Short hair, which lacks length, is often described as “boring” and “hard to style.” Although very wrong! The edges, the side locks, the faded effects, the colors—there are plenty of ways to spice up your complexion, despite the lack of materials. Signature short hair is an excellent solution to give life and benefit to your hair.
Today there are many hair techniques to give your hair a new look. However, the oldest one is making wicks. This is a fairly straightforward technique where the highlights appear in a rather prominent way. Then we play on contrast to create movement and sublimate her short hair with a bolder, more rebellious and dynamic look. To brighten the face, we’ll naturally bet on blond locks, while to emphasize his features, as if to accentuate his “tomboy” (hooded boy) personality, darker locks will be in the spotlight.

Why highlight short hair?
Apart from its own aesthetic character, short shaded hair has many other advantages. Firstly, even if it is desirable to get highlights at the hairdresser, using the right dye and tools, it is quite possible to get the same result at home. That’s right, because this type of coloring does not require going down to the roots of the hair, which facilitates the process, not to re-grow them. The color shift created by contrasting locks is also very useful for creating the effect of relief and volume. Fine hair is the biggest beneficiary because it is rejuvenated and visually thicker. Yes, it is not a color that has a very natural effect, but it is very elegant and modern.

If you’re betting on a more realistic show, then let yourself be tempted by sweeping on short hair. However, unlike locks that can be relied on for the shortest lengths, sweeping is very difficult to perform on short hair. For this particular reason, we prefer cuts like long pixies and even square ones instead. The latter have the advantage that they still have few lengths, due to which the unattractive appearance of the tiger can be avoided. To make a sweep for short hair, we start at the natural color at the level of the roots and then lighten the lengths by one or two tones. So we play on subtle coloration to trick the perception of the natural appearance of the hair fiber. In order to reconcile the trend with the originality, the blonde man will be further enhanced by a California or honey sweep. For brunettes, moreover, auburn, copper, chocolate and caramel color will be in order.

Likewise, when you want to adopt shaded hair, a minimum length is also required. The best is to choose the square, because the shaded square usually features three different shades of the same hair color. At the level of the roots, the natural pigment is preserved and then develops to a medium shade in the middle of the hair mass and lighter towards the ends. Thus, a gentle decomposing effect is spread along the hair fiber, creating a progressive, natural and aesthetic effect. There, then, the worries of regrowth are spared and the illusion of size is sought again.

A short cut with locks is also very relevant for mature women of 50, 60, 70 years old. Over the years, hair gradually loses its luster, strength and density, the taste for short haircuts increases as the age of 50 approaches. We got them draped, decadent, we swiped a lock on the side, all in order to restore volume to her dull, stiff hair. Finally, we also add some colored streaks, always with the intention of thwarting the perception and increasing the intensity. To maximize this effect, use several agglomeration techniques simultaneously.
