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 buzz haircut is one that has remained popular for men for decades. This cut is one short step away from being bald as it is a very close haircut. This traditionally is a cut associated with the military. There are a few different styles of the buzz cut as you can have a faded buzz cut or even a buzz cut with bangs. The Caesar cut has a straight horizontal fringe. If you need any pictures then look at Julius Caesar as this was his hair cut. Another fun and unusual hairstyle for men is the faux hawk. Unlike getting a real Mohawk the faux hawk is styled so that it looks like a Mohawk, you do not need to shave off the sides of your hair.
