Breaking the volume of the face is an important aspect and all it requires is to break the volume of the hair or to make it appear as if the volume is broken. If the decision is to keep the hair real short, then the best option to go for the pixie cut. A pixie cut will keep the hair short and intact in volume and will also give a spiky and wet look to the hair, leaving it sexy. Such types of hair are easy to maintain and have also been tried by many of the super models and actresses.
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.
