Short hairstyles have been popular for women since the 1920's. Louise Brooks's bob hairstyle in 1917 became the most popular hairstyle of the 1920's. Women of this time period threw out their corsets as they ventured out on a quest for freedom and they began cutting their hair short. Short hair became the new hairstyle for women as they entered the workforce. Short hair has long sense been a symbol of freedom and professionalism for women.
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."
