PHOENIX -- Beyonce's short, new 'do continues to create buzz in hair salons nationwide. And it's leaving women everywhere wondering if they can pull off short locks, too.

Kendall Ong of Mane Attraction Salon has some tips for those thinking about going short.

"I think anyone can get away with wearing their hair short," Ong says. "And it's really a matter of finding the right stylist to create a shape that works with your face shape. That's always the key."

He says you can actually change a face shape with different haircuts. But much of pulling off a successful look has to do with the confidence a woman projects.

"A woman that wears short hair has to have a certain amount of confidence," says Ong. "You've got to have this kind of swagger, because it's all you," he says.

One of the main things to consider is the shape of your face. The oval-shaped face is the best candidate for a cropped cut. But if you have a round face, you need to use your cut to elongate it and give it some height.  "If you create a little width, you can narrow it," Ong says.

Those with a rectangular-shaped face should go with a softer bang to shorten the length of the face.

Bottom line? "A great haircut is going to draw attention to your best features," says Ong.
