The Pompadour _ The pompadour is brand new in the lineup of short hairstyle ideas for women. Let's say we've borrowed it from men. It is also called "faux hawk" or "quiff". Usually, the hair along the sides is shaved fine and some of it is swept upwards, away from the face and worn high, at the center of the head. This is a bold hairstyle and not everyone can carry it well. Celebrity Inspiration: Miley Cyrus
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.
