Here’s a snapshot of the main trends identified by Teiji Utsumi, top international hair stylist who does the hair for fashion shoots in Hello, Elle, Vogue, Harper’s and lots more top mags! (So if he doesn’t know what’s hot – no one does!)
Bobs are totally ‘in’ for this season and the length will include chin-length, sleek cuts that suit Asian hair types so well. Some stylists are reporting a demand for longer bobs, with a retro-look from the 1960’s and 1970’s, which means added volume around the crown from a little back-combing. But overall the most popular bobs are the fabulous short chicasymmetrical bob cuts.

Wavy twisty movement
Waves of all types are popular this year and short Asian hairstyles are reflecting this trend with the addition of modern, twisty waves in bobs and unusually for Asian hairstyles, some attractive long wavy fringes or twisty sections in pixie cuts!
Wet look short Asian hairstyles are still very popular and will be used to vary the look of a bob or shorter haircut. For instance, slicked back hair produces a style that looks (and feels) cool and professional at work and sporty in your ‘off-duty’ activities!

Minimalist short Asian hairstyles
Minimalist hairstyles look fabulous on thick, black Asian hair and although Asian women are not usually known for their love of super-short styles, the current crop of ultra-modern pixie cuts are very face-flattering and trendy.
So if you want to change your image to be contemporary and stylish, you must take a look at the fabulous short Asian hairstyles in our Inspiration Gallery below!

Mixed texture hairstyles
A very new idea, that’s running through hairstyles for all hair types, is styling that incorporates mixed textures. This could be a mix of choppy layers with a few random twists, or a shag-cut with some rough and some smooth sections or any one of a wide range of permutations!
The major theme for the 21st century short Asian hairstyles is unconventionality, so look out for modern styles with shattered layers, textured tapered tips and choppy, uneven tips giving an almost ragged look.
