Choose your new hair style - Popular Hair Styles

I will start this hub by saying that I am not an expert on hair styles. I always had the same hair cut since I can remember but I love to watch people (specially women) using different hair styles.

So why did I made this hub? Mainly because I can not turn down a good challenge and also because it is a subject that otherwise I would never write about.


Even though I always use my hair very short I understand why people (once again specially women) love to wear long hair styles.

It is a fact that almost every young woman looks prettier when using long hair and I say young woman because IMHO ladies with long hair tend to look somehow childish and immature. Sorry ladies.

One thing I will never understand is the fear of cutting your hair or Tonsurephobia...

Come on people, it will grow again in no time! ;-)

Well, I know I am not a very good example because since I was 17 years old I have been doing myself haircut at home with an hair clipper. I prefer to do it myself... if I didn`t I would probably had longer hair to avoid the barber`s bill!

Long Hair Styles

Lets` start with long hair styles. Personally I prefer the curly ones as they give this natural look and make the impression that she/he has even more hair. About this one I am also suspect because it is my better half`s favorite style.

As you probably know, some people born with curly hair and they have a lot more work and pain to get it done. I see my wife struggling with her hair everyday. And now my little daughter is starting to complain every time we try to comb her very curly hair.

But don´t you think that those with curly hair are the only ones to suffer. I still remember hearing all those girls with plain hair complaining about having to curl their hair with some kind of medieval torture tools LOL.

Long plain hair it is even harder to maintain in place during all day but it is really nice to watch how they "fly" every time the wind blows.

Short Hair Styles

Approximately two weeks ago when I was still a young boy LOL, I remember to hear people saying that short hair was just for boys.

Girls those days had to keep their hair growing at least to their shoulders. I still do not get it, why should girls have to suffer with long hair if they do not want to!?

Thankfully I am a boy and I never wanted to have long hair so things were pretty simple to me when think about hairstyles.

Alternative Hair Styles

If you really want to step up from the crowd then you should consider getting yourself a brand new alternative hair style.

The first one that I can think about is stretching your hair up with the help of some hair stay styling gel. But if this is not enough you can always shave both sides of your head and stretch the remaining hair like a comb. This way you can not pass by without being noticed.

One of the alternative hair styles I prefer the most is the dreadlocks used by Rastafarians. I guess if I ever think about letting my hair grow longer I would use it with dreadlocks. I bet it is the easiest way to have long hair :-D

If after all this "alternativity" you are still not satisfied, then the thing to do is to paint your hair, lets` say... fluorescent green or orange. Bringing colors to peoples` life!

"No Hair" Hairstyle

I can not say I love to see some woman with no hair but I can understand that choice. Can you imagine how much one can save on shampoo, conditioner, hairdressers, hair driers, etc, etc. LOL

On the other hand I do not see myself shaving my head. At least until I start shaving my face which I also can not see myself doing. I guess I like my hair (and beard, for that matter) style and for the time being I will keep some hair on.

If these is your style you better check out this other hub from Bob Ewing because he is the real expert ;-)

I will never shave my head. We can't tell how long your hair is, keep it hidden under that hat all the time.

Nice job, Funride!

Hi Susan, Thanks. You´re right, there are head structures that fit better with no hair. My mom always wear short hair which I love and your hair style it´s very similar with her´s ;-)

My sister shaved her head this spring - for a charity fundraiser. She tends to wear her hair buzzed pretty short anyway, and it really didn't take long to grow back. Nice hub!

funride 8 years ago from Portugal Author

Thanks Ananta. May I ask you what the (Y) means? I tried to figured it out by myself but I must admit I only see what looks like a female butt LOL.

Hi Dineane, thanks for your comment. Your sister is a generous woman that´s for sure and after that she´ll have much stronger hair ;-)

The only time I remember my hair was shaved bald was when I was five years old. Mom insisted on it believing it will thicken my otherwise very fine hair. :) Well, it's still fine upto today. Maybe it helped only a little. LOL Funride, curly hair looks cute. I guess I just got used to my hair which is wash and wear. Had fun with your hub. :)

Hi Chris, glad you flew over here ;D

To be honest, I love women with every kind of hair: short, long, curly, plain, etc. LOL but I really prefer the ones with curly hair. I can´t stop looking to that gorgeous red hair lady with the glasses. Did you noticed she keep smiling at me, maybe I will be lucky :D
