It all depends on the proportions of the face. One of the most famous hairdressers in the world, John Frieda, based on his many years of experience working with women, noticed one important feature of the face, which is decisive in choosing the right haircut length. This rule is called “5.7 cm” and consists in measuring the distance from the ear to the bottom of the chin. And, it turns out, the secret lies in the length of the lower part of the face!
To find out if you should cut your hair short, take this simple test. For measurements, you will need a pencil and a ruler. Take a pencil and place it horizontally under your chin. And place the ruler vertically, applying a zero mark to the earlobe. Look at yourself in the mirror and you will see the mark that the pencil marks on the ruler. If the distance from the earlobe to the chin is less than or equal to 5.7 cm, then you can safely do a short haircut.
If the resulting distance is more than 5.7 cm, this indicates that you are better suited for medium-length haircuts or long hair.
One of the most popular haircuts, which has not lost its relevance since the beginning of its mass use by women in France in the early twentieth century. Curiously, the bob haircut has its roots in ancient Egypt, where it was worn by both men and women (look at the ancient Egyptian frescoes!) Nowadays, there are many varieties of bob: bob on the leg, bob-bob, graduated bob, and bob with elongation.
Initially, the haircut “square” was called hair cut along the same length slightly below the ear, in combination with a straight bang. This haircut suits so many women, both owners of straight and curly hair. Owners of fine hair are best suited for a bob with a shortened crown and strands of different lengths.
Pixie is a women’s haircut with short hair at the back and sides and longer hair at the crown. This haircut gained its popularity in the 50s thanks to Audrey Hepburn, who appeared with a short haircut in the movie Roman Holiday.
Pixie haircuts come in different lengths – from ultra-short to more elongated or asymmetrical. With bangs are very different in terms of cutting technique: thick, elongated, milled, or laid on one side.
Due to the layering, the pixie haircut is very easy to style and suitable for any type of hair. It looks sexy, playful, very fresh, and young. Minus 5 years only thanks to a haircut are guaranteed!
This is a haircut in a sporty style, with a volume in the form of a “cap” worn on the head – a voluminous crown, bangs, and nape. Fully or partially open ears. This is a fairly voluminous haircut that is suitable for any density and structure of hair, except for too thin (it will not look voluminous and does not fit well).
Any of the short haircuts can be asymmetrical and involves either asymmetrical styling or a shorter length on one side and longer strands on the other side of the head. Recently, it is very fashionable to shave the temple on one side of the head, leaving the other side of the haircut elongated. Asymmetry always gives the image creativity and dynamism.
