Sexy Short Hair – The New Symbol of Sensuality and Femininity
Short hair can be sexy, very sexy. A short crop with chunky layers randomly scattered, framed by softer feathers, can emphasize a woman’s personality and femininity. Sexy short hair also has an uncanny ability to
make a woman look much younger. Although long hair, for many years, has been considered the embodiment of female beauty and femininity, it is worthwhile to remember that long and luscious locks framing stunning
faces and ‘to die for’ bodies are a rare commodity, existing mostly in the movies and on the catwalk. In reality long hair is often limp, lank and well past its sell by date. Cutting dull and lifeless long locks
can spring hair back to its youth and in doing so also chops years off a woman’s age. Daring to don a sexy new hair style reflects confidence, self assurance and an upbeat attitude. Although like all hair styles,
the right style needs to be on the right person and short hair cuts are no exception. Below is some advice on how to make the most of a short hair cut so you are brimming with confidence, vitality, youth and above all sex appeal.
How to make a short hair cut look sexy
Of course there are no rules when it comes to hair and how you decide to cut and style it. Although as short hair can have the tendency to look ‘boring’, there are certain ‘guidelines’ to what makes a short style
look ‘sexy’. Hairdressing genius and style guru, George Northwood at Daniel Hersheson in London, is a big fan of short hair, but admits that the cut needs to be the right one for the individual in order to be
‘carried off’. According to Northwood, “It’s all about getting the right cut. At the moment it feels right to have the weight on top, and tapered in at the neck. You can go for something soft, like Kimberley
Stewart, or more structured; but whatever you choose needs to look cool, current and to suit you.” Hair that is one length can often look bland when it is cut short; avoid blunt lines as they will not give
short hair any texture or definition. Incorporating lots of soft, tussled layers into the hair will provide for a young, modern, sexy new look. Short bobs, with or without a fringe can create an alluring,
sexy effect, whilst enhancing and highlighting facial features. Short hair cut elegantly promotes a chic, business-like air of dignity and confidence, and when worn in conjunction with a smart suit, does
wonders in narrowing the divide between men and women in the workforce. For the less daring newcomers to short hair, an unkempt, choppy jaw length crop is ideal for weaning away from lifeless locks and
replacing them with pure glamour and sex appeal. Whilst the other extreme is a daring, boyish crop, which is arguably the cutest and sexiest short hair style of the lot. The sheer shortness really accentuates
features and provides for a real ‘kick-ass’ attitude.
Why men love women with sexy short hair
Creeping into the 21st century, the days of sexuality and sex appeal being synonymous with long hair are definitely being challenged. Think of women in films who have roused men into a state of obsession,
many of them are the product of hours of patient coiffeurring to sculpture the ultimate sexy short hair cut. Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction, Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally, and Mia Farrow in Rosemary Baby,
whose short bob crafted by Vidal Sassoon on set, has been cited as the most ‘famous haircut in the history of haircuts’ and has caused men to buckle at the knees and women to curl over with envy. Why? Because
short hair shouts out a carefree and easy going attitude combined with a dangerously dominating veneer. The way a sexy short hair cut accentuates beautiful eyes and lips leaves men very capable of not only
fantasizing about a woman with short hair, but also falling in love with her. Men also like the nape of a woman’s neck. The fact
that short hair exposes this highly sensual and sexy part of a woman’s body indisputably encourages a man to find women with short hair attractive and sexy.
How to maintain a short haircut to optimize its sensuality
Contrary to the popular view that short hair does not require much maintenance, to ensure for optimal sexiness, there are several essential steps needed to be carried out regularly. Short hair needs to be
washed even more frequently than long hair as it cannot hide natural scalp oils as well as long hair does. Shampooing short hair as often as every day or at the very least every other day, will guarantee
short hair is kept sexy. Only use conditioner on short hair if it is very dry, and even then only use a small amount. Sexy short hair relies on volume and textile, plying it with conditioner will only hamper
its spring and vitality. In order to maintain the shape of the style, make sure to get the hair trimmed every 4 to 6 weeks. One of the best attributes of short hair is the ability to experiment with color.
Often it is a case of the bolder the better when making a short cut sexy. Short crops can handle the dramatic bright reds, rich chocolate browns, and stout blonde highlights, that many long locks would be
deemed to ridicule. Experiment with color, you have the facility to do so.
Add volume and texture by experimenting with different styling products. Whilst long hair can become too heavy, drab and ‘snowed
under’ by styling products, used on short hair products such as waxes, pastes and volumizers will sprit some glitz and will ensure for sexy short hair. There is no need to spend hours in front of the hair
dryer when your locks are cut short, as short hair and lengthy periods under the blow dryer spells disaster. Fuzzy, heat damaged hair can look terrible on short hair, a far cry from glamorous and sexy. It is
advisable to blow dry short hair until it is almost dry than give it some tussle, ruffle and shine with products and shine spray. Having short hair can also bring a new dimension to wearing hair accessories,
as wearing decorations such as wraps, barrettes and headbands works wonders in the pursuit for sexy short hair.
Former comic and therapist Pamela Stephenson, stimulated discussion by publicly suggesting that women who had their hair cut short were deliberately impairing a desire to be seen as desirable. The comment
predictably triggered outrage with short haired women being more than a little peeved that they were being accused as being ‘asexual’ and unattractive. Opposing Stephenson’s arguably old-fashioned and
conservative views, are not only the millions of women who are increasingly braving the hairdresser’s scissors and going for the chop and who do not consider their choice of hair length as deliberately
sabotaging their sexuality, but also the millions of men who regard women with short hair as extremely desirable and sexy. Short hair can be intensely sexy, but not sexy in the submissive, coy,
‘girl-next-door-look’, that long hair usually denotes, but in a more dominant, powerful and commanding way.
