Short Hair Styles Going Fresh and Sassy

Forget about growing a long mane! Short hair styles are this summer's newest trend. Wild top hair adds venturous airs to the modern style. One of the coolest advantages of the new style is its simplicity. Apply a little volumising mousse and hair spray and you got the style in a jiffy

Today, short haircuts for women are not only acceptable but also cute and endearing. Gone are the times when women with short hair stirred up a scandal. Attitudes changed after WWI as the female image kept changing. Modern ideas prevailed and women’s hair and life styles should never be the same. Coco Chanel was one of the trailblazers for the short hair fashion. She was not only legendary for introducing the still cherished little black dress but also because she actively promoted women's independence. In her fashion designs, this meant slim-fitting dresses and matching short hair styles.

Today's great designers like Lanvin, Chanel and Balmain love to match short hair styles with the outfits of their models. There was hardly a brave-looking model with orderly hair in the bunch in fall/winter shows. Hair stylists kept snipping off hair and using the razor. Most of all, they tousled hair to produce this season's hottest look, the tousled pixie with the spunky fringes. Trendsetters and increasingly also stars and celebrities around the globe say goodbye to their long hair and join the new short style. Today’s women like short and sassy hair styles. Otherwise, anything goes.
