This is a client who is a working professional and travel enthusiast. She wanted to grow her hair out “one last time” to see how it would look. The day came and she had enough of her long hair and told me to do anything I wanted! Well … it did come with some requests…. She ask me to leave it long enough to to pull it up as well a have versatility and style when she wore it down and she wanted her hairline grey to be minimized so as not to show within a few weeks of growing out. I began with her color – two inches around her face was zig-zagged out and a shade lighter than the rest of her base color that I use on the rest of her head was applied to minimize her hairline grey showing to quickly. A full head of highlights then was done to give her a dimensional, brighter look and add body to her fine hair. For her haircut, I decided that a combination of a  “Lob” & “Swag” would be the desired look for her. Enough length was removed and layers were added to still allow for her hair to be styled up as well as worn down straight or curled. Light “curtain” bangs softened her forehead. (not shown).

It is a question hairstylists and reliable friends are often asked; “do you think short hair would look good on me?” Thanks to celebrities recently liberating their locks with crops, bobs and lobs, that question gets asked more often than not.

Well the question of flattery has a short answer: The 2.25″ (5.5cm) rule.

The magic measurement was discovered by hairstylist, John Frieda and it is all about the angles. The angle of the jaw bone determines whether or not someone would look best with short hair or long hair. It is said the result is a trusted, easy and exact measurement that can indicated whether a face (any face) is suited to short or long hair.

Can you wear shor hair example1

 

To try it, position a pencil or pen under your chin horizontally and then place a ruler under your ear, vertically. Take your measurement from the intersection of the pencil and ruler. Less than 2.25″ and you could  look amazing with short hair, and if it’s anything more long locks will be the most flattering choice for you.

 

Can you wear short hair exampleThis example works well well with Michelle Williams and Kim Kardashian (pictured), and when you think of other examples such as Audrey Hepburn next to Sarah Jessica Parker it becomes very clear.
