Teen Haircuts to the Mature Makeover Look good at Any Age

I had my hair cut today. It'is not a thing that I do very often, mainly because I hate the idea of someone chopping and pulling my hair, usually too much. I always think that, if I say two inches off of the bottom, I am going to look in the mirror and see at least ten inches hit the salon floor! But this time I had to.

My hair had become very dry and damaged, mainly through me coloring it, and not taking enough care. So, taking my life in my hands, so to speak, I headed of to the nearest salon. Now I don't know about you, but if there is one thing that drives me crazy, is the fact that a man can go straight into the barber shop and have a hair cut. Women have to make an 'appointment'. Why? Why do we do that? I can understand it, if you want to get your hair coloured, or maybe permed.

Obviously this would take up quite a lot of time, so for the respect of the other customers, and not to keep them waiting, make an appointment. But most ladies, like me, just want to go into a hairdressers, and get it chopped, if you get my drift. We are like that. We do things on a whim.

Okay, for some of us that may be a bad idea. Can you imagine your husbands face, when you decide on the spur of the moment, that actually that new craze, you know the one I mean, blue spikes and shaved sides, might just look good on you? Well, you get my point! But seriously, most women like to take their time. But not waiting for it to be cut, just take their time choosing the style. Once that is done, then of we go, hoping that we can be fitted in somewhere. But that is when the trouble starts.

I bet you cannot find one ladies hairdressers that will fit you in straight away. I am lucky, there is a unisex hairdressers just down the road from me, and I always go there. Well, at least once every two years! The rest of the time I do it myself. Anyway, my point is, after deciding that I wanted a new cut, I looked in the magazines, and online and after about half an hour, I began to get very frustrated that every time I clicked on a site, it had about two pictures of hairstyles and a lot of writing! So I went to another one.

Same thing. In fact there was only about two sites that were decent. So after having my hair cut, luckily I found one good picture, I decided that, when I had more time, I would check it out some more. No, same thing. So I did the only thing I could think of to rectify the problem. Do one myself. So here we are. I have tried to cover all ages, because another thing that drove me insane, was trying to get a haircut that would look good on me, and not just a twenty year old beauty queen!

Teens Girls

So I thought I would start with a few teen hairstyles, and work my way up from there. I have tried to be as varied as I could be. From the short bob, to the long curl.

Why Not Add a bit of Colour to Your Hair with a few Accessories?

Boys skater looks and Emos

The one good thing about boys hairstyles these days, are the way that they can have a versatile look instead of the old short back, and sides, or the long biker hair.

It really all depends on the shape of the face. If you have a large forehead then a good floppy fringe is great. If not, got for the classic short back and sides look, either way go for what you like and are happy with.

The More Mature look

It's not only teens that like a sassy new hairstyle. Just because you are older, doesn't mean that you have to succumb to the old sad looking perm or bob.

Check these out. I always think older women have a habit of sticking to the really short styles, and I recently noticed while out shopping, that at least three women walked into the shop looking exactly the same. Short cut hair, big glasses, same clothes etc.

I think a really short cut, with a back combed crown makes you look at least ten years older. The best bet if you want to have short hair, is to have it flat, or curly, but make sure that it is quite long at the front.

It takes years of off your face. Check out some of these ladies. Their hair makes them look younger, whatever their age.

And don't forget to get a cut at least every six months. There is nothing wrong with long hair, but even long hair needs to be kept neat and in style. Layers add a good volume to the hair, making it look full of body, and not too flat.

Mens hairstyles

Now ladies, you are meant to be looking at the hairstyles for men! not at the men! I know it's hard, but I am trying to be serious here! You all know that you really want your husbands to look like the last picture!

I couldn't resist putting a picture up of such a hunk of a man, with such a barnet (English speak for haircut!) that would make you drag your hubby down to the barbers and just whack him in that old chair!

Thanks for reading it, and if these didn't wet your whistle (English speak for getting you excited!) then I am afraid I have no idea what to do with you! Ha Ha!

Hi, Green Lotues, that was quick! thanks for getting here first. You don't like the lovely man at the end?!! hee hee I couldn't resist! I have to go back in and try and change the amazon links etc, as when I put it in, they were all next to the pictures, but it must be the adverts that have pushed them out of place. And your hair is similar to mine, so it must be pretty terrific! lol thanks again nell

hi, sheila, that's a great idea, what about the one near the top? with the pink?!! ha ha thank you again nell

Nice hub. I also color my own hair, six months ago I left the color on to long and my hair got over processed and started breaking off. I am still trying to repair it while it grows out. Lots of hot oil treatments and conditioning. What a disaster!

Great hub. I love the pictures but I must say I have never had a hair cut different from what I do have now, since I was 6.

Oh...I would not be as brave as you cutting my own hair...

I use lots of coconut oil for my hair instead of conditioner.

Thank you for your lovely hub. I go to a very small shop and he cuts it there and then and just as I like it. Took me years to find the right hairdresser. I like it short so it is easy to keep it tighty.

Hi, msorensson, that is a great idea, about the coconut oil, sometimes conditioner is too sticky and leaves a residue. Thanks again nell

Love it- and love your hair! I love the hairstyles too - only I want one of their bodies to go with it....I always ask for that when I go to the stylist but what the heck? I always leave with the same one and looking the same age....I just don't get why you can't have everything! Well done.....

Hi, daisyjae, glad you liked it. thanks for reading. cheers nell

Hi, Audrey, sorry it took so long to answer, I have been away for a couple of days. I know what you mean, I keep trying to find something really different, but after cutting it, a couple of weeks later, it either looks like a birds nest, or back to the way it was! i give up! lol I think it is probably a good idea just to put a bag over my head! ha ha thanks again nell

I have always cut and done my own hair but usually just a natural dry does it, I seldom roll or use curling iron. I don't know why but I look like a freak every time I have my hair done, they can't even go by a picture. Must be my curse, I just gave it up long ago and believe it or not I have my husband cut it straight across in back every now and then.

Hi, Polly, sometimes it's best to leave it alone. I had mine done recently and I have to do more to it now, than before. One of these days I will learn! lol thanks again nell

Oh I've tried so many things. The bobs, all kinds of layers...I want low maintenance but not so short that my face scares anyone. ;) The cut on Charlize Theron looks about right.

Nell Rose 6 years ago from England Author

Hi, mulberry, ha ha I am sure your face won't scare anyone! I think that we all think like that. I sometimes look in the mirror and think, oh my God! I have a crooked nose! so it's quite difficult to get the right cut hair. thanks again nell

Hi, susan, I don't blame you! lol it is so much easier to have a short cut, I did have short hair a long time ago, and since it has grown I keep telling myself I will get it cut a bit shorter, but now its cold weather I think I will keep it long!
