Short Haircuts and Short Hairstyle Ideas for Spring/Summer 2013

I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for spring! I have seen a huge trend for short hair coming in, and if you are thinking about losing your locks, now is the time. There are currently tons of super cute short hairstyles trending. If you have never had a short haircut, here are a few pieces of advice to keep in mind…

1.) Hair cut chin length or shorter can’t be pulled back into a pony-tail; so, if hair on your neck will bother you in the summer, go really short or keep it long enough to pull back.

2.) Anytime you make a drastic change with your haircut, you will need to change how you style it. You will also probably need new products to make your new short hairstyle look right, so be sure to ask your stylist about  the right at-home regimen.

Here is some great short hairstyle inspiration for a Spring/Summer 2013 short haircut… Enjoy! 🙂

A side-swept, asymmetrical, short haircut is fun, edgy, pretty and looks great on most face shapes.

This forward-sweeping, wispy bang is fun, but make sure it will work with your face and hair before you have it cut. This particulat short haircut can look mushroom-y on the wrong person.

Not ready for a short-short haircut? A short bob is always in style. This cut can be styled soft and voluminous (as seen on Cameron Diaz) or piecey (like on Kristen Cavallari).

Summer Hair Trend 2012: Slicked Back Wet Look

There are several styles trending this summer in hair; but one that has caught my attention is the slicked back wet look. Variations of this style hit the runways hard for spring/summer 2012 collections. Initially, I was a little turned off by some of the more severely sleeked and wet looking styles. While there are definitely those who can pull off an extreme wet look, I would like to focus on some slightly more subdued ways that this trend can inspire everyday wearable styles. So here are some do’s and don’t’s to guide you…

DON’T….

1. Over-do it by using too much product (such as gel or oil). This can make your hair look greasy and/or be unflattering.

Heidi Klum’s extremely wet-looking style, is not for everyone. Over-doing it can end up looking greasy and unkempt.

Another extreme wet-look that may not be for everyone…

DO… 

1. Use a light gel, oil, or balm.

2. Tousle the hair for a beachy, messy look.

3. Lightly blow dry or air dry your hair when trying to achieve a stylish, wet-look with some volume.

I love this tousled, slick, wet, and mildly messy up-do.

 4. Try slicking some hair back on top and leaving hair down around your face as seen in the picture below. I think that this is a great way to pull off this trend: high-sheen and a slightly damp appearance (that doesn’t look drenched).

This sleek-look is both edgy and polished.

5. Play with texture. Beachy waves and volume are great for summer. The varying textures and sheen create added interest.

This wet and beachy style is another great way to play up the wet-look trend.

I love this more refined, slick style for a dressier occasion.

6. Try sleeking your hair back into a very polished pony or braid.
