underestimate the power of great accessories with short hair styles!
Since your ears are showing anyway, jazz them up with a pair of big
gold hoops, or dazzler dangles, clusters of pearls, eye-catching
amethyst leverbacks, whatever.
Short hair also means that your neck is on
display, so feel free to put on one of the many styles of

My guy Frank is pressuring me to grow my hair
long. I don't have a problem with long hair but my hair is very
short now and I don't know what to do. Should I bite the bullet
and take on the Goldilocks Lock for the future?
Help me Diva!
Is your man pressuring you to grow
your hair long because he just looooooves long hair on women?
Go buy a long-haired wig, giftwrap
it, and have it sent to the S.O.B. If he likes it that much, he can
keep on his desk, or wear it himself.
Hugs & Kisses,
I have a great new short do. However, I have a
hard time keeping it from wilting at parties. Any suggestions
that will keep my hair looking fresh but not like a helmet head?
To keep your short hairstyle fresh wherever you go, keep a
purse-sized bottle of your favorite spritz or spray handy. It also
makes a great jerk-repellant at parties for when you want to leave
your pepper-spray at home.
Love & Air Kisses,
I got my hair cut short and now I am
sooooo bored. I don't know what to do with it. I have only
one look that I can do and that is is. Help me please.
Marcia, Marcia, Marcia,
Do you think you’re stuck with one look with
short hair? Wrong, wrong, wrong! You can achieve many new looks by
artfully using a few tricks.
Depending on your own hair length, try some of
these favorites of mine:
gel, take a small amount between thumb and forefinger. Use the gel
to spike up tiny sections of hair.
Try the same technique using glitter gel.
Get some tiny colored elastics and make tiny “tails”
wherever you like (check out Sharon Stone’s hair in “The Muse!”)
Use small interesting hair clips—like
butterflies—to pinch small sections of hair here and there.
Try out some
hair jewels—sprinkle them throughout your hair.
Pick up a tube of hair mascara and go to town making
streaks of colors (be sure you get temporary coloring!) throughout
your hair, or just around the face.
gel, and slick the hair straight back. Put on some
glamorous necklace and/or earrings.
If you usually air dry your hair, blow dry it.
If you usually blow dry your hair, let it air dry.
Be creative! Have fun!
I really like my new 2000 version of
the shag look. However, my stylist says that I have to come in
and have it shaped and trimmed up ever 4 weeks. What a hassle of
time and money.
Do you think I really have to go
that often to have my short do kept in shape. I was hoping I
would only have to go every 8-10 weeks to keep the look.
Jennifer My Sweet,
Short hair requires frequent salon visits to keep it in shape.
Depending on how fast your hair grows, get it trimmed
regularly--anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks.
Don’t allow a good style to go droopy, lank, or haywire; it does
more than make your hair look bad, it makes your whole appearance
Do yourself a favor and bring your calendar in
with you on your next salon visit, and set up your appointments for
the rest of the year. Doing this will also help you avoid the dreaded

I have a short Pixie do. My boyfriend thinks
that I should focus more attention on my makeup. Except that I
never wear ANY. So what do I do? I am not sure if I should
just slap on some lipcolor or what?
Short hair styles automatically call more attention to the face, so
make sure it’s presentable. If you wear makeup, be sure that you
take the necessary time to put it on right (don’t worry—once you
get your routine going, you’ll take 5 minutes to do what used to
take you 20). Also, watch those eyebrows, even if you have bangs. Keep
them trimmed and/or plucked so they look tidy.
You’d be astounded at the difference a little
blush and mascara can make to your whole appearance. Take the time to
consult with an expert if you have questions about what kind of makeup
to wear or how to wear it. Short hair can draw wonderful attention to
your features, so make them count!
