Wearing short hair is a good thing because you don't need to have high maintenance when it comes to styling. When it comes to maintaining your hair daily, you'll only need a few minutes on styling. However, if you want to maintain it short, you need to keep it trimmed every month. You can just put some mousse on, style it in any way you want and you can already have that sexy look you wanted.
Another "plus" about the new short hairstyles is that they can easily be "lengthened" temporarily by the addition of weaves, braids, and hairpieces. It's easy to change your hip 2004 hairstyle into retro 80's hair style with just a few hair products...and then change back to your regular short hairstyle. To help your stylist select one of the new short hairstyles that would be best for you, be sure to bring any photo of the 2004 hairstyle that you've seen that "captures" what you'd like to achieve. And here's a word of advice: don't get stuck on any one hairstyle. Short hairstyles, medium hairstyle, and long hairstyle all have a "time and place."
