Gamine is the term for short hairstyles associated with people having a gamine body type. It’s flattering for those with a rounded head, nose, cheeks, cheekbones, and sharp jawline.
This short hairstyle was popularized in the late 50s and early 60s. The first celebrities spotted with such haircuts are Shirley Maclaine, Mitzie Gaynor, and Leslie Caron.
This boyish, chic look is characterized by short tousled hair with layers around the face and top of the ears.
A flamboyant gamine is one of the body types under the gamine category. Features of this individual lean more towards masculine qualities — wide bone and muscle structure, medium-sized eyes, and less-full lips.
