Ode to Short Hair (2)

Previous Page
 
Long haired ladies do not want to look like their shorter haired sisters, and short haired ladies do not want to look like their longer haired sisters and around and around it goes and never the twain shall meet. Everyone wants to be an individual and most hairstylists can relate to that and respect you for that too; as hairstylists are artists and sometimes can be a bit eccentric in their ways and tastes. An experienced stylist has your best interest at heart and can foresee exactly what would look good on you and what would not. They take your looks, personality and lifestyle into mind when they begin to give you that life changing haircut of haircuts.
 
Iím going to ask you a question, but in order to answer this question; you must be honest with yourself. Who do you know in your circle of family and friends that are your best critics? Who always tells you the truth about what you are wearing and what your hair looks like, whether you would like to hear about it or not? My guess, it is probably your children or your best friend and we really do thank them for it, donít we? I mean, sometimes we might grit our teeth a little bit while we murmur that thank you, but we do sincerely appreciate the criticism. Well, perhaps it is time to follow through with some of their advice. We do not see ourselves the way other people see us. Just because you are thinking about a new haircut doesnít mean you have to cut it all off suddenly. Go slow and get used to less length over a period of time, in that way it wonít be quite so shocking or upsetting to you while you are in the grace time of wearing your new look.
 
Alyssa Milano with long hair Alyssa Milano with short hair Speaking of short hair, Alyssa Milano ran the whole nine yards when she decided to get a haircut (2003). She once had long dark brunette hair and it was curly as well! To go from long and wavy to ultra short, to the tune of about 1 Ĺ inch of hair all over her head; completely astonishes the most liberal minded! Yet, look at this girl! She doesnít seem to be pining for her long locks, but looks rather like she is full of confidence and altogether enjoying herself. I can guarantee you, she would look good in any hat she would decide to wear on the beach. No more brushing her hair into an updo, twist or ponytail. Gone are the days of curling irons, smoothing lotions and blow driers! They are only gathering dust! Hot rollers are only a memory to our girl and she looks happy! Sheís into the shower and out and running off to her appointments. It doesnít get much easier than that. When she washes her face, she just keeps going upward. I bet she is gaining as much as two hours in her schedule everyday. For those of you, who havenít enough hours in the day to do all of the things you want to get done, this just might be the answer for you.
 
Natalie Imbruglia with short hair Another simple short haircut is the one that Natalie Imbruglia has (04/23/2007), as it is a softly rounded style that frames her pretty face and offsets her attractive eyes. The most Natalie herself does with this hairstyle is a quick blowdry and a little moisturizing spray afterwards. With this kind of style, there isnít any need to use a curling, flat iron or hot rollers. Apply your favorite gel or styling lotion and blow. I wouldnít be at all surprised if Ms. Imbruglia many times, leaves in a hurry without even blowing her hair from time to time. By the time she would arrive at her destination, her hair will be dry.
 
Sharon Stone with long hair Sharon Stone with short hair Itís hard not to picture Sharon Stone in short hair ever since Basic Instinct, however she did have long hair in Casino which was probably extensions. If you are looking for a sexy image to copy, remember this celebrity in short hair. They say that there are movie stars and there are character actors; Ms. Stone has to be a star. Stars have that something special inside of them that make every eye gaze upon them, when they walk into a room. Is it their lifestyle or personality? Could it be the clothes they wear or the signature haircut that seems to suit them so well? I am sure it is all of the above and a little bit more.
 
Letís look at her long haired picture. The style is centered into the middle and brushed straightly down. Known for her platinum, Ms. Stone has a pensive expression on her face. In the other photo, we see Sharon with her signature haircut and the tones of her skin are warmer and more alive. We can see her hair has some gold expressions bringing a radiant gloss that is not present in the other photo. Take a good look at both of these pictures and ask yourself which one has the most life in it? Which one is the most colorful? Does color effect your life? Oh, yes indeed! If you really want to be a platinum blonde, remember to be very careful not to get it white, unless you are ready for it. So, letís stand up and give a salute to our celebrity Sharon Stone and her hairstyle of hairstyles.
 
Mariska Hargitay with long hair Mariska Hargitay with short hair Looking around, we can see Mariska Hargitay wearing her hair in a short flipped style with slices of brown, dark blonde and caramel; combed back on one side and fastened with a decorative hair ornament. There is a high side part and all the hair has straight lines. Use plenty of smoothing lotion and paste to achieve this disciplined hairstyle. Next we pay attention to the sunfilled long locks of Ms. Hargitay that fall just below her shoulders into a more serious look. Her bangs are shorter with a beachcomb look that brings a carefree attraction to her photo.
 
If I could change a few things about our celebrity, I would put the long haired color on her short hair and also the bangs she has in the long photo. When we get a short haircut, it should lift us up in everyway. For some, there is a mini-facelift when this happens as they watch their sides go up instead of the usual down hang from the long hair on the sides. This is of the utmost importance, if a lady has a little bit of age on her.
 
Does it seem to you, that long hair brings a more serious approach to those who are the wearers, and short hair a more carefree upbeat look? If this is true, why do you suppose is the reason? Our inquiring minds may never know the reason for this trivia, but there is one thing we can do for ourselves. We can choose to learn about ourselves and do what we can; to continue to look our very best. It will be a continue challenge, sometimes a fight and even tears as we accept the truth that change will bring. Each time we accept the changes in our lives, we will discover how it brings us that much closer to a new you and a breathtaking image, you will have not otherwise had and that will bring you to a higher level of confidence and self-esteem.
