An even shorter cut would be a "pixie crop," which is a fabulous way of being glamorous, elegant and funky all at the same time. Add in extremes of either dark chocolate or permanent blond for coloring, and you get one of today's extremely fashionable hairstyles. But be aware that this hair cut is very demanding and lack of styling can add a couple of years to your complexion.
Another less demanding and nevertheless popular and stylish cut is the long bob, which will be quite common because it is the length all last season's pob wearers have by now. The hairstyle is probably the most convenient one ever invented on this planet; a shoulder length even cut gives many advantages as it can be worn straight or curly, with fringe or without, loose or pulled together. Millions of possibilities will allow you to stand out in a crowd just as much as with a pixie crop.
Now the colors, the main trend is as bright and exciting as possible. However, this should not in any case mean a combination of contrasting highlights and extreme tones 's colors must be mixed, but very transparently and by undetectable degrees.
There is no preferred color; both blondes and brunettes will find many new shades to experiment with, such as milky-strawberry, cinnamon and hazelnut. Redheads, meanwhile, are gaining in popularity and many consider it to be the new blonde 's not so extreme but nevertheless sexy.
There are plenty of possibilities for this spring and the summer that follows. Starting with the creation of a new look, it is advisable for you to visit to your hairstylist first, as your hair is something you are going to wear every day.
