Latest Hair Style Trends For 2010!
In 2010 hairstyles are still evolving, but still referring back to many retro trends, just with an added touch of the future created by top hair stylists using the latest hair styling techniques to achieve cool new looks. We can still see the influence of the 1940s with the flapper bobs for women and pompadour cut for men. The 1980s are quite influential this year, with crimping and curls being seen on the catwalks and in the high street. The eighties looks are combined with a bit more 1990s grunge though, as the tousled look becomes popular. Moving away from the recent years perfect glamour puss hairstyles, the same styles are being ruffled up a bit, creating more textured hairstyles and a little more interest. Rock chicks can rejoice as scrunch drying, natural layered looks are definitely en vogue. Sleek and sophisticated is still in, but controlled wildness is also making a splash and funking up 2010 hairstyles. Colors are vivid and bold, except for blondes which are muted and moving away from brassy tones to more neutral colors.
2010 Hairstyles - Short
In 2010 short hairstyles are exciting, lots of product required for a punky street look, or for a softly textured and feminine look. Backcombing adds some height for a stunning night out. Funky elfin crops look great on oval and heart shaped faces. Small features also suit short cropped hairstyles. If you have a round face you should avoid this hairstyle.
The Pixie Cut
Tousled pixie cuts, as seen on Pixie Geldof are very fashionable this year. You can use pomade on your cut to define the tousles.
Shaggy urchin crops as seen on Kimberly Wyatt are becoming popular. They can be glammed up by smoothing down and making them glossy and sleek using a shine pomade.

2010 Hairstyles - Long
Long hairstyles are even more popular since the advent of less expensive hair extensions. So how to wear the long tresses this year...well either straight or curly, again texture is key to an up to date look. Adding long layers you can wear hair tousled for daytime and then smooth and glamourise with rounded rollers or tongs for night time glam. Keeping long hair well conditioned is a must, although with dishevelled chic being popular, it does not need to be as well kempt as previous years. A little back combing can give shape and volume to otherwise limp long hair, and this years spotlight is really on hair accessories, this is especially the case with long hairstyles.
