2013 Short Hairstyles for Women - Hair Cuts Styles Trends
Short hairstyles for women have been around since the 1920s, when the status of women was changing politically and socially. Women who fashioned short hairstyles at the time were called flappers. In 1922, women short hairstyles were called a bob where hair fell below the ears. In 1925, flappers favored the shingle haircut, where hair was cut very short at the back of the neck and covered their ears. The conventional flapper hairstyle as that of Josephine Baker's Eton cropped haircut became in fashion in 1926.
