New year, new you, new resolutions. Right? If you're anything like me, you're promising yourself to get fit this year, to start exercising more and eating better. But while we're busy managing our bodies, have you perhaps neglected your hair? Besides putting it through all sorts of processing like perming and colouring, have you considered doing more than just visiting your hair stylist for the usual boring trim?
Your long hair may be bothering you in our hot and humid climate, or you may have noticed variations of short styles popping up all around you on television and in magazines. Perhaps you have medium-length hair that you just can't stand because it's not long enough for pretty braids but not short enough to give you an edgy look.
Why not refresh your look with a totally different cut?
Are you ready to go...
Looking to spiff up your image and give yourself an edge? If you're ready for the 180 degree change, the pixie will not disappoint!
Add some spunk to the usually sweet pixie cut and get an instant makeover. Give that extra oomph to the pixie cut with shaved sides, spikes, and tones of texture. Create a look that's both rebellious and feminine at the same time and accentuate your cheekbones, neck and jawline with an edgy pixie.

What a difference a chop makes! Long and sleek may be gorgeous, but medium is definitely refreshing!

Another quirky style! Pair your bob with some cute bangs and instantly look five years younger!
If a one-length bob is a little too basic for you, go with a slightly angled bob that screams fashionista.
Regardless of what style you choose, a good medium cut will get rid of the split ends, frizziness and "qiao" and prevent the hair from misbehaving for a few months!
But what if, after all you've seen above, you still feel that your hair will never be anything but...
If long hair is still the one for you and the thought of going shorter absolutely turns you off, add some character to your luscious locks and break out of your usual style with layering!
You can never go wrong with waves! Mix up your long hair with some face-framing layers and instantly add volume with some loose curls to create an easy, sexy vibe.

Texture may be trending, but the blunt style is having its own major moment in fashion too. Get a straight across cut with a bit of feathering at the ends for an effortlessly glamorous look.
