With the holiday season fast approaching, a lot of women’s thoughts turn to fashion and beauty issues for the upcoming family events and holiday parties. This includes decisions about which short hair cut to choose for the various occasions. There are really two schools of thought about this: be conservative or take some chances.
On the plus side for being conservative, the argument goes that a short hair style that is adaptable and foundational gives you more options for a variety of both informal and formal events during the holidays. There is certainly merit to this argument. A nice classic bob haircut, for example, can be worn in several slightly different ways with relative ease. It’s a nice style for anything, from Church or Synagogue visits to casual holiday parties with co-workers or friends.
Many women are even busier from late November through the New Year than they are in their normal hectic daily lives. So, another strong argument in favor of going with a conservative hair cut at this time of year is ease of maintenance. Nobody needs the added burden of even a few extra minutes preparing to go out. A nice, simple short hairstyle eliminates this concern during the holiday season.
On the other hand, the holidays can be a great time to unveil that killer new look you’ve been contemplating all year long! Why not take this very public time to go out on that limb and try a short hair cut you’ve never worn? There’s no better time to show it off, after all.
Just be careful! A radical hair style change can backfire badly if you don’t plan ahead. Now (October/Early November) is the time to get with your favorite hair stylist to consult about which options are best for you. You’ll have time to experiment a bit before all the holiday events hit. Don’t be afraid to try something totally new. Just temper your exuberance for that new head-turning look with a little caution about which short styles are your best bets, given your face shape, facial features, and hair color and texture.
Speaking of hair color, that’s another possibility, should you rule out a new short hair cut style. Consider your wardrobe. If you don’t plan to buy new holiday outfits this year (undertandable with the poor economy), then you’ll want to be sure any change in hair color matches your existing outfit colors and styles.
As you can see, you have options if a short haircut is on the menu this holiday season. Take some time now – before it gets too crazy – and figure out what you want to do to turn some heads this year.
