How would you like to hop out of bed, brush your fingers through your hair, and be just about ready for your day? With the right hair cut, you’ll be able to do that some days and still look chic! 2009 hair styles are responding to just this type of treatment on a daily basis. Long or short, curly or straight, the type of hair you like best is in style if it’s moderately clean and looks slightly neglected. Now you’ll have more time to focus on the issues real life is bringing you this year.
The hair styles for 2009 are looking more and more natural. Why? Because they are more natural. The natural look is the sexy look that many of us are striving for. The hair style right for you will compliment the shape of your face; the color of your hair will harmonize with your skin tones. The result is a hair style that is easy and economical to maintain. Despite predictions to the contrary, the trend is not to shock with hair, but to accentuate natural beauty. Of course, a bit of bright, temporary color and some stiff gel can create the outlandish look you want now and then, but, aside from party days, the look to work toward is a natural, not-too-scrutinized look that will lead the way to the real you.
Soft lines, soft color – these are the characteristics that bring out natural beauty. Drew Barrymore’s recent high, hair-wrapped pony-tail is a simple, yet beautiful accent to her whole look. The simple, straight, flared-end shoulder-length cut looks very good on Anne Hathaway. She can change it by pulling it back from her face with a headband, parting it on the side and bringing bangs across her forehead, adding a braid for a fancy touch, or just pulling it back in a pony-tail. The shorter hair styles are easier to maintain. Try Paris Hilton’s choppy look that still softly frames her face. Curly hair is very cute short and lends itself well to the bed-head look that has been worn by Kym Johnson.
Long hair is innately natural-looking and sexy. All down, or partly up, finger curled or slightly poofed by moussing and an upside-down blow, you’ll have Marisa Miller hair in less than ten minutes. If your hair is naturally straight, a little application of the curling iron to the ends will add a 2009 look. If it is curly, an anti-frizz product is a must, but then you can just let those curls go like Jordin Sparks’. Somewhat complicated up-dos are being worn with braids, beads, and flowers, tastefully added to compliment hair, not overshadow it. The hair style can be very smooth as if just finished, or messy as if you slept on it after having a pillow-fight the night before. A hair out of place is not out of place this year.
The look you want is relaxed and genuine. Last year’s bed hair is modified by becoming actual bed hair. Or spend five minutes giving yourself a soft, natural look that will accomplish two goals at once: confidence in your looks, and extra time to spend on the important relationships in your life. If you don’t already sport an easy-care hairstyle, find a stylist who will be able to advise you on the most beautiful, natural cut and color for you.
