By KENDALL FUQUA
There always seems to be a variety of popular hairstyles no matter where you turn. It makes no difference who you are, the time comes for all of us when refashioning your hairstyle with the latest look is priority. And yes, you can get the latest hairstyle if you know where to look and how to relate your request to the right stylist. Inspiration can come from the styles worn by celebrities as well as the fashion world. For most of us, our hair is the number one accessory that we own, either by growing it or by purchasing it. Hair means something, if not everything, and many lives have been changed by the look of a new hairstyle.
The question that always seems to be the most asked is how long should my hair be. Some women wear certain lengths based on their emotions and some based on time. The fashion industry also has its thoughts on the subject. Short hair will always be considered to be the immaculate, fashion forward, stylish and extremely sexy look for many women. With short hairstyles, there are endless possibilities that never get boring. When you look at any fashion magazine, you always encounter pictures of famous celebrities wearing short hairstyles. The question that I hear repeatedly is ― would a short hairstyle look good on me. The answer I like is that a suitable, personalized short hairstyle would look great on anybody.
Medium length hairstyles on the other hand, will always offer the advantage of being able to experiment. The medium length is getting the most attention right now in fashion and Hollywood. Doesn't everyone want a quality hairstyle that will get them noticed and will be easy to style? This is also an acceptable length with those wanting to make a change, because it can be easy to grow it back long again. It’s the “crawl before you walk” length when making that transition into a new shorter hairstyle.
Ok. We know that long hairstyles will always be in the spotlight for any season, and will remain the most popular for the majority of women. Why? It is usually because of the security that it seems to give, or because of the easy ponytail. And don’t worry ― stylists will always have a plan for the ladies that want to keep those lovely locks long, stylish, and healthy.
