In all of its transformations and variations, the short hair cut has always been numbered at the top of the list when it comes to versatility, style and manageability. No other style catches the eye quite like short hair and no other style makes the wearer look as professional, chic and sexy as closely cropped locks.

Short styles worn by women are a fairly new style trend when compared with women’s hair styles in general. In fact, cropped styles only came to the forefront of fashion a little more than 50 years ago. Since that time, the short hair cut has given women the freedom to express themselves in numerous ways. From the funky and spiked to the soft and feminine, the short cut can be worn by any woman of any personality, style and age.

Short hair no matter what the age

It has long been a held belief that an older woman should wear a shorter style to make her appear younger. While there is some truth in this belief, long hair tends to make wrinkles and flaws more noticeable, short cuts and long hair styles can be worn by women of all ages if they choose the right style to compliment their particular face shape and bone structure.

A good rule of thumb to follow when it comes to choosing a short cut to suit your age is to pay more attention to your overall appearance rather than focus too much on how old you are. For example: Trendy, spiked styles can emphasize flaws and sagging skin, but I have seen women in their 70s with exceptional bone structure wear these short hair styles and look amazing. On the other hand, I have also seen younger women try to wear these same styles and not be able to quite carry it off. So, if you want to wear a short cut, pay close attention to your face shape, build and style of dress before deciding how to cut your hair.
