Women’s Haircut Trends 2009

30 06 2009

Throughout 2008, women’s hair cuts did one thing: they got shorter. There was the bob hair trend, the pixie-crop hair trend, and a plethora of others in between.
And unlike the length of women’s hair, their popularity grew.
Which leaves us with an interesting predicament for 2009’s hair trends: the fashion forward, short hair styles of 2008 are no longer fashion forward. They’re no longer unique. Every woman and her chuiauia got one.
So in 2009, fashion forward girls have a choice to make: keep the bobs and blend into the crowd or, to stand out, cut their hair shorter or let it grow.


Girls who cut the bob in 2008 and want a fashion forward look in 2009, are going to have to either let their hair grow out or go something more extreme. Enter the cropped bob and the pixie crop; both perfect for Spring/Summer 2009, but far more difficult to wear for Autumn (Fall)/Winter 2008/2009.

The Cropped Bob
To put it bluntly: the cropped bob is extreme. It’s not quite a pixie crop (below) nor a bob. Short all over, even with a heavily shortened blunt cut fringe, it’s can only be worn by those who ooze confidence. Just look at Rihanna’s cut.
Attention grabbing, it’s even far less subtle with peroxide blonde hair which is probabily the best colour to wear it with.

The Pixie Crop

The pixie crop started as a hair trend in 2008 but, as a natural progression from the bob hair cut, expect to see plenty of it in 2009.
For those fashionisers who are willing to really take scissors to their hair, the pixie crop offers a bold look far less subtle than the cropped bob, and one that is both young and funky when done right. And doing it right has everything to do with the styling: as we learnt from Paris Hiltons, a lack of styling and product and you can look suddenly middle-aged.

The Bob

Perhaps both the cropped bob and pixie crop are too extreme for you? Or perhaps you’ve just got a bob and are eager to keep it. Never fear, the bob hair cut is still in fashion in 2009. It’s just not as unique, but paired with the right clothes and hair style you can still own this look.
And what hair styles should you pair a bob with in 2009? If you’re bob is chin length, look at sexing it up with the bed hair style, or if your bob is shoulder length also consider an adaptation of the mermaid/wavy style as well as bed hair.

Long Hair

You got short hair trends in the form of the pixie crop and the cropped bob, and in the middle is ye olde simple bob; so what does that leave us with? Long hair in 2009. And it’s what AHR is imploring all girls will grow.

You see, the bob is done and dusted for the truly fashion forward, and the shorter variations simply aren’t going to suit everyone; but long hair? Long hair, cut and layered correctly leaves you able to take advantage of most of 2009’s hair style trends. Consider just a few of the looks from the Spring/Summer 2009 catwalks.

Add a bit of oomph to a long hair style by wearing it in a heavily voluminous fashion, a look perfect for pairing back with Black Leather, Gucci, LV boots and a moderate to dark shaded top. But don’t miss out on the mascara, which will add a sexier touch to the whole outfit.

Straight and Sleek

Milkmaid braids

While they emerged in the midst of 2008, milkmaid braids are set to make a come-back in 2009 and figure heavily into women’s 2009 hair trends.

With certain things going out and others making a comeback, this is the best way to put you on the radar for Autumn/Winter fashion around the globe.
