“Short hair is really hot right now, complimenting women of all ages,” says master stylist Kattia Solano, “The short look of today is classic yet modern – and the style has a simplicity that I love!” Most people find themselves gravitating towards cleaner, shorter hairstyles than ever before – even if the length is somewhat out of their comfort zone. Kattia says, “Make no mistake about it, a short haircut is a very striking look that will turns heads. Women will notice it and wish they can have it, or just wish they would have the guts to do it!”

The lines of a short crop are simple but very powerful because it exposes your neck – a very sexy part of a woman! Cropped hair also opens up your face to show off your sexiest facial features, such as the jaw bone. Will you have your crop moment in early 2015? We say the cold season is by far the best for trying something on the shorter side… After all, short hair is a fabulous accessory for all those chunky sweaters and bulky scarfs we’re wearing now! The absence of humid, frizzy hair days that come with warmer weather is also a styling plus. A shorter length is easy to maintain and comes with a versatility that’s hard not to love.

“You can style it straight and sleek or a little messy and wavy. Wearing it straight is more classic. Wavy tells a whole different story…” Whether you choose just a little bit of bend in your styling, “cool” and relaxed waves, or defined party waves – the look can transform from fashion forward and feminine to playful and trendy. From “model” to “new mom,” this haircut will leave you bold babes out there beaming with confidence and major sex appeal! A short cropped look such as the one pictured here by Kattia, best compliments fine to medium thickness and textures ranging from straight to wavy hair types. For the best results, try Kattia’s pro trick: “I like to cut the back with a razor to create a very soft line that blends and gives the look of perfect movement. Then I finish the sides with my shears to give a more defined line.”
