hair cut. As the name implies you look very professional. This type of hairstyle can have many variations but the basics of the cut include tapering on the sides and back with a part on one side of the head. The fade is another short men's hairstyle that has many variations. There is the flat top fade, low fade, temple fade, Brooklyn Fade and Philly fade to name but a few. This is a type of tapered cut. Generally the hair is cut very close on the back and sides and then is tapered upwards.
The decision to trade in a long_layered hair style for one of the new short hairstyles should be one that any woman makes with the help of her stylist. Many women choose short hairstyles to add height...something that is especially becoming when middle_age creeps in and things begin to "sag" all over. However, rather than short hairstyles, it's often true that an updo hair style is a better way to achieve "lift" and height.
