They needed something different and the new era precipitated a great shift. Women began cutting their hair shorter and taking on more boyish appearances, but they didn't skip the glam.

A little bit punk, a little bit sexy and a little bit demure, all combine into a single hairstyle. Any woman who wears it is able to transform from soft, sweet, and professional to super raunchy and racy rocker.

Layer it, or wear one length, the fundamental effect remains with subtle differences. Though the model in our image rocks a blonde hue, we encourage you to take on the artistic flair of any shade you prefer. Would look amazing in a warm brunette, a rich black or even an electric blue. The only limitation is imagination.

Eighties Asymmetry.

Asymmetry, popularized in the 1980s, has only evolved and grown since. It's a fabulous way to tell the world you're nontraditional and creative, a unique flair and a confidence most only dream of. The deep, angled part makes a quite unique twist that changes the entire appearance. It's diversity that makes us say wow!

Short enough to keep cool in summer but long enough to grow out without losing its grandeur in the colder months of autumn and winter. Dynamic and ultra majestic for all times of the year, no matter your age or personal taste. Fits so many niches: professional, mom, daughter, student, cheerleader it has crazy awesome diversity and will be crazy gorgeous on you!

1920's Flapper.

Finger waves were popular back in the 1920s. Today they're a reminder of the classic past and a total throwback to an era of grandeur and taste. Finger waves are still used today for both casual style and formal gala nights, being the choice of brides and prom queens alike for a vintage, yet oddly modern, approach. Many celebs have rocked finger waves, including notable names like Kim Kardashian (Keeping Up with the Kardashians), Halle Berry (Catwoman), Beyonce Knowles (Singer, Actress) and Nicole Richie (The Simple Life, reality star).

 

Some celeb ladies prefer to wear them in a longer variation, such as Megan Fox (Transformers) and Kristen Stewart (Twilight). No matter who or what inspired you to choose finger waves is you'll be communicating the same message to the world: I'm a woman who possesses sophisticated taste and won't accept substitutes! Women in the 20s needed a new look, and sometimes, so do you! Roar it up, twenties style and opt for daring ideas.

 

Absolutely timeless; having originated in the time of world war one is still alive today. All generations, Grandmothers, mothers and daughters alike will look excellent, it's adorable and appropriate for all ages. Would work best in more natural shades, though you may make it yours and rock a crazy hue or two for your personal preference. It flatters round face shapes best, looks amazing on square jaws and oval faces.

Sleek Front and Spiky Back.

A touch of the punk rock vibe from the teasing and spikes at the back. The slick bangs give a sassy chic appeal. The combination of slick and spiky textures combine to create a suitable finish for casual hangouts, concerts, chill date nights and even for the workplace. Make the spikes pinching the tips using styling wax or gel. Slick the top and front down by combing and applying the same product. Once set, punk rock styles need little or no on-going maintenance.

Victoria Beckham Inspired Bob.

She's not the only leading lady to showcase the inverted bob but she was certainly a pioneer. Others include Rihanna (singer), Paris Hilton (Hilton hotels heiress), and Katy Perry, (2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show singer). These ladies have been at the forefront of the charge on sassy, stylish and edgy hairstyles and show no signs of relenting. Neither should you! Comb through for a casual look, or even muss it up a bit for the rolled out of bed look.

 

Can also be polished and professional; a straight iron, a curling iron, and some shine spray takes us from blah to blast when you straighten the top and curl the bottom edges under, adding shine spray as you go to give locks a polished shine that rivals the brightest of diamonds. Unlike most conservative fashion haircuts, this is spectacular in all colors, including and not limited to the crazy colors so popular among youthful ladies today. Wear it in a simple brunette, or spice it up with an electric blue (just like Katy Perry!).

Every Face Shape.

No matter what direction you choose to go, this example is both refined and modern incorporating lots of edge and appeal for all ages. Women from all walks of life can enjoy this design and it flatters almost every face shape. Enough edge for younger generations but the elegant finesse generally required by women of a certain age.

 

Excellent for warmer climates, as it keeps back of your neck free, it's also easy to flatten along your neck beneath a warm hat for those cold winter mornings. Try it today and watch your spirit evolve.

Bold Attitude.

Despite the bold appearance, updos are functional. They get the hair away from the face and out of the eyes. Whether you're employed at a desk or out in the field, it's important to have a clear field of vision clear, which requires getting your hair up out of the way. In the past, boring designs like buns were the preferred method of getting hair away from the eyes. Today, women are cutting their locks a little shorter and taking bigger risks. The shorter strands give greater freedom to style in unique ways without too many clips, bands, and barrettes. The shorter styles can be glued in place using hairspray, staying strong throughout the day and well out of the way.

Inverted Bob Derivative.

To get the look shown, start with an inverted bob, longer at the front and shorter at the back. Next, apply mousse in generous quantities to the roots using your fingertips. Grant hair the body it needs, use a brush to direct it all towards the crown. It's okay if a few strands get lose. Use gel, hairspray or your other favorite holding product to keep it all in place. Release and re-direct it towards the crown if it moves. Make sure to get any loose pieces.

 

To finish, give the tips a run-through with your fingers to make sure they're separated and free and brush the bangs to one side. Especially fine accompanied by heavy eye makeup. Eyeliner, black mascara, and smoky shadow are all fantastic compliments. The dramatic hair helps offset heavier makeup, giving the wearer greater freedom to attempt an idea they love. Particularly dashing on round faced women with smaller features like Victoria Beckham or Miley Cyrus. Every woman should try a short haircut and a dramatic updo at least once in her life, so give it a try and discover your inner diva.

Vivacious Red Colored Cut.

Fiery rouge is an entertaining shade to work on. Its brightness and the fact that fewer people are natural redheads, the color automatically draws attention. Short ends at the back, varying lengths at the crown and wispy tips in front.

 

It could be as simple as putting leave-in conditioner and combing it through or as complex as teasing, tossing and making it edgy using wax or mousse, the choice is yours. Slick this style any way you want using gel or wax and the possibilities will unfold. With the right color and makeup, you are sure to be a showstopper. In contrast to the relative order here, over the page is a force of nature.

Many Colors and Spikes.

This spiky short design with blonde highlights has the edgy punk look and appeal that's similar to those found on the catwalk or in fashion magazines. Has all the elements of a great design, it has texture and body from the spikes all around the sides, front and top. It has volume and dimension from the red base color, brown lowlights, and blonde highlights.

A Shock of Spikes.

Creation requires styling product for the spikes, mousse, wax or gel will do. Toss the hair around or tease for a messy appearance. To compose an overall finish that's light in appearance, flick the ends away to generate a slight wispiness. Turn the page and you'll see a similar cut that's toned down and more suitable in a formal setting.
