13 Different Types of Haircuts


When you go to the hair salon to get a haircut, do you know exactly how to communicate the type of hairstyle you want?  A lot of people don’t know, and will accidentally tell the hairstylist that they want something other than what they really want.  There are many variations of these haircuts, but I want to share with you the basics.  Here are 13 different types of haircuts:

This is the most basic form of haircut.  This is literally where the hair is cut straight across, with no elevation (meaning the hair falls exactly like it would).  The result is a very hard line with no texture.

21 Benefits of Having Short Hair (As Told By GIFs)


About a month ago, I decided to take the plunge and chop off all of my hair.  I tried to grow it out for my wedding last year, but it was so damaged and just looked stringy and gross.  I figured that cutting my hair would not only be fun for summer, but would get rid of the dead ends and look fuller.  And boy, was I right.  Anyways, I really like my hair the length it is right now and will probably be keeping it this way for a while.  This morning, as I was styling my hair, I thought that it would be fun to write an article, using only GIF images, to describe all the benefits of having short hair.

Trendy Hair?


So, I have to share some of my personal confusion with you.  When I recently googled “trendy hair,” this was the 4th image that popped up….

“Trendy Hair”

When I Googled the phrase "trendy hair", this image instantly popped up, but I beg to differ. What do you think of this hairstyle?

I guess I didn’t get the memo that “Laker-colored mushroom cuts with sideburns” is in style???  Even more confusing is that when I first posted this short article, I shared this image on Pinterest.  It has been saved and repinned many times.  I guess that means that people actually like this hairstyle.  I mean, I may be getting older, but I just can’t see this as a popular hairstyle.

What are your thoughts on this trendy haircut?  Do you like it?  I’d love to read your feedback in the comments section below.
