The Best Short Hairstyles For Fall

Betsey McLain writes for Refinery29.com If the latest batch of celebrities like Emma Watson, Carmen Kass, and Keira Knightley who've cut it all off prove anything, it's that short hairstyles don't have to be boring. Have you got the chops to chop it all off? Here's all the proof you need that going short is worth the loss in length this season.

The Curly Bob

The Tips: Kattia Solano, owner of Butterfly Studio, explains how to get a great curly bob: "People with curly hair don't always think they can go short, but I love curly short hair. It's fun and very different. Try a cut where the shape is slightly softer and rounder with uneven bits, rather than just straight across. Shorter looks can bring out your eyes, lips, and cheek bones, depending on the lines of the cut, but if you have a wider face, stick with a length below the chin or closer to your shoulders. Always make sure to use products that help give the hair texture, separation, and hold."

The Boy Cut
The Tips: To some, going super short is a huge risk, so we turned to stylist and co-owner of ION Studio, Leonardo Manetti, for his expert advice: "Keeping it long on top makes the look more versatile and fun; you won't feel as stuck in a styling rut."

"For a spiky or rockabilly look, add a texturizer or volumizing product before blowdrying and use the blowdryer to help shape your look. You can use a flatiron to smooth out the ends and finish with hairspray."

"For a more sleek look, add a texturizer to damp hair, then blow-dry the hair down in a swoop along the front and slicked back along the slides. After drying, add a light gel or hairspray to keep the look shiny and slick."

The Messy Bob
The Tips: The bob gets a modern, unkempt update that works for any length—even angled. Devin Toth, Senior Stylist at the Ted Gibson Salon shows us how: "To style a messy bob, apply Ted Gibson Build It, or a similar volumizing and texturizing product, to damp hair and then rough dry with a blowdryer. Flat iron just the ends to add definition. Finish with Ted Gibson Beautiful Hold hairspray. Spray the hairspray perpendicular to the blow dryer (direct the hairspray into the hair using the blow dryer). Any face shape can wear this style, and, an angled style, longer in the front than in the back, will make the look edgier by pushing everything forward."

Kafe Jojo Little Kitchen - Subang Jaya

This is another cafe situated at SS15, Subang Jaya which is also popular for its pan mee noodles.  My colleagues and some of students did suggest to me on trying out this cafe, in fact, they also told that the pan mee here somehow tasted better than from  Face To Face Noodle Restaurant. I was curious to find out myself thus, decided to have lunch with my colleague at Cafe Jojo.

Since it was an early lunch, we managed to find a place immediately.  With so much of variety of pan mee on the menu, I was a bit not sure on what to order. Not only noodles,  but also quite a choice of drinks and desserts too.

After much flipping of the menu, we decided to have the knife cut noodle (dried prawn soup) and hot and spicy pan mee soup.  Both of us chose the same drink of sugarcane and waterchestnut.

Generous serving of a big bowl of noodles with minced pork balls and veges floating inside with fried anchovies and spicy sambal served separately. My colleague insisted that I try the soup and surely it was full of flavours.  She did like it very much.
My order of the hot and spicy pan mee soup was for sure spicy, what more with adding the dippings/sauces available. The green chilly dipping was power enough for me.
The sugarcane and waterchestnut drink was a perfect combination to cold down the spicy and hot taste of the noodle.

By the time we were done with enough eating, the cafe was getting crowded with more customers walking in.  We decided to empty my seating place to give way to others. All in, we paid RM13.50 for this delicious lunch.

I have to agree that the food at this cafe was much more tastier than the pan mee noddles I tasted sometime back at Restaurant Face To Face. Its not difficult to locate Cafe Jojo, same row as McDonalds, just further down.
