Short hair – is it for you?

 From close shaves to cropped coifs, it seems that the who’s who of fashion are all deciding to chop it off.

Women24’s favourite stylist to the stars,  recently shared his thoughts on the latest craze to hit Hollywood hair – short short short

W24: So David, everyone in Hollywood, and even supermodels are all chopping off their gorgeous long locks!

DG: Not since Linda Evangelista cut her hair short in the very early nineties has short hair been such a huge trend. Obviously as a hairdresser I'm delighted because it's a refreshing change and always more exciting to cut hair short.

W24: Is this something that normal women can do and maintain?

DG: Sure, but it’s best to go slowly when approaching the whole short hair trend. A good cut is really important and using the right styling aid like a Davines Pomade or Wax really makes the look modern.

So, here are David’s top tips to getting the trend right for you:

1. For the not so brave the whole mid-length madness look is cool -  think Alexa Chung’s  just blow the shoulder style

2. For the even braver the cool choppy bob of Model Karlie Kloss  is the hottest look right now - fresh and feminine it is really flattering and easy to wear.

3. And for the very brave the boyish crop and undercut like model Coco Rocha's new look really makes a strong statement.

So, there  you have it girls. If you also want to try out the short look, find the style that suits you best and take it from there.
