Hair off the Collar

You will read it in army hair regulations: "Hair off the collar and of the ears." Not this time. We are not in the army now and not talking about hairstyles for men. We are on a hair fashion website and talking about hairdos for women. So, why the "strict" off the collar statement? Well, simply because off the collar haircuts can be very cute, attractive, trendy and sexy. It's tidy as well of course and very comfortable.
One of the most attractive features of a button front shirt or blouse is the collar. It's a shame to see how it is so often hidden behind long strains of hair. Some buy a gorgeous fashion shirt with a nice print at the back... and then hide the print behind waist length hair.
If you don't want to cut your hair short, then an up style or a ponytail would be an excellent solution to keep your long hair and expose the print on the back of your shirt at the same time. The buttons of your blouse and long hair don't always go together very well. Did it ever happen to you that some strains of your long hair hooked behind one of the buttons? Not very pretty to look at!

Off the collar haircuts don't always need to be very short. Just off the collar is attractive too. Do you recall the look of Tea Leoni in Deep Impact? She wore casual button front shirts, a necklace and a skirt throughout almost the entire movie. She looked stunning and that was not only because of her clothes, but mainly because of her just off the collar bob. The ends of her hair were constantly flirting with the collar of her shirt.
Are you ready to sport the off the collar look? Is this a good idea for your next visit to the hair stylist? Leave your turtleneck in the wardrobe, button up that beautiful blouse, go to the hair salon and say the magical phrase: "Off the collar please." You will love your short hairstyle and enjoy "doing things" with the collar of your blouse. Turn the collar of your blouse up for more style or put it a bit backwards to show off your beautiful neck. It is a really cute look and refreshing for your neck at the same time.
How about a polo shirt instead of a casual T-shirt this Summer? Enjoy the comfort of a T-shirt, but also the beauty of the row of buttons and the collar that you can do so many things with.
