Hair is a wonderful way to make a personal statement. You can give yourself a new look with just a quick haircut or new style. If you are looking to switch up your look, getting a short hairstyle can be just the ticket.
However, there are so many kinds of short hairstyles; it can be hard to pick one! If you follow the tips in this article, you can definitely find a great style that will suit your personality and make the statement you want.
Bobs are a super cute and sleek haircut. They are generally chin length or slightly longer in the front, getting gradually shorter towards the back. Bob haircuts are typically easy to manage and style. Plus, they do not require a lot of product to keep them in place.
Bobs typically look the best on people with heart shaped faces. This means that you have cheekbones that are wider than your jawbone. A perfect example of a great face for a bob haircut is Victoria Beckham’s.
The Pixie Cut
The pixie cut is a haircut that is spunky and soft. It gives you an aura of confidence. There are not many women who can rock a really short haircut! Pixie cuts are a great option if you want a very short haircut with lots of options. These cuts can have longer bangs in the front while being shorter on top. You can have it short all over, or even cute side-swept bangs.
The one downside of these haircuts is that they often require quite a bit of styling. Plus, you have to use gel or mousse to keep them in place. If you have a smaller, round face or a square face (meaning your cheekbones are the same width as your jawbone), then a pixie cut is an excellent choice for your short hairstyle.
The Messy Cut
A lot of mid-length cuts look great when they are a little mussed rather than plastered against your head. The styled yet “I just rolled out of bed look” is sexy with a touch of sophistication. The great thing about a messy cut is that you can turn almost any type of short hairstyle into a messy one. All you have to do is use some well-placed styling gel and some hairspray to hold your perfectly placed tresses in place.
Almost any short hairstyle will look amazing with a ton of layers. When your stylist adds layers, it means that he or she is cutting the top part of your hair shortest, while cutting each layer underneath a bit longer than the one before. Almost every celebrity has had some kind of layered, short haircut.
Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, and Kelly Osbourne are just a few examples. You can have a lot of layers, or only a few, but either way layers add texture and depth to your hair. Plus, when your hair is layered you do not have get cut as often because grow out and split ends are much less noticeable.
Curly Short Hair
If you have curly hair, do not feel like you cannot pull off a short hairstyle! While it is true that most short hairstyles are depicted on models with straight (or at least chemically straightened hair), curly haired girls can look amazing with a short haircut.
Charlize Theron, Meg Ryan, Rihanna, Eva Longoria-Parker and Jenna Elfman are just a few celebrities that have rocked very curly, very beautiful short hairstyles. Most women with curly hair look best with chin to cheekbone length locks.
“Shag” is a general term for a short haircut that is somewhat messy with tons of layers. They are super easy to style, plus they are unique and always fashionable.
This cut can be adapted easily to fit your face shape, so it looks great on anyone. The only downside to a short shag cut is that it takes awhile to grow back, so a longer shag cut is recommended if you don’t have a lot of patience when it comes to hair growth.
Short hairstyles can be a great, fun way to make a new statement or expression about yourself. If you follow the tips above, you will be sure to get a haircut that suits you perfectly.
