Famous Short Hairstyles
Through the years, many short hairstyles have been made popular by
simply appearing on famous people. Even before the 1960ís, when Vidal
Sassoon created the famous Bob haircut, women were experimenting with
shorter hairstyles that also appeared feminine. It was also during this
time that men were fighting for the right to wear their hair longer.
While thatís rather a dichotomy of sorts, the short hairstyles won out
more and more.
Many celebrities have started famous short hairstyles just by getting
their own hair cut in a certain way. In the 60ís, the model, Twiggy, had
her own unique hairstyle as well as her signature stick figure
appearance, and donít forget those eyes with painted in lower lashes.
Many teenage girls and young adult women immediately set about copying
not only Twiggyís haircut but her eye makeup as well. The 70ís brought
us Olympic Ice Skating Champion, Dorothy Hamillís famous wedge haircut.
This cut served a lot of purposes. It was convenient and easy to
maintain, considering what Dorothyís profession was. The wedge was also
feminine even while being short. A worldwide famous short hairstyle was
introduced in the early 1980ís by Diana Spencer, later known as Diana,
Princess of Wales. This hairstyle was short, but had full bangs swept
across her forehead. Many women adopted this haircut to the point of it
being seen on someone everywhere you went.
In more recent years, there has been the revival of both the Bob and
the Pixie haircuts. Actress Katie Holmes had her once long hair cut into
a fashionable Bob following her marriage to Tom Cruise and birth of her
daughter, Siri. Victoria Beckham, ex-Spice Girl Posh, has her hair cut
into a version of a Pixie and a Bob. It has even been dubbed the Pob
from a combination of Bob and Posh. Alyssa Milano, from the TV series
Charmed, went through many hairstyle changes, one of them being a very
short version of the Pixie.
Not to leave out the men, famous men such as Brad Pitt, David
Boreanaz, Keanu Reeves, David Beckham, and Lenny Kravitz, to name a few,
have all made their mark with the different variations of hairstyles
they have each sported over the years. Currently, all of these famous
men are wearing short hairstyles that are not only stylish and
versatile, but easily maintained for these men on the go. All of these
haircuts can be spiced up a little by just dipping into the gel or
mousse for a bit of spiking here and there. Lennyís latest haircut is a
very close to the head style which looks nice, but doesnít really leave
a lot of room to do different things to it. It is, however, a very
easily cared for hairstyle and always looks great at a momentís notice.
Hairstylists are always trying to find that new and exciting new
haircut. With so many of them having already been tried and modified,
itís a bit hard to find something that is completely new. But with some
imagination and great hair products, the tried and true short hairstyles
can still work for you. Itís just a matter of finding the one that suits
you the best.
