The Latest Short Hairstyles on the Red Carpet
By Jessica on 22 October 2013
Short hairstyles are gaining popularity again on celebrity women of all ages.
While long hair has always been the norm on the red carpet, short hairstyles are definitely gaining popularity on celebrity women of all ages. Maybe they enjoy the no-fuss styling that short hair provides busy women on the go. Or maybe they like to showcase their faces more with a shorter ‘do. Whatever the reason, these celebrities are rocking the latest short hairstyles on the red carpet, and they are doing it with style. If you need to freshen up your look, check out these short ‘dos and see which one is right for you.
Regal and Elegant
Charlize Theron never tries to pull off a look that is too trendy or edgy. Instead, she works with her classic features and sophisticated sense of style when she chooses her hairstyles. Here, she is wearing a gorgeous layered short hairstyle that has longer layers on the top and a tapered back and sides. Charlize makes the most of this hairstyle by styling it with a deep side part and a dramatic side-swept fringe. This hairstyle would look just as good styled towards the face, but Charlize’s tuck behind the ear shows off her amazing cheekbones, long neck and of course, those fabulous earrings! This style will work for you if you have an oval, oblong, square or diamond-shaped face.
Funky and Punky
Sharon Osbourne is no doubt the queen of short, funky hairstyles. She shows us that women of any age can experiment with bold colours and high-volume cuts. This particular hairstyle matches her vibrant personality and trendy fashion sense. The deep wine hair colour looks fabulous with her fair skin and blue eyes, so try this shade out if you have similar colouring and like to go for the rock chick look. This haircut will work well for women with medium to thick hair who also have natural body. To style, all that is needed is some mousse applied to towel-dried hair, a round brush and a blow dryer. Simply take sections of hair and blast the roots with hot, then cool air. Then, maintain volume and sheen by rolling the round brush as you dry the lengths and ends. Create a messy part with your fingers and spray in place with a strong hold hairspray. This hairstyle will work best for any face shape except square and rectangle.
Edgy and Emo
Michelle Ojeda was recently spotted flaunting a jagged angled bob that would please ladies looking for a younger-looking bob haircut rather than a shorter, tapered ‘do. This graduated cut elevates higher at the nape of the neck and the edges have been cut jagged all around to give the ends some texture and movement. Michelle’s fringe has been grown out to blend in with her bob but a shorter, side-swept bang would also work well here. For a more conservative look, go for a stunning all-over colour to match your complexion and eye colour. Michelle has chosen an edgier route here, letting a few inches of her natural black hair peek through, while the lengths and ends have been lightened to a peroxide blonde for a retro Eighties feel.
