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.
And, Of Course _ Kate Blanchett! _ Cate Blanchett is very well known for her wide variety of hairstyles, many of which have been short and sexy styles that can be easily duplicated. Although her classic long blonde hair can look beautiful for almost any occasion, her short styles can make her look sophisticated and like a classic beauty. One of her favorite looks was when her hair was cut just below her ears, especially since she had many different options for various hairstyles. At the premier of her movie "Babel", Blanchett chose to wear her hair pulled back into a small bun with tight waves flowing over the side. The style was amazing, and was very simple to achieve. She also wore the same cut in chunky and straight layers, which can easily be done with a little hair wax or spray gel. Short hairstyles have given Blanchett, as well as many other actresses, the ability to wear their hair in a number of different styles without having to do much work.
