Long hair isn’t the most feminine or flattering look for everyone, that’s just an old-fashioned myth, and the latest trendy short hairstyles could be your short-cut to a younger look!
Cheaper than a face-lift!
So it was a very pleasant shock and confirmed that although I had worn my hair long for most of my life, and still look at long styles with a touch of envy, I definitely look much younger in one of the trendy short hairstyles!
The wider benefits of trendy short hairstyles
In addition to making you look more youthful, which, let’s face it, is the most important consideration, there are other valuable benefits – that I’ll bet you never knew about – to be gained from wearing trendy short hairstyles!
Did you know that a recent Yale University study into the opinions people form about women, based solely on our hairstyles, the No. 1 hairstyles for creating a very positive impression on those around were trendy short hairstyles?
Look more intelligent and wealthier!

Yes! When I read through the result I felt even more confident in my new look. Apparently, most people see women in trendy short hairstyles as being the most intelligent, open-minded, better educated and most competent compared to other women!
And this leads people to believe that women with a fashionable short haircut are also wealthier than long-haired women!
Choosing your perfect short hairstyle

With trendy short hairstyles firmly fixed as a mainstream high-fashion favorite, there’s no shortage of style options! But, as I’m sure you already know, you should discuss with your stylist which are the best cuts to flatter your face-shape.
Pretty or edgy pixie-cuts
Anyone can wear a pixie-cut successfully, as it doesn’t have to be ultra-short all over. A fashionably long, asymmetric fringe keeps your styling options wide open. A cleverly-cut fringe can shorten a long face, draw attention to your eyes or create smooth, face-softening waves.
Unconventional bobs are super-trendy short hairstyles
Shag-cut bobs are easy-style and can be worn as a casual rough-dried contemporary look or conversely, blown dry so the layers are sleek and smooth – it’s a real two-in-one haircut!
Choppy layers are a great way to take attention away from round or chubby cheeks. And all sorts of extreme asymmetrical bobs create trendy short hairstyles with an edgy, ultra-contemporary image!
So if you want to improve your image in lots of positive ways, take a look at our extensive Inspiration Gallery full of exciting ideas for your trendy short hairstyles update!
