What one person perceives as ‘short’ varies greatly with another person. Our breakdown is as follows:
- VERY SHORT: The weight line of the hair is at or above the ear line.
- SHORT: The cut line is between the ear and the jaw line.
- MEDIUM: The weight line is between the jaw and the shoulder.
- LONG: Below the shoulder.
- FUNKY: All sizes, shapes and lengths, ranging from the chic to the crazy.
If you think you would like a ‘short’ style’, you should bracket and also look at all of the ‘very short’ and ‘medium’ styles as the differences are at times slight.
Ignore the age, race, size and hair color of the model. Most styles will fit any age group and hair color is an easy adjustment. Don’t let these be a tool to narrow your list of potential styles or cuts.
The mathematical rules for selecting a style to match your face are complicated. Some easy rules of thumb are these:
- WEIGHT OR CUT LINE:
At some point most cuts have a sharp line or accent line. Be sure this line is at your best feature as the viewers eye will naturally focus on that spot. Make doubly sure that line or accent doesn’t point to your worst feature. If your nose is somewhat generous, you don’t want people focused on it.
Many women wear long hair because their significant other demands it, or because the female is insecure and hides behind her hair. Both of these reasons suck. You should wear the hair style ‘best’ suited to you, and as long as you are hiding behind your hair, your confidence level can’t increase and will therefor affect your earnings and success in life.
Far too many women wear long hair far too late in life. It makes them look older, not younger. Most women finally hack their hair off the same day they file for divorce. Interesting side note don’t you think.
Long hair is fine and can even look beautiful, just make sure you keep it long for the right reasons and that it makes you look great.
- COLOR and CURL:
If you are a brunette and want to have platinum hair, you might as well forget it. It most cases it can’t be done, and in the few cases where it can be bleached often enough over the course of several days, your hair is shot and will soon be gone.
Color should be compatible with your skin tone, and accent your eyes. If there is a red tint to your skin, red hair will not be flattering and does not work well with brown eyes either.
Stick within your race. Blonde hair on a black or asian woman looks as dumb as corn rows on a pasty white girl. Celebrate your cultural difference, its much sexier.
Surrender to the natural laws of chemistry and biology. Some hair types just will not curl no matter how often it is permed and some curl is likely to remain no matter how many relaxers are put on. Live within these limits or you will cause yourself much grief.
- CELEBS, MODELS AND MAINTENANCE:
ALL HAIR requires some degree of maintenance and some require more than others. Make sure your hair style fits your life style. A Meg Ryan cut only looks good on Meg Ryan and even if your stylist has the talent to give you the same cut, you are still not going to look like Meg Ryan, in fact, you may look downright silly with the same cut. Be yourself, and getting the cut that looks best on you, will make you MUCH more attractive than some celeb knock off.
If you absolutely must have the celeb cut, here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. Remember which movie. There are many Meg Ryan hair cuts over the years and if you and your stylist are not on the same page it is not going to be the most rewarding experience of your life.
2. What you saw Meg Ryan wearing in the movie is backed with an army of the most talented stylists in the world that are touching her hair up EVERY FEW MINUTES. Trust me, I have worked on these sets. Unless you can command the same level of attention for your hair, it is not going to work.
3. The same goes for hair styles on models. When you see them off location you will hardly recognize them. Some are down right ugly and plain. Added to the time and talent spent for a shoot, before the picture made the cover it went to a touch-up artist who spent about $10,000 getting that picture ready by removing every stray hair and covering every skin blemish and wrinkle.
Your Hair Stylist:
Last but most important, find a good stylist. If you spend \$9.95 on a cut you are likely to get your money’s worth. Few stylists are really good, so hunt them out.
If you need some hints about discovering a good stylist you may want to read, ‘How To Find A Good Stylist.’
