The decision to trade in a long_layered hair style for one of the new short hairstyles should be one that any woman makes with the help of her stylist. Many women choose short hairstyles to add height...something that is especially becoming when middle_age creeps in and things begin to "sag" all over. However, rather than short hairstyles, it's often true that an updo hair style is a better way to achieve "lift" and height.
This type of haircut, however, is not appropriate for all kinds of women. They are certainly not made for those with rounder faces, because they tend to emphasize the shape. Thus, they would only look bigger. They are more ideal for girls with more pronounced chins or jawbones. Then you have spike of Victoria Beckham and Pink. It combines a lot of elements of other hairstyles. First, it's usually cropped or very short. Then the hairstylist has to layer the hair. The only difference is that the ends of the hair should never fall down but instead appear like spikes, going into different angles.
