For the summer, the creative minds at Guys & Dolls Hairforce in Denmark have given us a collection of soft, romantic hairstyles.
These styles each combine modern silhouettes and angles with soft texturing and smooth styling. The looks are all feminine, but never prissy.
Straightforward Short Hair
This bold look suits best the woman who knows her own mind. She likes things simple and straightforward. The haircut is a long wedge cut with the weighty area dropped to the ear level. The ends are layered to fall smoothly and create the soft silhouette, and the foreground features a fringe that is long and expressive in its versatility.
Shown here, the fringe is parted along the left side of the top section and styled to give the face a gentle caress as it creates the teardrop frame of the eyes. The ends are long enough to tuck behind the ears for a neater appearance (or just to keep them occupied) while you work.
Below the Shoulders Haircut
Multi-tonal blonde hair, featuring shades that range from soft wheat to buttery gold, forms the medium from which this long style is crafted. The haircut is a predominantly blunt cut to below the shoulders, while the forward edges are layered deeply for softness and texture.
Take a classic bob and give it a little length, then razor-cut the perimeter and you'll find a soft, wispy look, perfectly suited to medium and fine hair types. The horizontal fringe is also razor-textured and gives a suitable accent to the finely shaped brows.
The hair color is a soft, naturally pale brown and helps to enhance the lightness of the style. The hairstyle is simple, yet seems to have all the energy and movement needed to flatter the face.
In many cases, the super short hairstyles or pixies cuts we see women sporting are referred to as "gamine" or "boyish" depending on whether or not you are prone to using French terms in conversation.
Yet this cut isn't just a "boyish" cut, it is effectively a classic men's haircut called the Princeton or Collegiate cut. It is notable for its short and tapered back and sides and the progressively increasing length from back to front in the crown and top sections. Although the hair is cut very short, pixie cuts can look very cute and feminine!
What makes this cut different is the added texturing that is done to give a lighter feel to the style. Styling consists of a blow-out with a texturing product for fullness and to create the softened silhouette.
