Shorty Styles

CHOOSING A SHORT HAIRSTYLE

Thinking about taking off some of that length and going shorty? Here are some tips to think about.

Most face shapes look good in a short hair style except for those with a round face. Those people need the hair to hit below the jawline.

Short hair will draw attention to your jaw, neck and shoulders. If these are not your best features a long bob instead to take the focus away from these areas.

Fine hair does very well in short styles. When fine hair gets long it goes flat, so a short style will give you the most body. If you hair is really fine, don't layer it too much or you will lose the weight you need. A single length style is best for very fine hair.

Think about your height, too. A very tall woman (over 5'8") will look better with a cut that ends at the chin line. Petite women will look great in a shorty style because it won't overwhelm their body.

If you have curly hair and you want it short, you will want to layer carefully to avoid getting a poodle look. Thankfully, all of the stylists at 50th Avenue Salon know how to bring the best out of curly hair, even when it's short.

Testimonials

Loves the location and Maggie did an amazing job on my feet.  That foot massage felt incredible and I told my husband that I'm taking my 50th Avenue Salon break monthly.

50th Avenue Salon is a place you won’t visit just once. Whether you have your hair cut, colored or styled, you will be back!

If you have a manicure or a pedicure, you will return for another one, and will have probably recommended a friend in between your appointments!

If you have a massage, you’ll want to return for another one!

All services are rendered by a friendly, very skilled,  and professional staff.  Great atmosphere, and great location!
