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.
Short modern haircuts help a woman make a statement about her personality. She is modern, but with style. Layering is a key signature style of short hair today. Stylists emphasize the layered look by adding darker tones to the strands underneath with lighter colored hair at the top, sides, and back. Intermingling dark tones and light tones help to create a sense of depth and make the short cut more interesting. The modern, fashionable short style plays with color, layering, and fringe cuts to create an updated version of the bob from the days of "Thoroughly Modern Millie" in the 1920s.
