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.
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.
