NEW SHORT HAIRSTYLES FOR LADIES 2023
Our new short hairstyles for ladies 2023 are not that new after all. History’s trends are here to stay, indicated by every new short hairstyle.
When we talk about new short hairstyles for ladies 2023, “new” is a relative term. An often-quoted phrase from the Bible says, “There’s nothing new under the sun.” In a sense, hairstyles are no different. The new short hairstyles and ultra modern looks we admire today are in many cases remakes of previous hairstyles. Skillful hairdressers have simply added a new dimension, a different angle or integrated a dynamic concept to create our trendiest looks.
For example, one of these new short hairstyles for women that’s not so new is the bob. A bob is a chin-length hairstyle for women that usually includes some defining angles and a well-proportioned set of bangs (fringe, for our British counterparts). While today’s bob is slightly choppy, very textured and full of movement, it’s not a completely innovative concept. The flappers in the 1920s inaugurated the bob, a rebellious haircut during a long-tressed era. These women in the Roaring Twenties got rid of their hair as fast as they got rid of the required skirt lengths and other taboos, such as smoking, drinking or partying without acceptable supervision.
Relatively recent new short hairstyles have sported a bleached, surfer-looking blond color. While we may think we’re so cool with our hairstyling products for “naturally” bleaching hair in the sun, a similar set of bleaching products were all the rage in the Europe of the Middle Ages. Both men and women tried their hand at using saffron, bleach and other dyes to obtain the coveted golden hair.
Other new short hairstyles are based on Elvis Presley, 1940s movie actresses, the ’70s mullet or the ’80s punk inspiration. In short, we may have come a long way, but nearly everywhere you look, you can find a renewed hairstyling pattern – new, yet with a retro hint to it. Vintage is in but with a new twist. Let’s just hope white powdered wigs or three-foot dos kept for months on end don’t come back.
