Celeb Trend Alert: Is Short Hair Sexier?

Break the rules

Salma Hayak

In the past, short ‘dos were considered a no-no for wavy- and curly-haired women, but Gwyneth Paltrow and Salma Hayek have proven you can rock sexy short hair with texture. The key is to cut curly hair when it’s dry so that the cut contours your head, according to Serafino. It also comes down to time commitment. If you have wavy or curly hair and crave that sleek, straight, chin-length bob, are you willing to put in the time to blow it out every day to tame your hair’s texture? Or are you better off going for a medium-length cut with side-swept bang like Kate Moss.

Do you want your hair to whisper, talk or shout?

“If you want your hair to whisper, go for medium-length hair, like Jennifer Love Hewitt,” says Serafino. “If you want hair to talk, go from long hair to chin length. If you want it to shout, crop it short like Halle Berry and Victoria Beckham.”

Go in stages

Gwyneth Paltrow

Once you’ve decided how short you’d like to go, try easing in with a series of two to three progressively shorter cuts, such as from shoulder length to mid-neck to chin-length. This allows you time to adjust to the shorter length – and to put down the scissors if you’re having second thoughts.

    Gotta say that nothing is better in the summer than a sweet short do! I definitely prefer my hair longer, but there’s nothing sexy about sweaty, frizzy too-long hair when the temperature starts to rise. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I’ve done both and I love both… it just depends what mood I’m in.

    I’m with uptowngirl. I rock all kinds of lengths depending on what I’m in the mood for for that hair cut. But my hair grows fast so short cuts are not intimidating. I did short for the last two years or so and now I’m back to long and loving it. Although short dried and styled faster.

    I think Christina Aguillera and Halle Berry look absolutely GORGEOUS with short hair! My favorite look for Demi Moore was in “Ghost” when she had that pixie cut because her face is so beautiful. She wears her hair long now because it makes her look as young as Ashton.
    I’m 56 years old and would trade with ANY of you girls just to HAVE hair again! (I have terminal cancer.) But previously when I let my hair grow longer, I couldn’t wait to cut it all off. When my hair was very short, I had women stop me every day asking who cut it. I have big brown eyes and naturally blonde hair, and those short cuts made me look very striking and sophisticated. I always wore fabulous chandelier earrings (still do) that accented it that much more.
    It takes a special lady with guts and a don’t-give-a-damn attitude to rock really short hair! And one always has to wear bold eye makeup and brightly colored lips, or risk looking like a boy………
