When it comes to my hair, I tend to fluctuate between two lengths: just above my shoulder or just above my boobs (both technical terms). Yet there always comes a time with both lengths when I start to feel like I want to either chop it all off and start again or indulge my inner Rapunzel and grow it out super long.
Right about now, I’m at the chopping-it-all-off stage, mainly down to the fact that I’m seeing cool, short hairstyles pretty much everywhere I look, and I know I can’t get it right now. Yes, short hair is definitely trending, and I want in. And because I haven’t been prepared to cut it myself (can you blame me?), the news that hair salons are set to start reopening within the next couple of weeks has been very welcome indeed. However, ahead of booking in, I think it’s best I start to garner some expert advice on potential styles.
“Short hairstyles are on-trend at the moment,” confirmed Neil Barton, Goldwell ambassador and owner of Neil Barton Hairdressing. “Other than the bob and the pixie cut, there are a few other short hairstyles, and this includes the lob—perfect for those who can’t decide whether to keep their length or go shorter. Another short hairstyle that I love is the buzz cut.”
