Ok, now let’s get down to business!


The haircut and hair color we choose, says much about us, and like our clothing, much of that comes down to what’s in fashion each season as well as what suits us best.


So…..let’s talk about what is in for the spring of 2013!


The hairstyles and haircuts we wear evolve with each passing year, just as the clothes we wear evolve.

So following 2013’s fashion trends, it’s no big surprise that the most popular hair trends are the ones that are the most effortless.

Busy lifestyles and a desire for versatility puts complex hairstyles on the back burner, while classics with a twist, prove the most popular weapons in our 2013 hairstyle arsenal.

That said, there’s no reason your 2013 haircut or 2013 hair color can’t be bold or make a statement. The question, then, is what kind of statement you want to make.

Short Hair 2013: The 5 Hottest Trends for 2013

The Pixie, the Shag, the long bob, The Pompadour, and the Edgy cut.


Short hair is very popular this year,  but which of these popular cuts best suit your face shape and hair texture? Read on to find out.

The Pixie

Audrey Hepburn was the original celebrity with pixie hair and Mia Farrow popularized the look in the 60s. In the past years, pixie hair has “cropped up” on a host of stylish singers and actresses.


The pixie works best on women with thick, naturally wavy hair, but also looks good on women with fine, straight hair.


Avoid the pixie if you have a long face — the pixie could make your face appear longer. The pixie works best on women with heart-shaped, square and oval faces.


It’s a good cut for women with round faces, too, just be sure to add some volume to the top of your head.


The Pompadour


A hot new hairstyle trend for 2013 is the pompadour, also known as the quiff.


This hairstyle — which usually features shaved sides and a puffy teased top that reminds me of a rooster’s comb — has become the cool hairstyle of choice for singers Miley Cyrus and Pink as well as a host of other celebrities.


Who can wear this look? Anyone with guts, really. And it depends on the cut.


A good stylist is adept at funky hairstyles and knows to follow the shape of your head rather than just your face shape when cutting a short, edgy style.




The Bob


The bob is a classic hairstyle that never goes out of style.


This season’s bob has a bit of edge to it.


The hot bobs this year are messy, a bit tousled but they all end at the chin or just below it. Add in blunt bangs or fringe for a really edgy look.

So who can wear the bob? Anyone with a nice jawline and neck will look good in a bob.


If you have a round face, a longer bob is a better option for you.


As for hair texture, bobs work best on thin to medium hair.


Stay away from short hair if you have coarse or curly hair — a bob will only puff out on you.


Super-short, edgy cuts


It takes guts to get a super-short, edgy haircut but the results can be very, very cool — and even sophisticated.


Whether you’re seeking a cut that’s sexy or funky or sweet, there are many, many cuts available to you.


The  Demi-Bob


The long bob has been around for a few seasons and it’s still just as hot this year but it has a new name — the demi-bob.


According to Vogue Magazine, which named the demi-bob a hot trend, it’s a bob that falls anywhere between the mid-neck and the shoulders.


It’s also been seen on many actresses and models this season as everyone seems to have gotten sick of their long, tousled waves at the same time.


Everyone looks good in a long bob, but be sure to abide by the rules of this haircut:


Longer bobs can be bland if too blunt. Stacked layers in the back, with a bit of backcombing while styling, add dimension.


Add fringe or thick bangs for a real retro-70s look.


A bob can’t be too layered, or it’s not a bob.


Leave it wavy and mussed, blown dried under or flipped out 60’s style.


The long bob works best on straight and wavy hair but it looks good on all hair textures (even curly). It’s a versatile cut because you can wear it air-dried or flat-ironed.


The Bob is still one of the most popular hair cuts in most salons, and keeps getting stronger with every passing year!



How to Tell if You’d Look Good With Short Hair

Face shapes, hair texture, body size, your age & other things to consider

Almost every woman can wear short hair.


The secret is finding the right cut for your face shape and hair texture.


Let’s see if we can figure out the best short hairstyle for you.


Tip #1: Consider your face shape Most face shapes can handle short hair, even round faces.

Women with round faces tend to look better with short hair cut an inch or two below the chin. Bobs on a round face, tend to look like a helmet.

You want to elongate your face, and keeping hair a bit longer draws the eye downward.

If you have a long face, you’ll look best with chin-length bobs or shag cuts that create the illusion of width.


Pixie haircuts aren’t as flattering on long face shapes.


Pixies look best on women with heart- shaped faces or oval faces.


Tip #2: Do you have nice shoulders, jawline and neck?

Short hair draws attention to these areas.

If you have a short neck, a double chin or wide shoulders, try a longer short hairstyle that hits under the chin or just at or above the collarbone.

The long bob trend, is hugely popular now and hits right at this perfect point.

Tip #3: Size matters

Pixie haircuts, that hug the skull, look great on some women, but not everyone.

Petite, thin women look great in this cut (think “Amelie”).

Tall, thin women can pull off this cut (think Jamie Lee Curtis and Audrey Hepburn, who was surprisingly very tall for her day), but if you are carrying extra weight and have a small skull, the pixie might not be right for you.


Pixie haircuts aren’t as flattering on long face shapes.


Pixies look best on women with heart- shaped faces or oval faces.

You need more body up top to balance out your body below the neck.

Tip #4: Are you curly? Think twice

Curly hair, tends to get pouffy when cut short.

Some stylists swear curly hair should be cut no shorter than two inches below the chin, but I’ve seen some gorgeous short styles on curly women.

The secret is in the layering.

Cutting curly hair is an art, so choose your stylist carefully, lest you leave the salon looking like a poodle.

At Chrissy’s, we have the “Deva Cut” for curly hair, It makes your curly hair look “absolutely fantastic”!!!

Tip #5: Fine hair looks better shorter

Super fine hair goes flat when grown long.

If you have fine hair, a short cut will add body, just be careful not to over layer hair.

Keep hair as close to one length as possible. Removing too much bulk is bad for volume, so make sure your stylist doesn’t overuse the razor.

Tip #6: Consider your maintenance Not all short haircuts are low maintenance.

You must get them trimmed every four to six weeks, they take styling products to keep them in check and you may have to invest in a flat iron to keep waves at bay.

I wanted to tell you all about the absolutely “FANTASTIC HAIR COLORS” that are in for Spring, but as usual, I’m running out of room, so I’ll get into all the new colors, next month.

Highlights and lowlights, are still big, and will always look wonderful on anyone.

And remember, Highlights and lowlights, are individually designed for your particular haircut, skin coloring, eye color, etc. etc.

OOooops, I’m almost out of room, so I hope you stay healthy and prosperous, but mostly healthy, and I’ll see you next month, and remember,
