The modern woman is classy, but can also be versatile with her appearance. 2011 is all about being strong, bold, and colorful. From Mohawks to bowl cuts, these styles and more have been seen on the runaway, and by a handful of admirable celebrities. The following will provide the trendiest hairstyles to wear this coming year.
Medium Hairstyles for 2011
Mediums cuts with layers of curls incorporated throughout the style work beautifully together to add movement and texture to the weight of the curls. Plaits and braids are also the perfect trend for summer 2011 and can be used to manage frizz and smooth unruly hair.
A straight cut can also work with medium hair. The popular blunt bob-style remains an ongoing trend among women of all ages. Bobs that feature side-swept bangs and gradually mixed lengths can give the classic bob a more modern look. Whether you stick with the “straight across” style, or the “A-line angled” look, the bob cut can present a professional appearance that looks great on many facial shapes.
Natural waves are in-style for 2010 and will follow into 2011. Wavy hair is easy to maintain, style, and matches beautifully with medium length tresses. Different layers overlaid around the face appear natural, but can enhance one’s features. The flat-ironed look is out. Go natural and create waves.
Up-Do Hairstyles for 2011
For up-do hairstyles for 2011, stick with casual, yet well-adopting styles for formal occasions. Women looking for a classy hairstyle for this upcoming year should maintain a simple, yet elegant look. Braided up-dos, ballerina buns, and chignons are suitable for a range of special occasions and can be used on curly or straight hair.
Plan on getting married in 2011? Hairstyles for the big day revolve around romantic up-dos with tasteful hair accessories. Incorporate waves, braids, or a simple tasseled look into your up-do. These simple, yet gorgeous hairstyles are versatile and can blend in well with a number of formal settings, and of course the bride’s dress. Pin a large, colorful hair accessory into the side of your up-do.
Up-dos are also a popular style among young girls going to prom. This look is convenient, yet works well within a formal setting. Curls go well with the general prom appearance and small braids can be worked into the top layers of hair to add a little something extra to the style.
Short Hairstyles for 2011
Hairstyles have been becoming shorter as many women believe that short hair expresses maturity and elegance. Shorter cuts are also easier to maintain and cooler in the summer months. For 2011, pull out your edgy and rebellious side by pushing away your fears and going for a shorter style.
