In 2009, hair trends are either going to be very short or very long and won’t require a lot of maintenance in order to look good. Some hairstyles imitate popular fashions from the 1940s. Of course, as with any fashion trend, each woman has to find the hairstyle that fits her attitude as well as the shape of her face. Here are few hair trends to expect in 2009.
The Cropped Bob
This style is not an extremely short style. The 2009 cropped bob can be cut in a way that allows the hair to flow. Some prefer bangs while others part their hair on the side. If a person is feeling courageous, they can cut their hair at home using two mirrors. However, because you want your hair to be even in the back, even an inexpensive place like Fantastic Sam’s cut for you. Once the hair has been professionally cut, most people can just get up and go. African-American women considering this style should wrap their hair at night and wear a satin scarf.
The Pixie Crop
This extremely short hairstyle goes beyond the cropped bob. The pixie crop is a hair trend that started in 2008 and continues in 2009. For this hairstyle to look right, the back of the hair should be tapered to the neck. This requires a little more maintenance than the cropped bob because the edge of the neck and the back of the hair has to be trimmed every few weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows. This style tends to look better of women with thinner faces because it highlights their cheekbones.
In 2009, women who want long hair can choose between the straight and sleek style or try a more flowing, wavy look. For women with curly hair, they can use a flat iron to achieve straight hair. This accessory can be purchased at any department store. The flowing look goes with the 60’s styles that have been reinvented for 2009. For this look, a woman can use some kind of hair curler. Women with short hair who want to try this style can get temporary, clip in hair extensions from Extensions.com or go to a hair supply store and buy hair and hair glue. For those who want to keep this hair trend for a long time, a hair weave or hair infusion may be the best option. These processes take as much as six hours and cost hundreds of dollars in some cases. For a simple solution, purchase a good wig.
This hair trend can be long or a little past shoulder length. The current trend is to part the hair on the side with wavy curls. To achieve this style, a person needs setting lotion. On damp hair, spray the lotion and, using a comb or your fingers, create waves in the hair. Hold in place with bobby pins. To accentuate this look, use hair accessories like decorative hair clips or pins.
Although these are the 2009 hair trends for women, it is important to remember that not every style is for everyone. If you want to follow one of the trends, make sure it fits your face or try altering it a little. Before committing to a hairstyle, get a virtual hair cut at HairStylesCut.com.
