Good modern day hairstyles abound, and choosing a nice style is the way to define yourself. A nice hairstyle compliments clothes, jewelry and accessories to show how fashionable you are. A decent hairstylist can give you a modern hairstyle that matches the shape of your face, skin tone, and body shape. They can even match the hairstyle look of celebrities, or give you a cutting edge emo or punk style that will be sure to attract attention. Whether you have curly, straight, or long hair, you can find a modern hairstyle that works for you.
One of the most interesting modern day hairstyles to become popular recently is the layered hairstyle. With this style the hair is cut in a manner that causes different layers to emerge and take on a jagged look, or with only a few layers, you can have a softer look. Having Dreadlocks is another modern day style option that stands out and makes a statement, but it is not the simplest style to create or maintain. You should ask your hairstylist about all the maintenance issues involved with having dreadlocks before you take the plunge.
If you have long hair, there are many options available for you. You can tie it up, cut it short, or micro braid it. Micro braiding results in a modern attractive look, and it consists of very thin overlapping braids that are much smaller than normal braids. Another modern day hairstyle for women with long hair is the French roll hairstyle. This is a simple but sophisticated style that consists of the hair being twirled, drawn back, and pinned around the back of the head in a roll. Use this style for job interviews or simply to prevent hair from getting in your face.
With respect to face shape, if you have a round shaped face, never choose a medium length hairstyle. Go for short or long, and omit bob shaped hairstyles all together. The key to choosing any of the modern day hairstyles for people with round shaped faces is to select a hairstyle that will decrease the overall round appearance of the face. If you have long, straight hair with a round shaped face, keep it tapered to the side. This will make your face look longer. If you have short hair, go for a cute wavy style.
Body shape is another factor to consider when choosing any of the modern day hairstyles available. If you are petite, you should consider having your hair trimmed short and curly. A short, curly hairstyle is also a good choice for a wedding, and many of the popular up-do hairstyles work equally well for weddings also.
Whatever choice you make among the modern day hairstyles, a knowledgeable hairstylist will be able to help you make one that is both fit and fashionable.
