Short haircuts are ideal if you have short hair. “People with straight hair
will suit any short haircut. Very short or simply short, depending on what you’re after. This is because straight hair is so easy to style. But be careful not to go too short if your hair is too straight. Otherwise it will stick up and you’ll find it difficult to style.”

have to deal with volume every day. The question is, do you want to embrace the volume or tame it? Answering this question will help you find your ideal haircut. There are no rules, it’s simply a question of preference. Our tip:
if you like to vary your hairstyles, keep a bit of length. That way you can mix things up by wearing your hair up and down and using different effects. © Pixelformula/Christophe Lemaire prêt-à-porter show, Autumn-Winter 2013-2014 © Jean Louis David
