Looking to make a style statement this summer? Then why not go bold with your hair and try out a super-short look.
Elfin crops are a firm favourite on the runway, with Christian Dior’s 2013 haute couture collection featuring an array of short crops.
But are you brave enough to part with your locks?
“Going from very long to very short is such a dramatic change and it’s an amazing way to reinvent your image,” says British Colourist of the Year Ken Picton.
From Beyoncé Knowles to Anne Hathaway, short styling is a favourite with the A-List - but is superstar bone structure a must for cute crops?
“Short hair suits cute, petite features so is one to avoid if your nose, jawline or ears are anything other than uniform,” says Ken.
“Round faces who want a short cut should include lots of angles and a pointy fringe shaping into points over the ears to give the face definition.
“On square faces short hair looks best in a rounded cut with a sweeping fringe so don’t go this short. Lucky old oval faces suit most hairstyles, so it’s more important to look at your features,” he adds.
If you’re thinking of going for the chop, remember that styling is all-important.
So make sure you invest in some bespoke products that will help you achieve that sculpted style you envisaged.
For matte, textured styles look out for styling pastes. Why not check out Redken Rough Clay or KMS California Hairplay Clay Crème which will help sculpt you hair into place.
For a sleek, glossy look invest in products designed to add some hold and shine. Osis Gelflex is a good option for creating a gorgeously slick short style.
