Short Spiky Hairstyles for Women

Short hairstyles have gained a lot of popularity among many women who let go of the idea that in order to be sexy you should have long tresses. As a result short hairstyles for girls now have a greater variety and the versatility of these hairstyles has increased dramatically. Short spiky hairstyles are on the top preferences of women of all ages so check out a few spiky hairstyles for inspiration to see if they might suit you.

Due to the incredible diversity of hair cutting techniques and the multitude of styling techniques available short hairstyles have come to be one of the top choices for women of all ages. Several female celebrities have willingly gave up their long locks in favor of shorter, edgier and sexier hairstyles, contributing to the development of this interesting hairstyle trend. With the huge selection of hairstyles available, any girl can find a hair style to suit her face shape as well as her personality and preferences. As far as the the styling methods use to style short hair, most women like to create spikes to highlight the style of the cut as well as for adding edginess.

The style of the haircut, the hair texture as well as your face shape are all factors you should take into account before deciding to go short to be able to get the best results. Spiky short hairstyles are generally not recommended for those who are trying to minimize the length of the face but they can be successfully pulled off by those who have square faces. You should also be aware that if you have fine hair it will be very difficult for you to get punk spiky hairstyles as these generally require athick hair texture.

Another aspect you should think of when choosing a short haircut is what are the features you should draw attention upon and which are the ones that you would rather hide. If you decide to go super short, you won't be able to camouflage any of the facial features that might bother you. On the other hand your key features, like your eyes and your lips will be on the spotlight, increasing your attractiveness.

While short hairstyles tend to be low maintenance if you want interesting, modern hairstyles, you have to be prepared to invest time when it comes to styling, at least at first. However, once you get used to to the basic technique it will get a lot easier to find hair styling shortcuts that will be allow you to get out of the house quicker. When you are going for short spiky hairstyle regardless of whether you go for edgy hairstyles or you are just trying to get a little volume on the crown of the hair, the styling rules are basically the same.

You first distribute a generous amount of gel evenly on your tresses, you then apply hair wax or hair mousse depending on the style you're going for and you use your fingers to create the desired shape. After this step is completed it is generally recommended to apply hairspray for a stronger hold. If you need touch ups during the day the only thing you need to do is to use a small amount of water to reactivate the hairspray.

While these techniques can apply to almost any short spiky hairstyle, it is up to you to find ways to make the hair style stand out. To be able to get original hairstyles you will have to experiment with a lot of different styling techniques in order to have a better understanding of what hairstyles are going to work best for your hair as well as your personality. You can get easy variations of the same hairstyle by altering the hair texture, the height of the spikes or even accentuate different hair sections from different parts of the head. If you use hair products with a light hold, you can alter the style of the hair multiple times during the same styling session.

While wavy and curly hair might prove to be more challenging when trying to get this kind of hair style, they also offer you the possibility to break the patterns and to create more interesting style. Although it might take you more time to get the style you want, if you keep an open mind and use your ingenuity wisely you will surely be pleased with the results you will get.

Spring/Summer 2011 Long Hairstyle Trends

Spring/Summer 2011 Long Hairstyle Trends

Embrace your natural beauty for spring/summer 2011 whether we are talking about straight or curly hair. Silky, smooth, healthy, tousled locks are perfect for a sweet and chic look, while sexy waves are a great way of spicing up your long hair by adding bouncy texture. Besides, ponytails, chignons, top knots, braids and the already famous slicked-back hair represent some of the hottest spring/summer 2011 hairstyles for long hair. 

Natural, classic and elegant represent those timeless trends that will never go out of fashion. They are versatile and practical and allow you to make different hairstyles appropriate for various occasions.

Long, natural, free hair seems to be one of the hottest hairstyle trends for spring/summer 2011. A natural look for perfect holidays in the sun. This is one practical look for summer as it allows you to style your hair without giving the impression of trying too hard or being too sophisticated, but still be able to get a feminine hairstyle. Moreover, the 2011 warm season marks the comeback of the middle parting for long hair, a clear, straight parting for an almost flawless symmetry as spotted at Burberry Prorsum or D&G.

As for the colors, the sun-kissed look is so hot even when it comes to your hair especially for long tresses. There are different versions for the natural-looking hair next season. You can go for the simple touch specific for summer and keep your hair as natural as possible, even messy, or you can opt for gentle waves or curls in order to add movement and volume as seen at Tommy Hilfiger or Anna Sui. On the other hand, for a super glamorous and sexy look you can choose to make beautiful, chic curls (John Richmond) and set the parting on one side (Sonia Rykiel) for a retro, feminine look.

There is no summer without the classic ponytail. A timeless choice that will never go out of style, the famous pony comes back season after season with newer versions, reinventing itself and adapting according to the trends. For spring/summer 2011, it comes in different stylish variants from the most simple, playful to retro-chic or elegant ones.

The ponytail is no longer a way to make your hair or a lifesaver on a bad hair day, but it can be chic, worn both for a daytime look or for an evening event. You can wear it at the nape of the neck with a lock of hair hiding the elastic band such as seen at Issey Miyake for a business meeting or with a backcombed effect such as spotted at Celine.

As summer is all about colors and youthful appearances, you can dare the girly ponytail with a fine French braid (Lacoste). For a bohemian look, try to add a colorful scarf at the base of the ponytail (Blugirl). This will instantaneously transform a simple, common hairstyle into something more elegant, yet feminine and romantic. When making a ponytail make sure the hair is smooth and straight by running your fingers through your hair. If you realize that the elastic band is too low, divide the pony in two and gently and simultaneously draw towards the sides. The ends should be parallel with your shoulders.

Following the trends, hairstyles reinvent themselves every season based on different visions and ideas. However, despite every possible trend, elegance and femininity have always been “in”. The beautiful and the classic will never go out of style. And what better way to be elegant, classic, yet very modern than trying a chignon? Spring/summer 2011 brings so many different versions for every taste and style. The best two things about chignons are their amazing versatility and practicality. You can adapt a simple bun (Dolce & Gabbana, Diane von Furstenberg) to various outfits and events.

If what you want is something more classic and chic, you can go for a higher bun (Oscar de la Renta) that seems to flatter everyone. This is the symbol of the flawless elegance, a perfect option for a formal event that requires a sophisticated, feminine look. Make sure your hair is perfectly smooth and straight before making the bun. Another versatile bun is the one seen at Nina Ricci. Set at the nape of the neck with a slight effortless touch, this is the right option for romantic girls that want to emphasize their innocent and sweet character with the appropriate hairstyle.

If you are more the playful type, a top knot will seduce you without any doubt. A quick and easy hairstyle you can make in an instant without too much effort. A youthful, messy top knot that seems to remind us of the fresh and soft look of a ballerina. It works great for both straight or curly hair adding high drama to a day or evening outfit. For spring/summer 2011 forget the too-tight-to-the-head knot and wear softer versions with face-framing flyaways. The effect will be a girly look that matches perfectly with soft pink lips (Z Spoke by Zac Posen). You can make a statement and embellish your top knot using different hair accessories (Moschino).

Last summer, braids were everywhere and they seem to make a strong comeback for spring/summer 2011. Braiding your hair allows you to be creative and play with different styles. The hardest thing is to learn how to manage your hair and make more complex braids. If what you need is something more simple and casual, opt for a basic braid that you can make in no time. Dishevel hair was replaced by a more polished look with healthy, long, shiny braid (Herm├Ęs). For a more hippie look, try to make bohemian braided hairstyles as seen at Erdem.

The wet effect will be one of the hottest hairstyle trends for spring/summer 2011. Spotted on many fashion runways, slicked hair exudes an interesting combination between masculinity and femininity. The warmer season allows you to use the wet effect in order to create different, stylish hairstyles. You can try a minimalist approach prevailed in the form of sharp partings and tight chignons (Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent), or you can opt for a glassy shine and leave the ends dry and loose (Dries Van Noten). You just need a wide tooth comb and some soft wax or a special hair gel with a dense texture and long-lasting effect. For a more interesting result, leave the marks of the comb visible (Kenzo). As the facial features are fully exposed by a wet look, this hairstyle is not flattering for everyone.
