More and more women in Southwest Florida are wearing shorter hair and loving it. Rocking short hair is not always easy, and it also comes with more maintenance. Shorter hair gets out of shape quicker then long hair does, creating more trips to the hair salon. Most people get their hair cut a little shorter then normal in the summer. Many reasons are to blame, heat (especially in Southwest Florida), going on vacations, and many others. This gives them extra time to not look freshly cut right away and still make it through the vacation without looking like a woolly mammoth by the end of it. If you are cutting it shorter for heat reasons, I'm sure it feels amazing! This summer has been brutal here in Fort Myers this year. People generally tend to feel like it grows faster in the summer so sometimes it's a matter of shorter is better since it grows even quicker!

Short styles for women have evolved over the years giving women many more options to choose from. Sexier, edgier, and more sophisticated cropped hairstyles are making their way onto many female heads. Even some barbers are catering to more women as well as stylists are giving clipper cuts to many more women clients these days. Leave growing your hair out for the fall and winter and go shorter for summer. This gives you different seasonal hairstyles so that you don't wind up with the same style all the year long.

Don't forget to compliment your shorter hair cut with a new color, going lighter for summer and darker for winter. Fun blondes and strawberry blonde tones are excellent highlights for shorter cropped hair styles in summer. Maybe someone who is brunette for the winter would like to add some chunky or heavy copper highlights to lighten up there do's for summer. There are so many options.

It's not too late for you to get your hair cut short for summer. Many local salons in Fort Myers are feeling the summer blues and offer many discounts this time of year. If you don't have a stylist all ready search Groupon for a salon deal and check there website out before you buy anything. Be sure to print or save in your phone at least three photo's of the hair cut you would like the stylist to achieve. This is extremely important because stylists are artists and that means they are extremely visual people. Each individual in this world perceives every detail differently, and for them that is reality. As the stylists perception of the exact same thing is the truth for he/she, it doesn't matter if it is not the same for his/her client. So having a photograph of the final goal is a spectacular way to get what you want if it is possible for your hair type and facial shape.
