Kylie Bax was born January 5, 1975 in Thames, New Zealand. Because she is a famous super model, she is required to be on the cutting edge with her hair and fashion.
Although Kylie has had periods where her blonde tresses were actually waist length, for the past several years she has been on the leading edge with her array of trendy bobs, chops and layered short cuts.
Kylie gives Karl Lagerfeld her vote as being responsible for her willingness to follow the short hair way of life.
Kylie has been quoted as saying "Karl convinced her to crop her hair short, dye it blonde and go with a boyish look that had a feminine side".
If anyone can pull of short cuts it is Kylie. She has the skin, eyes, features and hair that are ideal for short styles.
For 2005 she favored a graduated bob style which had a variety of chunky layers with a bit of rough texture along the edges. Because Kylie appears to have hair that more fine that medium, she benefits from having the rough texture which adds the appearance of more volume.

Finding The Right Short Cut For You
Although Kylie had a work related reason for chopping off her previously long locks, many people can take their time before going with a radically different shorter style.
Choosing a great short hair cut that works for your face shape, natural coloring, lifestyle, age, pocketbook and maintenance starts with some research.
Just as it is true that not every person looks great in every hair style, it is also true that most short cuts can be custom modified to work with a wide variety of ages, face shapes and other variables.
A good short hair style, like any hair style, should be built around basic styling principles that balance the hair's natural texture, type and natural form with ultimate movement and flow.
The reason that short styles can be custom designed to work with just about any face shape, coloring or other variables is because there are so many different short hairstyles to choose from.
Even better, short hairstyles can be coupled with a dizzying array of parts, bangs, layers and other techniques to make every chop, crop or short bob to be truly unique.
Steal Kylie's Short Style
To steal Kylie's short and sassy bob complete the following steps:
Step 1: Shampoo and condition your hair with your normal products designed for your current hair type, texture and condition.
Step 2: Gently towel blot your hair with a thick towel designed to help absorb moisture. Avoid rubbing hair vigorously to avoid frizz. Continue to gently blot hair until all excess moisture is removed.
Step 3: Mix a cocktail of leave-in conditioner and frizz buster in the palms of your hands. Apply to damp strands to help keep hair soft and frizz free. Distribute well.
Frizz Fighters to try: Phytodefrisant - Relaxing Baum - 3.3 fl oz (100ml) and John Frieda - Frizz Ease - Original Formula Hair Serum Dropper
Note: If your hair has natural waves or curls and you wish to have a straight sleek look, mix a cocktail of frizz fighter and straightening balm together.
Premixed Combo Product to try: Paul Brown Hawaii Stray Straight offers both an anti-frizz and smoothing balm wrapped up into one simple product.
Step 4: Use a wide toothed comb to detangle gently and make sure that the applied styling products are well distributed.
Step 5: Use a flat or paddle brush to lift and anchor two inch sections of hair straight while directing blow dryer air flow down from the roots to the ends. Use the brush to slightly turn the ends under as you blow dry. The results will be a sleek style.
Note: For a more textured look substitute a round brush instead.
Step 6: Work in two inch sections around the entire perimeter of your head until all of your strands are 100% dry.
Step 7: For more definition apply a tiny bit of hair wax to the palms of your hands. Soften the wax and then using fingers, lightly apply to random strands to add definition.
Note: For a softer look that still offers control, try working with hair paste instead of wax.
If you prefer, when hair is dry, add some pomade to the tips to create soft spikes.
Step 8: Apply one or two drops of shine serum to the palms of your hands. Mix well and then lightly brush your hands over the top of your tresses.
Step 9: Spray lightly with a soft hold hairspray.
Short hairstyles may or may not be the best bet for you. They look stunning on Kylie who plays with different hues, textures and styling products to really mix up the end results.
