From Emily’s email:
I’m 31 and have a 10 month old who is about to skip over walking and go straight to running. I work full time and am pretty active so I tend to combine my commute with exercise and get ready for work in my building’s gym bathroom so I can’t cart too many products and styling tools with me. NO bangs, I had them once, and it ended up being too much work. I’m looking for something fresh and modern, that’s short for the winter but still looks feminine (I have broad swimmer’s shoulder’s and can easily look like a boy).
Emily! Have I got some options for you. Taking everything you said into account, I think these two styles would be super fun for you.
Option #1 – Now, this is the most daring of the two options, but I really think it’s fantastic. Since Emily loves shorter hairstyles, but mentioned that too short might be a little too masculine, I decided a pixie would probably be too much. However, Jenna Elfman’s cut could give Emily her wish of a shorter, cropped cut, but the side-swept layers and multi-toned blonde highlights keep the look modern, feminine and fresh. I love how this style would cover some of the forehead and emphasize Emily’s gorgeous baby blues!
Also, this cut lends itself to creating volume, which would be perfect for Emily’s fine hair. Emily would need to work with the front of her hair to train it to fall forward instead of back, but that would only entail a few weeks and a good paddle brush. Also, using a small pin or hair accessory could easily pull the front to the side when she’s playing with her little one and/or exercising. Click here for styling tips for this specific haircut.
Option #2 is a little more conservative, but still fun and modern. The angled cut would keep hair off Emily’s neck, but still give her length in the front. It’s super sleek, super polished, and perfect for Emily’s fine, straight hair. Also, the shape of the haircut would look great with Emily’s face shape.
